Weekly highlights

The increase in Covid cases in China is reportedly having some impact on manufacturing and logistics operations. But as demand for exports is easing in any case, resulting delays may not be felt very widely, for now.

Normalizing supply chains may be reflected in transpacific ocean rates that are now about even with rates in January 2020 for both coasts.

Asia – N. Europe rates are still more than 40% higher than in early 2020, possibly due to some lingering congestion and increases in blank sailings.

Asia-US rates for this week:

  • Asia-US West Coast prices (FBX01 Weekly) were unchanged at $1,382/FEU. This rate is 89% lower than the same time last year.
