Container Spot Rates Reach a Near 2 Year High

According to Drewry Shipping Consultants spot container rates have hit near a 2 year high this week.

Drewry says it expects the surge in volume due to an early Chinese New Year will support further increases in spot rates in the next week or so but there remains doubt if the gains will last beyond the Chinese New Year rush.

The latest weekly reading is $1,770 per 40-foot-equivalent unit for the composite World Container Index, the London-based consultancy reports.

This reflects increases on individual trade lanes to $1,785 for the Rotterdam-New York index, up $4 on the week; $2,210 for Shanghai-Rotterdam, an increase of $257 for the week, and $2,160 for the Shanghai-Los Angeles route, up $545 from last week.

On the back of Jan. 1 general rate increases, the World Container Index between Shanghai and Rotterdam increased 13 percent.
The last time the WCI composite index exceeded $1,700 per FEU was in March 2015, before the outbreak of the 2015 and 2016 price war.

According to the Journal of Commerce, a majority of shippers surveyed in December expect their trans-Pacific contract rates to increase this year, with the majority, preparing for increases of 1 percent to 10 percent. More than 20 percent of those surveyed expected rate increases 10 to 20 percent.
