Singapore has remained the top international shipping centre for the sixth year running according to Xinhua and the Baltic Exchange annual index which sees no changes in the top eight centres from  2018.

The Baltic Exchange has started a public trial of its LNG shipping index.

Taking a shot at the index-linked rates game, Xeneta has created a new offering, Xeneta Shipping Index (XSI™) that allows all parties to set rates at transparent, efficient and fair prices that directly follow market fluctuations.

The Baltic Exchange has formed an LNG Panelists Group as it looks to develop an LNG shipping index.
