SHIPPING MARKET INSIGHT - INTERMODAL
IntermodalOn the 4th of September the Baltic Dry Index marked its highest level for 2019, reaching 2,518 points, while the rest of the dry indices also recorded year-high levels that week with the daily average for Capesize reaching $38,014, for Panamax 76k $ 18,116 and for Supramax  $15,233.
 
Healthy earnings like that was exactly what was needed as the 1st half of 2019 was really bad but the SnP market failed to see increased interest for inspections of available ships and activity was kept rather low compared to what someone would expect given the spot rates at the time.
 
Instead of accepting offers below their expectations, most Sellers were thinking that it would be better to keep the ship and fix on period instead. And it was a valid argument since fixing on period really made sense as rates back then could cover opex, bank repayments and still allow for a good profit.  As appetite for second-hand tonnage was limited, it failed to ignite competition among prospective Buyers and restricted asset values from appreciating as a result.  
 
So the reason why we didn’t see SnP prices going up was because Buyers were reluctant to become bullish for the long run. The fact that the market was coming from a very bad 1st half of 2019 together with the low levels (far below September’s highs) FFAs for q1 –q2 2020 were indicating, scared off many Buyers and consequently denied premiums on values. 
 
Something that no-one could predict back then was what would the effect of IMO 2020 bunkers regulation would be. The regulation that was enforced on 1st of January drove at some point the price of the new fuel to double the old fuel price (350usd/tone Vs 700usd/ton). This was at a time when the market had already corrected from the highs of September 2019 down to the 976 points (2nd of January 2020) and with the Chinese holidays just around the corner, sentiment for the first quarter of the year was already soft as soon as January kicked off and without the coronavirus dramatic spread news having hit headlines yet at that point.
 
Capes were the ones affected the most, with the Baltic Capesize Index turning negative for the first time ever, pushing the BDI to the lowest point for 2020 on 10th of February (411 points). 
 
The SnP market inevitably has been affected with relatively few sales reported for ships less than 10 years old. In the Kamsarmax sector, the M/V OLYMPIC GALAXY (81K 2009 Japan)-BWTS fitted) was sold last week for USD 13,5m to Greek buyers, which represents a discount from the USD 15,65m that the M/V KM TOKYO (83K 2010 Japan) fetched in November 2019. Furthermore the M/V MEDI HONG KONG (82K 2006 Japan) was sold to Qatari buyers for USD 9,25m, whereas in September 2019 the M/V YASA NESLIHAN (82K 2005 Japan) was sold for USD 11,5m. 
 
Despite the discounts recorded, there are not so many candidates available for sale at levels showing that Owners are willing to face last dones, with many Sellers anticipating that the market will recover sooner rather than later. Indeed, we have been seeing a positive correction for Panamax/Kamsarmax rates lately, while it remains to be seen if and when the Capesize market, which still witnesses a negative BCI, will recover.
