       德鲁里(Drewry)发布的世界集装箱指数(World Container Index,以下简称WCI指数)统计了来往于美国、欧洲和亚洲八条主要航线的集装箱现货费率。目前的WCI指数为每40英尺标准箱(FEU)1759.86美元,较上周上涨了4%,较去年同期上涨了12.6%。这家位于伦敦的海运咨询公司周三做出预测,认为下周费率将保持稳定。



       一些著名远洋运输公司近期都已公布了2018年第二季度的财政损失情况,包括阳明海运(Yang Ming)、长荣海运(Evergreen Line)、现代商船(Hyundai Merchant Marine)以及赫伯罗特(Hapag-Lloyd)。法国达飞(CMA CGM)尚未公布该季度财政结果,而于本月早些时候下调 2018年全年盈利预测的马士基(A.P. Møller – Maersk)将于明天(8月17日)公布第二季度财政结果。
Spot container rates float back up
Drewry’s World Container Index (WCI) — a composite of container spot rates on eight major routes to and from the United States, Europe and Asia — currently stands at $1,759.86 per FEU, up 4 percent from last week and up 12.6 percent year-over-year. The London-based shipping research and consulting firm said Thursday it expects rates to remain stable for next week.
This news comes at a great time for carriers, considering second-quarter 2018 financial results are starting to surface, with many prominent carriers posting weaker financial results compared to a year prior, as lower spot rates and higher bunker costs have been top reasons given by the carriers.
Drewry said Thursday that year-to-date the average composite index of the WCI was $1,415 per FEU, down 7 percent from the corresponding 2017 period.
Several prominent ocean carriers, including Yang Ming, Evergreen Line, Hyundai Merchant Marine, and Hapag-Lloyd, all recently posted losses for the second quarter of 2018. CMA CGM has yet to release its financial results for the quarter, while A.P. Møller – Maersk, which slashed its full-year 2018 earnings forecast earlier this month, is slated to release its second quarter results tomorrow.
