Bursting, lack of containers, and price increases are like three-piece suits on the bed. Due to these special circumstances, many shipping companies charge empty cabin charges for refunds caused by non-shipping reasons, such as TSL, SITC, HPL For many shipowners, including Jinjiang and Jinjiang, the specific amount ranges from USD50/100 to USD300 according to the time of customs clearance. On the one hand, China’s export volume is growing strongly, and on the other hand, major US ports are nearly paralyzed. The current trade imbalance in trans-Pacific routes is extremely prominent, and the lack of containers in the market is becoming increasingly severe.
The continued shortage of containers has further exacerbated the lack of capacity in the market, and the freight rates of most routes have increased, which has pushed up the comprehensive index.
