Groote: Rote Karte für skandalöses Schiffsrecycling


Neun von zehn Schiffen, die unter der Flagge eines EU-Landes fahren, werden außerhalb der EU verschrottet – vorzugsweise in südasiatischen Ländern wie Bangladesh, Indien und Pakistan. Diese Länder kennen kaum Umwelt- und Arbeitsschutzgesetze. Der Umweltausschuss des Europäischen Parlaments stimmte heute deshalb einem Vorschlag der EU-Kommission für umweltfreundliches Recycling von Schiffen zu. Dazu erklärt der Vorsitzende des Ausschusses, der SPD-Europaabgeordnete Matthias Groote:
Das Verschrotten von Schiffen an den Stränden armer Länder wie Bangladesh, Indien und Pakistan muss ein Ende haben. Umwelt- und Arbeitsschutz wird mit Füßen getreten. Als Schrottplätze dienen häufig Strände vor den genannten Ländern. Die Verschrottung erfolgt nach der Beaching- oder Beach-Shipbreaking-Methode: Das Schiff wird nahe an den Strand gefahren, so dass es aufläuft. Dann wird es mit relativ einfachen Geräten, teilweise mit bloßen Händen von Arbeitern zerlegt, die ihre eigene Sicherheit und ihre Gesundheit aufs Spiel setzen. Giftige Rückstände aus den Schiffen bleiben häufig am Strand zurück – mit schweren Folgen für die Meeres- und Küstenwelt. Die Internationale Schifffahrtsorganisation hat das so genannte Hongkonger Übereinkommen über das sichere und umweltverträgliche Recycling von Schiffen angenommen – aber es tritt erst in Kraft, wenn eine größere Zahl von Staaten es ratifiziert hat. Das wird vor 2020 kaum der Fall sein. Europa darf dem Skandal des Schiffsrecycling nicht noch sieben Jahre zuschauen und es mit seinen Schiffen sogar fördern. Wir brauchen schnell verbindliche Regeln für ein sicheres und umweltverträgliches Recyceln von Schiffen. Der Umweltausschuss spricht sich - über den Vorschlag der EU-Kommission hinaus - für einen Finanzmechanismus aus, mit dem umweltfreundliches Verschrotten finanziert werden soll. Dazu gehört eine Recycling-Abgabe von Schiffen, die europäische Häfen anlaufen. Das Geld soll in einen Fonds für Schiffsrecycling-Einrichtungen fließen, die mit zeitgemäßen technischen Standards arbeiten.

