Maersk Far East Africa A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) announced several updates to its ocean shipping services between the Far East and Africa today.

Commencing from the first week of December, FEW2, FEW3, and FEW6 will have updated rotations. In addition to these, Cape Town Express, a new feeder service, will be introduced and be connected to the updated SAFARI service.

The new and updated ocean services have been designed with customers’ requirements in mind: seamless and reliable connection between the Far East and West Africa while delivering more comprehensive coverage and shorter transit times. South Africa, which is facing congestion, will get connected on a dedicated feeder service via Port Louis and be delinked from the FEW service in order to improve reliability and transit time.

"We are witnessing rapid growth in the African markets where not only is the higher consumption creating a more robust demand for goods, but it reflects resilience of African economy , In today’s market conditions, it has become imperative for us to deliver a resilient and reliable product to customers. Our ambition is to deliver a competitive advantage to our customers and be future-ready through all the changes we are announcing today." Bhavan Vempati, Head of Market, Maersk Indian Subcontinent, Middle East, and Africa.

Updated FEW2 Service: Singapore – Tanjung Pelepas – Lome – Apapa – Onne – Cotonou – Singapore.

The updated FEW2 service will ensure seamless and fast connections to and from the Far East via Tanjung Pelepas to African ports, with a clear focus on the Nigerian market.

Updated FEW3 Service: Qingdao – Kwangyang – Shanghai – Ningbo – Shekou – Nansha – Singapore – Tanjung Pelepas – Tema – Lekki – Abidjan – Pointe Noire – Colombo – Singapore – Xiamen – Qingdao.

The present FEW1 service will be discontinued. Coverage will be transferred to the FEW3 service, which will be upgraded to accommodate the former FEW1 requirements. The new and upgraded FEW3 service will connect all major ports in West Africa with all key ports in Asia.

Updated FEW6 Service: Qingdao – Shanghai – Ningbo – Nansha – Tanjung Pelepas – Singapore – Pointe Noire – Kribi – Luanda – Walvis Bay – Singapore – Qingdao.

The updated FEW6 service will focus on the main South West African ports with a new call to Kribi. A significant change to this service will be the delinking of Cape Town coverage to enable quicker transit times of up to seven days between the South West African ports and Asian ports. This will increase the overall reliability of the service to customers.

New Cape Town Express: Port Louis – Cape Town – Port Louis.

With the removal of Cape Town from the FEW6, a brand-new service, the Cape Town Express, will be launched. The new service caters for consistent cargo movement between Port Louis and Cape Town. In Port Louis, there will be connectivity from and to Asia using the Safari service.

Updated SAFARI service: Shanghai – Ningbo – Shekou – Tanjung Pelepas – Port Louis – Durban – Port Louis – Tanjung Pelepas.

The Safari service will add a Port Louis northbound coverage, providing a direct connection for the Cape Town exports, including reefers, to the Asian market using a combination of Cape Town Express and the Safari service.

JB Hunt BNSFJ.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. (NASDAQ: JBHT), one of the largest supply chain solutions providers in North America, and BNSF Railway (BNSF), North America’s largest intermodal rail provider, today announced the launch of Quantum, a breakthrough intermodal service that accommodates the service-sensitive highway freight needs of customer supply chains.

Quantum provides the consistency, agility and speed needed to transport service-sensitive highway freight using rail. Solutions are customized specifically to each customer’s needs, taking into account service expectations, transit requirements and operational procedures. The Quantum team is comprised of both J.B. Hunt and BNSF operators housed together at a new Intermodal Innovation Center at BNSF headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. Their workflow is integrated at every step of the intermodal shipping process – from planning to execution and oversight to exception management.

“Quantum allows customers with service-sensitive freight to benefit from the cost savings of intermodal, while reducing their carbon footprint and maintaining the level of service and consistency needed in their supply chains,” said Darren Field, president of intermodal at J.B. Hunt. “Our joint service and capacity are unmatched. When combined with J.B. Hunt’s broad range of flexible solutions, there’s no provider in the industry who can match Quantum’s ability to move your most important freight.”

