MAERSK SETS 2050 ZERO-CO2 TARGET
Friday, 21 December 2018 01:35

Maersk has committed to carbon neutrality by 2050.

According to the company, carbon-neutral vessels must be commercially viable by 2030 and acceleration in new innovations is required to achieve the goal.

 

To date, Maersk has already reduced its relative CO2 emissions by 46% compared to 2007, approximately 9% more than the industry average. The shipping line said that efficiency improvements on the current fossil-based technology can only keep shipping emissions at current levels but not significantly reduce or eliminate them.

 

“The only possible way to achieve the so-much-needed decarbonization in our industry is by fully transforming to new carbon-neutral fuels and supply chains,” said Søren Toft, chief operating officer of A.P. Moller - Maersk.

 

The container shipping industry presents different problems and therefore calls for different solutions than the automotive, aviation and rail industries. Given the 20-25-year lifetime of a vessel, Maersk called for strong industry involvement and collaboration for the development of a new type of sustainable container vessel.

 

“The next five to 10 years are going to be crucial,” said Toft. “We will invest significant resources for innovation and fleet technology to improve the technical and financial viability of decarbonized solutions. Over the last four years, we have invested around US$1 billion and engaged 50+ engineers each year in developing and deploying energy efficient solutions. Going forward we cannot do this alone.”

 

Maersk plans to initiate open and collaborative dialogue with all possible parties in 2019 to tackle climate change, one of the most important issues facing the world.

Cma Cgm, Hapag-Lloyd, Maersk, Msc And One To Create Association For Digitization And Standardization
Friday, 14 December 2018 01:07

A.P. Moller – Maersk, CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd, MSC and Ocean Network Express have begun discussions to establish a container shipping association with the purpose of promoting digitalization, standardization and interoperability in the industry.

 

 

Information technology executives from the five shipping lines are exploring the creation of common IT standards that will be openly available and free of charge for all stakeholders of the wider container shipping industry.

 

 

“It’s in the customers’ and all stakeholders’ best interest, if container shipping companies operate with a common set of information technology standards,” said André Simha, chief information officer of MSC and spokesperson of the group. “We are striving for less red tape and better transparency. The timing is right, as emerging technologies create new customer-friendly opportunities. Together, we gain traction in delivering technological breakthroughs and services to our customers compared to working in our own closed silos.”

 

 

Even though there are already multiple organizations and associations within the shipping industry, the members of the group identified a need for a neutral and non-profit body for ocean carriers that is driven by delivering benefits for the industry and its stakeholders.

 

 

“Digital is key for A.P. Moller – Maersk in delivering on our strategy to become an integrated container logistics company that offers simple, end-to-end services with seamless customer experience,” said Adam Banks, chief technology and information officer of A.P. Moller – Maersk. “A joint set of technical standards will ensure interoperability and enable all parties to concentrate on value-adding differentiation as we move the container shipping industry towards further digitalization. Ultimately this will benefit all parties in our customers’ supply chains.”

 

 

The association has no intent of developing or operating any digital platform, but aims to ensure interoperability through standardization. The association will also not discuss any commercial or operational matters.

 

 

“CMA CGM is always looking for best practices and standards to support the innovation and digital strategy of the company,” said Rajesh Krishnamurthy, executive vice president of IT and transformations at CMA CGM. “Being a founding member will enable us to work together on setting the standards for digitization of the entire industry.”

 

 

All ocean carriers are invited to join the association once it is established.

Hapag-Lloyd welcomes the creation of this association as we firmly believe that the challenges 

of the future can only be tackled with a common approach,” said Martin Gnass, managing director of information technology at Hapag-Lloyd.

 

 

The association is scheduled to begin operating from early 2019, subject to regulatory requirements.

 

“Ocean Network Express sees a wave of innovation technology development in shipping and logistics industry over the recent years which can bring good opportunity to the whole industry for digital transformation,” said Noriaki Yamaga, managing director of corporate and innovation at Ocean Network Express. “But, at the same time, we're a little bit cautious about adopting new technology by individual company since there is no common standard in the market which may be ending up with re-integrating work among all stakeholders in the supply chain. With this mind, we feel it would be necessary to do some discussion and collaboration on the area of new technology and innovation to establish common IT standard and governance for the industry to streamline and digitize shipping process in a modern way. In the end, we believe this style of collaboration can bring value and opportunity to our customers as well as logistics companies, leading shipping and logistics industry to a new ecosystem of digital supply chain.”

 

 

 

 

 
GPA on track for 4.3M TEUs
Thursday, 13 December 2018 01:13

Continued strength expected in new year

At the Port of Savannah's Garden City Terminal, 146 rubber-tired gantry cranes work the stacks at the nation's largest single-operator container terminal. The Port of Savannah has moved 4 million twenty-foot equivalent container units in the first 11 months of the calendar year.

SAVANNAH, Ga., Dec. 10, 2018 -The Georgia Ports Authority is on track to reach 4.36 million twenty-foot equivalent container units handled in 2018, its highest volumes ever in a calendar year. The performance would mean an increase of 8 percent (312,385 TEUs) compared to CY2017.

 

“Cargo expansion related to growth in inland markets, as well as increased demand right here in the U.S. Southeast have shifted the global logistics arena in Savannah’s favor, with more port users choosing to serve their customers via Georgia’s deepwater terminals,” said GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch.

 

For Calendar Year 2018 through November, the Port of Savannah has handled 4 million twenty-foot equivalent container units, up from 3.72 million over the same period last year. Containers currently booked for December will add approximately 362,000 TEUs to the annual total.

 

The Georgia Ports Authority achieved 11.4 percent growth in container volumes in November, handling 344,506 TEUs last month, an increase of 35,359. With 151 vessel calls at the container port, Garden City Terminal averaged 1,322 container moves per vessel in November.

 

It is the 25th consecutive month the GPA has posted positive year-over-year growth.

 

“Every additional container we move means new business in trucking, rail and warehousing,” said GPA Board Chairman Jimmy Allgood. “The ripple effect of the success at Georgia’s ports means additional jobs and income coming to our neighbors and communities across the state.”

 

Port officials predict brisk container business at the Port of Savannah moving into 2019. Several vessel calls were rescheduled from the end of November to the beginning of December. Combined with planned December trade, this should result in strong numbers to round out the year. Additionally, many carriers are expected to make above-average cargo exchanges in January ahead of the Chinese New Year celebration, which begins on Feb. 5.

 

November was also a busy month for trade in autos and heavy machinery. The GPA handled 59,297 units of Roll-on/Roll-off cargo last month, an increase of 12,135 units, or 25.7 percent. Colonel’s Island Terminal at the Port of Brunswick led the growth, adding nearly 12,000 vehicles to its total from November 2017.

 

“With the largest terminals in the nation for both container and Ro/Ro cargo, the ports of Savannah and Brunswick have a greater capacity to grow along with our customers,” Lynch said. “The result is superior reliability as port users build up their businesses to satisfy increasing demand across the Eastern U.S.”
