De megacontainerschepen hebben veel producten door hun lagere eindprijs toegankelijker gemaakt voor mensen over de hele wereld. Ik denk zelfs dat ze de beschaving hebben veranderd.

Toch blijft het mij helemaal onduidelijk hoe het mogelijk is dat je hier in Brasília gewone etensborden koopt, helemaal wit, zonder enige franje er op, die goedkoper zijn dan Braziliaanse borden. Het gaat om breekbare Chinese borden, die toch voor een loodzware container zullen zorgen. Nadat ze in de haven van Santos zijn aangekomen moeten ze dan nog ongeveer 2000 km over land reizen om hier te komen.

Ik kan me nauwelijks voorstellen dat de Chinezen met etensborden aan dumping zouden willen doen.

Ook bv. hangsloten van Chinese makelijk zijn hier voor een prikje te krijgen..

Als je heel veel tegelijk transporteert dan kost het per product maar weinig. Bloemen uit Afrika per vliegtuig. Een enorm vliegtuig vol met bloemen kost een klein vermogen maar per steel is het maar weinig. Een gek voorbeeld. Boerenkool komt uit Portugal met een vrachtwagen. Je zult denken dat die kool onbetaalbaar wordt, integendeel. Ga eens kijken bij Ikea. Waar komen hun spullen vandaan? Uit de hele wereld, daar waar het het goedkoopst gemaakt kan worden. Die paar centen voor het transport is peanuts. Hoeveel borden gaan er in een container? Alleen als je zelf een klein dingetje moet versturen, dan wordt het opeens hartstikke duur.

De wereld is gek geworden:
Op dit moment is het tarief Azie-West Europa 425 dollar per teu dus een 40 ft container met 25 ton kost omgerekend eur 760,--
oftewel 0,03 eur per kg

Luchtvracht bloemen / groente ex Afrika Usd 32000 voor een 747 met rond 100 ton lading dus rond de 0,28 eur cent per kg voor een afstand van 6600 km !!

Voor export ex Europa naar Azie kan je al wegkomen voor eur 1,60 per kg, rockbottom kleine zendingen dus bied jezelf aan als vracht ben je voor 130 eur in China

als ik met een trekker oplegger van Aalsmeer naar Frankfurt moet ( 420 km ) kost dat voor 20 ton rond de 750 eur oftewel eur 0,03.7 per kg
En voor dit tarief vreet je nog net geen droog brood

Dus voor transport over 420 km betaal je meer dan als het 3/4 van de wereld over moet

En om het vergelijk kompleet te maken:

Een overtocht over de Noordzee b.v. Hoek van Holland / Harwich voor een trekker oplegger ( met chauffeur ) kost one way rond de 700 eur voor 6 uurtjes varen
Dover / Calais of Duinkerken doet zo rond de 220 eur voor 1 3/4 uur varen !
met dezelfde 25 ton lading, Ik denk dat die jongens van Stena / DFDS / P&O het nog niet zo slecht bekeken hebben, en die schuiten zitten bijna altijd VOL

Future of container alliances up in the air as CMA CGM and China Cosco Shipping plot new partnership

French container analysts Alphaliner report the Ocean 3 alliance is likely to be ripped apart.
CMA CGM is in discussions with the merged Cosco/China Shipping entity to form an alliance that could also include OOCL and Evergreen.
The new alliance would leave Middle Eastern boxline UASC out in the cold.

With CMA CGM likely taking soon-to-be acquired APL to the new alliance, the G6 alliance, where OOCL is currently,
would also be decimated. Cosco and Evergreen departing the CKYHE alliance would also put that container partnership under severe pressure,
leading some to speculate that its remnants, K Line, Yang Ming and Hanjin could seek an alliance with the rump of the G6 next year.

No carrier contacted by Splash responded to the alliance speculation apart from OOCL. The Hong Kong liner said in a statement last week:
“While there has been rumor and speculations in the news about the future alliance landscape and on individual carrier activities,
we are in no position to comment on them. As announced in a G6 Alliance press release dated December 11, 2015,
the current service structure of the G6 Alliance will remain stable and expect to operate as aligned through 2016.”

“If successful, the initiative would radically alter the current liner shipping landscape and leave the eight remaining carriers of the Ocean Three,
CKYHE and G6 alliances in the lurch,” Alphaliner commented in its weekly report.

