Royal Foundation UNODC The Royal Foundation of the Prince and Princess of Wales and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) have announced their new partnership around United for Wildlife, the flagship programme to end the illegal wildlife trade.

The UNODC will be supported in this effort by DP World, long-standing advocates for increased action in the fight against the illegal wildlife trade (IWT).

The new three-year agreement, coming into force on 1st August, will see The Royal Foundation and UNODC combine their resources and expertise in the global fight against the IWT, which is worth up to $20 billion annually and is associated with violent crime, corruption, and other forms of trafficking. This high-level collaboration underlines the global nature of the threat posed by the IWT, which robs the planet of its most precious natural resources and funds organised crime, directly affecting already vulnerable communities.

United for Wildlife was founded by Prince William and The Royal Foundation in 2014 to end the illegal wildlife trade. It fosters collaboration across the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors to increase the identification and investigation of wildlife crime, aiming to make it impossible for traffickers to exploit any vulnerabilities in global transport and financial systems.

In fusing United for Wildlife’s private sector and NGO partnerships with UNODC’s global network of wildlife crime advisers and relationships with global law enforcement entities and national governments, the partnership will scale the programme’s collective ability to enable the detection and disruption of this harmful trade.

UNODC officers and objectives focused on United for Wildlife will be integrated into key UNODC programmes, working to expand United for Wildlife’s visibility, membership, and regional coverage. Officers will be based in Southern Africa, West Africa, East Africa, Latin America, and Asia. The partnership will increase much-needed law enforcement engagement in fighting criminal syndicates behind the global wildlife trade and aims to tackle the high-level corruption that often facilitates wildlife trafficking. It will also encourage cross-sector collaboration and information-sharing to support seizures, investigations and arrests relating to IWT.

Amanda Berry OBE, CEO of The Royal Foundation, said: “The illegal wildlife trade continues to exploit and threaten the world’s most vulnerable species. Tackling this heinous crime requires a serious and organised response built on collaboration across sectors and borders. United for Wildlife – with its global network of over 450 partners – will do all it can to support this response around the world.

“As a world leader in the disruption and prevention of transnational crime, UNODC will be a key partner for The Royal Foundation in its delivery of United for Wildlife. This partnership exemplifies the breadth and diversity of United for Wildlife’s global network as we combine our expertise, resources, and unwavering determination to end wildlife crime for good.”

“Wildlife crime is driving thousands of species to extinction and disrupting vital ecosystems, demanding urgent action,” said UNODC Executive Director, Ms. Ghada Waly. “I am proud that UNODC is joining forces with the Royal Foundation and DP World, uniting our efforts to preserve the planet’s most treasured species. With its technical support and global field network, UNODC is ideally placed to equip law enforcement agencies around the world with the tools, resources and expertise needed to disrupt and dismantle the criminal networks perpetuating this transnational crime. Through this new partnership, we will safeguard our fragile ecosystems for future generations and preserve nature’s delicate balance.”

Maha Al Qattan, Chief People & Sustainability Officer of DP World, said: “As a business that enables global trade, we are acutely aware of the negative impact of illegal wildlife trade on our industry, the communities we operate in, as well as the long-term ramifications on biodiversity. To ensure a sustainable and better future for all, we must deploy our collective resources to scale monitoring, regulation, and other pioneering solutions to tackle this issue. I’m delighted to help bring these two fantastic organisations together. I’m confident their combined global network and expertise will help us accelerate our joint efforts.”

In the six years since creating its international transport and financial taskforces, the United for Wildlife network has contributed to over 500 law enforcement cases, over 400 arrests, nearly 300 seizures of wildlife products and has trained over 100,000 people. The network spans the globe - from Southeast Asia to South America, Europe to East Africa - increasing deterrents across the entire chain of demand and supply.

Los Angeles C40 Shanghai The Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners has elected former U.S. Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard as its new president.

The five-member commission also voted in Diane Middleton as its new vice president. Both started their new roles on Thursday immediately after their unanimous election.

“I am honored that Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard, an icon in public service, would agree to continue her service to our City on the Board of Harbor Commissioners and I am excited that she has just been elected as Board President,” said Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass. “I have known and fought alongside Commissioner Roybal-Allard for many years, and her experience in Congress, where she secured critical funding for Port operations and advocated for the equitable treatment of communities impacted by truck traffic, will be an asset to both the Port and to the City.

