Fixbo - Index


(4.12.2017) The Ballast Water Convention is in force as of 8 september 2017 and is applicable to all ships, which are carrying ballastwater. These ship need to have a certificate, an approved management plan and a ballastwater record book on board.

The purpose of the Convention is to prevent the introduction of alien or new species in the aquatic environment. These species are being carried on board of sea-going vessels in the ballastwater and may be harmful to the aquatic environment. Ships will have to treat their ballastwater or will have to prevent in another way the transport of species.

(9.11.2017) Im September 2017 wurden von Deutschland Waren im Wert von 110,4 Milliarden Euro exportiert und Waren im Wert von 86,3 Milliarden Euro importiert. Wie das Statistische Bundesamt (Destatis) anhand vorläufiger Ergebnisse weiter mitteilt, waren damit die deutschen Exporte im September 2017 um 4,6 % und die Importe um 5,5 % höher als im September 2016. Kalender- und saisonbereinigt nahmen die Exporte gegenüber dem Vormonat August 2017 um 0,4 % und die Importe um 1,0 % ab.

(24.11.2017) The New ConTex remains stable now reported with 400 points means no changes compared to last week. The tonnage demand remains in majority of our reported segments high and some areas are even empty of tonnage like 1700 teu.

Only one position is left in the Caribs / Mediterranean Sea and Continent area are “sold out”. The comparison on Year – on – Year shows still positive figures between 8,2% growth (only) on the 1100 teu design and  80% on the 4250 TEU design.

It is worth to mention that the containership fleet has reached a new high of 21 Mteu in November, but the pace of growth has slowed in the last two years The slowdown was mainly due to increased scrapping activity in late 2016.

Although the year-on-year growth in total containership capacity is only 3.5%, the growth rate of the active fleet reaches 1 Mteu (9%) after taking into account the substantial reduction of the unemployed (idle) capacity.

(10.11.2017) The "69. Eisbeinessen" event has been successfully passed and we are entering now the dark season of the year. In the first week of November, the New ConTex had to accept crossing the level of 400 points again and is now evaluated at 398. This momentum is strongly supported by the negative trend of the Panamax rates, which are now 7,8% lower (m-o-m basis) for the 24 mos evaluation, resp. even 11,2% lower (m-o-m basis) for the 12 mos evaluation.
One exemption in the rate development is represented by the 12 mos evaluation of the 1700 TEU class. Contrary to all other evaluations these ships are earning on a w-o-w basis even 0,7% (USD 61,-) compared to what has been evaluated during the Eisbein week. For this particular segment, quite some demand has been seen recently, which is in particular trading areas also reflected in the rates achieved whilst fixing. A good part of the tonnage still becoming available during the balance of 2017 will likely be extended, i.e. it might be the case that we see further recovery at least in this class.

(3.11.2017) The New ConTex Index lost one point over the week to stand at 400. Although it is the "classical" panamaxes (4250 TEUs) which continue to be the chief cause of this decline, there seem to be some weaknesses developing elsewhere.

In fact all the component rates lost ground with the exception of the 2700 TEUs sector which managed a 0.5% gain on the week (basis 12 months) but only a barely detectable US$ 5 increase basis 24 months. As for those sectors which registered losses, it was a mixed picture with the geared 1100 TEUs and 2500 TEUs facing more challenging times again.

Given the public holidays around the globe this week and the annual Eisbeinessen in Hamburg, Owners should not be too alarmed at this stage; the next few weeks will be more important in judging what strength the market is in as we head towards the end of the year.

Happy Eisbein!!!