CMA CGM’s Rodolphe Saadé confirms new alliance discussions

Rodolphe Saadé, vice chairman of CMA CGM, has confirmed the giant French line is holding discussions about creating a new container alliance,
something that would torpedo the Ocean Three alliance as well as sending major ripples across all the other existing alliances.

Speaking with the Wall Street Journal, Saadé, son of the line’s chairman, said:
“We are becoming a larger shipping line and we are in the position to select the partners with whom we want to do business.”

The Ocean Three alliance agreement between CMA CGM, UASC and China runs for two years, ending at the end of 2016, Saadé said.
“There are many rumours in the market about who we are talking to,” he said. “In our industry everybody talks to everybody.”

CMA CGM has been linked with a new Greater Chinese alliance with newly merged China Cosco Shipping Corp,
OOCL and Evergreen, although none of these potential partners have confirmed the possibility when contacted by Splash this month.

DP World signs contracts for huge fourth terminal at Jebel Ali

DP World signed on Tuesday (Feb 23) two major construction contracts for its US$1.6 billion futuristic fourth terminal at Jebel Ali port.
The Dubai company, which is one of the largest ports operators in the world,
awarded the contracts to Dutco Balfour Beatty and BAM International Abu ­Dhabi for the new terminal that will be built on a reclaimed island north of terminal 2.
Under the terms of the deals, Dutco Balfour Beatty will build the terminal’s main operation yard including a 1,200-metre long
quay designed to accommodate the largest mega container vessels.

Meanwhile BAM will build a 400-metre bridge as well as a 2.2-kilometre, 18-metre deep quay wall.
And the engineering company CH2M Hill (Halcrow) will deliver the civil works on the reclaimed island.
The first phase is expected to be ready by 2018.
DP World did not reveal the ­value of the construction contracts it had awarded.

“This terminal is the big idea that will change the way ports work in the future.
We will deploy the latest technology in equipping our quays and yards, and run them with the most soph­isticated terminal operation systems
,” said Sultan bin Sulayem, the DP World chairman and chief executive.

“We have a long track record of investing proactively to expand capacity at our operations to meet changing customer needs.
We are building terminal 4 from the ground up, which enables us to future-proof it for smart container ships emerging in the future.”

By next year, DP World said the new terminal would include 13 of the world’s largest and most modern giant quay cranes, operated
by remote control and another 35 smaller gantry cranes.

According to DP World, the first phase of construction alone would enable terminal 4 to handle 3.1 million giant shipping containers
or TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units), taking Jebel Ali Port’s total capacity to 22.1 million TEU by 2018.

By that time DP World predicted that Jebel Ali would be equipped with at least 110 cranes with a total quay length of about 11,000 metres.

A second phase of expansion, set for an unspecified future date,
will involve Dutco Balfour Beatty building an additional operation yard with a 1,000-metre long quay at the terminal.

When that is finally completed – something DP World said would only go ahead “in line with market demand”
– terminal 4 would be able to handle a total of 7.8 million TEU.

The decision to press ahead with construction at terminal 4 comes despite the fact that this month DP World
reported a fall in volumes at its UAE facilities during the fourth quarter of 2015.

Consolidated volumes at the company’s UAE facilities, dominated by Jebel Ali Port,
fell 2.9 per cent year-on-year to 3.7 million twenty foot equivalent units (TEUs) in the three months to the end of December.

St Petersburg's new port aims to be top Russian cargo hub

Saint Petersburg's new deepwater port aims to become Russia's major hub for cargo and container shipping,
despite an industry slump and the impact of Western sanctions on the country, officials involved said on Wednesday.
Russia's economy has been hit by falling oil prices and Western sanctions, which have also battered the rouble.

Port Bronka, which is located in the Gulf of Finland, has been developed to boost trade and also be able to take bigger ships
than Saint Petersburg's historical port, which is located closer to the main city.
stp.jpg
stp.jpg (183.12 KiB) 2267 keer bekeken

"In the long-term we are very positive about the Russian market," said Stefan Wilkens, general manager of Bronka's container terminal.
"Russia still has a low containerisation level," he told a news conference in London.

At 28 TEUs (20 foot equivalent units) per capita, Russia is among the lowest users of containerized trade,
Wilkens said, adding this compared data showing 97 TEUs per capita globally and 122 TEUs in Europe.

The global container market, which ships retail goods from iPhones to designer clothes and food products,
has been hit by a slowdown in demand for goods from Asia.
Cargo shipping - including industrial goods such as coal - is also reeling from softer Chinese imports and too many ships available for hire.

