Idle Containership Fleet Falls Below 100 as Demand for Tonnage Remains Tight January 18, 2018 by The Loadstar Photo: By Igor Grochev / Shutterstock By Mike Wackett (The Loadstar) – The number of containerships in lay-up has dipped below 100, according to Alphaliner. Its latest survey reveals strong demand and tightening availability of tonnage which is putting the brakes on vessel scrapping. As at 8 January, there were 99 vessels, equating to 377,784 teu, anchored in hot or cold lay-up. This compares with 351 ships for 950,000 teu a year ago. At 1.8% of the global cellular fleet, idled container tonnage is at its lowest level since mid-2015. “The availability of tonnage is tightening for all sectors below 6,000 teu, and this has been reflected in strengthening charter rates,” said the consultant. In particular it noted that there had been a “remarkable change in fortunes” for the panamax sector, with only...

Belt and Road: A New Era for Ports

Belt and Road: A New Era for Ports

posted on: Jan 19, 2018

Belt and Road: A New Era for Ports By Ton van den Bosch As one of the engines of the global economy, the ports sector is acutely tuned to wider political, social and economic trends. Fortunes can rise and fall depending on geopolitical imperatives, demographic shifts, technological innovation and the natural environment. In this way, the global ports sector is a useful barometer for change – and 2018 promises to be another impactful year in a succession of years marked by upheaval. It is, perhaps, easy to take a Western-centric view of the ports sector. But the most interesting and impactful changes aren’t taking place in the West. Instead, these changes are taking place in emerging markets across the globe. This reflects the reorientation of global trade towards the east and China’s Belt and Road initiative and is creating opportunities and challenges for companies up and down the supply...

CPA chief goes on official overseas tour days before transfer January 18, 2018 | Filed under: Business News,Economy | Posted by: The Bangladesh Chronicle Edit This Post Outgoing CPA Chairman Rear Admiral M Khaled Iqbal Dhaka Tribune Criticism has also been hurled at the ports in South Africa and Morocco that are being visited. Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) Chairman Rear Admiral M Khaled Iqbal on Sunday embarked on an overseas tour for gaining experience on port operations. It is entirely normal behaviour from the head of an authoritarian body to visit similar facilities in other countries to use the experience in order to benefit their own facilities. But Rear Admiral Iqbal’s eight-day tour is being heavily criticized because he was issued a transfer order two weeks ago, and his successor will assume office after January 30. The government issued a circular on January 2, appointing Julfiquer Aziz as the new CPA chairman. Rear Admiral Iqbal...
