Boxlines continue to rush idled tonnage back into action

Boxlines continue to rush idled tonnage back into action

Paris: According to AXS-Alphaliner, the idle fleet has been further reduced over the last two weeks, from 495 vessels of 1.24m teu to 474 vessels of 1.22m teu (9.3% of fleet capacity) currently. AXS-Alphaliner expects lower idle count going forward, as new services will be launched on the Asia - Europe trade (capacity on this route expected up 7%) and there is also a pickup in demand for smaller ships to service intra-regional trades.
