News / Yang Ming Q3 profit adds fuel to shipper fury at carriers’ ‘immoral’ strategy

first_img Taiwanese ocean carrier Yang Ming moved into the black in the third quarter for the first time in over two years, it said today.However, the return to group profitability for the carrier, and the bumper returns for the sector in general, has angered shippers who accuse container lines of taking advantage of supply chain pinch points to increase rates.Despite an 11% drop in its liftings, to 1.28m teu, in the quarter, Yang Ming’s revenue increased 2.8% on the same period of last year, to $1.3bn.Boosted by soaring freight rates, due to a shift in consumer spending towards e-commerce and tight capacity constraints on THE Alliance sailings, the carrier recorded a $92m net profit for Q3, and for the nine-month period, $62m.Yang Ming said a “positive trend” was continuing in the final quarter and “the company will set financial stability as its priority”.The carrier’s box business actually returned to the black in Q2, contributing a profit of $18.6m, but a $21m loss in the dry bulk sector kept the company in the red.THE Alliance partner ONE this month reported a profit of $515m for Q3, and tomorrow lead line Hapag-Lloyd is expected to also announce substantial profits for the period, after earlier upgrading its full-year earnings guidance by 28%.The liner industry is successfully navigating its way through the pandemic and has turned a potentially ruinous year into what could become one of its best ever, financially.However, carriers are coming under increasing fire from shipper associations for their unrelenting freight rate increase and surcharge assault on customers at the same time as continuing to blank sailings.Carriers have unleashed a raft of rate increases across services out of Asia in past weeks, not just on the main east-west deepsea routes, but also on secondary tradelanes, even extending into the myriad intra-Asia connections.And this week, carriers have continued to shore-up their balance sheets with a new rush of freight rate, peak season and congestion surcharges for December.Hapag-Lloyd advised shippers on Tuesday that from 1 December its FAK rates from Asia to Europe would rise by at least $2,000, to over $5,000 per 40ft.And the German carrier is not alone. The Loadstar understands from UK-based shippers that all the container lines have raised their FAK rates significantly in the past few weeks and some are refusing to negotiate the renewal of long-term contracts.The European Shippers Council (ESC) has described the strategy as “immoral”. Speaking to The Loadstar, Jordi Espin, policy manager maritime transport, said the ESC was “very concerned” about the “change in market behaviour”.He said the shortage of containers, blank sailings and spike in rates was contrary to good customer practice.“A customer-oriented market should be framed with the aim of a mutual understanding under a negotiation environment where service is offered and chosen accordingly,” said Mr Espin.“None of these factors exist now. There is no operational certainty and no possibility of price forecasting, so shippers can only hope to get their containers loaded and delivered,” he said. © Jason Row By Mike Wackett 12/11/2020last_img read more

Masdar ads 30 MW of PV-disel and installs 7,000 PV home kits in Egypt

first_imgMasdar ads 30 MW of PV-disel and installs 7,000 PV home kits in EgyptMasdar has recently completed a number of PV-diesel on-grid projects in Egypt and installed 7,000 off-grid PV systems across the country. April 27, 2016 Adilya Zaripova Installations Markets Markets & Policy Share The Abu Dhabi-based renewables developer Masdar has recently announced the completion of seven PV plus diesel hybrid plants in Egypt. By adding PV elements to the existing disel-based power plants, the projects reduce costs of purchase and transport of diesel, as well as the risk of fuel price increases, the company says.Four of the plants with the total capacity of 14 MW are located in the governorate of the Red Sea, eastern Egypt, one of the country’s most popular tourism areas. According to the developer, the projects in Marsa Alam (6 MW), Shalateen (5 MW), Abu Ramad (2 MW) and Halayeb (1 MW) have been specifically designed to serve the needs of the tourism sector.On the other hand, Masdar has recently completed three PV-diesel installations in Al Wadi Al Jadeed Governorate, bringing electricity to Egypt’s largest but least populated governorate. The biggest out of the three facilities with the capacity of 5 MW is located in Al Farafra. Two other plants, 0.5 MW each, are located in Abu Minqar and Darb Al Arbaeen.“These projects demonstrate how renewable energy can help countries meet a broad array of strategic aims — from empowering local communities, to strengthening energy security, to driving economic development,” said Masdar’s CEO Mohammad Jameel Al Ramahi.The six recently completed PV plus diesel plants build on Masdar’s 10 MW solar farm in Siwa, northwest Egypt. The facility, which has been powered in March last year, generates 17,551 MWh of solar power annually, meeting 30% of the area’s electricity needs.The Abu Dhabi-based developer has also announced that aside from its on-grid solar projects, the company has recently deployed 7,000 PV home systems across Egypt. These standalone off-grid solar home systems consist of two solar panels, two batteries with up to two days of storage capacity and lighting units.“Each project was customized to the needs of the local community,” said Khaled Ballaith, the director of the Masdar special projects unit. “Our priority was ensuring the right solution was deployed for the unique needs of the 70 villages and over 140 communities in seven governorates touched by these projects.”The PV systems now provide energy for homes, mosques, clinics, schools and community centers in remote areas that previously had no access to electricity.This content is protected by copyright and may not be reused.

