Sea freight rates in Turkey and Albania have increased, and the purchase costs of high-grade chromium concentrate traders have increased. As a result, the prices of Turkish concentrate and Albanian chromium lump ore have continued to rise.
Since the outbreak of the Red Sea conflict, global shipping costs, especially the cost of containers transported from Europe to Asian ports, have increased significantly. It is understood that the freight from Turkey to domestic main ports has increased by 10 US dollars/ton, and that from Albania has increased by 5 yuan/ton.

It will also increase the sales pressure on exporters and add to market tensions. Under the fermentation, shippers all expressed difficulties in ordering ships.
