A year after the Coronavirus hit us, the world is in a state of anxiety even now. As we all know, every time, a new wave of infections starts despite strict control measures. Even though vaccines are out now, the threat still looms over. Every aspect of human life has been affected following the global pandemic. So is the case with freight movement too. The SARS-CoV-2 has affected freight transportation thoroughly. Both the domestic as well as international companies bore the brunt during the early and mid-phase of 2020. However, it gradually got better towards the end of last year, it is not in full swing, though in many parts of the world, lockdowns are getting imposed on containment areas. Hence, it’s not a smooth flow for the freight transport sector.
In the beginning, people started to stock up essential food products as they were clueless about how and when this situation would be under control. There was a demand for necessary items always, but the global supply chain had got disrupted thoroughly in an unimaginable way. Freight shipping rates went down to the minimum due to lack of demand and shipments were almost stopped. We have witnessed global air freighter services such as FedEx and UPS have suspended many flight operations due to the decline in demand. Mostly, the reasons for the decline in air and sea freight transport was the reason that many countries were forced to close borders as a result of the pandemic. As a result, factories and businesses were shut down everywhere the globe owing to the shortage of raw material supply. It further put pressure on the global freight transport industry. Freight transport by road also declined due to the sudden surge in infections everywhere, but not hit as hard as air and sea freight movement.
The international freight forwarding market has been shrunk thoroughly during 2020 as against the previous year. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected air and sea freight traffic globally during the following year of pandemic, from March 2020 onwards until December 2020. Air shipping got affected the most. The total airfreight volume declined considerably from March 2020 until the lifting of lockdown restrictions in many parts of the world.
When we mull over the current situation, there is a ray of hope that things would get back to normal anytime as many vaccines are in place now. However, we all know there will not be a sudden reversal of the situation we currently face, but gradually it would revert when industries, factories and businesses make a comeback. The present conditions provide a positive assurance that everything will be back to normal and it would help the freight transport industry too.
