Freight Rate

8/10/2012

We regret to advise that it is no longer possible for us to report freight rate changes as before. A number of ocean carriers have decided to report their freight rates to Container Trades Statistics Ltd (CTS) previously European Liner Affairs Association (ELAA) instead, this leaves us with insufficient information to give accurate coverage.

The freight rates shown are all-in, ie including CAFs and BAFs etc, plus THCs where gate/gate rates have been agreed, and inland haulage where CY/CY rates have been agreed. All rates are average rates of all commodities carried by major carriers. Rates to and from the US refer to the average for all three coasts.

2002 transatlantic and transpacific rates have been adjusted to cater for a change in the data-base since 1.1.2003. All rates going back to Q4 2002 have also been adjusted to take into account new carriers now contributing to this analysis.
