Global Search Configuration

A 360° view of dry bulk


Be armed with the dry bulk insight you need to make intelligent business decisions. 

The Dry Bulk Channel is a one-stop shop for dry bulk carrier information. And because you can customise the information you receive, you’ll know immediately when something happens to a vessel on your radar.

How it works

  • Know where vessels are over and under-supplied – so you can charter vessels for your cargo at the best possible rate
  • Monitor what your competitors are doing – you’ll get alerts on changes in vessel destination, so you can see if your competitors are changing destination to take advantage of better market rates
  • See the volume of raw materials moving in and out of ports with our global dry bulk reports
  • Get early indications of where commodities are moving – monitor vessel movements from key iron ore, coal, grains and phosphate load ports
  • Avoid wasting time waiting outside dry bulk ports to discharge load – you’ll be able to see berthing activity so you can analyse discharge times and availability
