Testimonials

It was the first time I used RW Freight Services when they carried out my freight export to Finland and I am very happy with the service. Their booking process was simple and stress free, I received a confirmation of the booking and the collection was made the next day. I am looking forward to working with RW Freight Services on a much more regular occurrence in 2012.

Tough times for shipping

Industry leaders are warning that 2012 will be a difficult year for freight and shipping.

The chairman of one of Hong Kong’s best-known logistics and transport service companies,said that decreasing rates for Asia to USA containers suggest tough times for shipping companies in particular.

The freight rate for shipping a 40-foot container from Hong Kong to Los Angeles in August, for instance, was down 30% from a year earlier, according to statistics in the latest issue of Shippers Today magazine, published by the Hong Kong Shipping Council.

Part of the reason is slow economic growth in the US, still a key Asian market.  Rates are also reducing because shipping lines are stuck with orders for vessels placed on expectations of better growth.
