For many who are seeking contract manufacturing overseas, the idea of shipping products across the ocean oftentimes seems intimidating. The good news is, we handle that for you. The even better news is, the price is falling. The cost for taking a 40-foot container to the U.S. West Coast from Shanghai fell 24% last week from the end of 2010, according to data from Clarkson Plc, the world’s biggest ship broker. Freight rates are falling because the container shipping industry has added a large number of ships in anticipation of an economic recovery. Maersk Line, which transports about 16 percent of the world’s manufactured goods by sea and has invested heavily in ever larger vessels, said on November 9, 2011 that higher global container demand has not been able to offset oversupply.
US rail borne container traffic for the third quarter has however risen over 6% against last year with the Intermodal Association of North America claiming almost 2 million ocean boxes were moved this term. In the postal sector Deutsche Post AG, Europe’s largest postal service, gained the most in 18 months in Frankfurt trading as growth in Asian express shipments.
