Injections of more transpacific capacity adds to congestion

CONTAINER lines continued to increase deployment of transpacific services, with 22 per cent more capacity available to Americas west coast, according to eeSea, a platform that maps carrier schedules.

Carriers are also adding 14.4 per cent more capacity to the US east coast through year-, eeSea said, reported IHS Media.Carriers in recent months have announced dozens of extra-loader vessel deployments and several new weekly services to meet surging demand by US consumers that is projected to remain strong through the of the year.

US imports from Asia increased 32.4 per cent in the first seven months of the year over the same period last year, and 21.7 per cent from pre-Covid 2019, according to PIERS.

But the increase in capacity is likely to further stress ports that are already conting with vessel bunching in the early days of peak shipping season. For example, there are 40-plus vessels at anchorage in Los Angeles-Long Beach awaiting space, while terminals each day are working about 30 containerships at berth, with more vessels scheduled to arrive daily, according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California.

Alan Murphy, CEO of Sea-Intelligence Maritime Analysis, said the next three months will be difficult for ports and their severely taxed inland supply chains.

"Within the coming months, carriers are aiming at what can at best be described as a capacity explosion on the transpacific trade - good for a booming market, but it could lead to even worse congestion," Mr Murphy said.
