Continuing voluntary environmental initiative improves port air quality

Maersk Line has announced that the company's environmental initiative to switch to cleaner fuel at North American West Coast ports has reached the milestone of the 1000th vessel call. 111 vessels have participated since the program inception in 2006. The initiative has reduced Maersk Line fleet's vessel-related air emissions by over 2,400 tons when calling the ports of Los Angeles and Oakland in California (US), Tacoma in Washington (US) and Vancouver in Canada. Maersk Line's pilot program is part of the company's on-going commitment to environmentally responsible operations. The program has been aligned with and supports the significant air quality improvement efforts by the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, California's Goods Movement Action Plan, the California Air Resources Board initiatives and the Northwest Ports Clean Air Strategy to improve air quality in these ports.

This continuing initiative provides substantial reductions in key pollutants that have potential health effects. Maersk Line has achieved an 86% annual reduction in particulate matter, a 95% reduction in sulphur oxides (SOx), and a 12% reduction in nitrogen oxides (NOx). The first vessel that performed the fuel switch was SINE MÆRSK in Los Angeles on March 31, 2006. There were 212 switches in 2006, 351 in 2007, 425 in 2008 and 12 through January 20, 2009.

Maersk Line voluntarily switches from "bunker" fuel with relatively high sulphur content to low-sulphur distillate fuel on the main and auxiliary engines of its vessels while underway in port areas and in the auxiliaries while in California ports, and in the auxiliary engines while at dock in Tacoma and Vancouver. The details of the program vary depending on geography and specific port programs. The fuel switch enables the ports to achieve immediate emissions reductions, unlike shore-side power programs such as cold ironing that take years to implement on this scale. The company continues to research and develop a variety of vessel energy efficiencies and emission reduction technologies despite the changes of the economic outlook.

"In 2006, Maersk Line took an unprecedented step to reduce vessel air emissions by voluntarily converting to a lower polluting diesel fuel in our main and auxiliary engines in these ports," said Dr. Lee Kindberg, Director of the Environment for North America, Maersk Inc. "Maersk Line is convinced that mobile ship emission control solutions like fuel switches and catalytic converters provide great promise in effectively reducing emissions from ships in port areas. Mobile solutions can be implemented relatively rapidly, require no expensive shore infrastructure and do not shift emissions to other sources of power. This initiative has provided immediate air quality benefits at no cost to the taxpayer and without shifting air pollution to another source", she continued.

"Congratulations to Maersk Line for completing the 1000th vessel call to west coast ports using cleaner fuels. By voluntarily switching to low-sulphur distillate fuel, you have become the environmental leader in the shipping industry. California is a healthier state due to your commitment to cleaner air quality," said Alan Lowenthal, California State Senator (Chair, Senate Transportation and Housing Committee).

Maersk Line has received numerous awards for these efforts including the Clean Air Excellence Award from the San Pedro Bay Ports; the Clean Air Award for the Advancement of Air Pollution Technology from the South Coast Air Quality Management District; the Clean Air Leadership Award from the Coalition of Clean Air; and the Carrie Chapman Catt Leadership Award from the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles. The Port Metro Vancouver administers a Differentiated Harbor Dues Program that "promotes attainable emissions reduction goals for ocean-going vessels and rewards those who excel in environmental stewardship". Maersk Line has attained a Gold designation in this emission reduction program. Maersk Line is also participating in the Ports of Long Angeles/Long Beach Vessel Speed Reduction Program and the Main Engine Fuel Switch Incentive Program.

The cost of the program to Maersk Line has been over USD 18 million to date.

Supply Chain Labour Market Information Updated: Will Enable Accurate Forecasting Down to the Local Level

February 20, 2009, Mississauga, Ontario – The Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (the CSCSC) has responded to the needs of stakeholders with an update of labour-market information (LMI) achieved through a process developed to ensure that an accurate picture of the sector’s human resources is consistently captured in the future.

