COVID-19 – Cargo Shifts from Air to Ocean

COVID-19 – Cargo Shifts from Air to Ocean

Air freight has traditionally been the option for time-sensitive shipments of all kinds. But as the COVID-19 crisis develops and air traffic is significantly restricted globally, air cargo has been severely impacted. Businesses who used to rely primarily on air cargo are turning increasingly to ocean shipping as the solution.

CFR is here for you: as ports all over the world continue to operate and all of CFR’s warehouses and offices remain open, we are able to obtain containers and receive, load and ship your freight. We’ll take care of all your freight forwarding needs along the way. Please contact our staff 24/7 for any questions.

What About the COVID Impacts on Ocean Transportation?

Naturally, there have been major challenges in recent weeks in the logistics chain due to social distancing and other safety requirements – in warehousing, trucking and the ports. But shipping vehicles and other cargo by ocean container remains a very reliable option. Our highly trained and experienced staff knows how to navigate the challenging logistics landscape. In fact, this week CFR has launched its first train with brand-new vehicles from China to Europe – a good sign of a future return to normal after COVID-19.

CFR will continue to update you on industry developments during these volatile times. Please reach out to our agents with any questions or concerns.

Stay safe!
