  • Toll accuses MUA
    THE Maritime Union of Australia was yesterday accused of taking industrial action to prevent the port of Newcastle becoming more competitive.
    Toll Logistics said it was considering its response to alleged industrial action by the MUA that has stopped the unloading of timber from the first vessel to berth at the Eastern Basin wharf since it and R&H Transport won the right to develop a new multi-modal distribution centre.
    The Eastern Basin Distribution Centre and Patrick have an agreement to provide more flexible arrangements for customers of the port.
    Under the agreement, Patrick is the preferred stevedore for the centre, although customers with existing stevedoring contracts can use the Eastern Basin berths with the stevedore of their choice.

    The substantial changes come ahead of the planned launch of MSC's first trans-Pacific service in May, reportedly employing three new and three chartered ships on an Asia-West Coast North America route. The company will be aggressively marketing the new US service in Australia, relaying local cargo over Yokohama on the Asian trade vessels.
  • Freight awaits Oneworld attention
    The simple blue logo of the oneworld airline alliance began appearing on Qantas planes and at Australian airports this week, but it appears that shippers will have to wait some time for the benefits to flow through to the cargo business.
    Qantas's tie-up with British Airways, American Airlines, Canadian Airlines and Cathay Pacific -- which brings together a combined annual total cargo volume of 2.6 million tonnes -- was announced in September but was only implemented this week.
    The chief focus of oneworld appears to be initially passenger traffic.
    Qantas did not comment yesterday, but has previously said it would not specifically apply the oneworld alliance to cargo, saying only that the airlines involved are working on a number of joint services.
  • Inspections await Temburong
    The livestock carrier, Temburong, was en route to Batam near Singapore yesterday where she is expected to arrive on Sunday to undergo an inspection by AMSA and Germanischer Lloyd surveyors designed to pinpoint the cause of the power failure suffered by the vessel on 27 January which resulted in around 800 cattle apparently suffocating.

    "This schedule and routing is, however, subject to change," the spokesman said.
  • Eden up, Yamba down

    A feasibility study for an armaments facility is also expected to be completed.
    "The ports of Eden and Yamba are relatively small, handling just 0.7 per cent of total sea trade through New South Wales ports," the report said.

  • Atlantic Marine Wins Platform Supply Vessel Contract
    Astromar'tima Navega''o S.A., a Brazilian shipping company that owns and operates a fleet of offshore supply vessels, was approved by the U.S. Maritime Administration (MarAd), for the construction of two Platform Supply Vessels at Atlantic Marine Inc., Jacksonville, Fla. This is the first Latin American transaction ever closed under the MarAd's Title XI Guarantee Program and was approved for Astromar'tima's whole owned Bahamian based subsidiary, Astro Offshore Corporation, which will own the vessels to be operated offshore Brazil by the parent company.
    The vessels (234'x54'x20'), a design by Peter S. Hatfield Inc., from Vancouver (Canada), have specifications to attend dynamic positioned drill ships, rigs and FPSO's, in very deep waters and tough weather conditions.
    The placement of the bonds for the construction of the first vessel was successfully completed through Salomon Smith Barney Inc., a Citigroup company on Dec. 7th, bearing interest of 6.0% p.a. and a 21 years term (one year of grace period). Astromar'tima is actively pursuing a contract for the second vessel, before deciding to start construction."
  • AAPA: Administration's Budget Calls For $1 Billion In New Maritime
    The Administration's budget request announced on February 1 for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Civil Works program calls for $1 billion in new taxes on the maritime industry through its proposed Harbor Services Fund (HSF). The fund proposes to replace the Harbor Maintenance Tax, which the U.S. Supreme Court declared unconstitutional in March 1998.
  • "AAPA and a host of other
    organizations are strongly opposed to this new tax," said American Association of Port Authorities President Kurt J. Nagle. "It is a hastily crafted solution to a complex problem that took years to resolve. The HSF proposes to raise nearly twice what is needed for maintenance dredging and, for the first time in our nation's history, the Federal Government is suggesting that it completely abdicate its financial responsibility for navigation channel maintenance."
  • Norwegian Government Looks To Raise Shipbuilding Subsidies
    The Norwegian government reportedly seeks to raise subsidies for building new ships to nine percent of the cost from seven percent for vessels priced in excess of $11.4 million.

  • Sea Containers Acquires Express Navigation, Inc.
    Ferry Operator Makes First Foray Into U.S. Markets; New Boats, Routes Promised

    Sea Containers Ltd. acquired Express Navigation, Inc. from Holyman Ltd. for $5 million. Express Navigation provides services with three passenger ferries between Wall Street's Pier 11 on Manhattan's East Side to Highlands and Atlantic Highlands in New Jersey and Pier 4 in Brooklyn. The three ferries are owned by subsidiaries of Hydrolines, Inc. a Delaware company which has time chartered them to Express Navigation on long term charters.
    The profitable services of Express Navigation have been capacity constrained and the company's main terminal in Highlands, N.J. needs to be expanded to allow for greater car parking. Holyman Ltd. decided to exit the business rather than make additional capital investment so it agreed to sell Express Navigation to Sea Containers. Sea Containers and Holyman own the successful Hoverspeed Holyman fast ferry service which operates between Dover, England and Ostend, Belgium.
    Mr. James B. Sherwood, President of Sea Containers Ltd., said that Express Navigation was the company's first passenger transport investment in the U.S. and will form a part of a group of U.S. based ferry services which the company would seek to acquire or initiate in the coming years. More, larger and faster vessels will be introduced on Express Navigation's routes as soon as they can be obtained.
  • Marine Management Systems Sold
    Visma has signed an agreement through its subsidiary SpecTec, Inc. to acquire the assets of Marine Management Systems, Inc.(MMS).

  • SpecTec Connecticut, a subsidiary of SpecTec, Inc., signed an agreement with MMS to buy key assets, including intellectual property rights and necessary assets to continue the operation.

MMS's Fleet Manager is a very well seasoned product, with a large number of satisfied users. SpecTec Connecticut, through its former MMS employees, will continue to provide support and consulting.
