News / Record 2017 for air freight warms up the market for a happy new year

first_img The quiet holiday period saw airlines clear up freight backlogs that had built up over an unusually busy end to the year – and now the air freight market is starting to warm up again, say forwarders.However, there were reports of cancelled scheduled operations over the holiday, which is likely to have led to rates staying firm, particularly to and from the US.Web-quotation platform Freightos cited cancellations between December 22 and December 31, to Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas. It said “most US airlines” cancelled seven to 10 flights, while AirBridgeCargo and China Southern also cut services.“Given that cargo space on this route is still quite tight, these cancellations are pushing rates back up,” Freightos said at the end of December. By Alex Lennane 03/01/2018 It added that poor weather in Europe had also contributed to higher rates, which could remain at reasonably strong levels up to Chinese new year, which falls on February 16.2017 looks set to be a record year for air freight, giving carriers some confidence going into 2018. WorldACD reported that November’s figures set new record volumes, breaking October’s peak by 1.3%. Year-on-year, November volumes rose 7.8%, while revenues were up 26%.In the larger markets, Asia Pacific to North America saw volume rises of 11.5%, Europe to Middle East & South Asia (MESA) grew 11.3%, while the other direction rose 21.1%. Of the smaller markets, WorldACD saw 12.2% growth from Central and South America to Europe; North America to MESA went up 19.5%, and MESA to Africa grew 20.1%Yield increases for the third consecutive month hit double digits, with Europe seeing the highest increases. From Europe, year-on-year yields rose nearly 19% in euros – this broke down into a jump of 28% to North America and 25% to Central and South America.WorldACD has published its air cargo market data for November here.last_img read more

News / China-Vietnam sourcing shift enters phase two, bringing more box congestion

first_img The manufacturing shift from China to Vietnam is moving up a gear, putting pressure on the country’s container supply chains.With 2.4% GDP growth forecast by the IMF, Vietnam is on track to become one of the fastest growing economies in the world in 2020, as many others fall into lockdown-induced recessions.For example, Singapore and Malaysia look set to suffer deep economic slumps, which would see Vietnam overtake the pair to become the fourth largest Asean economy.Manufacturing continues to drive the country’s rise, with exports up 11% in the third quarter to $80bn.And, according to Simon Vandekerckove, MD at Geodis Vietnam, the sourcing shift from China is entering a new phase.“We definitely have a lot of demand,” he told The Loadstar.“It’s not just for new sourcing, but for setting up global hubs that were originally in China – the first phase was to move orders from China to existing manufacturing facilities in Vietnam, but the feedback we have now from local OEMs, is that their existing facilities are overbooked.”Local Vietnamese media is awash with reports of major players such as Samsung and Apple moving larger chunks of their Chinese assembly lines into the country, including higher value goods such as laptop computers, and not just smartphones.Being next-door to China, Mr Vandekerckove said Vietnam was the “obvious choice” for companies to relocate their sourcing, as it allows them to keep some of their existing setup, whilst also benefitting from an “extremely promising” batch of FTAs – particularly the deal with the EU which kicked-off in August.“However, we see high expectations about what overseas clients want to do in Vietnam, which doesn’t necessary have the legal nor logistics infrastructure to enable it,” he cautioned.“Vietnam needs a lot of investment into growing new production capacity and infrastructure to cope with the increased demand, and will likely be part of a mix of outsourced locations with other Asean countries like Thailand and Indonesia, as customers want to mitigate the financial exposure linked to sourcing from only one location.”In the meantime, the global capacity crunch and equipment shortage is putting pressure on Ho Chi Minh City’s Cat Lai port, Vietnam’s major container gateway.The inner-city river terminal is notorious for congestion, but current market conditions have exacerbated waiting times, according to one local Vietnamese forwarder, who told The Loadstar export container yard space was at “120% capacity” and vessels were waiting two-to-three days for a berth.He added: “The outbound volumes of all shipping lines at Cat Lai are sharply increased, but due to lack of space, around 10%-20% of volumes per call has to be rolled to the next vessel.”The fast-growing deepwater port at Cai Mep-Thi Vai is lying in wait 50km away, however. The APM Terminals-operated Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT) saw the 20,000 teu Margrethe Maersk call in October (pictured above), one of the 2M’s direct transpacific services.The facility has had ultra-large container ships call in the past – temporarily – but current demand trends could now see the vessel-upsizing here to stay. For example, CMA CGM is due to open Cai Mep’s newest terminal next year, partnering with local player Gemadept.Nevertheless, Mr Vandekerckove confirmed space and equipment shortages, along with sharp rate increases, were still a big challenge at the moment.“Under freight all kind (FAK) and spot requests, it currently take two-to-three weeks to secure the equipment and space from the time of booking ex-Vietnam,” he explained, noting rates had increased as much as 140% to the US west coast, 70% to the Mediterranean and 15% to Northern Europe.Geodis offers a priority loading service for customers in a hurry, which can cut the wait down to a week from the time of booking.And Mr Vandekerckove said air freight wasn’t an option in most circumstances, but road freight has provided a flexible alternative for some clients.

