South Korea's two major shipping companies merger and transportation business

April 16, 2019 09:10:48 International Ship Network 


In order to build the scale economy of Korea's shipping industry in the face of the challenge of the global trading environment, South Korea's two major shipping companies, the long Kam Merchant shipping and Xing Ya Shipping (Heung-A), will integrate the transportation business.
The South Korean Ministry of Marine Fisheries (Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries) and the Korea Ocean Business company said that the long Kam Merchant shipping and Hing Ya Line had signed a contract on April 11 to merge its collection operations, And a full merger was completed in October this year.
At present, long Kam Merchant Shipping is the fourth largest shipping company in Korea, with a capacity of 56915TEU; Xing ya shipping is the fifth largest shipping company in Korea, with a capacity of 31345TEU. After the merger, it will become a shipping company with a capacity of 88300TEU, ranking third in South Korea and ranking 19th on a global scale. Most of the two companies are serving in the Asian region.
With effect from April 15, the long Kam Merchant shipping and Hing Asia lines have begun to integrate the collection services and a single entity will be formed in October this year. In order to achieve a smooth transition, the container business of the long Kam merchant ship will be merged in stages-first integrating the Southeast Asian route and increasing the China/Japan route by the end of next year.
The integration of long Kam merchant ships and hing Ya shipping is thought to be a prelude to subsequent integration into modern merchant ships. As early as the beginning of 2017, the long Kam Merchant shipping and Hing Ya line with the modern merchant shipping formed a tripartite cooperation of the "HMM+K2" Alliance, from March 1, 2017, is valid for 2 years of official operation.
It is understood that the long Kam Merchant shipping and Hing Ya line respectively engaged in China, South Korea, Japan and South Korea routes. After cooperation with modern merchant ships, modern merchant ships can make full use of the advantages of Xinghua shipping and long Kam Merchant Shipping on trade routes such as Japan, South Korea and China, and enhance their competitiveness. At the same time, hing ya shipping and long kam Merchant shipping can also reduce operating costs and improve customer service status.

Trade war is the best thing that has happened in container transport in the past few years 20190417 

"Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei Report" according to the British shipping related website, George Youroukos, executive chairman of the Global ship Leasing company, stressed in a container transport topic at Capital Link's International Shipping Forum that the trade war was the best thing that has happened in container transport in the past few years.

George Youroukos stressed that because the characteristics of the shipping industry were cyclical and cyclical markets originated in supply, the trade war had controlled supply and broken the ordering mode of new ships, as the container shipping industry had been in a fluctuating environment over the past few years, particularly with regard to overcapacity. He is not worried about a trade war because he does not believe in the production of goods, which can be transferred from the Far East to the Western Hemisphere, so there is no need to worry about the significant impact of the trade war on the global container transport model.

Howard Finkel, executive vice president of COSCO Shipping (North America), noted that in December last year, US President Trump agreed to leave tariffs on 200 billion of dollars worth of products at a 10 per cent tax rate, while not raising them to 25 per cent during the 90-day tariff break, with large overpayments over the past six months, Long Beach and Los Angeles West Coast ports have seen unprecedented imports as large ships are being redeployed to accommodate the attendant increase in freight traffic as the tariff period approaches.

Cao Deambrosio, managing Partner of Seamax Capital, is also optimistic about the future of the container shipping market. He said the rate and utilization rate of the package has been rising since the beginning of this year, and if demand remains the same, people will not be overly excited about the new orders and should stay in good shape for years to come.

Youroukos added that as the new global low sulphur oil requirement came into effect in 2020, the speed of container transport could be observed to slow down by about one or two sections, and it was stressed that all ships trading in services were expected to slow down. Finkel said on IMO 2020 that the industry needed to agree on the right fuel solution to avoid the potential adverse effects of fuel pollution on ships, and stressed that Cosco planned to meet the new requirements by switching to low-sulfur fuel. Finkel believes that the fuel impact generated by IMO 2020 will be a key factor in the profitability of container scheduled route companies in the 2020.

PIL President: Strong demand growth in Asia region container shipping is expected to benefit 

Mr. Zhang Songsheng SS Teo, President of Taiping Shipping (PIL), said there would be strong economic growth in Southeast Asia over the next few decades and that the container shipping market was expected to benefit from growing demand.

"Trade in the Asian region is bound to continue to grow, which will be the largest and most recent of us," said SS Teo, president of Pacific Shipping, Singapore, "13th session Maritime Lecture", one of the 2019 Singapore Maritime Week Series events, April 8. The most promising market. ”

"By 2035, ASEAN will be the fourth largest market in the world," he said. ASEAN has a population of 650 million, half of whom are under the age of 20. "This means that many resources and goods will flow from resource-rich countries to Asia to meet the needs of the growing middle class in the coming years.

Teo recalled that in the late 1990s, especially after China's accession to the WTO in 2003, economic growth was mainly concentrated in Europe and the trans-Pacific region. The economies of North America and Europe grew by 1% per cent, while container traffic increased by 10-11 times and about 8 times times, respectively.

"Economic growth in regions such as South-East Asia, Africa and Latin America may not lead to volume growth due to different economic structures, but consumption patterns and consumption levels in these emerging markets are changing. "Teo shared the Tao.

"Even in Africa, we are seeing the region slowly industrialize," he said. "For example, PIL is currently transporting processed rubber from West Africa to Asia.

In his view, the growth of regional trade, within the Asian region and even within the African and Latin American regions, would have great potential for development. 

PIL is now focusing its operations on Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and has upgraded its Asian to South American route services to take advantage of the growth in demand in these emerging economies. 

Teo said that for container transport, it is really necessary to take advantage of some quantities such as the demand for goods, economic growth, population size, etc., but these quantities are "variable". This will eventually lead to changes in the size of the deployed vessels, as well as the emergence of different hub ports.

"On the whole, I am optimistic," he said, "just carefully consider the direction of the growth of the goods and fully adapt to the trade development model when deploying fleets and route resources." ”

Can Nigeria step in to assume continental leadership now that South Africa has slipped from top spot

With South Africa going the way of Zimbabwe with the seizure of white farms, there those who are now dusting off old ideas about Nigeria becoming the continent's leading nation.

Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world.

On the face of it, Nigeria (pop 186 million) has what it takes to assume the leadership of Africa. It is the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world. As the world's 20th biggest economy, it overtook South Africa to become Africa's largest economy in 2014.

However, say critics, its regional power and capacity sometimes seem to be stunted by internal and external problems that challenge the substance of any such ideas.

On the surface, Nigeria meets the conditions for qualification as a regional hegemon. At the same time, like any other middle power, Nigeria has strengths and weaknesses that both reinforce and deflate its capacity and willingness to play the role of top dog in Africa.

Over the years, Nigeria has been able to use its economic strength positively within Africa. For instance, at the peak of its economic recovery following a devastating civil war, Nigeria persuaded its neighbours to form the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Then Nigerian leader, General Yakubu Gowon, not only played a pivotal role, but also pledged that his country would be responsible for a full one-third of ECOWAS funding.

First, the oil boom of the 1970s brought about a buoyant economy, then increased the impetus of Nigeria's rising continental prominence. The confident posture of Nigerian leadership and the economic prosperity and its increasing well-being allowed a more rigorous foreign policy.

Nigeria became the world's 12th biggest producer of petroleum and the eighth largest exporter, and has the 10th greatest proven oil reserves and joined the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Oil plays a big role in the Nigerian economy, accounting for 40 per cent of GDP and 80 per cent of state revenues.

Externally, this manifested itself in the leading role Nigeria played during the struggles to secure independence for Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Namibia and Zimbabwe, as well as the dismantling of the apartheid regime in South Africa.

At last, its inability to shake the need for military government to ensure stability ended when Nigeria regained democracy in 1999 with the election General Olusegun Obasanjo, the former military head of state, as the newly elected President of Nigeria.

This ended 32 years of military rule (from 1966 until 1999), excluding the short-lived second republic (between 1979 and 1983) by military dictators who seized power in coups and counter-coups during the period of military juntas before 1999.

Although the elections that brought General Obasanjo to power then and again in 2003 were condemned as unfree and unfair, Nigeria has since shown marked improvements in attempts to tackle government corruption and to hasten development.

While history notes these promising developments, Nigeria still has serious problems that block the road to continental leadership.

First, Nigeria is divided between its simmering Muslim north and predominently Christian south, which is frequently near the boil. Once the Miss World pageant was moved from the nation's new capital Abuja to London after violent protests by Muslims in the northern part of the country that left more than 100 dead and more than 500 injured.

Then rioting erupted after Muslims in the country reacted in anger to comments made by a newspaper reporter. Muslim rioters in Kaduna killed an estimated 105 men, women and children with another 521 injured sent to hospital.

More important, Muslim Boko Haram terrorists have left 12,000 people dead and 8,000 people crippled. Beginning in 2019 they killed six soldiers in an ambush. Benin, Chad, Cameroon and Niger have long since joined Nigeria in a united effort to combat Boko Haram in the aftermath of the Chibok kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls.

In April 2016, over 500 people in 10 villages in predominantly Christian areas in Agatu were murdered by Fulani herdsmen. A visiting Nigerian Senator reported that all the primary and post-primary schools, health centres, churches as well as the police station in the area were destroyed. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) representative said in 20 years of work, she had "never seen such a level of destruction".

While the Nigerian Army has had some success in rescuing a number of Boko Haram kidnap victims, it still far away from eliminating this scourge. Last year, the Nigerian Army killed 15 Boko Haram insurgents and rescued 49 persons in separate encounters between the insurgents and troops throughout the Southern Lake Chad Basin. Kidnap ransom is Boko Haram's primary revenue source.

The Nigerian troops also killed 11 insurgents during a battle in Gamoran Village, while the remaining insurgents were killed escaping. The Nigerian troops rescued four men, 33 women and 16 children from the insurgent bases in the area.

Last October, Islamic Movement of Nigeria activists marched in Abuja to protest the detention of their leader Ibrahim Zakzaky. The group blocked traffic and were met with troops. Rioters threw rocks and the soldiers who fired back killing between 20-40 and wounding 100. The army disputed the figures, saying they only killed three.

