North Europe LCL seafreight rate reduction
From 1st July you will notice a reduction in your seafreight rates from load ports in North Europe - Antwerp, Bremerhaven, Hamburg, Le Havre and Rotterdam. This is the result of slightly lower container buy rates.
Unfortunately this has not transferred to lower rates from "out-ports" where cargo is transhipped through the above mentioned sea ports. Considerably higher inland transport costs due mainly to higher Fuel costs over the best part of 12 months have meant rates from these origin points have increased slightly.
