Carbon Cost of Freight indexes for shipping commodities

Carbon Cost of Freight (CCF) indexes give an insight into the cost of emissions generated when moving crude oil, refined products, LPG, coal, iron ore, grains and petroleum coke into or from the EU. They are published as lump sums paid per cargo and as $/t rates, as well as in $/bl for certain crude grades.

The list of routes with corresponding CCF indexes is in the table below:

TCE tanker assessments

Argus publishes TCE (Time Charter Equivalent Rates) for 25 of the world’s important crude and refined products routes.

These assessments, provide market players with robust pricing references to track daily vessel earnings and make informed chartering decisions.

Considering the rising fuel efficiency in the global tanker fleet, Argus TCE rates are based on bunker consumption by modern tonnage.

 

Demurrage Price Assessments

Demurrage can be just as important as the freight rate for counterparties in a freight deal. Weather delays, port congestion, storage issues and many other factors can lead to demurrage taking up a massive proportion of the overall costs and the resulting freight bill.

Argus brings extra transparency to the tanker market by publishing demurrage on major trade routes for crude and petroleum products. These daily indexes can be used in contract negotiation, performance analytics, or benchmarking.

List of Demurrage assessments:

VLCC Suezmax Aframax MR
Atlantic basin to Asia  Black Sea to Med  Black Sea to Med Atlantic Coast Americas
Mideast Gulf to East  Mideast Gulf to East  Kozmino to North China  

Assessments for delays in key seaborne transit points

In August 2022 we launched a range of TCE (Time Charter Equivalent Rates) tanker assessments, covering 25 of the world’s important crude and refined products routes.

These new assessments, which are powered by Argus Freight and Marine Fuels data, will provide market players with robust pricing references to track daily vessel earnings and make informed chartering decisions.

This is a timely launch as geopolitical tensions and volatile energy prices have introduced extra layer of uncertainty into the freight market and bunker fuels costs now have an even greater impact on tanker earnings.

Considering the rising fuel efficiency in the global tanker fleet, Argus TCE rates are based on bunker consumption by modern tonnage.

TCE indexes are available exclusively to Argus Freight subscribers.
