Australia – Capesize (>100k dwt) PSC Intelligence CY 2022
Australia is an area with high rate of dry cargo trading conducted by Capesize bulk carriers which are large-sized bulk carriers typically above 100,000 deadweight tonnage (DWT). Such ships cannot transit the Panama Canal and hence, the way from Atlantic to Indian & Pacific is conducted via the Cape of Good Hope. Capesize ships are mainly used for the transportation of coal, iron ore and commodity raw materials.
