Global container freight index rose again in July
The Container Throughput Index of the Rheinisch-Westfälische Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung (RWI) and the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL) rose again in July 2017, from 127.4, to reach a new all-time high of 128.6.
According to the Institute these figures indicate a rather strong expansion of the world trade.
The flash-estimate for July is based on data reported by 41 ports, accounting for close to 73% of the total index volume.
