‘Delays in sea freight causing High airfreight rates, capacity crunch

Huned Gandhi, MD Air and Sea Logistics, Indian Subcontinent, Dachser India says, “The delays in sea freight have affected productions lines and the industry has no choice but to bridge the gap with airfreight. This has also caused a capacity crunch and increased costs for airfreight. Much of the overflow seen into airfreight is Sea LCL shipments which are getting diverted by air freight, and occasionally, some bigger shipments (FCLs) are also being converted to air freight mode.”
