Box analysis and comment

Weekly Briefing: More container congestion | Active dry bulk market | How low can tankers go?

The sizzling dry bulk sector meanwhile has attracted new plays from both box operator Costamare and former tanker tycoon Tor Olav Trøim, proving that bulk is now the place to be. Tankers, sadly, is not the place to be, unless your play is very, very long.
