Trans-Pacific Inbound Market Update September 26, 2018
Trading conditions in the Trans-Pacific continue to remain volatile.
USPTI anticipates a strong market in late October, November and early December as
clients push to have goods received and entered into US commerce prior to the proposed
additional increases in tariffs (import duty) to 25%. The anticipated increase will impact the vast
majority of import items and potentially create strong volume demand for receipt in the USA prior to December 31,2018.
USPTI will continue to monitor trading conditions, as well as. maintain a vigilant watch on the ongoing trade negotiations between the United
States and China on the increased tariff levels.
Peak season pricing will most like continue for the time frames noted above. We anticipate rate for the peak season to remain
consistent with pricing in mid-September. Please contact your USPTI representative for a complete cost/rate analysis and market update.
