The big story in Asia and in India is the shortage of containers as it hampers export trade. In response, the Indian Railways is moving empty boxes to inland depots like Delhi from seaports free of cost. Other Asian economies are adopting similar strategies to ensure that container movement does not add to the cost of exporters, already hit by higher freight rates.

Asian economies are heavily dependent on exports to Europe and North America to export their way out of trouble. This is largely due to longer turnaround times at US ports.
