Seaborne shipping liners Star Bulk Carriers ( SBLK ) and ZIM Integrated Shipping ( ZIM ) report quarterly earnings on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, as high shipping costs from an ongoing supply chain crunch lift shipping stocks to record profits.

Shipping Costs Elevated Shipping costs have skyrocketed over the past year, after a wave of online buying crashed into Covid restrictions at factories and ports.Businesses, preparing for an economic downturn, had to pivot to meet demand.
Amid the scramble to meet demand for imports in the U.S., shipping containers and other equipment haven’t always been where they needed to be.Nonetheless, holiday-season demand is expected to be strong.
“We expect retailers to target the sales inventory to sales ratio they had prior to the pandemic, which will continue to support the restocking trend especially as we enter into the traditional peak season for Christmas,” ZIM CFO Xavier Destriau said on ZIM’s earnings call in August.
“This in turn is expected to sustain strong demand for container shipping for the remainder of the year through the Chinese New Year,” he continued.
