However, the marginal 0.8% rise last week masked weakening market sentiment where both Asia-Europe and Transpacific rates are still under pressure, with some carriers planning another series of FAK rate hikes mid-April to stem the decline. Charter rates remain buoyant with s

The brief spike in both import and export spot rates from the US East Coast were quickly reversed as the Transpacific rate weakness pulled down the SCFI last week despite encouraging hikes on the Asia-Europe, Middle East and Latin America rates.

Despite the rapid fleet growth, charter rates have continued to rise with carriers undeterred by the recent freight rate correction with several of them still eyeing market share growth.

Carriers failed to push through a mid-March rate increase, with hopes for an April rate hike also fading quickly. Intra-Alliance rivalry remains in play, with THE Alliance to re-introduce 2 transpacific strings to the PNW and USEC in April, while ONE and Wan Hai forge a new partnership on the

However, charter rates continue to firm while second hand vessel prices are still rising as demand for tonnage remains high.

Register Free Trial [https://www.linerlytica.com/register/?utm_source=W202410] The freight rate correction gathered pace after carriers failed to defend their pre-Chinese New Year gains with the SCFI shedding 6.2% last week. Although the Red Sea dividend remain in play with spot rates still 96% higher compared to December last year, cargo demand has not rebounded sufficiently after the Chinese New Year holidays to provide rate support with carriers unable to mount a serious 1 March GRI attempt

This will continue to create a capacity shortage across all routes, with the Cape diversions and incremental capacity needed to connect to Red Sea and Med ports already soaking up more than 7% of the global containership fleet. Freight rates retained most of the Janua

Capacity is expected to remain tight in March due to the extended Red Sea diversions, with charter rates continuing to firm due to limited vessel availability.

The SCFI and CCFI indices are 117% and 28% higher compared to the same period last year, which will help to reverse the carriers’ massive 4Q losses.

The Red Sea diversions have absorbed all of the excess capacity in the market, with the supply of vessel space and box equipment expected to remain tight in the next 2 months. Although the marke
