July 24 (Reuters) - The Baltic Exchange's main sea freight index hit a more than one-month low on Friday, as rates dropped across all vessel segments.

* The Baltic dry index, which tracks rates for ships ferrying dry bulk commodities and reflects rates for capesize, panamax and supramax vessels, fell 71 points, or 5.1%, to 1,317, its lowest since June 17.

* The Baltic capesize index slipped 152 points, or 6.8%, to 2,084, its lowest in over a month.

* Average daily earnings for capesizes, which typically transport cargoes of 170,000 tonnes to 180,000 tonnes, including iron ore and coal, declined by $1,258 to $17,284.

* The panamax index dropped 65 points, or about 5.1%, to 1,198.

* Average daily earnings for panamaxes, which usually carry coal or grain cargoes of about 60,000 tonnes to 70,000 tonnes, dipped by $577 to $10,786.

* The supramax index was down 10 points at 915, snapping an 18-session rally. (Reporting by Diptendu Lahiri in Bengaluru; Editing by Amy Caren Daniel)
