01/18/2023

Virtually all coastal ports have none, or only one or two ships waiting for berths, while just a handful of ports still have only single digits of waiting vessels in queues including ports of Savannah, Norfolk, Baltimore and Houston. This sharply contrasts to the 150 ships waiting off of U.S. ports a year ago in January of 2022.

HHGs Not Included in EU Sanctions on Russia

12/08/2022
