Russia-Ukraine conflict heightens tensions in global supply chains, with shipping fees skyrocketing, all combined making it hard for e commerce sellers to make money. Moreover, it might take longer than usual to ship inventory to the fulfillment centers and have items delivered to customers.
After Maersk, MSC, CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd, and ONE have successively suspended operations in Russia and Ukraine, Maersk and CMA CGM expand the scope of business suspension, including the suspension of Belarusian business and railway and air transport related businesses! According to data from Alphaliner, an international shipping industry analysis agency, the total shipping capacity of these five shipping companies accounts for nearly 60% of the global market.
Aside from bulk commodity exports, Russia and Ukraine are not big global trading nations, but they are located on one of the oldest trade routes in the world, and even the main route of China’s initiative “One Belt, One Road”. On this route, sea transportation of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus is restricted and cannot operate normally, and now even the air and railway transportation are also restricted.

Faced with so many challenges, what can amazon sellers do to make a fortune during Prime Day?
