Hongkong Post to issue “100 Years of Numbered Typhoon Signals” commemorative stamps

Published by:

Hongkong Post announced today (May 29) the issue of a set of commemorative stamps on the theme of “100 Years of Numbered Typhoon Signals”, together with associated philatelic products, on June 13 (Tuesday).

Typhoon signals, originally devised for the marine community, have been widely adopted for general use. In 1917, numbered typhoon signals indicating the wind direction and wind strength associated with tropical cyclones first came into use in Hong Kong for the purpose of warning the public. At first, there were only Signal Nos. 1 to 7. After several enhancements, the signals were replaced with Signal Nos. 1 to 10 in 1931. Signal Nos. 2, 3 and 4 were used intermittently afterwards before becoming obsolete in the late 1930s. In 1956, Strong Wind Signal No. 3 was introduced. The whole numbered signal system was modified again in 1973 and this system has been used since then. The year 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the introduction of numbered typhoon signals in Hong Kong. Hongkong Post is issuing a set of five stamps and a stamp sheetlet to commemorate the occasion.

Catch a train in China

Published by:

Increasingly, cargo catches a train in China and then travels more than 9,000 km to Europe.

Over the last few years, rail services that link Asia with Europe – such as the New Silk Road (south corridor) or the Trans-Siberian Line (north corridor) – have become an important alternative to air and ocean freight transportation. From 2014 to 2016, Panalpina’s rail volumes from China to Europe tripled and many major shippers now transport sizeable volumes by rail. The service is particularly attractive for customers in the automotive, manufacturing, technology as well as retail and fashion industries.

In September 2016, Panalpina launched its first own-controlled Less than Container Load (LCL) rail service from China to Poland. Own-controlled means Panalpina takes care of pick-up and consolidation in China and deconsolidation and delivery in Europe. “More than 150 customers have used the service so far, moving over 5,000 m3 of cargo such as automotive parts for tier 2 and 3 providers, tablets, equipment for manufacturing lines as well as clothes and shoes,” says Antonio Pacciolla, regional head of overland Europe at Panalpina. “We expect these volumes to grow further as more of our customers in Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Sweden the Netherlands and Belgium are now considering this transport option.”
