OMAN Container Line (OCL), the container shipping arm of Oman Shipping Company (OSC), is expanding the port rotation of its Gulf Express Service (GEX) by adding a call at Port Sultan Qaboos.

This fixed-day weekly service that was initially launched in February of this year connects Salalah and Jebel Ali using the 1,730-TEU Altonia.

From May 19, the GEX will call at Port Sultan Qaboos every Saturday. The service currently calls at Salalah every Thursday and Jebel Ali every Sunday.

The company said in a statement that the "natural extension" of this service is intended to create "for the first time a common user container feeder service between shipping lines offering international transshipment connections in Salalah and the Muscat market."

OCL is a regional feeder operator and fully-owned subsidiary of Oman Shipping Company, which is in turn owned by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman through the Ministry of Finance (80 per cent) and Oman Oil Company SAOC (20 per cent).

MALAYSIAN carrier MISC Berhad's decision to quit the container business to focus on its bulk and energy operations late last year has seen a gradual withdrawal of its vessels from New Zealand's Port of Otago.

Since the port received the carrier's first vessel, its fleet size numbered 30 containerships, on a short-lived south east Asia service of just over a year ending 2001, it continued to visit through a joint south east Asia to New Zealand service with Maersk.

The Kuala Lumpur-based carrier has accumulated losses of US$789 million over three years due to capacity oversupply and a depressed freight rate environment, not including a further $400 million loss forecast from pull-outs from charters and disposable assets. It aims to pull out from trade alliances, charters and vessel agreements by June 30.

Of the four vessels which first berthed at Otago on its own service and one jointly shared with Maersk, phasing out began in January. These vessels of 1,234-TEU capacity, the Bunga Delima and sister ship Bunga Bidara raised $3.7 million to Indian shipbreakers in Alang.

GERMANISCHER LLOYD (GL), a leading ship classification society, is urging shipping companies to invest more in applying more new maritime-related information technologies to help shipowners and operators reduce operating costs and enhance competitiveness.

"There is a great deal of potential for the shipping sector to invest more into maritime software," said GL software vice president Torsten Buessow at a GL Exchange Forum held in Singapore. "The sector's investment level is just one fifth of that of the oil and gas industry."

New York's MarineLink reported that only 0.7 per cent of investments in new vessels are used to cover the cost of new software installations. Yet experts from Germanischer Lloyd believe equipping more ships with the latest maritime software applications could help offset rising fuel prices and operating costs, which in turn can improve the industry's profit margins.

"Looking at ship operating costs we see a steady, rising trend," Dr Buessow said. He estimates that the operating costs for 3,000- to 4,000-TEU vessels, Panamax dry bulk carriers and 15,000-20,000 dwt general cargo vessels will grow 13 per cent between 2010 and 2014.

The company said its hull integrity management tool, GL HullManager, improves management efficiency by creating a 3D model of the ship, which can be linked to visual inspections and thickness measurement. In the end, the software helps reduce a vessel's inspection and repair costs.

CHICAGO's O'Hare International Airport is to build a US$200 million air cargo centre of which more than half will be paid by the developer and the remaining $62 million in airport revenues, said city mayor's office.

The 76,200-square-metre facility will create 10,000 jobs in the area of which initially 1,200 will be construction jobs and 1,200 permanent on-stage jobs.

The developer Aeroterm signed a 35-year agreement at investment of $130 million based on its belief in "pent up demand" of import and export. The centre is expected to provide $600 million in benefits. It aims to complete phase 1 by 2013 with full completion by 2020 to include runway expansion and overall modernisation.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said final approval for the city-owned 65 acres of land allocated for the facility is required by City Council, but he is confident the project will be given the go-ahead. "This was the time to actually take it off the shelf and freshen it up."

The cargo focus will not hamper its numerous passenger services due to night flights and will increase revenues for the airport by "landing and ramp fees on an almost 24-hours-a-day basis", said BB&T Capital Markets research analyst Kevin Sterling, reported The Associated Press.

In the first three months of 2012 the Port of Hamburg achieved total throughput of 32.6 million tons (+ 3.8 percent). At 2.2 million TEU (20-ft standard containers), throughput on the container handling that predominates in Hamburg as a universal port was 5.2 percent higher than in the first quarter of 2011. Compared to the main ports further West, Hamburg thus gained additional market share and strengthened its position as the Northern European hub for container traffic; Rotterdam’s throughput was down by 3.9 percent, while Antwerp’s increase was comparatively minimal at 0.7 percent.

In the first quarter of 2012 total seaborne cargo throughput in Germany’s largest universal port reached a volume of 32.6 million tons (+ 3.8 percent). The Port of Hamburg performed especially strongly on general cargo throughput and managed a positive result on overall throughput despite some downturns in the bulk goods area.

By comparison with the first quarter of 2011, on general cargo throughput the Port of Hamburg achieved a 7.9 percent advance to 23.1 million tons. Growth here was primarily powered by the strong trend in exports of containerized general cargoes. Here the Port of Hamburg handled export volume of 11.4 million tons in the first three months of the year, representing an increase of 11.1 percent. Europe‘s second largest container port also performed well on imports of containerized general cargoes, with volume of 11.2 million tons representing 5.5 percent growth.

