HMM is tackling the shortage of containers in Asia as markets rebound from pandemic restrictions earlier this year. The scarcity of boxes has hit the main East-West trade lanes and is now spreading to the intra-Asia market, the ship operator said. IntraAsia freight rates have risen as lines have tried to reduce a backlog of containers left over from blank sailings and vessel delays since China’s Golden Week holidays in October."
A surge in imports ahead of the festive season and front-loading before the end of the Brexit transition period has pushed freight rates into Europe and the UK’s congested ports to record highs. Rates from Asia to northern Europe put on a further 9% this week, rising $136 to $1,644 per teu, a level not seen in nearly a decade, according to the Shanghai Containerised Freight Index. Asia–Mediterranean rates hit $1,797, up $123, or 7.3%, taking them to levels not seen since 2014.