Quantum customers can anticipate up to 95 percent on-time delivery service approximately a day faster than traditional intermodal service. Planning starts with aligning forecasts for dray, container and rail capacity with customer needs. Priority drayage and rail movement are incorporated to provide faster, more consistent transits.

“We are excited to bring this innovative vision to life by creating Quantum with J.B. Hunt,” said Tom Williams, group vice president of consumer products at BNSF. “Built on a long-standing strategic partnership foundation and decades of intermodal capacity expansion investments, Quantum will provide a faster and more consistent intermodal solution to customers. Our new Intermodal Innovation Center will foster continued collaboration between our companies to continue evolving with our customers’ supply chain needs and create the intermodal solution of the future.”

The Quantum team provides 24/7 oversight of every Quantum load and can quickly detect and resolve issues before they impact final delivery. Service and technology integration allow the Quantum team to identify variability and recommend an alternate solution among standard intermodal, expedited intermodal and over-the-road.

“Quantum provides the exceptional intermodal service needed to consistently meet the demands of the most complex freight,” said Spencer Frazier, executive vice president of marketing and sales at J.B. Hunt. “Its solutions are flexible to address supply chain challenges in real time. Customers have access to multiple modes for unexpected concerns such as potential delays, volume surges or production issues.”

Quantum is a premium intermodal service, and pricing will vary based on need. Customers can anticipate cost to range between that of traditional intermodal service and over-the-road service. Based on analysis of J.B. Hunt 360°® transactions and annual bid activity, J.B. Hunt estimates that as many as 7 to 11 million loads of freight support conversion from over-the-road truck service to intermodal service. Converting over-the-road highway freight to rail intermodal is the most widely available ground transportation solution for cutting carbon emissions, reducing a shipment’s carbon footprint by an average of 60 percent compared to over-the-road truck transportation.

The name of the groundbreaking service is a nod to J.B. Hunt and BNSF’s (then Santa Fe Railway) historic effort to bring rail and trucking together into a streamlined service. In 1989, the two launched the industry’s first modern intermodal transportation solution – also named Quantum – with 150 trailers. The growth was explosive, leading to more innovations: double stacking containers, creating company-owned chassis and adding onsite terminals and express gates.

Recent efforts by J.B. Hunt and BNSF to improve intermodal service efficiency helped lay the groundwork for Quantum. In 2022, the two launched a joint initiative to improve capacity in the intermodal marketplace while also meeting the expanding needs of customers. This included plans from J.B. Hunt to grow intermodal capacity to as many as 150,000 containers in the next few years. BNSF committed to creating additional capacity at existing intermodal facilities in the near term and also their intention to build a new state-of-the-art master planned rail facility in Southern California, the Barstow International Gateway, serving the Southern California ports. Together, their efforts helped address container velocity and service efficiency during a volatile market.

J.B. Hunt and BNSF announced the new service during a keynote at the FreightWaves F3: Future of Freight Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In September, J.B. Hunt purchased the brokerage operations of BNSF Logistics, an affiliate of BNSF Railway Company.

DHL FIL DHL has entered into a multi-year agreement with the International Luge Federation (FIL), offering logistical support for athletes, as well as marketing and hospitality equipment.

The logistics partnership will start during the winter season of 2023/2024, launching with the First Ebersprächer Luge World Cup in Lake Placid (USA) in December. DHL will manage FIL's logistics for further events and competitions over the years, including the 2026 Winter Olympics in Milan-Cortina D'Ampezzo (Italy).

"We are excited to partner with FIL, where we both value speed, precision and teamwork. DHL brings years of experience in transporting winter sports equipment, and we look forward to supporting the athletes at various racetracks around the world," says Patrick Dexheimer, managing director at DHL Global Event Logistics GmbH.

DHL has an appreciation of winter sports, exemplified by its partnerships with other esteemed organizations like the German Bobsleigh, Luge, and Skeleton Federation (BSD) and the International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation (IBSF). These partnerships not only reflect DHL's passion for winter sports but also highlights DHL's commitment in supporting and enhancing the world of winter athletes through their logistics expertise.