Parents Urged to Have Children Participate in National Orientation Programme

first_imgAdvertisements Parents Urged to Have Children Participate in National Orientation Programme UncategorizedAugust 25, 2008 RelatedParents Urged to Have Children Participate in National Orientation Programme RelatedParents Urged to Have Children Participate in National Orientation Programmecenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Senior Officer in the Student Assessment Unit of the Ministry of Education, Sharon Neil, is encouraging all parents to have their children registered in a primary level school before August 25, so that they can be in the national orientation programme.“The Ministry of Education is encouraging all parents to have their children registered in a primary level school before August 25. We want all children to come to school during that week to participate in the national orientation programme”, she emphasised during an interview with the JIS News, on Thursday (Aug. 21).The national orientation programme will include the Grade One Individual Learning Profile assessment and a number of other activities and information to help students adjust to their new surroundings.“We have planned, along with the teachers and the regional officers, an exciting programme for them. It is designed to give the teachers information about the students, which will be shared with the parents at a later date and the children will benefit by learning, before the beginning of school, important information about their school, that will help them in their transition, and the degree to which they feel comfortable in their new environment,” Mrs. Neil explained.According to the Senior Officer in the Student Assessment Unit, the results will inform the teachers’ plans.“What we expect will happen is that the information will be used by the teachers to plan, and then the teachers, parents, and the Ministry of Education, will be able to determine what progress the child has been making, based on those skills that he/she was identified as having at the beginning of Grade One,” she elaborated.“The impact, later on, will happen because the teachers are guiding the learning process based on the needs identified at Grade One and therefore, we expect that this will help the teacher to ensure that, as the child moves through the school system, that his performance will be in keeping with, or an improvement on what he came in with at Grade One,” Mrs. Neil outlined.She also reiterated that all Grade One students are expected to take the assessment, and that provisions are made for absent students to complete it.“All Grade One students are expected to take the test, and we have made provisions for all of them to do it. We have included the private or independent schools. We appreciate that there may be some students who may be absent, but we have advised teachers on how to deal with this. They can administer the test when the child comes to school because it is important for them to have that information”, she noted.The Grade One Individual Learning Profile, is expected to commence each day at about 9:00 am and continue until 12 noon.“We expect that schools will make arrangements, taking into consideration their own unique circumstances. But what we are recommending to schools is that the students come in and do the test over the period, at about 9:00 or 9:30 in the mornings to about 12:30 in the afternoons. But we wouldn’t expect that children would be in a testing situation for all of that time,” Mrs. Neil stated.She noted that the other activities that form part of the orientation programme, will include “getting to know your school, getting to know your teacher, learning about each other, learning where their classroom is, learning where important features of the school are located, and learning about safety rules”.

