The Baltic Exchange
The Baltic Exchange is the world's only independent source of maritime market information
for the trading and settlement of physical and derivative shipping contracts.
Our international community of over 600 member firms encompasses the majority of world shipping interests and commits to a code of business conduct encapsulated in the motto "our word our bond".
Baltic Exchange members are responsible for a large proportion of all dry cargo and tanker fixtures as well as the sale and purchase of merchant vessels.
Headquartered in London, with regional offices in Singapore, Shanghai and Athens, the Baltic is owned by its shareholders, most of whom are members. It is governed by a board of directors elected by shareholders and members.
