Current Situation in the Red Sea
The situation in the Red Sea has worsened drastically over the last weekend due to attacks on several merchant ships.
Due to the above-mentioned events in the Red Sea, the already tense situation will deteriorate again. Further increases in freight rates and the introduction of a peak season surcharge are to be expected. In addition, delays due to rerouting cannot be ruled out.
We are currently unable to provide any detailed information on the level of freight rates in January - however, it is already clear that rates will rise sharply in January and that the space situation will continue to worsen. Particularly in view of Lunar New Year, it is advisable to plan ahead and book early.