“I am also pleased to see Commissioner Diane Middleton be elected as Board Vice President. Commissioner Middleton is a committed, proven leader who understands the Port’s significance to the surrounding community and to its workforce. I am confident that the Board’s leadership will help guide the Port as it continues to be the #1 port in the Western Hemisphere while being a good steward of the environment and our communities.”

“It is an honor and privilege to serve and lead the Los Angeles Harbor Commission,” said Roybal-Allard. “I look forward to working with my fellow commissioners and Mayor Bass to assure that our Port remains not only a strong economic engine but a model for sustainability and social responsibility. At the same time, we will be working to strengthen our relations with stakeholders and make sure that the community prospers from the success of the Port.”

“I am grateful for the opportunity to work with our committed commissioners and staff and collaborate with Council District 15, the Port of Long Beach and labor, community and environmental groups to move our port toward meeting the economic and environmental goals we have set,” said Middleton. “We have the chance to make the Port of LA a center of job development through our support of the “blue economy” (Alta Sea) and our Workforce Training Center. The challenges are significant but I am hopeful we will make progress.”

Roybal-Allard was appointed to the five-member board by Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass in May 2023. Roybal-Allard previously served in the U.S. House of Representatives for three decades and was the first Mexican-American woman elected to the U.S. Congress. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee and Chairwoman of the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, Roybal-Allard led the effort to secure $57 million to dredge the Port of Los Angeles Main Channel and advocated for numerous other Port-related security grants. Roybal-Allard also served in the California State Assembly from 1987 to 1992.

Diane Middleton began serving on the Harbor Commission in 2019. A resident of San Pedro, Middleton is an attorney and expert in labor and maritime law, long active in Harbor area labor and civil rights issues. She began her law career representing injured auto, steel and hospital workers, and was the first in the 1970s to file a class action asbestos lawsuit on behalf of shipyard workers. In 1979, Middleton established her own law practice in San Pedro, representing injured longshoremen and shipyard workers until her retirement in 2010.

The other three Los Angeles Harbor Commissioners include Ed Renwick, a board member since 2013; Michael Muñoz and I. Lee Williams, both appointed by Los Angeles Mayor Bass in May 2023.

The Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners oversees the management and operation of the Port of Los Angeles. Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor of Los Angeles and confirmed by the Los Angeles City Council. They serve five-year terms and elections are typically held every July for the offices of president and vice president. All five members of the Harbor Commission are volunteers.

Emirates SkyCargoAs it warms up in the Northern Hemisphere, Emirates SkyCargo is scaling up its cool chain capacity for perishables, preparing for a busy summer season of weddings and outdoor events.

As the demand for decorative floral arrangements increases, May 2023 saw Emirates SkyCargo transport 3,590 tonnes of time- and temperature-sensitive fresh cut flowers, a 20% rise from the same period last year.

Ecuador and Kenya are the top two export origin locations; Ecuador in particular has experienced a steady rise in flower trade in recent years, increasing its exports with Emirates SkyCargo by 21% in May this year, compared to 2022. The Netherlands, a country that plays a major role in the world’s flower trade, remains in both the top three export origins and import locations. Other key import locations for this commodity include the UAE and Australia, with Saudi Arabia rounding out the top four.

Dennis Lister, Senior Vice President – Product and Innovation, Emirates SkyCargo, said, "We are seeing an increased demand for fresh flowers as the wedding season in the Northern Hemisphere reaches its peak, and a corresponding spike in demand for logistics capabilities to protect perishables. Leveraging our industry-leading temperature-controlled technology, facilities, equipment and expert personnel, Emirates Fresh continues to offer our global customers reliable freshness, whether it’s beautiful blooms for that special day or fresh produce for the garden barbeque. With 500 to 600 tonnes of perishables transported on Emirates SkyCargo flights every day, we are proud to be the partner of choice that connects the global agriculture community with their customers all over the world.”

