Barcelona Europe South Terminal Sets STS Crane Record

The Barcelona Europe South Terminal (BEST) serviced the 14,000 TEU vessel MSC Livorno with eight ship-to-shore
(STS) gantry cranes on October 27, the first time that a container terminal in the Port of Barcelona has operated
such a high number of cranes simultaneously on a single vessel.

BEST, operated by Hutchison Port Holdings Limited (HPH), said that their average gross crane rate (GCR)
is 40 moves per hour, and combined with the total number of available cranes,
the terminal has the ability to make 220 crane moves per hour, per vessel.

“BEST is the only terminal in the Mediterranean area that features 11 ship-to-shore gantry cranes able to
operate simultaneously on this kind of a next generation container ship,” Guillermo Belcastro, General Manager of BEST, said.

The MSC Livorno has 365 meters in length with a breadth of 51 meters spanning 20 rows of containers.
A total of 1,471 containers were loaded and 2,080 were discharged.

Joost, je noemt "an average of 40 moves per hour per crane".
Ik las elders dat Rotterdam een soort van wereld record heeft van 37.1 containers per uur.

Natuurlijk begrijp ik dat jij naar het artikel verwijst, maar ik vroeg me zo af.
Ze hebben in de Australische havens een groot gedoe gehad met de vakbonden (what's new...) over het aantal bewegingen per uur en in het begin kwamen ze nog niet eens tot 20 vanwege rust en klim periodes welke waren voorgeschreven, dit is later wel wat verbeterd, maar het scheelt nogal wat als je 20 of 40 hijsjes per uur hebt. (is dat goed Nederlands?).
Groetjes - Jan
33 graden vandaag en morgen 17, gek weer.

Rotterdam is echt geen record houder, zowel snelheid als de vele pauzes zorgen dat ze niet de snelste zijn, ook niet in Europa. ( containers per kraan per uur)
Verre Oosten is het snelste, ( vooral China), wordt soms ook gewerkt met kranen die twee of vier 20” containers te gelijk kunnen optillen.

Idling Fleet Continues to Surge

Owners are rapidly laying up containerships as the market slows. The size of the idle fleet will get bigger while rates and profits slide,
says Drewry Shipping Consultants Limited.

The number of idle container vessels has gained momentum in November and has jumped 52 percent from October,
Drewry said in its Container Insight Weekly. Idled ships are defined by Drewry as those which have been inactive for at least 14 days.
The crisis weighs heavily on the global container freight market, which continues to be dominated by massive overcapacity, low demand and historically low freight rates.

The world’s idle containership fleet swelled to 238 vessels and topped 900,000 TEU in November as owners rapidly lay up containerships as the market slows.

The size of the idle container ship fleet swelled by 52 percent from October to November to reach 900,000 TEUs, the largest monthly sum since early 2010
following the market crash of 2009.

By mid-November, there were 31 idle ships with a capacity of 8,000 twenty-four-equivalent units or above, including the 18,000 TEU Triple-E vessel,
Morten Maersk.

Alphaliner recently announced that the number of unemployed container vessels has already exceeded the magic threshold of one million teu,
the highest level in five years.

The idle fleet peaked in 2009 when as much as 1.4 million TEU worth of ship capacity, then representing 11 per cent of the world fleet, was laid up.
However, while the present situation does share similarities with 2009 there are more fundamental differences.

For clarification, Drewry classifies a ship as idle when it has been stationary for a minimum of 14 days.
So-called missed voyages do not count as these vessels continue to sail without calling at ports so that they can be easily fitted back into the schedule.

CMA CGM gets financing for NOL acquisition
France’s CMA CGM is in talks with banks including BNP Paribas Group, HSBC Holdings PLC. and J.P. Morgan & Chase Co. to raise money to finance the acquisition of Singapore shipping company Neptune Orient Lines Ltd. in a deal valued at around $5 billion, people with knowledge of the deal said Thursday.

CMA CGM, the world’s third-largest container shipper by capacity had late last month entered into exclusive talks with NOL’s largest shareholder, Temasek Holdings Pte. Ltd., to buy its stake in the Singapore-listed firm. If CMA CGM succeeds in acquiring the stake, it will eventually lead to an offer for all of NOL.

“CMA CGM must show it has the financial muscle to go through with the deal so it is talking to the banks,” one of those people said, also that the terms of the deal are still be being worked out.
cma.jpg (129.66 KiB) 4671 keer bekeken

The offer could include $3 billion in NOL’s debt. NOL has a market capitalization of close to $2 billion. A deal would allow Temasek to exit from a company that has been incurring losses for many years.

If the acquisition goes through, it would be one of the biggest tie-ups between container-shipping lines in recent years and would mark a rare consolidation in a fragmented industry. The exclusivity period ends Monday.

If CMA CGM makes an offer to buy Temasek’s 65% stake in NOL, Singapore takeover rules require that the French shipper make an offer for the whole company. According to Singapore laws, an acquirer has to make an offer to buy the whole company if its stake tops 30%.

Earlier in November, NOL had disclosed it was in separate talks with both A.P. Moller-Maersk A/S, the world’s largest container line by volume, and CMA CGM. In a statement on Nov. 21, NOL said that it and its shareholder have entered into exclusivity with CMA CGM that will allow the French shipper to conduct due diligence and negotiate definitive terms of a potential agreement.

NOL, which handles about 3% of global container volumes, said there is no assurance that the talks would lead to a definitive offer.
Sluggish global trade and overcapacity have hammered even the biggest shipping lines, forcing many into strategic alliances and rounds of cost-cutting. Many blame the industry’s fragmented nature for its current struggles. With few companies controlling more than 5% of the market, reducing the glut of ships is taking longer than many industry observers had anticipated.

Even so, consolidation has been rare. Several potential takeover targets, such as NOL, are controlled by deep-pocketed sovereign-wealth funds, which can afford to ride out the industry’s boom-and-bust cycle. Others are private or family-controlled outfits, which often take similar long-term views.

NOL’s Asia-to-Americas routes would fill a weak spot for CMA CGM, whose executives have said they are looking to expand into new territories.

NOL has been looking for a buyer for months. The company reported a $96 million loss in the third quarter and sold its profitable logistics business, APL Logistics Ltd., for $1.2 billion to Kintetsu World Express Inc in May.

CMA CGM faces pressure to expand as two state-owned Chinese shipping giants, China Ocean Shipping Co. and China Shipping Group Co., are in advanced talks to merge.
CMA CGM, employs around 22,000 people around the world and manages a fleet of 470 ships.

CMA CGM’s Sea Giant Arrives in LA
The Port of Los Angeles welcomed the largest container ship ever to call at a North American port at dawn on Saturday, December 26.

Launched by the French shipping line CMA CGM on December 10, the CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin is 1,300 feet long, 177 feet wide
and has the capacity of nearly 18,000 containers, including 1,500 Reefer containers.
All containers placed in a line would equal the distance between Santa Monica and Santa Barbara.

At 1,300 feet, the Ben Franklin is longer than the Empire State Building is tall, and is wider than a football field.
The vessel is 197 ft. high, which is the same height as a 20-floor building.
After it concludes its maiden call at APM Terminals-Pier 400 at the Port of Los Angeles,
the vessel will later call at the Port of Oakland on December 31.

“By deploying an 18,000-TEU capacity vessel to the U.S., CMA CGM is showing faith in long-term growth potential of the U.S. economy,
and its commitment to increasing its U.S. market share,” said CMA CGM
The ship will be docked at Pier 400 where seven out of a possible 10 cranes will tend to it over the course of five days.

The CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin is deployed on the Pearl River Express, a service connecting the main China ports,
including Xiamen, Nansha and Yantian, with the U.S. West Coast ports. The vessel was delivered to CMA CGM on December 4, 2015.

Nou dat valt eigenlijk nog best mee Ferry, je kunt zowel aan BB als aan SB langs de railing naar voor en achter lopen, onder de buitenste rij containers door. Ook kun je tussen de container rijen door dwarsscheeps oversteken, net als bij de opbouw. En dan is er natuurlijk nog " de bak" en ook "de poop" waar een fraai lierenpark is te bezichtigen. Slaat het weer onverwachts om als je aan het ene of andere eind bent van dit drijvende geweld dan kun je onderdeks - met een beetje kruip door/sluip door- ook aan beide kanten via een langsscheepse gang weer terug naar de opbouw en/of " HET hart" van het universum :lol: , wat je dan ook maar wilt.

Container shipping profitability to deteriorate in 2016

urther widening of the supply-demand imbalance at the trade route level and insufficient measures to reduce ship
capacity will lead to an acceleration of freight rate reductions and industry-wide losses in 2016,
according to the latest Container Forecaster report published by global shipping consultancy Drewry.
The decline in global container shipping freight rates is anticipated to have been as great as 9% last year and Drewry is
forecasting that carrier unit revenues will decline further in 2016, albeit at a slightly slower pace. Excluding 2009,
the past 12 months has seen the lowest spot rates in most major trade lanes and all at the same time.
This is not solely due to fundamental supply/demand imbalances caused by weak volumes and over supply.
Ml.jpg (211.18 KiB) 3655 keer bekeken
End of year 2015 spot rates from Asia to the US West Coast and US East Coast were around $815 and $1,520 per 40ft container respectively.
These were easily the lowest since 2009 and with decent cargo growth and load factors of over 90% to the US west coast,
the rate deterioration emphasise that carriers have been fighting for market share and are positioning themselves further for potential shifting
of cargo from the West to the East Coast after the Panama Canal widening.
Spot rates of below $200 per 40ft container in the Asia-North Europe trade during June 2015 were also unprecedented.
While spot rates have staged a recovery since the start of 2016, Drewry believes that these gains will prove short-lived.

Many stakeholders point to the fact that bunker prices of for example $140 per tonne in Rotterdam (IFO380) are clearly
contributing to lower overall container freight rates, but Drewry believes that a new and worrying trend has become apparent for ocean carriers.
Drewry’s most recent data suggests that they are no longer able to cut costs faster than the prevailing declines seen in the freight rate market.
Drewry believes that oil prices have probably hit the market bottom right now and costs for the positioning of empty containers and
vessel lay ups will increase this year.
Latest calculation show that a 10,000 TEU vessel would incur a minimum of $450,000 in reactivation costs if laid up in Asia for three months or more.
It should also not be forgotten that many lines no longer even quote a BAF on same trade lanes.
The consequence of this is that Drewry expects industry losses to widen to over $5bn in 2016.

Ocean carriers believe they have taken a great deal of corrective action during the final three months of 2015 in order to lift very low freight rates.
But the removal of six major east-west services and the blanking of 32 voyages in November and 21 in December did relatively little to improve trade route supply/demand balances.
At the beginning of October 2015, average headhaul east-west load factors were only 85%, compared to 94% one year earlier.

The GRI initiatives implemented in late 2015 did not work for carriers on many trade lanes and in some cases were suspended or postponed because conditions were simply too feeble.
Drewry believes that more needs to be done by the industry to bring about any kind of stability.
Proposed or forthcoming industry consolidation may well reduce the number of big market players and improve individual company efficiency,
but this will not reduce industry vessel capacity in any way.

With the idle fleet touching one million teu in late 2015, or just under 5% of the global fleet,
decisions need to be taken by lines to remove more vessels and re-structure more trade lanes with new operational agreements.
Big vessels no longer guarantee decent profitability and should Asia to North Europe contract rates be signed at an average $900 per feu (and this could be too optimistic) for 2016,
this equates to an estimated $1.4 billion loss for the carriers on one trade lane.

Neil Dekker, Drewry’s director of container research, said:
“Comparisons are being made to 2009 when approximately 1.3 million teu was removed from a considerably smaller fleet.
The mass scale lay ups were triggered by the fact that lines ran out of cash.
The industry is not there yet as some lines are still making a profit and the very low fuel prices are propping them up.
But a further two or three quarters of declining financial profitability may trigger a notable rise in the idle fleet as we enter the second half of 2016.”
