Shpg Gazette 20/2/14 - Damned if you do, damned if you don't - trans-oceanic carriers forced to take the mega ship plunge
ON one hand, it seems sheer madness to order more ultra-large container vessels (ULCV) providing the world what it plainly does not need. On the other hand, it also looks like the only way for second tier liners to stay in trans-oceanic container shipping business.   While it is counter-intuitive to add capacity in a world awash in unwanted slots as ships are being cascaded down to sparse emerging market north-south trades, is there much of a choice?   Now that the Big Three in the P3 - Maersk, MSC and CMA CGM - are to bundle themselves into what amounts to a single As

JOC 19/2/14 - Container Ship Fleet Growth Slowing, But Overcapacity Persists
The global container ship fleet this year is expected to grow at the slowest rate in a decade, but large and small shipping lines continue to order more new ships than the forecast growth of global container cargo can fill over the next two years, especially on the Asia-Europe trade.   This is why so many carriers are combining in mega-alliances, such as the P3 Network among Maersk Line, Mediterranean Shipping Co. and CMA CGM, or the possible CKYH-E, with more expected to come.   Alphaliner is forecasting that deliveries of new ships will add 9.6 percent of capacity to th

JOC 20/2/14 - Market Share Shifts From US West Coast to East Expected to Be ‘Slow and Small’
U.S. West Coast ports will lose some container volume to East and Gulf Coast ports once the Panama Canal is enlarged, but there is no need to panic as long as they remain reliable and efficient gateways for U.S. trade with Asia, Tioga Group principal Dan Smith said yesterday. Any loss of market share will be “slow and small,” and that is a point that even the Panama Canal Authority has made, the industry consultant and transportation planner told the California Maritime Leadership Symposium in Sacramento. The canal authority projects that its container volume will increase about

Shpg Gazette 21/2/14 - Hanjin Shipping to scrap thirteen 5,300-4,000 TEUers on Indian beaches
SOUTH KOREA's Hanjin Shipping has sold 13 containerships - even 5,302 TEU and six 4,024 TEUers built between 1996 and 1998 - for scrap on the breaker beaches of India. Most vessels were from the transpacific service, with the smaller ships deployed on Far East-US east coast strings via the Panama canal while the overpanamaxes were deployed on Far East-US west coast services, reported Alphaliner. It said the ships are currently being phased into Far East-India rotations, for final delivery to the scrap buyers. The first scrapped unit, the Hanjin Shanghai, arrived in Alang on Ja

Shpg Gazette 21/2/14 - Boxship capacity growth to be offset by scrapping, delivery delays
NEW vessel capacity due for delivery this year, amounting to a record 1.65 million TEU and representing 9.6 per cent of the total global fleet as of January, will be offset by scrapping 500,000 TEU and 200,000 TEU in delivery deferrals. The flood of vessel scrapings and delivery postponements would cut 4.1 per cent off the forecast 2014 capacity growth rate and bring it down to 5.5 per cent, according to Alphaliner, which would be the lowest annual increase since 1999. Containership scrapping is expected to reach a new annual record spurred by the recent exodus of unwanted panamax

Shanghai Containerized Freight Index, North Europe, week ending Feb. 21, 2014.

JOC 21/2/14 - Mega-Ships, VSAs Tax Terminal Operations
Mega-ships and carrier alliances could prove to be the financial savior of the container shipping industry, but they are also straining the operations of marine terminals and motor carriers.   Take, for example, a weekly trans-Pacific service to Los Angeles-Long Beach with 10,000-TEU vessels. That service today is probably operated by a vessel-sharing alliance of several carriers. In the past, the same container volume would have moved via two separate services by individual carriers deploying 5,000-TEU vessels.   The concentration of container volume into a single weekly

Shpg Gazette 22/2/14 - China Shipping: Can't match P3 rates because of its economies of scale
  STATE-OWNED China Shipping (Group) Company is opposed to the proposed vessel-sharing alliance between Maersk, CMA CGM and MSC on anti-competition grounds, claiming it will not be able to match the freight rates offered by P3 owing to its greater economies of scale.   "China Shipping opposes P3 to enter China market," said a spokesman who works on the board of the company that controls the world's ninth-largest carrier, China Shipping Container Lines, reported Lloyd's List.   "Such a massive tie-up will reduce operational costs for the alliance membe
