Drewry East-West airfreight rates rose in October
29 / 11 / 2019
Drewry’s East-West Airfreight Price Index nudged up by 3% to a reading of 93.0 in October, up from 90.8 in September.
As the research and consultancy company predicted last month, all-in airfreight rates rose in October – to $2.74 from $2.67 per kg. However, this is 9% below the level of $3.02 per kg a year ago.
As the ‘peak’ season began to gear up for its November rush, Drewry expects that demand increase will drive up the rates in November.
