“K”LINE Awarded CDP’s “A List 2018” on Climate Change ― Earning Highest Rating “A” for Three Consecutive Years

“K” LINE is proud to announce that the company was recognized as “A List,” the top rating, on climate change from CDP, which is an international non-profit organization (NPO) engaging in activities for realizing sustainable economy, in “CDP 2018 Debriefing Session” held on January 22 in Tokyo. The“A List” is awarded to companies that are evaluated as global leaders in their response to climate change.

From among the companies that disclosed their climate change information in response to a questionnaire sent from CDP on behalf of 650 institutional investors with total assets of over 87 trillion US dollars, 126 companies whose measures against climate change such as emissions reduction activities in the reported year were regarded as outstanding were recognized in the A List last year. Japanese companies number 20 among these and only 7 companies were selected for three consecutive years.

In our medium-term management plan, we have set ESG (Environment, Society and Governance) initiatives as a key management issue. As for the field of the environment, we are advancing measures in accordance with “K” LINE Environmental Vision 2050 – Securing Blue Seas for Tomorrow -*. In particular, initiation of a framework “DRIVE GREEN NETWORK” for continually promoting environmental preservation activities while ensuring environmental compliance throughout the entire “K” Line Group bore fruit to gain the 3rd straight year to receive the A List rating.

As an environmental front runner, we will continue to aim for the realization of business – marine transportation being more environmentally low-loaded and highly efficient from which more people throughout the world can benefit.

American P&I Club reports positive progress on many fronts in 2019 New Year Report

Key indicators advance steadily: premium and tonnage increase while claims remain subdued

New York, January 24, 2019: The American P & I Club has recently issued a circular containing a progress report highlighting some of the latest Club metrics in regard to tonnage, premium, claims, investment income and free reserves as the 2019 renewal draws near.

Most of the Club’s key operational indicators show positive progress. Premium and tonnage have maintained their upward trajectory, claims have remained subdued – both in relation to attritional exposures and larger losses – and, despite heavy turbulence in the financial markets toward the end of 2018, the Club’s funds under investment have held up well.

Tonnage and premium development

  • The Club’s profile in this respect has remained broadly stable over the past twelve months
  • Class I (P & I) tonnage has grown by about 3%, Class II (FD & D) by 1%
  • Premium has increased by about 2% in regard to P & I entries, and by 1% for FD & D business
  • Grounds for optimism that these trends will continue into 2019 as the prospects for the maritime sector improve.

Development of retained claims

  • Frequency and severity of losses have shown a downward trend in recent years
  • Incurred claims at December 20, 2018 were 17% lower than those for 2017 at the same point of emergence
  • Figures augur well for 2018 policy year’s ultimate claims outturn going forward.

Development of Pool claims

  • 2014 through 2016 policy years continue to develop favorably
  • 2017 and 2018 are emerging at higher levels of aggregate loss
  • More a reversion to historical mean than indication of above-trend inflationary pressure.

Development of premium per gross ton (GT) and retained claims per GT

  • Important driver of premium pricing has been a steady decline in the average cost of claims
  • But average premium per ton has moved slightly upward since the beginning of 2018
  • Encouraging sign which reflects the Club’s policy of prudent risk pricing.

Investment performance

  • Return of 8.1% for 2017 was the best the Club had achieved in nearly a decade
  • Earnings for 2018 were challenged by the considerable turbulence experienced in the investment markets
  • Fund performance was flat at year-end, demonstrating resilience of the Club’s asset class selection

Development of statutory surplus/free reserves per GT

  • Remains consistent over recent years
  • Supported by a benign claims environment, prudent levels of risk pricing and respectable investment returns.

Eagle Ocean Marine (EOM)

  • American Club’s fixed premium facility, Eagle Ocean Marine, continues to complement Club activity
  • EOM compound premium growth over last three years nearly 20% per annum
  • Aggregate combined ratio less than 70% since 2011 inception to year-end 2018.

