Coaster freight market. Mediterranean Sea // week 46

17.11.16
20:07

The number of cargo offers is growing in the western Mediterranean. Market players believe this could be the start of a pre-holiday increase in trade. In particular, more requests for spot shipments of steel products from Italy and Spain to Algeria are reported in the market. The cargo traffic is stable in the eastern part of the basin; it is supported by regular shipments of Turkish cement and steel.

The number of available coaster vessels is decreasing in the region, as Azov-Black Sea basin now looks much more attractive for the owners. In these circumstances, they are confidently raising the rates within $1-1.5/t. The contracts for transportation of 2-2,500 t of steel from Seville to Algeria are signed at €18-19/t. Carrying 5,000 t of steel products from the northern Adriatic costs about €19-20/t. A 6,000 t lot of steel from the west coast of Italy on the same route has been fixed at $15/t. The deal for transportation of 5,000 t of steel from Iskenderun to Egypt has failed given the difference in freight ideas (the charterer offered $10-11/t, the owner – $13/t). Similar cargo lot from eastern Greece to Constanta has been fixed at $11/t. A 4,000 t lot of steel from northern Spain to Turkey (two discharge ports) has been fixed at $32-34/t; the deal for transportation of a similar cargo lot from Naples to the two discharge ports in the Black and Marmara Seas has been signed at $17/t. Carrying 3,000 t of steel products from Barcelona to the UK is quoted by brokers at $25/t. Carrying 5-7,000 of cement in big bags from Iskenderun to Ashdod is negotiated at $20-22/t. According to brokers, shipping 4,000 t of the cargo on the above route may cost $22-23/t. The charterer was trying to ship 3,000 t of dwt minerals from Livorno to Egypt at $17/t, though the owner wanted to get $18-19/t. A small lot of feldspar (1,700 t) from Gulluk to Alexandria has been fixed at $17-18/t. The deal for shipment of 2,000 t of phosphates from Lebanon to Soussaki has been signed at $13-14/t. The owners are ready to ship 2,500 t of agricultural products (sf 60`) from the southern Adriatic to Tunisia at €23/t, though the charterer is ready to pay at best €20/t.

In the second half of November, the cargo traffic is likely to stabilize in the western part of the region. However, some rates may go up further due to the limited number of open vessels in the Mediterranean Sea.
