This article provides information on the global chemical shipping activity. A strike in the Fos-Lavera oil and gas terminal impacted the Mediterranean, even after it was called off 17 days later. Icy conditions in the Baltic restricted movement during February and March. North Sea business remained restricted by the lack of available vessel space. Inter-Mediterranean routes were busy in early March, but the number of fixtures reported was comparatively low due to the competition for space.
