Noting that while rates cooled last month, they remain “well above historical peaks”, and there is evidence rates are “ticking back up again on certain core lanes”. Availability is likely to be constrained “for some time” – in fact, until 2023. And charters are becoming more popular – but that will have implications for shippers and the market in general, he notes. It’s a good read, and you can see other analysis on air freight from the Baltic Airfreight Index partners TAC Index, here, and Freight investor Services, here.