In the face of this evidence, one might disqualify Nigeria as fulfilling any grandiose role as continental leader. But on the basis of two points of comparison, it can be said Nigeria's the situation, however bad, is getting better, while South Africa's is getting worse.

South Africa's crimes are fewer in number and represent fewer fatalities, yet they contain an element of racial hatred not present in Nigeria. Nigeria, on the other hand, finds itself in common cause with the forces arrayed against jihadhism worldwide in which it shares a common front with America, Europe, Russia and China, and from which, it can expect support in its campaign to suppress the Muslim terror.

One might dispute the nature of the degree of evils between one and the other, but it is safe to say that South Africa's animus against white is unhelpfully directed against those who provide much, if not most, of the foreign direct investment and development assistance.

Drury: IMO 2020 will bring M & amp; a activities to the shipping industry 20190408 

According to Drury Drewry, a leading British maritime advisory body, Zhou Jia's more vulnerable shipping companies may be subject to mergers and acquisitions due to additional costs added to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) low sulphur fuel regulations.

Drury pointed out that the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 2020 is likely to trigger the bankruptcy of some operators, or lead to more defensive mergers and acquisitions, IMO will inadvertently promote the integration of the shipping industry, so that operators closer to the needs of customers, in order to have sustained profitability. The agency also said that although the increase in demand and freight costs in the last quarter of the year (2018), while helping the container shipping industry to restore about $1.5 billion in profits, the shipping industry has not yet fully recovered from the global financial crisis and damaging losses.

Drury stressed that as the International Maritime Organization's sulphur limitation period became closer, the carrier would inevitably be worried about the overall impact and whether the carrier would be able to deal with the additional associated costs added, such as the cost of installing the scrubber and the additional funding requirements for fuel credits.

The agency's analysis, the last wave of M & amp; A activity from now on, was the merger of COSCO Group and China Shipping, a Japanese operator, and NYK, MOL and Kline in the first quarter of 2018. It is worth noting that the current leading seven shipping companies The actual control of the global container fleet is about three-fourths. Although previous mergers and acquisitions have brought control of the global market to almost a few routes, there is still varying degrees of competition in the marketing section.

Even if the 2020 sulphur limit does stimulate another wave of shipping consolidation, there are still enough shipping companies to block the high concentration of large transactions, which may require some unexpected large mergers and acquisitions to consolidate.

East Asian oil tankers filed for bankruptcy protection

Following the bankruptcy of Hanjin Shipping, another South Korean shipping company, Dong-A, filed for bankruptcy protection in Seoul.

The East Asian tanker was founded in 1968. It had 17 fleet, consisting of 2 bulk carriers, 4 container ships, 8 oil tankers and 3 automobile carriers. It was a well-known brand in the Asian shipping industry. Its court bankruptcy application has attracted many people's surprise and has been profitable in recent years.

The East Asian tanker said that because of strong pressure from the state backed banks, the Korean Industrial Bank and the Korea import and export bank, it had to go bankrupt protection. This shows that the company failed to refinance vehicle operators, forcing them to seek court protection.

In recent weeks, due to the company's efforts to find a non court solution to break the financial deadlock, the East Asian group began selling some of its ships. Last month, it was reported that East Asian tankers had sold two chemical tankers built in 2009.

Trump suddenly withdraw sanctions on Chinese shipping company 

American President Trump policy toward the day appeared in nearly 180-degree turn, lead to chaos and confusion within the Government. 

According to foreign media reports, March 22, US President Trump said that the White House has just announced the withdrawal of a sanction against North Korea. Tweets said: "The US Treasury Department today announced that, in addition to the existing sanctions against North Korea, large-scale implementation of additional sanctions today I have ordered the cancellation of these additional sanctions.!" 

On Twitter Trump issued by White House spokesman Sanders said in a statement, "the president likes North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, he believes these sanctions is not necessary." As for what specific sanctions, she did not say. 

Trump's statement to his aides and administration officials at a loss. Trump referred to is unclear which of the sanctions. However, some government officials quickly interpret that Trump said that on March 21 the US Treasury Department sanctions against two Chinese shipping company, the two companies allegedly helping North Korea and the international community to circumvent US sanctions against North Korea. 

According to documents released by the US Treasury Department, Dalian International Freight Forwarders Ltd. Haibo and Liao Ning Danxing International Freight Co. violation of UN Security Council sanctions resolution on North Korea to help the North Korean maritime activities, to help them "to bypass the sanctions", therefore the US Treasury announced sanctions against these companies. 

US Treasury document published March 21 in that, according to Executive Order No. 13722, US Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) believes Dalian International Freight Co., Ltd. Haibo transport goods to North Korea through the Korean Paeksol trading company. Meanwhile, according to Executive Order No. 13810, OFAC also identified Liao Ning Danxing International Freight Co., Ltd. engaged in the transportation industry in North Korea, "Liao Ning Danxing often use deception that North Korean officials in the EU for the North Korean regime can operate and purchase of goods." 

US Treasury Secretary Mu Nuqin in a statement announcing the sanctions, said the United States believes that "the full implementation of UN Security Council resolutions related to the DPRK is critical to the outcome of the DPRK denuclearization." He said: "The Treasury will continue to implement our sanctions, we once again reiterate that the use of deception to conceal the illegal trade and shipping North Korea will face a huge risk."

US National Security Adviser Bolton also expressed on Twitter: "the shipping industry must take more action to halt North Korea's illegal behavior shipping everyone should pay attention to and review their activities to ensure that North Korea does not participate in acts of evasion of sanctions.." 

To here, in the Department of State, held a regular press conference the afternoon of March 22, Department of State spokesman Geng Shuang said in response, China has always involved towards the implementation of resolutions adopted by the Council scrupulously. He also said that the matter has made solemn representations to the US, urged the US side to stop immediately about the error as to avoid affecting the cooperation on relevant issues.

China's Pearl River Delta invites comparisons to America's Silicon Valley in economic importance

Not so long ago, what a lady bought in shops from Montreal to Melbourne, from Cape Town to Cologne likely came from the largest urbanised centre in the world, a conurbation of dozens of interlocking cities and towns from Hong Kong 70 miles to Guangzhou.

If that boast is no longer true, it is because what is mostly bought in shops touches the human body, namely clothes. While clothing was once made along the banks of the Pearl River, these factories have since moved inland in search of affordable labour or to other regions like Indo-China and Indonesia where such can still be found.

While rising standards of living along Pearl have gradually priced its inhabitants out of low-end markets, they have come to dominate a high-end mass market in the manufacture of electronics and the now globally ubiquitous smart phones.

There are streets in Guangzhou that specialise in selling electronic components to the manufacturers of electric and electronic goods, which include watches, clocks and toys as well as infrastructure for devices in everything from computers to land planes at airports to running computer games. Hence, the more recent comparisons of the Pearl River Delta (PDR) to California's Silicon Valley south of San Francisco.

Much of this output is invested by foreign entities and is geared for the export market. The Pearl River Delta Economic Zone accounts for one third of China's trade value.

Privately-owned enterprises have developed quickly in the zone and are playing a growing role in the region's economy, particularly after the environment for privately-owned enterprises had been relaxed.

The delta, also officially known as the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, is a megalopolis, expected to become a single metropolitan area. Today, it runs along the southern coast of China, which includes Chaoshan, Zhangzhou-Xiamen, Quanzhou-Putian and Fuzhou.

The nine largest cities of the delta had a combined population of 57.15 million at the end of 2013, comprising 53.69 per cent of the provincial population. According to the World Bank, it has become the largest urban area in the world in both area and population.

This region was also the source of much Chinese emigration from the 19th to the mid 20th centuries, including to the Western world, where they formed many Chinatowns. Today, much of the Chinese diaspora in the US, Canada, Australia, Latin America, and much of Southeast Asia traces their ancestry to this region.

The eastern side of the Delta, from Shenzhen, adjacent to Hong Kong to Dongguan next to Guangzhou, is dominated by foreign capital, is the most economically developed.

The western banks of the Pearl from Zhuhai, next to Macau, runs to Jiangmen and Foshan, adjacent to Guangzhou on its western side. This area is invested mostly by domestic private capital. New transport links are expected to open up the underdeveloped western side of the river with the recent opening of the spectacular 50-kilometre (31-mile) Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, expected to further integrate the cities, and facilitate trade within the region.

Until 1985, the banks had been mainly dominated by farms and small rural villages, but after the economy was reformed and opened, a flood of investment turned it into an economic powerhouse.

While Europe and the US lead the world in innovation and Singapore, Japan and Korea continue to lead in Asia, there is a game of catch-up being played at a micro level in the Pearl River Delta.

Shenzhen-Hong Kong is now recognised as the world’s No 2 science and technology cluster, behind Tokyo but ahead of Seoul (No 3) and Silicon Valley (No 4). But China’s top two regions have only two such technology clusters between them (one each) while the two US counterparts collectively have six, or three each.

In the US, these technology hubs within the same region are geographically dispersed - one needs to fly from San Francisco to Los Angeles, from Boston to New York. In contrast, the Pearl River Delta is unique - a mega region which is at the same time a metro area. Distance is compressed by high-speed train and a mega bridge. Such infrastructure connects three mega cities and nearby urban areas into a single metropolitan area of close to 70 million people. Such unparalleled concentration of economic activities facilitates growth and innovation.

Herein lies China’s hope to ascend global league tables to top economic regions. Each Chinese city alone is no match for New York. But the Pearl River Delta - through its connected infrastructure - is China’s New York, San Jose and Los Angeles combined. This combination can unleash its full power if each city plays to its complementary strengths in concert with its counterparts.

Thus, as long as wayward politics does not affect what seems to be developing naturally, then the Pearl River Delta is the area to watch for high-tech product development internationally.

Leadership issues in future trade relations between China and the United States

Two separate, but similarly determined leaders have emerged in China and the United States with the advent of Xi Jinping in Beijing and Donald Trump in Washington. Both are very different from those who preceded them.

To be fair, President Trump started the recent trade war, though President Xi was making what has been perceived as mini, if not micro aggressive moves before that, such as his Belt and Road scheme and the seizure and militarisation of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, contrary to the ruling of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in the Hague.

For his part, President Trump decided to act on long-standing popular trade grievances, against the advice of the Wall Street voices of globalisation that seek to preserve the soaring China trade.

