The Daily Star October 06, 2020 Bangladesh can easily retain $1 billion out of the $7 billion of freight spent to bring import cargoes, says Akij Group’s MD Akij operates 10 seagoing ships that carry coal, iron ore, clinker, wheat, fertiliser and other mineral cargoes from one international port to another. Photo: CollectedSohel Parvez Local oceangoing vessels that carry bulk shipments from one continent to another have recovered from the Covid-19 fallouts as the operators are getting good business thanks to the increased demand from China, according to a leading operator of seagoing ships. “There is a huge movement of bulk cargo towards China.

This oxygen-depleted zone, called hypoxia, is the third largest Oxygen Minimum Zone (OMZ) in the world after the OMZs in Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean and the Arabian Sea. Compared to the neighboring Arabian Sea, the Bay of Bengal OMZ is somewhat different in nature. It shows a trace of oxygen at 70m depth and below, ranging from .032-.064 mg/l, which is below the standard Oxygen level (5 mg/l) needed to support aquatic life. On the other hand, the Arabian Sea has no...

Importance of the South China Sea for the US and China and their Growing Tensions by Irfan Ali     30 September 2020 The South China Sea (SCS) has great strategic and economic significance in the contemporary international politico-security environment. At the economic front, it is estimated that an annual global trade of $5.3 trillion passes through the SCS. Besides, more than half of the world’s fishing vessels pass through the SCS. This implies that millions of people are dependent on the SCS when it comes to their food and livelihoods. Along with this, the SCS is also rich in natural resources; for instance, a large amount of oil and natural gas reserves have been discovered so far. It is further believed that yet it contains a huge reserve beneath its seabed. The strategic and economic importance of SCS is one of the major reasons for growing Sino-US tensions over...

Chinese Search for Missing Livestock Carrier Ends File image Responding to the anguish of the families of the missing seafarers from the Gulf Livestock 1, the government of the Philippines announced earlier in the week that it had requested the assistance of additional neighboring countries for a further search for the lost vessel. The families of the sailors had repeatedly asked for a search of additional areas, including smaller deserted islands in the East China Sea near where the vessel is believed to have sunk during a typhoon at the beginning of the month. CNN reported that the search was going to be undertaken by China, South Korea, and Taiwan. The Japan Coast Guard had initially undertaken a search and rescue mission in the area after the vessel reportedly capsized and sunk early on the morning of September 2. JCG conducted searches until sunset on September 10, when after...

How IMO 2020 turned into the Y2K of ocean shipping in International Shipping News 29/09/2020 FreightWaves to shipping analyst: “So, we’re doing a follow-up story about IMO 2020 and scrubbers …” Shipping analyst to FreightWaves: “Oh, Jesus.” IMO 2020 is the Y2K of ocean shipping. After years of dire warnings on fallout to world trade — and dubious pitches on stocks poised to profit — the IMO 2020 regulation ended up being a damp squib. What went so wrong with all the forecasts? And is this story really over for vessel owners, cargo shippers and stock investors? The short answers are “coronavirus” and “not yet.” For the longer answers, FreightWaves analyzed scrubber-installation data from Clarksons Research and conducted an in-depth interview with Richard Joswick, head of oil pricing, refining and trade flow analytics at S&P Global Platts. What was supposed to happen On Jan. 1, the IMO 2020 rule...

KINGSTON (IDN) – In his address to the United Nations Economic and Social Council in July 2020, reflecting on what kind of UN we need at the 75th anniversary, the Secretary-General of the UN called for strengthened and renewed multilateralism, geared towards the overarching goals of peace and security, human rights, and sustainable development. One of the greatest and most enduring successes of the UN is the establishment of the legal regime for the ocean that is reflected in the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which has rightly been described as the constitution for the oceans. As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the UN...

UN pushes for immediate recognition of seafarers as key workers The United Nations (UN) has piled the pressure on governments, particularly those signed up to the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC), to immediately recognise seafarers as keyworkers to resolve the coronavirus crew change crisis and enable safe maritime navigation. The recognition is needed to ‘avert a humanitarian disaster that will also affect the safety of shipping, the protection of the marine environment, the continuation of efficient trade and the recovery of the world economy,’ a joint statement of UN agencies said. It was signed by leaders of the UN labour, human rights, agriculture and trade, aviation and maritime entities, including the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The rights of seafarers, as enshrined in the MLC, have ‘not been fully respected by all governments, notably their rights to shore leave, annual leave, a maximum period of service onboard (11 months), repatriation, and...

UN and partners press for seafarers to be designated ‘key workers’ during COVID pandemic in International Shipping News 28/09/2020 The UN Secretary-General has again appealed for governments to act on behalf of hundreds of thousands of seafarers and other maritime workers stuck at sea for endless months, in some cases more than a year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. António Guterres on Thursday pressed authorities to formally designate these personnel as “key workers” to facilitate safe crew changes, allowing fatigued seafarers to be repatriated and replaced by colleagues who are awaiting deployment. “Despite the unprecedented conditions brought about by the pandemic, seafarers have continued to tirelessly support the often invisible global logistics chain”, the UN chief said, in his message for World Maritime Day, observed annually on 24 September. This year, the focus is on ‘Sustainable Shipping for a Sustainable Planet’ which underlines how the industry will play a...
