Published by:

July 4, 2017 – NYK has been included in three new ESG indexes, the first being the FTSE Blossom Japan Index created by global index provider FTSE Russell,* and the two others being the MSCI Japan ESG Select Leaders Index and the MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index created by MSCI.** The Government Pension Investment Fund for Japan, one of the world’s largest pension funds, has selected these three indexes as benchmarks for its ESG investment strategy.

The FTSE Blossom Japan Index has been designed to provide market participants with a tool to identify and measure the performance of Japanese companies that demonstrate strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. FTSE Russell measures a company’s exposure to, and management of, ESG issues in multiple dimensions such as corporate governance, health & safety, anti-corruption, and climate change. This index has been constructed to be industry neutral compared with the Japanese equity market.

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.

Re-use NYK-containers via APCS platform

Published by:

NYK Benelux uses the Avantida ‘container re-use module’.

By making use of this community solution (APCS) NYK Benelux improves the interaction with the transport companies for the re-use of containers.

Through a simple web application a transport company can apply to re-use a container for an export booking after the container was discharged by that shipping company.

This way, a lot of ’empty’ kilometers are avoided from and to empty container depots. The administration runs uniformly across all shipping companies.

Shipping companies MSC, Turkon Line and OOCL already started with this solution. Later this month Yangming, Hamburg Süd and Hapag-Lloyd Benelux will also follow.

Note: We provide a third part NYK Line Tracking system, hope this service can help you track your container.
