Inderpreet covers all vessel sizes in the dry bulk market ranging from valemaxes to handies. She writes analytical reports and market commentaries as well as annual and quarterly outlook, supply analysis, demand assessment and freight market coverage for Lloyd’s List. She has a keen interest in uncovering topics which impact the shipping industry.

Inderpreet contributes to the monthly magazine, The Intelligence and is also involved in other flagship projects like Lloyd’s List Top 100.

She also provides our in-depth coverage on Indian shipping industry and port-related developments in the nation.

Prior to joining Lloyd’s List, Inderpreet was a research analyst with Drewry Maritime Services covering the dry bulk market.

Inderpreet has a master’s degree in economics with a specialisation in international trade and is well versed with analytical platforms like SPSS and SAS.

Originally from India, Inderpreet relocated to Singapore in 2015 as she thought it would be nicer to count the capesizes while stuck in traffic.

When she’s not writing or tracking vessel movements, you can find her rolling through the town which offers plenty of food or revel in dancing to the beats of Bollywood songs.
