The Asia to US market has become very volatile once more as rates have increased by upwards of 25% in the past week, dependent on origin and destination.

Further bad news for importers and exporters will be that rates are expected to rise steeply again in June, as demand currently outweighs capacity.

The current transpacific situation seems to be mirroring recent developments in the Asia/Europe market.

The westbound team continue to monitor the situation closely and will bring further news when we have it. If you have any concerns, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
