The Freightos Baltic Global Container Index (FBX) is now available to all members and subscribers. Published weekly on Sundays, FBX represents ocean freight prices, including all ocean surcharges (BAF, CAF, SCS, PCS, PSS, WRS).
Prices used in the index are rolling short term Freight All Kind (FAK) spot tariffs between carriers, freight forwarders and high-volume shippers.
Index values are calculated by taking the median price for all prices on active lanes with weighting by carrier. 50 to 70 million price points are collected every month.
FBX is based on aggregated and anonymised real-time data from global carriers, forwarders and shippers that offer services on Freightos.com or use the Freightos AcceleRate freight rate management platform and have consented to this usage.
