The buyers, who could not provide the necessary supply for Christmas last year due to the pandemic, started to order early to avoid the same problem this year. Freights, which are currently high, are on the verge of gaining an upward momentum once again with these orders.
The preparations for Christmas in global trade started early this year. The global buyers who were unable to fill their shelves before Christmas due to supply disruptions after the pandemic got into a hurry this year to keep their stock by pulling their orders forward.
Experts state that the acceleration of trade may cause a new crisis in the container market, and they warn that; in addition to the shortage of equipment; the freight prices, which have risen by 300 percent in the last year and a half, will also enter a new upward trend.
