"Nothing Is Moving," Baltic Dry Crashes As Insiders Warn "Commerce Has Come To A Halt"

No ships on the high seas?
Acres of unsold cars?
Sounds like a dystropian SF novel...

  1. I'm not disputing that ship traffic is reduced but it has not stopped. The AIS transmitter on each ship is VHF, so it's limited to line-of-sight, about 15 miles between ships. A ship in the mid-ocean is thousands of miles out of range of the AIS system and therefore invisible to it.

    I was awaiting a car from England a few years ago and for six days it was not on the tracking website until it was approached the coast of Newfoundland.
