April import boost for US ports may be the ‘quiet before the tariff storm’

Container imports last month at the 10 largest US box terminals increased by 6.6% year on year to 1.65m teu.
According to Blue Alpha Capital, this follows a 4.7% uplift in imports in March and a 2.3% increase over the past three months.
However, April was very much a tale of two coasts, as east coast and Gulf port imports soared 11.5%, to 779,711 teu, while west coast numbers were up a ...

Environmentalists slam MEP74 lack of decision-making on ship emissions

“Shipping industry associations no longer represent the best interests of shipping companies,” was one damning indictment as environmentalists responded angrily to the outcome of the IMO’s Maritime Environmental Protection Committee meetings last week in London. 
The week-long discussions (MEPC 74) were set to consider proposals to cut GHGs produced by shipping, targeting a 50% reduction in maritime emissions by 2050.
However, hopes of a clear path forward on any short-term measures were ...

Elbe upgrade signals opportunity for port of Hamburg to regain former glory

It appears the port of Hamburg has “something to sell” again, after the German gateway announced a 6.4% increase in first-quarter container traffic.
Hamburg’s growth rate far exceeded “noisy neighbour” Antwerp’s 0.7% upturn – in recent years the rival has held Hamburg’s traditional crown as the second-busiest container gateway in north Europe.
A spokesperson for Hamburg told The Loadstar container volumes from China – its largest trading partner – had increased 2.1% ...

A promised 15% improvement in warehouse worker productivity has led DHL Supply Chain to roll out the use of “smart glasses” across its network.

Meanwhile, US-based Neovia Logistics has placed an order for 85 smart ...

In July, an intrepid Loadstar team will undertake the 24-Peak Challenge on behalf of Seafarers UK, the charity which provides vital support to seafarers in need and their families.

The course is 31 miles long and includes Scafell Pike, the highest peak in ...

Supreme Court rejects UPS appeal on USPS delivery prices

Three in one today. UPS’s appeal to force the US Postal Service (USPS) to raise its parcel-delivery prices has been rejected by the US Supreme Court. Bloomberg reports that the decision means the government can continue determining how much to charge for parcels. It seems the big winner here is Amazon, which heavily uses USPS for deliveries, while UPS will likely continue to find a way to force through changes. ...
