Drewry’s newest evaluation
April has been characterised by a wait and see strategy from shippers as varied Easter holidays produced a month of stop-start exercise. Add to this the affect of Chinese language lockdowns on each port operations and manufacturing output, the continued battle in Ukraine taking the Black Sea market to new depths and sky-high gasoline costs.
Going ahead into Could and the chances are the pent-up demand in China ought to assist the longer haul, heavy carry sector, nevertheless will that be launched in time to have an effect on this month’s spot charges? We expect that’s unlikely and container charges will proceed to melt. The driving issue for the MPV market during the last 12 months has been the spill over cargo from the container sector, whether or not that’s containers themselves or commodities which have moved again to breakbulk.
Over the subsequent month our view is that ongoing weak spot within the Helpful sector will assist to maintain spot fee rises subdued, as they add to the competitors for breakbulk cargo, nevertheless we might even see renewed fee progress over the summer season as China comes again on-line.
