On the ocean

Under the uncertainty triggered by Covid-19 pandemic, we are trying to meet customers’ needs related to space, schedule and transit time. Volumes for June are expected to be slightly higher than May. However, in some cases, transhipment options may have to be arranged due to weaker market demand and disruptions to production output. We kindly ask for your understanding for potential service disruptions under the current circumstances.
