25 Mind Blowing Facts About The Shipping Industry
Tweet this video! - http://clicktotweet.com/aPe_I For an industry that basically runs the world economy most people know very little about the enormous complex that touches almost every single thing you use. From the chair you are sitting on to the yogurt you're eating to the steering wheel in you car, all those things were made possible thanks to an industry that has been operating since man learned to float. These are 25 mind blowing facts about the shipping industry. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-mind-blowing-facts-shipping-industry/ Here's a preview: Around two-thirds of ship crews in the world have no means of communication while they are on the open sea. Only about 1 in 10 will have freely available Internet. In 2010, Somali pirates were holding 544 seafarers hostage. Every year, more than 2,000 sailors die at sea, and an incredible two ships are lost every day. In 2012, the attack rates on seafarers was higher than the number of violent crimes in South Africa, the highest-crime nation on Earth. A container ship travels the equivalent of three-quarters of the way to the moon and back in one year during its regular travel across the oceans. The largest ships can cost over 200 million dollars to build. Females constitute only about 2% of seafarers. People from the Philippines make up more than a third of all crews worldwide, with nearly a quarter million at sea. The largest ships can store 745 million bananas in nearly 15,000 containers. That's about one for every person in Europe and North America. Shipping is one of the oldest industries in the world. Today, however, it plays as important a role as ever. There are approximately 55,000 merchant ships carrying cargo around the world. Around 1.5 million seafarers are employed by the global shipping industry In 2009, the 15 biggest ships in the world gave off the same amount of greenhouse gas as 760 million cars, or about two cars for every American. Compared to trucks and planes however, shipping is still the greenest form of transport, relatively speaking. Worldwide, only around 2% to 10% of containers are actually inspected. U.S. ports normally inspect roughly 5% of the 17 million containers arriving at the border every year. Germany, Japan, and Greece are the three countries with the biggest fleets based on total dead weight tonnage controlled by parent companies located in these countries. Having made the previous two points, it's worth mentioning that if you added shipping to the list of the world's most polluting countries, it would come in sixth place. Shipping companies are extremely secretive. For example, the official Greek shipowners' association won't even reveal how many members it has. As of this moment there are roughly 20 million containers crossing the world. A container ship engine has about 1,000 times more power than a family car. To give you an example of how much it costs to ship something, a bicycle would be roughly 10 dollars while a soda can would be less than a penny. Economically speaking, the shipping industry is enormous. In the United Kingdom, it accounts for more of the GDP than restaurants, takeaway food, and civil engineering combined. Shipping is so big in fact that it constitutes roughly 90 percent of the world's trade. If you were to line up the containers on just one ship they would easily stretch nearly halfway around the planet. If you stacked them up, and they would reach to nearly 7,500 Eiffel Towers and if you unloaded their cargo onto trucks the traffic would stretch for 60 miles. Shipping is one of the first industries to adopt widely implemented international safety standards. In 2011 the 360 commercial ports in the United States received goods from abroad worth $1.73 trillion. The U.S. relies on shipping to bring in two-thirds of its oil supply. In the global fleet there are six types of ships: General cargo ships, bulk carriers, fishing vessels, container ships, passenger ships, and tankers. Shipping is cheap. It's so cheap in fact, that rather than fillet its own fish, Scotland can send its cod 10,000 miles across the ocean to China to be filleted, and then sent back for less than the price of doing it themselves.

