Red Sea / Suez Canal Disruptions – Shipping Attacks: December 18, 2023

Posted by Expeditors on Dec 18, 2023 3:56:30 PM

The situation in the Middle East has heightened with additional vessels attacked in the Red Sea over the past few days.

Vessel operators are now being asked to re-route or idle ships that normally would enter the Red Sea. Most vessel operators are avoiding transit via the Red Sea / Suez Canal with immediate effect and until further notice. At this point, it is very difficult to advise the arrival times of each vessel until the situation becomes more stable.

Expeditors will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with our carrier partners for updates.  

Please reach out to your local Expeditors representative if you have any questions or concerns.
