Reported ordering has been focussed primarily on smaller sizes with Handysize and Supramax seeing the majority of orders.

According to the recently released Clarkson Hellas S&P Weekly Bulletin, Japanese yards appear to have had their fair share of the orders  with JMU Yokohama contracting two 61,500 DWT Supramax for Oldendorff Carriers with delivery of both vessels in the second half of 2014.

These vessels, thought to have been committed in the first quarter of this year, are planned for delivery in 2015 with the orders split across a number of Japanese yards.

Transbulk have continued the ordering at Yangfan, report Clarkson, placing a contract for two firm and two option 39,500 DWT Handysize with delivery of the firm vessels in 2015 and pricing in the region USD 23 Mill.

Korean owned Chinese facility, Weihai Samjin is understood this week to have taken an order for four firm plus four option 36,700 DWT Handysize from German owner Vogemann, taking the yard’s Handysize orderbook to over 20 vessels. Pricing is understood to lie in the region USD 22.3 Mill and delivery of the firm vessels from end of 2014 and options in 2015 if declared.