American Hellenic Hull Insurance Co. Ltd. (AHHIC)

  • AHHIC shows steady growth over first thirty months of operation
  • At year-end 2018, about 2,300 vessels within AHHIC portfolio, with broad range of domiciles and vessel types
  • Aggregate gross loss ratio for 2018 very favorable, aided by rising premium rates and growing profitability
  • American Club continues to benefit from substantial cross-selling opportunities.

Joe Hughes, Chairman & CEO, Shipowners Claims Bureau, Inc., Managers for the American Club said that the New Year’s report was intended to provide Members, their brokers and the Club’s many other friends and associates with a useful picture of the Club’s affairs – and those of its related businesses – at this important juncture in its continuing development.

He added: “As the American Club moves further into its second century of service to the global maritime community, it looks forward with its characteristic energy and enthusiasm to growing success in its expanding fields of enterprise over the years ahead.”

P&I Insurance

Protection and Indemnity insurance (commonly referred to as “P&I”) provides cover to shipowners and charterers against third-party liabilities encountered in their commercial operations; typical exposures include damage to cargo, pollution, death/injury or illness of passengers or crew or damage to docks and other installations.

Running in parallel with a ship’s hull and machinery cover, traditional P&I cover distinguishes itself from usual forms of marine insurance by being based on the not-for-profit principle of mutuality where Members of the Club are both the insurers and the assureds.

Evergreen Opens Four New Offices in Latin America

January 14, 2019 – In view of the growth potential in Latin American trade, Evergreen Line is continuing to establish its own offices at main service locations in the region. The move will strengthen the effectiveness of the line’s operations, improve its capability to react to market opportunities, optimize the efficiency of its network routing and enhance its competitiveness in the area.

Evergreen Line has just opened its own agency in Colombia following the establishments of other offices in Peru, Chile and Mexico over the past few months. In setting up these offices Evergreen confirms its continued commitment to serving the trade and economy of Latin American west coast region. The dedicated personnel at these locations will have responsibility for local marketing and sales, customer service, shipping documentation, ground transport and port operations.

In order to expand the container transport options for its customers in Far East – Latin American west coast trade, Evergreen has teamed up with partners to add two more trans-pacific services; these are in addition to the two currently operated by Evergreen. As a result the range of direct ports of call on offer via, the now four weekly services, has been expanded to Pusan (South Korea), Qingdao and Xiamen (China) and, in Latin America, Ensenada (Mexico) and Lirquen (Chile).

Although Latin America has an abundance of natural resources, a variety of common consumer goods are imported. The pattern of economic trade with East Asia is consequently complementary. The latter has a fully developed manufacturing industry base and, at the same time a requirement for the mineral resources, as well as the fruits, seafood and other agricultural products in which Latin America is so rich. The opposing seasonality of southern and northern hemispheres enhances this symbiosis and extends further the choices for Asian consumers.

Among the Latin American countries, Chile, with the longest coastline of any country in the world stretching to more than 4,300 kilometres, has an extraordinary range of climate patterns which endows it with a vast array of natural produce from both the land and the ocean. In response to customer demand for exporting such commodities, Evergreen has adjusted its service routings, greatly cutting down the transit time for Chilean exports to East Asia and therefore assisting local fresh produce exporters to take advantage of business opportunities.

Evergreen Line is committed to providing efficient shipping transportation throughout its global service network. In addition to an on-going fleet renewal program, the line has also expanded its regional operations in recent years. As of today, Evergreen Line has established its own agency offices in more than 30 countries around the world in the belief that this commitment will provide superior transport services for its customers.

Dachser wins German federal competition for sustainable urban logistics

DACHSER Emission-Free Delivery makes deliveries of groupage shipments in central Stuttgart sustainable

Berlin/Kempten, December 6, 2018. Dachser’s innovation project for zero-emissions groupage deliveries in central Stuttgart has won a federal award for sustainable urban logistics in Germany. Svenja Schulze, German federal environment minister, presented the award to Stefan Hohm, Corporate Director Corporate Solutions, Research & Development, in Berlin.

