Since this is done mostly online, shipping lines are issuing bookings. The challenge is to arrange for associated services like transportation and customs clearance. Also, a lot of shipping lines are skipping calls on various Indian ports and this has lead to delays in shipments moving out of India and the backlog it creates.
We recommend that you keep checking our website for updates. This will help you in planning your movements efficiently.
Shipping line offices are closed at the moment and this has affected the BL printing and related services. There are some lines that have provided freight forwarders with BL printing facilities but this has also been affected due to restriction on movement of people.
Please expect a delay in BL reaching you post the shipment. We recommend that customers go for Surrender or Seaway BL, as much as possible.
Import laden boxes are being evacuated from the CFS from 10 AM to 6 PM due to Maharashtra government's amended lockdown order. Export containers are moving on a case to case basis.
If your cargo is stuck in the CFS for exports or imports, expect a delay in getting your cargo in or out. There is still an acute shortage of trailers and this has led to delays in delivery of containers.
Some transport movement has started due to the amended notification of the government. But the deliveries are still largely affected due to lack of drivers for the trailers.
This has a cascading effect on ports, CFS, Factories and Consumers besides many others. Please get in touch with us to understand if your cargo can be delivered.
You can see below references to get the most up to date information about the lockdowns and how it may impact your business. Stay safe!
