Ever Given Agreement Reached

By
June 24, 2021

The Ever Given was successfully refloated within the Suez Canal on March 29 2021. Unfortunately, until now, The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) had the Ever Given formally under arrest, seeking compensation of US$916 million in damages.

It now appears that an agreement has been reached that will allow the Ever Given to continue its journey and as a result, shippers with cargo on board could soon see their shipments moving again.

According to the representatives of the vessel, owner Shoei Kisen Kaisha and its insurers, have agreed to a settlement to free the vessel, currently anchored in the Bitter Lakes region of the canal while the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) continues to demand compensation for the six-day blockage of its waterway.

According to the vessel’s insurer, the UK P&I Club, the parties have agreed a settlement in principle, with formal agreement on compensation due to the SCA now nearing completion.

It added: “Together with the owner and the ship’s other insurers, we are now working with the SCA to finalize a signed settlement agreement as soon as possible. Once the formalities have been dealt with, arrangements for the release of the vessel will be made.”

The UK P&I Club indicated at the beginning of the week that it thought a settlement was near when it revealed it had made a new offer over the weekend – which led to an adjournment of a court in Egypt which was due to rule on the arrest – which it believed “satisfies all the requirements of the SCA”.

JAS organizza treno blocco dalla Cina all’Italia

June 14, 2021

In seguito al nuovo focolaio COVID-19 divampato nell’area di YANTIAN causandone la chiusura, molte navi stanno omettendo o gravemente ritardando le operazioni in questo porto, provocando a cascata un grave congestionamento su tutti gli approdi del Sud Cina (Shekou, Chiwan ecc…).

JAS Italia in collaborazione con Mercitalia Rail – Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, procederà a breve con un primo TRENO BLOCCO in partenza dalla CINA con arrivo in ITALIA, dedicato INTERAMENTE a JAS e ai nostri spettabili CLIENTI.

La prima partenza programmata a inizio luglio ha già catturato l’attenzione di molti importatori, che hanno provveduto a prenotare lo spazio per le proprie merci. Sono previste diverse altre partenze e siamo certi che questo servizio costituisca una valida alternativa al tradizionale trasporto marittimo, che attualmente presenta gravi criticità negli imbarchi, nel reperimento degli equipment e nei transit time che progressivamente deteriorano.

Il servizio TRENO BLOCCO ha almeno tre indiscutibili vantaggi:

  • garanzia di equipment
  • transit time più veloce rispetto agli attuali trasporti marittimi
  • basso impatto ambientale e ridotte emissioni di CO2.

Con i noli marittimi alle stelle e le generali difficoltà d’imbarco, il servizio treno è sicuramente competitivo. Come accennato, le partenze previste sono svariate e provvederemo ad aggiornare l’operatività in sintonia con quanto avverrà nel mercato nel prossimo periodo.

Attualmente i porti di partenza sono Shanghai, Ningbo, Qingdao e Shenzhen, ma stiamo già valutando di ampliare l’offerta includendo altre origini.

I container arriveranno direttamente al terminal di Milano e avremo a nostra disposizione 41 container treno blocco.

Per maggiori dettagli e informazioni non esitate a contattare il Vs. referente commerciale, oppure scrivete a IT-Tradelane@jas.com e sarete prontamente contattati.

USA TSA Changes to Air Cargo Screening Mandate

Major changes to the process of screening air cargo set to increase shipping costs

By
JAS Staff
June 8, 2021

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has mandated that, by June 30th, 100% of international all-cargo aircraft flights receive the same level of security screening and scrutiny that cargo shipments on passenger fights undergo now. This means international air cargo moving with charters/freighters, including cargo moving in with JAS Flight Operations (Blue World Atlantic) from the USA, will be subject to mandatory security screening by June 30th, 2021.

Challenges caused by the new mandate:

  • Cargo arriving at the airport is often already palletized. This can make it impossible to screen completely without breaking up the pallet.
  • Some cargo is too large for the x-ray screening systems most common at airports.
  • Some cargo requires specific methods and/or multiple screening methods that may not be available at the airport.
  • There is only a brief window of time when loading aircraft for departure and often too much cargo to screen efficiently.
  • ADDITIONAL COSTS

Is JAS prepared?

  • JAS has put in place the necessary procedures to implement the new requirement by June 30th.

________________________________________________________

Ever Given Seized

By
April 15, 2021
Ever Given re-floated in Suez Canal

The Ever Given was successfully re-floated within the Suez Canal at 15:04 local time on March 29th.

Yesterday it was revealed that the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) formally arrested the Ever Given pending settlement of around $916 million. An Egyptian judge granted permission for the SCA to seize the vessel after it lodged the compensation claim against its Japanese vessel owner, Shoe Kisen.

The SCA says it intends to maintain the vessel’s arrest until the claim is paid, a position that has caused fury among the ship’s insurers and ship managers, and led charterer Evergreen to investigate whether it could use a court order to treat vessel and cargo separately.

The SCA claim includes $300m for salvage and $300m for “loss of reputation”, which appears set to be rejected by the vessel’s insurer, the UK P&I Club, which revealed it had already made a compensation offer to the SCA this week.  

Release from the UK P&I Club:

“Despite the magnitude of the claim, which was largely unsupported, the owners and their insurers have been negotiating in good faith with the SCA.
“On 12 April, a carefully considered and generous offer was made to the SCA to settle the claim. We are disappointed by the SCA’s subsequent decision to arrest the vessel today. We are also disappointed at comments by the SCA that the ship will be held in Egypt until compensation is paid, and that its crew will be unable to leave the vessel during this time. The SCA has not provided a detailed justification for this extraordinarily large claim.
“The grounding resulted in no pollution and no reported injuries. The vessel was re-floated after six days and the Suez Canal promptly resumed its commercial operations.
“The claim presented by the SCA also does not include the professional salvor’s claim for salvage services, which owners and hull underwriters expect to receive separately. The P&I aspects of the claim are relatively modest, with the exception of a claim for loss of reputation, which is disputed.”

Ian Beveridge, CEO of the vessel’s manager, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM), also voiced his concern over the arrest.

“The SCA’s decision to arrest the vessel is extremely disappointing. From the outset, BSM and the crew on board have cooperated fully with all authorities, including the SCA and their respective investigations into the grounding.

“This included granting access to the voyage data recorder and other materials and data requested by the SCA,” Mr Beveridge added.

Evergreen said it had begun to look at other ways to free cargo trapped on board, adding: “In order to lift the arrest order as soon as possible, Evergreen is urging all concerned parties to facilitate a settlement agreement to be reached.

“Meanwhile, Evergreen is investigating the scope of such a court order and studying the possibility of the vessel and the cargo on board being treated separately,” it said.

BMS said the Ever Given’s classification society, the American Bureau of Shipping, had completed its inspection following the incident and it had “been declared suitable for onward passage to Port Said, to be assessed again before departing for Rotterdam”.