But despite such blandishments, President Trump stuck to his popular China trade policy of "reciprocity or else" despite accusations of "protectionism" from the media and the establishment of his own Republican party.

Japan's Nikkei Asian Review traces the roots of the trouble back to when the United States was an embryonic republic after the American Revolution in an article entitled: "Want to Understand the US-China Trade War? Turn Back the Clock to 1784".

Of course it wasn't the Americans who had the first dispute with China over trade. It was the British.

Then as now, Chinese trade policy was governed by the principle that nothing was allowed unless permitted while the west held that everything was permitted unless forbidden.

Thus, China would only allow the export of tea, while growing the tea plant itself remained a state secret. It would also allow the export of silk, though not the silk worm and the means of production. Chinese furniture too enjoyed a brisk sale in Europe and America in the 18th and 19th centuries. But in exchange the Chinese would only accept silver.

This led to a global imbalance of silver bullion in China's favour until the west found a commodity for which the Chinese would part with their silver, however surreptitiously. And that commodity was opium.

This led to the first Opium War after which the Chinese permitted treaty ports to be established throughout China. Apart from the entirety of the Island of Hong Kong, these consisted of urbanised strips a typically a quarter mile deep and a mile to two miles along the waterfront in major cities, though much larger in the case of Shanghai. Through these treaty ports goods could be bought and sold under the laws of the various western powers that shared the space.

These concessions, centred on a "bund", a Persian word for urbanised embankment, A mid-sized one was in Wuhan, then called Hankow, with Hankou being the name that bund district retains to this day.

In the middle reaches of the Yangtze, the Hankow treaty port area was divided into 40- to 150-acre allotments to the British with biggest and Russia with the smallest, with Germany, France and Japan controlling the other. The US while active in these treaty ports never had a plot of its own, but acquired space from others and possessed some of its finest buildings.

But rising Chinese nationalist sentiment expressed in lethal rioting shut down the weaker treaty ports in the 1920s and '30s. By the 1940s, only the French and Japanese concessions were operating. That was because the occupying power, Japan, was allied with the Germans who had occupied northern France, with a treaty with collaborating southern Vichy France, which was allowed to administer French colonies under Tokyo's protection.

All that was swept away with advent of the Communist regime, which led to China's isolation until the age of Deng Xiaoping through the 1980s, whose "opening up" policies led to 30 years of relative prosperity and galloping GDP growth the like of which the world has never seen.

Most welcomed this development when at last it appeared that China appeared to behave like other co-operative nations. All this culminated in China joining the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in 2001, a move that had it achieve double digit GDP growth for next decade.

But the Nikkei Asian Review article noted "there was also a growing consensus within the US that China’s entry into the WTO heralded every American economic ill from mass unemployment to the devastation of its manufacturing base. There is doubt about Chinese motives and an underlying fear of China as a dangerous geopolitical rival set on world domination."

China disagreed, of course, “such doubts come partly from the shortage of knowledge of China, and partly from some countries advancing their own interests,” countered Xie Fuzhan, president of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

But what was evident to all, not only in America but in Europe too, was that whatever was made locally was now made in China, or increasingly on some ever more distant shore as the Chinese standard of living rose, and ironically priced themselves out of markets they themselves had created. This prompted some production of low-end Wal-Mart consumables to move away from the coast to inland centres where there was still an abundance of affordable labour. Or alternately to Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma and Indonesia. As GDP soared some alleged that China clung to the trading concessions conferred on third world WTO members well after these advantages ceased to be appropriate.

Overall, these developments had their goods and bads. All welcomed the accompanying dramatic reduction in world poverty. India's living standard were rising too as were those in sub-Saharan Africa, where container terminals were popping up, showing that there were enough local consumers to justify the container loads of goods people were now able to buy.

To this we add China's Belt and Road initiative, forging links and plugging holes in supply chains, that not only facilitated imports, but made, or would make possible, local producers gain access to world and regional markets. And with mobile phones as ubiquitous as plastic bottles, e-commerce facilitated the ordering and delivery of such items. In short, there have been many positive developments in the world that are ignored by the fault-finding media.

Nevertheless, many people, albeit not very important people, in America and Europe have been hurt by offshore manufacturing and want to reverse engines on the process. What few unskilled or low-skilled jobs there are also being taken by those streaming in illegally from Latin America the southern border.

Politically, both left and right are divided internally among themselves on immigration. Half the left fears that low-wage immigrants depress the price of their labour, but other leftists see the newcomers as fresh reinforcements in their perrennial battle against the right.

The right is equally divided. Half see the influx as a source of cheap labour they can profitably employ, while the other half sees the newcomers as a cultural threat that will change the character of the country and bring about higher taxes and a reduction of free markets.

After all, before the 1848 American-Mexican War, California, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona were part of Mexico. Today, vast influxes of illegal Latin American immigrants are forming unassimilated enclave communities, and can over time change the language of work and local government from English to Spanish - and perhaps one day seek re-union with Mexico.

Leftwing parties in America have abandoned their old core constituency, the working class, now casting them aside as "privileged whites", or worse still, as "toxic white males". The left now includes, what one would have thought as rightist too-big-fail Wall Street, which now favours greater protective regulation and high compliance costs and crippling fines that discourage SMEs, symbolised as Main Street small business, whose disappearance through mergers and acquisitions enlarges market share for the larger companies.

Right-wing parties favour unrestricted free markets as the way forward and see re-training as the solution to growing working class unemployment without giving much thought to the availability of such high-skilled jobs or the ability of low- or unskilled workers to acquire such skills. The US military using IQ tests long ago found that there were 10 per cent of males that were mentally unfit to occupy even the lowest ranks in the armed forces. Thus in an increasingly complex world it will be hard if not impossible to find useful employment for 10 per cent of the population.

The left, now bereft of much of its working class support, is largely sustained by the vast intelligentsia, and its burgeoning upper ranks of journalists, NGOs, academics, civil servants etc, who also welcome the availability of affordable household servants that unrestricted immigration provides.

While the death of domestic first world manufacturing and unrestricted immigration topped the concerns in western public opinion polls, the media, academic bureaucratic element tend to favour regulations that result in expansion of public sector jobs that immune to the effects of market forces, and jobs that address global warming, which ranks low or not at all in public opinion polls.

Thus, the left and right party establishments, whose policy differences are palpable, but not that distant, and whose willingness to act on matters of genuine public concern, is largely absent except in election speeches, have been found wanting by an electorate that actually wants something done.

Hence the triumph populism and Donald Trump. In one case the phenomenon has united a right-wing father of our acquaintance and his leftwing son. Both now believe that some manufacturing can remain in North America if we try to make it so, and that however incomplete the effort is, it is still worth making. Both, once opposed, now think immigration should be restricted to those who appear likely to contribute to their host countries.

And on another level, they believe that trade with China should be reciprocal, that at the very least, what can be sold in one country should be able to be sold in the other and trade deals should be transparent and apparent to all.

The loss of the House of Representatives by the Republicans was a blow to these populist forces, but it appears that the populist forces, an apparent union between left and right may well endure - at least long enough for politicians to act on matters that the unimportant people care about - even if populist champions and their supporters enrage their respective political establishments on the right and left.

With any luck, both China and America will come to a compromise on trade so the prosperity of one does not lead to the impoverishment of the other.

U.S.-China trade impact land February export container volume minus 12.9% 20190322 

Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei reported that container transport from Asia to the United States fell for the first time in two years in February today (2019), with a total of 10 Asian countries and territories reducing the number of containers destined for the United States by 5.5 per cent, according to the US research firm Descartes Datamyne. Equivalent to a 1,235,684 reduction in TEU.

According to the news, the number of inbound containers from the United States to Asia fell by 4.1 per cent in January to 411,748 TEU, owing to a decline in waste paper and timber imports from mainland China. On the other hand, there has been an increase in the number of containers destined for South Korea and Japan. According to Descartes Datamyne statistics, the number of containers exported by importation from Asia this year, especially in mainland China, has fallen by 12.9 per cent to 729,599 TEU, the first time in six months compared with the same period last year. Industry insiders believe that the impact of the U.S.-China trade war, from this data can be slightly glimpse.

According to Alphaliner, a French maritime consultancy, the Trans-Pacific route will remain unchanged for 2019 years, and this year the shipping company is cautious about the first time since 2009 that the route has not launched a new trans-Pacific route service during the summer shipping season. The agency said the number of weekly route services from Asia to the West coast of the United States would actually be reduced from 37 to 36 since April this year, as for the three shipping unions that share ships, with the intention of retaining existing East Coast services.

According to Sea Intelligence Maritime Consulting, shipping companies stopped 35 times from February to early March this year, including 22 to the West coast of the United States and 13 times to the east coast of the United States, compared with 11 in the same period last year, and the reliability of regular container routes fell to 40 per cent in January.

Alphaliner noted that the Ocean Alliance cancelled 10 Trans-Pacific voyages from March to April this year.

Draft amendment provisions to the import and Export inspection Guidelines section 20190320 

"Reporter Chen Weiqiang/Taipei Report" the Ministry of Finance yesterday (19) announced the amendment of the "Import and export cargo inspection Guidelines" 31st, 33rd, and 33rd bis Draft. In order to prevent the movement of goods in the process, the approved withdrawal of goods for export and the airlift of unsealed goods will also be included in the scope of re-inspection. In order to strengthen export detect, adjust the principle of point-in-hour implementation of instrument inspection for export goods in order to facilitate implementation. Another update on the way of inspection of exported goods, the duration of application for inspection and the requirements for the registration of warehouse managers should be in conjunction with the handling of matters.

The amendment note indicates that, in order to prevent the movement of goods in the process of cargo withdrawal, this amendment is to be approved for the export of goods and air transport of unsealed goods for some reason to complete the scope of application. Also consider that air cargo is not cabinets, paper seals are directly glued to the outer box of goods, invoking the words to amend the text, in order to air transport practical operations. Amendments to article 31st, the export goods that have been declared for release, for the return of Guanti, or for any reason authorized to return the export of goods, its inspectors, such as the identification of containers (objects) original seal integrity, to be exempted from re-inspection, in the case of non-intact containers (goods), shipping non

In order to strengthen the export detect, the instrument will be adjusted to implement the point-in-hour principle, one of the 33rd article by the "Release after shipment" amended to "before release." That is, the inspection of instruments for the export of containers (objects) should be made prior to release, unless necessary.

