Freight Rate Trends

At USSA we keep up to date with latest freight rate trends

Current freight rate trends which are determined by the economy, will directly affect how much you pay to get your consignment from the origin port to its destination. In fact, earlier in 2016, the world saw ocean freight rate indexes reach exceptional lows. When it comes to ocean freight rates, the carrier you use and the volume that you are shipping will come into play. At USSA we provide our members with access to the best industry rates and this is made possible by the combining of our member’s shipping volumes. Our shipping association is dedicated to keeping up to date with the latest freight rate trends by paying close attention to world-wide economics and how the fluctuations over the weeks and months can impact on the type of shipping service that you receive and how much it affects your bottom line.

 At USSA we focus on providing our shipping association members with the type of ocean freight management service that’s all encompassing. That means that you will find everything under one roof and we will do everything we can to get you the best rates and minimal risk! We have great faith in our product and this is evident in our 25 years of success in the industry.
