The pandemic has undoubtedly created objective difficulties, slowed down traffic that then reopens faster than before to try to make up for lost time, so the containers begin to run out and the inevitable speculation brings their price to the stars.
Not to mention the crisis of components (chip crunch) that is bringing several production sectors to their knees. It's a crisis that can also hit where bargaining power is very strong, as in the case of Sony with its Playstation 5, let alone the difficulties that the nautical sector, made up of small numbers, is facing.
On the other hand, the marine industry is one of the few sectors that has benefited from an increase in demand during this pandemic crisis, but this only adds to the problem of component availability and container shortages.
We at Marine Pan Service have a clear focus on these issues and all our strategic plans are currently aimed at minimising the impact of these difficulties on our customers. However, prices are inevitably fermenting and we have little leverage over this difficulty, so we warn our customers that our price lists will be subject to inevitable increases without warning as never before.
