Container shipping lines push for rates increase as capacity begins to tighten

Asia-North Europe ocean carriers are looking to hike container shipping rates by up to $500 per teu from 1 July, as space availability begins to tighten with the start of the peak season.
Carriers appear to be adopting a “shock and awe” tactic of a substantial FAK increase rather than gradual smaller rises, knowing they may not get a better opportunity before demand weakens again as the peak season fizzles out.
One carrier source told The Loadstar this ...

Market Insight: could DSV be a target for a forwarder like Damco?

It is easy to suggest that DSV could soon bulk up inorganically and, consequently, just as I noted in in my latest coverage, it’s easy to understand why M&A can be a powerful tool for the Danish forwarder.
However, identifying suitable combinations is more problematic. As there is a paucity of sizeable acquisitions that could quench its M&A thirst, how about instead an incredible twist in the ending of this corporate ...

Cargolux ready to help, as NCA aircraft may be out of operation until July

Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA), which last week announced it had grounded all its aircraft, does not expect flights to resume until next month.
It noted on its website that it anticipated flights would be grounded for just one week following its June 17 suspension, but said today: “The verification of the records will take longer than expected.
“Since we will not restart the network until we can conclude the record checking process, the first ...

Logistics sector fears Customs chaos post-Brexit – ‘Cargo won’t move’

A two-year transition period is “not nearly long enough” for the logistics industry to tackle the myriad challenges brought about by Brexit, delegates at the FTA’s Keep Britain Trading event heard this week.
And a March 2019 ‘hard Brexit’ would be “catastrophic”.
Airbus yesterday added to the clamour, stating that a UK withdrawal from the EU with no deal would “directly threaten Airbus’s future in the UK” – a two-year transition would not be ...

OPEC moves toward raising oil supply to cool prices, as Iran softens stance

The logistics industry is more than aware of the inexorable rise in oil prices. But OPEC today moved closer to boosting oil output by a million barrels a day – or 1% of global supply – in an attempt to cool oil prices. Iran, facing “crippling” US export sanctions, had been against raising output when its own exports look set to fall by a third by the end of this year. ...

Industry calls on politicians: ‘let us work together to find Brexit solutions’

Companies on both sides of the Channel preparing for Brexit claim they are hamstrung by an inability to talk to each other while political negotiations continue.
They are urging the politicians to allow them to work together to find solutions.
Jean-Paul Mulot, permanent representative to the UK for the Hauts-de-France region in the north of the country, wants industry to start finding solutions together.
“We need to try to convince governments that the reality on the ground is very different ...
