News / Failure to recoup increased low sulphur fuel costs could see lines blanking more sailings

first_imgID 145502754 © Enrico Powell | Dreamstime.com By Mike Wackett 17/09/2019 With IMO 2020 0.5% sulphur cap on marine fuel just over 100 days from becoming law a leading shipping analyst has warned shippers that it is vital that ocean carriers succeed in obtaining their interim BAF surcharges.Container market expert and chief executive of SeaIntelligence Consulting Lars Jensen said that a failure to obtain compensation for the extra costs relating to the preparation for IMO 2020 could result in a “significant” increase in blanked sailings.Container lines will begin to incur additional costs in the final quarter of the year as vessels that are not equipped with exhaust gas cleaning scrubbers transition from the current mainstay of 3.5% HFO (heavy fuel oil) to a compliant maximum 0.5% sulphur content LSFO (low sulphur fuel oil).Indeed, carriers are preparing for a one-off hit of millions of dollars of costs associated with the decontamination of tanks, along with the extra expense of bunkering with LSFO, in order to be compliant with IMO 2020 from the 1 January start date.“It is clear that the carriers will incur additional costs in the final stretch of 2019, due to the fuel switch,” said Mr Jensen.“What is less clear is the degree to which they will be successful in passing this through to shippers,” said Mr Jensen.Yesterday The Loadstar reported on a “disturbing” container market appraisal from Bimco’s chief shipping analyst, Peter Sand.Mr Sand cautioned that the weak outlook for liner shipping would be further aggravated by a failure of ocean carriers to recover the cost of IMO 2020 from shippers.The analyst argued that the oversupply of container capacity would make it “difficult” for the lines to recover the additional fuel costs from IMO 2020.However, with the liner industry estimated to have lost a cumulative $0.5bn in the first half of the year; freight rates coming under severe pressure; and booking forecasts on the major tradelanes worsening by the week carriers could be forced to act ruthlessly and take out even more capacity.Mr Jensen argued that if carriers are not successful in implementing their interim BAFs they might “also be challenged in implementing the full BAF from January.“As a consequence, they would likely feel compelled to reduce capacity in many tradelanes in order to ensure implementation, and in this case we could see the amount of blank sailings significantly beyond what we are already witnessing,” Mr Jensen continued.Meanwhile, the latest projections The Loadstar has seen for the premium of LSFO against HFO are coming out in the $150 to $200 per tonne range, which could add around $2m to the roundtrip voyage cost of a non-scrubber fitted ULCV deployed on the Asia-North Europe route.And with the bombing of a Saudi refinery at the weekend substantially spiking global oil prices the spread could grow even greater.Rotterdam-sourced IFO 380 (HFO) was quoted this morning at $371 per tonne, after a jump of $44, while LSFO is shown at $548, having increased by $48 per tonne overnight.last_img read more

