Sea transport and containers

How can it be justified that the fair of a 40-foot container went from four thousand to 14 thousand dollars in less than a year? We are being affected by rising shipping costs, travel times and a shortage of containers. How did we get to this situation, which seems contradictory, it’s a mystery. In a period of lesser transactions, the offer of transport should be greater and prices lower.
