Container update 13th November, 2008


Another three weeks have passed since our last report and we´re still having a hard time to see any positive signs from the bulk or container segment or as one could also say: let´s hope we´re getting closer to the bottom of this crisis. With oil prices dropping steadily this might be the straw that everybody is grasping even though the number of spot ships is still increasing around the globe and even in the remotest areas Charterers can find tonnage these days.

To use the word highlight do describe the latest fixture might be a little delusive but gless CV 1100´s like the Taga Bay have been achieving usd 8000 out of a spot position while the geared 2742teu Lorraine managed to secure usd 11800 also from the Geneve based player to trade along the Continent. Even new, high spec tonnage like the grd, 2007 built, 1300teu (925 @ 14ts) and 449 reeferplug  "Shanti" is soaked up these days for only usd 8000 from French giant CMA CGM while Nile Dutch secured the grd, 2007 built, 1856teu (1285 @ 14ts) "Violetta" for a Cont/West Africa round voyage at usd 9900.
