Market Update: Non-stop demand and the lingering effects of the Suez blockage.

Market Update:

Non-stop demand and the lingering effects of the Suez blockage drove a 17% increase in container freight rates this month with a new high of $5,115/FEU.

Delays, disruptions, and the empty container shortage are having the greatest impact on lanes reliant on the Suez, but prices are climbing everywhere.

  • Asia-Mediterranean rates crossed the $10,000/FEU mark, increasing 27% in May and 44% since the start of the year.
  • Asia-US East Coast rates climbed 18% to $7,328/FEU.
  • Asia-US West Coast rates also increased, 11% for the month and 28% so far this year, to $5,379/FEU.
  • Asia-Europe prices, closing the month at $9,220/FEU, six times its level a year ago.
  • Europe-US East Coast rates are up 27% to $4,046/FEU and Europe-South America East Coast prices climbed 35% to $2,054/FEU. Rates on both lanes have more than doubled since the start of the year.

With peak season just around the corner and retail inventory levels still lagging, volumes will likely stay elevated through the end of the year.

Asia-US East Coast routes may be affected as well since 30% of shipments along these routes travel via the Suez

Importers have continued facing high prices in recent weeks, with high demand for consumer goods keeping ocean volumes and prices up.

On top of that, we’re sure you heard the news of a massive container ship getting stuck in the Suez Canal and blocking traffic for six days.

As a result, Asia-Europe routes are expected to see delays followed by congestion as delayed and scheduled vessels arrive all at once. Asia-US East Coast routes may be affected as well since 30% of shipments along these routes travel via the Suez, but the lull and surge will likely be less severe. Asia-US West Coast routes should not feel too much of an impact other than possibly reduced container capacity.
