The Coronavirus is causing some disruptions around the world and it can be felt in shipping, transportation, from suppliers to end users. The good news is, many experts say it will only cause a short disruption in trade and supply and demand for goods such as steel and aluminum, for example. We continue to work with partners in the Americas, to both supply and grow these markets.
Transportation & Exports
Many ports and transporation hubs are having to adjust their loads and logistics in response to changes in cargo shipments in and out of ports. The Port of New Orleans has felt a slight change, with a couple of China-based container ships cancelling calls. As one of the leading cruise ship ports, New Orleans has made sure to take extra precautions for its cruise passengers as well. However, we continue to be a leader in exports and imports of many goods, particularly those in energy-related industries.
