NINGBO, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- The sub-indices of the China Ningbo Containerized Freight Index (NCFI) for European and Mediterranean routes reported drops.

The NCFI, reflecting freight rate changes of 21 routes departing from the Ningbo-Zhoushan port, stood at 964 points Friday, down 3.7 percent compared with the previous week.

The sub-reading for the Europe route dropped 7.8 percent week on week to 841.6 points, while sub-indices for east and west Mediterranean routes dropped 4.2 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively.
