VACCINES GET FREIGHT MOVING AGAIN: THE OUTLOOK FOR OIL AND SHIPPING
With coronavirus vaccines being applied around the globe, there is finally some scope for optimism in forecasts for shipping and oil markets in line with the wider economy as the year progresses.

- Covid-related restrictions on seafarers’ movement and vaccine transport impacts

Covering container, dry bulk and tanker markets, we focus on:
- Factors behind resilience in high-sulphur fuel demand