"We are excited about this new partnership as DHL is a reliable logistics partner with a wealth of experience in winter sports and a global delivery capacity. We are eager to share this journey ahead, bringing the thrill of this sport around the world," says Einars Fogelis, president at FIL.

The sport of luge looks back on more than 100 years of tradition in winter sports. The pillars of the sport are formed by athleticism, technically demanding equipment and the driving skills of the individual athlete. When navigating the perilous ice tunnel, precision and speed are of utmost importance - characteristics that also form the basis for DHL's services.

Port of Los Angeles container dwellThe International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) has elected Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka as vice president.

Seroka will continue his current duties as head of the nation’s busiest port while representing the North American region of IAPH in the volunteer role. He began his duties at the conclusion of the World Ports 2023 conference, this week in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

Founded in 1955, IAPH is a non-governmental organization headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Over the past six decades, IAPH has developed into a global alliance of ports, representing today some 177 ports and 147 port-related businesses in 84 countries. Its member ports together handle well over 60% of the world’s seaborne trade and more than 60% of the world container traffic.

“Throughout his career, Gene Seroka has shown incredible leadership and a strong commitment to helping address the critical issues facing ports around the globe,” said Masahiko Furuichi, Secretary General of IAPH. “We are honored to have his expertise and depth of experience as we navigate these issues and search for collaborative solutions with our IAPH members.”

“I am humbled and deeply grateful to my colleagues for electing me to this position,” said Seroka. “Global collaboration and communication are essential if we are to solve the enormous challenges facing our industry, many of which extend beyond borders and require international cooperation. Under the visionary leadership of incoming IAPH President Jens Meier, CEO of the Hamburg Port Authority, I believe that IAPH can be the driving force for helping achieve meaningful gains on pressing port industry issues, like sustainability, workforce development and innovation.”

Under Seroka’s leadership, the Port of Los Angeles has been at the forefront of efforts to decarbonize shipping, reduce air pollution and minimize the port industry's overall environmental footprint. The Port is currently working with partners around the world to establish Green Shipping Corridors to accelerate emissions reductions along major shipping routes, and to step up the use of cleaner fuels and transportation technologies.

While serving as director of the Port of Los Angeles, Seroka has also championed workforce development, advocating for policies and programs that put workers and their welfare, safety and economic opportunity first. Seroka has been an equally strong advocate internationally for more innovation and broader technology use in the maritime industry, including digitization of the supply chain.

“The urgency of the issues facing ports today are unprecedented,” added Seroka. “I believe IAPH is an ideal venue for facilitating collaboration, problem solving and best practice sharing within the port industry.”

The IAPH Board is comprised of a president and six vice presidents, with each vice president elected to represent a region of the globe. Seroka will represent the North American region on the Board, which is charged with establishing IAPH’s governing principles and decision making regarding its operation, financing and structure.

Port of Koper Austria partnersThe traditional receptions for Port of Koper's business partners in Austria and the Czech Republic attracted more than 400 guests.

On Wednesday, 24 October, we gathered in the picturesque surroundings of the Natural History Museum in Vienna, while a day later we met at the Prague City Hall. Representatives of the Koper port community also attended the events.

In recent years, the traditional event has grown beyond its original scope and has become not only a place to socialise, but also an opportunity for business networking and strengthening partnership ties. The past successes of the Port of Koper are largely due to its business partners and customers, who are a key link in the logistics chain.

The Austrian market is the most important for the Port of Koper and Slovenia. We opened our representative office in Vienna in 1968, which means that we have been present in Austria for more than 50 years. “Over the years, we have worked together to overcome challenges, achieve goals, grow, develop and meet our business plans. We have forged genuine and strong bonds, which are reflected in our shared achievements. Last year, we handled more than 23 million tonnes of various goods at the Port of Koper, of which more than 30% were destined for the Austrian market,” said Nevenka Kržan, President of the Management Board of the Port of Koper, at the reception in Vienna.

