MARITIME RESEARCH INC. INDEXES

Maritime Research Inc. has been reporting fixtures and compiling indexes since 1953.

Our Grain Freight and Misc. Freight Indexes are weighted indexes of the major trade routes based on survey of our Base year 1972. Our General Freight Index is a combination of both average rates. Actual weights for individual trade routes are based on the frequency of appearance. Our indexes include all the major trade routes that are reported regularly.

Our Timecharter indexes are broken into three components; 1-2 months, 2-3 months & over 6 months. Within each of these three categories, an averaged rate is calculated and compared to our average base rate to give us our weekly index number for each of the three period timecharter components. Finally, these three components are averaged together by weight, then compared to our average base rate to ultimately result in our weekly timecharter index.

All data is drawn from the actualy fixtures details contained in our Maritime Research Fixture Reports.
