Peak season brings some welcome shipping rate respite to beleaguered carriers

After three consecutive weeks of decline, Asia-Europe container spot freight rates this week bounced back, ahead of Monday’s GRIs and FAK increases.
The boost comes not a moment too soon for ocean carriers posting some of the worst quarterly results in the history of liner shipping.
As the peak season began in earnest and shippers scrambled to secure space, the Asia-Europe components of the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index (SCFI) leapt 57.8% to North Europe and ...

Analysis: do shareholders play second fiddle to customers for CH Robinson?

CH Robinson released its second-quarter results this week, with reported $3.3bn gross revenues missing estimates by about $130m. Is that just a tiny little detail?
