In order to improve the trading efficiency in the shipping market of Ningbo, reduce the investment risk and promote the transformation and upgrade of Ningbo port, the container freight index scheme of Ningbo (which is comprised of basic data collection methods, a freight index system and freight index calculation methods) is designed by analyzing the main overseas shipping indices and typical domestic shipping indices. The test results of the actual data indicate that the design scheme not only embodies the price fluctuation for special routes in the container shipping market of Ningbo, but also provides effective information for participants and decision-makers in the shipping market.