In a sector study completed in 2005, stakeholders identified the need to collect and monitor LMI as a high-priority action item. As a first follow-up step, the CSCSC completed a phase I LMI project in 2007 to gather input from the sector about the types of LMI that were most required. Two further LMI-related projects resulted: a phase II project, through which LMI tools are being developed for use by stakeholders, and the LMI-update and NOC-awareness project through which labour-market data has been updated to reflect the current state of the sector.

The 2005 study used data from the 2001 Canadian Census and a ratio, developed by Industry Canada, applied to an aggregate of the total labour market for the 26 NOC (National Occupational Classification) codes considered to comprise the sector. Through its LMI-update project, led by RDA Global, the CSCSC has defined the ratio used in the sector study and applied it to recent Labour Force Survey data to establish current statistics for the sector. Based on recent data, the sector now employs 732,000 Canadians, up from the 701,880 people estimated to work in the supply chain in 2004.

The new LMI-update process will enable an understanding of trends, overall and by occupation, on a national, regional or local level, and provide an accurate baseline in terms of labour supply that firms and educators can use for forecasting purposes. On a larger scale, the data can also be used in addressing issues related to inter-provincial mobility and labour-market transitions, for example.

NOC-Awareness Workshops
A second component of this project is aimed at boosting the use of NOC codes by the sector’s employers in their HR-management activities. Three information sessions will be held across Canada, as follows:
• Moncton – Wednesday, March 11
• Calgary – Wednesday, March 18
• Mississauga – Thursday, March 19

The Government of Canada’s NOC system provides a foundation for improving HR practices in the supply chain sector. Although the system is used regularly by many people as they compile, analyze and communicate information about occupations, awareness of the system is still relatively low. The CSCSC’s information sessions will highlight the benefits and encourage the use of NOC codes, which can be used, for example, by employers to:
• Write job descriptions
• Develop performance measures and evaluation programs
• Develop recruitment campaigns and retention strategies
• Identify training requirements

To participate in one of these information sessions, register with Margie Stefanich, by calling
905-897-6700 or 1-866-616-3468 or emailing

2008 Domestic Intermodal Posts Best Results Since 2004

2008 Domestic Intermodal Posts Best Results Since 2004: Fourth Quarter Shows Expected Declines; Domestic Loads Drop Slightly

CALVERTON, MD, February 20, 2009 – Domestic intermodal volume posted a solid 2.9% overall gain in 2008, according to the new Intermodal Market Trends & Statistics, a comprehensive intermodal volume data report published by the Intermodal Association of North America. Although overall volumes declined slightly by 2.1% in the fourth quarter, domestic container performance remained healthy through the end of 2008. While its overall growth slowed to 4.4% - less than a half of Q3’s gain – growth in 53-foot containers was an exceptionally strong 10% for the quarter.

International intermodal volume declined in every IANA region during Q4 2008; dropping a total of 11.1% and continuing its steady decline for the seventh consecutive quarter. This quarterly loss contributed to the largest year-over-year drop of intermodal loadings – 7% – since IANA began keeping quarterly records in 1998. International containers had been the main driver of intermodal growth prior to 2007.

DB Schenker expands its Vienna-Albern location

Hub for land transport, air and ocean freight and warehousing to be enlarged • Terminal to receive investment of about 13 million euros

(Essen/Vienna, February 20, 2009) DB Schenker is investing about 13 million euros to expand the logistics terminal in Vienna-Albern operated by Schenker & Co AG. The site primarily serves as a hub for land transport, air, and ocean freight and is also a warehouse logistics location. The existing facility had reached its capacity limits.

“Vienna-Albern is a perfect location for our Eastern European routes and a hub for imports and exports between other parts of Europe and the world. These were the reasons to invest in the future and expand this terminal,” said Karl Nutzinger, member of the Board of Management of Schenker AG, responsible for the European Land Transport business unit in Europe.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the new 4,100 square meter freight-handling hall took place on February 12th. After the expansion has been completed the site will offer customers a 16,400 square meter logistics warehouse as well as an 8,400 square meter freight handling hall, located on a site with about 82,300 square meters in total space. The freight handling hall is equipped with an under floor chain conveyor system that has a capacity of approximately 590 palettes per hour. The new facility will also have the latest equipment to put together and deconsolidate airfreight palettes.

