Imagine a world if you can | ITF Global The life of a seafarer: the “invisible” workforce that keeps world trade moving. Ninety per cent of the world’s goods are transported by sea. On any given day, there are more than 1.6 million seafarers working onboard 70,000 vessels worldwide. These men and women are transporting cargo and goods essential to businesses and people’s everyday lives that will sustain communities through the coronavirus pandemic. Ships transport goods to the east, to the west, to the north and to the south – everything from food and household goods to raw material like oil, iron and ore, through to industrial goods like hospital equipment and ventilators. For a few minutes, we want you to consider the life and welfare of the workers, the seafarers onboard these vessels, who are far from home but on the front line of this global emergency. Imagine...

Container Carriers Brace for Coronavirus Hit to Trade March 20, 2020 by Reuters Photo: By donvictorio / Shutterstock By Vera Eckert and Stine Jacobsen FRANKFURT/COPENHAGEN, March 20 (Reuters) – Leading container shipping firm A.P. Moller-Maersk scrapped its 2020 earnings forecast on Friday, while rival Hapag-Lloyd warned of slowing growth until at least June, as the coronavirus pandemic takes a heavy toll on global trade. The container shipping industry, a bellwether for international trade, has been blown off course by the new virus, which brought parts of China to a standstill before spreading around the world, leading container lines to re-route cargoes and reduce calls to Chinese ports. Despite lower volume growth, Maersk still expects to make higher first-quarter earnings than a year ago thanks to savings and steps to offset the higher cost of low-sulfur fuel, it said, sending its battered shares more than 7% higher by 1045 GMT. However, the Danish company,...

MD KajolBy Bangladesh correspondent 13/03/2020 Chittagong depots won’t handle boxes from non-payers Maersk and OOCL Loadstar 16 March 2020 The off-docks at Chittagong have stopped handling the containers of Maersk Line, OOCL and Gold Star Line, as part of a dispute over fees. Since Wednesday morning, the depots have provided no service to these shipping lines, which have a 20%-25% market share in transporting export cargo. In January, the depots raised fees by nearly 22%, a rise the shipping lines did not accept and they have paid no bills since then, according to the Bangladesh Inland Container Depots Association (BICDA). “They owe over $2.5m to the 18 off-docks,” BICDA secretary Ruhul Amin Sikder, told The Loadstar. “Moreover, they are not accepting our bills. How we can provide services to them?” He added: “We will resume services for them only after they make the payment.” Mr Sikder said South Korean Hanjin Shipping, declared bankrupt...

Two additional workers were being tested at Linge, spokesman Morten Eek said on Wednesday. Several others are undergoing tests at the Oseberg field...
