UPDATE ON DETAINED CARGO SHIPMENTS
Shippers transporting through Hanjin Shipping Co. have experienced unprecedented delays on their consignments. We have confirmed that the delay although, no fault of the consignees, has become necessary as the carrier is making effort to salvage itself from the series of deepening credit crunch that has hit its bottom line in the first quarter. Hanjin Shipping plunged to KRW 261.1 billion net loss (USD 221.67m) year-on-year from a profit worth KRW22.9 billion. The company’s operating loss totaled in KRW 116 billion, considerably slashed from last year’s profit of KRW 155 billion. The company’s sales for the quarter amounted to KRW 1.59 trillion also a major fall from KRW 2.15 trillion a year ago.

Meanwhile there is some good news for frustrated consignees, coming out of the efforts to get containers carried by Hanjin Shipping released. Beginning in Europe, the European Shippers Council (ESC) has urged ports currently holding containers against defaults by Hanjin Shipping to immediately release those containers immediately as stationary boxes hinder the global flow of goods. The ESC added it will work with the Global Shippers Alliance (GSA) to find a swift solution. GSA, which represents the logistics interest of manufacturers, retailers, and wholesalers from Asia, the European Union, and the United States has also called upon all terminals that currently hold containers to release them as soon as possible.

The Carrier's long-term survival rests with a court in South Korea while the immediate fate of tens of thousands of shipments on the carrier’s international network may sit in bankruptcy courts in the U.S. and other countries. Earlier today, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, Hanjin faces a hearing in bankruptcy court in the U.S. today, and is taking further legal action around the world for protection of its assets as the struggling shipping line works to get goods moving. More than half its vessels have been stranded in ports and at sea as creditors seek to seize them and freight handlers are refusing to handle Hanjin’s containers. On a promising not for Hanjin Shipping, the carrier’s parent Hanjin Group is offering $90 million so the company could make payments that would get its ships and cargo moving. and “minimize the negative impact” on the country’s exporters. For now, some of the world’s biggest retailers and forwarders are scrambling to get their goods pulled out of shipyards and distribution channels. Agents at some terminals are charging hefty deposits to turn over containers and the logjam on the water has grown, with 61 container ships and 18 bulk carriers now at a standstill.

[05/16/14]   Is the Air Cargo Market still Volatile? . Although there is some evidence that the air cargo market is making some kind of improvement, many airlines that operate air freighters are having a terrible time. Cathay Pacific has four older freighters parked in the US, Singapore Airlines have four 747-400's sitting in the Mojave Desert. Cathay Pacific has lost money on air cargo in the last three years, while Qantas is seeing profits melt away.

So who is making money from moving cargo? The answer may be surprising. It is the passenger airlines who seem to be doing well in the cargo market. The trick is not to try to fill a whole freighter of cargo, but to have passenger aircraft that can hold reasonable amounts of freight. The new Boeing 777's can hold up to 20 tons of cargo, double that of the 747, so it can make flights profitable if the cargo hold is full. A number of airlines are using this tactic including Emirates, American, JAL, and British Airways. Source: About.com

Weekend is coming, and after a long day you're rounding up at work getting ready to go home, perhaps hoping to beat the rush hour traffic. But hey.. its weekend, how about making a stop at the supermarket or the mall? Something is waiting to catch my interest there... what could that be? stopping at the mall sounds like a nice idea, and i buy a full sized Golden tree chocolate bar. While checking out at the counter i add an orbit gum to it...

Walking out the mall, we realize our imaginary friend is holding in hands two products and the thought dawns " Golden tree chocolate i know is Ghanaian but where from orbit and how did it get to the check-out counter".... Guess we need to help our imaginary friend out here. Feel free to comment #thejourney

We continue to assure our cherished clients and prospective customers of our reliable services all year round.

[04/16/14]   A new type of shipping container could revolutionize the shipping industry. For almost fifty years, the steel shipping container has been responsible for moving millions of products around the world. Last month a new type of container made from carbon fiber composites could change everything. The new type of container is significantly lighter than a steel container, almost half the weight.

The carbon fiber container is lighter, but more expensive than a traditional container. The cost differential is around $5000, so the initial investment is far greater, but at current diesel prices, the new container would only have to be used for around 75,000 miles to break even. In addition, the carbon fiber container is resistant to corrosion, scanned with a low power x-ray, and potentially be stored flat if not required.

Panama Canal Expansion Project Update 28/01/2014

Work on expanding the Panama Canal has been underway since 2007, but reports from Panama suggest that the rate of progress is now just inching along. The latest issue with the mammoth task will cause the whole project to halt, as the European consortium, Grupo Unidos por el Canal (GUPC), blame the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) for major deficiencies in their terrain studies, which has caused a $1.6 billion in cost overruns.

The GUPC estimated the cost of building the canal locks to be $3.1 billion, but the cost is close to $4.6 billion and the GUPC want the ACP to pay the overrun. The ACP in return has offered $100 million towards the additional costs. If the GUPC do make good on their promise to halt work on the canal expansion, then the ACP could take over. However, the cost in doing so could be more than the ACP could manage, and completing work by the scheduled by June 2015.
