Container Ship Lane Capacity

Container Atlas measures container ship capacity at a lane level in two ways: by the percentage of container bookings that are being rejected at the port of origin; and by the total capacity of the vessels allocated to services on a given lane. See how capacity changes over time and how carriers respond to volume pressures.

Lane-Level Intelligence

Gain the clearest image of current carrier capacity by selecting the origin and destination ports. See ocean container volumes as well as the percentage of rejected bookings, transit times and booking lead times, giving a holistic view of market conditions. Price individual lanes with Freightos spot market pricing.

Best West Coast Port of Entry

Check container dwell times at ports of discharge and understand delays. Take into account transit times and congestion to make better decisions. Utilize FreightWaves SONAR’s surface-level transportation data to determine cost-effective deviations to the port of entry, such as dry van transport post-berth.
