DRY BULK/DUMP | Bulk / Dump Loadings & Bulk / Dump Rates
Bulk/Dump loadings rose 1.3% in July but year-over-year gains have slowed noticeably, up just 1.5% in July. Volatile monthly volumes over the last several years have created large swings in the year-over-year growth rates.
Bulk/Dump rates continue to remain negative versus last year. Don’t expect growth until 2012.
