Dry Bulk Shipping - All eyes on Brazilian iron ore exports, as we await the long-anticipated lift in freight rates

15 August 2014

The freight market, which performed so well in Q1, has certainly not delivered in the past 4 months. BDI has dropped from 1,621 on 20 March to hit 747 on 29 July. Panamax ships have not been above USD 10,000 per day since 20 February, and below USD 5,000 per day for most of June and July. BIMCO expected challenging market conditions, also for Panamaxes, but rates below USD 5,000 per day were an unpleasant and unexpectedly low level.
