The Red Sea situation has been going on for over two months now.

What does that mean? You can find out in this market update!

CAROZ’s eye opener:

The normalisation of the Red Sea situation may provide short-term relief, but concerns about overcapacity and market stability persist. Proactive strategies, such as adjusting rates and implementing blank sailings, are necessary to adapt to changing market dynamics. Additionally, the eventual return of ships to the Suez route will require careful planning and logistical expertise to manage increased cargo volumes effectively.
