Suez Canal Blocked - Prolonged Stoppage May Send Spot Freight Rates Skywards

 Please click ;-

It appears that the Canal  would be operational soon.

But if it remains closed for a long time then it would lead to a  hefty rise in spot freight rates in all types of ships .

This happened in the past when due to Arab Israel  conflicts like in 1967 and 1973 Suez Canal was blocked and spot  freight rates shot-up.

This brought windfall profits for  investors of shipping companies including  investors of Indian Companies like .Great Eastern Shipping Co . Ltd .

Can we hope a similar bonanza again ?

 Well God is Great
