How to deal with the departure of international shipping and dumping!

2024-07-05 09:02

In international shipping, there are two terms that are often mentioned, namely "port skipping" and "dumping". While these two concepts are sometimes confused, they have different meanings and implications in practice. This article will explain the difference between these two terms in detail and explore their impact on the transportation of goods. 

1. What is port skipping?

Port Omission is when a ship skips a scheduled port of call on its original route and goes straight to its next destination. This is usually due to flight delays, bad weather, port congestion, or other uncontrollable factors. As a direct consequence of port skipping, the cargo cannot be unloaded at the originally planned port and has to wait for the vessel to arrive at the next port of call or rearrange for another mode of transport.

2. What is a dump cabinet?

Container roll-over refers to the fact that during the loading and unloading process at the port, due to various reasons (such as overloading of the ship, flight delays, etc.), some containers cannot be loaded onto the ship as scheduled, and are left at the port to wait for the next ship to be loaded. This situation can lead to longer transit times and can trigger a series of ripple effects

3. The difference between port skipping and dumping

Although both port hopping and dumping can cause cargo delays, their causes and effects vary. Port skipping is when a ship skips a port during a voyage, mainly due to uncontrollable factors such as weather and port congestion. Dumping is the failure of containers to be loaded onto the ship as scheduled, mainly caused by overloading, delay and other factors. Port skipping affects more of the connection between the route and the port, while the dumping of containers affects the loading and unloading of containers and the loading capacity of ships.

Fourth, how to deal with the port skipping and dumping

In order to deal with the adverse effects of port skipping and dumping, enterprises and logistics companies can take the following measures:

(1) Plan in advance: according to the season, weather and other factors, plan the shipping time and route in advance, and try to avoid peak periods.

(2) Diversified choices: choose multiple ports and routes as alternatives to deal with emergencies

(3) Communication and coordination: strengthen communication with shipping companies and ports, keep abreast of shipping trends, and make emergency plans

(4) Insurance protection: purchase transportation insurance to reduce the economic losses caused by skipping ports or dumping containers.

Port hopping and dumping are common phenomena in international shipping, and while they inevitably have some negative impacts, with proper planning and management, businesses and logistics companies can minimize these impacts. Understanding the reasons for port skipping and dumping and countermeasures can help you better manage the uncertainty in the international shipping process and ensure that the goods arrive at their destination on time and safely.
