Maersk predicts that supply chain bottlenecks and shortage of containers due to surging demand will continue until the fourth quarter of 2021, and then return to normal; EVA shipping general manager Huiquan Xie also said previously that congestion is expected to be delayed to the third quarter.
But easing congestion doesn't mean that freight rates will fall.
According to the analysis of Drewry, a well-known British Maritime consultancy, the industry is at the peak of an unprecedented business cycle. Drewry expects freight rates to decline by 2022, but shipping companies will try to maintain high profits due to "favorable supply and demand growth trends and skilled capacity management.".

Since last year, seaspan has madly ordered 37 ships, and these new ships are expected to be delivered between the second half of 2023 and the middle of 2024.
The major shipping companies have recently issued a new round of price increase notice.
