BIMCO invites you to join a free webinar discussing the latest outlook for the shipping industry.
23 June 2017
BIMCO expected newbuild activity to pick up, so the recent development is not surprising. It is however not what the industries needs.
As the dry bulk -, crude oil - and oil product tanker shipping sectors are all struggling with very low freight rates, it is important that the recent development in contracting activity reflects a short-term trend.

BIMCO’s Chief Shipping Analyst Peter Sand, will be speaking at the Bloomberg Intelligence (BI) Webinar on 23 May 2017 at 10:30 (15:30 GMT).
20 April 2017
Oil tankers experienced a tough start to 2017 as freight rates for all crude oil and oil product tankers continued their decline following the brief lift at year-end. For one, VLCCs may not yet have bottomed out. By 7 April 2017, average earnings stood at USD 18,853 per day, down from USD 63,284 per day on 16 December 2016.
02 February 2017
January 2017 already accounts for 22% of the crude oil tankers previous year’s total deliveries, due to tremendous VLCC delivery growth.

09 March 2017
The dry bulk fleet exceeded 800 mill DWT in January 2017, as the dry bulk fleet grew by 2.6% year on year.
BIMCO’s Chief Shipping Analyst Peter Sand expects the dry bulk fleet to grow 1.6% for the full year in 2017, if the projected demolition activity of 19 mill DWT is realised.
The declining growth rate from the panamax, supramax and handysize segments was absorbed by a growing capesize fleet; the total fleet growth was stable in 2016.
