Baltic plans a charterparty tool
(Posted on 02/05/18)
The Baltic Exchange has entered into discussions with a group of Dry Panellist Brokers with the aim of jointly developing a charterparty and recap tool for the dry bulk market. The goal is for the Baltic Exchange and Panellists to work together and produce an industry standardised recap manager and charterparty editor.
The Baltic Exchange Recap Manager (BERM) concept was presented at a meeting with representatives of a group of Baltic Exchange panellists last month in London. Commenting on the discussions, Baltic Exchange Chief Executive Mark Jackson said:
"We've been looking at the post trade space for 12 months and after consultation with our members and Panellists the area of contract management was highlighted. Our joint aim is to develop a broker-centric product that will be adopted by the market. Contract management systems can maximise efficiency and accuracy in contract production and is a key service Shipbrokers provide to their customers. The Baltic is partnering with Chinsay as its technology provider – with this arrangement in place we can build on Chinsay's existing charterparty management system, which is used by many of the major principals and shipbroking companies."
ACM Braemar, E A Gibson, Howe Robinson and CSBL members; Arrow Shipbroking Group, Barry Rogliano Salles, Hartland Shipping Services, Ifchor and Thurlestone Shipping, have agreed to explore this project further with the Baltic Exchange. A working group will look at the possible structure of an agreement and scope the system's functionality.
