Changes to the composition of the New ConTex Index have now taken effect

(21.02.2020) The previously announced changes to the composition of the New ConTex Index have now taken effect.

Due to the fact that most of the fixtures are concluded shorter than 12 months, the index shall include short periods only.

Therefore the New ConTex will be based in the future on assessments of charter rates of six selected container ship types: 1,100 teu and 1,700 teu (with a charter period of 6 months) and 2,500, 2700, 3,500 and 4,250 TEU (all with a charter period of 12 months).

Apart from this, the panel brokers of the New ConTex decided to expand the Index environment by adding two further types: 5,700 and 6,500 teu.
