Coca-Cola Turns to Bulkers Amid Container Shipping’s Chaos By Tappasan Phurisamrit / Shutterstock Coca-Cola Turns to Bulkers Amid Container Shipping’s Chaos Mike Schuler Total Views: 18983 October 5, 2021 Share this article The chaos in container shipping has forced some brands like Home Depot, Ikea and Costco to get creative with their supply chains. We can now add The Coca-Cola Company to the list. According to Alan Smith, a Procurement Director of Global Logistics at the beverage giant, the shortage of shipping containers and space on ships has had the company thinking outside the box (or containers) for its supply chain. In a social media post, Smith revealed the company loaded 3 bulk carriers last week with 60,000 tonnes of materials to keep productions lines running across the world. This is equivalent of 2,800 TEU that would have been shipped on containerships, Smith said. While not quite the strategy...

At the time, the ship was carrying over 1,300 containers and 1,733 tonnes of heavy fuel. What resulted became the country’s worst maritime environmental disaster which took years to clean-up. Investigators eventually found that it was the failure of the master and crew to follow proper voyage planning, navigation and watchkeeping practices, as well as the ship manager’s insufficient oversight of vessel’s safety management system, as the...

File photo editorial credit: Weiming Xie / Shutterstock.com China’s Energy Crisis Is Hitting Everything From iPhones to Milk Bloomberg Total Views: 2065 October 8, 2021 Share this article By Jeff Sutherland and Tom Hancock (Bloomberg) — The hit from China’s energy crunch is starting to ripple throughout the globe, hurting everyone from Toyota Motor Corp. to Australian sheep farmers and makers of cardboard boxes. The extreme electricity shortage caused by soaring prices of coal in the world’s largest exporter is set to hurt China’s own growth, and the knock-on impact to supply chains could crimp a global economy struggling to emerge from the pandemic. The timing couldn’t be worse, with the shipping industry already facing congested supply lines that are delaying deliveries of clothes and toys for the year-end holidays. It also comes just as...

Published Oct 3, 2021 2:54 PM by CIMSEC [By CDR Michael C. Petta] Port industry leaders recently submitted cybersecurity guidelines to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for consideration. The IMO Member States should seize this opportunity and amend the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code to enact cybersecurity standards for ports and port facilities. Specifically, IMO Member States should amend the code, using the new industry guidelines as a model, to require port facilities to conduct regular cybersecurity assessments and develop distinct cybersecurity plans. The IAPH’s Cybersecurity Guidelines for Ports and Port Facilities Earlier this month the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH), a trade association representing ports across the globe, announced the publication of cyber guidelines for ports and port facilities. With help from the World Bank, the IAPH developed these cybersecurity guidelines to mitigate, according to the publication’s executive summary, “the top risk for port authorities and the wider port...

Human Rights at Sea World Maritime Day 2021: Bitter-Sweet and still failing to effectively tackle Impunity and Abuse at Sea 30th September 2021 OPINION 30 September 2021 London. UK. World Maritime Day is celebrated annually on 30 September with a new theme. This year it is framed as “Seafarers: at the core of shipping’s future” which seems ironic that something so obvious (workers enabling businesses to operate) is being so positioned and promoted in 2021. The truth is that it has taken a global pandemic to refocus the shipping sector’s attention on the real critical vulnerability of the assessed $17 Trillion supply chain: the seafarer, along with the protection of their fundamental human and labour rights. The truth is that even without the 2020 pandemic, seafarers and their families would still be suffering. It has taken the UN Secretary General to declare a ‘humanitarian crisis at sea’ before we...

Photo: Courtesy In 2001, a ship named Southern Queen caught fire at Chattogram port’s Jetty no 1.  In a bid to save the vessel, and also to stop the fuel from burning, the port authority sank it deliberately by pumping water into it.  By the following morning, nothing but the masts of the vessel were visible. The entire ship was underwater.  Golam Sarwar, an ex-mariner, was painfully watching the debacle. Sarwar had left his marine life only a few years back to start a ship repair company called ‘Prantik’.  As a sailor himself, he does not like to see ships sink. “A thought crossed...

THERE IS NO END TO LEARNING

THERE IS NO END TO LEARNING

posted on: Sep 28, 2021

THERE IS NO END TO LEARNING by F R Chowdhury    29 September 2021 The process of learning starts soon after we are born. We keep looking at everything surrounding us. First we recognize the faces of our parents and then we start recognizing the faces of others in close proximity. We keep listening to the surrounding and that is why we first learn to speak in our own mother tongue. Primary school education consists of most essential knowledge without which it is almost impossible to survive in today’s world. Then we go to secondary and high school. It is after H.Sc. that we decide our chosen field of further studies – medicine, engineering, accountancy, law or defence services etc. etc. One more has been added to this long list – and that is a career in the merchant marine. In the colonial days ocean going ships engaged in international...
