More than one in three containers worldwide are being rolled over, amid an unprecedented supply chain challenge hitting the liner community.

Ocean Insights’ latest cargo delay statistics published today show how the container bull run is wreaking havoc on the market, with surging rollover rates across major ports during December and most major carriers seeing increases in delays.

The latest figures from Ocean Insights show that most major ports are seeing elevated levels of rollover cargo from November to December. Rather than cargo flows diminishing in line with historical seasonal precedent, there are growing levels of demand during a period that usually sees a decrease in volumes. Sourcing available containers has become extremely difficult in recent months.

La combinación de avances en el diseño del casco de los barcos, el diseño del hidroala y la tecnología de almacenamiento eléctrico ha impulsado la investigación de los transbordadores eléctricos de alta velocidad. Hasta ahora, un par de empresas han producido presentaciones en video de simulación de su futura tecnología de transbordadores eléctricos. Una empresa está ubicada en Irlanda y la otra en Australia, y ambas han tenido una experiencia considerable en la investigación y el desarrollo de embarcaciones de alta velocidad, una para fines comerciales de transbordadores y la otra para la competencia.

Introducción

El ferry se ha convertido en un componente esencial en el transporte de pasajeros municipal

México.-Los neoliberales arruinaron a la marina mercante, afirma AMLO

Periódico La Jornada

Durante el periodo neoliberal, la marina mercante fue desmantelada, “la acabaron, la arruinaron”, expuso el presidente de la República, Andrés Manuel López Obrador. En visita de inspección a las instalaciones del puerto de Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán, ponderó la intervención de la Secretaría de Marina en el manejo de los puertos del país:

En tiempo del desarrollo estabilizador –resultante de la posguerra– se logró tener una marina propia, desarrollada. Esto se terminó, ya no hay marina mercante propia, y la Secretaría de Marina, con una visión generosa, está llamando a que participen los marinos mercantes. Es relevante que los puertos estén manejados por la Secretaría de Marina. Qué vamos a lograr con esto: primero

A new research effort, which is focusing on combining emerging technologies to promote low-carbon shipping, will test its technologies on in-service vessels. The project, which is named CHEK (deCarbonizing sHipping by Enabling Key technology symbiosis on real vessel concept designs), is receiving funding from the EU Horizon 2020 program to accelerate innovation with tests of a sail on a dry bulk carrier as well as a hydrogen-powered ship engine on a cruise ship.

“No current or emerging ‘silver bullet’ technology alone will be able to reduce CO2 emissions from maritime transport in accordance with the IMO's ambitious 2050 goals,” says CHEK project coordinator, Doctor Suvi Karirinne,
