Drewry Many exHanjin Ships to Remain Idle for Some Time

first_imgzoom Some five months after the collapse of Korean shipping group Hanjin Shipping, more than two-thirds of all Hanjin-operated containerships remains inactive, according to shipping consultancy Drewry.Although a number of ships was auctioned for a total of USD 460 million so far, Drewry estimates that there remains up to as much as 150,000 TEU of Hanjin-owned ships still for sale.Hanjin’s demise exposed the frailty of container lines in an era of ultra-low freight rates and caused panic among cargo owners with assets aboard their ships. After the logistical chaos has been cleared up, what has happened to those vessels?An immediate impact could be seen on the containership idle fleet, which surged after 98 ships with an aggregate capacity of around 610,000 TEU were suddenly left without employ. The idle fleet went from 904,000 TEU in mid-August to 1.7 million TEU in mid-November.The declining stature of the idle fleet from December onwards is in large part due to some of those ex-Hanjin ships being re-chartered.Four vessels of 15,000 TEU in total have been scrapped, two of which were owned by Hanjin and none older than 20 years, while another 31 ships of 134,000 TEU have found new service elsewhere.Non-operating charterers have managed to find replacement lessors for 30 ships so far. Maersk Line has shown the biggest appetite for the former Hanjin fleet by chartering 11 vessels of 77,000 TEU, the largest being two 13,000 TEU units that were sold at auction to unnamed buyers in December for around USD 131 million apiece, according to unconfirmed media reports. Maersk is deploying the vessels in the 2M Alliance Asia-Europe network.There remain some 63 ex-Hanjin ships with close to 460,000 TEU worth of nominal capacity that are parked up. At least eight vessels should be back on the water fairly quickly.With such a glut of containerships already available and limited demand growth it is debatable just how big a market they can attract even at knock-down prices. The biggest and youngest ships are likely to have the biggest pull, according to Drewry.last_img read more

Cautious optimism for 2018 as crude oil hits US60 a barrel

first_imgFor the first time in a long time, crude oil has hit US$60 a barrel.But there needs to be cautious optimism because there are still concerns.Auspice Capital CIO Tim Pickering said 2017 wasn’t a horrible year by any stretch, explaining it was a year of transition.“We saw stability come back into the market,” he explained. “I wouldn’t say that anybody was shooting the lights out so to speak, but as we came out of the summer, we saw good momentum in crude oil and we predicted it would get to 60 bucks.”When he looked at oil from a global perspective, he remained positive.“U.S. inventories have really started to draw, or decrease, so the market is indeed rebalancing,” Pickering said. “The structure of the oil curve, the pricing curve in the future, is such that it disincentivizes storage and it really accelerates withdraws.”Exports to China, the worlds largest importer of oil, are also strong, but export problems due to a lack of pipelines persist which has lead to a discount of about CAN$24 a barrel for Canadian crude.However, Pickering believes even that has lead to some good investment opportunities.“If you get a rally in global crude, it’ll bring Canadian crude up with it, we’re starting from a much lower price point, and so if we get a $10 rally in global crudes and Canadian crude moves up that $10, it’s a much better return given it’s at a lower price,” he said.last_img read more

