MPC Container Ships (MPCC) says the liner market structure is changing, not weakening, as charterers increasingly switch to longer-term fixes.

The Oslo-listed feeder specialist also revealed seven new charters of its own, while selling another vessel.

Six feeder ships have been fixed for between 34 and 39 months at daily rates ranging from $27,750 to $42,000, while the 3,586-teu AS Nadia (built 2007) was booked for around three years from July at a whopping $61,000 per day.