Fathers Urged to Play More Actvie Role in PTAs

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Assistant Chief Education Officer, in the Guidance and Counselling Unit of the Ministry of Education, Mary Nichols, is urging mothers to encourage fathers to join the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) and be more active in their children’s lives.“I want to say to the fathers that your child needs you now even more than the mothers because we carried them. and despite what is happening between you and the child’s mother, you need to put yourself forward because it is a blessing in disguise when you really go forward to be a part of your child’s life especially at the PTA and school,” she emphasised during a recent interview with JIS News.“It’s a pleasure for a child, children have spoken to me and its a pleasure to see daddy coming to school so I think we will need to look at ourselves as mothers and women and pull back a little bit so the men can come forward, because sometimes they feel threatened,” she further noted, while adding that there are many advantages to joining a PTA.“There are a lot of benefits to joining a PTA.you develop a relationship with the school and all the teachers, you are informed of the activities of the school. The PTA provides an opportunity for discussing and resolving issues. (and) if problems come then you would be able to discuss them,” the Assistant Chief Education Officer explained.Continuing, she added, “it also assists in the development of the school as a community and family life because the teacher would know more about your child because. as a former teacher, principal, in the classroom when I see the children I technically see the parents, so that gives the teacher an opportunity to know the family and it really does help to structure in a unique way the roles of the teacher, administrator, principal, Board, parent, and child”.According to Mrs. Nichols the interaction of parents and teachers contribute to good performance in students.“Really and truly when parents and teachers interact with each other on a regular basis, before problems or issues come up, children perform better and I use my children as an example of that,” she informed.In the meantime, she is reiterating that parents need to ensure that their children are safe.“It is our responsibility to keep our children safe, both father and mother and safe means that we protect them so we ought to know where our children are. We must have that consistent control, so if your child is supposed to be at school we have to stop a minute and think why my child wouldn’t be at school and how can I check to find out that my child is at school,” she quipped.According to Mrs. Nichols those concerns can be addressed if parents are a part of the PTA.“It comes back to the PTA. If your child’s pattern of coming to school is on time or not being absent, I’m sure if you had formed that relationship before with the teacher, [then he or she] would want to find out immediately, especially in this technological age with these cell phones.so it is one of our fundamental duties as parents, to protect and keep your child safe,” she explained, while noting that there are other strategies that parents need to adopt to protect their children.“We need to encourage our children to walk in groups, teach them not to accept gifts and yes we want our children to be friendly and social but in the time we are living in now they really can’t be too social, the social network has to come within a context and we have to provide our children with equipment or materials that can make sounds, (to) attract peoples’ attention if they are in trouble,” she cautioned.November is being celebrated as Parent Month under the theme ‘Parenting…Right from the Start’.

UK Government makes progress on Economic Crime Plan to tackle fraud and economic crime

first_imgUK Government makes progress on Economic Crime Plan to tackle fraud and economic crime The government has today published an update on its progress in tackling economic crime and delivering on its ambition to ensure the UK remains a transparent, safe and open place for global business.The Economic Crime Plan, launched in 2019 following approval by the Economic Crime Strategic Board (ECSB), set out an ambitious programme of work to tackle fraud and money laundering and set out how the UK’s public and private sectors would work together to improve our response to economic crime.The statement of progress today is published following a meeting of the ECSB in February. It sets out how the government has worked through the coronavirus pandemic to tackle economic criminals and disrupt hostile actors.The statement of progress shows:improved understanding of the threat – including through the third publication of the UK’s National Risk Assessment of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing and the setting up of a “Fusion Cell” in the National Economic Crime Centreaddressing vulnerabilities in the system – including by updating anti-money laundering requirementsinvestment in law enforcement – an extra £63 million for the Home Office to drive efforts in dealing with economic crime and cracking down on fraudHome Secretary Priti Patel said:I will not tolerate criminals lining their pockets with dirty money at the expense of law-abiding citizens.This statement shows we have made progress, but it’s vital we continue to work with the private sector and law enforcement to win the fight against economic crime.John Glen, Economic Secretary to the Treasury said:Our collective efforts have already made it harder for criminals to abuse the UK’s global financial centre but there remains a lot to do. It is crucial that we continue to work closely with public and private sector partners to understand the threat, address vulnerabilities and crack down on illicit financial activity.The ECSB is a government taskforce chaired by the Home Secretary and the Chancellor of the Exchequer that works with senior figures from the UK financial, legal accountancy, insurance and property sectors to tackle economic crime, to protect the public and industry from scammers and fraudsters.The forward delivery plan within the statement of progress includes measures to tackle illicit finance cracking down on a range of threats that underpin cash-based money laundering, such as using money mules. The plan is underpinned by seven key actions, building on the original actions within the Economic Crime Plan and further stepping up the level of ambition.The government will continue to work closely with the private sector to ensure the UK’s status as a global financial centre and the ease of doing business cannot be taken advantage of by criminals. /Public Release.

Opinion: ‘Yes, today was heartbreaking, but why hasn’t your heart been breaking already?’

