First 6 months of 2015, showing freight rates nearly half of that in January

It is hard to believe we are rolling into June! A time of year where we reflect if we have achieved what we set out to achieve this year, we start to gather figures and paperwork for the tax man and many people start to tell us how may weeks it is until Christmas!

With receiving our China contract rates for June yesterday, and seeing how incredibly low they were, it prompted me to analyse how the rates have moved in the first half of this year.

Mapping January to June this graph shows a solid start with no movement really between January and February, a drop in March which was due to container volumes being low after Chinese New Year with an increase come April. From April until now, the rates have decreased substantially.

I will continue to record and graph rates each month, if anyone would like to have insight into any specific port or country please contact me directly rebecca@my-pfs.com.
