Several of the most prominent international dry bulk carriers have been bleeding cash in 2015 after a year in which billions of dollars were lost in huge deficits, which have in turn triggered major fleet impairments.

A review of the carriers' 2015 annual reports, performed by ShippingWatch among a series of the largest listed dry bulk carriers as well as Denmark's J.
