  • Box Traffic on Japan/China Route Keeps Growing
    Container traffic between Japan and China in July 1999 rose 4.8% over a year earlier to 91,617 TEUs, achieving a seventh consecutive month of increase.
    Containerized exports from Japan marked a two-digit year-on-year increase of 10.8% with 27,920 TEUs, while a growth rate of imports from China remained at 2.4% with 63,697 TEUs.
    Accumulated total for the first seven months amounted to 657,960 TEUs, up 19.2% from the corresponding period of last year.
  • COSCO Pacific Reports Flat Mid-Year Revenue, Profit
    Hong Kong-based COSCO Pacific Ltd., the container leasing and terminal operating unit of the China Ocean Shipping (Group) Company (COSCO), reported flat net profits and revenues for the first six months of this year.
    Profit slightly rose 0.1% to $67 million, while revenue dipped only 0.6% to $108 million. Its utilization rate of the leased container fleet was 96%, well above the industry average of about 80%.
    Throughput at the container terminals operated or partially owned by COSCO Pacific increased 27% during the period to 2.68 million TEUs. While container volumes handled at the Yantian terminal in South China grew remarkably, up 64% from a year before, those at the COSCO-HIT terminal in Hong Kong declined 1% on a year-on-year basis.
  • Yusen Air Announces Upward Revision on Business Results
    Yusen Air & Sea Service Friday announced an upward revision on its projected mid-term and full year business performance for fiscal 1999 ending March 31, 2000.
    On the mid-term basis, revenue is expected to amount to 25 billion yen from the previous projection of 24 billion revealed in May, ordinary income to 940 million, and net profit to 495 million from 270 million.
    For full fiscal 1999, revenue was adjusted to go up to 51 billion from originally projected 50 billion, ordinary income to 1,940 million from 1,450 million and net income to 1,020 million from 750 million.
    The Asian economies have been recovering faster than expected with a surge of computer- and semiconductor-related shipments from Japan and cost-saving efforts and effective space-purchasing also contributed to improved results, the company said.

    L'alliance TEAM existe-t-elle encore? "Oui", dit-on à la SNCB: "Avec un chiffre d'affaires de 1,63 mia. d'EUR, ABX Logistics est la figure de proue de l'Alliance TEAM et compte le rester". "Non", dit Alain Bréau, PDG de Mory Team et président en exercice du steering comittee (SC) de TEAM: "Je dois prononcer l'exclusion de la SNCB/ABX car elle a modifié ses alliances hors SC, en outre en contradiction avec le principe de base de TEAM, qui est de n'avoir qu'un partenaire par pays". Selon lui, il faudra un an pour que soit démêlé l'écheveau des partenariats et des contrats qui sont aujourd'hui parfois devenus contradictoires.
