Investors, FFAs and Advisors

To be an investor or analyst means you need to study the risk before investing or giving your advice. An investor who commits capital in steel, stocks, commodities or FFAs might want to study the underlying market fundamentals, and check TCE for specific vessels and compare it with the FFAs. Analysts and advisors might want to study trades related to specific types of vessels, find how many newbuildings have been delivered last year or whether canals and specific ports have congestion and will pull out vessels in service.

Use Maritime Optima to:

Better understand the supply side and trading pattern of vessels to understand the operational risk for the stock you have invested in.

Find where BW LPG vessels are trading if you have invested in BW LGP.

Find how many vessels there are within a segment (tankers) and sub-segment (Suez max) 5 years old or younger with specific technical parameters.

Find which type of vessels are waiting to pass a canal, awaiting at anchorage to better understand the operational risk.

Do quick "back of the envelope" voyage calculation and compare the TCE for different type of cargoes (coal, grain, iron ore) for vessels you want to invest in.

Be aware of the operational risk

Now and then you will read in the news that there will be limited transit through one of the "global canals" due to strikes, accidents, weather conditions, or politics etc., and then you might want to monitor the situation; find which vessels are waiting and how many vessels arrives and leave the area within a period of time.

Turn on the congestion or area monitoring area and get insights in the operational risk.

Do quick voyage calculations for a group of vessels and cargoes in seconds  

Select vessels and cargos for your voyage calculations.

A workspace is created and you can name it as you like: “Dry cargo bench mark vs actual vessels”.

New voyage calculations are done automatically while you are adding vessels or cargoes to your workspace. The TCE (USD/day), number of days it takes to perform the voyage, where the vessel will be open, and the cargo emissions are listed, so you can filter as you you like.