This new 33rd bis, set out the method of inspection of the export goods, the duration of the application for inspection and the warehouse manager should cooperate with the handling of the matter, the provisions for the inspection of imported goods should be made clear.

 Drury: The implementation of sulfur restriction so that the shipping industry speed, transshipment may slow down 20190321

Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei reported that according to Drury, a leading maritime advisory body in the UK, the speed and trans-shipment of the shipping industry is likely to slow down following the implementation of the International Maritime Organization (I-MO) 2020 Sulphur Restriction order, and the shipper is likely to demand greater transparency as to how the new fuel surcharge mechanism will work in the future , but if they do not make concessions to shipping companies, perhaps future service choices, competition and rates will be exposed to potential risks.

Drury stressed that 2020 will be a critical year for the transport industry, and that if more fuel costs are not recovered from customers (estimated at about 50 per cent), some routes may not be optimistic.

The agency explained that shippers were generally aware that more fuel costs would be paid in the future. For shippers, short-term victories can also quickly turn into losses, a problem that shippers are afraid to face during the negotiation process, as any cost-saving measures at this stage could add to the pressure on the operation of another shipping company and even lead to confusion in the overall supply chain. Predictably, as new fuel is used by shipping company ships, the cost of fuel for shipping companies will vary greatly depending on the type of fuel used.

Drury analysis, the possibility for shipping companies to reduce operating costs, as to whether they can be successful, depends on how to improve the fuel recovery rate, may also promote the use of trans-shipment mode, due to the speed of ship navigation and the extension of the round trip, some shipping companies may thus abandon the rotation port to ensure that the transit time to key locations can be maintained. With the reduction in the number of arrivals, the demand for transhipment and feeder business will increase. If viewed from the point of view of ports and docks, the benefits of using more transshipment will increase the total volume of global port traffic, when the pier requires four container transport, compared with only two stops from Hong Kong to Hong Kong.

Mediterranean shipping, Dafei ship will work together to provide Europe-Oceania Route service 20190319 

"Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei Report" according to the relevant units in mainland China, the Mediterranean Shipping (MSC) and CMACGM shipping companies will join hands to provide unique shipping services for the European-Oceania route.

The news points out that Mediterranean shipping and flying ships will reach a new ship sharing agreement, which targets routes from Europe to the Indian Ocean and Australia. From now (2019) to mid-September, two shipping companies will provide joint maritime services, from Australia via South-East Asia and India and then back to Europe. Alphaliner, the French maritime consultancy, said that with the launch of the joint service, the Flying Ship and Mediterranean shipping would provide the only direct service between Europe and Australia. Its main routes need to be transshipped in Southeast Asia before arriving in Oceania. Of these, 14 cargo ships of about 9,500 TEU will participate in a new joint venture service to replace the Australian Express service of Mediterranean shipping and the new Nordic Mediterranean Oceania Express service of the flying ship. At present, the new Nordic Mediterranean Oceania Express service of the flying Ship operates jointly with Hapag-Lloyd shipping Company.

It is reported that the global size of container shipping continues to expand, this investment in the new joint venture program to serve the ship, will be docked in the Australian port terminal of the largest ship.

South Korean government pushes for merger of modern merchant ships and Sen-Luo merchant ships

It is reported that the South Korean government is working to promote the merger of modern merchant Shipping (HMM) and Mori merchant Shipping (SM line).

Due to the deteriorating operating environment in the shipping industry, the government expects Sen. Merchant Shipping to face a management crisis, and the government seems to have decided that integration will be a solution.

However, not only Sen. Merchant ships and modern merchant ships, the Korean industrial Bank, a major shareholder in modern merchant ships, also takes a negative attitude. As a result, the integration process now faces an obstacle.

The Ministry of Marine Fisheries, which is responsible for promoting the development of the shipping industry, has become an intermediary in the integration of modern merchant ships and Sen-Luo merchant ships.

With the increasingly fierce competition in the global shipping industry and the increasing difficulty of expanding ship capacity (shipbuilding capacity), the Ministry of Civil Aviation believes that medium-sized shipping enterprises may face a management crisis.

However, modern merchant ships and Sen. Merchant ships did not reach a compromise even before two companies sat at the negotiating table.

The management of modern merchant ships has deteriorated to the point where capital erosion can be fully addressed with the support of the government this year. The financial situation has not improved enough to take over another company.

Even if it takes over, it is only interested in the integration of Hanjin Shipping's business network management software and some key employees. Sen. Merchant Shipping acquired the relevant assets by acquiring Hanjin shipping in 2016.

Sen. Merchant Shipping also reportedly responded that it was unhappy with the merger plan because modern merchant ships had never shown any intention of taking over.

Meanwhile, Heo Jeong, an economics professor at Xijiang University, said: "Norway, Finland and Japan are preparing for the shipping industry during the fourth industrial Revolution, including rapid investment in smart ships and self-driving ships. It is even more urgent for governments to open the way to improving high-value technologies, rather than forcing them to expand. ”

Evergreen Shipping enters the second Stage fleet strategy optimization 20190313 

"Reporter Chen Weiqiang/Taipei Report" Evergreen Shipping will enter the second phase of Fleet Strategy optimization this year, Chairman Zhang Zhengji yesterday (12) said, in response to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) requirements from 2020 onwards, the full use of the new regulations on low sulphur oil, the challenge of the ship, The Evergreen Marine Purchase scheme will include 11 20,000 TEU container vessels to be fully delivered by the end of this year, and a total of 20 12,000 TEU container vessels will be gradually added between 2021 and 2020 to replace the existing 5,000 or 8,000 TEU vessels. As the new ship type cargo load larger, more fuel-efficient, and will be equipped with desulfurization equipment, will help enhance the future market competitiveness of evergreen shipping.

Evergreen Group Yesterday (12) held a media spring wine, shipping, aviation, storage and transportation and other business senior executives gathered to explain the 2019 market development and business strategy.

As the international shipping market is still in the United States and China trade war, low sulfur oil and many other uncertainties, for airlines, operating costs are likely to increase. Chairman Zhang Zhengji said that, for the time being, although it is more difficult to achieve a balance between supply and demand in the market this year, it is also a challenge and an opportunity to move towards positive development in terms of overall maritime demand.

With regard to the impact of the new regulations on international seaborne low sulphur oil on airlines, Zhang Zhengji that the definition of specifications and prices in the industry is still different, as opposed to the difference between low sulphur oil and high sulfur oil prices or the fear of 200 US dollars per metric ton, and that the shipping companies will actively phase out old ships in response to market demand.

International container operators in recent years after more than 2-3 years of integration, the number of shipping companies smaller, larger scale, the market share of airlines will increase, but the market demand growth is slow, can increase how much, but also need to see the various shipping companies can provide services. However, the change in the shipping market since spring is more optimistic than originally expected, in which the lower oil prices have helped to reduce the operating costs of shipping and aviation.

Alphaliner: Panamanian container ship Asia under pressure 20190312 

According to relevant units in mainland China, Panamanian container ships scrapped many old ships three years ago and have only just emerged from their predicament at the beginning of the year (2018), the reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei reported. According to Alphaliner, a French maritime advisory body, 4,000 to 5,299 TEU container ships currently have 41 in the spot market, but only 32 previously, a figure that shows the sudden emergence of classic Panamanian container ships, which makes it difficult to find work again, It is feared that shipowners will consider scrapping a shipment of ships.

Hapag-Lloyd CEO: no one but cargo owner should pay the limit on sulfur orders 

With the 2020 sulphur limit coming into effect, shippers have been complaining that the ship company's fuel surcharge is not transparent, in response to which Hapag-Lloyd's chief executive, Rolf Habben Jansen, said at a recent Pan Pacific Shipping Conference (TPM 2019) that the formula was simple: cost of return fuel/ Container volume.

For trans-Pacific routes, for example, factors considered include the number of sailing days in Asia-the United States, fuel consumption, the price per tonne of fuel, and so on.

As for the possibility of new costs being shared between shipping companies and customers, Habben Jansen said that the new cost of a box of 100 dollars is so many that it should not be passed on to customers.

Lars Jensen, chief executive of Seaintellingence Consulting, also expressed great agreement. "It's not about accommodating each other, the bill should be paid for by the cargo owner, and no one else is paying for it," he thought. The sulfur limit will add $10.015 trillion trillion a year to the entire shipping industry, while the total profit for the industry as a whole over the past 7 years has been $8 billion. ”

Habben Jansen expects that by 2020, an estimated 200 of the 5,000 container ships will have scrubbers installed. The remaining 96-97% container ships will burn low sulphur oil or LNG.

Although each shipping company has its own pricing method, Habben Jansen expects Hapag-Lloyd to take the form of a floating BAF, updated every three months to ensure transparency.

On the other hand, Schoren, chief executive of Maersk, said: "We plan to implement a BAF that can be adjusted more flexibly." We are obtaining the shipper's consent to allow the BAF to be adjusted relatively quickly. ”

"At Maersk, a container requires an average of 0.9 tons of fuel, and if a ton of fuel rises by $300 trillion, the cost per container will increase by $270 trillion, which is equivalent to 10% to 15% of the fare," he added. In an unprofitable industry, it's going to cause huge turbulence. ”

On the issue of fuel supply, Habben Jansen expects that there will be sufficient supply of compliant fuel for major routes such as the Trans-Pacific, but some routes with smaller shipments are not good to say.

Another complication is that the conversion process from heavy oil to low-sulfur fuels is long and complex, and if the conversion process is not professionally treated, the engine may be damaged. To address the issue and guarantee sufficient time for proper testing, Hapag-Lloyd will begin the transition in the fourth quarter of this year, Habben Jansen said.

Maersk quits construction of oversized container ship battle 20190311

"Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei Report" according to relevant units in mainland China, in the Pan Pacific Maritime Conference (TPM) held in Long Beach, USA, on the 6th, MAERSK Scott, chief executive of Maersk Shipping (Soren Skou), said The company has no intention of building larger ships and intends to invest its money in other areas in the future and will not invest in mega-container ships.

