Moller – Maersk, owner of the world’s number one ocean carrier, has kicked off its new air freight service with a chartered airplane from Thailand to Japan.

Maersk said the milestone flight moved cargoes for a leading tire manufacturer from Thailand to Japan on October 11.

The facility is operated by a joint venture by Venezuela state oil company PDVSA and Italy’s Eni, which have been...

Trade Imbalance Hits American Crop Exports With Lack of Containers October 15, 2020 by Bloomberg Photo: MOLPIX / Shutterstock By Michael Hirtzer (Bloomberg) — With the U.S. importing more goods than it’s exporting, shipments of American cotton, grain and hay are getting squeezed due to limited availably of shipping containers. Peter Friedmann, executive director of the Agriculture Transportation Coalition, warned that customers in Asia will avoid U.S. supplies if container shipments from competitors in Australia or South America are cheaper. “If we can’t deliver affordably, dependably, then our foreign customers will go somewhere else,” Friedmann said in a webinar Wednesday hosted by the Port of Los Angeles, the U.S.’s largest such facility for containers. Containers come to the U.S. carrying goods such as TVs and shoes generally are either shipped back to Asia empty or filled with grain or other raw materials. Shippers in Asia sometimes would rather have a container...

Bangladesh to increase spot LNG imports to meet rising demand Prothom Alo    17 2020ReutersDhaka    A LNG tankerReuters file photo Bangladesh is expected to double its imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the spot market starting in December as demand rises and to capitalise on low prices of the super-chilled fuel, two energy officials told Reuters. Bangladesh’s state-run Rupantarita Prakritik Gas Company is seeking 138,000 cubic metres of so-called lean LNG, which has a lower energy content, for 9-10 December delivery, said the two officials, one from Rupantarita and one from Petrobangla, the state-owned company that is in charge of LNG imports into the South Asian country.Rupantarita, a subsidiary of Petrobangla, may issue a second tender next week for a similar volume of lean LNG for end-December delivery, the two officials said.

Philippines Probes Ship Virus Outbreaks to Avoid Ban on Mariners Claire JiaoBloomberg October 16, 2020 (Bloomberg) — The Philippines is investigating Covid-19 outbreaks on ships that changed crews in Manila in a bid to avoid a ban on Filipino seafarers. Stricter protocols in crew-change hubs may be put in place, depending on the probe’s results, Transportation Assistant Secretary Narciso Vingson Jr. said in a statement Friday. The investigation comes after infections were recorded among crew of Australia-bound bulk carriers Vega Dream and the Patricia Oldendorff, raising possibility of a ban on seafarers from the Philippines, which supplies a quarter of the world’s merchant marine workforce. Vingson said the infections may have occurred before the government standardized testing in a new facility it opened in Manila’s port last month for arriving and departing Filipino seafarers. Prior, manning agencies were “operating on their own and may be lacking in monitoring,” he...

REUTERS/Stringer By Bloomberg News (Bloomberg) — China is cementing its status as the world’s dominant trading nation, confounding warnings that a once in a century pandemic combined with simmering tensions with the U.S. would derail that status. Surging global demand for everything from hazmat suits to work-from-home technology has allowed China, which contained the virus months ago, to capture record market share of global exports by quickly reopening its factories while the rest of the world grappled with lockdowns. It’s a striking reversal from the first two months of the year when China’s exports contracted by 17.1%. It’s also an outcome that underscores the nation’s enduring role in manufacturing even amid simmering tensions with the U.S. that...

Demolition Market Activity Could Tumble on Improving Freight Rate Market Conditions in Hellenic Shipping News 14/10/2020 Plenty of ships were sold for scrap over the past week, however, as rates for both the dry bulk and the container markets soared, demolition candidates are bound to diminish in numbers. In its latest weekly report, shipbroker Clarkson Platou Hellas said that “with the Golden Week holiday period taking place this week, it has felt like the market has stalled for the time being with very little activity taking place. This, coupled with the ever developing Covid-19 situation, working environments are far from normal with the ongoing disruption continuing leading to a distinct lack of market discussion amongst stakeholders in the industry. When will we ever return to normality? Source: Clarkson PLC According to Clarkson Platou Hellas, “many have now come to the realisation that there are very few ships in the...