14 Technologies to Make the Ultimate Green Ship

October 23, 2011 By 0 Comments
The Shipping Industry is leaving no stones unturned in order to contribute towards a greener marine environment. At both manufacturing and administrative levels, the maritime industry is taking advantage of the latest technologies to ensure that new ships contribute as low as possible to the global pollution. Copyright CMA CGM Containerriese steuert Hamburger Hafen an Designing a Ship in present times has become a challenging task for now a ship has to be fully complied with new environmental rules and regulations. A few benchmark technologies have already been developed to reach the ultimate goal of building a “Green ship” which would not only comply with the new environmental rules and regulations but would also leave least possible carbon foot-prints. Copyright Marine >Insight We have compiled a list of thirteen new technologies which if used together would result in the ultimate Green Ship of the Future. They are as follows: 1.   No Ballast System: Ballast water convention by IMO focuses on reducing the transit of sediments and micro organisms of one territory to another through the ballast of ships. In order to prevent this condition, plans of making a “No Ballast Ships” is under progress. A no ballast ship or similar system can drastically reduce this problem. Read more about-“No Ballast ship” here. 2.   LNG Fuel for Propulsion: It is said that LNG fuel is the future of the Shipping industry. LNG fuel helps in reduction of air pollution from ships, and a combination of LNG fuel with diesel oil will lead to efficient engine performance, resulting in fuel saving. Read more about LNG propulsion here. 3.   LNG Fuel for Auxiliary engine: Auxiliary engines on ships are main sources of power. Moreover they are one of those machines that are continuous running onboard vessels. LNG fuel for such engines can drastically reduce air pollution from ships. Read more about LNG for Auxiliary engine. 4.   Sulphur Scrubber System: It’s not practically possible to phase-out usage of conventional fuels in ships and hence reducing sulphur or SOx emission from the exhaust is a solution that would be used extensively in the future. This can be achieved by installing an exhaust gas scrubber system wherein the sulphur is washed out from the exhaust gas of the engine resulting in reduction of SOx up to 98 % along with other harmful particles. 5.   Advanced Rudder and Propeller System: A well designed Propeller and streamlined rudder system can reduce the fuel consumption up to 4 % resulting in less emission. Advanced designs of propeller and rudder systems have been developed to not only reduce the fuel consumption but also improve the speed of the vessel. 6.   Speed Nozzle: Speed Nozzles are generally used in small supply vessels and tugs to provide power to the ships. Along with new design features of merchant vessels, they can improve the propulsion efficiency of the ship by saving power up to approx 5 %. 7.   Hull Paint: Another important factor that can increase the fuel consumption of a ship and hence emissions is improving hull properties. Applying correct paint at correct hull area can reduce the frictional resistance of the ship resulting in 3-8% of fuel savings. 8.   Waste Heat Recovery System: This system is already in use for quite some time now, but making it more efficient can reduce the fuel consumption of the ship drastically up to 14% of the total consumption. The waste heat from the exhaust gases can be utilised to heat and generate steam which in turn can be used for heating cargo area, accommodation, fuel oil etc. 9.   Exhaust Gas Recirculation: In this system, NOx emissions from the engine is reduced by recirculation of exhaust gas from engine cylinder with scavenge air which lowers the temperature of the combustion chamber. Some part of the exhaust air is re-circulated and added to scavenge air of the engine which reduces the oxygen content of the scavenge air along with temperature of combustion cylinder. With this method NOx reduction of up to 80% can be achieved. 10.  Water in Fuel: The addition of water in fuel just before its injection into the combustion chamber can reduce the temperature inside the cylinder liner. An efficient system for this can result in NOx reduction of up to 30-35%. 11.   Improved Pump and Cooling Water System: An optimized cooling water system of pipes, coolers and pumps can result in decreased resistance to the flow. This will lead to savings of up to 20% of electric power of the ship and fuel consumption up to 1.5 %. 12.   Sail and Kite Propulsion System: Sail and Kite propulsion system when used along with the conventional propulsion system can reduce the fuel as well as NOx, SOx and CO2 emissions by 35%. Read more about these green propulsions system here. 13.   Fuel and Solar Cell Propulsion: The fuel cell propulsion utilizes power from a combination of fuel cells, solar cells and battery systems. This helps in reduction of GHG emission to a great extent. Read more about these propulsion systems here. 14.   Sandwich Plate System (SPS): It is a process of composting two metals plates by bonding it with polyurethane elastomer core.  This avoids usage of steel which requires additional stiffening hence makes the structure light weight and less prone to corrosion. This technology can definitely play a good role in green ship recycling process as SPS feature includes superior in service performance and reduced through life maintenance. Do you think we have missed an important Green Ship Technology? Let us know and we will add it to the list.