Scott, who has described mega-container ships as A380 mega-airliners, believes that mega-ships can only dock in a handful of ports around the world. Kris Kosmala, a splash columnist, Cosmara the deep agreement. Cosmara said that as many airports do not deliberately rebuild the airport for the A380, the current global trading situation is rapidly changing, the "new, small" market, is gradually rising in unknown locations, which is a common phenomenon.

Tobias Koenig, director and general manager of Lexington Maritime, pointed out that in the cases faced by Maersk, other container regular shipping companies believed to be aware of it, because the carrier knew that large ships did not help themselves much and that the carrier had to find a way to fill the ship, There is also a need to approach many ports, so it can be expected that the trend of such large ships will not continue. However, some people in the industry take a different view, "Shi Gao does not want to build a large ship, but other container regular route companies may not follow."

Hua Joo Tan, an analyst at Alphaliner, a French maritime consultancy, said it was not entirely appropriate to place the example of the A380 airliner entirely in the maritime world. He stressed that Maersk may have called for a timeout in this big boat race, but that does not mean that other companies will do the same, like the Mediterranean Shipping (MSC) is about to receive a group of 23,000 TEU large ships, he believes that even if the size of the ship for a period of time to maintain a certain level, but the large ship race has not yet ended. Peter Sand, Bim-co's chief shipping analyst, agrees.

Sand said the demand for mega-ships was saturated, and what everyone needed now was to stop ordering new ships and fill existing ones. Sand explained that time would tell the outside world whether other companies would follow in Maersk's footsteps, and Maersk's decision appeared to be to send an invitation letter to shipping companies in the hope that other companies would handle it mutatis mutandis. However, there are shipping analysts revealed that there are shipyards for the design of more than 25,000 TEU of ships in preparation, some chartering companies are still watching.

Container terminal workers at Santos port in Brazil strike again 

According to Brazilian media reports, the main Brazilian port Santos (Santos) loaders have been on strike indefinitely since March 1. 

They objected to a previous court ruling that allowed container terminals to work with 100% of officially contracted workers without having to hire freelancers. The previous legislation stipulated that 25% of the work must be carried out by Ogmo (Labour administration).

Dockers from the Port's Ogmo free labor force erected warning lines outside all 5 major container terminals to curb job losses at the port. Wharf managers said they expected the strike to last at least until March 7 and could continue for longer.

The pier's productivity is likely to fall by about 20% per cent, and he expects some confusion and delays, with many exporters already placing their own crates at the docks, but with no OGMO workers, it will be seen that productivity will be affected in the coming days and delays are inevitable.

Land-lowering enterprise tax rate Taiwan merchants must make a good tax assessment before clearing 20190307

China announced a downgrade of its corporate tax rate on 5th in response to the U.S.-Chinese trade war. In this regard, Mr PwC said that although China's taxman of enterprises had eased more than in the past, Taiwanese businessmen who intended to withdraw from China would still have to make a tax assessment before they could be liquidated, so as not to pass the taxman.

Last year's U.S.-China trade war hit China's economy hard, and in response to the impact of the trade war on China's economy, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said 5th that it would reduce tax rates such as manufacturing from 16 per cent to 13 per cent this year; and reduce transportation, construction and so on from 10 per cent to nine per cent. In addition, it will also reduce the contribution ratio of five insurance one gold at the same time, in order to reduce the personnel burden of enterprises.

Coshiliang, a cross-Strait tax presiding accountant at Prudential United Accounting firm, said that in response to its own rapid economic development, China is constantly carrying out tax reform, from the previous business tax reform VAT, VAT tax reduction, national land tax integration, to last year's personal income tax system significantly renovated, are a continuous tax reform policy, Basically, the context of the continuation of tax reform is to reduce the tax burden of enterprises and individuals, with the aim of promoting enterprise investment and personal consumption.

Coshiliang said that during the two sessions, China's renewed declaration of reducing the burden of corporate tax and five risks should be a recipe for the stagnation of foreign investment in the US-China trade war and the confidence of private consumption that may be associated with it, especially as the United States demands that China contribute to the RMB exchange rate, and the Chinese government's monetary policy against the volatility , in the future environment of Sino-US confrontation, fiscal policy such as tax reduction should be the best tool for the Chinese government.

However, Coshiliang said that after the warming of the U.S.-China trade war last year, the local tax bureau was indeed a lot friendlier, the overall taxman situation is much more relaxed than before, but for enterprises that have decided to leave, in the liquidation must first pass the tax bureau this pass, the tax bureau will first check the last three years of tax, If there is a transfer pricing problem will be traced forward for ten years, there are many Taiwanese enterprise companies are not shut down are stuck in the taxman this pass.

Therefore, Coshiliang suggested that before the liquidation of Taiwan businessmen, we must do a good job of their own tax assessment, hasty liquidation, may have to spend more costs and time to shut down the company.

2019 Refrigerated container shipping market expected to increase by more than 5% 20190306 

"Reporter Chen Weiqiang/Taipei reported that the global refrigerated container shipping market is expected to show outstanding Performance Today (2019), Seacube container leasing companies forecast that the market growth rate is expected to exceed five per cent, exceeding the long margin in the dry bulk market.

According to Seacube analysis, opportunities for growth this year include increased demand for fresh imported food, a shift to leasing, accelerated conversion to containers, new ship construction, container speed, population growth, continued prosperity, and the pharmaceutical industry.

As the proportion of its own and leased containers has changed in recent years, the ratio is about 70 (owned) to 30 (leased), but it has now become about 50:50, showing that leases are more flexible, do not require the capital investment of shipowners, and can reduce costs.

To observe the reasons for the further growth of containers in recent years, including the conversion from air to sea mode and the transfer from bulk to refrigerated containers. If planned under IMO 2020, it will have an adverse impact on the old bulk refrigerated cargo fleet, which will make it possible to speed up the conversion of transport modes into container transport and drive an increase in the demand for refrigeration equipment.

Seacube analysis, as a result of the construction of new vessels in 2019, the delivery time of ships will also need to expand the container fleet and increase the demand for new containers, so the refrigerated container market is expected to become a more flexible and higher growth market, and the new ship configuration may also increase the capacity of additional refrigerators.

Although the operators have strengthened their management fleets, they will also pay close attention to the size of the ship, its versatility and the capacity of the refrigerated socket, which may further increase the demand for equipment.

In addition, with the emergence of inland and anticipated challenges in recent years, the equipment fleet will need to be further expanded to include more replacement time and faster downgrade. Seacube expects that the capacity ratio of the equipment fleet to the ship will increase to be replaced by slower equipment.

China Plus to the United States to buy the United States allies fear of victimization
Latest update: 2019/03/05 11:47

(Central News agency reporter Yun Junjie New York 4th) The Wall Street Journal reported that US President Trumpjo accepted China's more procurement-oriented trade deal, threatening to hit the U.S. Allied economy hard. Barclays Group estimates that Taiwan's exports could lose 20 billion of dollars a year (about $616.6 billion) over the next 6 years.
The Wall Street Journal reported analysis that Beijing's pledge to buy a large number of American products and give in to the auto industry and intellectual property protection is enough to satisfy Mr Chuan, who stresses "America's priority." If the US and China reach a trade deal, America's already competitive industries, such as natural gas, cars and agriculture, could become stronger, at the expense of other countries that are highly dependent on exports.
According to the latest news, in the course of the negotiations, in addition to the commitment to increase the procurement of soybean and other U.S. agricultural products, China Petrochemical Group may also to the United States Energy Exporter Channiel (Cheniere) to buy 18 billion of dollars in liquefied natural gas.
The Wall Street Journal says the losers from the U.S.-China deal will be other big exporters who have invested heavily or intend to invest in liquefied natural gas, including Australia and Canada, both of which are U.S. allies.
In addition, the Asian allies of the United States may also be victimized.
Barclays estimates that U.S. exports to China will surge by $1.35 trillion over the next 6 years if a trade deal is reached, causing Japanese exports to lose 28 billion of dollars a year (3% of Japan's total exports), South Korea's exports to lose 23 billion dollars a year (3.1% of South Korea's total exports), Taiwan's exports lose 20 billion of dollars a year (3.2% of Taiwan's total exports).
Steven Mnuchin, US Treasury secretary, has said China has pledged to Menuchin purchases of $1.2 trillion in U.S. goods and services. The figure is similar to Barclays ' estimate, and China's procurement proposals to 2024 were repeatedly heard during the U.S.-China negotiations.
The report points out that large-scale trade transfers may be difficult in the short term, and that Japanese cars originally to be sold to China may eventually be sold to the United States, but the U.S.-China trade deal could still seriously hurt the United States ' reliance on the Allies ' economy, which checks and balances China's rise in Asia.
In response to China's future efforts to increase exports to the United States, the Ministry of Economy said in December last year that the proportion of energy and agricultural products in Taiwan's imports to China was relatively low and had little impact, but it would still be cautious about the development of the situation and put forward its response at any time. (edit: Liaohan) 1080305

How to view the future situation of the international shipping market? The information provided by the Shanghai International Shipping Research Center to the China Economic Times reporter in the 2019 International container transport market and the international dry bulk Transport market respectively published a four Outlook.

