JFD represents a diverse client portfolio ranging from sugar traders to grain millers to iron ore miners. These clients each operate within their own markets and may be unfamiliar with the freight activities of other commodity groups. We bridge that gap by providing our clients with the big picture, taking into account the activities of the various commodity groups using dry bulk carriers. This advantage helps us anticipate freight market developments going forward as well as long term market trends. We also maintain a data base of real-time voyage and time charter fixtures. JFD corresponds with hundreds of ship brokers, operators and owners worldwide, giving our clients complete access to the world-wide dry bulk freight market.
