The SCFI is the most widely used index for sea freight rates for import China worldwide

The Shanghai Containerized Freight Index is the most widely used index for sea freight rates for import China worldwide. This index has been calculated weekly since 2009 and shows the most current freight prices for container transport from the Chinese 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.
