Shipping updates and transshipment port delays

Global shipping flows in general continue to show the impact of blank sailings and equipment imbalances.  The level of disruption will vary by country and region and our shipping partner Hillebrand continues to provide updates by country and for the North American market.

One area that continues to be negatively impacted by the shipping flows are transshipment ports.  Manzanillo, Balboa and Cartagena are current hotspots for any cargo routed through to/from North America. 

What we recommend:  

  • Set up notification alerts on to view shipment routings and to keep on top of latest updates for estimated departure / arrival dates. 
  • Adjust your lead times and requested ship dates for longer transit times, especially on freight moving through transshipment ports.
  • Protect your cargo – at minimum choose Hillebrand insulation over dry containers to reduce thermal shock impact on sensitive products.

NASA and Hillebrand are here to help you navigate this ever changing environment and organize transport solutions for your business needs.  We thank you for your continued support; please reach out for any questions.
