  • Dynamarkets Monitor - A potential new role for the EU in shaping global shipping norms

    In recent weeks,  European Parliament has voted to include shipping within the bloc’s carbon dioxide (CO2) Emissions Trading System (ETS), a scheme within which polluters have to pay for their pollution through the purchase of allowances. The move raises important questions for those involved in the practical end of shipping, while also challenging the perceptions of the role of th...
  • Dynamarkets Monitor - Movement towards more multi-modality

      The shift towards multi-modality is now one of the most prevalent themes within transport research and transport policy.

In Europe, and the European Union in particular, ...
  • Dynamarkets Monitor - Virus responses lead to a reshuffled tanker trade

    The coronavirus pandemic instigated an unprecedented social, economic and political shock around the world. While there has been no uniform approach and the size and nature of the shocks has varied, trading patterns for almost all countries have been impacted. The reorientation of markets and supply chains is now becoming evident and this is especially true for the tanker market. The high le...
  • DynaMarkets Monitor - Political Posturing, investment deals and chemical supply chains

      There can be no doubt about it, China is now one of the world’s chemical cluster powerhouses.

  • DynaMarkets Monitor - Capacity cuts or market management?

    As a result of the strict capacity management by the carriers, rates have remained strong and earnings for the major shipping lines have remained remarkably stable given the horrific market circumstances encountered in the first half of the year. The management of capacity, and therefore the indirect management of rates, has raised questions about the market power that is now exerted by the ma...
  • DynaMarkets Monitor - The future trade and foreign policy of Chinese iron ore imports

    The global pandemic that has ravaged supply chains and economies around the world has given food for thought throughout many sectors, including resource management and dependency.

The Chinese iron ore trade is the driver of the dry bulk market for the larger vessel ranges a...

  • DynaMarkets Monitor - Renewed reefer optimism or short-term spike?

      At the end of 2019, it appeared as though a storm was brewing for the conventional reefer market; little did the market know that a storm was brewing for the entire shipping industry.

  • DynaMarkets Monitor - Are sanctions set to shake up the tanker market again?

    In yet another move that could shake up the tanker market, the US has recently signalled a renewed attempt to put pressure on Venezuelan oil exports.

  • DynaMarkets Monitor - Time to take stock: New normal, underlying uncertainty

    Now that various world economies, trade lanes and individual producers are beginning to open up, perhaps it is time to take stock. Towards the end of 2019 and into the beginning of 2020, things were beginning to look up for the container shipping sector. While 2019 will not go down as a particularly tough time in the grand scheme of things, many will agree that it could be characterised by one...

  • DynaMarkets Monitor - Dry Bulk down in the doldrums.

    The start of 2020 has been a pretty awful time for the dry bulk shipping market, both in absolute terms and relevant to other shipping sectors. While pressure on earnings had been building through the fourth quarter of 2019 following surprisingly elevated earnings through the late summer and early autumn, nobody was expecting the shock to come. The confluence of market pressures that came to...
  • Dynaliners Daily - DynaLiners Shares Index - V or W?

    The recovery of liner shipping stocks, if we dare to call it that, is very much “V” shaped. This week’s DynaLiners Shares Index kept the momentum of the previous weeks with a nineteen point gain to 848. Despite what has been going on, it is now above the figure of week 19/2019, which was 817 points. The question is whether the upwards trajectory will be maintained or will we f...

  • DynaLiners Opinion - An invisible trade in the limelight