Kim Jong Il Recovers his Health, Regime Stabilizes

first_img North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR AvatarYang Jung A [imText1]With the protocol to stabilize the internal regime that North Korea has pursued for the first half of the year, speculations arise that they will carry on with a bolder policy both within and outside the government for the latter half of the year.Lee Bong Jo, Head of the Korea Institute for National Unification claimed in the “Analysis of the North Korean Political Situation in the First Half of the Year” that he released through his website on the 27th that “North Korea will stifle the overly festive mood that is widespread that may hurt societal unity both within and outside the government. Through individuals in central political and military institutions, it seems that North Korea has tried meticulously to normalize national institutions in efforts to stabilize the regime.Accordingly, he predicted, “There is a possibility that North Korea will pursue a further bolder policy both within and outside the government following the conclusion of the efforts to stabilize the internal regime and the recovery of Kim Jong Il’s health in the latter half of the year.”The report added that “Internally, efforts will be focused to bring about technology and resources with regards to arbitrary expenses for enterprises and factories as well as strengthening of the efforts to involve the general public to solve economic issues. Externally, it is assumed that diplomatic efforts such as the expansion of dialogue between North Korea and the U.S. to settle economic compensation issues and the inducing of a North Korea – U.S. conference to solve the issue of military issues on the peninsula will be strengthened to change the North Korea – U.S. relationship.In the analysis of the political category of the first half of the year, it evaluated that, “North Korea has carried on with its Great Four political festivities such as the 65th birthday of Kim Jong Il, 95th birthday of Kim Il Sung, 75th anniversary of the establishment of the army and the Arirang Commemoration without any other obstacles and showed off their continuance of political stability and Kim Jong Il’s grasp over his power.”However it also analyzed, “Unexpectedly, the Great Four festivities did not surpass the scale of an ordinary festival and some parts of the festival were concluded earlier as the schedules were moved up. When considering the importance of a “Year that was Snapped Down”, this may be reflecting the problems on a internal regime level.”In addition, it pointed out, “The frequency of Chairman Kim’s public activity during the first half of the year has fallen to half [compared to last year]. Such low public activity reflects the personal problems [health issues] of Kim Jong Il or the direct signs of the internal regime.”The report goes on to state that during the first half of the year, it is “judged that North Korea has replaced several leading officials and pursued a stabilization of the structure of internal political power. The current individuals carry a distinct trait of being replaced in practical affairs (Prime Minister, external affairs) or strengthening and consolidating the central power institutions such as the National Defense Commission, Military Chief of Staff, General Political Bureau and the team managing the overall political propaganda.”“Latter Half of the Year, North Korea May Attempt a Political Disruption of the South”Regarding the economic sphere, it has been evaluated that “North Korean authorities have spent effort to solve energy issues such as the previous economic decisions on electricity and coal. They have further tried to improve equipment to raise the effectiveness of the opening and development of the 4th Taecheon Power Plant and the First Eorang Stream Power Plant.”Regarding the policy toward South Korea, “North Korea has showed its active involvement for the start of various North-South Conferences to gain actual benefits (such as economic benefits) and shows that it is actively using humanitarian conferences as a means to gain benefits as well. Especially regarding the case of the North-South Military Conference, instead of pursuing a conference to build credibility of North-South forces, it has gone in the direction of achieving political goals such as making the NLL problem into an issue.”The report also claims, “North Korea has officially started political involvement in South Korea and strengthened “National Cooperation” politics to take a half step in the consolidation of a pro-North Korean force and the fight against the U.S. in the first half of the year. They have genuinely tried to move strategically in their involvement with South Korean politics as they try to take the essence of the South Korean presidential election and to change it to a power struggle between “Pro-North Korean peace parties and Anti-North Korean militant parties”. Regarding the South Korean presidential elections, “North Korea’s involvement can be broadly divided into the invitation of pan-ruling party candidates to North Korea and the anti-Grand National Party (GNP) propaganda activity. At first it started to generalize GNP as an anti-North Korean militant party and criticized them but it has moved on and spread to criticize the individual GNP’s candidates that seem favorable in the presidential election.Moreover, it predicted that in the latter half of the year, “If North Korea feels the necessity, there is possibility that it will attempt political or societal division within South Korea through a series of activity to heighten anxiety or creating a division between the “militant party versus the peace party” within South Korea.

