In recent months we have seen additional cargo moving via Airfreight due to the Red Sea crisis, reducing space availability and increasing costs, political unrest in the Middle East, including Iran’s attack on Israel and the seizing of the MSC Aries container ship, is likely to impact this even further.

Many airlines have cancelled or re-routed flights from the Far East to Middle East destinations, this creates space issues, longer transit times and warehouse congestion.

The situation is expected to worsen in the coming weeks as cargo backs up, some airlines have already stopped taking new bookings.
