Once a seaman, always a seaman: Captain Hans Trey and Seafaring

Published by:

When asked where we should meet to talk, without missing a beat, Hans Trey answers: “In the International Maritime Museum.” After asking how long it would last and being told at least an hour, he responds: “That long, really?” But it ultimately turns out to be more than three hours. It was like time just flew by. Or do seafarers use another saying?

When asked where we should meet to talk, without missing a beat, Hans Trey answers: “In the International Maritime Museum.” After asking how long it would last and being told at least an hour, he responds: “That long, really?” But it ultimately turns out to be more than three hours. It was like time just flew by. Or do seafarers use another saying?

People from Hamburg are, no doubt, a bit cold at first. But after three hours, Trey has warmed up to operating temperature. “Do we still want to go to the simulator?” he asks. And without waiting for a response, he says: “We just have to go to the simulator! After all, that’s my simulator!” Then Trey laughs, more of a mischievous he-he than a guffaw.

When Lloyd went Underwater

Published by:

The sea route across the Atlantic was under blockade – so Norddeutscher Lloyd had a submarine built during World War I. The incredible story of the submarine cargo ship “Deutschland”.

Jules Verne, the French author who caused a sensation with his science fiction novels “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” and “Around the World in Eighty Days” could not have come up with a better story: a trading voyage not on, but under the sea – with a submarine carrying not torpedoes, but valuable cargo. This is no fairy tale, however, but a true story. Long before it merged with Hapag, which was still its main competitor, Norddeutscher Lloyd played a key role in this bizarre, almost forgotten episode in the middle of World War I.

Slam Dunk in the Cargo Hold

Published by:

Basketball? You can (sometimes) even play it on board a container ship at Hapag-Lloyd…

Some of the world’s best basketball players learned to dribble and shoot on the streets or in small “cages”, like the legendary West 4th Street Courts in New York’s Greenwich Village.

The team on board the “Bremen Express” have now shown that a container ship can also serve as a basketball arena. To help pass the time while waiting for a place in the dry dock in Qingdao, China, the crew took advantage of the empty cargo holds to have a tournament – and no doubt to perform plenty of slam dunks (when a player slams the ball down through the hoop from above).

Container firms order new ships to gain economies of scale

Published by:

Global container shipping companies have a strong appetite for new vessels, despite existing overcapacity, because they want to trade up to larger ships to benefit from economies of scale, according to shipping analysts.

Shipping association Bimco expects total container shipping fleet capacity to grow by 5.9 percent in 2013, although estimates for the amount of container capacity being scrapped are at a record high.

“Despite the challenge they face, the second tier carriers continue to have a strong appetite for new capacity,” shipping newsletter Alphaliner wrote on Tuesday.

Ordering new ships is aimed at lower operating costs to match economies of scale enjoyed by the largest carriers with the biggest vessels.

Alphaliner said the order book of the three largest carriers, Maersk Line, part of Danish conglomerate A.P. Moller-Maersk (MAERSKb.CO), Switzerland’s Mediterranean Shipping Company and France’s CMA CGM CMACG.UL, currently stands at 15.6 percent of their current fleet.

The combined order book of the next 18 carriers has reached 19.8 percent of their existing fleet.

Nine of 17 carriers reported positive operating earnings in the third quarter, but performances of individual carriers were mixed and operating profit or loss ranged from minus 5.1 percent for Regional Container Lines RCL.BK to plus 8.1 percent for Maersk Line.

“The largest carriers continue to enjoy significant scale advantages, with Maersk and CMA CGM, the first and third largest carriers, continuing to outperform the rest of the industry,” Alphaliner said.

Maersk Line has take delivery of five mega ships with a capacity of 18,270 TEU each this year and another 16 sister ships will be finished by DSME (042660.KS) shipyard in South Korea and delivered within the next year and a half.

The average size of container ships on the busy routes between ports in Asia and Northern Europe exceeded 10,000 TEU earlier this year.

Bimco expects that vessels with a total capacity of 450,000 twenty-foot containers (TEU) will be scrapped in 2013, which is the highest annual total ever to be scrapped in the industry.

“It is one of the best ways the industry can help themselves,” shipping analyst Peter Sand from Bimco said.

He said the average age of scrapped container ships has fallen to around 22 years from around 30 years a few years ago.

The container shipping industry has been struggling with overcapacity because of too many vessels and too few goods to transport as a result of the economic downturn.

Maersk Line, the global market leader with nearly 600 container vessels, has said it planned to increase spot rates on routes from Asia to Northern Europe by $750 per TEU with effect from December 15, a 75 percent increase if successful.

Competing liners such as Israel Corporation-controlled (ILCO.TA) Zim Lines, Chinese company Orient Overseas Container Line (0316.HK), South Korea’s Hanjin Shipping (117930.KS) and German-based Hapag-Lloyd HPLG.UL have also announced rate rises with effect from mid-December.

Bimco expects fleets to grow by a lower pace in 2014 than in 2013.

G6 Alliance to Expand Coverage to Compete With P3

Published by:

The G6 Alliance unveiled plans today to expand into the trans-Atlantic and Asia-U.S. West Coast trade lanes in a widely expected response to the proposed P3 Network partnership between the world’s three largest carriers, Maersk, Mediterranean Shipping Co. and CMA CGM.

The G6 carriers — Hapag-Lloyd, NYK, OOCL, Hyundai Merchant Marine, APL and MOL — will deploy 240 container ships serving 66 ports in Asia, America and Europe.

The alliance plans to complete the expansion of services by the second quarter of 2014, pending regulatory approval, to coincide with the launch of the P3 network on the Asia-Europe, trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific routes. Details on port coverage will be announced at a later date.

The lines, which currently cooperate on the Asia-Europe and Asia-U.S. East Coast routes, will operate 76 vessels covering 12 services connecting 27 ports in Asia and on the West Coast of the United States.

A further 42 ships will operate five trans-Atlantic services, including two pendulum services, calling at 25 ports in the U.S., Canada, Panama, Mexico, the Netherlands, the U.K., France, Belgium and Germany.

“The proposed expansion will complement our existing services in the Asia–North America East Coast and Asia–Europe trades, allowing us to deploy the most suitable ships for each loop across the trades,” the G6 carriers said in a joint statement.

“With greater service flexibility and operational synergies, the G6 alliance will have an even more resilient and robust network – giving shippers a wider coverage area and shorter transit times without reducing the total capacity.”

Each G6 carrier will be able to offer almost twice as many sailings on the Asia-North America trade as what it currently operates separately, the alliance said.

The six container lines that make up the G6 accounted for 27.1 percent of U.S. containerized export trade and 28.6 percent of U.S. containerized import trade in the first nine months of 2013, according to information compiled from PIERS, the Data Division of JOC Group Inc. Not all services offered by these lines will be included in the G6 expansion; Hapag-Lloyd, for example, has noted that it will continue to offer its Montreal and ATA services, as well as Mediterranean services, outside of the G6.
