The container shipping market is currently making many headlines world-wide as freight rates and port congestion continue to reach new record highs. At the end of September, more than 50 container ships were waiting to berth outside the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach alone and 90% of those arriving at a port had to wait at anchor before a berth became available.
