A new index published for the first time this week, suggests that forwarders expect ocean and air cargo to increase in volumes over the net six months.The Stifel Nicolaus Logistics Confidence Index asked members of the ocean and air freight forwarding industry about current cargo volumes and expected volumes in six months’ time.

In ocean freight, the Asia-Europe trade lane generated most confidence both in March and in September .

On the air freight side, forwarders are currently most optimistic (or least pessimistic) about the Europe-US route, but by September expect Europe-Asia to be the top performing trade.