Four perspectives of international dry bulk Cargo Transportation market in 2019 years
Outlook I: the world economic and environmental challenges have intensified, and global trade growth is expected to slow overall.
According to the International Monetary Fund, the world economy will grow by 3.7% in 2019, the same as in 2018. Overall, the future trade growth trend is facing considerable risks, and to a large extent biased towards the downside. The World Trade Organization predicts a 3.7% per 0.2% increase in global trade volume in 2019, down from 2018.
Outlook II: International Dry bulk cargo seaborne trade in various types of performance, continue to be optimistic about emerging markets.
Looking ahead to 2019, the volume of international dry bulk seaborne trade will continue to grow slightly. As China's steel demand weakens, it will reduce demand for imported iron ore. China's coal balance continues, import restrictions will greatly affect the 2019-year import situation. Major emerging markets in Southeast Asia remain bullish, and demand for coal imports is expected to rise further. Import demand for Gao Pin mine in India will continue to grow at a high rate, while coal imports continue to soar. The expansion of production capacity in Southeast Asian steel mills has accelerated, and the decline in Chinese steel exports will continue. Shanghai International Shipping Research Center looks forward to 2019 global seaborne trade volume or will be less than 2.1% growth.
Outlook III: In 2019, capacity growth continued to be higher than the volume growth rate, and the capacity delivery pressure of the promontory type ship increased.
Under the influence of the recovery of new ship orders in early 2017-2018, the pressure of subsequent delivery capacity began to increase further, and the delivery plan increased to 40.49 million tons in 2019. Looking ahead to 2019, Clarkson expects the capacity growth of the international dry bulk carrier to rise slightly to around 2.9%.
Outlook IV: Baltic Dry Bulk Freight Index (BDI) the mean is expected to be slightly reversed to around 1300.
International dry bulk cargo transport market is still in the recovery adjustment stage, emerging market seaborne trade is developing rapidly, but the global dry bulk shipping supply and demand growth rate has begun to mismatch, and China's iron ore import decline will be further increased, coal consumption reduction action gradually implemented, it is expected that the 2019 BDI index mean will be slightly reversed to about 1300 points. As the market concentration of large ships and the proportion of long-term cooperation agreements continue to climb, spot market volatility is further enhanced by it negotiations.
Four perspectives of international Container transport market in 2019 years
Outlook I: The global economic recovery will not gain momentum or weaken.
The risk of a weaker global economic recovery rose in 2019. In particular, some emerging economies have their own economic vulnerabilities highlighted, and the economic and financial situation is grim, becoming an important risk to world economic growth.
Outlook II: Global container Shipping volume growth continues to fall.
The tightening of monetary policy, the global trade environment, geopolitical risks and other uncertain uncertainties in the major developed economies will still have an impact on global trade in 2019. Global container shipping volume or affected by this, the growth rate continues to fall. The Shanghai International Shipping Research Center expects the global container shipping volume to grow by 4.1% in 2019 to 209 million standard box (TEU). Among them, the main route of sea freight growth rate or slow down, some cargo owners in 2018 years of concentrated shipments, on its 2019 maritime volume will have a certain impact. The volume of maritime transport within the region and north and south routes will continue to grow at a relatively fast pace.
Outlook III: Global container capacity growth at a low speed.
Taken together, the total capacity of the container fleet is expected to be 22.604 million TEU in 2019, an increase of 3.3% percentage point.
Prospect Four: The market freight level overall pressure.
The International container transport market is still in the recovery adjustment stage, the industry supply and demand pattern is better, but still faces greater pressure of excess capacity. The total annual value of the 2019 tariff index is expected to be between 750 and 800 points.
According to the route, the regional route freight rate performance or will be better than the main route. The market has overdrawn large-scale transport demand, the first half of 2019 freight pressure downward, the delivery of ultra-large container ships in 2019 will continue to be on the Asia-Europe route, at the same time by the European Economic development growth rate, the rapid development of China-EU class, such as the growth rate will also slow, the Asian and European route freight level overall pressure , although the international manufacturing industry chain can not be easily reversed in the short term, but Southeast Asian economies have begun to undertake some industrial transfer, coupled with the upgrading of Southeast Asian port infrastructure, the future development of Southeast Asian routes or will become a bright spot.

20190223 Taiwan freshmen newspaper Shipping edition

"Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei Report" according to the relevant units in mainland China, the French maritime advisory body Alphaliner said that the Singapore shipping company Taiping Shipping (PIL) will be This (2019) year April 7 full withdrawal from the Asia-Europe shipping market.

Alphaliner believes that even if Taiping Shipping will withdraw from the Asia-Europe market, it will not reduce the volume of business in this market, because other shipping companies will fill the original market share of the company. Some shipping analysts have recently used "cloudy clouds" to describe the development prospects of the Asia-Europe market, arguing that the business of the Asia-Europe market will remain subdued for a long time. Peter Sand, an analyst at the Baltic Shipping Association (BIMCO), stressed that demand in Europe is likely to be below two per cent in the coming years, that European container import cabinets will be hit harder and represent mega-container ships on Asia-Europe routes, making it more difficult to achieve economies of scale in the future. He even predicted that the European shipping market would be "languishing" in 2019.

Shipping analysts said that in the past, Taiping Shipping core business mainly in Asia, Africa and the Middle East market, especially in the Asian region market, but also has a unique advantage, after exiting the Asia-Europe Route market, Taiping Shipping will be more focused on the development of their own advantage routes, perhaps still have the opportunity to create higher profits.

Fort port completed cargo throughput of 1.35 million tons in 2018.

The Hamburg Port, the largest comprehensive port in Germany, delivered a worthwhile answer in 2018 with a total throughput of 135 million 100 thousand tons.

In terms of land transportation, the total volume of Hamburg's 2018 hinterland rail combined transport reached 46 million 800 thousand tons, an increase of 2.7%, and the railway container handling capacity of 2 million 440 thousand standard boxes increased by 4.7%. In 2018, there were more than 60 thousand freight trains totaling about 1 million 600 thousand train carriages to be transported through Hamburg Port Railway. This figure exceeds the record in 2016 and has reached a record high, raising Hamburg Port as the largest rail transport port in Europe. Jens Meier, chief executive of Hamburg Port Authority, said: "the positive growth of port rail transport figures is the result of our joint efforts with our partners over the past few years. We have reason to be proud of this achievement. " A large part of this advantage comes from over 100 airline operators, who are connected to more than more than 1000 seaports in the world through their hamburgers.

At the beginning of the new year, Hamburg opened a good partnership with four new airline suppliers. The four cross the Atlantic container transport providers not only connect the major ports on the east coast of the United States, but also connect the Hamburg Port to Mexico ports through weekly sea routes, "Axel Mattern, chairman of the Hamburg Port Marketing Association, stressed," finalizing the cooperation of the "alliance" airline service providers, and shipping containers of up to 500 thousand TEUs to the Han Dynasty on the Elbe River. Fort port. "

Railway transportation between China and Hamburg

In addition to shipping, China's container traffic has increased significantly. In 2018, China remained the largest trading partner of Hamburg Port. One container per three containers from Hamburg Port is from China. Hamburg Port has a close relationship with China's cargo transportation on the sea, and there are 235 trains on land every week starting from Hamburg and heading for China along the new silk road. "The total volume of container transportation between Hamburg Port and China's maritime and railway containers is about 4 million 800 thousand TEUs, which is far more than other European destinations, and is truly the first port of trade between China and Europe." Mattern said. Hamburg is an important hub for cargo transportation at sea and on the land silk road. "We will continue to strengthen and expand this geographic location advantage for customers in Hamburg ports all over the world," added Mr Ma.

The Hamburg Port Marketing Association saw tremendous growth potential in the land transport logistics along the Silk Road area and the Baltic States. "No European port can provide such diverse direct access to China's maritime and land transportation as Hamburg Port." Mattern stressed that "convenient sea and sea rail, land and sea combined transport make Hamburg the most attractive transit point for trade with China." About 2000 container railway networks, unblocked highway transport lines, trucks and river barges, and air cargo hub airports make Hamburg the world's leading all-around logistics center.

"The dredging of the Elbe River has begun," said Michael Westhagemann, Minister of economics of Hamburg. "We will implement this project as quickly as possible and hope that the project will not be delayed. This year, I will personally inform the customers of our port in Asia, and actively promote the Hamburg Port. Of course, I will also visit our customers in Europe. I would like to thank you for decades of support for the owners of Hamburg harbour. I also want to let them know that Hamburg can provide more services for them. "

River cleaning project starts

Ingo Egloff, director of the Hamburg Port Marketing Association, also pointed out that the construction schemes under the framework of the Elbe river dredging project sent positive signals to the shipping companies and transportation companies at the downstream and outer rivers of the Elbe River. He is pleased that the big shipping alliance has announced that Hamburg will serve as a destination for the Nordic container handling service after the Elbe deepened and widened project is completed. "Dredging works not only allow larger ships to enter Hong Kong more conveniently, but also increase the volume of cargo ships allowed to enter Hong Kong. The deeper draft depth and the better width of the ship have increased the capacity of each ship. Egg Rolf said clearly.

Prepare for the 23000 standard box super large container terminal ship.

Large container ships and large bulk carriers will be able to load more than 18000 tons of cargo into Hamburg Port after deepened the Elbe River. Port and terminal operators have already handled over 21000 large container ships above standard boxes, and are preparing for larger and larger freighters' access and handling. "We have received an entry order for a new generation of giant freighters. We are working hard to make the necessary preparations for the arrival of the 23000 standard container ship to Hamburg Port. Jens Mayer said.

Hamburg, as the largest industrial port in Germany, combines the technological knowledge in logistics with the development of the latest technology, and attaches importance to the policy of sustainable climate development. As for shipowners and logistics companies both at home and abroad, as a North German logistics and shipping center, she is an attractive destination for the future.

Hamburg Harbor, as a comprehensive port with a long history, provides 156 thousand jobs for the big Hamburg area. Port is also an important industrial residence. The total appreciation of 21 billion 800 million euros is of great significance to the German national economy.

Hamburg Port Marketing Association predicts that in 2019 Hamburg will increase significantly in container throughput, reaching 3-4%, and bulk cargo throughput will remain stable.

In terms of container business, the container volume of Taiwan port group maintained a steady growth, reaching fifteen million three hundred and twenty thousand TEU, a record high. Kaohsiung port also grew nearly two hundred thousand TEU against the trend, and broke through TEU container port for five consecutive years.

In the part of the development of the waterfront, Penglai's old port area has been controlled for seventy years, and finally it was completely lifted at the end of seven.

Korean modern merchant Shipping if exiting 2M Alliance threatens to destroy container market freight 20190219 

"Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei Report" according to Lars Jensen, chief executive of Sea Intelligence, a Danish shipping consultancy, the partnership agreement between South Korea's modern merchant Ship (HMM) and the 2M Alliance (including Maersk and MSC) is about to expire in more than a year, In the next six months, it remains to be seen how modern merchant ships will sign a new cooperation agreement with one of the three major alliances, or instead deploy the capacity of their many large ships on their own.

The news points out that modern merchant ships have announced that they want to increase their global market share to seven per cent, and are confident that they will have sufficient volume to deploy their operations calmly, and it is not known whether the shipping company will be able to "do what it says" without working with the 2M Alliance.

