S&P Global Platts would like to clarify that its global dry bulk $/mt voyage charter assessments reflect load/discharge and turn time rates that are typical at each port.
The load/discharge rates and turn times that are applicable to the ports for each voyage charter assessment can be found here: http://plts.co/xGWe30s2FGY.
These variables are also used in the corresponding time charter equivalent assessments.