The world's number three line, France's CMA CGM, became the first international group to start calls to Bronka
in January and officials said more firms were expected to follow.

Port officials said Bronka represented the "fastest way" to reach Moscow and consumer markets there, with better road connections.
They said the first direct cargoes to be sent by rail from the port to Moscow were set to go live in March.

Dmitry Mikhalchenko, chief executive of Fenix LLC, Bronka port's owner and operator,
acknowledged sanctions on Russia "are not having a positive impact".

Alexey Shukletsov, Fenix's executive director, told the conference Bronka, which cost over $400 million to develop and also includes cargo ship facilities,
was targeting 80 million tonnes of volume and 1.5 million TEUs annually in the future,
with initial trade pegged at 3.8 million tonnes and 350,000 TEUs annually.

Shukletsov said it hoped to benefit from CMA CGM's preliminary agreement last month with Iran's top container
and cargo line IRISL, which could also potentially boost trade flows with Bronka.

Mega-ships bring mega-risks, former ship captains tell TPM

Shipping lines may appreciate cost savings from so-called mega-ships, but for those who sail them, bigger ships can mean bigger risks.
“With a 19,000-TEU vessel, we’re looking at a potential $1 billion loss, if a ship is lost 80 percent laden,” Captain Andrew Kinsey, senior marine risk consultant, Allianz Global Corporate & Speciality and a former ship’s master, said Tuesday at the 16th annual TPM Conference.
That $1 billion loss would far outstrip the $300 million to $400 million in claims that followed the sinking of the 8,000-twenty-foot-equivalent container ship MOL Comfort in 2013.
co1.jpg
co1.jpg (89.99 KiB) 2113 keer bekeken
“We’d have to rewrite the law of general average” if one of the new mega-ships was lost, Kinsey said, referring to rules that determine how cargo losses are divided among claimants.
Captain Michael Lloyd, a retired British naval and merchant ship commander, said the length and size of the newest container ships, combined with rougher weather at sea, makes catastrophic accidents such as the loss of the MOL Comfort in 2013 increasingly likely.

“We’ve never before had ships just snapping in half, but as the weather deteriorates, we’re going to see more of it,” Lloyd said during a panel discussion on mega-vessels and risk. Lloyd, who spent more than 50 years at sea and commanded containerships for 10 years, referred to predictions of increased hurricanes and storms caused by global climate change.

He also said wave action puts more stress on longer ships, especially around the midsection. “One of the big problems now is poor build quality and bad design,” Lloyd said. Faulty welds lead to cracking that is exacerbated, he said, as longer ships “bend” in waves.

Lloyd and Kinsey offered a seaman’s view of the problems associated with larger ships just as those ships begin calling on U.S. ports, putting greater strain on landside operations. The 18,000-TEU CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin became the largest container ship to call in the U.S. when it docked in Los Angeles late last year. The French ship is 1,310 feet long.

co2.jpg (148.42 KiB) 2113 keer bekeken
Image: CMA CGM
The U.S. West Coast is preparing for regular calls by some of the largest container ships in service globally. Container ship lines have invested heavily in “ultra-long container vessels” or ULCVs with capacities of up to 20,000 TEUs, pursuing economies of scale.

But mega-ships aren’t stemming shipping industry losses, forecast to be as high as $5 billion this year. Low oil prices and slow demand growth make it unlikely the larger ships will pay for themselves anytime soon, Rolf Habben Jansen, Hapag-Lloyd CEO, said at TPM.

Kinsey and Lloyd took the discussion of mega-ships past productivity and profits to safety and protection of lives at sea. Seafaring remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, Lloyd said. “We lose about 2,500 seamen a year. It’s more dangerous than mining.”

Finding crew and officers is increasingly difficult, he said. “A container ship is not a popular ship to sail on,” Lloyd said. “It rattles, it rolls, and it is totally and utterly monotonous.” In the U.S., many ports that worry about unloading containers won’t allow seamen to leave ships, he said.

Both former captains urged enforcement of the new container weight provisions of the Safety of Life at Sea convention, by far the most controversial topic at the conference. Those provisions would make shippers responsible for providing verified container weights to carriers.

“Make sure it’s implemented, because it’s critical to the safety of the vessel,” Kinsey said. “If we start putting containers on that are heavier than declared, our stability calculations are useless and we do not know the stresses that are going on that ship,” said Lloyd.

“As the (ship’s) master, I had to do a deadweight survey (of the vessel) and compare it to the manifest, and they never matched up,” Kinsey said. “When you’re dealing with a 3,000-TEU vessel that’s one thing, but if you’re dealing with an 18,000-TEU vessel, it’s a no-win scenario.”

