Ceasefire? Another freighter under attack! Face sinking! The crew is missing! The crisis is difficult to solve, the freight rate is difficult to reduce...

The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday adopted a resolution calling for an "immediate, comprehensive and complete" ceasefire in the Gaza Strip to bring an early end to the eight-month-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

As soon as this news came out, the June 11 container index futures opened higher and lower, diving sharply during the day, the main contract (EC2408) fell more than 9% during the day, and the far month EC2410, 2412, 2502, 2504 contracts also touched the limit. Meanwhile, the share prices of Hapag-Lloyd, Maersk, Evergreen, Yang-Ming, Wanhai and other shipping companies also fell.sea shipping agent in China

According to Reuters, a spokesman for German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd said on June 11 that even if Hamas and Israel reached a ceasefire agreement now, it would be difficult for the shipping industry to resume navigation through the Suez Canal in the short term.door to door shipping service

"Even if there is a ceasefire now, it does not mean that Houthi attacks will stop immediately," the spokesman said.

Hapag-lloyd added that even if the Suez Canal reopened to traffic, it would take at least four to six weeks to rescheduling the schedule to get operations back to normal.

The Red Sea crisis is having an unprecedented impact on the shipping industry. Due to Houthi attacks on merchant vessels in Yemen, shipping companies are avoiding the Suez Canal and choosing to take longer routes, which has significantly increased the range and operating costs.FCL container shipping of 20GP

Maersk declined to comment. The company's CEO had said in February that the company needed a permanent solution before it would consider returning to the Red Sea.

For now, the risk in the Red Sea region has not diminished,
According to the CCTV news client, an official of the Yemeni government coast guard said on the 12th local time that a cargo ship was attacked by Houthi armed forces in the waters near the main port city of Hodeida in the Yemeni Red Sea on the same day, causing the hull to enter the water and one crew member to go missing.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the ship, the Mentor, was operated by a Greek shipping company. The freighter was rammed by a small boat loaded with explosives some 67.7 nautical miles from Hodeida. The small boat exploded at the rear of the freighter, causing the ship's hull to break and take on water. The ship has lost power and is adrift at sea. The cargo ship reported that one crew member was missing after the explosion, and 21 crew members from various countries were on board.

The British Office of Maritime Trade Operations confirmed on the 12th that a cargo ship was attacked in the waters near Hodeida. The office said a small white boat, about 5 to 7 meters long, collided with the stern of the freighter. The freighter has taken on water and is "out of control". The freighter was hit by a "UFO" after being attacked by a small boat.