“We are delighted that with a 5.2 percent rise in container throughput in the first quarter, the Port of Hamburg is markedly ahead of the 2.4 percent average growth for the four major ports in the North Range,” comments Claudia Roller, CEO of Port of Hamburg Marketing: “The excellent result in this segment is what triggered the Port of Hamburg’s overall growth in the first quarter of 2012. For the remainder of the year we are reckoning on a further increase in total throughput.”

“We are headed in the right direction and have gained notable market shares. This is indicative for competitiveness of the Port of Hamburg”, stresses Jens Meier, HPA managing director. “Considering container handling figures and the market shares in the northern European Ports range the Port of Hamburg even surpasses forecasts of the 2010 ISL potential analysis.”

In the first quarter of 2012 altogether 1.2 million TEU (- 5.0 percent) were handled in seaborne container traffic with Asia. The Port of Hamburg’s marketing organization assumes that the trend in container volumes in the Asia trade has primarily been influenced since the beginning of the year by reductions in capacity and the cessation of some liner services. “Downturns in the Asia trade are a momentary phenomenon caused by restructuring of various liner services. However, we are expecting new East Asia container liner services in the Port of Hamburg in the course of the first half year,” says Claudia Roller.

The trend in container throughput with the Baltic area in the first quarter of 2012 was very positive. Increases were also achieved in the Europe and America trades. Container traffic with the Baltic region achieved a noteworthy increase of 19.6 percent and reached 531,000 TEU. As the easternmost seaport in the North Range, the Port of Hamburg is the most significant foreign trade hub for foreign trade with the Baltic region: a high proportion of the cargoes exchanged between the countries of Northern & Eastern Europe and overseas is routed in the transhipment trade by feedership via the Port of Hamburg. In the Baltic region, Russia and Finland are the Port of Hamburg’s most significant trading partners for seaborne container transport. With around 151 sailings per week, Hamburg continues to offer the densest network anywhere in Northern Europe of feeder links with the entire Baltic region. In addition, new feeder service to the United Kingdom and the Scandinavian countries produced a distinct advance with 41,000 TEU (+ 37.6 percent) and 232,000 TEU (+ 8.1 percent), respectively. Altogether, in the first quarter the Port of Hamburg‘s European container trades grew by 18.4 percent to 694,000 TEU.

With 279,000 TEU, in the first three months the America trade as a whole achieved distinct growth of 33.3 percent. The primary reasons for this were new and extended liner services from Canada via the USA and on to South America. These produced growth in container throughput for the Port of Hamburg. At 55,000 TEU (- 6.2 percent) and 8,000 TEU (- 9.7 percent), respectively, in the first quarter totals for the Africa and Australia/Pacific container trades were both lower.

Bulk cargo throughput in the first quarter of 2012 at 9.5 million tons (- 4.8 percent) was below the previous year‘s. Whereas grab cargo throughput in the first three months of 2012 at 4.8 million tons was 5.0 percent up on 2011, throughput of both liquid and suction cargoes was down. Among grab cargoes, the Port of Hamburg performed especially strongly on ore imports, which were 27 percent higher at 2.3 million tons. First-quarter throughput of liquid cargoes at 3.1 million tons was down by 14.8 percent on the previous year. Downturns in crude oil imports and in both exports and imports of oil products could not be offset by an 11.9 percent advance in throughput of other liquid cargoes on the import side. In the first quarter of 2012 suction cargo throughput at 1.5 million tons remained 9.7 percent below the comparable figure in the previous year. The main reason for this was the lower volume of grain and oil fruit imports, which caused a 10.4 percent downturn in the total quantity imported to 877,000 tons. The remaining suction goods products, mainly feedstuffs, although producing an excellent result with 33 percent growth, did not suffice with total throughput of 60,000 tons to offset the reduced imports of grain and oil fruits. At 637,000 tons, exports of grain and all other suction cargoes were down by 8.7 percent in the first three months.

At 528,000 tons, throughput of non-containerized general cargoes was 6.1 percent lower than in the previous year. One cause of this was the downturn in imports of conventionally stowed citrus fruits (- 39.7 percent) to 74,000 tons. Progressive containerization of general cargo throughput in the Port of Hamburg is the reason for this trend: nowadays a high proportion of the citrus fruit handled here reaches the port in reefer containers. It was primarily vehicle exports that ensured a positive trend in the general cargo area. At 133,000 tons, throughput of these climbed by an impressive 21 percent. With heavy cargoes and project shipments, in the first quarter of 2012 the Port of Hamburg remains on a growth curve, with exports up by 21.8 percent at 142,000 tons and imports 13.6 percent higher at 38,000 tons.

A number of challenges lie in front of the roll-on/roll-off industry, but how well equipped are businesses to cope with the European Commission’s new environmental regulations? That’s just one of the areas that will be discussed at this year’s RORO event, which is being held in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 22-24 May.

The European Commission’s (EC) announcement that operators will be forced to cut shipping fuel sulphur content on short sea routes in northern European waters to 0.1% from 2015, has received mixed reaction from some of the biggest ro-ro providers.

