Sea freight has soared and hit a new high record, it has reached 10,000 US dollars to some places.
According to the latest index of the Shanghai Shipping Exchange, the shipping market has maintained a high level recently, and some routes have increased significantly.
On North American routes, port congestion is frequent, and the unpacking of materials is blocked. The lack of boxes in the market has never been alleviated.
On the Persian Gulf route, the demand remained stable and the supply-demand relationship was relatively balanced. The market freight rate rose slightly.
On Australia and New Zealand routes, transportation demand is basically stable, and the relationship between supply and demand remains good.
On South American routes, the raging epidemic has affected the production capacity of South American countries, and transportation demand has remained high. Most airlines have raised their booking prices, and market freight rates have risen.
At present, it is expected that the status of the shipping market will hardly be improved this year. Lack of containers, rising freight rates, and shipping schedule delays are likely to continue.