Perishables are the carrier’s largest business by tonnage carried, uplifting an average of 22,500 tonnes of perishable commodities every month. Ranging from freshly picked mangoes from Pakistan, to salmon from Norway and brilliant blooms from Kenya, Emirates SkyCargo transports goods rapidly and efficiently across its global network of over 140 destinations.

Fresh cut flowers dominate as the leading perishable category transported by SkyCargo with chilled meat and fresh fruits rounding out the top three perishable product categories, as air cargo enables temperate-safe and rapid transit from farm to shop in as little as 24-48 hours.

As temperatures rise and summer produce is harvested, cool chain logistics play an essential role in keeping high-demand perishable produce fresh and high quality for consumers worldwide.

Emirates' dedicated cool-chain handling capabilities have been developed with a focus on fast connection times and high-quality transfers. Its dual airport hub in Dubai is world’s largest and most technologically advanced cargo handling facility, offering a three-hour, air-to-air transfer service. Handling over 8,000 shipments per day, the facility has over 15,000m² of dedicated storage for temperature-sensitive goods, including perishables.

Uniquely positioned between east and west, approximately 1/3 of the world’s population can be served from Dubai within a 4-hour flight range. Emirates’ vast network of destinations, meanwhile, also give customers the choice of multiple flights per day to many locations across both freighter and passenger aircraft belly-hold capacity.

Emirates Fresh, SkyCargo’s perishable-oriented service offers three different options for customers to choose the appropriate level of temperature protection for their cargo. This ranges from produce with a higher tolerance for temperature fluctuations, to high-end perishables that require active cool dollies for ramp protection. Customers can track and trace their shipments and view temperature monitoring data online at every step, as well as make short-notice direct bookings, thanks to SkyCargo’s ecommerce platform.

Maersk atlantaA.P. Moller - Maersk (Maersk) has inaugurated a new 123,000 square foot air freight gateway near Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport (ATL) that offers direct planeside recovery with immediate unit load device (ULD) transfers to the new facility.

"Maersk is strengthening our promise to customers of integrated, end-to-end logistics solutions by growing our air freight services in a strategic transportation hub. Our Atlanta facility enhances our offering, providing customers with superior supply chain flexibility supported by our expanded regional capabilities in warehousing and transportation. We will be able to leverage this connectivity to bolster our air freight network across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the world." John Wetherell, Regional Head of Air Freight, North America.

Atlanta is one of the most important commercial, financial, and transportation centers of the southeastern United States. Over 75 percent of the Fortune 1000 companies have a presence in the Atlanta area, and the region hosts offices of about 1,250 multinational corporations.

Located in Atlanta Tradeport's Foreign Trade Zone, the new air cargo facility enjoys lower duties, reduced processing fees, and quicker movement of goods from the port of Savannah. The site is located just two miles from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and has direct access to interstates I-75 and I-285.

The facility is ideal for local and regional distribution and is in close proximity to access commercial carrier capacity. The site will act as a forward staging facility for our Greenville, South Carolina own controlled flight operations – from which we operate five B74F return Maersk flights per week to Hahn, Germany, and two B76F flights per week to Shenyang, China, with onward connection to Seoul, Korea.

The new facility has 39 dock doors, two oversized drive-up ramps, and is a Bonded Container Freight Station (CFS) with U.S. Customs. In addition, it operates as a U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Certified Cargo Screening Facility (CCSF) to ensure timely, secure handling of air freight. This enables priority handling of both import and export airline ULDs.

The new Atlanta facility builds on several initiatives designed to bolster Maersk’s air freight services in North America. The company recently opened a new Chicago air freight gateway facility to add more supply chain integration opportunities for customers using Chicago O’Hare International and Rockford International. Prior to that, Maersk also launched a new air freight service with regular flights between South Carolina, Korea, and China operated by Miami-headquartered cargo airline Amerijet International.

APM monroviaAPM Terminals has welcomed the first call of Hapag-Lloyd’s new fortnightly West Africa Service (WA1) to Monrovia.

The fortnightly service connects Tanger Med, Nouakchott, Freetown, Conakry, Monrovia and back to Tanger Med.

The WA1, which began mid-May, establishes Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia as new markets for the shipping line and further boosts import and export economic opportunities in the region.