North Korea is “scrambling” to secure large amounts of COVID-19 vaccine…

first_imgNorth Korea has reportedly been scrambling to secure large amounts of COVID-19 vaccine since the United States pledged to provide the South Korean military with vaccines during last month’s US-South Korean summit. The authorities apparently plan to inoculate the military first with any proven vaccines they can get their hands on, regardless of country of origin.According to a high-ranking Daily NK source in North Korea on Friday, the authorities late last month ordered cadre-level North Koreans residing overseas to secure vaccines. The order instructed them to quickly send as much vaccine as they could, even if this meant Chinese-made vaccines.In fact, North Korean authorities have long hesitated to adopt Chinese-made COVID-19 vaccines such as those produced by Sinovac and Sinopharm.In fact, North Korean authorities reportedly banned the use of Chinese-made medical supplies in major hospitals in Pyongyang after a high-ranking economic official died soon after receiving a Chinese-made injection. Chinese-made vaccines have apparently been excluded from the country’s vaccine sample research as well.North Korean authorities appear to have repeatedly expressed distrust of Chinese-made medical items; however, the recent US-South Korean summit may have promoted the change of heart evident in Pyongyang’s latest order.Immediately after the summit on May 21, US President Joe Biden said Washington would provide vaccines for 550,000 South Korean military personnel.ri pyong cholKim Jong Un at the leadership podium during the Party Foundation Day military parade in Pyongyang on Oct. 10, 2020. / Image: KCNADaily NK’s source further said that North Korean military authorities have taken the South Korean military’s COVID-19 inoculations as a “psychological threat.”Precisely how many COVID-19 cases and deaths there have been in the North Korean military remains unknown, but statements by multiple sources suggest about 20% to 25% of the North Korean military’s total strength is currently in quarantine.With the rise in the number of personnel in quarantine with COVID-19 symptoms, some units that were operating on a three-shift basis have gone to two shifts.Meanwhile, North Korea was reportedly planning to make soldiers a priority group for inoculations if the country received vaccines from the COVAX Facility, an international initiative to jointly purchase vaccines. North Korean authorities considered prioritizing soldiers with the growth in the number of suspected COVID-19 cases in the military outstripping the civilian population due to communal living conditions at military bases.A high-ranking North Korean source claims, however, that North Korea balked when the World Health Organization (WHO) demanded Pyongyang provide prior notification of its vaccination plans and allow post-vaccination monitoring in return for the vaccines. Judging it difficult to vaccinate its soldiers with vaccines from the WHO, and with South Korea beginning to vaccinate its own soldiers, North Korean authorities seem to have started efforts to secure vaccines for the country’s military.In fact, North Korea could hasten its inoculations based on the fact that the authorities have ordered North Korean diplomats, intelligence agents and traders to make vaccine acquisition a top priority.“With the number of suspected cases and deaths among not only soldiers, but also civilians, on the rise, the mood inside the country due to the coronavirus isn’t good,” said the source. “I think the introduction of vaccines may be hastened because the authorities are taking active measures.”Please direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean News tweet AvatarSeulkee JangSeulkee Jang is one of Daily NK’s full-time journalists.

ESMA eyes proxy advisors

James Morton Related news Banks, insurers plan virtual AGMs Share this article and your comments with peers on social media SEC seeks to toughen proxy rules European securities regulators have decided that the proxy advisory business doesn’t require regulatory intervention, but that it’s recommending a code of conduct for the industry. The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published a new report, which found that “there is no current market failure related to proxy advisors interaction with investors and issuers”, which would justify regulatory intervention. However, the ESMA also identified a number of concerns regarding the independence of proxy advisors, and the accuracy and reliability of their advice. Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Keywords Proxy voting So, it is recommending that the proxy advising industry (which provides voting recommendations to shareholders on issuer and shareholder proposals and M&A transactions, among other services) develop a code of conduct that focuses on identifying, disclosing and managing conflicts of interest; and, fostering transparency to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the advice. The ESMA reports that it has had initial discussions with several firms from the industry who are supportive of beginning work on a code, including Glass Lewis, Institutional Shareholder Service (ISS), IVOX, Manifest, Nordic Investor Services, PIRC and Proxinvest. The work is expected to begin in the next few weeks, it says. Last year, Canadian regulators also initiated a consultation about possible regulation of proxy advisors here too. And, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) published a consultation paper setting out possible options for regulating these firms. It also cited concerns such as conflicts of interest; transparency; and the level of engagement with issuers; among other things. The CSA has not yet said whether it believes any regulation is justified. “In its efforts to intensify its work on corporate governance issues, ESMA has undertaken an extensive analysis of the proxy advisor industry in the EU, with input from users, providers and issuers, and has found no evidence of a market failure requiring regulatory intervention,” said Steven Maijoor, chair of the ESMA. “However, there are a number of concerns regarding conflicts of interest management and the transparency of analysis and advice, which we believe would benefit from improved clarity on the part of the industry,” he added. “The establishment of an EU code of conduct will assist in improving understanding amongst issuers and investors of the proxy advisors’ role, allowing them to better focus on fostering effective and robust corporate governance, thereby contributing to investor protection and efficient markets.” The report sets out a framework for a code, including the roles of the different stakeholder groups, the relationship with other corporate governance codes for issuers and the key principles concerning proxy advisors which ESMA would expect such a code to cover. The ESMA says that it will facilitate work on a code, but this will need to be drafted and adopted by the proxy advising industry itself. SEC calls for input on climate-risk disclosure read more

