Market Pulse – 2022 Week47

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202247] Freight rates continue to spiral downwards with FE-Europe, FE-Middle East and FE-Australia rates suffering the sharpest falls last week, amidst volume weakness across all tradelanes. Carriers are pushing for a new round of General Rate Increases (GRI) in December but they are unlikely to succeed if surplus capacity are not removed. Contract rates for the new 2023 season appear certain to fall by as much as 80% as the

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202246] Freight rates slipped further last week with weakening demand continuing to pull down capacity utilisation on the Transpacific and Asia-North Europe routes. Rate pressure has shifted to the Asia-Europe trades with carriers still unwilling to remove any capacity on the route as the the temporary blank sailings in October have mostly resumed their regular sailings. The FE-USEC routes are also under pressure, forcing Zi

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202245] Freight rates slumped further with the SCFI falling by 8.6% last week as pressure mounts on the Asia-Europe and US East Coast routes where rates are still above pre-COVID levels. On the FE-US West Coast, rates have already dropped below their pre-pandemic levels with current spot rates reminiscent of the period leading to the bankruptcy of Hanjin Shipping in August 2016.

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202244] Freight rates continued to fall sharply, with the SCFI slipping by a further 7% last week. Capacity utilisation has weakened across all key routes out of China, with the Middle East trade remaining the only exception. The West Coast North America have been particularly weak, with the blanked sailings in October and the withdrawal of 10 services since September still insufficient to match the sharp fall in demand as u

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202243] Freight rates will continue to soften into November with carriers unable to push through any material rate increases planned in the coming month. The SCFI index slipped 4.6% last week, with more weakness expected especially on the Asia-Europe and Asia-US East Coast routes as capacity utilisation remains under pressure. The Middle East Gulf is the only tradelane where rates are enjoying a boost with capacity utilisati

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202242] The container market has continued to weaken with demand softening at a faster pace than carriers are able to adjust capacity to match. Port congestion is easing across all main regions, with the recent build up of ships at Chinese ports already starting to clear, partly from reduced congestion but also due to ships returning to service after anchoring temporarily for blanked sailings during the Golden Week holidays.

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202241] The pace of SCFI price drops have slowed after the Golden Week holidays, dropping by just 5.7% compared to the pre-holiday level, but the CCFI took a sharper 13.0% drop as carriers adjusted their contract rates downwards in response to the plunge in spot rates. Rates will continue to decline as current capacity cuts remain insufficient to support the weaker cargo volumes. Charter activity has picked up after the tur

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202240] The Golden Week holidays in China provided little respite for the sliding freight and charter rates, with the SCFI and CCFI will resume their weekly declines when publication resumes this week. Carriers are still unwilling to take out capacity in any serious way, while the easing port congestion has negated much of the initial capacity reductions. Global port congestion has dropped to 10.5% to reach the lowest level

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202239] Spot rates have continued to soften going into the Golden Week holidays in China, with further rate reductions expected in October as demand remains weak and ad-hoc blank sailings having no material impact. Capacity cuts announced so far are still not enough to stem the rate falls, with the planned withdrawals accounting for just 7% of USWC capacity and 1% of USEC capacity, and will be offset by the reduction in port

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202238] The liner market continues to weaken with the outlook remaining weak until the end of this year. The SCFI took another 10% beating last week but further rate drops are expected as market rates are dropping faster than the indices can track them, with a similar situation developing on the charter market as containership charter rates are also dropping rapidly as demand wanes ahead of the traditional slack season start
