The fourth quarter of 2012 showed a positive development in MR freight rates in the West triggered by hurricane Sandy and refinery outages on the US West Coast, which positively impacted the ton-miles factor through an increased product flow from the US Gulf and the Far East. The eastern market was positively impacted by increased naphtha and ethylene demand, distillate arbitrage to Europe and internal arbitrage in the Far East.Despite TORM's challenging financial position, TORM once again outperformed the commercial spot benchmarks by 12%, 10% and 32% for LR2, LR1 and MR, respectively. This was due to TORM's strong customer relations and the Company's scale effects.
