DP World posts a strong first half as its customers wallow in an ocean of red ink

DP World saw revenue jump 14.4%, year on year, in the first six months to $2.6bn, as the company’s core container terminal business benefited from the upswing in global trade.
Net profit for the period was $593m, 2.1% down on the year before, which it attributed to the “illegal” seizure of its Doraleh terminal by the Djiboutian government, and the consolidation into the accounts of its Santos facility, previously treated as an ...

Thai forwarders looking forward to a busy peak season as ocean trade builds

Freight forwarders in Thailand are preparing for a busy peak season for ocean shipments.
According to Sam Loke, managing director of Pan Asia Logistics (Thailand), the market will soon start ramping-up.

Hyperloop at five and sci-fi transport quickly becoming more sci than fi

Those considering Tesla’s Semi may wish to rethink. It’s gone from bad to worse for Elon Musk’s company in less than a year since the announcement of the autonomous truck. Mr Musk has been subpoenaed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission over plans to take his company private. But while he looks to steady the ship, it’s worth considering that this week his Hyperloop system turned five years old. When ...

2018 may be a write-off as shocking H1 numbers all but sink the liner industry

Just halfway through the Q2 reporting period, some $650m of red ink has been reported by ocean carriers to add to their $1.2bn deficit for the first three months of the year.
To date, niche operator Wan Hai is the only container line to post a net profit for Q2, some $9m, as other carriers face up to the negative revenue consequences of their market share grab and inability to compensate for fuel price hikes.

Ripples from US-China trade spat begin to rock trade flows

The angry rhetoric between China and the US and their tit-for-tat imposition of tariffs on a rising number of goods are showing early effects on trade flows.
Project cargo and consumer items, led by perishables, have been affected already and more will follow as companies ramp up efforts to revamp their supply chains.
US agriculture has been one of the first sectors to feel the impact. Forwarders have reported a recent decline in ...

Hapag-Lloyd becomes first container line to launch its own online rate quotation tool

Hapag-Lloyd has become the first of the major container lines to launch an online rate quotation tool as the industry looks to further digitise processes.

Analysis: when it rains on Maersk, it can pour

‘When it rains it pours’, I thought soon after reading that the Colombian navy, according toMaritime Denmark, had seized “1,144 packages that each contained 1 kg of pure cocaine (…) found onboard the containership Cap San Tainaro, owned by German shipping company Hamburg Süd, which is part of Maersk Line”.
What an unlucky event for the Danish carrier – one it could surely have done without, given the round of bad publicity already received ...

Teamsters union rejects new UPS labour contracts

UPS workers have rejected the latest labour contracts issued by the company as it looks to shore up a collective bargaining agreement. The Teamsters, which represents some 10,000 employees, rejected the move on the grounds that its members “deserve better”. DC Velocity reports that president of the Teamsters’ Local 89s Fred Zuckerman has gone on record saying the proposed CBA was, “at best”, not good. However, Mr Zuckerman’s views are ...