As part of efforts to reduce CO2 emissions throughout the entire DB Group by 20 percent until the year 2020, the previous oil heating unit used at the Albern site will be replaced with a CO2-neutral, wood chip heating system, an investment of 600,000 euros.

Retail Container Traffic to Fall 11.8 Percent in First Half of 2009

WASHINGTON, February 6, 2009 – After ending 2008 down 7.9 percent, cargo volume at the nation’s major retail container ports is expected to drop at an even faster pace during the first half of 2009 as the economic recession continues, according to the monthly Port Tracker report released today by the National Retail Federation and IHS Global Insight.

Final data for 2008 showed volume for the year at 15.2 million Twenty-Foot-Equivalent Units, compared with 16.5 million TEU in 2007, a decline of 7.9 percent and the lowest total since 2004, when 14 million TEU moved through the ports. One TEU is one 20-foot container or its equivalent.

Volume for the first six months of 2009 is forecast at 6.6 million TEU, down 11.8 percent from the 7.5 million TEU seen during the same period in 2008. Port Tracker forecasts only six months into the future, so an estimate of volume for the entire year won’t be available until this summer.

“2008 was one of the most challenging years retailers have seen, and all indications are that 2009 won’t be any better,” NRF Vice President for Supply Chain and Customs Policy Jonathan Gold said. “Unfortunately, cargo volume at the ports reflects retailers’ anticipated sales, and NRF expects that sales will get worse before they get better. Retailers are only going to import what they can sell.”

U.S. ports surveyed handled 1.06 million TEU in December, the last month for which actual numbers are available. That was down 13.9 percent from November and 17.2 percent from December 2007, and made December the 18th month in a row to see a year-over-year decline. The last month to see a year-over-year increase was July 2007, when the 1.44 million TEU moved through the ports was up 3.4 percent from July 2006.

January was estimated at 1.04 million TEU, down 15.8 percent from January 2008, and February, traditionally the slowest month of the year, is forecast at 1 million TEU, down 18.7 percent from 2008. March is forecast at 1.08 million TEU, down 7 percent from a year earlier, April at 1.14 million TEU, down 10.1 percent; May at 1.16 million TEU, down 11 percent, and June at 1.19 million TEU, down 8.5 percent.

“The combined influence of the recession and the usual winter slowdown will result in extremely weak February port traffic,” IHS Global Insight Economist Paul Bingham said. “Import container traffic is projected to be weak through June because of the underlying reduced demand during the global recession.”

All U.S. ports covered by Port Tracker – Los Angeles/Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle and Tacoma on the West Coast; New York/New Jersey, Hampton Roads, Charleston and Savannah on the East Coast, and Houston on the Gulf Coast – are rated “low” for congestion, the same as last month.

Port Tracker, which is produced by the economic research, forecasting and analysis firm IHS Global Insight for NRF, looks at inbound container volume, the availability of trucks and railroad cars to move cargo out of the ports, labor conditions and other factors that affect cargo movement and congestion. The report is free to NRF retail members. Subscription information is available at or by calling (202) 783-7971.

Success factors for logistics - Dr. Thomas C. Lieb, Chairman of the Management Board of Schenker AG

In these days of constantly changing demands, service providers have to offer solutions at an early stage

(Helsinki, February 5, 2009) Four vital conditions for lasting success in the logistics business were named by Dr. Thomas C. Lieb, Chairman of the Management Board of Schenker AG, Essen, in Helsinki today. Speaking to around 1,000 delegates at the 24th Logistics Seminar of the Finnish Association of Purchasing and Logistics, Lieb examined the factors required for success in times of changing demands.

“We can assume that the trend towards globalization is here to stay. If the latest studies are to be believed, what globalization actually means is that certain industries will concentrate in selected regions,” said Lieb. As an example of this trend he quoted Singapore, which is evolving into a focal point for biomedicine. As a consequence, logistics companies have to be present right there at the new industrial centers with the corresponding infrastructure and specialists.

