Shanghai Containerised Freight Index (SCFI)

SCFI is the most commonly used freight index for sea freight on a global scale. SCFI offers an overview of freight rates on containers from China on a weekly basis.

The name of the index originates from the world's largest container port located in Shanghai, China. SCFI has served as official price index on the global freight market since 2009.

The freight information is reported by major Sea Carriers, Freight Forwarders and Shippers and based on 20’ ft rates. SCFI is updated each Friday and valid for the next week (Monday to Sunday).

It covers 13 individual shipping routes and below you will find information of the China to Europe (Hamburg, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Felixstowe, Le Havre) route.