10 Largest Container Shipping Companies in the World

August 18, 2011 By 4 Comments
 Container shipping is one of the most important and necessary means of cargo transportation through sea routes. In present times however, there does not exist any monopoly by any one of the container shipping companies leading to a complete lack of friction and tension in the international cargo shipping community. All the same there are a few international shipping companies that lead the race in terms of the scale of operation of their shipping lines. Ten of these leading shipping conglomerates can be listed down as follows: 1. NYK: An acronym for the Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, the NYK is one of the biggest cargo companies operating internationally. The company has been in operation since the 1870s, operating a passenger fleet-line before undergoing a transition into a core container shipping company towards the mid-20th century. 2. Evergreen Marine Corporation: A shipping conglomerate based in China, the Evergreen Marine Corporation was founded in 1968 by Dr. Yung-Fa Chang, a visionary in his own right. At present, the company has offices established all over the world and with a operational capacity of more than 160 container ships is regarded to be one the largest cargo shipping companies in the world. 3. CMA-CGM:  France’s leading container shipping company, CMA-CGM came into existence in the year 1978, as a result of series of mergers between previously established shipping corporations. Jacques Saade who is the head of the company was the instrumental force behind its coming into active operation. At present, the company has a fleet of over 350 ships operating in over 150 routes globally. 4. Maersk: A shipping corporation based in Denmark, Maersk Shipping Line is a branch of the AP Moller- Maersk company. Widely well-known for its fleet of container ships, the Maersk Line made its debut in the international container shipping arena in the year 1904. At present, the company has a fleet of around 500 container ships with a capacity of around 19, 00,000 TEU (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units). 5. MSC: The Mediterranean Shipping Company, abbreviated to MSC is a Swiss international cargo company which was established in the year 1970. At present, with a vessel line-up of over 456 container ships, the conglomerate is rated to be one of the most extensive cargo companies in the world. 6. Hapag-Lloyd: The German based Hapag-Lloyd is one of the most renowned and well-featured companies in terms of international shipping companies. The company was established in the year 1970 as a result of a merger between the Hamburg-American Line and the North German company Lloyd. Today the shipping corporation has over 130 ships catering to about five million containers on a worldwide scale. 7. APL: An auxiliary company to the Singaporean Orient Shipping Lines, APL is an abbreviation for American President Lines. Founded in the year 1848, the shipping conglomerate just celebrated its 160th anniversary in the year 2008. One of the most noteworthy achievements of the company is that it was the first company to successfully utilise extra-large (53 feet) containers on its vessels, accounting for shorter cargo transportation. 8. COSCO: The China Ocean Shipping Company or COSCO, as it is popularly known is one of the leading conglomerates in terms of container shipping companies. At present the company’s operations are spread over 40 countries with a fleet of 150 container ships. 9. Hanjin: A South Korean conglomerate, Hanjin Shipping Company is one of the largest Asian cargo companies in the world. At present the company has a cargo operational capacity of over 1 billion tonnes on a yearly basis with around a fleet of about 60 ships. In the year 2003, Hanjin and COSCO formed a strategic alliance. The alliance has benefited both shipping conglomerates and powered them to an unequivocal position as Asia’s leading cargo shipping companies. 10. CSCL: CSCL is the abbreviation for the China Shipping Container Lines, a company based in Shanghai. Started in the year 1997, the company soon rose amongst its ranks and today has propelled not just itself but also the country to leading heights in the container shipping industry. The company finds its name in both the Hong Kong and Shanghai Stock Exchanges. Container shipping is a huge industry and these key players are aware of the minutest operational manoeuvrings necessary to power them to being the world leaders in the commercial enterprise, not just in their home countries but also at an international level.   You may also like to read-Top 10 Historic Ships of All Time References: cma-cgmcosconapl nyklinemscgvamaerskline hanjinhapag-lloydcscl evergreen-marine Image Credits: exportlogisticsguidetaiwanreview shipclydesite, seanews, livemint myoperahandyshippingguide

Maersk Tops Profit Hopes On Container Shipping Recovery

By On
maersk container Image: AP Moller-Maersk By Ritsuko Ando and Stine Jacobsen COPENHAGEN, Feb 22 (Reuters) – A.P. Moeller-Maersk beat annual profit forecasts and predicted its container shipping business would benefit from a pick up in world trade this year, helping to overshadow a warning on falling earnings at its oil business. The Danish group, a bellwether for global trade as its vessels make up 14 percent of world container shipping capacity, said on Friday its net profit rose 20 percent to $4.04 billion last year, after it successfully raised freight prices. That beat analysts’ average forecast and the company’s previous estimate, which were both around $3.7 billion.

