Multipurpose charter rates continue to rise

Time charter rates in the multipurpose shipping sector have marginally increased over the last month, according to the latest data from shipbroker Toepfer Transport.

This represents an increase of USD818 compared to the rate of USD6,700 at the same time last year.
