The price of a shipping container, a large container used to store a wide range of items, has increased significantly over the last decade.
According to a new report from the ContainerShipReport.com, the average cost of shipping containers has jumped from $3.9 billion in 2010 to $12.4 billion in 2019.
The report found that container shipments accounted for about 70 percent of the total U.S. shipping market, up from about 35 percent in 2010.
But as container sizes have grown, so have the cost of each container.
The cost of a 1,000-gallon container in the U.K. has risen from $4.95 to $8.05 in the past decade.
And the cost for a 1.5-liter container in Spain has jumped over 50 percent in the same period.
The price per container is up by about 50 percent, according to the Container Ship Report.
In 2019, the price of the largest container shipped from Europe to the U, where shipping costs are higher, was $5.65.
That’s a 1 percent increase over the same time period in 2010, according the report.
And that’s not even taking into account the cost to build the containers.
The ContainerShip report estimates that shipping costs to build containers from the U to Europe increased from $1.6 billion in 2011 to $6.6 million in 2019, an increase of over 100 percent.
The overall cost of building a container from the world’s shipping hubs to the ports and cities in the United States, the report said, has jumped by nearly 50 percent since 2010.
The increase in costs comes from many factors, including shipping container construction, container-management practices, container and container-carrying requirements, and increased international trade, among others.
While the cost per container in 2019 was up by more than 50 percent over 2010, it’s not clear how much of that increase has been driven by the increasing container sizes.
The average price per 1,500-gallons container shipped across Europe has increased by 40 percent, to $4,500, according a new study by Deloitte & CRS.
The same study found that the average price of containers shipped between the U and the U-K.
in 2019 is now about $7,000, up 15 percent from $5,000 in 2010 and up by 40% since 2009.
In 2018, the cost jumped from about $2,000 per 1.4-liter to about $4 per 1 liter.
But the report noted that the number of 1.8-liter containers per container had fallen over the past five years, from about 10 million in 2010 back to less than 1 million in 2021.
In addition, the amount of cargo per container has increased over the period.
According the Containership report, containers now carry more than 12 times as much cargo as they did in 2010 but only 1.1 times as many people as they once did.
