New ConTex: + 1,9%

(24.07.2020) The recovery of the New ConTex accelerated this week with a gain of 6 points, after improving 5, 4 and 3 points in the weeks before. The increase was mainly driven by the larger ships of 3500 TEU and larger which registered solid gains. Although all segments were positive the smallest vessels just barely registered any improvement. Activity in Asia, the Americas, and Northern Europe was good whereas in the Mediterranean the summer holiday season is starting to being felt. Southern Europe and Northern Africa though has generally been difficult this year, especially for ships between 1200 and 2000 TEU. As a consequence, for example 10 x 1700 TEU have so far positioned from Europe to the East of Suez in 2020 already.
