The current dilemmas faced by foreign trade companies:
The freight is priced at one price per day, frantically rising;
If you are willing to pay this money, you may not be able to get the cabinet;
The cabinet is guaranteed, and the boat may not be able to open on time;
Finally arrived at the destination port, but the port congestion can only continue to queue up on the sea;
Shipments that were not originally a problem have become a major problem since the third quarter of last year.
According to statistics from shipping consulting agency Drewry, the global container freight volume in the first quarter of 2021 increased by nearly 9% year-on-year, and the average China Export Container Freight Index (CCFI) was 1960.99 points, an increase of 113.33% compared to the same period last year. Compared with the fourth quarter of the previous year, an increase of 56.8%!
Not to mention that at the end of March, Evergreen’s container ships also blocked the Suez Canal, the throat of Asia-Europe transportation. The Danish freighter company Vespucci Maritime pointed out that after Evergreen’s stranding accident, shipping around the world must return to normal, let alone four to six months.
Therefore, many foreign traders said with emotion that this year they are not working for the boss, but for the shipping company.
