Minor Bulks

Chinese bauxite imports climbed to an 18-month high of 6.9 Mt in June, up by 3.4 Mt year-on-year, as shipments from Australia rose to a monthly record of 2.4 Mt, customs data show. At 32.1 Mt, the 1h17 Chinese bauxite import total fell just short of the 1h record set back in 2013 before the Indonesian export ban. June was also a strong month for nickel ore imports which increased by 0.2 Mt to the highest level since September 2016 at 3.7 Mt.
