Freight Falls, Iron Ore's Rise & Oil Market Heats Up!

Iron Ore's Resurgence and Oil's Rally: Navigating the Current Commodity Climbs!

Hello and welcome back to Freight Up, the number 1 commodities and freight markets podcast from FIS.

I'm your host, Fernanda, and in this episode of Freight Up it's a mix of emotions as I'll be saying my final goodbye to you.

But before you and I dock for the last time, let's chart the course for today's adventure through the world of Freight and Commodities.

We'll welcome aboard Jessica Free, our very own new marketing executive, who'll share some tantalizing tidbits about the much-anticipated overhaul of our FIS Live app.

As we navigate through today's choppy waters, we'll examine the downturn in freight indices and investigate the iron ore market's surprising resurgence.

Plus, we'll dissect the impact of geopolitical turbulence on soaring oil prices.

Our crew of Freight Uppers for this episode includes:

Ben Klang, who'll talk us through bulk carrier rates

Hao Pei, whose market insights keep us ahead of the curve

And Archie Smith, the people's broker, who'll unpack the reasons behind crude oil's climb above $90...

So, grab your life vest as we set sail one last time together.

It's an honor to have been your captain here on Freight Up, and I'm thrilled to have you with me for one final voyage.
