Capesize spot rates have doubled over the last three months with the market now looking for $15-16,000 for a Pacific round trip, compared with about $7,500 in August. Atlantic rates have also soared, although this is partly due to the grounding of the 274,326 dwt ore carrier Weser Ore at Tubarao in Brazil last week.
