  • Freight set to take to the air
    Australia's air freight industry is ready to cash in on the ongoing disruption on Australia's waterfront with the country's biggest international air freight carriers preparing to provide additional air freight capacity.
    Qantas Freight said yesterday it had been 'flooded' with phone calls from sea freight customers inquiring about the cost of chartering freighter aircraft into and out of Australia in the event of further blockages on the nation's docks.
  • Legal appeals to prolong waterfront agony
    The dispute between Patrick and the Maritime Union of Australia is set to drag on for weeks unless the government decides on a dramatic intervention.

  • World media portrays a country in crisis
    The world media is portraying Australia as a country in social and economic crisis as a result of the waterfront dispute.

  • British judge gives Patrick short shrift
    The manner in which the English High Court has dismissed an injunction taken out by Patrick against the International Transport Workers Federation has serious implications for the waterfront dispute.
    Mr Justice Thomas has said the injunction would severely impair the ability of the ITF to lend support to the MUA.
    In dismissing the interim injunction, he took the view that Patrick would not succeed in securing an injunction at a full hearing.

  • United Parcel Service doesn't want one more competitor to take away one more of its packages - especially RPS Inc. or the U.S. Postal Service. So UPS did something neither of those competitors can match: it attached a day-definite guarantee to every commercial ground shipment. The new UPS service comes at no additional charge and beginning May 4 will be an inherent part of every shipment. The move, if it works as planned, will erase the uncertainty that usually accompanies ground shipping.
  • Congressional insiders are no longer speculating whether the $217 billion House highway spending bill will prevail when it goes up against the slightly trimmer $214 billion Senate bill. Rather they're wondering what provisions of Bud Shuster's BESTEA proposal will survive the joint House-Senate conference that begins this week. The criminal indictment of Shuster's former top aide and fund-raiser, transportation lobbyist Ann M. Eppard, is likely to put political pressure on Shuster and give ammunition to those who want to cut billions of dollars in demonstration projects from the bill some critics have dubbed "Heist-tea."
  • The Big Four national unionized LTL carriers, with five years of labor peace assured by ratification of a National Master Freight Agreement that doesn't expire until spring of 2003, are now setting their sights on recapitalizing their operations to better vie with ever-intensifying nonunion competition.
  • United Parcel Service CEO James Kelly and U.S. Postmaster General Marvin Runyon almost went head-to-head, speaking at rival press events on the same day in Washington, D.C. last week. The UPS chief attacked the Postal Service as an "anti-competitive, anti-free-enterprise government bureaucracy" that charges more than is necessary for first-class mail to subsidize its nonmonopoly operations. Runyon defended the USPS. "We do not subsidize one type of product with another product," he said.
  • Despite assurances by Norfolk Southern and CSX Transportation that they continue to work cooperatively toward a smooth division of Conrail, an April 9 filing with the Surface Transportation Board by CONSOL Inc., the nation's largest producer of bituminous coal, raises questions about the ability of the two to deliver their promised problem-free transition on at least part of the Conrail system. CONSOL said in its filing it reluctantly sought first to intervene and then to have conditions imposed only after learning NS and CSXT had been unable to negotiate an agreement governing operations of the former Monongahela Railway in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. CONSOL mines on the Monongahela, generate close to three-quarters of the traffic on the line.
  • The competition is cutting in on the Trans-Atlantic Conference Agreement's business, according to the Federal Maritime Commission. And there's a lot more business to slice up. In its annual report for fiscal 1997, the FMC noted that TACA's eastbound market share fell another four percentage points to 64 percent, while westbound market share fell two percentage points to 66 percent. One of the biggest reasons for the decline, according to the FMC, is the entry of fresh blood such as China Ocean Shipping Co., Yangming Marine Transport and Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha into the trade lane.
  • Levi Strauss & Co. slashed its operations in the People's Republic of China in 1993 when it couldn't find enough suppliers that could meet its criteria for fair treatment of workers. But now, five years later, it again is stepping up its manufacturing in that country. Levi Strauss insists the decision was based on matters of logistics, not labor. To achieve the kind of fast turnaround needed to compete, it has been the company's policy to locate manufacturing operations in or near the same region where it sells the product.
  • There's a new player in the supply-chain software business - transportation giant CSX Corp. CSX and Canadian software developer Sanga International Inc. have joined forces to produce and market Java-based logistics software for CSX, as well as government agencies and shippers. A joint venture company managed by Sanga will blend the existing software products of both companies to create web-enabled supply-chain management software.
  • The big question for those in the Latin American trade lane this week is fala portugues? Do you speak Portuguese? That's the official language, of course, in Brazil, which is the official hot market for U.S. goods in South America. And this is the week of the South American Intermodal Expo - second only to Atlanta among intermodal shows in terms of participation, according to those who say they keep track of such things.
