Charters

The TEU weighted average remaining term of our charters at September 30, 2017 was 3.3 years, taking into account the new charter for the GSL Tianjin which commenced with CMA CGM immediately upon its redelivery on October 25, 2017. Contracted revenue as of September 30, 2017, was approximately $518 million.

Our objective is to maintain a staggered expiration of our time charters in order to reduce re-chartering risk and maintain stable and predictable revenue.

Our time charter portfolio is shown below.
