JERRY & ROSS SAY GOOD-BYE
Dear AWS Agent,
Since January 2007 Jerry DeBow and I have shared responsibility for All World Shipping. We have gratifyingly watched our activity grow and the number of AWS agents increase ten-fold. We have developed excellent business partnerships and made some life-long friends. So it is not without some sadness that we announce that Jerry and I will be retiring from All World Shipping effective March 31st. All good things come to an end!
While Jerry and I are leaving, AWS is certainly not disappearing. In the next few days, AWS and WCA will be making an announcement regarding the new management of AWS. Importantly, Tipwipa P. (Tip) in Thailand and Lisa Green in the U.S. remain in place and will continue to provide their usual excellent customer support.
Jerry and I want to thank WCA management and all of the staff for their support and friendship over the past fourteen years. We want to especially say thank you to David Yokeum whose guidance and support has been indispensable. We could not have accomplished what we have without David and it certainly would not have been as much fun!
Under different circumstances, Jerry and I would have said our good-byes personally at a WCA Conference but in these challenging times of only virtual meetings that hasn’t been possible. With luck maybe we will see you at a WCA Conference in the future!

EVERGREEN: EVER GIVEN Successfully Refloated Normal Transits of Suez Canal Resume
Evergreen Line is pleased to confirm that EVER GIVEN has been successfully refloated within the Suez Canal at approximately 15:04 March 29 local time (21:04 Taipei time). In order for the Canal to resume normal operation, the vessel is leaving the grounding site with assistance of tugboats.
The chartered vessel will be repositioned to the Great Bitter Lake in the Canal for an inspection of its seaworthiness. The outcome of that inspection will determine whether the ship can resume its scheduled service. Once the inspection is finalized, decisions will be made regarding arrangements for cargo currently on board.
Evergreen will coordinate with the shipowner to deal with subsequent matters after the shipowner and other concerned parties complete investigation reports into the incident. EVER GIVEN is a 20,000 TEU-class container ship, currently leased by Evergreen Marine Corp. under a time charter agreement. The ship is deployed on a Far East-Europe service route.

Hapag-Lloyd: North America – Operational Updates
With the large number of congested ports and ships awaiting berths, please understand that the dates for arrivals / departures and cut-offs are constantly changing. Please check our Online Business section regularly for updates on this information.
The UP rail has limited the access to many US inland ramps due to capacity constraints and railcar shortages. This has created a serious backlog in all the on/off dock rail services ex SoCal to all main destinations and is generating delays of more than a week into some inland ramps.
York Terminal Update:
Labor has improved during last week as well. Exports remain two ships open at any given time per service. Empties are a main focus in getting off the port – whether by ship or rail.
Canadian Terminal and Rail Delays Update:
High yard utilization at all terminals in Vancouver as a result of high import volumes. Expected to last well into Q2. Vessel productivity and yard productivity continue to improve as a result of steady rail car supply. This resulted in increased fluidity on terminal. We continue to experience berth delays in VAN of 3 to 8 days. Prince Rupert continues to be a struggle as well.
Dwell time at the Port Terminals:
· Halifax – 3.5 Days*
· Montreal – 4.7 Days*
· Vancouver – 2.8 Days
· Prince Rupert – 3.0 Days*
Dwell time at the Rail Terminals:
· Montreal – 3.5 Days*
· Vancouver – 1.2 Days*
Capacity limitation in certain markets due to import volume spikes and severe drivers’ shortage. Please find main markets, and estimate lead-time to secure capacity below (Note: Lead time refers to timeframe to secure truck power, it is not dwell time):
Market / Average 12-days+:
Markets / Average 7-days+:
