Can the dry bulk shipping industry maintain supply discipline?

Report summary

The maritime bulk shipping sector remains in a profound crisis. Weak growth in dry bulk seaborne trade, the ongoing addition of new bulk carrier capacity, and variable vessel demolition rates have caused shipping companies' earnings to decline. Current market time charter rates are insufficient to cover operating costs despite reductions in the operating costs. Without rationalisation, overcapacity has reached levels that will take several years of growth to bring balance to supply and demand.
