Since 2011, container ships rents are facing a downward trend of the fastest pace in four years, including super panamax container ship face rents fall speed is beyond the other form.
Due to demand lower, according to the trade winds, attains the rent at the end of ship lease re-enter the market, and more new ships are pouring into big, 5500 -
6500 teu container ship rate was only about $10000 / day, in the past month fell by a third.

Rents, lease, 180, 9250 dollars, has shown container ship chartering market trend is falling.
And such lease means the ship rents compared with the same period last year, the decline has reached to 40%.
Analysts warn that the sharp drop in the chartering market is due to the increasing in the first half of this year the price of the callback.
In the first half of the market is growing too fast, this situation cannot continue in the future time.

6500 teu ship returned lease expired, the ship back into the market is also one of the causes of falling rents.

However, analysts also pointed out that the back of the ship is predictable, but the owner's expected panamax container ship demand growth has not come.
Due to range trade demand in Asia, means that in the beginning of the year to rent the boat in the small vessels under 5500 teu also returned to the charter market, and the rents of super panamax container ship caused some impact.
One analyst pointed out that due to the economic slowdown in Asia, Asia interval volume decreases.
Medium-sized container ship had expected rise in demand, makes the owner choose to lease 5500 teu container ship this has not happened.
In addition, 8000 -
9000 teu after delivery into new shipbuilding market is also super panamax container ship rents fall of one of the three important factors.
Because of too much flood the market capacity, liner companies have to take to suspend or cancel flight service, which makes the idle power a substantial growth.
And in the future one year's time, will be quite a number of ships for the lease expires, back into the spot market.