As we believe that the Port of Koper can offer even more to its partners, we are already implementing a number of activities and projects to expand our facilities and increase the storage capacity of our terminals, in particular the Container Terminal, which is also of strategic importance for the Port of Koper.

The day after the reception in Vienna, most of our colleagues and representatives of the Port of Koper community continued their journey to the Czech Republic, where we organised a reception for the local logistics partners. More than 140 guests attended the event at the Prague City Hall. “The Czech Republic is an extremely important hinterland market for the Port of Koper, especially in the container and car segments. It has been a few years since the last official reception, but during this period we have invested heavily in the modernisation and development of the port infrastructure. All with the aim of meeting the needs of the growing market,” said Ms. Kržan, President of the Management Board, at the event.

The reception was also an excellent opportunity for introducing the new representative of the Port of Koper for the Czech and Slovak markets, Igor Pamič. “I am delighted to be part of our extended family and to have been welcomed so warmly. I would like to see the Port of Koper continue to work constructively with its business partners in the Czech Republic. I will make every effort to further strengthen our ties and extend my full support to all our customers,” said Pamič.

The company will organise two more receptions – in Bratislava and Budapest in mid-November.

transport logistic southeast demand From November 1 to 3, 2023, the key players in the airfreight, transport and logistics sector will meet for the first time at transport logistic Southeast Asia and air cargo Southeast Asia.

They are looking forward to establish, maintain or expand contacts with the Southeast Asian market on the approximately 10,000 sqm of exhibition space at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore. With 135 exhibitors from 23 countries, the exhibition space is sold out. The demand clearly shows that the Southeast Asian market is becoming increasingly important for international companies.

Due to the challenges of the past years, many companies are currently using a China+1 strategy to expand their supplier network and relocate production or branches to new locations with attractive conditions. Singapore and other Southeast Asian countries offer a good opportunity to diversify and increase the resilience of supply chains. Singapore is already an important hub for trade to and from Asia, so many of the world's logistics service providers are already based there or are increasingly looking for local cooperation partners.

Visitors of the transport logistic Southeast Asia and air cargo Southeast Asia will have the opportunity to find out about business opportunities in Southeast Asian and can network with 135 well-known exhibitors from 23 countries from the transport and logistics sector as well as the sea and air freight sector. The exhibitor spectrum could hardly be more diverse. In addition to companies from Southeast Asia, companies from North America, Europe and the Middle East are also strongly represented. Exhibitors include Northlink Aviation, DP World, duisport, DHL, R-Bag Group, Liege Airport, and Gebrüder Weiss, for example.

The international country pavilions from Singapore, the Netherlands, Germany and China also record a high level of participation. Companies such as Singapore Airlines, SATSACO GROUP, GUUD, Crossover Asset Management, SFS Global, Halcon Primo Logistics and Commonwealth Kokubu Logistics will be exhibiting at the joint booth of the host country Singapore.

Asia Pacific is also one of the most important markets in the air cargo sector. From a strategic point of view, the timing of air cargo Southeast Asia is therefore perfect for initiating important business deals and establishing contacts in this growth market. Numerous global and regional players in the industry such as Boeing, Emirates SkyCargo, Singapore Airlines, United Cargo, Jettainer, Garuda Indonesia, MAS Kargo, Vietjet Cargo and ACL Airshop have signed up.

"Southeast Asia is a dynamic hub for trade and commerce. The transport logistic Southeast Asia gives visitors access to a wide range of market opportunities. The show provides the platform to connect with the right people from the region and unlock growth potential. We look forward to a wide-ranging conference program focusing on digitalisation, resilience, and sustainability that will discuss the current and upcoming issues in the logistics industry with a broad audience," said Michael Wilton, CEO & Managing Director of MMI Asia.

Teleport VietJetTeleport, the leading air logistics player in Southeast Asia, is pleased to announce a new partnership with VietJetAir Cargo.

