What is blank sailing?

Blank sailing, or void sailing occurs when the carrier decides to skip or cancel the shipment on particular ports or regions when on a scheduled route. 


There can be a number of reasons why the carrier has to make the decision. It could be bad weather, port congestions, or other changes in market dynamics that can disrupt the shipping schedule.
