Weekly Dry Time Charter Estimates, May 26 2021
Capesize period rates ticked up slightly this week with some period activity reported around the one-year mark. The average rate for one-year is currently estimated as $28,000/pdpr.
Panamax/kamsarmax timecharter rates softened slightly this week due to limited activity in the Atlantic and a flat market in the pacific with impending national holidays, however there is optimism looking forward towards mid-June.
Plenty of period interest for the smaller sizes thanks to continued strong commodity demand, particularly for coal and grain cargoes.
