Get ready ELD in view

SOURCE: AJOT Blogs          Feb 06, 2017

One small change can have an enormous impact. The change in this case is the electronic logging device (ELD) mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in 2015. It goes into effect for commercial motor carriers December 2017, less than 12 months from now. If your business relies on intermodal trucking, it’s important to understand how ELDs may impact your supply chain.

But first, let’s look at the purpose of ELDs and why they’re being mandated. The FMCSA’s goal is to increase safety on the road and strengthen hours-of-service (HOS) compliance. They believe ELDs will help reduce large truck and bus accidents that occur due to driver fatigue from driving long hours or beyond the legal limit. Additionally, ELDs are considered to be a more accurate and efficient method of recording a drivers’ time on the road.

The fact is only 8% of intermodal trucking is handled by large, national firms. The remaining 92% is handled by smaller trucking companies and independent, owner-operator drivers. In many cases, these smaller firms and independents are still logging their miles with paper logs. The transition to ELDs may be a big leap for them for financial and operational reasons. The cost of expensive equipment may be prohibitive and many of these businesses are logging additional miles to stay afloat and support their typically lower base rates. ELDs will simply cut into their current hours of business which will be costly.

The ELD mandate may push these drayage drivers out of the industry which could result in a loss of up to 15% of the drayage capacity

An interesting twist to the ELD mandate is that drivers of vehicles manufactured before 2000 are exempt from the ELD rule. The outcome is drivers are holding onto their 1990s trucks to take advantage of the exemption. But, this raises a possible concern regarding the viability of these trucks and if they will be a weak point for supply chains. Obvious concerns regarding green initiatives are raised as well.

Furthermore, this regulatory change adds to existing challenges in the drayage sector including: port congestion, an aging driver population, and drivers leaving to work in other industries. Together, these factors plus ELDs add up and may create a challenging environment for truck capacity in 2017.

To prepare for ELDs, intermodal trucking firms and owner/operators should prepare early. By getting ahead of this mandate through early implementation of this new technology it gives drivers time to learn and adjust to the new technology.

With ELDs in place it will be important to be fully compliant with all HOS (hours of service) regulations. With a higher level of precision and accuracy there may be an operational impact. To prepare for this impact, firms can develop their network to build driver density to ensure they have the additional capacity in place when ELDs go into effect. This will ensure customers have the service they require for effective supply chain management.

The December 2017 deadline will be here before you know it, so prepare now for ELDs. Determine how they will impact your business and what steps can be taken to address their impact now.

Healthy Orderbook for Reefers

SOURCE: Maritime-Executive.com          By MarEx 2017-01-29 19:04:29

The maritime transport of fresh produce grew faster than the overall world seaborne trade of dry cargoes of all kinds in 2016, a market share of 4.3 percent.

Shipping analyst Dynamar has issued its latest reefer analysis highlighting that the seaborne transport of fresh produce in both conventional reefer ships and refrigerated boxes reached an estimated 108.5 million tons in 2016. This equals some 16,900 laden conventional reefer ships of 500,000-cubic feet average, or 3.65 million filled 40-foot High Cube reefer containers.

The conventional reefer sector went through difficult years, but compared to containers it seems to have arrived into calmer waters when it comes to mergers and takeovers, says Dynamar.

There were just three:
•    Eimskip acquired Nor Lines – including one conventional reefer ship
•    Samskip took full control of Silver Green – seven small conventional reefers (fish)
•    Fruit trader GF Group is to merge with ditto Glenata Food – no ships involved

If considering rates, however, the conventional reefer seas were extremely rough, again. Annual average 2016 Time Charter Equivalents for the 270,000 cft benchmark were the lowest since 2010; at 39 dollar cents for 450,000 cft vessels, they were the worst ever in 10 years.

With the oil price still at a historically low level combined with low scrap prices, demolition of conventional reefer ships dropped to a very low level. Only those vessels unfit for further trading, usually over thirty years old, were scrapped. This was five average 423,000 cft-units in 2015, increasing to ten last year. If the present trend to higher oil prices persists, scrapping may well pick up further again in 2017, says Dynamar.

By the end of 2016, the reefer ship-orderbook counted a relatively healthy sixteen units, with their capacities ranging between 120,000 and 650,000 cft. Most, if not all of the smaller, up to 350,000 cft, units will be for the fisheries trades, including four on order by Seatrade.

