We are establishing a culture of increased performance enhancement in the group.”Strong results from the technical manufacturing and services division, Elevator Technology, and Steels Europe helped it to navigate difficult market conditions. Double-digit growth in both sales and order book at Elevator marked a four per cent increase year-on-year. Slowness in the Chinese market affected growth, with elevator sales flat, while South Korean and US operations picked up the slack. Full-year expectations for profit before taxes and interest remain at €1.6bn.Despite the positive results, the firm’s share price fell slightly through the day.

By Mike Wackett 01/06/2020 Headhaul cargo visibility for Asia-North Europe carriers is still unclear for July and August, with much depending on the speed of the economic recovery and the appetite of consumers to spend, following the easing of Covid-19 lockdowns.But for now carriers appear to be holding fire on announcing further blanked voyages, presumably until they see whether the current – some would say “artificial” – surge in demand can be sustained.On Wednesday, Rotterdam’s World Gateway terminal will welcome the newly-crowned world’s biggest containership, the 23,964 teu HMM Algeciras, fully-laden, from Asia on its maiden voyage.And the 23,820 teu HMM Oslo, the second in a series of 12 ULCVs ordered by the South Korean carrier, is scheduled to arrive in North Europe towards the end of June, on THE Alliance’s merged FE2/FE4 loop.The HMM Oslo is also expected to be fully loaded from Asia, as the aggressive blanking programmes of carriers, cancelling 37, or 28%, of the scheduled 130 sailings in May, has led to what shippers have described as a “nightmare” capacity crunch.But according to eeSea data, carriers have so far announced only 21 blanked sailings out of the 122 advertised for June, and in July just three out of 126 sailings, suggesting a more optimistic outlook by the shipping lines.However, Alan Murphy, chief executive of analyst Sea-Intelligence, warned today that shippers could still see a sharp increase in the number of banked sailings in the third quarter.“With the third-quarter peak season approaching, we are anticipating a large number of blank sailings from July onwards. We advise market participants to prepare for cancellations of services that have already seen substantial cancellations.“On the transpacific, we expect THE Alliance’s EC3 and PS5 and the 2M’s TP8/Orient to be heavily blanked, while on Asia-Europe, we expect it to be 2M’s AE2/Swan and AE20/Dragon and THE Alliance’s FE4,” Mr Murphy said.The judicious blanking programmes of the carriers has certainly supported short-term rates, with the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index (SCFI) component for North Europe on Friday recording a spot rate of $863 per teu, 10% higher than the same week of last year.And this confidence has spilled over to long-term contract rates, with Oslo-based freight rate benchmarking firm Xeneta reporting contract rates in May had “held comparatively steady”.Indeed, the achievement is much greater because Europe is still painfully coming through a pandemic with the ‘new normal’ for consumers far from certain.“Given the debilitating effects of the pandemic on global economic activity, there may have been a belief that rates would freefall, but not so,” said Xeneta chief executive Patrik Berglund.Forwarders The Loadstar has spoken to have mixed views on the sustainability of the demand surge, some reporting demand starting to return to normal.However, the general consensus is that it is the vast shipments of anti-virus PPE and orders that could not be cancelled before retail lockdowns that are filling the ships currently departing Asia.“We’re fighting for space daily with shipping lines,” a UK forwarder told The Loadstar today.But another source said he could see demand “falling off a cliff” in a few weeks’ time.“New orders will not be placed anytime soon as the reopened department stores need to try to gauge the appetite of financially stressed consumers to spend on non-essential and luxury goods,” he said.“Plus they have a massive backlog of stock that they will need to try to shift in summer sales to get the cash tills ringing again,” he added. “And don’t forget that some of these retailers will not come through this at all.”One liner source told The Loadstar of being “surprised, but very pleased” about the unexpected demand spike, but the view being taken internally on the outlook was “wait and see”, although “cautiously optimistic”.

