Commodities Rise Most in 24 Years; Goldman Sees Gain
June 1 (Bloomberg) -- Manufacturers preparing for an economic rebound are rebuilding inventories of everything from benzene to plywood, sparking a commodities rally that Goldman Sachs Group Inc. says will produce 19 percent returns in a year.

The Journal of Commerce index that tracks prices of 18 industrial materials gained 9.5 percent in May, the most in a month since the measure began in 1985. Goldman’s forecast on May 8 would beat the firm’s estimate for a 4 percent rise in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index this year.

Aurubis AG, the top manufacturer of copper-wire rods for cars, said last week that demand improved since April. Huntsman Corp., the biggest maker of epoxy adhesives, said May 8 that second-quarter results will benefit from improved sales to customers who have depleted stockpiles. Dow Chemical Co., the largest U.S. chemical maker, said its plants operated at 70 percent of capacity in April, up from 45 percent in December.

Genco’s latest South Korean newbuilding has started to earn a living with a $26.28m two year charter to Morgan Stanley.

There were also very attractive rates elsewhere as the sun shone on the capesize sector although these were all voyage charters.


The 170,000-dwt Genco Commodus has been chartered from its Sundong building berth in late July at $36,000 a year. The vessel was originally due for delivery early in the second quarter so it looks as if there has been about a three month delay in handover.

China Steel Express’ 176,000 China Steel Responsibility (built 2003) gets between $105,000 and $97,000 a day for a South America return voyage out of the Netherlands. The higher rate applies to a Northern Europe redelivery port with the lower rate for Portugal. The vessel was chartered as a Mitsui OSK relet to CTC.

Rio Tinto fixed a couple of vessels for China – Australia return voyages with Baliwag Navigation’s 151,000-dwt Blazing River (built 1993) getting $86,000 a day and Geden Line’s 177,000-dwt Flash (built 2009) on $85,000 a day but as a Cargill relet.

Oldendorff fixed Shoei Kisen’s 180,000-dwt Sea Victory (built 2004) for a Middle East – Brazil – China voyage at $84,000 a day.


Morgan Stanley also did the biggest deal in the panamax sector paying around $11.7m to get Allseas’ 73,000-dwt Deep Seas (built 1999) for 23 to 25 months trading at $16,000 a day.

Swiss Marine fixed Tsakos’82,000-dwt London 2012 (built 2007) for five to seven months traing at $25,250 a day while GMI is paying $25,000 a day for a similar period charter of Cido Shipping’s 77,000-dwt Fortune Clover (built 2006)

Ta Ho Maritime’s 70,000-dwt Jia Ho (built 1997 got $18,000 a day for four to six months from 2010Ship Singapore

In the voyage market Eships fixed the 74,000-dwt Alpha Flame for a Singapore – South Africa – India voyage at $24,500 a day while undisclosed charterers are paying $24,000 a day to get the 73,000-dwt Vinalines Global (built 1994) to do a Persian Gulf – Far East voyage.

Grand China Shipping is paying $23,000 a day for the 74,000-dwt Mega Donor (built 1997) to make a China – North Pacific return voyage.

The 71,000-dwt Yuan Xi (built 1997) is off on a China – Australia – Far East voyage for undisclosed interests at $23,000

Norden fixed the 75,000-dwt Gurasis (built 1997) for two laden legs from China to the Far East at $21,000 a day.


In the supramax market Oldendorff paid top dollar fixing the 56,000-dwt Nord Leader (built 2007) at $31,500 a day for a Gulf of Mexico to a UK – continent range port to also include Morocco.

The 52,000-dwt Lepta Galaxy (built 2002) was also fixed by Oldendorff for a Black Sea – Norway – South Africa – Far East trip at $21,500 a day.

Chinese interests fixed the 55,000-dwt Ocean Spirit (built 2006) for a Taiwan – South East Asia – China voyage at $18,000 a day.

BULK/COAL - Newcastle port queues jump to 6-month high

Wednesday, 03 June 2009

Vessel queues at Australia's Newcastle port, the world's largest coal export terminal, jumped to a six-month high of above 40 in the latest week, as recent weather-related disruptions cause a backlog of ships to build up.

Data from the Hunter Coal Chain Logistics Team, which coordinates coal movements from mines to the port, showed vessel queues jumped to 43 in the week to June 1, versus 35 the previous week, and are now hovering at year-ago levels before the onset of the global recession.

The logistics firm said ship queues are expected to remain in the high to mid 30's level throughout June.

The swelling ship queues, which come after nearly two months of intermittent shipping disruptions at the port, have in part led to a spike in freight rates, as dozens of panamax and cape-sized vessels wait at the Australian port for more than a week.

Australian producers said the jump in ship queues had been caused by weather-related disruptions at the port. Restricted vessel movements at the port due to rough sea conditions over the months of April and May have created a backlog of ships waiting to load coal.

Newcastle Port last month cut export allocations for all coal producers by a total of 1 million tonnes for the rest of the second quarter in a bid to reduce ship queues.

About 80 per cent of the coal shipped through the port are thermal coal used mainly by power stations. Companies shipping through the Newcastle port include Xstrata Plc, Coal & Allied Industries Ltd, majority-owned by Rio Tinto Ltd and Centennial Coal Ltd.
