Shipping must do better on CO2 emissions: ‘Shape up or ship out’

Environmental lobbyists have derided “ambitious” CO2 reduction plans announced by four international shipping associations as “hardly a break from business as usual”.
Yesterday, Bimco, Intercargo, the International Chamber of Shipping and Intertanko jointly proposed that the International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulate to maintain international shipping’s annual CO2 emissions below 2008 levels, and reduce emissions per tonne of cargo transported by at least 50% of 2008 levels by 2050.
The director of global shipping ...

New call for members to see IRU audit that cleared chiefs of malpractice

Allegations of financial misconduct continued to dog the International Road Transport Union’s (IRU) executive management last week, several months after it claimed an audit conducted by EY [Ernst & Young] had cleared it of any wrongdoing.
A presentation given on 12 June in Geneva at the 73rd Session of the TIR Executive Board (TIRExB), and made available to The Loadstar, once more called for the audit to be made available to ...

North-south freight rates on the up, but carriers not having it all their own way

Ocean carriers have succeeded in substantially hiking container freight rates on key north-south trades during the past year.
According to Alphaliner, judicious capacity management has pushed spot rates from China to South America to their highest level since the inception of the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index (SCFI) in 2009.
This week, the China-South America component of the SCFI added $48 per teu to hit a new high of $3,599 per teu, which, notes Alphaliner, ...

Orders for conversions dominate air freight business at Paris Air Show

The Paris Air Show, a sweltering affair by all accounts (in direct contrast to last year’s flooded and soggy Farnborough) has come to a close, with Boeing and narrowbodies declared the winners as the 737 MAX took most of the glory. Airlines noted that there was already sufficient widebody capacity and the usual numerous orders failed to arrive from the now-challenged Gulf carriers. In cargo, DHL Express ordered four passenger-to-freighter conversions of the ...

Qatar Airways burns money circling the blockade, but eyes ‘puzzling’ investment

It’s not strictly freight, but it is Friday – and it’s also rather intriguing. It all centres around Qatar Airways.
Yesterday came the news that Qatar Airways is interested in buying up to 10% of arch-rival American Airlines (for a heady $800m) – an offer the US carrier’s CEO, Doug Parker, said was “puzzling”, given their history.  Mr Parker added that any investment by Qatar Airways would in no way end American’s continual complaints about ...

Truckers work alongside coders trying to eliminate their jobs

A Bloomberg long read on Starsky Robotics, one of the best-named start-ups around. The company is working in the driverless trucks field, but rather than trying create a completely automated vehicle from scratch, it has “designed an artificial intelligence system for big-rig trucks that makes them mostly self-sufficient on highways and then, when it’s time to exit onto local roads, allows them to be taken over and driven from a ...
