The export service offered by RW Freight services is top class. It was the
first time that we used RW Freight and now we do not want to use any other
carrier due to them being so good. The whole process was simple and there
were no issues though out the whole export which was a first for us. We are
currently in the process of transferring all our freight forwarding needs
over to RW Freight.

Increased shipping costs affect consumer prices

Tags: , ,


The increasing price of shipping goods across the world may affect your household expenses from a cup of coffee each morning to children’s toys.

Shipping a 12m steel container of cargo by sea from Shanghai to Rotterdam now costs a record of US$10,522 which is 547 per cent higher than the seasonal average over the last five years, according to a Shipping consultancy.

Over 80 per cent of all goods trade is transported by sea, so freight cost inscreases are threatening to boost the price of everything from toys, furniture and car parts to coffee, sugar and anchovies, compounding concerns in global markets already bracing themselves for increasing inflation.
