This naturally has consequences on various fronts, resulting in increasing costs due to factors such as extended voyage times and reduced available capacity. The longer voyage time of +15-20 days leads to higher fuel costs, increased CO2 costs (EU ETS), rising insurance costs due to prolonged time at sea, and a decrease in capacity: now only 4 instead of 6 round trips per year.
Tensions in the Suez Canal area continue to rise, with various countries taking actions. The implications for transportation, both in the short and long term, remain unclear.
