As the leader in this exciting and fast-growing space, FIS traded the first of a new round of container freight forward agreement (CFFA) contracts in 2021, settled against independent container benchmarks produced by leading price benchmark providers. Trading along the major Asia-US/Europe and trans-Atlantic front and backhaul routes, container freight derivatives provide a means for the wider market to fix and manage pricing using a tradable cash-settled contract – providing security and flexibility not necessarily available in the physical market. 

FIS has led the drive for CME-cleared contracts on the container freight market, with comprehensive access to virtually all players globally.  

air freight

Since 2018, FIS has been working with leading air freight industry players, to help develop the next generation of price risk management tools for the air freight market. 

FIS traded the first AFFA contracts in August 2019, settled against transaction-based and representative pricing data provided by independent airfreight indices. Using geographically focused index routes, these risk management tools can be used to hedge against risk in the Global market and help the air cargo industry.
