Allyn International is committed to providing you with the latest updates during this very fluid and ever-changing period. Our goal with the information provided below is to give you at a high-level, a current overview of the most heavily impacted regions.
The global shipping industry took another hit this past week when the 1,200-foot container vessel Ever Given ran aground in the Suez Canal blocking the major ocean highway between Asia and Europe. Crews worked around-the-clock for six days to dislodge the vessel. As of last evening, ships began to move through the canal again without incident. It is expected to take approximately one week for the remainder of the backlogged vessels to make their way through the canal.
The following tables will provide the current cargo transport operational status and capacity levels for heavily affected countries.
