The Container Throughput Index of the RWI – Leibniz Institute for Economic Research and the ISL - Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics once more rose – albeit lightly – from 126.5 (revised figure) to 126.6 points during June 2017. Despite the downwards revisions by 0.7 points for May, there is still strong indication for a robust expansion of world trade.

The flash estimate for June is based on data from 38 ports that account for about 70 percent of the total RWI/ISL Index.

The RWI/ISL-Container Throughput Index for July 2017 will be released on August 22nd.
