World freight shipping prices, particularly the cost of transporting dry raw materials, are steaming ahead at record levels, powered mainly by China's insatiable demand for bulk levels of imported commodities.
The Baltic Dry Index, measuring the shipment of dry bulk commodities on 24 routes around the world, shot to 6,134 points last week, the highest level since its inception on London's Baltic Exchange in 1985.
The Baltic Panamax Index, comprising seven dry bulk routes, climbed to 6,110 points last week, a record peak since its launch in 1998.

The Baltic Exchange's Panamax index smashed records again on Monday, jumping 150 points to 6,032, versus a starting point of 1,000 in December 1998.
Modern panamax rates for the benchmark route from the US Gulf to Japan were quoted at US$70-US$75 a ton, rising from around US$67-US$68 a week earlier and rapidly approaching record highs of US$75-US$80 seen in February.
Freight rates have been volatile since September 2003, soaring to record highs in February on Chinese demand for raw materials such as iron ore to feed its booming economy.

|16:59||coalBulk rates rally on strong minerals, grain demands|
Panamax dry bulk rates this week are up more than 20% from a year ago, backed by strong Asian demand to ship iron ore and grains, reports Shipping News.
Demand for charters of panamax ships is also being driven up by a shortage of capesize vessels - ships that carry more than 100,000 tones of cargo predominantly used to move iron ore and coal, brokers said.
Voyage rates for modern panamax for the benchmark US Gulf to Japan route were quoted at $67-68 per ton for December shipments, up from spot deals seen last week around $62-63 per ton and inching close to record levels of $75-80 per ton seen 9 months ago.
'China appears to be aggressive about shipping iron ore and this uptrend is expected to stay until January, ahead of the Chinese New Year,' said a broker at a Japanese shipping company.
Strength in capesize rates had increased demand for smaller panamax ships carrying about 55,000 tons and handymax ships carrying about 25,000 tons, pushing up both spot and charter prices, brokers said.
Seoul brokers said Asian importers of coking coal and iron ore were maximizing imports before their term contracts terminate at the end of the first quarter of 2005 as the next round of term contracts were expected to see price rises.
