Average revenue per FEU has fallen 7 percent for the year to $2,567.
“The increase in volume was mainly due to higher volumes carried on the intra-Asia and Asia/Europe trade lanes,” the line said. “The decline in average revenue per FEU was mainly due to lower rates in the major trade lanes, particularly the Asia/Europe and intra-Asia trade lanes.”