Just four vessels are of the largest sizes and assumed all to be for Star Reefer. The Anglo-Norwegian company itself has so far confirmed only two of them of which the first was delivered early in 2017.

“With the average age rising and an overall restricted newbuilding activity, the conventional reefer ship fleet continues its decline, although now slowed somewhat by the current orderbook and the four ships delivered in 2016. Yet, by 2025, ships built before 1995 will reach the average scrapping age of 30, altogether causing the fleet to fall by around 35 percent to some 400 units.”

Running against the trends of previous years, at an estimated 135,000 TEU, the 2016 production of reefer boxes halved compared to 2015. It may be considered a reflection of the signaled weakening reefer trade environment with the single advantage of a lack of equipment shortage, says Dynamar.

Just as the “Dynamar 2016 REEFER Analysis” went to press, Seatrade Chartering announced the January 2017 launch of a new, 10-day frequency, reefer-heavy full container service, styled Meridian. It is the first operation in which it will deploy its purpose-built newbuildings. The first four of an initial order for six have meanwhile been delivered, with the remaining two following shortly. Chartered units will initially complement the planned eight-ship Meridian flotilla.

All six 27,200-dwt ships have a nominal capacity of 2,250 TEU and are fitted with 670 to 770 (the last two) reefer plugs. This means that at a full load of 40-foot High Cube reefer containers filled to their maximum allowed payload, the four 670-plug vessels could still accommodate an additional 120 TEUs of dry cargo. The maximum gross weight of a full load of laden 40-foot High Cubes alone would exceed the deadweight capacity of the two ships with 770 installed plugs.

Meridian FDD (Fast, Direct, Dedicated) will connect 11 ports spread over New Zealand, Peru, U.S., Europe and the South Pacific. The rotation will be as follows: Nelson, Napier, Tauranga, Callao, Paita, Philadelphia, Zeebrugge, Dover, Rotterdam, Dunkirk, Radicatel, before returning via the Panama Canal, Papeete and Noumea back to Nelson. Representing an 80 day-roundtrip, it is quite a world trip, albeit not around.

“Meridian definitely represents a major happening: the world’s largest conventional reefer ship operator goes containers,” says Dynamar. “Ultimately, and as part of the company’s 2020 fleet renewal program, the number of similar container ships should grow to 20, i.e. another 14 to go, therewith replacing most of its current largest conventional vessels.”

However, container ships are not new to Seatrade. At present it operates eight box ships of between 1,100 and 2,500 TEUs with 250 up to 500 plugs in two different services: Agadir (Morocco)-St Petersburg and Caribbean-North Europe, the latter operated by subsidiary StreamLines.

In the last quarter of 2016, 872 reefer heavy ships accepting containers operated 133 different South-North services originating in Latin America, Africa or Australasia. This represented a weekly capacity of 488,000 TEU along with the onboard availability of 71,000 reefer plugs. Apart from some smaller differences, the overall operated capacity, in terms of slots and plugs, remained largely unchanged in comparison to 2015. It is the first time in years this has happened, says Dynamar.

The (theoretical) annualized refrigerated capacity of all these reefer heavy South-North container services can be calculated at a rounded 9.0 billion cft. This compares to the 1.3 billion cft capacity of the current conventional fleet. That is, containers exceed conventional capacity nearly seven-fold.

Seatrade Reefer Chartering continues to be the largest conventional reefership operator with an, albeit reduced fleet of 56 527,500 cft average ships. Baltic Reefer including its subsidiary Cool Carriers comes second with 42 units/590,000 cft average, followed by Lavinia-controlled Frigoship Chartering: 33units/351,000 cft.

In the container segment, measured by reefer plugs on ships operated on the South/North routes, Maersk Line is, again, the number one with 115,000 plugs. MSC comes second with 86,000 devices and Hamburg Süd third with 79,000 connections. Combined, Maersk Line and its future subsidiary Hamburg Süd operate 195,000 reefer plugs on the South/North routes, equal to a relevant share of 36 percent.

Dynamar’s Reefer Analysis highlights over 120 reefer ports in more than 40 countries, detailing data such as main perishables and volumes handled, annual reefer ship calls, total port throughput, number of terminal plugs, draught and more.

