Weekly Market Report 24/11/17 – 1/12/17


It has been a busy week for the coasters in North West Europe this week as well, and shipping is continuing tightening up. Time being there are no prompt open coasters however, we will see more vessel availability as from early/middle of next week. We have experience bad weather delaying ships in several ports which have led to uncertainties towards ongoing planning, for both Charterers and Owners. Rates are under upwards pressure and benchmark Tees/ARA basis 1800mts is now around USD 48-49 pmt. It has been less activity for the larger coasters and there are still a couple of prompt vessels around GIB area as we head into weekend.


Pressurized market in the east has been quiet this week as tight shipping market continued to restrict fixing activities. Freight perceptions remain tight in the near term in view of short supply of feasible modern tonnages at major loading ports. Freight was indicated above $100/mt for an ex S.China lifting towards SE Asia, however, no new fixtures were reported at the time of writing
