Maersk large container ship stranded accident

Maersk's super large container ship, with a capacity of 20,568 TEU, ran aground on February 2, local time, when it was sailing from the Dutch port of Rotterdam (Rotterdam) to the German port of Bremen (Bremerhaven).It is affiliated to four domestic ports, including Shanghai, Ningbo, Tianjin and Dalian, and also accepts goods from East China and North China to Europe.

Maersk Line said the ship was unloading from Asia, so the cargo destined to the port of Bremen was still there, and the port was stranded on the bay.

The global situation in Hong Kong has not eased

Kuehne + Nagel, a global leading logistics company, has developed a new key performance index, "Seaexplorer Disruption Indicator (Logistics Disruption Index)," designed to measure port efficiency and provide higher visibility of port bottlenecks for shippers and their service providers.Based on waiting capacity (TEU) and the number of delays per ship for each ship, this indicator will generate a "TEU waiting days" data and is updated daily.

The index showed that cumulative container delays in the Seaexplorer-covered hotspot port areas reached a staggering 11.56 million TEU waiting days as of January 19, with 80% of the world's port congestion occurring in North America.The number of ships stranded in global ports is no less than before the Christmas holiday, with 564 of the 25 million containers of 5,700 ships worldwide and 2.4 million containers still waiting.

Otto Schact, executive vice president of Dexin Shipping Logistics, observed that shippers can only expect the global supply chain to return to normal when the index falls below 1 million TEU waiting days, when both the reliability and delivery cycle will improve.
