DP World: Jebel Ali and London Gateway Volumes Grow

WMN 28.10.2014

 

DP World Limited handled 44.8 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units) across its global portfolio of container terminals during the first nine months of 2014, with gross container volumes growing by 9.0% on a like-for-like basis. 

On a reported basis gross container volumes grew by 10.1% with new volume at London Gateway (UK) and Embraport (Brazil) contributing to the increase.

Growth for the nine month period was largely driven by the Asia Pacific and India Subcontinent region, Europe and UAE terminals. The UAE delivered another strong performance handling 11.4 million TEU, representing growth of 12.6% year-on-year. We remain encouraged by the performance in Europe, which continues to display strong volume growth.

At a consolidated level, DP

US shipping share blues

US shipping share blues

New York-listed shipping stocks took a beating Monday as negative sentiment failed to take a day off for the Veterans Day bank holiday.

Shares were down on the New York Stock Exchange.

DryShips led the charge, as TradeWinds already reported earlier today, plunging by 21% to $1.47 after the George Economou-led company announced that it was withdrawing a notes offering.

Vale’s cost-out shipping boom

 

 
 

From East Asia Forum:

In 2008, to compete with BHP and Rio Tinto over shipping costs, the shipping company Vale commissioned, at a cost of over US$2 billion, a new line of ‘Very Large Ore Carriers’ (VLOCs), dubbed the ‘Valemax’. The Valemax carrier is the largest bulk carrier ever built: over twice as big as Cape-size carriers (400,000 dwt). Current shipping costs from Australia to China stand at around US$10/tonne, whereas it currently costs around US$22/tonne to ship iron ore from Brazil to China. Direct Valemax trips from Brazil to China would bring shipping costs down to aboutUS$15/tonne.

Vale had 24 out of 35 of these huge

RESUMEN

 

La ausencia de información técnico-académica sobre la estructuración de costos para la determinación de tarifas para los distintos tipos de Contratos, tanto de Fletamento como de Transporte Marítimo, motivó al autor al análisis de esta importante gestión.

Para estos efectos, se separan los servicios de Transporte Marítimo y los Contratos en dos grupos: Contratos de Fletamento