Global Crisis Hits Shipping Industry - Documentary
Daily Voice News- Economic Collapse http://dailyvoicenews.com Global Crisis Hits Shipping Industry Freight and charter rates have plunged, jobs are being cut, and many ships are being parked for months at a time Shipping benefits from globalization more than almost any other sector. But this has also made it more vulnerable to the global economic crisis. Freight and charter rates have plunged, jobs at shipping companies are being cut and many ships are being parked for months at a time. The anxiety began in the summer, when the long lines disappeared: the kilometer-long lines of trucks waiting to get into the container terminals outside Los Angeles, one of the most critical bottlenecks of globalization in recent years, or the long queues container ships jostling for spots at the entrance to Hong Kong harbor, often waiting for days for a berth. Instead, what is backed up today is the once hotly sought-after merchandise, as electronic goods and textiles pile up in Chinese factories, now that consumption has declined, first among Americans and now in Europe. Iron ore and other minerals are piling up in South American mines, because the Chinese no longer need as much of the natural resources to produce goods. Many ships are now sailing half-empty, if they are sailing at all. In fact, shipping companies are pulling more and more ships out of circulation, due to a lack of demand, and placing them at anchor indefinitely. Experts estimate that one-fourth of all ships used to transport raw materials in the Pacific are now idle. Until recently, shipping was plainly globalization's booming industry, its hammering pulse, pumping more and more goods around the world at an ever-increasing pace. But the financial crisis has brought this activity to an unexpected halt. Although the pulse is still beating, it is no longer the fast and powerful pulse of a sprinter, instead it resembles that of a coma patient. For months, prices have been falling throughout the industry. In the spring, large commercial shipping companies like Maersk and Hapag-Lloyd were still charging about $2,000 (€1,600) to ship a container from Asia to Europe. Today, some companies collect only $500 (€400) for the same service. In the spring, it cost $30,000 (€24,000) a day to charter a ship containing 2,500 standard containers (TEU). Today, that price has dropped to less than $12,000 (€9,600). Bulk commodity freighters in the Panamax class commanded a daily charter fee of $64,000 (€52,000) in June. Today they can be had for less than $11,000 (€8,800). Shipping managers and ship owners, hoping to allay fears, argue that phases of substantial booms followed by sharp declines are typical for the industry. Nevertheless, the talk behind the scenes revolves around the concept of a "perfect storm," in which everything that can go wrong does go wrong, culminating in the worst possible disaster. "The negative conditions we are seeing in the market place are unprecedented in our industry's history," says Ron Widdows, the CEO of NOL, a shipping company. Bertram Rickmers, a German ship owner, concludes matter-of-factly: "The party is over." Mistrust and Nervousness Are Rampant

Shipping in Crisis!
Do you remember listening to the shipping forecast on the radio? It was like a foreign language. Today, the language of the global shipping industry is crystal clear – things are grim with a capital G… As you commute to work in the train or the car you probably don’t give much thought to shipping containers. Those big rectangular boxes that you see stacked up in ports and on the deck of massive cargo ships have an important story to tell. They’re the modern day Silk Road. The main means by which global trade and commerce gets delivered. And the story they are telling us today is not pretty. Almost everyone that you’ll hear spouting off about the state of the world’s economy has some sort of agenda. Usually that involves talking up a situation to make you believe that everything’s hunky dory and under control. But there are some raw statistics that we can use to cut through all the hot air and get to some facts that tell us the real story. One such is shipping rates. What people are paying to hire container ships to deliver their goods around the world. Before the financial crisis oil tankers were fetching a hundred thousand dollars a day. Now, they regard ten thousand collars as a good pay day. There are specialist brokers in places like Singapore that negotiate these rates between producers and fleet owners. And their bonuses have not been spectacular for much of the last decade. As with all commodities, the good times in the early part of this millennium led fleet owners to lay down more and more new container ships. Everyone thinks the growth will keep coming forever and invests accordingly. So, just as the financial crisis started to impact world trade eight years ago, scores of new ships came online. The inevitable result? A crash in hire rates and lots of ships moored idle in places like Singapore and Gibraltar. China’s move to a services led economy has exacerbated the problem, while the anaemic growth in Europe is nowhere near enough to take up the slack. The impact on margins can be seen from sector leader Maersk. Its recent numbers showed a fifteen per cent drop in revenue but a massive sixty one per cent decline in profits. The inevitable result? Four thousand job losses from its twenty three thousand strong onshore workforce. Things are no better in the non-container based shipping world. The Baltic Dry index, a benchmark that tracks the cost of shipping bulk raw materials such as coal, steel and iron ore, has tumbled to a near thirty year low. Volatility in the currency markets also impacts shipping, with the Euro falling against the Chinese Yuan during twenty fifteen making imports more expensive. That may reverse this year as the Chinese authorities finally start to allow some devaluation of their currency, but some serious damage has been done since the financial crisis. Another culprit is the oil price crash, heavily impacting countries like Russia that depends on oil exports for much of its income. The German port of Hamburg, famous for its Reeperbahn where the Beatles once had a residency, saw its trade with Russia crash thirty six per cent last year as Russians cut back on imports of German cars and heavy machinery. It’s hard to avoid the conclusion that global trade really is slowing down when you look at any metrics connected with the shipping industry. It’s global. It has no central banks or politicians controlling its data. And it’s in crisis. If you believe what the politicians are saying about everything being under control and nicely on course, be very careful out there!

