The role of global shipping is more important than ever. International transport is critical for keeping store shelves full, healthcare supplied with life-saving medical supplies, and supporting the resilience of national economies.
Yet, challenges worsened by the global pandemic and logistical bottlenecks have thrown the entire global transport industry into a downward spiral.
This quarter, Maadho highlights its unique approach to international ocean freight services and air freight forwarding, helping its clients keep pace with demand and sidestep the logistical nightmares currently plaguing the industry.
A Concerning State of Affairs: International trade disruption
The logistical pipeline responsible for the transport of more than $1 trillion worth of healthcare products, medical supplies, textiles, electronics, raw materials and more, has all but ground to a halt.
Not only has this resulted in shipping delays, but it has also increased the prices of transportation, with a standard shipping container now hitting a record average cost of $20,586 from China to the US West Coast, nearly double the price from back in July 2021.
Staffing challenges at ports and warehouses, as well as delivery truck drivers and challenges regarding essential freight handling equipment, has added fuel to the fire. As of October 11th, California’s Marine Exchange reports that there are currently 61 container ships anchored and 25 at berth in the areas between Los Angeles and Long Beach, as of Oct. 11.
The global pandemic exposed weaknesses in the global supply chain as well as national transportation systems, including but not limited to:
- Railroad industry labor cuts
- Lack of investment into key ports
- Chronic failure of key stakeholders in the industry to effectively collaborate
- Labor shortages
- American demand has outpaced manufacturing and shipping capacities overseas
- And more…
