Xeneta aggregates freight rates for both short-term and long-term contracts. The two categories are defined as:
- Short-term contract — any contract that is valid for less than 32 days
- Long-term contract — any contract that is valid for longer than 88 days
To keep rates as comparable as possible, short-term and long-term rates are never aggregated together.
For additional information about contracted rates, see the Contracted Within article.