Port Congestion: Supply Chains, Stakeholders, and Shipping Industry Trends
METRANS Industry Outlook Event: “Port Congestion: Supply Chains, Stakeholders, and Shipping Industry Trends” A Lecture by Patrick Burgoyne, President and CEO of NYK Ports LLC, the holding company of Yusen Terminals (YTI) and Ceres Terminals (CERES). Abstract: Congestion is occurring at ports around the US, with some of the worst problems in Southern California. Some causes seem clear – the continuing economic recovery that has generated more trade demand, a late holiday traffic surge, and the challenges of processing ever larger ships – but is there more to the story? What about recent shifts in chassis ownership, labor shortages, or rail capacity? Do longer term changes in trade patterns or the shipping industry play a role? Will this year’s congestion affect competitiveness among North American ports? This presentation examines all the factors associated with congestion at the ports, discusses possible strategies for addressing them, and concludes with a forecast of what we can expect in the future, both locally and across the continent.

Rough seas for global shipping | The Economist
When the shipping firm Hanjin went bust in September, $14bn worth of goods were stranded at sea. Discover how the shipping industry has faced strong headwinds since the financial crisis of 2008. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 The global shipping industry has been weathering rough seas for years. It is responsible for 90% of the world's traded goods but a price war over freight rates has hit the industry hard. The industry has suffered from an over supply of ships and stuttering commodity prices, sending a container from Shanghai to Europe costs half what it did two years ago. In late 2016, one of the world's biggest shipping companies, Hanjin, went bust. 66 ships loaded with $14.5 billion of goods, were left stranded at sea. One of the biggest costs is from hauling empty containers. In a bid to stay afloat shippers have begun to pool resources. In 2015 Maersk and MSC launched 2M, a partnership to share space on their vessels. Others might consider following suit. Of the 12 biggest companies that have published results for the last quarter, 11 announced huge losses. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films every day of the working week.

Narottam Morarjee Institute of Shipping (NMIS) Milestone for Commercial Shipping Management Download Our Hand-out: https://goo.gl/vDGN1f 1. Narottam Morarjee Institute of Shipping (NMIS), Mumbai was established in 1969 under the joint auspices of Govt. of India and Indian Shipping industry with the sole objective of capacity building in the commercial aspects of shipping. It is an autonomous body, registered as a non-profit trust. 2. The management of the institute is vested with the “Shipping and Related Logistics Industry”. Governing Council also has representatives of Director General of Shipping and National Shipping Board. The course was duly recognized in 1983 by the then Ministry of Education (Now known as HRD ministry). 3. NMIS offers two years Post Graduate Diploma in Shipping Management (PGDSM) for graduates in any discipline. Institute also offers a similar two years Fellow Ship program for non-graduates, who are having HSC certificate with two years shipping related experience. The only name of the certificate is different but study material, classes, exams & market recognition for both courses are identical. Training period as Engine / Deck Cadet or Rating Trainee ashore or on the ship is counted in full, as shipping experience for Fellow Ship Program. 4. Contents of the course are specially designed & will be of great interest to those who wish to take up commercial shipping as a career. The course is also extremely useful to those who are already working in shipping or related logistics sector. Their experience is invariably confined to a specific segment of shipping. For seafarers, it is restricted to safety, security and environment protection. To grow fast in your career, there is a compelling need for you to have a comprehensive understanding of this industry, which our course offers. 5. The course also gives a great opportunity to seafarers to showcase their enhanced performance in commercial aspects on ships & empowers them to take on the challenge of attractive shore jobs.