Over the last 3 years or so I have been vocal at public board meetings about the back and forth threat of not funding our middle school sports program, Project-A-Team.My last 3 seasons as a coach have been disrupted by budget threats that have postponed and almost canceled entire seasons. The inconsistency is detrimental to our kids.Organized, competitive sports programs are essential parts of a school community and are building blocks for school pride and camaraderie amongst students.Students who struggle academically usually excel in other areas such as the arts or sports. Opportunities to shine in school should not be taken away from our kids due to funding.Teachers that coach students build strong relationships that spill over into the classroom-where it matters most.I would like to thank our superintendent Mr. Walker, and current board members for their commitment to saving the athletic programs, especially Project-A-Team.Sincerely,Melissa Bengen LETTER: Thank you for preserving the Jersey City middle school sports program Previous articleIn Hoboken’s 2nd Ward, Martinez-Debenedetto reveals open space waterfront planNext articleNJCU-run Jersey City special needs school plans to expand facility 50% by end of 2019 John Heinis Hoboken man killed in motorcycle crash on N.J.

By John Heinis/Hudson County View“We are prepared and ready for a quick and immediate response should the Department of Health require our schools to close in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak in our community. There is no such notification at this time,” Niesz wrote in a letter addressed to the Bayonne community today.“However, we would like our community to know we are prepared and every day we are monitoring the current COVID-19 situation …The Bayonne School District will utilize an online learning platform of Google Classroom or ClassDojo. We will be sending access instructions this week should it be necessary.”He reiterated that this was all part of a proactive readiness plan, which includes using an EPA registered disinfectant for all “touch point areas” of the schools, a hydrogen peroxide-based surface cleaner for “heavily soiled and greasy surfaces,” as well as sprayers and pressurized cleaning guns to disinfect certain areas.Niesz also noted that a claim made by a student who came to school with a facemask on, claiming that he was in a location where a family member contracted COVID-19, had been proven to be false.Additionally, they will be following the same protocols as the Jersey City Public Schools for a student that comes to school wearing a facemask: they will assumed to be ill and sent home.The JCPS are holding a half-day for students tomorrow so that staff can further discuss coronavirus preventative measures and the Hudson County Schools of Technology will do something similar on Thursday.

Coronavirus updates: France to require masks in offices following ‘upsurge’ in cases

first_imgOvidiu Dugulan/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 781,000 people worldwide.Over 22 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks. Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 5.4 million diagnosed cases and at least 171,823 deaths. Here’s how the news is developing Wednesday. All times Eastern:7:15 a.m.: Pope warns against vaccine priority for the richPope Francis said Wednesday that a COVID-19 vaccine should be “for everyone” and not made a priority for the rich.“How sad it would be if for the COVID-19 vaccine priority is given to the richest,” Francis said during his weekly general audience at the Vatican, which was held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.“It would be sad,” he added, “if the vaccine became property of such and such nation and not universal for everyone.”The pope noted how COVID-19 “has uncovered the plight of the poor and the great inequality that reigns in the world.”“The pandemic is a crisis. You don’t come out of it the same — either better or worse,” he said. “We must come out better.”6:34 a.m.: India records 1,092 more deathsIndia’s health ministry recorded 1,092 additional coronavirus-related deaths in the past 24 hours, bringing the nationwide toll to 52,889.The latest single-day rise in fatalities is lower than India’s record of 2,003 deaths reported on June 16.The country of 1.3 billion people has the world’s fourth-highest death toll from COVID-19, behind the United States, Brazil and Mexico, according to a real-time tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.More than 2.7 million people in India have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began — the third-highest count in the world.5:39 a.m.: ‘We are not seeing a surge in community cases,’ says New Zealand PMNew Zealand reported six new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, five of which were locally transmitted and are linked to a cluster of cases in the country’s most populous city.The national total now stands at 1,299 cases, 96 of which are active, according to data published on the health ministry’s website.New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the latest figures were “encouraging.”“At this stage, we are not seeing a surge in community cases,” Ardern said at a press conference Wednesday. “We have not seen any new cases outside of that identified Auckland cluster.”Health officials are still investigating how the outbreak in Auckland started after the country went 102 days without any local transmission. The new cluster of cases was discovered there last week, prompting authorities to impose a two-week lockdown in the region and to reschedule national elections.4:45 a.m.: France will require face masks in offices starting next monthFrance’s labor ministry announced Tuesday that face masks will be required in enclosed shared office spaces starting Sept. 1, citing an “upsurge” in COVID-19 cases.Mask will not be mandatory in individual offices so long as only one person is present, the ministry said.The wearing of face masks is already compulsory in public indoor spaces across France. Several cities, including Paris and Marseille, have imposed mask requirements in some outdoor areas, such as popular beaches.There were 2,238 new cases of COVID-19 identified in France on Tuesday, according to the health ministry, which is requiring on-the-spot tests for travelers coming from over a dozen nations with active virus circulation, including the United States. 3:50 a.m.: US reports more than 1,300 new deaths in a single dayThere were 44,813 new cases of COVID-19 identified in the United States on Tuesday, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Tuesday’s tally is well below the country’s record set on July 16, when 77,255 new cases were identified in a 24-hour reporting period.An additional 1,324 coronavirus-related deaths were also recorded Tuesday — a nearly threefold increase from the previous day but still under the record 2,666 new deaths that were reported on April 17.A total of 5,482,602 people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 171,823 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up and crossing 70,000 for the first time in mid-July.While week-over-week comparisons show that the nationwide number of new cases has continued to decrease in recent weeks, the number of new deaths has increased, according to an internal memo from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, obtained by ABC News on Tuesday night.