Just as critical but not addressed by SOLAS is ensuring containers actually contain what shipping documents say they carry. Lloyd once had a ship’s hold fill with hazardous fumes after a container carrying undeclared hazardous materials leaked while at sea.
co3.jpg
co3.jpg (80.74 KiB) 2113 keer bekeken
Kinsey and Lloyd had some advice for shippers, in addition to accurately declaring weights and cargo. “Know where your cargo is, and know who’s carrying it,” Kinsey said. “If it’s critical cargo, don’t put it all on one vessel. Look at options and break the shipment it up.”

He urged cooperation among maritime stakeholders on shipping issues that ultimately affect seafarers’ safety at sea.

“We traditionally have been an industry that learns from our mistakes,” Kinsey said. “We need to be more proactive and address these issues before they happen.”

CMA CGM deploys its flagship fleet between Asia and the U.S. West coast

The six 18,000 TEU vessels named after the Great Explorers will be deployed on the trans-Pacific market, the most dynamic one, to accelerate its growth.
The CMA CGM Group has announced that it will deploy starting end of May its flagship fleet of six 18,000 TEU vessels between Asia and the West coast of the U.S.'
cma.jpg
cma.jpg (70.47 KiB) 2035 keer bekeken
This decision is in line with both the growth strategy set by the Group in the United States and around the world and the optimization of its fleet.

The flagship fleet of the Group will hence be deployed on the most active and dynamic market to date - the trans-Pacific market - and will support its development as well as that of its customers.

In total, 6 ships of 18,000 TEUS will join the Pearl River Express service; a series of 6 ships bearing the names of great explorers: CMA CGM Bougainville, CMA CGM Kerguelen, CMA CGM Georg Forster, CMA CGM Vasco de Gama, CMA CGM Zheng He and CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin.
The CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin became the largest ship ever to call in the United States last December and was inaugurated on February 19 in Long Beach, in the presence of Jacques Saadé, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CMA CGM, 450 customers, eminent persons from the economic and political spheres and institutional figures.

The CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin will remain on the trans-Pacific market. The other 5* 18,000 TEU vessels will join her on the Pearl River Express line.
These ships are among the largest in the world. They are equipped with the latest environmental technology and they will significantly reduce CMA CGM's carbon footprint.

Maersk Returns to Liverpool

With the new service Maersk returns to Liverpool after more than a decade and launches its first ever direct service to Dublin.
Providing a direct service between the British Isles and Algeciras to connect to the whole of Mediterranean and North Africa, the newly announced Irish Sea product into Liverpool and Dublin compliments the existing network and offers improved transportation solutions for serving local markets.

Operated by Seago Line, the Intra-European shipping expert and part of the Maersk Group, the new service further allows easier access to other trades and helps sister companies Maersk Line and Safmarine deliver for their customers in the North West of England and Ireland. Most notably, the new short sea service creates a great opportunity for a West Africa product offering with a new transshipment option to connect both markets to Nigeria.

“We are thrilled to offer a new service and expand our product portfolio for both countries”, shares Seago Line General Manager for UK & Ireland Robert Clegg. “With competitive transit times and convenient berthing windows, we are well-placed to serve customers who seek new opportunities through this Mediterranean connection. Furthermore, our customers located in the Liverpool hinterland can now access South European and North African markets with Seago Line as a complimentary addition to our existing offer, while for Irish cargo this becomes an attractive alternative to the current feeder option via Rotterdam.”

With the introduction of Seago Line’s Irish Sea service, Maersk Group returns to Liverpool with a direct product after a 10 year absence. At the same time, it will be Maersk Group’s first ever direct connection to the Irish capital, supplementing the existing Latin American service to Cork operated by Maersk Line. Brian Godsafe, Managing Director at Maersk Line UK & Ireland comments:

“This service is a positive addition to our current portfolio. The Irish Sea feeder offers flexibility to customers in and around the Liverpool area. It is also a major change for our Irish customers, who will now receive a faster and direct product to better serve their import and export needs.”

The new service will offer 6 days transit time between Algeciras and Liverpool and 7 days between Algeciras and Dublin. The first call to Liverpool is planned on April 13th and to Dublin on April 14th.

