Diana Shipping has entered into a time charter contract with the Singapore-based provider of shipping transportation services Koch Shipping, for one of its Capesize dry bulk vessels, the m/v Baltimore.

The global shipping company specializing in the ownership of dry bulk vessels said that the gross charter rate is US$15,000 per day, minus a 5% commission paid to third parties, for a period of about 19 months to about 22 months. The charter commenced on May 19, 2019.

The "Baltimore" is a 177,243 dwt Capesize dry bulk vessel built in 2005.

This employment is anticipated to generate approximately US$8.33 million of gross revenue for the minimum scheduled period of the time charter.
