Why Does Shipping Seem So High?
International shipping rates are at all-time highs. Along the China-EU shipping lane, TIME reports: “Transporting a 40-foot steel container of cargo by sea from Shanghai to Rotterdam now costs a record $10,522, a whopping 547% higher than the seasonal average over the last five years.” Between Asia and North America, Bloomberg reports that “contract rates…are coming in around $2,500 to $3,000 for a 40-foot container—25% to 50% higher than a year ago…” And between China and the UK, the cost of shipping has gone up by over 350% in the past year.
The question remains: why is shipping so expensive in 2021? The primary reason for the sudden spike in the price of shipping is the world’s ongoing nemesis: COVID-19. The pandemic affected global supply chains in 2020, and shipping prices reflect that, and prices are estimated to remain at these levels until 2023
More consumers than ever have chosen the eCommerce marketplace to purchase stuff since the pandemic. From bookshelves to clothing to groceries and hygiene products, there are dozens of products customers buy online.
These high-demand products have to be shipped in large quantities. The more shipped products, the more costs are associated with their shipment. If the demand shoots up and supply remains the same, prices are bound to go up. These disruptions in the supply chain force businesses to charge more for a product to offset their shipping costs.
