Vessel operating costs are expected to rise by almost three per cent in both 2014 and 2015, according to a new survey by international accountant and shipping consultant Moore Stephens.

The survey is based on responses from key players in the international shipping industry, predominantly shipowners and managers in Europe and Asia. Those responses revealed that vessel operating costs are expected to increase by 2.9 per cent in both 2014 and 2015, with crew wages and repairs & maintenance the cost categories likely to increase most significantly.

Crew wages are expected to increase by 2.4 per cent in 2014 and by 2.6 per cent in 2015, with other crew costs thought likely to go up by 1.9 per cent and 2.1 per cent respectively for the years under review. The cost of repairs & maintenance, meanwhile, is expected to escalate by 2.3 per cent in 2014 and by 2.4 per cent in 2015
