The COVID-19 pandemic has created an extremely volatile market for international trade and transportation. With measures taken by authorities worldwide to contain the coronavirus such as lockdown and community quarantine, passenger flights departures are significantly reduced due to travel ban. As a result, capacity shortage, together with high demand of urgent transport of medical supplies, keeps stimulating the air freight rate. While shippers are shifting to sea freight, the transit time may not be ideal for long haul shipments that aims to arrive at destination in less than a month’s time.
