Indian ports are facing major challenges on getting “empty containers” to ship, especially in dry ports in India. Essentially, container shortages are becoming common due to less import rotation of containers from outside countries. Most of the carriers are repositioning empty containers from Nhava Sheva Mumbai and Mundra ports in India.
Some of the prime carriers have inventories at dry ports in Delhi, Jodhpur, Jaipur, and Moradabad. However, forecasting the container needed ahead and re-positioning empty containers from yard in advance is essential.
As per the current market study, export container movements have increased from Indian ports for the last two months.
Blue Bell Logistics Pvt. Ltd. is coordinating with carrier surveyor to allot an empty containers at least a week prior to avoid further delays.