Copyright wolrd maritme news pls read the rest of the ariticle in above link The Group delivered a profit of USD 4.0bn (USD 3.4bn), which was slightly higher than the latest announced outlook of around USD 3.7bn expressed on 9 November 2012. The return on invested capital (ROIC) was 8.8% (8.3%). Profit was positively affected by the settlement of an Algerian tax dispute in Q1 of USD 899m combined with improved volumes, rates and unit costs for Maersk Line. Profit was negatively affected by a decline in Maersk Oil’s share of production and impairment losses of net USD 405m of which USD 268m related to Maersk Tankers in Q3. Divestment gains were USD 636m (USD 890m) with the divestment of two FPSOs, Maersk LNG and Maersk Equipment Service as the largest transactions. Revenue decreased slightly to USD 59.0bn (USD 60.2bn). Cash flow from operating activities was USD 7.6bn (USD 7.3bn) while cash flow used for capital expenditure was USD 6.3bn (USD 9.8bn) after netting sales proceeds amounting to USD 3.4bn (USD 1.7bn). The Group’s free cash flow was positive USD 1.3bn (negative USD 2.5bn). Net interest-bearing debt increased by USD 339m to USD 15.7bn (USD 15.3bn). Total equity was USD 39.3bn (USD 36.2bn); positively affected by the profit of the year of USD 4.0bn. Dividend paid was USD 945m (USD 924m). With an equity ratio of 52.9% (51.4%) and a liquidity buffer of USD 13.6bn (USD 11.3bn), the Group is well prepared and determined to execute on its long-term growth aspirations and seize market opportunities within its core businesses despite continued constraints in the financial markets. Maersk Line made a profit of USD 461m (loss of USD 553m) and a ROIC of 2.4% (negative 3.1%). The result was positively affected by improved volumes, rates and unit costs. The average freight rates were 1.9% higher at 2,881 USD/FFE (2,828 USD/FFE) and volumes increased by 5% to 8.5m FFE (8.1m FFE). Bunker consumption per FFE was reduced by 11% and headquarters headcount was reduced significantly. Maersk Line announced and implemented significant general rate increases on most trades backed by active capacity adjustments in the form of slow steaming, scrappings, idling and blanked sailings. The total fleet capacity increased by 4% to 2.6m TEU (2.5m TEU). The capacity growth in owned fleet was partly offset by redelivery of time charter vessels. Maersk Line maintained its market share for the full year. Cash flow from operating activities was USD 1.8bn (USD 899m) and cash flow used for capital expenditure was USD 3.6bn (USD 3.2bn). Maersk Oil made a profit of USD 2.4bn (USD 2.1bn) and a ROIC of 36.6% (37.2%). The result was positively affected by the one-off tax income of USD 899m from the settlement of an Algerian tax dispute and a USD 91m gain from a partial divestment of interests in Brazil. This was partly offset by a 23% decline in the Group’s share of oil and gas production to 257,000 boepd (333,000 boepd), primarily due to a lower share of production in Qatar and Denmark. Development of the portfolio included maturation of the significant projects Chissonga in Angola and Johan Sverdrup in Norway, and an agreement of further development of the Al Shaheen field in Qatar and start-up of Dunga Phase II production in Kazakhstan. Exploration expenses were USD 1.1bn (USD 1.1bn). Cash flow from operating activities was USD 3.9bn (USD 4.3bn) and cash flow used for capital expenditure was USD 2.0bn (USD 3.8bn). APM Terminals made a profit of USD 723m (USD 648m) and ROIC was 13.6% (13.1%). The result was positively affected by pre-tax divestment gains of USD 123m (USD 28m). Number of containers handled increased by 6% to 35.4m TEU (33.5m TEU), ahead of the market growth of 4%, boosted by additions to the portfolio.