Shipping analysts believe that if modern merchant ships finally withdraw from the 2M Alliance and choose to "fight alone", in order to ensure that sufficient cargo volume can be obtained, the reduction of freight rates may be adopted, a strategy that threatens to undermine the stability of freight rates in the container transport market.

The biggest challenge for the shipping industry in the next 5 years: Demand growth retardation 20190219 

"Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei Report" according to relevant units in mainland China, Ryder law Firm (Reed Smith) recently launched a survey on the biggest challenges facing the shipping industry over the next five years, which showed that respondents believed that "slow demand growth" would be the biggest challenge for the shipping industry, accounting for 18.3 per cent, followed by " The trend in industry integration resulted in lower freight costs "(16.7 per cent); the" Response Programme for fuel emission regulations "accounted for 15 per cent, ranking third.

The report notes that as global economic growth slows and demand stabilizes, markets are exposed to the risk of overcapacity, which is bound to have an impact on freight costs and could lead to the elimination of small shipping companies. Andrew Taylor, co-head of the Ryder Global Transportation group, argues that the next five years are likely to be a challenge for the shipping industry, and that companies need to invest heavily in meeting new environmental regulations while remaining competitive. In order to achieve real-time tracking and monitoring of ship performance, enterprises need to expand investment in technology and energy efficiency in the future.

The findings also show that big data analytics and solutions to environmental emissions will be the most far-reaching issues in the next five years, with 40% respondents voting respectively and 20 per cent remaining as distributed books and blockchain technology.

Suspected Monopoly ~ South Korea's two major shipbuilding giants merge to attract market worries 

The merger of the two major shipbuilding giants, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding, will not only create a "Big Mac" with one-fifth of the world's handheld orders, but will also dominate the LNG ship market or push up the price of new shipbuilding for LNG ships, raising concerns among shipowners and questions from rivals.

Clarkson data show that after the merger, Hyundai Heavy Industry and Daewoo Shipbuilding overall handheld order volume will reach 365, 17 million CGT, accounting for more than one-fifth of the world's total handheld orders, market share of up to 21.2%. The combined handheld order volume is much higher than the Jzs shipbuilding (166, 5.25 million CGT) ranked second in the world for handheld orders.

In the LNG ship market, the monopoly situation formed by the merger is more obvious. According to Clarkson's data, Daewoo Shipbuilding LNG ship ranks first in the world for handheld orders, with a total of 38; Hyundai Heavy industry LNG ship holds a total of 14 handheld orders in the world. At the same time, the modern three lakes heavy industry LNG ship, also affiliated with Hyundai Heavy Industries Group, holds a total of 20 handheld orders, ranking third, Hyundai tailings shipbuilding and 1 LNG ships handheld orders.

As a result, after the merger, the 4 shipyard LNG ships will have 73 handheld orders, almost 3 times times the number of Samsung Heavy Industries (27) that currently rank second in the world in terms of handheld orders for LNG ships.

In addition, of the total of 71 LNG ship new ship orders in the world last year, three shipyards of Hyundai Heavy Industries received 25 of them, and Daewoo Shipbuilding received 18. Two companies merged the number of new ship orders to 43, with a market share of nearly 60%.

Vesselsvalue Trading analyst Court Smith said that if the merger of Hyundai Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding, two shipyard LNG ship handheld orders will form a large-scale integration, modern heavy industrial LNG ship handheld order value will double from 6 billion U.S. dollars to 12 billion U.S. dollars.

Shipbuilding people believe that the merger of modern heavy industry and Daewoo Shipbuilding will bring synergies, especially in the field of LNG ships. Japan's shipbuilding industry has been trying to integrate to compete with China and South Korea, but Japanese shipping companies have not been able to match the scale of the merger of Hyundai Heavy Industries-Daewoo Shipbuilding in any case, a Japanese shipyard said.

On the other hand, many shipowners have pointed out that the merger of Hyundai Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding will push up the price of new shipbuilding for LNG ships. According to Clarkson, the price of new shipbuilding for 1 174000 cubic meters of LNG ships is now about $184 million.

The dominance of modern heavy industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding in the LNG ship market is likely to lead to monopolistic disputes. Giant corporate mergers like this will require not only antitrust scrutiny from South Korea, but also antitrust scrutiny in major competitive markets such as China, Japan, Europe and the United States.

For the two shipyards, foreign governments and industry's containment of South Korea's shipbuilding industry is no doubt a big obstacle, should not be underestimated. "South Korea's industrial banks support specific businesses and are causing losses to foreign companies," the U.S. Trade Representative department said in March 2017 through national trade barriers reports.

In fact, South Korea's industrial bank's aid to Daewoo Shipbuilding has sparked strong protests from Japan and the European Union. Last year, the Japanese government took the lead in the EU's involvement in the prosecution of the World Trade Organization (WTO), suing the South Korean government for providing "covert" government subsidy subsidies to its own shipping companies in the name of financing, in violation of WTO regulations, seriously harming the interests of Japanese and EU shipping companies.

"Shipbuilding is a market for more competitive companies around the world," said Professor Park Shangren, Graduate School of Administration at Seoul University in South Korea. Monopoly issues may be magnified in the process of corporate merger review in two companies. "

A new large port in Bangladesh will effectively relieve congestion.

It is understood that Bangladesh is building a large port in order to alleviate the current congestion situation.

European engineering consultant Royal Haskoningdhv, in collaboration with the University of engineering and technology in Bangladesh, was selected as the master planning consultant for the Payra deep sea port development project in South Asian countries.

It is reported that Payra will be the third largest and largest port in Bangladesh. It is designed to increase the required port capacity and allow larger ships to dock here rather than to ports such as Singapore and Colombo.

"This port will become an important link in the economic corridor of Bangladesh, China, India and Burma, and will have a huge impact on Bangladesh's economic development," brigadier general M Jahangir Alam, chairman of Payra Sea Port said yesterday.

Royal HaskoningDHV Eric Smit, director of maritime business development, said of the contract worth millions of euros, "the new port development of this size is very rare, and the new port will help the country achieve growth goals, create greater economic growth, more job opportunities and new opportunities."

The first stage of green port development includes the basic dredging project. The project will be carried out by the Belgian Jan de Nul under the PPAs, and two new port terminals will be built.

The port is scheduled for operation in 2022, and will also link railways, highways and waterways with the capital Dhaka.

Cambodia could be subject to EU sanctions

It is understood that due to concerns about human and labour rights, the EU began a 18-month observation process in Cambodia. And the process could mix Cambodia's duty-free trade to temporarily suspend access to EU markets under everything but arms (EBA) schemes.

Cambodia's Ministry of Commerce issued a statement later in Tuesday saying it had eliminated export management fees (EMF) charges, meaning local exporters were no longer required to pay certificates of origin (CO). 

In addition, exporters are not required to apply for CO if the authorities of the country of destination do not require them. 

Some analysts said the move was the EU's desire to crack down on the Cambodian Hun Sen regime through trade sanctions, which would damage the country's economy. Of these, Cambodia's clothing industry of about $5 billion (about $6.8 billion) will be hit hardest, with the country's apparel industry employing 750,000 employees and being the largest exporter of clothing.

It comes after the European Union began imposing tariffs on Cambodia's imported rice last week for a period of three years to protect the interests of EU rice farmers.

2019 Global Air Cargo demand IATA: Prudent optimism

Taipei reported that "global trade tensions continue to have a relative impact on the global air cargo market movements." Global air cargo market demand increased by San Guos per cent over the same period in 2018, but below Jiu Chi per cent in 2017, and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) was cautiously optimistic about the growth prospects of international air Cargo in 2019 and believed that the air cargo industry must improve its value positioning to meet market demand.

IATA released 2018 global Air cargo data show that, in terms of freight tonne km, global air cargo market demand increased by San Guos per cent over the same period in 2018, significantly lower than the growth rate of 2017 Jiu Chi, and that production capacity increased Guos Shi per cent over the same period, as measured by available freight tonne km, exceeding the growth rate of annual demand.

In the IATA briefing, it was noted that the growth in demand for international air cargo in 2018 was dragged down by weak demand in December, with lower results since March 2016. This should be due to the rapid increase in the inventory of goods by international air Cargo customers, the reduction in freight volumes, the weakening of global economic activity, the weakness of global trade and the weakening of consumer confidence in relation to political resistance.

According to IATA's January 2019 survey confidence index for airline chief financial officers and freight executives, this year remains quite challenging. Depending on the recent growth in passenger and cargo demand, a number of changes in the trade war are expected in the coming year.

As the global economies maintain openness to the movement of people and trade, which is important for the growth of global air cargo, the promotion of digital modern logistics technologies and applications will help to expand the contribution of e-commerce to the growth of air cargo.

Notably, the continued growth of e-commerce in 2018 will be an important factor in driving the growth of international air cargo.

The port of Rotterdam will predict the best time to load and unload cargo

It is reported that the port of Rotterdam is about to launch a new IoT platform. The platform is known to have been developed by the Port of Rotterdam in conjunction with partners such as IBM and Cisco, and will use 44 smart sensors to follow the weather and hydrological conditions in ports.

Through the new platform, the Rotterdam Port Authority will send signals on weather and hydrological conditions in real time to make it easier for the port to carry out cargo handling plans. The port of Rotterdam said the sensor would then be applied to every aspect of the ship's voyage to the terminal for loading and unloading.

It is understood that the future from wave height, to wind speed and other data can be transmitted in real time, which will help the port to effectively predict the best time for cargo handling.

Ronald Paul, chief executive of the Port of Rotterdam, said it was a crucial step in the development of "smart ports" in the Rotterdam. He said real-time weather data would also help the port improve its "critical process of customer service."

The Port authority of Rotterdam said it was the first step towards building an innovative port that could use the latest technology, including artificial intelligence and blockchain technology, real-time analysis, and more.

For the growing port, digitalization is becoming increasingly important to infrastructure. In the future, sensors will be installed on wharf walls, roads and traffic signs, which will continue to create and measure data and interact autonomously with the terminal system.

