Trickle turns into a flood as containerships opt for Cape Route
American Shipper
Post Date

The number of containerships that have opted to use the Cape Route and bypass the Suez Canal has risen to a historic peace-time high. Since the of March, Alphaliner has tracked at least 20 sailings that used the longer route via the Cape of Good Hope.

Rather unusually, even three westbound Asia - Europe headhaul sailings have opted for the Cape Route, all of them operated by CMA CGM. Carriers very rarely choose this longer route for the transit-time sensitive headhaul, but the current low bunker price and lack of demand in European markets, hit by the COVID-19 lockdowns, have suddenly made such moves viable.

In addition, nine eastbound Europe - Asia sailings and eight eastbound US East Coast - Asia sailings have also chosen to take the longer route to avoid paying the usual Suez Canal tolls. These diversion will cost the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) over $10M in lost ges. This comes on top of revenue losses from a record number of cancelled sailings on both the Asia - Europe and Asia - US East Coast routes since February.

These losses forced the SCA to grant further discounts to discourage ship diversions. After a first round of rebates for ships that return from Europe, announced on 30 March, proved insufficient, a new rebate scheme for containerships returning to Asia from Europe and North America was announced on 30 April (see page 2 for details). Several sailings nevertheless opted for the Cape Route in May - even after the higher discounts were made available.
