Shipping giant Maersk said recently that due to global port congestion, more than 10% of the global container fleets are currently waiting to enter ports, affecting 12.5% of capacity worldwide.

With the coming peak season in the fourth quarter, the growth in trade volume will raise the demand for logistics services, which will also lead to a more serious shortage of capacity and vessel delays.

According to Maersk, the shipping delays and port congestion were expected to be severer in the fourth quarter, which might result in a worse shortage of containers.