“What’s more, the requirements of the customers are constantly changing. There is increasing demand for tailor-made solutions,” continued Lieb. He added that logistics services providers would only be able to negotiate with their customers on a level playing field if they could offer the necessary expertise in the product concerned combined with highly qualified human resources.

Referring to a study conducted by WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management, Lieb stated that even sharply rising oil prices would have only a negligible effect on the customers’ total procurement costs. Over the long term, the increases in wage and transportation costs facing the customers would not curb the international division of labor. What this means for logistics providers is that they have to come up with satisfactory solutions in response to steadily rising demand for worldwide supply chains.
Finally, Lieb dealt with the issue of sustainability: “The sensivity of our customers for sutainability has grown over the years, visibly. We can expect the importance of green logistics to grow in future.” He stated that it was vital to reduce CO2 emissions by offering an intelligent combination of all transport modes. “From the overall viewpoint, providers of logistics services have to be adaptable and expand their networks, invest in the right human resources and be able to offer solutions at an early stage,” concluded Lieb.

For more than 20 years, this event has been organized jointly by the Finnish Association of Purchasing and Logistics, LOGY, and Establish Finland Oy. It ranks as one of the major forums for the exchange of information in the logistics business in Northern Europe.

Maersk Line Announcements


Maersk Line is pleased to announce the full extent of revisions to our current South Atlantic Express (SAE) service including the addition of calls to the Port of Savannah and the Port of Wilmington. The addition of these calls and adjustments to the overall schedule will improve transit times and broaden coverage for this service to benefit of our customers

With a significant capacity for temperature controlled cargo shipments, as well as improved transit times for all cargo, the new SAE service provides our customers with expanded geographic scope and a better product. Consistent with our efforts to ensure stability within the Latin America-North America trade lanes, the revised SAE service also leverages a southbound call at Miami mid-week for improved service and convenience to the general commodities export market. Furthermore, with available connections through the vital port of Puerto Cortes utilizing our Expreso service, the SAE creates additional opportunities for our customers while continuing to offer the same high level of reliability and quality of service.

This service also signals the initiation of Maersk Line service to the Port of Wilmington, North Carolina, with a four-day transit from Santo Tomas and full gate availability on Saturdays in Wilmington for pickup and deliveries.

"We are pleased that, even in the face of challenging times, we can provide innovative and dynamic solutions for our customers. The call at the Port of Wilmington also represents an expansion of the scope of our services to a young and growing port of call," said Bill Woodhour, Sales Manager for North America.

"As this is a new port offering, we have worked closely with our existing customers to ensure their needs continue to be met, and we are excited that this revised product introduces Maersk Line's quality, reliable service to a new and eager customer base," continued Woodhour.

As previously announced, this weekly service reflects omission of the northbound call to Miami, and removal of service to the Port of Charleston from the schedule. The Miami adjustment will become effective with the sailing of the Maersk Tarragona, voyage 0908, departing Santo Tomas on 8 February 2009. The final sailing from Charleston will be the southbound departure of the Maersk Tarragona, voyage 0911, on 3 March 2009. The revised South Atlantic Express service will make its first northbound call to Savannah on 5 March 2009 by the Maersk Tangier, voyage 0910, followed by its initial call to Wilmington on 6 March 2009.

The new SAE rotation is as follows: Savannah (US), Wilmington (US), Norfolk (US), Miami (US), Puerto Cortes (Honduras) and Santo Tomas (Guatemala).


4 February 2009

Unsustainable rates and improved demand lead to rate increases effective 1 March and 1 April 2009. The General Rate Increase will be USD 25 per TEU thus totalling USD 50 per TEU.

During the 4th quarter 2008, the industry has experienced declining freight rates in the Europe to Asia trade. A trend that has continued into 2009. In addition, hereto, there are now indicators that demand is increasing due to amongst others the weak Sterling and Euro.

As a result of increasing costs associated with the growing demand and to ensure sustainable freight rates, Maersk Line will enact a commodity rate increases for export cargo from Europe to Asia. The increase is also necessary to ensure that we can continue to support the trade and provide our customers with the service reliability and customer service they are accustomed to when shipping with Maersk Line.
