Current reefer market assessment for Q2/2024:

  • The market is still volatile, and rates have increased for all reefer trades, especially Far East Westbound and Latin America Export.
  • Disruptions in the Red Sea and the low water situation in the Panama Canal are causing longer transit times, which has a major impact on reefer equipment availability. Forecasting is important as there is always the possibility of equipment shortages.
  • The fresh fruit season from February to July has an impact on reefer equipment demand in South America.
  • There are space constraints on several trade lanes, particularly Far East Westbound.
  • Direct end-to-end visibility of reefer ocean freight is becoming a standard for the world’s shipping containers. Currently, there are five critical characteristics that are expected to be monitored when shipping reefer cargo: temperature, ventilation, humidity, power and, ideally, position.
  • When it comes to sustainability, reefer ocean freight has a significantly lower carbon footprint than air freight.
