Denmark is the world’s fifth largest maritime shipping nation! 11 July 2019 As gatekeeper to the Baltic Sea, Denmark’s geographic location has played a strong influential factor in the country’s development into one of the world’s leading maritime nations. Surrounded by sea, Denmark has more than 400 islands and a total coastline of over 7,000 kilometers. Therefore, maritime transport has been a vital source of income in Denmark and is continually growing hand-in-hand with increasing international trade. Danes have been active in the shipping business from the Viking era. Today almost 10% of global trade is transported by ships under Danish control. On May 30th, 2014 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark published a new special report on the Danish maritime sector called: “Focus Denmark – A new era of shipping”. The report provides an insight into the past and current state of the Danish maritime sector and...

Copenhagen-headquartered MACN, which has launched successful programmes to target corruption among port and government officials in Argentina, Nigeria and on the Suez Canal, said it would bring this experience to help India’s ports reduce corruption, with a pilot scheme in the Mumbai gateway running until October. Cecilia Müller Torbrand, MACN executive director, said: “MACN’s experience shows us that real change is possible when all parties are engaged. That’s why we are delighted to have the support of so many key stakeholders for this campaign to improve the operating environment in Indian ports.” India’s Ministry of Shipping said: “We are committed to...

The Daily Star July 01, 2019 Bengal 500 years ago Bengal economy viewed in the light of Tome Pires’ observation by Momtazur Rahman Tarafdar Momtazur Rahman Tarafdar (1928-1997) Medieval Bengali poems and foreign travellers’ accounts give us the impression that in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Bengal was prosperous–her seaborne trade and a diverse mix of her industrial products added to her prosperity. But the hypothesis has never been examined in depth. We shall examine in this paper aspects of Bengal economy, particularly Bengal’s trade and commerce, in the light of Tome Pires’ Suma Oriental. We get in this work the first comprehensive account of Asian trade, as it was, at the beginning of the sixteenth century. Tome Pires completed the Suma Oriental in Malacca between 1512 and 1515, when the Portuguese had laid the foundations of their maritime empire stretching from the east African coast to the Chinese...

Britain Seizes Iranian Tanker Bound for Syria

Britain Seizes Iranian Tanker Bound for Syria IR imaging of the Grace 1 and an approaching helicopter (MoD) By The Maritime Executive 2019-07-04 British commandos have seized an Iranian tanker carrying oil that the UK believes was intended for delivery to Syria, in violation of both the EU sanctions on Syrian imports and the U.S. sanctions on Iranian exports.  The Iranian-controlled VLCC Grace 1 departed the Persian Gulf in March, then transited around the Cape of Good Hope to the Atlantic – not through the Suez Canal (which she would be too large to pass). She then made for the Mediterranean via the Strait of Gibraltar. On Thursday morning, upon a request for assistance from the government of Gibraltar, a team of 30 Royal Marines from 42 Commando roped onto the deck of the tanker when she entered the British territory’s waters. UK foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt congratulated the...

Drewry: Container Market Disruption Seems Likely As Uncertainty Mounts July 3, 2019 The container market is confronting more than its fair share of headwinds. The recently published Container Forecaster from global shipping consultancy, Drewry, highlights concerns of a slowing global economy stoked by the ongoing US-China trade war (albeit paused for the moment), escalating geopolitical tension in many regions of the world and an industry grappling with challenging new emission regulations. Beyond these, however, a series of existential fears are also beginning to present themselves that could dent demand for shipping in the future; namely, the regionalisation of manufacturing supply chains and growing momentum behind a low carbon, an environment-first campaign that has the potential to fundamentally change global consumption habits. It is for all these reasons that Drewry has downgraded its forecast for global port throughput growth in 2019 to 3.0%, from our previous prediction of 3.9%. “We...