Studie über Schifffahrtsmärkte

Zuversicht wächst leicht

Montag, 07. Januar 2013 Trotz der nach wie vor großen Probleme blicken die Akteure der Schifffahrtsmärkte wieder etwas zuversichtlicher in die Zukunft. Kurz vor Jahresende zeigte die Branche eine leicht steigende Erwartungshaltung – wenn auch auf niedrigem Niveau, wie eine Studie des Analysehauses Moore Stephens zeigt. Nach dem tiefsten Wert seit der Erhebung vor knapp fünf Jahren hat der Optimismus-Wert  auf der Zehnerskala von 5,3 im Sommer auf 5,6 zugenommen. Im Mai 2008 war die Studie bei 6,8 gestartet. Die leicht bessere Stimmung wird vor allem mit dem dringend nötigen Anstieg bei Verschrottungen begründet. Mehr: Im THB Täglicher Hafenbericht http://www.foonds.com/article/23662/ Rest Artikel in Link oben emma maersk Eine Erholung der Weltwirtschaft läßt zumindest der Baltic Dry Index nicht erkennen Wurde die Erholung des Baltic Dry Index seit Mitte September vom Zwischentief bei 660 auf über 1100 Punkte (Ende Oktober und Ende November) bereits aus Vorbote des konjunkturellen Aufschwungs gefeiert, macht sich seit Anfang Dezember wieder Ernüchterung breit: Der Index sackte bis Weihnachten auf 699 Punkte ab und befindet sich damit nur mehr knapp über seinem Allzeittief von 647 Punkten (Anfang Februar 2012) und fast 60% unter dem Wert von vor einem Jahr (http://www.bloomberg.com/ ). Schenkt man dem Baltic Dry Index als Frühwarnindikator weiterhin Glauben, steht der Weltwirtschaft wohl wenig Gutes bevor. Der Index umfasst die Kosten für Zeitcharter und Reisecharter für die vier Schiffsklassen Capesize, Panamax, Supramax und Handysize im Trockenschüttgutverkehr. Hauptfrachtgüter sind Kohle, Eisenerz, Zement, Kupfer, Kies, Dünger, Kunststoffgranulat und Getreide (http://de.wikipedia.org/ ). Die Schifffahrtsindustrie funkt weiter SOS. Arg in der Bredouille befinden sich nach wie vor die Schiffsfinanzierer, die unliebsame Post von der Finanzmarktaufsicht BaFin erhielten. Die Behörde ordnete eine besondere Prüfung der mit der Schiffsfinanzierung befassten Banken durch die Wirtschaftsprüfer an. Besonders von den Branchenproblemen sollen HSH Nordbank, NordLB und Commerzbank betroffen sein. Das Volumen deutscher Schifffahrtsindustrie-Kredite beträgt 100 Mrd. Euro. Auch RBS, Nordea und BNP Paribas befinden sich unter den größten 10 Kreditgebern, nur macht bei ihnen relativ gesehen das Kreditportfolio weniger aus als bei den kleineren Banken. Eine der wenigen positiven Meldungen aus der Branche war, dass sich der Schiffsfondsbetreiber MPC Capital vor der Pleite retten konnte (http://www.foonds.com/ ). http://gcaptain.com/less-profit-in-sight-for-maersk-overcapacity-hits-growth/

