     波罗的海及国际海事委员会首席航运分析师Peter Sand在上周一的航运业前景网络研讨会上表示:经过了动荡的2016年,集装箱航运业在2017年有所回暖,但对于干散货和液体散货来说,运力管理仍是关键因素。 
BIMCO: Capacity management still critical for shipping industry
The container shipping industry is seeing improvements in 2017 in the wake of a tumultuous 2016, but as is the case in dry bulk and wet bulk shipping, capacity management is the critical factor, Peter Sand, chief shipping analyst at the Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO) said in a webinar on the shipping industry outlook last Monday.
“In the shipping industry, we can do literally nothing about the demand side but being at service to our customers, but we need to manage the fleet growth in order to improve that vital fundamental balance to lift utilization of our assets to make better use of our investments and then actually make a profit at the end of the day when the balance between demand and supply is just right,” Sand said.
In the first seven months of 2017, the China Containerized Freight Index grew by 20.7 percent compared to the corresponding 2016 period, Sand said. However, as freight rates in the container shipping industry recover, their rise seems to be magnified beyond their actual performance, since they were so low last year, he explained. Consequently, in some instances, the improved rates may still be at loss making levels.
