Market Report

Container update 12th June, 2007


The rally for tonnage experienced in the first months of 2007 continued through-out the last weeks. In the segment above 2000 teu some serious forward fixing has been concluded and the vast majority of liner operators appear still in the race for additional ships, especially one´s equipped with gear are being soaked up well ahead of their open positions. CSAV has led the race in the past weeks with numerous fixtures around the 2500teu segment with periods of up to 30mos in order to secure a slight rebate on the rate in return. Also CMA CGM has been active securing even older tonnage for 2 years at a healthy 18000usd considering the vessel´s consumption.

Around the 1700 teu segment we have seen another benchmark being crossed with latest fixtures topping the 15000usd per day mark for periods of up to 24mos. Worth mentioning appear a number of Hamburg Sued extensions in this segment along with the activity of some Far East based operators like TS Lines securing nice ships like the 1600teu "Elbe Trader" for 12mos at 15450usd.

Another nice jump has been reported in the CV 1100teu size where rates appear to be slowly approaching the 13000usd per day mark for a year. Mentionable is the latest fixture of the Hartmann newbuilding "Frisia Alster" securing 12750usd with New Pacific Lines although a slight premium has been charged for Australia trade in this case.

Recapitulating the above, most operators appetite for tonnage has not been satisfied yet. The pace of the forward fixing activity might slow down a little but the general market opinion is still very optimistic.