Less Profit in Sight as Maersk Overcapacity Hits Growth

By On
    European container-shipping operators such as A.P. Moeller-Maersk A/S may benefit little from higher volumes next year as carrier lines battle to remain profitable amid overcapacity and weak demand. Global lines will ship the equivalent of 168 million 20- foot containers, an increase of 6.6 percent from 2012, according to London-based shipping-services company Clarkson Plc. Traffic on mainline Asia-Europe routes will lag global growth, rising 4 percent to 21 million 20-foot boxes as low European consumer demand limits orders. Economic weakness caused by the debt crisis in Europe, which accounts for more than a third of global trade, is putting pressure on earnings at shipping lines such as Copenhagen-based Maersk Line, the world’s largest, and CMA CGM SA. Further clouding the outlook, industry capacity will grow 7.5 percent next year, Clarkson says, undermining efforts to boost profit on Asia-Europe routes as earlier rate rises struggle to take hold. “Unless Europe has an unexpected recovery, growth volumes from Asia to Europe are likely to be low,” said Lars Jensen, chief executive officer of Copenhagen-based SeaIntel Maritime Analysis. “Consequently we expect the structural overcapacity to persist in 2013, leading to rapid cycles of price increases and price declines as carriers intermittently idle and re- activate tonnage.” World freight traffic growth probably slowed to 4.8 percent this year from 7.1 percent in 2011, according to Clarkson. East Asia-Europe volumes will decline 3.3 percent as European consumers struggle with fiscal austerity and economic uncertainty caused by the sovereign debt crisis. Double Recessions The economy of the 17-nation euro area shrank 0.1 percent in the third quarter as the region slipped into recession for the second time in four years. A gauge of services and manufacturing output in the euro area was at 47.3 in December, staying below the 50 mark that indicates contraction for an 11th month, London-based Markit Economics said on Dec. 14. The European Central Bank forecasts the economy will shrink 0.5 percent this year and 0.3 percent in 2013. The weakness of Europe’s economy and its debt turmoil is also affecting the rest of the world, curbing global trade growth to 2.5 percent this year from 5 percent in 2011, according to the World Trade Organization’s September forecast. Global merchandise trade volume rose 2.7 percent in the first three quarters of 2012 from a year earlier, according to the Geneva-based WTO. By comparison, European Union exports were unchanged and imports posted a 2.7 percent drop during the same period. Emerging Markets Next year, global trade will expand 4.5 percent, the WTO forecast in September. World container growth in 2013 will be driven by trade on secondary routes, such as between northern and southern hemispheres and within Asia, as well as by Middle East and Indian volumes, according to Clarkson. “Shorter trade routes, more suited for smaller vessels, will become increasingly important as the growth of emerging- market demand for goods continues to outpace developed markets,” said Brandon Oglenski, an analyst at Barclays Plc in New York. “We believe supply fundamentals may improve over the next 12-18 months as container scrapping has picked up and the delivery schedule is set to run off to more manageable levels.” Maersk estimates “single-digit growth” in global container volumes in 2013, which “includes the possibility for marginal positive growth in Europe,” spokesman Hursh Joshi said in an e- mail response to questions. “Maersk is absolutely committed to maintaining capacity discipline” and “Maersk Line does not plan to offer any new capacity” on routes between Asia and Europe in 2013, Joshi said. Full Boxes Rates to ship a full 40-foot box from Shanghai, China’s busiest port, to Rotterdam, Europe’s biggest, have dropped 50 percent from a peak reached in May, according to Drewry Shipping Consultants Ltd.’s World Container Index. Carriers will take delivery of ships capable of holding 1.4 million 20-foot boxes, or TEUs, increasing the total global supply to 17.7 million, according to Clarkson. The imbalance in demand and supply has damped Maersk’s shares, which have climbed 10 percent this year compared with a 14.5 percent gain in the Stoxx Europe 600 Index. Maersk will next year start receiving the first of 20 new 18,000-container vessels built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. The ships will be the largest cargo-box carriers afloat. Shipping lines are deploying bigger vessels to boost fuel efficiency and to cut operating costs. The biggest ships are mainly used on Asia-Europe routes as U.S. ports generally can’t handle them. Vessel Delivery “Aggressive 2013 global vessel delivery plans should drive rate weakness at Maersk Line, curtailing recovery,” said Neil Glynn, an analyst at Credit Suisse Group in London with an underperform rating on Maersk. “We expect global net supply to exceed demand” next year, “with the burden heaviest on Maersk Line’s key Asia-Europe lane,” he said. http://worldmaritimenews.com/archives/70872

Maersk Line Reaches One Million TEU Milestone in Port of Qingdao, China

Posted on Dec 10th, 2012 with tags , , , , , , , , .
Maersk Line Reaches One Million TEU Milestone in Port of Qingdao, China 15 November marked a significant milestone in the history of Maersk Line in North China, as the carrier was the first ever to reach a throughput of one million TEU in the Port of Qingdao in a single year. The full-year estimate of Maersk Line’s throughput will be around 1.2 million TEU for 2012, which is around 37% more than the 873,000 TEU of 2011. Growing market Maersk Line’s presence in Qingdao has come a long way. As recently as 1994, the carrier only moved 10,000 TEU. In less than 20 years, this throughput has grown to a million. In 2004, Maersk Line expanded the service in Qingdao to deploy direct calls for European trades, and later a service was launched between Qingdao and the US West Coast, further strengthening Qingdao’s competitiveness among other ports in North China. There are currently 10 Maersk Line global services calling at Qingdao. Close relations with the port 2012 also marks the 120th anniversary of the Port of Qingdao. Having established trade relations with over 450 ports in more than 130 countries and regions across the world, the port is equipped to serve the largest vessels in the world. Today the Port of Qingdao Port is the eighth biggest port in the world. For years, Maersk Line has established a good relationship with the Qingdao Port Group. As their best working partner, Maersk Line has been provided with better solutions such as berthing priority in the terminal operation to better serve its customers. This gives Maersk Line the benefit of economies of scale. Toward the second million Bemerk.Btr. HP. : Hamburg ist der wichtigste Hafen für China in Europa noch ! u n d so soll es auch bleiben!!!!!!!

