    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... Read more

    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.

Dynamar (2019) REEFER Analysis - Market Structures, Conventional, Containers

The calm before the storm; 2019 has been an uneventful year in the reefer market but a shakeup is just around the corner. The reefer fleets, both conventional and container, have faced familiar, yet different challenges in the last year but 2020 is likely to be a defining moment for owners and operators alike.

 With trade volumes continuing to show healthy growth, there is no shortage of demand for reefer shipping, yet challenges on the supply side are coming thick and fast. Conventional carriers are perhaps running out of time to operate their old, fuel-hungry ships and container lines have to make a judgement call between settling on scrubbers or switching to alternative fuels. In an already challenging market, these decisions will be crucial.

The IMO2020 deadline could be yet another step in the direction of the containerisation already seen amongst the major fruit traders, or the conventional stalwarts could stubbornly defend their dwindling market share, focussing solely on their most profitable cargoes. Either way, the substantial increase in fuel costs will have to be covered one way or another and the means by which this is done will see the making or breaking of many carriers. Elsewhere, trade tensions continue to cause uncertainty and instability around the globe, adding yet another hurdle for hard-pressed operators.

It is clear that 2019 has been a period of relative calm in the turbulent territory that is the shipping market but 2020 is building up to be bumpy ride for many. The stage is set but much could still unfold, will IMO2020 be another decisive step in the decline of the conventional reefer? Can container carriers continue to capture conventional cargoes? Can a spike in scrapping save those able to shoulder the squeeze?

 All this and more can be found in Dynamar’s recently released tenth edition of its always well-received annual reefer trade study.
