Red Sea Logistics

In response to Israel’s war against Hamas, Houthi rebels have been assaulting container vessels in the Red Sea for months now. This has been causing significant disruptions to one of the world’s crucial trade routes.

Container ships, which transport a wide range of goods originating from manufacturers in Asia and destined for customers in Europe, have been opting for lengthier routes via the Cape of Good Hope to circumvent the affected area. The rerouting is expected to extend the duration of a journey by approximately 14-25 additional days compared to the conventional route through the Red Sea.


The Suez Canal, linking the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, plays a significant role in global trade. It constitutes 10-15% of world trade, encompassing oil exports and contributes to 30% of the total global container shipping volumes.

With the consequential delays and additional expenses for shipping, companies have raised worries that consumers–already grappling with the aftermath of an extended period of rampant inflation–might face new increases in prices.
Amidst the present ambiguity in trade routes, businesses within the supply chain industry are navigating the complexities of redirecting shipments and exploring alternative logistics options. This has paved the way for revolutionary multimodal transport opportunities.