Melania Trump: Our Path Forward

first_imgMelania Trump: Our Path Forward The White HouseLike all of you, I have reflected on the past year and how the invisible enemy, Covid-19, swept across our beautiful country. All Nations have experienced the loss of loved ones, economic pain, and the negative impacts of isolation.As your First Lady, it has been inspiring to witness firsthand what the people of our great Nation will do for one another, especially when we are at our most vulnerable.With nearly every experience I have had, I found myself carrying many individual’s stories home with me in my heart.Most recently, my heart goes out to: Air Force Veteran, Ashli Babbit, Benjamin Philips, Kevin Greeson, Rosanne Boyland, and Capitol Police Officers, Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood. I pray for their families comfort and strength during this difficult time.I am disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week. I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me – from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda. This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens. It should not be used for personal gain.Our Nation must heal in a civil manner. Make no mistake about it, I absolutely condemn the violence that has occurred on our Nation’s Capitol. Violence is never acceptable.As an American, I am proud of our freedom to express our viewpoints without persecution. It is one of the paramount ideals which America is fundamentally built on. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect that right. With that in mind, I would like to call on the citizens of this country to take a moment, pause, and look at things from all perspectives.I implore people to stop the violence, never make assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin or use differing political ideologies as a basis for aggression and viciousness. We must listen to one another, focus on what unites us, and rise above what divides us.It is inspiring to see that so many have found a passion and enthusiasm in participating in an election, but we must not allow that passion to turn to violence. Our path forward is to come together, find our commonalities, and be the kind and strong people that I know we are.Our country’s strength and character have revealed themselves in the communities that have been impacted by natural disasters and throughout this terrible pandemic that has affected all of us. The common thread in all of these challenging situations is American’s unwavering resolve to help one another. Your compassion has shown the true spirit of our country.As I said over the summer, it is these defining moments that we will look back and tell our grandchildren that through empathy, strength, and determination, we were able to restore the promise of our future. Each of you are the backbone of this country. You are the people who continue to make the United States of America what it is, and who have the incredible responsibility of preparing our future generations to leave everything better than they found it.It has been the honor of my lifetime to serve as your First Lady. I want to thank the millions of Americans who supported my husband and me over the past 4 years and shown the incredible impact of the American spirit. I am grateful to you all for letting me serve you on platforms which are dear to me.Most importantly, I ask for healing, grace, understanding, and peace for our great Nation.Every day let us remember that we are one Nation under God.

125th Anniversary Celebration At The University Of Colorado To Be A Potpourri Of Cakes

first_imgHistoric Norlin Quadrangle at the University of Colorado at Boulder will be a sea of cakes the afternoon of April 20th as thousands of guests gather to celebrate the university’s 125th anniversary. Traditions Catering of Boulder has been ordering supplies, including 125 heavy-duty cake boxes, for the past two months in preparation for the celebration. Baking begins this weekend on the centerpiece cake — a replica of Old Main in chocolate filled with raspberries and whipped cream. The 5-foot-tall, 400-pound confection will measure 3 feet by 4 feet at the base and will require three people to move it. “We’ve never dropped a cake,” said Traditions owner Kim Warshaw. “We do this throughout the year with wedding cakes, some much larger than this, so we’re used to moving heavy cakes. We’re very careful.” The brick-red frosted cake will have a white tower and slate gray roof, “just like Old Main,” Warshaw said. Melissa Martin, pastry chef for Traditions, will begin baking the Old Main cake on Saturday and should have it done, single-handedly, by Wednesday. It will be decorated with trees and grass made of frosting at the base. The remaining 124 cakes will be baked Sunday and Monday and decorated Tuesday through Thursday of next week. All will be two-layer sheet cakes and should appeal to every taste imaginable in chocolate, white, carrot, poppyseed, lemon, orange, spice and amaretti cookie flavors. The sheet cakes will not be light either at about 10 pounds each, Warshaw said. “We use all fresh ingredients so these cakes are heavier than your typical sheet cake.” More than 1,000 eggs and 1,000 pounds of butter will go into the 125 cakes, she said. The cakes will serve the more than 4,000 guests expected for the anniversary celebration. The weight and sheer number of sheet cakes provide perhaps the biggest challenge to the caterers, Warshaw said, because they present such a big obstacle in the shop at 2850 Iris St. in Boulder. “One of the most challenging things about this order has been to find sturdy boxes that we could stack without crushing the cakes so that we can all move through the shop,” she said. “One hundred and twenty-four cakes take up a lot of space.” But despite the size of this order, it doesn’t top the record for big jobs handled by Traditions. That was set in 1994 when the caterers assembled box lunches for 60,000 Promise Keepers meeting at Folsom Stadium, Warshaw said. “We had a team of 30 people working for a week to assemble those lunches,” she said. “So this job, by comparison, is not that bad.” Piece of cake, you might say.

