Looking at the present market situation on the Transatlantic wb trade, it comes as a certain surprise to see a GRI notice of Hapag for October 1st. It could be that this is meant to be the brake shoe for the present downward tendency or it is a good optimism that a GRI will be possible.

Let us wait and watch the development of the market….
