As early as possible, the carrier attempted to launch a booking cancellation fee to reduce the number of booked cases but failed to board the ship. Last year, Herb Roth tried to set up $40 with the Maersk Line to cancel the booking fee, but in the end it failed. This is mainly because they are largely unenforceable. This leads to a careless prediction of shippers and a lack of attention to booking space, which also results in a ship company that is estimated to exceed 1/4. The end result was a disruption of the cargo ship and freight supply chain.
There is no indication that the carrier will levy a booking cancellation fee, while only for some routes, or operators are testing the market acceptance of new costs, in order to launch all sectors. The industry also believes that this is a trend, the follow-up or more shipping companies will join the levy, booking, cancellation fees.
