Short-term strain and waiting periods in a long list of container ports in various regions will become the norm, but it is not a general market problem even though certain regions around the world are vulnerable to congestion, says Drewry in a brief on the basis of reports in recent months pointing to difficulties in areas such as Northern Europe and several places in Asia.
