(13.01.2023) Happy New Year, the ConTex is back. #keepshippingweird

(22.12.2022) The party seems to be over......

(28.10.2022) New ConTex at 974 points. The general feeling is that the market for the bigger segments above 2000 TEU is finally bottoming out......

(16.09.2022)  Have a wonderful weekend. And: Remember, remember the 4th of November 2022 – the date of the next EISBEINDINNER.

Remember, remember the 4th of November 2022!!!

See you at the EISBEIN.... Spread the news!


(8.9.2022) Unfortunately, there was an error in the data collection for the class "5.700 TEU" on August 30, which we need to correct. The correct figure is: 116.601 USD, not 124.490 USD as published in the report.

We apologize for any inconvenience. The index itself is not affected by this.

(01.07.2022) New ConTex 3.327 points...... #keepshippingweird

(17.06.2022) New ConTex 3.275 points!!! "......It is therefore expected that activity and rates will pick up further within the next couple of weeks as many expect the peak season will kick in earlier this year as retailers trying to avoid potential empty storages ...."


(29.04.2022) Reasons for the continued downward trend are still all the uncertainties in the market, mainly caused by the lockdowns in China as well as the war in Eastern Europe. Furthermore the congestion in major ports is getting worse and with lockdown measures not yet lifted, charterers are hesitating to make decisions for long term commitments.

(18.3.2022) 3.577 points....... Overall charter rates have reached a plateau again.......