Drewry study warns of diminishing economies from megaships

Global shipping consultancy, Drewry, has carried out a simulation study of the operational and financial impacts on lines, terminal operators, ports and other supply chain stakeholders as vessel size increases up to and beyond 18,000 teu (twenty-foot equivalent units, the standard metric used to measure a ship’s cargo carrying capacity). The study results suggest that the economies of scale, that have been a key feature of the liner industry, may be running out.
mmc.jpg

Triple E class Container ship Maersk McKinney Image: Maersk Line
Since 2009, leading container shipping lines have engaged in a new-build ‘arms race’ with vessel sizes increasing at breakneck pace to drive down unit costs and improve profitability. This race-to-scale is set to continue with a further 53 megaships expected to enter service in 2016. While bigger ships help carriers reduce voyage costs, these savings are increasingly offset by higher port and landside costs meaning that total system cost savings are small and declining.

Larger vessels place greater demands on ports, where channels have to cater for deeper draughts and on terminals, which need to upgrade equipment, yard facilities and manning levels to effectively handle increased peak cargo volumes. On a total ‘system cost’ basis the study found that the upsizing of vessels provides only modest savings for the overall supply chain with efficiency gains being further eroded as vessels size increases beyond 18,000 teu.
Drewry expects that even with no further increase in maximum vessel size, the sheer number of mega vessels expected to be delivered in 2016 will strain terminal resources, as the average size of ships increase the amount of cargo that has to be handled at times of peak container activity.
Key findings from the Drewry study:
Combined shipping line and port ‘total system’ cost savings peak at only 5% of total network costs and economies of scale diminish as vessel sizes rise beyond 18,000 teu
Terminals will incur significant capital expenditure to handle larger vessel sizes and terminal yard areas will need to increase by one third to avoid congestion, even with no growth in volume
Scale economies from megaships only work for the total supply chain if terminals can increase productivity in line with increases in vessel size
Continued vessel upsizing risks, leading to:
– No significant cost benefit, lower service frequency and/or less choice for shippers;
– Higher supply chain risks as volumes are concentrated in fewer vessels;
– Environmental effects arising from dredging deeper channels and expanding yard area;

“As more megaships enter service the industry is rapidly approaching a critical stage,” said Tim Power, managing director of Drewry.

“To ensure the economics of vessel upsizing continue to benefit the entire supply chain, lines and ports need to work in a more coordinated manner if further productivity improvements from the transport system are to be realised. Addressing the operational and cost effects at port facilities caused by the challenging load and discharge patterns of these larger ships requires a cross-industry effort. All stakeholders in the supply chain must recognise the need for dialogue and collaboration if the maritime transport system as a whole is to benefit. If these benefits cannot be delivered and economies of scale in this industry really are running out, the implications are profound.”

There is a wider possible implication of these findings for the industry: if economies of scale in liner shipping have finally run their course, future vessel ordering will no longer be driven by the need to secure economies of scale but will instead be based on lines’ assessment of future demand growth.

“When this happens, the tendency to structural overcapacity that has plagued the industry will be much reduced,” added Power. “If this were combined with a process of continuing industry consolidation, liner shipping might at last be in a position to generate sustainable profitability.”

Hanjin Shipping to remove two 13,000 teu boxships from Asia-Europe lane

South Korea's Hanjin Shipping announced on Thursday (Mar 17) that it will remove two 13,000 teu containerships on its Asia to North Europe lane starting April, as part of efforts to cut operation cost.
The restructured NE6 (Asia-North Europe 6) service will have nine 13,000 teu boxships instead of the current 11, and port calls will be rearranged to allow shorter transit time, save operation cost and enhance efficiency. The changes will kick in on 3 April.

It will also allow even faster cargo transhipment to West and North Africa through Algeciras as well as shorter transit time from northern Europe to Asia,” Hanjin Shipping commented.

The NE6 port rotation is Busan, Shanghai, Yantian, Singapore, Algeciras, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Algeciras, Singapore, Yantian and back to Busan.
In addition, its jointly-run PM1 (Pacific-Med Pendulum 1) will be replaced by the shipowner's new HPM (Hanjin Pacific Mediterranean Pendulum) service to connect the US West Coast, Asia and Mediterranean.

This HPM route will be served fifteen 10,000 teu containerships and the service will commence on 6 April.
“As such, Hanjin Shipping intends to improve business profitability by providing exclusive services to areas with great potential for market growth,” Hanjin Shipping said.
“Through this restructuring, we are confident that we will provide more stable, swift and higher quality service to our customers and that we will also contribute to enhancing CKYHE Alliance’s service competitiveness,” it added.
