How is FBX02 calculated?

Prices used in the index are rolling short term Freight All Kind (FAK) spot tariffs and related surcharges between carriers, freight forwarders and high-volume shippers. Index values are calculated by taking the median price for all prices (to ignore the influence of outliers on active lanes) with weighting by carrier. 50 to 70 million price points are collected every month. The daily freight rate index is published in a “sliding window” containing the relevant data that are effective and not expired from 00:00 UTC on the day before publication to 24:00 UTC on the day of publication, meaning 48 hours in total starting from 00:00 yesterday. Only rates created or modified within the last 3 months and valid during those 48 hours will be included (in practice on most trade lanes rates are volatile and almost all rates are much newer than 3 months). Rates are calculated at 06:00 UTC and published at 14:00 UTC. The weekly freight index is calculated as an average of the five business days from the same week and published each Friday.
