Suffern, NY, November 4, 2021 — The relief received by some shippers due to the decline in the container spot rate markets in China and the United States during the first week of October 2021 appears to continue until November 2021.

According to Shabsie Levy, CEO and founder of a digital freight company Shifl, “”Spot market fares will fall until November 2021 as holiday shopping appears to be flooded and already ordered items are placed in thousands of containers on many ships across the United States. it continues.