TSA Pre✓® travelers do not need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts or light jackets. Last month, 97 percent of TSA Pre✓® passengers got through an expedited screening lane in less than 5 minutes.

“Partnering with 11 additional airlines to offer TSA Pre✓® will significantly increase our trusted traveler population, and reflects our commitment to implement the most effective aviation security,” said TSA Acting Administrator Huban A. Gowadia. “By collaborating with our partners in industry and the aviation community, we will continue to increase the number of airlines participating in TSA Pre✓®, enabling more eligible travelers across the country to experience expedited screening.”

Today, a total of 30 carriers participate in TSA Pre✓®. The other participating airlines are: Aeromexico, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant, American Airlines, Cape Air, Delta Air Lines, Etihad Airways, Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Lufthansa, OneJet, Seaborne Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Sun Country Airlines, United Airlines, Virgin America, and WestJet.

Travelers can apply for TSA Pre✓® for a cost of $85 for five years, or $17 per year. Other passengers who are eligible for TSA Pre✓® include members of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler programs, such as Global Entry and NEXUS for Canadian citizens. TSA Pre✓® is also available for U.S. Armed Forces service members, including those serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, Reserves and National Guard.

As always, TSA continues to incorporate unpredictable security measures, both seen and unseen, throughout the airport. All travelers will be screened, and no individual will be guaranteed expedited screening.

First Cuba to US cargo shipment arrives at Port Everglades

“Tuesday’s shipment of artisanal charcoal from Cuba aboard Crowley’s container ship K Storm, the first truly commercial shipment from a Cuban cooperative to a private U.S. business since the U.S.-Cuba trade embargo was imposed more than 50 years ago, adds another chapter to our company’s long history of trade in the Caribbean Basin. Perhaps more than anything it reflects Crowley’s approach to trade with the Cuba market: patience, passion and persistence. Working with the importer, Crowley executives, including Jay Brickman, vice president, Cuba and government services, helped ensure appropriate, expeditious ocean transport of the cargo to Port Everglades.

“The import shipment today follows 15 years of Crowley’s liner and logistics teams operating within the framework of regulations of both the U.S. and Cuban governments to transport U.S. exports to the island. Crowley was the first U.S. carrier to obtain a license from the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury to provide regularly scheduled common carrier services for licensed cargo from the United States to the Republic of Cuba. Crowley launched its Cuba service in December 2001, becoming the first U.S. carrier to re-enter Cuba in nearly 40 years, and has maintained a regularly scheduled service ever since, currently operating from Port Everglades in Florida.

“The opportunity to participate in the trade was made possible by the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000, and cooperation of the Cuban government. The act authorized OFAC to license the transport of agricultural commodities, medicine, medical devices or other products directly from the U.S. to the Republic of Cuba. The U.S. Department of Commerce issues licenses for the products that can be shipped to Cuba.

“In addition to transporting frozen poultry and a variety of other foodstuffs to the island, Crowley has safely and reliably shipped equipment for major events and projects, such as sporting events and concerts.

“As the United States’ policies with Cuba continue to evolve, Crowley remains at the forefront of trade development between the two countries. This Thursday Crowley looks forward to supporting and participating in the visit of a delegation of officials from the Republic of Cuba at Port Everglades. Crowley is supporting the Port’s effort to responsibly increase economic opportunities, and the discussions with stakeholders provide valuable opportunities to foster trade.”

FWS Suspends ACE Pilot

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) pilot is being suspended as of January 12, 2017. As an interim approach, while FWS continues to work with the trade, those tariff codes currently flagged as “FW2” associated with government agency processing code EDS will remain flagged as FW2 and require the FWS “EDS” Message Set in all cases.
All other tariff codes currently flagged as “FW2” will shift to “FW1” with the ability to file a newly created disclaimer code “E” that is specific to FWS or the EDS. FWS is working with CBP to program the inclusion of the FWS Designated Port Exception Permit. The timeline for implementation is dependent upon revision of the FWS Implementation Guide and CBP programming. FWS and CBP will work with the Commercial Customs Operations Advisory Committee (COAC) to understand the data needs of FWS and the trade’s concerns.
The COAC working group will explore potential alternative methods for FWS to collect data and ensure FWS regulated commodities are accurately declared. At the conclusion of the COAC working group, if not sooner, it is expected that the trade and FWS will have collaborated on a way forward.
