Platts launches two new dirty barge assessments for cross-Rotterdam and Rotterdam-Antwerp routes, effective April 1, 2016.
The new assessments will reflect established trade routes for fuel oil transported on barges in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) area, and will be based on double-hull barge tonnage.
The assessments will be published on a $/mt basis to reflect how these routes are traded.
ROTTERDAM TO ROTTERDAM: This assessment will reflect movements of dirty barges between terminals in the Rotterdam harbor, carrying a 4,000 mt cargo of fuel oil.
ROTTERDAM TO ANTWERP: This assessment will reflect a dirty barge route from Rotterdam to Antwerp, carrying a 4,000 mt cargo of fuel oil.
