Surge in air freight demand may trigger high freight rate in 2018


Thanks giving day and Christmas holiday season brings a perfect storm of eCommerce deliveries. Lack of freighter capacity and re-stocking of inventory, a congestion hit the market. Plus, a handler strike at Frankfurt added to severe congestion.

It has been a tough fourth quarter for shippers, both in terms of rates, and delays. A forwarder said that cargo was being turned away at the end of November, and had been forced to book sea freight for one customer – as it was quicker. The outcome for next year, say forwarders, is that freight rates are expected to rise between 15 and 20 per cent.