Both companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the Air Cargo Southeast Asia 2023 event in Singapore today. This partnership enables Teleport and VietJetAir Cargo to mutually extend its network, combining Teleport’s largest Southeast Asia air cargo network of over 80 destinations with VietJet’s global flight network.

Francis Antony, Cargo Group Head of Teleport says, “Our partnership with VietJetAir Cargo is timely as Vietnam is clearly growing to be a key market in Southeast Asia, with increasing manufacturing lines shifting to the country in recent years, contributing to more than 20% to the country’s GDP in 2022. . VietJetAIr Cargo will be able to leverage on our freighter capacity and we are able to move goods across key lanes such as Kuala Lumpur to Vietnam. Together, we will bolster economic connectivity between Vietnam and the region, ensuring seamless connectivity and enhanced services for both our customers.”

Nelson Wu, Vietjet Air Cargo Managing Director says, “Our global supply chain capabilities will be extensively bolstered following Teleport’s partnership. We will be able to serve businesses in diversified areas and at quicker speeds, providing comprehensive logistics solutions to our customers worldwide. This especially empowers our businesses in Southeast Asia to engage in global trade with greater ease and confidence in the coming time."

APM DP World initiative APM Terminals and DP World today announce an initiative to accelerate decarbonisation of the world’s terminals through the widespread electrification of container handling equipment (CHE).

The initiative is grounded in research showing the tipping point for battery-electric CHE can be reached within the next 2-8 years with the right actions from industry stakeholders.

The research findings and roadmap for electrification of CHE are the subject of an industry White Paper, currently endorsed by Eurogate, Port of Kalundborg, and Smart Freight Centre.

CHE is a critical enabler of port operations and is used to move containers on and off ships across the world’s 940 container ports[1]. In 2020, the global fleet of CHE enabled the transportation of 815 million TEUs[2], with a total value of USD 8.1 trillion[3]. Estimated at 100,000-120,000 units, the global CHE fleet is responsible for 10-15 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum (scope 1 and scope 2).

Research has found that the challenges hampering the uptake of battery-electric CHE can be mostly overcome. An inflection point for battery-electric CHE to replace diesel CHE as the more affordable, attractive and accessible option can occur in the next 2-8 years, provided that industry stakeholders take action now. The White Paper identifies key levers and related actions that can be taken by the players across the value chain including terminal operators, OEM’s, port authorities, affiliated government entities and shipping line operators.

“Let me be clear: we need to accelerate our work in decarbonisation, and we need to do it now. I am happy to say the research we conducted through Systemiq and ZEnMo strongly backs that a tipping point for the electrification for [CHE] is within reach in this decade. We are now calling for action for the entire port ecosystem to accelerate towards this milestone. It is important for us to stand together, take concrete action with several industry partners for this to happen”, says Keith Svendsen, CEO of APM Terminals.

"Battery-electric equipment in ports is a realistic, achievable and affordable way to dramatically reduce carbon emissions. Throughout my career I've seen many industry players talk about various methods for achieving net-zero, but I've never been so convinced by one tactic's ability to accelerate decarbonisation. It is my sincere hope that the findings in the White Paper can be used by the entire industry to galvanise real change with electric CHEs", says Tiemen Meester, COO of Ports & Terminals, DP World.

The research mentioned provides for a number of actions that can be taken to reach a tipping point, including making zero-emission operation a requirement as part of new concessions in ports, and terminal operators and equipment manufacturers working together to scale up demand. Furthermore, suppliers can work on further developing their supply chains and standardising certain components, with the support of terminal operators.

“Essentially, what we want is to provide a healthier, cleaner, and more efficient workplace for the thousands working at the terminals and living in the communities around them. And while electrification of of the container handling equipment is one piece of the puzzle, we believe it is one piece that can be addressed relatively easier and faster than others if we work together and avoid unnecessary complexity”, says Sahar Rashidbeigi, Global Head of Decarbonisation at APM Terminals.

APM Terminals and DP World encourage industry peers to review the research and support its goals. As a next step, the partners are preparing to mobilise industry-wide collaboration around CHE electrification and zero-emission port operations.
