A Tidal Wave of China-US Freight

In an unexpected turn, container freight volumes from China to the U.S. are soaring, despite China’s economic woes. This surge, reaching its highest point since May 2022, is driven by the traditional pre-Chinese New Year shipping peak and a significant increase in demand from U.S. importers. With lower inventory levels in the U.S. and a strong retail sales forecast, transportation providers are poised for a favorable business climate. However, global disruptions such as the Red Sea crisis and Panama Canal’s low water levels are extending transit times and constraining capacity, pushing trans-Pacific spot rates to unprecedented highs.
