Industry Updates
I. Industry Update:
Orson Wu, PLGD, YMHQ
A. Overall Demand/Supply Forecast
Recent mainlane trade indicators have been painting a confusing
picture regarding the direction of trade growth in full year 2015.
Whilst box trade growth figures on the peak leg mainlane trades of
the Far East-Europe and the Transpacific were negative in March,
there is no consensus on the longevity of this period of weakness.
Whilst initial data points for April look less weak than those for
March, projections for volume expansion on the peak leg mainlane
trades in 2015 have been revised downwards slightly in order to
reflect this uncertainty (see page 12). Global box trade is expected
to expand by5.8% in 2015, reaching 181m TEU, before growing
by 6.4% in 2016.
Overall container capable supply is currently expected to expand
by 6.3% in2015. However, the pace at which containership
capacity is being delivered is set to slow in 2016, with container
capable growth expected to reach 4.3%.Robust growth in the fleet
2012
2013
so far in 2015, particularly in the very large sizes, has contributed
to significant downward pressure on box freight rates. Operators
are expected to find it very challenging to support mainlane freight
rates during the remainder of 2015, as they battle to limit the
impact of capacity growth. Meanwhile, the charter market appears
to have benefited from a slowdown in key parts of the ‘cascade’.
Fundamentals in the charter market have also improved as a result
of contraction in the charter market fleet. A limited idle fleet,
of around 1.9% by early May, also indicates the tighter market
environment. These trends looks set to hold, although in the
longer-term, a sustained period of weakness in the freight market
could pose a threat to further improvements in charter vessel
earnings.

B. Trade Analysis and Statistics
■ Drastic measures needed to halt Asia-Europe rate collapse
✽Freight rates on the Asia to Europe route have dropped to their
lowest levels on record as carriers face off in a damaging rate
war amidst weak vessel utilisation. The SCFI spot rates from
Shanghai to North Europe reached an all-time low of $243/
teu on 12 June and could fall further with rates as low as $150/
teu reportedly offered by carriers. Current spot rates are well
below breakeven levels, estimated at about $800/teu based on
Alphaliner’s calculations. Effective freight rates, after deducting
fuel surcharges, are now negative for carriers with BAF (bunker
adjustment factor) averaging $337/teu in June.
✽T he widespread practice of void sailings has proven to be
ineffective so far. Carriers have cancelled 52 voyages or 10% of
all Far East to North Europe sailings during the first six months
of this year, the highest rate of sailing cancellations ever recorded
on the trade. Despite this, carriers’ reluctance to permanently
withdraw excess capacity have foiled all of their previous rate
restoration efforts.
✽The capacity on this ‘2M’ service, branded 'AE-9' by Maersk
and 'Condor' by MSC, will be slashed from 9,500 teu to 6,500
teu through a replacement of the 9,500 teu-class ships currently
plying the service, and the removal of existing wayport calls
on the Mediterranean. The move, to be implemented by August
2015, is part of a revamp of the 2M Asia-Europe network which
is expected to affect all six of its FE-North Europe strings and five
13,800 and 19,000 teu are still due to join the FE-Europe trade in
FE-Mediterranean strings, with details currently being finalised
the coming six months.
and to be announced later after receiving regulatory approvals.
✽With cargo demand to Europe expected to
remain weak for the rest of the year, there needs
to be more drastic capacity cuts. The best way
to achieve this is for each of the four alliances
to share equally the burden of reducing overall
capacity by removing the smallest loop from
each of the four alliances. This would entail the
suspension of the AE-9/Condor by 2M, the FAL3/
AEC7/AEX4 by O3, the NE8/CES by CKYHE
and Loop 1 by G6. Such a move would remove a
total of 39,000 teu each week, representing 14%
of the current FE-North Europe capacity.
✽Carriers’ failure to take such drastic measures now
would have significant negative repercussions,
especially since some 25 new ships of between Source: Alphaliner Newsletter

II. World Economy:
■Composite leading indicators point to growth convergence in most major economies
■In the latest statistics, there is a slight boost in manufacturing sector in the US whilst a sudden fall appears in the nonmanufacturing sector. The readings in both sectors in Eurozone and China keep flat, showing an uncertainty after/before major
financial policy implementation.

Jade Art No.102
Title: Phoenix and auspice
The materials: Old white jade of Ming Dynasty, ruby, 18K white/rose, diamond,
emerald.

phoenixes and a peony flower. The jade is fine and workmanship is marvelous. The

The pattern of two phoenixes embracing a peony flower is a symbol of great wealth

emerald pendant with tussles.
