To say that the tanker market in December was a disappointment would be a massive understatement... In fact, for mid-size tankers it was the worst December for spot rates since the early 1990s and for VLCCs it was the worst December since the 1980s. January looks like it will bring more of the same, though weather delays may drive some volatility in certain regional markets. Watch Christian's latest video for all the details.
