   The Aframax tanker ProStar recently made its first North American delivery to discharge 442,131 barrels of jet fuel at Seaport Canaveral.
    Built in 2018, the 820-foot-long, 144-foot-wide ProStar, with a crew of 23 and a summer dead weight tonnage of 115,000 tons, is the first Aframax vessel to visit Port Canaveral in Florida.
    “The ProStar’s arrival emphasizes Port Canaveral’s growing role in supporting Central Florida’s economic growth,” port CEO John Murray said. “Upgrades to berth infrastructure, our channel and turning basin have enhanced our ability to accommodate increased cargo volumes coming into the region.”
    In keeping with port tradition, Murray and Seaport Canaveral general manager David Smith presented plaques to ProStar Capt. Alexander Ivanishvili to mark the massive double-hulled tanker’s first visit to the port.

   The ProStar, which sailed 45 days from its loading port in South Korea, departed Port Canaveral in mid-March for New York.
    An Aframax ship is a medium-sized crude oil tanker with a dead weight tonnage ranging between 80,000 and 120,000 tons and a capacity to carry up to 132,000 tons of crude oil. The term is based on the average freight rate assessment (AFRA), a tanker ratinh system created in 1954 to standardize shipping contract terms.

A primary concern to the [U.S. Federal Maritime Commission] under the Shipping Act is whether ocean carrier bunker charge adjustment formulas are clear and definite.

Spot container rates from Shanghai to Rotterdam clocked in at $1,312 per FEU as of April 18, down from $1,431 per FEU four weeks prior, and down from $1,656 per FEU eight weeks prior, but still up 14 percent year-over-year, according to data from Drewry's WCI.