APM Terminals Monrovia is the only container and general cargo terminal in the West African country. Recent dredging operations widened port channels and saw the removal of around one million cubic meters of sediment. As a result, the terminal’s draft has increased from 9.5 meters to 12.5 meters, allowing larger vessels to enter the Freeport.

Over recent years, a focus on reducing vessel waiting times and port stay reductions has paid off. Currently the terminal averages first lift within around 30 minutes of berthing. And vessel waiting times are now consistently under 24 hours.

Ease of business and continuous improvements in customer experience are additionally enhanced by port automation and digitization. In 2022, APM Terminals Liberia became the first to introduce the company’s global Truck Appointment System, to streamline visits to the terminal.

On the first call to Monrovia, with 28 containers, APM Terminals staff presented the Okee Cuno’s captain and crew with mementos to mark the occasion.

At the presentation, Thomas Moore, APM Terminals Liberia Head of Commercial said, “We are very happy with the preparations, handling and continued support in this first call from Hapag Lloyd. We’ve been proud to provide a smooth introduction into their new market and look forward to increasing volumes.”

APM Terminals has operated at the port of Monrovia since February 2011. Most recently, colleagues celebrated a year without lost time incident (LTI). Safety, as in all APM Terminals locations, is considered first and foremost.

Davies Turner FTA As the market leader in overland trailer services between Türkiye and the UK, Davies Turner welcomes today’s news that the UK and Türkiye have committed to negotiate an updated Free Trade Agreement (FTA) designed to deepen the trade relationship between the two countries.

Tariff-free arrangements like the one signed in 2020, which was rolled over from when the UK left the EU, covering goods, but not areas such as services, digital and data, support the trading relationship between the UK and Türkiye, and bring benefits to UK importers and exporters, as well as the freight forwarding and logistics companies that manage their supply chains.

That’s the opinion of Alan Williams, company director, who adds that a new broader deal could boost trade and help businesses maximise opportunities in this area.

As a major facilitator of trade between the two countries, Davies Turner operates multiple daily two-way overland and multimodal trailer services between the UK and Türkiye in a long-standing partnership with Istanbul-based Ekol, one of the country’s largest freight and warehousing operators.

Williams adds: “The tariff-free trading agreement signed in 2020, along with the problems in long distance supply chains, which have increasingly prompted traders to turn to Türkiye as an alternative source of supply to countries in Asia, has had a major impact on the uptick in trading volumes between the two countries over the last two years.

“In welcoming the news, we would also be delighted to provide input into any consultation that is conducted ahead of the start of negotiations, which is expected in 2024.”

Maersk AI solution UK Maersk, a leading integrator of logistics dedicated to simplifying and connecting its customers’ supply chains, is implementing an AI-enabled robotic solution in its latest UK warehouse in East Midlands.

The state-of-the-art Robotic Shuttle Put Wall System by the US based company Berkshire Grey will automate and enhance and accelerate the warehouse operations in the 685,000 sq ft facility significantly.

The systems can sort orders three times faster than conventional, manual systems, improve upstream batch inventory picking by up to 33%, and handle 100% of the typical stock keeping unit (SKU) assortments, order profiles and packages. This will not only increase the competitiveness of Maersk’s fulfillment service offering, but also the resilience and flexibility of its customers’ supply chains.

"Berkshire Grey's AI-enabled robotic solutions have a proven track record across various industries in North America and we are delighted to tap into these benefits for our customers in UK now,” says Fergus Whinham, Area Head of the "Fulfilled by Maersk" product in UK & Ireland. “This sophisticated, flexible system reflects our commitment to optimizing processes and better serving our customers in rapidly evolving markets."

The warehouse which is part of the SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway will go into operations in October 2023. The BG Robotic Shuttle Put Wall System can be implemented with minimal interruption to the existing warehouse infrastructure and will be deployed before the peak season starts. The SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway features UK’s only inland freeport as well as a rail freight interchange providing it with direct rail links to the seaports of Felixstowe, London Gateway and Southampton.

Maersk today offers its customers integrated logistics solutions in 473 warehouses with a total capacity of more than 80m sq ft (7.5m sqm) across all continents (as of 31 March 2023). Several additional Maersk warehouses are planned to go into operation across Europe in 2023 and 2024.
