The drums are beating.
Most shipping-Lines have signalled an increase to FCL Rates Asia-NZ.
That’s most as opposed to all.
It’s fair to say the same shipping lines pushing for an increase on August 01st did so last year as well.
But because other lines said “No” this didn’t go ahead.
We can only hold ‘market forces’ equally applies this time as well.
Up-Date 05th August: The only shipping-line to go ahead with this proposed increase were Maersk. This adversely affects Timaru importers, where Maersk are 'the only taxi on the rank'.
For more info have a chat to Darron or Paul.