The debate as to whether it’s a positive or negative move is likely to go on for some time, with some seeing it as a threat that will lower competitiveness against other modes, whilst others see the positives in terms of the environmental benefits. However, one thing is clear, it is unlikely that the EC will backtrack on the proposals that it passed last year.

Over the coming years, ro-ro operators across Europe will have to embrace new, innovative ways of working in order to meet the EC’s environmental regulations. Shipping lines will be looking at innovative ways of reducing sulphur emissions and fuel consumption, whilst other stakeholders will be examining their own operations. Which is why this year’s RORO event, held in Gothenburg, Sweden, couldn’t come at a better time.

Sophie Ahmed, Event Director of RORO, commented: “There is plenty of scope for innovation and originality in the ro-ro industry and these are the exact issues and topics we will be focusing on at RORO this year. The regulation changes present a huge challenge to the sector and I’m looking forward to the conference sessions which will create a dialogue on how sustainability can be improved, both through existing means and those that are around the corner. I am also expecting the exhibition to be extremely busy this year, with operators searching for the latest innovations that will help reduce emissions and improve efficiency.”

Debating the way forward
However, the environment is not the only item on the agenda at this year’s RORO. For the first time in its history, RORO will feature free-to-attend conference sessions throughout the three-day event, covering the most important issues affecting the industry.

Running on the exhibition floor, visitors including car manufacturers, shippers, port and terminal operators and shipping lines, will be able to hear from a host of leading experts working within the ro-ro industry.

Mike Garratt, Managing Director of MDS Transmodal, who is regarded as one of the most informed observers of the rail, shipping and ports industries in the UK, will kick-off the new-look RORO conference sessions on 22 May. During his presentation, he will offer visitors a unique insight into the global ro-ro industry and examine future trends, opportunities and threats.

Following Mr Garratt’s presentation, key territories, including the Mediterranean, Asia, North Sea, UK and Ireland, will be analysed in detail. Experts from each region will present their views on the current state of their market and offer insights into what the future holds.

Port infrastructure is also on the agenda for day one at RORO. As the shipping industry changes, ports will be challenged to improve their operations, with operators looking for the best and most efficient services. Two important figures in the ro-ro industry, Dr Gernot Tesch, Managing Director of Scandlines Deutschland, and Lennart Scensson, Executive Vice-President – Port and Logistics at TTS Group ASA, will explain what rolling cargo shipping lines currently require from terminals and how their demands might change in the future. The sessions will be essential for ports looking to secure their long-term futures.

As part of a special ‘green ro-ro’ session on day two, Sara Sköld, an environmental specialist at the Clean Shipping Project – which was founded in order to increase focus on the environmental issues of shipping – will speak about the latest ‘green’ initiatives being rolled out across Europe. She will be joined by Åsa Wilske, an Environment Manager at the Port of Gothenburg, who will discuss a range of topics, including onshore power supply, and explain the terminal’s latest ‘green’ practices.

On day three of RORO, a special conference session will run throughout the morning, devoted to the ro-ro industry in the Baltic states. Organised by the Baltic Transport Journal, visitors will be able to hear from a number of experts based in the region, who will discuss the most important issues facing the operators over the next few years.

Finally, as part of the all-encompassing programme, visitors will also be able to hear from a leading figure in the shipping industry on how operators can best combine passengers and freight.

See, show and discuss, one-to-one

In addition to being the place to learn more about the industry, RORO is recognised as the place to do business in the ro-ro industry. During the last edition of the event, visitors from more than 52 countries were present on the exhibition floor. This year, companies from across Europe will be displaying their latest products and services to buyers from car manufacturers, freight forwarders, terminal operators, shipping lines and road hauliers.

Two of the major ro-ro shipping lines, Wallenius Wilhelmsen and Stena RoRo, have confirmed their presence at the event, their involvement further establishes RORO as  the industry’s most important meeting place.

In addition, TTS Marine AB, Wagenborg Shipping, Godby Shipping, Finnish Ro-Ro Owners, BLG Logistics Group, Seaports of Niedersachsen and Ockero Maritime Centre. Whilst, the Port of Gothenberg, Port Authority of Vigo, Port of Bilbao Authority, Port Of Hamina/Kotka, Port of Hanko and Port Of Helsinki will be present to highlight their plans for the future to visitors.

Getting more from RORO

To ensure that visitors get the most from their visit to RORO, the event’s organiser has announced that a special training zone will run on the exhibition floor on all three days. Visitors looking to develop their skills and knowledge will be able to discuss their requirements with leading training providers.

Networking opportunities at RORO have always been exceptional and this year’s show in Gothenburg will be no different. The event will once again feature a networking bar, where exhibitors, speakers and VIPs will be able to mingle for an extra hour after the event has closed to discuss ideas and opportunities.

Sophie Ahmed said: “Ro-ro short-sea shipping will play a hugely important role in future sustainable supply chains across Europe. Our aim, through the event and the blog, is to provide businesses with all the tools they need to plan for a successful future.

“We’re looking forward to this year’s RORO, which I’m sure will be one of the most informative in the event’s long history.”
