The European Energy Exchange (EEX) achieved another milestone in its Freight business today by gaining the majority share of volume in the total Dry Freight market for the first time since launching the business in 2016.

Throughout the month of May, EEX reported a 50.5% volume share of the Dry Freight market (May 19: 3.48%) in addition to a 54% share in Open Interest (May 19: 7.73%) thereby becoming the market leader as the No.1  Exchange in Dry Freight Trading worldwide.

Over those past 4 years, we have continued to demonstrate our commitment to this market by growing our business and growing liquidity. Today, that original vision has become a reality and I would like to offer my sincere thanks to everyone who believed in us, who supported us and who helped us achieve this fantastic milestone”
