Maersk Market Update - Indian Subcontinent and Middle East (October 2021)
We remain committed to finding solutions for you and are preparing ourselves for the upcoming winter as the challenging operational landscape persists. In this ‘Indian Subcontinent and Middle East Market Update’, we provide you with the latest updates on ocean, equipment, landside and air transportation, along with a report on our endeavours to address the bottlenecks in your supply chain and our increased efforts towards having net-zero CO2 emissions in our operations by 2050.
According to industry experts, as much as 10-25% of global capacity can be absorbed due to increased waiting time outside ports, idling of vessels with Covid-19 cases onboard, etc. Despite complete deployment, effective vessel capacity is severely limited and is causing missed sailings. In these challenging times, we see long-term partnerships as the best way to help you build resilience, agility and flexibility into your supply chain and create increased value for your customers.
