It is standard in shipping that the lines hesitate to the last second in executing (or not) their GRI.
The Transatlantic GRI westbound announced for July 1st is not any better.
Everybody waits for the others to go first and nobody does it yet, all keep on telling us that the ships are more than full and something has to happen, at the same time some lines are interested in additional cargo…
Allegedly, some customers are just laughing when the GRI is mentioned, while others are said to have offered some numbers already.
All it will take now is one of the big lines to call if off and there will be a good chance that the rest will follow.
Exciting “game” again.
We do not believe that major decisions will be taken this week, the dies will fall next week.
