NINGBO, July 25 (Xinhua) -- The China Ningbo Containerized Freight Index (NCFI) reported a soar in freight indices in the east South America routes.
The NCFI, reflecting freight rate changes of 21 routes departing from the Ningbo-Zhoushan port, stood at 779.2 points Friday, down 0.6 percent compared with last week.
The sub-reading for the east coast of South America quoted 527.4 points, up 88.7 percent from last week.
According to the Ningbo Shipping Exchange, as last week's freight rates hit a new low since 2019, liner companies plan to push up the freight rates in August, causing a significant rise this week.
Reported every Friday (except Chinese holidays), the NCFI was first published in September 2013. Enditem