Hutch launches global platform for MVNOs

Bell Canada pauses 5G launch plan

first_img Xiaomi smartphone surge bears fruits AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 07 MAY 2020 Bell Canada put a commercial 5G launch on hold due to the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, but stood by capex allocated for the next-generation network despite declines in earnings during Q1.During an earnings call, CEO Mirko Bibic said Bell Canada is “ready with our initial 5G network, but frankly we don’t think that it’s the right time right now to officially launch it”, with customers unlikely to be “paying attention” at this time.He noted the Samsung Galaxy S20 was among several 5G devices lined up, and the operator would provide an update on a revised launch plan once the economy begins to reopen following lockdowns.It withdrew its 2020 guidance due to the uncertainty caused by the outbreak, but Bibic and CFO Glen LeBlanc said plans to spend between CAD4 billion ($2.8 billion) and CAD4.1 billion on 5G upgrades and deployment of new fixed assets over the course of the year stood.“This is not a time to pull back capital spending on critical network infrastructure. The country is depending on us,” Bibic said.The operator named Nokia as a 5G equipment vendor in February.MetricsProfit fell 7.3 per cent year-on-year to CAD733 million, with revenue of CAD5.68 billion down from CAD5.73 billion.Wireless revenue was down 2 per cent to CAD2.03 billion, with service turnover flat at CAD1.54 billion and equipment 9.1 per cent lower at CAD488 million.It added 19,595 mobile subscribers compared with 38,282 in Q1 2019.

News / PSA grows its business ‘despite industry chaos and economic disruption’

first_img“The frenzied container liner shipping consolidation in 2016, which percolated into service deployment changes in 2017, also contributed towards PSA’s group throughput for the year.”Indeed, the alliance reshuffle in April last year was a positive development for Singapore, as the throughput at PSA’s flagship terminals jumped 9% to 33.3m teu.And the number of weekly calls at Singapore from the three alliances increased to 34 from 29 under the previous four-alliance structure..According to consultant Alphaliner, Singapore’s gain was largely at the expense of Port Klang, which saw its weekly Asia-Europe services “more than halved”.Looking forward, PSA said there were “challenges and opportunities” in 2018 and further ahead. It said: “The world and our industry will continue to be buffeted by an inexorable and accelerating pace of transformation and disruption in the way goods are produced, sold, transported and used.“We are keenly aware that the dynamics of our industry remain highly changeable and competitive.”Like its peers, PSA is having to deal with the new dynamics of a significantly smaller portfolio of liner customers and the consolidated liner industry is exerting downward pressure on stevedoring rates by not only demanding the lowest common denominator on rates, but also reductions for increased volumes.However, PSA said it was looking to offer its liner clients added value by means of digital advancements.“As we witness the current wave of digitalisation and acknowledge the increasing quest for cargo flow visibility, we believe PSA can work with our customers and partners to create a new suite of solutions that exploit the opportunities digitalisation offers,” it said.PSA operates some 40 container terminals in 16 countries across Asia, Europe and the Americas. Singapore-based port operator PSA International said it managed to grow its container terminal business last year, despite “economic disruptions, rising protectionism and chaotic operating conditions”.PSA handled 74.24m teu at its container terminals around the world, an increase of 9.8% on 2016.Turnover increased by 7.8% to S$3.97bn (US$3bn) and net profit was up by 5.1% to S$1.23bn.PSA group chairman Fock Siew Wah said: “2017 ended on a relatively positive note as global container throughput had its strongest showing since 2011, aided by stronger economic growth in many countries. © Serban Enachecenter_img By Mike Wackett 20/03/2018last_img read more
