India's container shortage causes delays in exports
New Jersey-based Worldwide Logistics, a logistics company, said that the shortage of containers has spread to India, with inland container warehouses being the most serious, and shortages in ports are also obvious. Most direct and transshipment services from the main gateway ports of Mumbai and Mondela to the east and west coasts of the United States have been affected, and the tightness of space from Asian transshipment centers has further exacerbated transshipment.
Conbox Logistics CEO Rakesh Pandit also believes that the shortage of containers in inland terminals is particularly serious. He said: "If carriers have to plan to ship goods from dry ports in central and western India, the shortage will be even worse."
"Some industries need to wait one to two weeks to receive orders and containers, such as pharmaceutical companies, which have to wait nearly two weeks to receive orders from US ports. Planned goods such as marble, rice and other agricultural commodities. Delivery was also delayed."
