Good news, bad news ‘and even worse news’ from congested Euro ports

The knock-on effects of the blockage of the Suez Canal is likely to impact North Europe supply chains until June.
Container hub ports that used the week-long lull from ship arrival delays to prepare their landside facilities for the box onslaught are now “full to the brim”, according to a carrier source.
Container lines have discharged Asian imports wherever they can to turn ships around in North Europe as quickly as possible …

Ever Given: arrest and GA – what happens to vessel and cargo next?

The Suez Canal Authority’s decision to arrest the Ever Given, following the six-day closure of the waterway, as leverage for its $916m insurance claim against the vessel owner, is likely to further delay the General Average process.
Jose Guerrero, president of independent claims consultancy Virtual Claims, told The Loadstar one of the key elements of GA was that “the goods and the ship must successfully reach the destination, otherwise, there is no …

Against the odds: Up in (northern) lights – Part 2

From “Whatever (and whichever) canal floats your boat – Part 1” to my coverage today is a small, albeit meaningful, step.
Here it goes.
Russia’s northern trade route 
A brief recap, as I argued yesterday towards the end of my post:
“Russia has been touting its Northern Trade Route, an Arctic Ocean route to Asia, since the Ever Given issue.
Claiming to trim 4,000 nautical miles and 15 days off the southern alternative via the …

Against the odds: Whatever (and whichever canal) floats your boat – Part 1 

I may have been a little salty towards Maersk’s Mr. Skou in my last spoiler alert column after he stated something supply chain practitioners and logisticians worth their pay packet – which in most instances is much smaller than his – would have been contemplating several moons ago. 
I just expected a leader of one of the world’s largest shipping lines to offer up something more visionary or insightful. For example, …

Anger as SCA arrests Ever Given and submits $916m compensation claim

The Suez Canal Authority yesterday formally arrested the Ever Given.
An Egyptian judge granted permission for the SCA to seize the vessel after it lodged a $916m compensation claim against its Japanese vessel owner, Shoe Kisen.
The SCA says it intends to maintain the vessel’s arrest until the claim is paid, a position that has caused fury among the ship’s insurers and ship managers, and led charterer Evergreen to investigate whether it could …

Ports around the globe brace for massive post-Suez cargo logjams

As much as 1.9m teu of cargo is expected to be caught up in the Suez Canal-driven supply chain congestion shortly to engulf many of the world’s largest container ports.
According to new data from supply chain visibility platform Project44, the recent canal blockage has led to a cumulative delay to shipping fleets of 1,072 days.
And the largest ports are expected to bear the brunt of a short-term surge in ship …

Cargo owners still ‘in the dark’ as Ever Given compensation row heats up

The stand-off between the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) and the Japanese owner of the 20,124 teu Ever Given over compensation has entered a third week.
Meanwhile, European cargo owners are still none the wiser as to when and where their containers will be made available, or the percentage of the value of their cargo that will be required by the average adjusters in the form of an insurance bond or cash …

‘The sky’s the limit’ for charter rates – that’s if you can find a ship

Containership owners are instructing their brokers not to entertain fixture offers of less than 12 months, and some are insisting on minimum two-year charters.
The charter market boxship boom that began in the larger sizes has filtered through to the smallest sectors, with Alphaliner reporting on several 24-month employments for vessels under 1,000 teu.
The consultant noted the new fixture of the 803 teu Jork Ruler by Peel Ports-owned feeder operator BG …

The lull before the ‘post-Suez storm’ of vessel arrivals at North Europe ports

The main container ports in North Europe were eerily quiet at the weekend, due to the almost week-long blockage of the Suez Canal by the Ever Given.
But now, an armada of late-running ULCVs is enroute from the Mediterranean, providing an intense challenge for vessel operators to turn ships around as quickly as possible and return them, as well as desperately needed empty equipment, back to Asia.
For example, the 19,273 teu Cosco …
