Latest opinion: 20 June 2018

20 June 2018: A divided market
Eco-ships will be able to bargain a considerable premium over their vintage counterparts in the wake of higher bunker prices, resulting in a two-tier market. Post-2020, we expect steep LSFO/ MGO prices, coupled with cheaper HFO prices to lead to a three-tier structure.

14 June 2018: Emerging consumers to support coal trade
While coal demand and imports in Europe, India and China are slowing down, emerging consumers in South East Asia will salvage coal trade to a certain extent.

28 Mar 2018: Trump’s steel tariff blow
President Trump’s decision to slap a 25% tariff on steel imports might not be all bad news, as alternative trading patterns could lead to an increase in tonne-mile demand.