TN farmers to double up as Aghoris in UP to take on

first_imgTiruchirappalli: Over 100 Tamil Nadu ryots will dress up like Aghori sadhus (Shiva followers) and seek alms in Uttar Pradesh to pay for filing their nomination to the Varanasi constituency from where Prime Minister Narendra Modi is contesting, farmers’ leader P Ayyakannu said Sunday. This plan is to try and bring back focus on the plight of farmers besides collecting money (about Rs 25,000 for each nomination) for filing papers, Ayyakannu said. “We plan to dress up like Aghori sadhus and seek alms,” Ayyakannu, president of the National South Indian Rivers Inter-Linking Farmers Association, told PTI in an interview. Ayyakannu had said on Saturday that 111 farmers from Tamil Nadu would contest against Modi from Varanasi if the BJP does not assure them of fulfilling their demands such as profitable prices for farm produce and include it in the party manifesto. Had the Centre fulfilled their demands following several protests in Delhi in 2017, he said they would not have been forced to resort to such “methods.” Ayyakannu said “our Aghori sadhus protest mode will help people realise that our demands are just and fair.” “We are also thinking of holding a nude protest to highlight our demands like we did in Delhi,” he said. The farmers leader had held various forms of protest including entering the sea in Tamil Nadu to highlight their demands. In November 2018, farmers led by Ayyakannu had gone to Delhi with two skulls, to take part in a kisan rally, alleging it belonged to their colleagues who had allegedly committed suicide over debt. A key demand, loan waiver, is doable if only the government has the will to do it, according to him. “The total farmers loan outstandings is only about Rs 75,000 crore across the country,” Ayyakannu said. He claimed that very huge corporate bad loans were being waived by banks. Ayyakannu wanted to know if farmers who fed the country did not deserve a better deal from the government. “Our demand for loan waiver is just and fair. We don’t have profitable prices for our produce. How do you expect us to clear up our crop loans?” he asked. Loan waiver from all banks, pension for farmers over 60 years, a complete ban on genetically modified seeds and food products,linking rivers, comprehensive personal insurance are the key demands, the farmers leader added.last_img read more

Delhi govt started work of laying pipelines says CM

first_imgNEW DELHI: The Delhi government started work of laying pipelines across Delhi and work on the construction of 10,000 streets and roads are also in progress, asserted Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal from a rally at Wazirpur of Chandni Chowk constituency. Accusing the Centre ofcreating hurdles for Delhi’s development, the AAP leader said he faced several obstructions at various stages to get clearances from the Centre. He said the people of Delhi pay Rs 1.5 lakh crore worth Income Tax and receive only Rs 325 crore from the Centre. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder”Why should we pay so much and get so less in return? What have Delhiites done to the central government to deserve this? The situation is similar to the time before India got independence. First Britishers looted us, now the central government is looting us,” the chief minister said. “Just for political enmity, PM Modi stopped the development work for the common man of Delhi. Last time you voted for him, but this time do not vote for him, otherwise he would not let me work for development,” he said. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsWhile addressing the gathering, CM Arvind Kejriwal said,

”Four years ago, you elected and gave a huge responsibility to a humble man like me. I am forever grateful for this favour. We will never forget it. We are ready to sacrifice our lives for the people of Delhi. For the past 70 years, no party has done as much work as Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi.” He added, “In the past four years we have done so much, but the Modi government has left no stone unturned in creating hurdles in our work. We want to make schools, hospitals, mohalla clinics, install CCTV’s but they are the ones who are stopping us.” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said full statehood for Delhi will ensure that children scoring even 60 per cent marks get admission in colleges in Delhi. Meanwhile, a big number of women participated in the ‘Jhadu Chalao, Gundagardi Bhagao’ March that was launched in Kalkaji Vidhan Sabha in presence of AAP South Delhi Candidate Raghav Chadha and Kalkaji MLA Avtar Singh. Such marches will be held through all legislative assemblies over the coming month. Raghav Chadha said, “South Delhi is plagued with politics of muscle and money power and so we have been ruled by goons and ruffians for a long time. Now you have a chance to weed out the politics of Intimidation and instead send a decent and sensitive person to the Parliament. This is your opportunity to vote for someone who is not abusive, makes women feel comfortable and safe and has the sensibility and sensitivity to serve the people right.”last_img read more

CM BJP manifesto fresh set of jumlas

first_imgNEW DELHI: AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Monday termed BJP’s manifesto as a “fresh set of jumlas” and said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah did not have the courage to say why demonetisation was done and farmers were pushed towards destruction.Reminding the PM of his party’s 2014 promise of granting full statehood to Delhi, CM Kejriwal said the present manifesto does not have any mention of it which meant that Modi is lying and in turn making it even more difficult for people to believe in him. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder”BJP unveils a fresh set of jumlas without telling the country what is the fate of its 2014 jumlas. Modi-Shah don’t have the courage to speak on why demonetisation was done ? What happened to two crore jobs? Why were farmers pushed towards destruction?” he said in a tweet. Eyeing to retain power, the BJP on Monday made a plethora of poll promises, including expeditious construction of Ram temple, firmly dealing with terrorism, doubling farmers’ income in the next three years, making India the third-largest economy globally by 2030, and scrapping Article 370 of the Constitution that gave a special status to J&K.last_img read more