“Sustainable solutions are also desperately needed for heavy palleted goods shipments to city centers,” said Dr. Petra Seebauer, the publisher of industry journal “Logistik Heute” and CEO of EUREXPO. “By offering an integrated solution for Stuttgart that combines elements such as city hubs, electrically supported cargo bikes, electric trucks, and IT-controlled goods grouping and route planning, Dachser has taken the initiative and is setting an important example for this market segment to follow.” The jury also praised the fact that the solution is designed to be transferable and reflects both social and commercial considerations.

DACHSER Emission-Free Delivery

Dachser’s award-winning pilot project covers an area of some four square kilometers in central Stuttgart within which all groupage shipments to B2B and B2C customers are delivered with zero emissions. A FUSO eCanter all-electric light truck either delivers goods directly to customers or brings them to the microhub operated by partner VeloCARRIER. There, pallets are unloaded and shipments transferred to electrically supported cargo bikes for the delivery runs. Dachser will integrate an all-electric 18-ton Daimler eActros into these operations as soon as the vehicle is available. The charge point for the electric truck is located at Dachser’s Kornwestheim branch to the north of Stuttgart, which—like all the logistics provider’s branches in Germany—purchases 100 percent hydroelectric power. The electric trucks are driven by trainee truckers; this lets them get fully acquainted with electromobility from the outset.

DACHSER Emission-Free Delivery is built on a modular toolbox for city-center deliveries and can equally be implemented in other cities. Taking transportation as a whole—collection and line-haul are still performed with conventional diesel trucks—this new service reduces CO2 emissions per shipment by 24 percent, particulates emissions by 32 percent, and nitrogen oxide emissions by 26 percent.

“DACHSER Emission-Free Delivery in Stuttgart marks a promising start for us in city logistics. But there is still a long road ahead of us—for a start, we have to resolve issues surrounding the availability of trucks with alternative powertrains,” explains Stefan Hohm. “To get new, more sustainable city logistics off the ground, all the parties involved will have to work more closely together. We’re not looking to take a one-size-fits-all approach. Rather, we want to combine a range of solutions, each of them focused on optimizing deliveries, routes, and times.”

About Dachser:

Thanks to some 29,100 employees at 396 locations all over the globe, Dachser generated revenue of EUR 6.12 billion in 2017. That same year, the logistics provider handled a total of 81.7 million shipments weighing 39.8 million metric tons. Country organizations represent Dachser in 44 countries.

Best Journalistic Newcomer Award Supported by TT Club

1218 Peregrine Storrs-Fox, TT Club presenting Seahorse Newcomer of the Year to Joseph Stewart, The Naval Architect

Peregrine Storrs-Fox, TT Club presenting the Seahorse Newcomer of the Year Award to Joseph Stewart, The Naval Architect

London, 10th December, 2018

Leading international transport and logistics insurer, TT Club has been an enthusiastic supporter of the Seahorse Club Journalist Awards for some years. The Awards are specifically for media professionals active in the maritime, air cargo and logistics arena. At the 2018 Awards presentation last week, TT Club again sponsored the category that encourages and celebrates new talent in the press ranks of freight transport. The Newcomer of the Year was announced as Joseph Stewart of The Naval Architect.

TT Club’s Risk Management Director, Peregrine Storrs-Fox presenting the award explained the Club’s thinking behind its support for the Award, “Effective communication through the media is an important priority in all walks of life. In this supply chain sector, TT Club wants to recognise and nurture those who have recently chosen to work in related media.”

The award entries were judged by a panel of international media and marketing communications professionals after editors of media outlets in the sector were asked to nominate journalists with no more than two years’ experience who show out-standing potential, demonstrating a clear understanding of the salient issues facing the modern freight transport industry. Furthermore, the editors were urged to identify candidates producing consistently high quality content, providing an informative read and a balanced view on the subject at hand.

This year the calibre of nominees’ writing was extremely high. The judges commented, “The scoring was very close, with the other short-listed entrants being Kate Jones of Carmar Media and Michael Juliano, who writes for Tradewinds quarterly, TW+. However, Joseph really shone as a clear winner. His article encompassed a very rounded discussion of a complex topic, presented with great understanding and a mature writing style.”

Joseph only joined The Naval Architect as Editorial Assistant last December, previously working on books about Lego for Dorling Kindersley, but has quickly developed a firm understanding of the complex issues that dominate discussion in the maritime industry.

