Clarksons: Container fleet up 6.2 pct this year

The influx to the global container fleet will be at somewhat the same level as growth in global trade this year. New mega-vessels will however contribute to putting continued pressure on rates, says Clarksons in its Container Intelligence Monthly.

The many new mega-vessels headed into the container market are an important factor in rates being under extreme pressure lately, according to the the most recent edition of Container Intelligence Monthly from Clarksons.

And this picture does not look like it will change significantly in coming months, considering that the British shipbroker expects an influx into the global container fleet of 6.2 percent in conjunction with an expectation of a growth in the global trade of 6.0 percent.
