  • Safe harbouf for Gryphon

The ship had been carrying out survey operations for a subsidiary of France Telecom when the fire started.

  • There's a new ocean shipper cooperative. Worldwide Logistics Associates is made up of members of the National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association. It will be run by David Akers, who managers the Toy Shippers Association. Akers expects around 400 NCBFAA members will join. Several large trade lanes will be targeted with members expected to have freight moving in both directions. Akers expects more shipping associations to be formed as small and midsize shippers adjust to the new deregulated ocean shipping environment.
  • President Clinton's budget for fiscal 2000 includes higher transportation safety and environmental spending as well as more than $1 billion in new user charges. But with a Republican-controlled Congress and the president's political sway questionable over even Democratic lawmakers, something entirely different than his budget recommendations is expected to emerge from the 106th Congress. Truly there is something in the president's budget for everybody. Federal transport spending is intended to improve 4 million miles of roads, 580,000 highway bridges, 180,000 miles of railroad, 5,400 public-use airports, 6,000 mass transit systems, 350 ports and harbors and 25,000 miles of commercially navigable inland waterways.
  • The Arkansas Supreme Court rejected Cardinal Freight Carriers' appeal to overturn a ruling that it had violated that state's trade secrets act when former J.B. Hunt Transport Services employees used their knowledge to secure sales for Cardinal. The state Supreme Court Jan. 28 affirmed a lower court ruling that Cardinal was using trade secrets obtained illegally from Hunt. A second Hunt lawsuit against Cardinal seeking damages is still pending.
  • Ready for another truck vs. rail lobbying rumble? Could happen. Walter B. McCormick Jr., president of the American Trucking Associations, says he is open to start an "outreach" to railroads over the emotional issue of truck size and weight. McCormick says rails are in an "untenable" position of being unable to move freight efficiently themselves while at the same time preventing truckers from more productively moving their freight. The railroads won a freeze on the use of longer-combination vehicles in 1991, but their market share of the overall transportation pie has dropped some 2.6 percent since that time, McCormick said.
  • An expert panel set up by the European Commission is pointing the finger at contracting intermodal carriers as the source of cargo liability when freight is moved across the modes. The evergreen issue of international, intermodal cargo liability is complicated because of the patchwork of regulations designed to serve the needs of unimodal transportation. The EC panel wants a uniform, internationally acceptable code that eliminates the need for legal and evidential inquiries. One cargo expert says that large intermodal operators should not fear such a system because it would remove much of the uncertainty over intermodal damage claims.
  • Amtrak is bucking the railroads' trend of exiting the refrigerated car business. Since entering the temperature-sensitive market about a year ago when it bought eight Reefer-Railers from Wabash National Corp., Amtrak has won over reefer shippers. Now it is about to offer an express four-day cross-country service for perishables with the purchase of eight new 70-ton reefer cars designed to be used on Amtrak's high-speed passenger lanes. It's a direct challenge to long-haul truckers. Sunkist already is using two passenger trains to move citrus products to the East Coast. Sunkist estimates it moves 80 percent of its freight by truck. Amtrak's promise of four-day service is prompting Sunkist to test the new offering.
  • Talks have opened between this country and China to liberalize the 1980 U.S.-China Civil Air Transport Agreement last amended in 1995. It restricts to 27 the number of scheduled weekly flights permitted from each country. Only three U.S. carriers - Federal Express, Northwest and United - can serve the Chinese market right now. United Parcel Service has a big stake in these aviation talks as it hopes to join FedEx in the Chinese market. UPS already has a joint venture with Sinotrans in Beijing that allows it to serve 108 Chinese cities.
  • In a world of change, some people want constancy. Ryder System wants no change in its new diagnostic tool for truck maintenance. Eden Prairie, Minn.-based FieldWorks has loaded its 5000 Series II laptop with software from many equipment manufacturers, plus an interface program that allows Ryder mechanics to choose the right software for repairs. A universal adapter interfaces to all different types of onboard electronics systems, including controls for engines, brakes, transmissions and trailer refrigeration units. This allows Ryder to use the same tool to test its entire fleet.
  • Ottawa and Washington have ignored the St. Lawrence Seaway in favor of other modes to the disadvantage of shipowners on both sides of the border. The St. Lawrence must be restored to viability for economical and environmental reasons, according to Peter Cresswell, president and CEO of Algoma Central Corp.
