On November 27, the Shanghai motorcade suddenly pulled up the banners, stopped working and ushered in the strike. It is understood that the cause of the strike may be due to these reasons: oil prices are rising this year, in addition, the cost of transportation, such as tire repair and insurance, is also increasing. But the rise in freight rates is not obvious, resulting in the motorcade has already overwhelmed.
According to statistics, until now, China's domestic refined oil prices adjusted 10 times up, 6 times down and 6 stranded in 2017. Especially since July 2017, oil prices have only risen. This undoubtedly gave a blow to the drivers, truck fleet.
The impact of international oil producing countries continue to extend production reduction agreements and the traditional peak of domestic demand, U.S. crude oil stocks continue to decline, at the same time the dollar is weak, these all increased the driving force for the price of crude oil.
It is reported that major ports and motorcade are preparing to raise trailer freight at present. Part of the motorcade has issued a letter of price adjustment. And the occurrence of the strike may accelerate the rise of freight rates.
Here, freight owners and freight forwarders please pay close attention to the dynamic and price notice of the convoy.
