By Heather Henderson on 8 January 2018
Capacity from Mexico to North Europe is climbing back up again after a small dip in 2016, according to BlueWater Reporting's Capacity Report.

   This chart uses BlueWater Reporting's Capacity Report to illustrate the changes in estimated weekly allocated capacity for the Mexico to North Europe trade route over the last five years.

Capacity on this route rose dramatically from 2,420 TEUs in December of 2013 up to 4,596 TEUs in December 2014, an 89.91 percent increase. The following year it rose again to 5,676 TEUs in December 2015.

   There was a slight drop by December 2016 down to 5,438 TEUs, but the most recent data from December 2017 shows the capacity back on the upswing again, with an estimated weekly allocated capacity of 5,635 TEUs. This is an increase of 3.62 percent over last year and 132.85 percent since 2013.
