Maersk Line may profit much from reefer increase

The Maersk Line 30 percent reefer rate increase which has kicked in at the beginning of the year, may result in an additional income of USD 1 billion, Nordea tells the Danish business newspaper Børsen.

In the Danish business newspaper Børsen, Nordea states that the 30 percent reefer rate increase introduced by Maersk Line may result in an additional income of USD 1 billion in 2013.

It may well prove to be a good piece of business for Maersk Line that the company increased reefer rates from 1 January. A price increase which has been copied by the world’s second and third largest shipping companies, MSC and CMA CGM, and a number of other carriers, and which has been heavily criticised by numerous shippers. The price increase may result in an additional income level of USD 1 billion this year, Børsen reports.