As Storrs-Fox concluded, “We are keen to encourage young, enthusiastic and well trained journalists to thrive in the sector. I’m delighted to say that the standard of entrants for the Newcomer category was outstanding and their level of professionalism and balanced reportage was very impressive.”

“K” Line takes delivery of New LPG Carrier “GENESIS RIVER” for GYXIS CORPORATION

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd., Tokyo, (hereinafter referred to as “K” Line) is proud to announce the delivery of VLGC “GENESIS RIVER” for GYXIS CORPORATION (head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and Representative Director: Mr. Takayuki Doi, hereinafter referred to as ” GYXIS “) at Sakaide Shipyard of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. today.

“GENESIS RIVER” commences her service to GYXIS under a time charter contract concluded in 2015, the year GYXIS was founded. On this November 2, she was given her name “GENESIS RIVER” by GYXIS’ Mr. Doi. This vessel becomes the second LPG carrier in our fleet which is employed by GYXIS, and we are hopeful of her contribution to the ever-growing global seaborne LPG trading through her service to GYXIS.

To meet customer’s requirements and satisfaction, the vessel is designed for improved propulsion performance and lower fuel consumption, and environmentally-friendly equipment such as ballast water management system is installed to protect marine ecosystem from unwanted environmental effect.

“K” Line is committed to continue providing the most reliable and stable service possible to our valued customers with assurance of the highest standard of safety.

Dachser focuses on lithium-ion technology

Kempten, November 20, 2018.181120 Li-Ion Ground conveyors charging at Dachser cross docking hall-kl

By 2022, logistics provider Dachser plans to replace all of its roughly 6,000 ground conveyors in Europe with vehicles powered by energy-saving lithium-ion batteries.

Compared to conventional lead-acid batteries, the lithium-ion variety lasts three times longer and boasts significantly shorter charging times. This increases the flexibility of using vehicles equipped with these batteries, and does away with the need for special rooms set aside for battery charging. The resulting freed-up space in transit terminals can be used for cargo handling. “When you factor in the savings in avoided maintenance and damage costs, since the batteries no longer have to be taken out of the vehicle every day for charging, then having a lithium-ion fleet has already paid for itself today,” explains André Bilz, Team Leader Fleet Management Terminal Equipment at Dachser.

The switch is also good news for environmental sustainability. For one thing, the conventional batteries, which have to be replaced after about 1,200 charging cycles, contain lead, a toxic heavy metal. For another, the lithium-ion batteries conserve energy and thus save some 1,600 kilograms of CO2 per vehicle per year. Multiply that by 6,000 ground conveyors and you get 9.6 million kilograms of CO2 annually.

“Dachser invests continuously in cutting-edge logistics facilities and equipment, which ultimately enhances the quality of its services,” explains Michael Schilling, Dachser’s COO Road Logistics. “This modernization project is an excellent example of how profitability and sustainability can go hand in hand, which in turn produces benefits for our customers.”

By 2022, Dachser wants to convert all its Road Logistics locations in Europe to this new technology. The switch will be made step by step; locations will not operate both technologies together. Lithium-ion technology has already been successfully introduced in the Radeburg and Erlensee (Food Logistics) branches, and will now be followed by construction and expansion of facilities, for example in Freiburg and Munich, the plans for which will include the necessary electrical infrastructure from the outset.

In looking at the many suppliers of ground conveyors, once again Dachser aims to work with the leading manufacturers. And as for battery technology, charging infrastructure, and energy management software, the logistics provider has selected Triathlon to be its preferred supplier.

This switch to lithium-ion technology is by no means the end of the project: “Together with our partners, we will be driving forward the development of ground conveyor technology. Our aim is to increase the vehicles’ usability by making them smaller, more maneuverable, and more lightweight,” Bilz says.

About Dachser:

Thanks to some 29,100 employees at 396 locations all over the globe, Dachser generated revenue of EUR 6.12 billion in 2017. That same year, the logistics provider handled a total of 81.7 million shipments weighing 39.8 million metric tons. Country organizations represent Dachser in 44 countries.
