Maersk Says All Vessels Due to Transit the Red Sea Will Be Diverted For ‘Foreseeable Future’

Despite warnings from the U.S. and other countries to cease attacks, the Houthi rebels show no signs of stopping. Shipping company Maersk says that as the situation continues to evolve and “remains highly volatile,” they have made the decision to divert all Maersk vessels that are due to transit the Red Sea/ Gulf of Aden for “the foreseeable future.” Vessels that were due to travel through the Red Sea will continue to be diverted south around the Cape of Good Hope.

US-led Forces in Red Sea will be Defensive ‘Highway Patrol’

The longer container lines detour from the Red Sea around the Cape of Good Hope, the more vessel capacity will be soaked up, and the higher freight rates will go. Rates are already rebounding. New surcharges just announced by ocean carriers imply freight costs are headed higher still.

Container lines have a perfectly valid reason to avoid going through the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait from a corporate governance perspective: They cannot guarantee the safety of their seafarers, ships or cargo due to indiscriminate attacks by Yemen’s Houthi rebels...
