Market Report

Container update 15th February, 2008


The first fixing weeks of the year appear almost identical to the start of last year. while the far east has been getting ready for their new years celebration, the activity ceased significantly & some european operators used this usually rather slow time of the year to step up to the plate and conclude some forward extensions and fixtures.

Most market segments have done extremly well lately & partial improvements have been reported from every class except the baltic feeder market, which is suffering from the rather mild winter with hardly any ice that usually helps to sustain good rates. However, healthy rates are still reported on some newbuilding deals as for example the 15months fixture of the gearless 900 teu, 554 @14ts, 170 reefers "Elbcarrier" to Crowley Liner Services appears remarkable from our point of view.

The 1400teu sector was especially alive lately, highlighted by the APL en-bloc fixture of the Norderoog & Langenes for 12mos at a strong 17250usd, both 1368teu, 870 @ 14ts & 250 reefers and will be employed for a new service on the Continent.

The B-170`s easily crossed the 17000usd mark with various remarkable fixtures, most for longer period like 24 months and we continue to see a strong demand for the upcoming months. Worth mentioning appear the 24 months extension of the standard B-170 type Wehr Schulau with CSAV 17400 & while her sistership Wehr Blankenese managed to secure even 17750usd with K-Line a couple of weeks later. Furthermore, the the 1716teu Scotia (1295 @ 14ts, 250 reefers and 21kn) receives 19500usd from Hapag Lloyd for the intensive Brasil - USA trade. Some of the demand in these sizes comes from those operators who look to take container ships instead of the more expensive conbulkers that they usually operate.

Rising levels & periods up to 5 years have been fixed lately in the segment above 2000teu while we´ve experienced some serious forward extensions by many Chrs trying to secure tonnage early for the upcoming months. This reflects our expectation and we continue to see a positive trend, as many Chrs still appear to be in the need for additional tonnage while supply remains tight.
