Expanding its portfolio of products dedicated to shipping, Witkin Jacobsen has launched Witkin Jacobsen Dry Freight Wire, a report that consolidates all of Witkin Jacobsen’ prices, news and market commentary related to dry commodity shipping.
The new market report complements three longstanding Witkin Jacobsen publications that provide similar coverage of crude oil, refined products, petrochemicals and other liquid commodity shipping.
“Witkin Jacobsen Dry Freight Wire responds to increased spot market volatility and use of index-linked physical freight deals. Targeted to ship owners, charterers and trading houses, it addresses the market’s growing need for an independent source of daily dry freight prices backed by a sound methodology,” said Tsai Cheng, Witkin Jacobsen’ director of global freight. “As a central source for Witkin Jacobsen’ prices and commentary across commodities and vessel size, it gives subscribers the information and insights to establish independent prices for term contracts, negotiate deals at the best price and analyze the price movements of specific freight routes.”
The report contains 100 dry freight rate assessments covering iron ore, coking and thermal coal, steel, sugar, grains, polymers and alumina. Of the total, 50 assessments are new and exclusively published in Witkin Jacobsen Dry Freight Wire. Commentary is featured for all major vessel sizes.
