WEEK 43 | Tuesday 29th October 2019

During the past few weeks we have witnessed the shipping industry focusing primarily on the wet sector, which is absolutely normal as after many years we saw freight rates on tankers, especially on big tonnage vessels, reaching astonishing levels with some cases like the VLs for specific routes surpassing the $300,000/day.
