ESC Members Remain Concerned about Container Shipping
For many weeks now, ESC members have been expressing their concerns about the capacity crunch in Liner Shipping and the way ship owners handle it. To raise awareness, ESC publishes its first press release on 17 March 2017 on 17 March 2017 in which ESC describes the situation and invites both, authorities and ship owners, for a dialogue.
During ESC’s most recent and well attended Maritime Council held on 28 March 2017, the participants re-enforce their concerns as the situation always stays the same and ask for a more concrete action plan. ESC issues a second press release on 4 April 2017 underlining the problems experienced by shippers and providing a more concrete view on what ESC intends to do.
