The key with the Suez situation is the ability for the cargo ships behind Ever Given to make decisions and forecast outcomes. What is the impact to my end customer if this is longer than 2 days? What additional costs will we incur by re-routing via the Cape? Is there a weather event on the alternative route that would mean we would be better to stay put for longer and see this through?. The outcomes can impact cost, service, waste and time, all expensive commodities, so the right decisions need to be made by scenario modelling the drivers in real time.5 April 2021
