Can Flexport keep advancing as the US-China trade war rages overhead?

“The outside world has become fixated on Flexport.”
So said Steve Walker, founder of SBS Worldwide and chief executive of forwarder supplier SWG, in a speech to Canadian Forwarder Association CIFFA this week.
“I have respect for what Flexport ise creating,” he continued. “Yet, when you pull away from the headlines what is it?
“It is an online 3PL, with its own TMS, operational hubs, air charter contracts. And with country offices. And with staff. ...

Carrier efforts to stabilise Asia-Europe capacity keep spot rates steady

Carrier action to curtail capacity on the Asia-North Europe trade this month appears to have been a success, judging by this week’s Shanghai Containerised Freight Index (SCFI).
After several weeks of declining spot rates following China’s Golden Week holiday and this year’s peak shipping season, Asia-North Europe spot rates have held onto the stability seen last week.
The SCFI’s Shanghai-North Europe component showed a marginal decline of just $4, to finish the week ...

An Internet of Logistics could make it easier to share supply chain data

Container ports should spearhead an “Internet of Logistics” to tackle inefficiencies in global container supply chains.
According to PSA International chief executive Tan Chong Meng, a “connected community” beyond the scope of Internet of Things (IoT) technology is needed to improve data sharing.
“Our first ‘container port 4.0’ concept was very much an IoT-driven idea,” he said at the TPM Asia conference in Shenzhen last week.
“But when we started to look at ...

Market Insight: CEVA convinced it is on the right course, but DSV may call back

A call with a London-based financial broker closely monitoring the DSV/CEVA situation strengthened my conviction that there is a near-zero chance DSV will improve its initial bid, CHF27.75 a share, immediately rejected by the CEVA Logistics board last week.
A number of my freight forwarding sources believe DSV will return with an improved offer, and quickly; but institutional investors and the brokers working on their behalf believe otherwise.
One told me DSV would ...

CMA CGM stake in Ceva ‘is no threat to the forwarders’

CMA CGM’s investment into Ceva Logistics is not a threat to forwarder-controlled ocean freight, according to Nicolas Sartini, CEO of subsidiary carrier APL.
Speaking prior to yesterday’s announcement that CMA had upped its stake in Ceva to 33%, Mr Sartini said the rationale of the investment was to provide integrated services to large shippers that want to do direct business with carriers.
“Some customers want to deal only with forwarders, some only carriers and ...

Icelandic shipping line and multimodal operator Samskip has launched a direct rail service between the Italian rail freight hub of Melzo and Amsterdam.
