The Baltic Dry Index is reported daily by the Baltic Exchange in London. The index provides a benchmark for the price of moving the major raw materials by sea. The Baltic Dry Index is not restricted to Baltic Sea countries or to a few commodities like crude oil. Instead, the Baltic Dry Index takes into account 23 different shipping routes carrying coal, iron ore, grains and many other commodities. This page includes a chart with historical data for Baltic Exchange Dry Index. Baltic Exchange Dry Index - actual data, historical chart and calendar of releases - was last updated on May of 2018.
