  • Shippers steam as sailing slows: survey
    IN THE cheering for slow steaming, what with savings on fuel for the liners and the lower emissions for the planet, it appears that the shippers' howls of protests might have been drowned out.
  • Record profit for mines as shipping slumps on glut
    The largest glut of ships in history means the cheapest freight rates relative to iron ore prices in at least a decade, helping Rio Tinto Group and BHP Billiton Ltd to generate record profit.

  • Shipping sector charts course to reduce global warming
    LAST week, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) took a major step forward in its response to the perceived need to cut greenhouse gas, and specifically carbon dioxide (CO2), emissions from ships. In doing so, it has probably managed to keep control of the implementation of cuts that will eventually be demanded by whatever results from the UN negotiations on tackling global warming which continue in Durban at the end of this year.
