We have been advised that freight volumes from Frankfurt are exceeding pre-crisis levels and are up to 20% above the same period in 2009. These volume increases, coupled with a lack of additional capacity and the Q4 (4th quarter) peak season almost upon us, all major Carriers ex Germany have announced increases to their air freight rates.
Recent announcements by Carriers servicing the Australian markets will have an impact with an increase in airfreight rates into Australia shortly. We will monitor the changes and advise when possible.
