Minimising negative impact on your supply chain
The spread of the COVID-19 virus within and beyond China is having a major impact on the logistics industry and will continue to cause disruptions for some time. Various industries are facing challenges along their supply chain such as vendor´s low capacity and production, raw material shortages, lead time issues, ocean blank sailings and truck/transport capacity constraints.
"Across geographies, we are pleased that goods continue to flow through our warehouses, terminals and network. Our crews and staff across all facilities are still there to make sure that you get access to your goods when you need them." says Vincent Clerc, CEO of Ocean and Logistics at Maersk.
Storage has become critical as demands across countries have fallen due to lock downs and closure of high-street stores. With COVID-19 delaying deliveries across the world and China restarting operations, we can help to ease congestion at your facilities from the inflow of goods. We have aligned our storage facilities, depots and hubs to help slow down your supply chain in the current climate and speed things up easily at the right time to ensure your business has sufficient stock of goods when demands pick up.
Forward Storage Plus
Slow down your supply chain by increasing the ocean lead time and store the containers in a hub port with a longer layover. Request this at the time of booking or when cargo is on its way to the transit hub to enable fast and controlled delivery with an on-time response to market.
Container Storage solutions at Origin and Destination
Store your cargo at our depots in container yards or port locations to save precious storage space in your facilities and we will deliver your cargo to its final destination once the time is right.
