ESC and export problem, mentioned in the press:

Since ESC’s first press release of the 17th of March 2017, the press reported on the problems that shippers are faced with in ports: the insufficient capacity to take all shipments, no guarantee that all goods of a shipment will be loaded, increasing prices for the available slots. ESC gave interviews and provided additional information to a number of publications:
