Hundreds of shippers still waiting for cargo in Hanjin boxes ‘held hostage’ by out-of-pocket ports

Three months after the collapse of Hanjin Shipping, hundreds of shippers have still not received their cargo, even though the bankrupt carrier’s containerships have now all been discharged.
When Hanjin entered court receivership on 31 August, some 500,000 teu, worth an estimated $12bn, was on over 100 ships around the world – many were refused entry into ports until debts had been settled and several were arrested by creditors.
Evidence of the continued fallout was revealed at a meeting of ...

The strike caused the cancellation of at least 75 flights and delayed the shipment of some 1.5 million Amazon and ...

Surge in shipping services to Iran won’t mean profits and will harm transhipment ports

The inevitable flood of shipping lines calling at Iran will lead to a lack of profitability and challenges for transhipment ports in the region, TOC Middle East delegates were told today.
Noting that similar problems happened in South America a few years ago, Lars Jensen, CEO of SeaIntelligence, explained that a wider network suited liner alliances, and that two of them already planned to offer direct Iran services next year.
“For Iran, that makes ...

Analysis: OOIL may be under stress, but it has time to look for the right deal

Speculation that Orient Overseas (International) Ltd (OOIL) is likely to be involved in some sort of deal-making is nothing new – and could well return at some point in the next few weeks.
A few months before Singapore’s Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) was acquired by France’s CMA CGM, which valued the equity of the target at $2.4bn around the end of 2015, OOIL was rumoured to be close to cutting a deal ...

In it for the long haul: Amazon will now truck data to the cloud

Amazon is now hosting so much data for clients in the cloud that it is literally having to truck it to data warehouses. When it transitions a new company, some have such a lot of backed-up information that it can literally take years to transfer it online. In response, Amazon has developed its Snowmobile vehicle, effectively a 45ft container that can hold up to 100 petabytes (The Loadstar is learning some ...

Taiwan government urged to help debt-ridden Yang Ming

Shortly after senior Taiwanese shipping line executives denounced suggestions that its two main shipping lines, Yang Ming and Evergreen, might merge, it now appears that Taiwan’s ministry of transportation and communications is considering merging the former with state-owned port operator Taiwan International Port Corp. One reason is that the government continues to hold a 33% stake in Yang Ming – while Evergreen is privately owned – making a merger with the port company a ...

THE Alliance prepares contingency plans for another shipping line bankruptcy

In the wake of the Hanjin bankruptcy, THE Alliance has devised a “catastrophic instrument” funding mechanism, to be used if one of its member lines were to fail.
The proposals would allow fellow alliance lines to “take other actions to facilitate the movement or cargo carried by the affected party to the intended port of discharge or other locations”.
Other clauses give the members the right to deal directly with shipowners of chartered-in ships and/or ...