"Special Report" New Economic and Trade Bureau treacherous Taiwan Enterprise Challenge

In recent years, the rapid changes in the international economic and trade situation, coupled with the U.S.-China trade war to add variables, our trading manufacturers are facing many practical problems and challenges in their operations, and the recent outbreak of swine fever in Africa has been a major test of our border inspection control measures, and even on the customs clearance of passengers and goods have an impact. 2019 Whether it is true, as the outside world says, is a year of extreme change, worth observing.

In the recent observation of the evolution of global trade, there will be roughly three variables in 2019, and the attitude of the United States still plays a key role, one is the U.S.-China trade war, trade disputes between the two countries are likely to ease, but there is a possibility of a full-blown war, and the car trade with the United States Congress, as long as any Have the potential to affect global economic stability.

International institutional Analysis, 2019 years later, the biggest problem is how the United States and China to solve the major differences in trade issues. Trump is under pressure from financial markets and farmers, and hopes he can strike a trade deal. But the most likely scenario for a U.S.-China trade war is to seek a freeze on conflict rather than a full armistice. That is, the United States may continue to impose import tariffs on 250 billion of dollars worth of mainland Chinese products, and of course mainland China will carry out the necessary retaliatory measures.

It is worth noting that this year may be the pressure of the United States and China trade disputes, should belong to the automobile trade. Trump has now ordered a national security investigation into cars and parts imported from the United States and said it will impose a 25 per cent import tariff on European and Japanese cars, while US and European and Japanese car talks are now hard to come by, but Europe, Japan and South Korea are also likely to be heavily taxed in the United States, if this is true, will have a significant impact on the global economy.

It is possible for the United States to introduce new export controls and limit the sale of key technologies to mainland China, while continuing to scrutinize mainland Chinese investment in the United States, and one that cannot be ruled out is that both economies could fall into a new Cold war situation if the US and China continue to deteriorate.

Differences in Sino-US trade negotiations have not affected maritime market confidence 

Reporter Chen Weiqiang/Taipei reported that the differences between China and the United States trade negotiations have not been reduced, and fear will continue to affect the confidence of the maritime transport market, because the supply and demand of manufacturing products is one of the important standards of the market, container freight is also regarded as an important economic indicator. The recent decline in seaborne freight has highlighted the weakness of manufacturing in Asia, Europe and North America. The slowdown in global economic growth, the unresolved trade conflict between the United States and China, and the uncertainty facing a partial suspension of the US government and Brexit will all affect market confidence.

Container ships and dry bulk carriers are one of the world's leading modes of transport for raw materials and manufactured goods, and market analysis of recent declines in freight costs is the latest sign of a marked slowdown in global economic growth.

The Harper Peterson Index (Harpex Shipping index), which measures container freight, has recently fallen by about 30 per cent, while the Baltic Dry Bulk index (Baltic Dry index) has also fallen by about 47 per cent since mid-2018 and is still declining earlier this year.

Market analysis, the recent decline in the dry bulk index shows that the global economy has experienced a serious slowdown. A report released by ANZ also noted that differences in trade talks between China and the United States have not been reduced and will continue to affect confidence levels in commodity markets.

Tariff deadline looming Los Angeles and Long Beach port blockage intensifies 

As tariff deadlines loom, U.S. exporters are hiring larger container ships to accommodate mounting cargo volumes, and Long Beach and the port of Los Angeles are facing unprecedented imports.

Import textile Tax code number of Customs Xu correct declaration 20190131

"Reporter Chen Weiqiang/Taipei reported that the Customs and Excise Department said yesterday (30) that the tariff Code classification benchmark for imported textiles was stated that when the textile material involved the mixing of two or more fibers, the relevant tax code should be included in the materials containing the most weight in the textile materials. If the composition of textile materials, such as heavy, it is listed as the last tax number. When importing textiles, the operators should correctly declare the tax code number, so as not to affect the prescription of customs clearance.

For example, the women's woven shorts (6204.6 mesh) are divided into 44 per cent cotton and man-made fibers five or six per cent, with artificial fibers as the main material (6204.63 mesh or 6204.69 mesh), with 33 per cent acrylic fibers (synthetic fibers; 6204.63 mesh) in artificial fibers, 20 per cent of snail haunting fibers (recycled fibers; 6204.69 mesh) and three per cent nylon fibers (synthetic fibers; 6204.63 mesh) should have the highest content of synthetic fibers (33 per cent), so it is advisable to classify the tax code No. No. 6204. No. 63.1, "synthetic fiber for women or girls with trousers, knee pants and shorts".

"Reporter Zhou Jia/Taipei Report" according to relevant units in mainland China, the United States President Ship (APL) announced that this (2019) April 1 will launch the new adjustment of the global network route products. The 34 routes covering major areas and the APL more than 80 non-ocean alliance routes, including the flagship Route Exx, Asia and Latin America routes continue to provide customers with leading shipping services, setting an example for the global shipping industry.

The message states that since April 2019, all routes operated by APL Worldwide include:

Two international conventions hit Greek shipowners: global shipping fears of imbalance this year 20190125 

  according to the relevant units in mainland China, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has imposed a convention on ballast water Treatment systems, which is expected to be implemented from September 8 today (2019), and the January 2020 IMO sulfur restriction order will also come into effect, with Greek shipowners predicting that under the impact of two conventions, There is a fear of imbalances in the global maritime market this year.

The message states that although the ballast water treatment system allows ships to be installed at a special inspection every 2.5 to five years at the time of the ship type, the deadline is September 2424, but because the International Maritime Organization's January 2020 sulphur limit will come, ships now use 3.5 per cent of high sulphur oil, at which time 0.5 per cent of the low sulphur fuel should be changed, And some ports in Europe, the United States and mainland China limit the use of 0.1 of low-sulfur oil in the port area, low sulfur oil per ton of higher sulfur oil about 200 U.S. dollars, old ships with high fuel consumption, such as the installation of scrubbers and feel not cost-effective. Shipping analysts have argued that the two conventions will prompt the early dismantling of old ships.

Industry insiders estimate that the age of shallow large container ships, large bulk carriers and tankers, most of which will be installed in this year's scrubbers, the daily fuel consumption of 120 tons, about 8,000 TEU and more container ships, docking installation scrubbers for at least 45 days, will significantly reduce ship turnover, so the Greek shipowners boldly predicted, 2019 will be a year of global maritime supply and demand imbalance.

Ocean Alliance Asia-Europe route may surpass 2M Alliance 20190125

According to the relevant units in mainland China, the Marine Alliance has recently revamped its network, including the addition of seven Asia-Nordic loops, and will launch day 3 product products in April to deploy 330 container ships on 38 service routes, which is expected to reach 3.8 million TEU,

The Ocean Alliance on the Asia-Europe route may be surpassing the 2M Alliance of Maersk and Mediterranean Shipping (MSC), according to Sea Intelligence, an international Maritime Analysis agency. Sea Intelligence consultancy analysis, Ocean Alliance with the new network, the number of containers in Asia and Europe may surpass Maersk and its partners. The Ocean Alliance also launched a new "day3" network last week, which is expected to take effect in April. In addition, the network is still required to increase the number of additional voyages per week between Asia and Scandinavia, with a total of seven voyages. As the new route is expected to include some of the largest ships, each shipping can be as high as 21,000 TEU, so the Ocean Alliance's Combined Energy in Asia and Europe this year is bound to grow significantly.

Maersk and the Mediterranean are known to have updated their Asia-Europe network in December last year to add more ships, but have cancelled some ports to ensure higher quasi-class rates. Sea Intelligence believes this is not the first time the 2M alliance has seen itself challenged in Asia-Europe's lead, which is likely to be only temporary. According to container regular shipping company orders, MSC will receive 11 ships capable of carrying between 22,000 and 23,000 TEU from August this year. In the other, the Ocean Alliance's Flying Ship (CMA CGM) will receive nine ships of 22,500 TEU class from December this year. Shipping analysts believe that in the three major alliances of the container and shipping industry, the Ocean Alliance is the largest, the Alliance League ranked third. The world's top nine container carriers have a place in all three alliances, and Taiping Shipping (PIL) is the only container regular route company independent of the alliance in the top 10 shipping companies.

The US US trade war, the global economic downturn, and the drop in international oil prices impact the performance of export orders. The Statistics Department of the Ministry of Economic Affairs announced that the export orders in December were $43 billion 380 million, an annual decrease of 10.5%, the biggest decline in 32 months. It is worth noting that the slowdown in mainland economic growth has also hit Taiwan's performance. Last December, the order from mainland China and Hongkong was $9 billion 840 million. Reduce 10.3%, refresh the biggest decline since May 2016.

Nor is it optimistic in January.

Outlook 2019 is also not optimistic. The Ministry of economic affairs estimated that the export orders in January this year will be about 37 billion US dollars to 38 billion US dollars, down 11.8% to 14.1% compared with the same period last year, and the decrease will continue to expand.

Lin Lizhen, director of statistics, said that 12 and January this year, the export orders were greatly reduced. The main reason is that the international forecast organization expects that this year's economic growth rate is much lower than that of last year. In the US US trade war, some of the telecommunications and electronic products were not in the tax list, but the economy declined and consumption weakened, affecting the purchase of mobile phones and affecting the order of electronic products. In addition, the decline in international oil prices and raw material prices also affect the purchase of plasticized products.

The trade war and the machinery industry are the worst.

For the analysis of the main products, many goods even received a record of 32 months and the biggest reduction in financial tsunami. The largest decline in machinery industry was significantly affected by the US US trade war, which decreased by 22.5% annually, the biggest financial downturn since September 2009.

Mainland slowdown

On the basis of regional analysis, Europe's 33.7% decrease in July 2001 compared with the same month last year was the most surprising in July 2001. However, Lin Lizhen explained that due to the source of orders for manufacturers, the actual orders had not been reduced. In contrast, the mainland and Hongkong manufacturers with stable orders in December decreased by 10.3% a year, the biggest reduction since May 2016. Growth deceleration is also a major factor.

The Ministry of economic affairs expects that the first quarter will continue to be enveloped in the haze of export orders which shrank considerably from the same period last year. However, the first quarter was originally a low season, coupled with the impact of the big environment. However, the second quarter is expected to benefit from the off-season replenishment and other factors. Orders will pick up, but the US US trade war will become a major variable.
