The SCFI is the most widely used index for sea freight rates for import Asia worldwide
The Shanghai Containerized Freight Index is the most widely used index for sea freight rates for import Asia worldwide. This index has been calculated weekly since 2009 and shows the most current freight prices for container transport from the Asian main ports, including Shanghai. The index is therefore named after the largest container port in the world. Subscribe yourself to our newsletter for the latest updates.
The SCFI is based on the most used trade routes from Shanghai: Europe, Mediterranean, United States, Persian Gulf, New Zealand, West and South Africa, Japan, Southeast Asia and South-Korea. For Europe the SCFI is based on the port of discharge of Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp, Felixstowe and Le Havre. Please notice: rates in the SCFI are based on 20FT containers.
