A global dislocation of clean tanker tonnage has driven freight volatility in recent weeks, as charterers scramble for barrels in east and west of Suez markets to satisfy European and South American demand.
In this episode of the Commodities Focus podcast, Americas freight senior managing editor Barbara Troner speaks with EMEA middle distillate editor Rowan Staden-Coats and shipping editors Sameer Mohindru in Singapore and Chris To in London about how the Russia-Ukraine conflict has exacerbated the global shortage in diesel markets and to what extent the replacement of Russian-origin diesel barrels has driven recent volatility in the global clean tanker markets.
This Commodities Focus podcast was produced by Jennifer Pedrick in Houston and Felix Fernandez in London.