first_imgOpinion: ‘Yes, today was heartbreaking, but why hasn’t your heart been breaking already?’Posted by Ken Vance, EditorDate: Wednesday, January 6, 2021in: Opinion, Staff Opinionsshare 0 Clark County Today Editor Ken Vance offers his thoughts on today’s events in Washington DCI think most of us agree that today is a sad day in the United States. Like many of you, I’ve watched much of the coverage of the protests in Washington DC. Members of the national media and elected officials have competed with each other throughout the day to offer the strongest of descriptions — criticizing, condemning and casting blame.“America is so much better than what we’ve seen today,’’ President-elect Joe Biden said in a brief televised statement. “Enough is enough is enough.’’“The behavior that we are witnessing is shameful, unpatriotic and above all it is unlawful,’’ said Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser.“Today’s events were not representation of peaceful protests. Today, what we witnessed was unlawful, riotess behavior,’’ said Washington DC Police Chief Robert J. Contee III.blankI have shared with you in recent months that I have struggled mightily with my participation in the conversation that has been taking place in America over recent years, particularly in the past seven or eight months. Far too many of us spew our personal opinions with hatred and violence and intolerance for others. I’ve often chosen not to speak, because seemingly nobody listens anymore. And, if they do, they only listen long enough to obtain information they will use to tell you why you’re wrong and they’re right on whatever the issue is you’re discussing.I want to be very clear. I do not support violence or lawlessness in any form by anyone. I heard one television news analyst say that 90 percent of the protesters in Washington DC today were well-meaning, law-abiding citizens. Like in most situations, it’s the fringe few who take matters to those extreme levels. I’m saddened by what is happening today. It is wrong. Protestors who break the law should be prosecuted. I’m not excusing it or justifying it. But, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. It’s been brewing for months and it’s the result of actions and inaction of others that has been tolerated or ignored for far too long. Today’s events were even forecasted.The Americans who traveled to Washington DC today, obviously, have had enough. I feel their pain, because I’ve had enough as well. I’ve had enough of the violence and lawlessness that has taken place since the 2016 election by those unhappy about the election of Donald Trump as president. I’m sick and tired of the violence and atrocities that have taken place in the name of social justice. I’m disgusted by the performance of the national media, who are so obviously biased and prejudicial that I’ve essentially tuned them out, sans days like today. “It’s absolutely heartbreaking what we’ve witnessed today,’’ said one speaker on television today. Yes, today was heartbreaking. But, why hasn’t your heart been breaking already? When criminals were burning down Portland and Seattle, why wasn’t your heart breaking on those days? Where was your condemnation for those acts of violence; where was your call for the National Guard to stop that violence?Conservatives like myself are sick and tired of being ignored and, frankly, being treated despicably. We’re sick and tired of the false narratives that liberals are able to perpetuate because the national media shares their ideology and amplifies their voice and mutes the voice of people like me. We’re sick of being blamed for things we’ve had nothing to do with. We’re sick of being labeled with disgusting terms and descriptions. And, we’re sick and tired of the government, little by little, taking away our rights and freedoms.The 2020 electionI’m not a conspiracy theorist. But, how can anyone deny there were problems, at least in some areas of the country, with the 2020 election? Those issues should be examined and they haven’t been. And, that too led to what happened today in our nation’s capital.VICKI KRAFTRep. Vicki Kraft“It’s extremely unfortunate that things have gotten to this point,’’ Rep. Vicki Kraft wrote in an email to me today. “Most people do not ever want to see violence occur, me included. I wonder if any of this would’ve happened if the U.S. Supreme Court or any of the other courts along the way would’ve been willing to hear the cases brought before them questioning the outcome of the election. “Many people feel like too many lawmakers are not taking these election concerns seriously and they’re just being dismissed with almost no consideration,’’ Kraft said. “That’s why so many people have turned out in Washington D.C. and around the nation today to make their voice heard on this issue.’’Earlier in the day, Kraft had issued this statement:“As the Electoral College vote count process takes place now in Washington D.C., I want to be very clear where I stand on the Nov. 3, 2020 elections and outcome. I believe there are enough valid questions about the integrity of the election process, how ballots were tallied and reported, that as a lawmaker you would have to question and reject the results and the electoral votes being counted today. The entire validity of our election process is in question and at stake — not just for this election, but in the future as well.“For those who would say, well if President Trump had won you wouldn’t have any problem with this election, here’s the reality. In 2008 and 2012 when Obama won, I was not happy about it and did not vote for him. But I also didn’t have the concerns I have today about the election process itself. So I didn’t question it or push back on it, and most of the U.S people didn’t either. This 2020 election however, there are many challenges out there which have been raised. The integrity of our election process is key and that is what is in question now. Based on that I don’t see how lawmakers can move ahead in good conscience with this electoral college vote count and process today.’’Trump speaks to his supportersPresident Trump spoke wise words today, urging his supporters not to sink to the tactics that others have used to hold our country hostage for far too long.“We have to have peace; We have to have law and order,’’ Trump said in a video statement today. “We can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace.“I know how you feel but go home and go home in peace,’’ Trump said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestshare 0 Previous : Hockinson School Board members push to open district schools sooner Next : WATCH: Clark County TODAY LIVE • Wednesday, January 6, 2021AdvertisementThis is placeholder textlast_img read more
