United States Businesses Look For Domestic Shipping Solutions Due To Large Increase Of International Shipping Costs

In recent years, the cost of shipping has been on the rise; however, In the last year the cost of international shipping has gone up exponentially without a sign of slowing down. This leaves American businesses who rely on international shipping to manufacture goods unable to fulfill rendered services. Recent freight rates have surged up to 300%, according to Weizhen Tan's article written for CNBC: "Compared with last March’s low prices, freight rates from China to the U.S. and Europe have surged 300%, Mark Yeager, chief executive officer of Redwood Logistics, told CNBC. He said spot rates are up to about $6,000 per container compared with the usual price of $1,200.".

Many businesses are either crippled from production due the rising costs of importing many manufacturing parts from overseas, or the businesses are forced to greatly increase the price of goods to the consumer accounting for the vast increase in expenses due to shipping internationally. According to the FOMC minutes that was released on March 17, 2021, on the recovery of Manufacturing: "reports of shortages in materials and labor, as well as bottlenecks in transportation, signaled some potential restraints".

Many United States businesses plead for a domestic solution to manufacture their goods without having to pay extremely high premiums due to the pandemic impairing the World Economy. The rise in price has been caused by a variety of reasons, "The higher shipping costs have been sparked by a combination of factors, including soaring demand amid stimulus checks, saturated ports, and too few ships, dockworkers and truckers." according to Henry Ren of Bloomberg Press.
