Land and maritime transportation price fluctuates
(Briefing message) From Nov 15 to Mar 15, most areas in China are in heat-supply duration, consuming more coals or LNG brought a little pressure on the air quality, so all old model trunks were contingently banned by administrative order. It leads to a price rise by the rate of 10-20% for land transportation. For maritime transportation, many international ports in east Asia introduced more strict regulations on the emission of sulfur oxide, it as well leads to price rise in freight. My estimate rate is about 40-60% depending on carriers if a low-sulfur ship is a must. However, even with the steep rise, the freight is still relatively low.
