Multipurpose rates down USD 1,000 per day since February
The effects of the coronavirus outbreak have only just started to affect the multipurpose and heavy lift markets in earnest, at a time when operators are already looking into an offshore market that all but vanished overnight. All eyes are on one market in particular.
Ever Given's ship manager, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, does not expect to be made liable for the incident in the Suez Canal, but is nevertheless worried that the company's reputation could be at risk, CEO tells ShippingWatch.
The claim for compensation from the Suez Canal Authority is largely "unsubstantiated," says shipping company Evergreen, which hereby confirms the claim of USD 916 million. The parties have not yet reached an agreement.