Maersk Line Currently has the Largest Number of Vessels Idle, Says Alphaliner

Posted on Nov 15th, 2012 with tags , , , , , , , , .
Maersk Line Currently has the Largest Number of Vessels Idle, Says Alphaliner A report by shipping analyst Alphaliner (Vol. 2012, Issue 46) reveals Maersk Line as the shipper with most vessels idled, currently 14 units with an aggregate capacity of 94,000 TEU. This development spearheads a recent surge in idling across the industry. “The idle containership fleet of above 500 TEU have swelled by 96,000 TEU in the last fortnight to reach 762,000 TEU or 4.7% of the current cellular fleet as at 5 November,” states the newsletter. “24 units of above 5,000 TEU are currently idle,” says Alphaliner, “compared to only two such units in early September.” The share of idle fleet for shipping companies has increased to 35%, compared to only 15% in September, states the report. Erik Rabjerg Nielsen, Maersk Line’s Head of Scheduling and Deployment, explains that “the primary reason for the latest surge in idling is the removal of the AE9 service from the Far East to Europe, currently on hold until at least the end of November. 10 vessels have been pushed out from here.” “We are continuously managing our capacity to meet market demands,” he says. “Especially on Asia-Europe we are adjusting down to ensure that we have a cost-efficient network which enables us to serve our customers in a competitive manner.” This echoes comments made by A.P. Moller – Maersk Group CEO Niels Smedegard Andersen in connection with the third quarter financial results. “If you can’t fill your vessels, of couse it is better to reduce your capacity. At least you save the cost. It is much better than going out in rate decreases,” he said on 9 November. “We have pulled quite a bit of market capacity out, so we definitely feel that we have done our share, having seen good results from it and now we expect others to behave responsibly as well.” In the toolbox for capacity management are several options for handling redundant vessels, Erik explains. “We can keep them om standby if we want to be able to deploy them again quickly. We can return leased vessels to their owners; we have done this for 71 vessels during the last few months. We can re-let them to other carriers who have needs for them. And finally we can idle vessels, realising substantial cost savings on daily running expenses

Die weltgrößte Containerreederei Maersk Line reagiert auf die schwächelnde Weltkonjunktur und will ihre Transportkapazitäten zwischen Asien und Europa reduzieren. „Momentan ist die Route ein Verlustgeschäft“, sagte Konzernchef Nils S. Andersen dem "Wall Street Journal". „Es gibt keinen Bedarf für die Menge an Schiffen, die derzeit unterwegs sind. Daher ist es selbstverständlich, dass wir darüber nachdenken.“ Über eine Größenordnung der Reduzierung machte er keine Angaben. Zudem will Maersk die Raten erhöhen.

Zu viele Containerschiffe

Schiffskapazität überspringt 16-Millionen-TEU-Marke

Containerriese im Hafen von Rotterdam: Die Kapazität der weltweiten Flotte wächst stetig an Der Welthandel passiert einen wichtigen Meilenstein zu einem denkbar ungünstigen Zeitpunkt: Seit diesem Monat können die Frachter rund um den Globus mehr als 16 Millionen Container transportieren. Die zunehmenden Kapazitäten drücken zurzeit kräftig auf den Markt. Hamburg - Mitten in einer der schwersten Krisen der weltweiten Schifffahrt seit Jahren überschreitet die globale Containerschiffsflotte eine markante Größe. Seit diesem Monat sind auf den Weltmeeren Frachter mit einer Kapazität von zusammen mehr als 16 Millionen Stellplätzen (TEU) in Fahrt. Das berichtet der Branchendienst "Alphaliner" in einer aktuellen Aussendung. Welthandels vor Beginn der Krise wurden zahlreiche neue, vor allem großkalibrige Frachter bei Werften geordert. Diese kommen nun nach und nach zur Auslieferung und drücken auf den ohnehin daniederliegenden Markt. Die Charterraten für Containerschiffe befinden sich in vielen Bereichen auf sehr niedrigem Niveau. Darunter leiden Reeder und Schiffsfonds, die mit dem Betrieb der Schiffe ihr Geld verdienen. Nach Angaben von Alphaliner werden allein in dieser Woche Schiffe mit zusammen 30.000 Stellplätzen zu Wasser gelassen. Damit wird die Flotte im ersten Halbjahr um 802.000 Stellplätze gewachsen sein, also etwa um 5 Prozent der Gesamtkapazität. Allerdings macht der Branchendienst darauf aufmerksam, dass sich die Expansion ein wenig verlangsamt hat. Wurde der Schritt von 14 Millionen TEU auf 15 Millionen TEU zwischen August 2010 und Juni 2011 innerhalb von zehn Monaten geschafft, so liegen zwischen den 15 Millionen und den 16 Millionen zwölf Monate. Von 13 Millionen TEU auf 14 Millionen TEU ging es sogar innerhalb von nur neun Monaten, so Alphaliner (siehe Grafik links). Das langsamere Wachstum sei auf eine stärkere Verschrottungstätigkeit zurückzuführen, schreiben die Fachleute.

