Research and Analysis of International Shipping Market Freight Index

This paper analyzes the political and economic factors that affect the baltic dry index (BDI) and China containerized freight index (CCFI) based on the fluctuation of these two indexes. By analyzing the volatile trends of BDI and CCFI, and comparing with the recent fluctuations of the Shanghai containerized freight index (SCFI) and China import container freight index (CICFI), this paper summarizes the fluctuation regularity and relationship of CCFI and BDI. During the long-term process of development, the ratio of rise and fall of BDI and CCFI is the same, and the rise and fall of CCFI and BDI are synchronized in about two-thirds of the cases. The purpose of this paper is to provide a basis for shipping enterprises to effectively predict the trend of container freight price and manage freight risks.
