SeaIntel: The 10 worst container trades in 2014

2014 brought significantly lower rates on trades between most continents, but some were worse than others. SeaIntel points to the ten trades that saw the biggest decline this year as cascading hit several trades hard.

Only two main trades in the global container traffic can present positive developments in the general contract rate levels for 2014 compared to the year before - the trades between Asia/India-Middle East and on Asia-Europe. The so-called niche trades and routes to and from new emerging markets are strongly and negatively affected by the cascading of bigger ships being deployed on the routes from other, bigger trades, says SeaIntel in an analysis that points to similar developments in 2015.