Maersk Line’s Triple-E Class Joins the World’s Top 100 Sustainable Solutions Maersk Line’s Triple-E class joins the ranks of the world’s top 100 sustainable solutions. The Sustainia100 award was announced at Rio+20. At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), Maersk Line’s Triple-E class was chosen for a prestigious list of innovative solutions that drive sustainable development. Standing for Economy of scale, Energy efficiency, and Environmentally improved, the Triple-E ships set a new standard for how world trade is conducted. The ships will reduce CO2 emissions by more than 50% per container moved compared to the current industry averages on the Asia-Europe trade. “We need to make more people aware of these solutions and inspire more to act. With the Sustainia100 there is no excuse for not choosing a sustainable path to the future” said Gro Harlem Brundtland, former prime minister of Norway, former director general of the World Health Organisation and a member of the Elders Team. Sustainia100 is a complete guide to innovative and scalable solutions to create desirable and sustainable societies. The solutions are gathered from 56 countries and businesses and represent sustainable innovation in areas such as city planning, energy, fashion, water and waste management, high-tech and transportation. “We are thrilled that Maersk Line’s next generation ships have been named to Sustainia100. Our ambition to deliver solutions for economic growth in a low carbon economy is a strong driver for innovation in ship design” said John Kornerup Bang, Lead Advisor on Climate & Environment in the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group. The first Triple-E ships will be deployed in 2013. They come with a Cradle to Cradle passport for high quality recycling

Denmark: Maersk Line Announces Restructuring of Its Centre Organisation

Posted on Jun 1st, 2012 with tags Announces, Centre, Denmark, europe, Maersk Line, News by topic, Organisation, Restructuring.

Today, Maersk Line announced that it will restructure its global HQ function (Centre). The new Centre organisation will be presented on 12 June and be initiated immediately thereafter. It is expected that a consequence of the new organisation is a reduction of the number of positions in Centre by approximately 400, hereof 250 in Copenhagen.

The new Centre organisation follows the substantial changes Maersk Line has made to its global organisation (non-Centre) since 2008. This included de-layering, off-shoring of work to shared service centres, simplification of processes and empowering the frontline. The results have been good, but more can be done, and Maersk Line is now taking the next step making its Centre organisation more agile in order to strengthen Maersk Line’s focus on customers and markets.

A key objective of the new Centre organisation is faster decision making. Furthermore, execution and service tasks currently in Centre will be moved closer to the customers in Maersk Line’s country offices in the global organisation as well as its shared service centres.

“We want to build a successful business that consistently delivers acceptable returns to its shareholders. This requires that we challenge ourselves to have as efficient an organisation as possible,” says Søren Skou.

The review of the Centre organisation was initiated in March this year. Objective has been to simplify and focus the Centre, which has led to 400 fewer positions. An Employee Consultation Committee will be established, which Maersk Line will consult about the expected redundancies as also required by Danish legislation.

Maersk Line employs 25,000 people, including 2,200 in Centre. Centre locations include offices in Copenhagen, London, Singapore, Mumbai, Pune, and Manila.
