Blank sailings plateauing, spot rates maintain strength: Sea-IntelligenceLogYcode
In its weekly issue, ea-Intelligence discussed the plateauing of new blank announcements for sailing, the slump in container volumes in North America East Coast ports in 2020-Q1, and the strength of freight rates.
While the total number of recorded blank sailings has now passed the 500-mark, in the past week there has only been a rise of 7. We have now entered a plateau where carriers retain their current blank sails, without the need for a large-scale rise in new blank sailing announcements.
