The article presents updates on the chemical shipping industry. Shipping routes are active, with February 2007 heralding a steady increase in enquiries on European coastal routes. Deep-sea business is up, and wintery weather takes its toll. The Baltic Sea has been plagued by the onset of icy conditions that have, in some cases, made access difficult. As a consequence of limited vessel capacity, rates have been moving upwards, and trade has become brisk, according to brokers.
