Situation in Suez Canal #5
Last update - March 31st, 2021
Dear Valued Customers,
The CMA CGM Group continues to monitor and inform its customers on the actions implemented to allow for a fast resumption of traffic in the Suez Canal and a complete return to normal operational conditions, and to relay its recovery action plan.
The capacity of a daily convoy remains estimated at 80 transit per day (in and out) and the situation may change depending on further development.
Operational outlook for CMA CGM Group vessels:
- We expect that Southbound backlog will be cleared by tomorrow, April 1st, and Northbound backlog by Friday, April 2nd.
- For vessels arrivals between today until the weekend, delays of 1-2 days may be expected ; and we expect a more normalized situation by next week.
Please do not hesitate to contact your usual CMA CGM commercial representative should you have any further question.
