    Ensuring the integrity of your supply chain remains our focus. We note the rapidly arising consequences from the current situation. The extended transit times remain vague. The knock-on effect of such a situation is that a huge bottleneck will arise on demand with limited space on Vessels, missing equipment and consequently, a spike in rates.
