SMM closes today

Hamburg: SMM, the world’s largest shipping event, comes to a close today. Despite record numbers – both globally and from a China perspective – the air of doom and gloom was palpable. While the stands were remarkably busy, the Baltic Dry Index in London continued to plunge, dropping a further nine points yesterday to 675 points. Chinese participants admitted to SinoShip News that actual business inquiries have been thin on the ground in Hamburg, especially among the many shipyards attending.  [07/09/12]
