Shipping broker report ending 05/31/24

For some reason, Carriers prior report was a two week period. The latest report is back to the weekly update.

  • 11 bulkers transactions
  • All modern tonnage, including a newbuild
  • 4 medium or smaller tanker vessel sales
  • 2 container vessel sales
  • 6 newbuild vessel orders

Other then Eastern Pacific Shipping (the backers of CLCO) on the newbuild side, many of the buyers and sellers are unknown entities.
Somewhat quiet in the overall shipping market. But things seem to be relatively busy with the tanker and container segments (avoid the Red Sea and Russian-Ukraine war being the two big factors for tankers and the former for the container sector). Traditionally, Q3 has been when the dry bulk segment gets a lift.
