As we move halfway into 2020, I would have never imagined we’d be in the middle of a global health pandemic. Yet to believe we’ll emerge as anything less than stronger than ever is equally unfathomable.
Positivity, strength, and teamwork will once again guide us safely to solid shores.
In late June, industry publication American Shipper reported freight volume upswing and continued improvements. It also noted the softening of 105 previously predicted trans-Pacific blank sailings. There were only 26 cancellations as of mid-June.
While we still have a long journey ahead, remaining positive and strong will sustain our industry through 2020 and beyond.
