Containers are one of the most widely used solutions in international trade. They are often seen travelling on large cargo ships, but before that, they are transported by lorries. Consequently, road transport also plays an important role in shipping.Unfortunately, because they are so widespread, the amount of smog and pollution they produce is just too much. This is why we are talking about electric trucks. This is a new way of managing transport with an eye to the environment, but not only. So let's see how the impact of these new vehicles affects container transport costs.
As is well known, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused a great deal of damage. In addition to the public health damage, which is of paramount importance, the economic damage should not be underestimated. At Lesam International Group, we organise and manage international shipments all over the world, and our industry has also been hard hit by the pandemic wave.
International trade is based on strict regulations. One of these is the payment of customs duties, which are taxes levied on the value of all products imported and exported by the country imposing them.
In today's guide we will discover the causes that are causing a reduction in the availability of containers, with the relative consequences on maritime transport.
