Currently, freight rates in September have been reduced on almost all routes. The routes with reduced freight rates are the European route, the Mediterranean route. west coast route and east coast Dubai route Australia route West and East Africa Routes south africa route including the South American route Western and Eastern Japan Routes and Southeast Asia Routes The routes that have increased freight charges include the Korean route.

However, Thai “exporters” still face challenges from high freight costs. because of the rising price of crude oil in the world market Although now the price of crude oil in the world market has declined. but still unable to reduce freight rates It also affects the shipping routes that the private sector has to plan and negotiate with importers in advance. If the freight cost problem has not been relieved, it may inevitably hinder the growth of Thai exports.
