Navigating the challenges of maritime shipping: the Suez Canal crisis

The ongoing crisis in the Suez Canal is causing significant disruptions to shipping routes today. Both imports and exports are feeling the impact. However, at Akomar, we do not navigate blindly into these unknown waters.  

Challenges arising from the Suez Canal crisis 

  • Alternative Routes: Ships are being rerouted via longer paths such as around the Cape of Good Hope, increasing fuel costs and delivery times. 
  • Delays and Cancellations: The increased pressure and changing conditions lead to inevitable delays and the cancellation of destinations. 
  • Rising Costs: Higher freight rates and insurance premiums are putting cost pressure on shipping companies and their customers.
