HOUSTON (ICIS)--Transatlantic eastbound chemical freight rates slipped $3/tonne (€2.28/tonne) this week on waning demand, sources said on Friday.
Eastbound rates on 5,000-tonne shipments fell to $42-47/tonne from the previous $45-50/tonne, mostly because of softening demand.
The Odin report said the rate was higher than the last one done but market sentiment seemed to be that rates would stay flat.
Rates on the eastbound leg for 2,000-tonne shipments remained unchanged, at $62-$67/tonne.
