Japanese shipowners have the largest number of handysize bulkers on order accounting for 14%.

Some 102 ships of 3.3 million dwt are on order for Japanese-based principals out of the total of 718 ships, French broker Barry Rogliano Salles (BRS) says.

BRS says Japanese shipowners are already the third largest owners of handysize tonnage on the water.

Greek owners are in second place with 91 ships or about 13% of the handysize orderbook in deadweight terms.

German and South Korean owners have the next highest number of handysize bulkers on order with 64 and 59 ships respectively.

China, surprisingly, is only in fifth place despite owning the biggest share of delivered tonnage.

BRS attributes this to China concentrating its efforts on the capesize and VLOC segments in the face of its huge iron ore import needs.

Softer still
Capesizes continued their descent as the index dropped 183 points and spot rates waned while period fixtures dried up.

Rates have also stagnated in the panamax sector after a sustained period of growth but there was hefty activity between China and India with BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto inevitably involved.


Capesizes (Index 58.164 USD/d)

Noble spent $62,500 a day for a roundtrip from China to Australia with the 177,200-dwt Elegant Star (built 2005) but this is down on recent deals and was as good as it got on Wednesday.

The charterer also spent $46,000 daily on another Pacific roundtrip with the 151,400-dwt C Laurel (built 1990).

A roundtrip from China to Brazil also set STX Pan Ocean back $46,000 with the 149,300-dwt C Harmony (built 1994).


Panamaxes (Index 27.685 USD/d)

Period charters were thin on the ground and the $19,000 a day Bunge paid for 11 to 13 months with the 73,200-dwt Nicos L (built 2001) is hardly huge.

Komrowski spent $25,000 a day for a period with the 75,200-dwt Dione (built 2001) but this is only for a month or two.

Rates were steady for lists out of Australia with Rio and BHP paying $21,000 a day each for roundtrips from China, the former with the 69,600-dwt Beilun Seal (built 1997) and the latter with the 73,500-dwt Bremen Max (built 1993).

Grand China spent $1,000 a day more on the same itinerary with the 74,000-dwt Tian Bai Feng (built 2000) with BHP also spending $22,000 daily on a similar voyage but heading out from Japan and on to India with the 75,300-dwt Maria Bottiglieri (built 1995).

Rates were a bit better in the Atlantic but nothing astounding. The 62,400-dwt Costa Ilios (built 1982) cost $23,500 a day plus a ballast bonus of $600,000 for a run from the US Gulf to the Med.

And the 61,200-dwt Yialia (built 1980) attracted $24,000 for a trip from the Med to Black Sea and Red Sea.


Supramaxes (Index 21.808 USD/d)

There were a couple of one-year deals at steady rates, Prime East paying $18,000 for a 58,500-dwt newbuild from China and SST getting the 58,000-dwt Jin Gang (built 2009) for $18,750.

Two voyages from India to China showed that rates are still good in this sector, however.

Seawin spent $29,000 on the 57,000-dwt Father Neptune (built 2009) and Prime East $33,000 on the 53,600-dwt Port Nelson (built 2001).

Article from: The Australian

HERE we go again. Yesterday's observation by the Reserve Bank that just moments into economic recovery Australia's export infrastructure is already nearing capacity constraints will come as no surprise to the key players in Australia's logistics chain.

I mean, anyone with a good pair of binoculars looking to the eastern horizon of Newcastle harbour could tell you as much.

Newcastle's boat queues are once again stretching out as demand for the Hunter Valley's high-quality thermal coal reflects incipient Asian economic recovery.

As recently as May there were but 17 ships waiting to berth at the Port Waratah loaders to take Hunter Valley coal to the region's power stations. Today there are 52, which is double what most regard as the optimum number for the port. And within a month, given current trends, we might well be back into the 70s.

The story is the same further north in Queensland. There were 49 ships queueing off Mackay yesterday despite the recent completion of a $1.3 billion expansion of Queensland's key coal terminal, Dalrymple Bay, to a capacity of 85 million tonnes a year.
