Suez Canal Blockage: Industry Update

Across the Ocean Shipping want to ensure all our customers that we are working continuously to overcome any issues that have risen due to the Suez Canal blockage and subsequent closure. Your concern is at the top of our priority list and we would like to thank you for your continued patience and for showing respect and support for our team as they work hard to support you.

We aim to give you our very best services by providing you with all the tools and information you need. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is for us all to remain positive and unite during these times. Our teams are working around the clock to help resolve any issues so please do not hesitate to reach out for an individual assessment.

There are still hold ups for certain sea freight services with some ports and associated infrastructure resulting in ocean and inland delays which are likely to continue in and out from high demand locations. We have adapted the use of dry containers to lessen the impact on our customer’s supply chains and are confident that we are providing you with top quality services.

Across the Ocean Shipping will continue to provide you with rapid responses and as much clarity as possible. As the impact of Suez Canal reduces, please continue your communication with our friendly team via email, phone and checking our latest updates by visiting

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,
David Aherne