News Why North Korean Propaganda Media Presents ‘Centenarians’? News North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China [imText1]North Korea is not excluding propaganda for centenarians.Rodong Sinmun, on January 31, announced that, “On the 28th of last month, an old woman Lee Chang Gyun, who lives at Kanganly in Eunpa district of north Hwanghae province, was granted a benevolent centennial birthday gift by the great leader (Kim Jong Il)”.Sinmun also wrote about the gratitude of the old woman, who said, “I am glad to have lived a century, enjoying happiness under this Socialist system. Besides that, I am grateful to recieve a centennial birthday gift from the great leader.” Kim Jong Il-named gifts were granted to centenarians in North Korea. By broadcasting gift-granting ceremonies on North Korea’s Central TV and Broadcast, North Korea propagates ‘Kim Jong Il’s Benevolence Politics’ and draws loyalty from the North Koreans. Until now, it is unknown exactly how many centenarians are in North Korea. The number can be roughly inferred only through broadcasts regarding gift ceremonies offered to centenarians. Centenarians that the North Korean media recently presented to are as follows: on Central Broadcast, on October 17, 2004, Cho Sung Jae (100) of Gyangdory in Gaechun city of south Pyongan province, October 13, 2004, Ann Young Bock (100), on August 6, 2003, Park Sung Ock (100) of Sinchun district of Hwanghae province and in May 2003, Lee Mun Sik (100); on the Central News Agency, on September 12, 2005, Park Boon Lyue (100) of Suktanli in Songlim city of north Hwanghae province and in July 2004, Lee Jyung Sook (105) of Mankyungdae dong of Mankyungdae district in Pyongyang city; on Pyongyang Broadcast, in September 2002, Roh Young Sim (108) of Wooryungli in Sinchun district of south Hwanghae province, Lim Mun Sun (106) of Sinchun eup in Sinchun district of south Hwanghae province, Jun Taek Sun (106) of Kyumya eup in Kyumya district of south Hamkyung province, Han Young Won (102) of Jangchung 2 dong in Mission district of Pyongyang city. Rare Centenarians, Flashed over the CountryAccording to the South Korean National Statistical Office, the South Korean centenarians amount to 1,915, 169 males and 1,746 females.Compared to this, the North Korean centenarians are too rare. If a centenarian appears, the news is flashed all over the country.The North Korean administration encourages being centenarians – Central TV introduces national food (traditional food) preferred by centenarians on the ‘health common knowledge’ program and emphasizes a balanced combination of work and exercise. Books regarding health common knowledge are also published. In 2001, the publication ‘a way to centenarians’ even got attention. ‘Three secret formulas’ are famous, which leaders spread around. The three secret formulas are ‘do not put work down, do not have an unbalanced diet, and be optimistic’. When the leaders say things like this, the North Koreans complain that ‘although we work to the death and do not have any unbalanced diet, we do not live for a century.” Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak News Facebook Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest By Daily NK - 2006.02.03 5:09pm Daily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

David Friend Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The Toronto stock market could move slightly higher on Friday as investors pare some of the steep losses from the previous session. The Canadian dollar was up 0.15 of a cent at 97.30 cents US in the morning. Facebook LinkedIn Twitter On Thursday, the TSX plummeted 3%, closing more than 350 points lower in its biggest one-day drop since November. Much of the pull was from resource stocks and tanking commodity prices. In the U.S., investors are expected to focus on a move from Moody’s Investors Service to cut the credit ratings of 15 of the world’s largest banks, including Barclays, Deutsche Bank and Royal Bank (TSX:RY). The ratings agency said Thursday it was especially concerned about banks with significant financial markets businesses because those markets have become so volatile. U.S. futures were higher with the Dow Jones industrial futures ahead 41 points to 12,543. The Nasdaq futures gained 4.75 points to 2,557 and the S&P 500 futures added 4.25 points to 1,322.50. In commodities, the August crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange was up 23 cents at US$78.43 a barrel. August gold was up $3.70 at US$1,569.20 an ounce. European and Asian stocks fell Friday after economic reports suggested growth will weaken in the world’s major economies. Downbeat data on Germany, China and the U.S. came on top of uncertainty over whether European leaders will make progress in tackling their debt crisis at key meetings. Germany’s Ifo institute reported that business optimism fell for a second straight month in Europe’s largest economy, which has been growing more strongly than the 17-member eurozone as a whole. The survey index dipped to 105.3 from 106.9 in May. That followed a U.S. Labor Department report from Thursday that the four-week average of applications for unemployment benefits jumped to the highest level in nine months. Appetite for financial assets such as stocks was also dented by the results of a monthly HSBC survey, which showed that manufacturing in China has continued to contract. China’s growth has been a pillar of the global economy in recent years, so its slowdown has been of particular concern to investors. Britain’s FTSE 100 fell 0.86% to 5,518.55, while the French CAC 40 eased 0.42% to 3,101.02 and the German DAX 30 blue chips index fell 0.91% to 6,285.71. In Asian trading, Japan’s Nikkei 225 index fell 0.2% to 8,802.54 and South Korea’s Kospi slid 2.1% to 1,848.57. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index lost 1% to 19,067.51 and Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 was down 1% at 4,046.70. Benchmarks in Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia fell while the Philippines rose. Markets in mainland China were closed for a public holiday.

Gov’t Promoting the Use of Ethanol in Motor Vehicles Six-Month Pilot Project Launched UncategorizedMay 3, 2006 Advertisements RelatedGov’t Promoting the Use of Ethanol in Motor Vehicles Six-Month Pilot Project Launched FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Petrojam Limited on Monday (May 1) launched its six-month pilot project geared at determining the performance of a cross-section of motor vehicles with the ethanol blend.Ethanol, an oxygenate blended with gasoline in a mixture of 10 per cent ethanol to 90 per cent gasoline, is an octane enhancer to boost engine performance.Minister of Industry, Commerce, Science and Technology (with Energy), Phillip Paulwell, who addressed the launch of the pilot project at the refinery, explained that the six-month pilot was a precursor to the full roll out of the ethanol blend into the market. “We want to ensure that this project is successful because come next year, the government will be declaring the abolition of the use of MTBE as an octane enhancer,” the Minister declared.Preliminary studies reveal that Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether or MTBE, the octane enhancer produced from petroleum, which is used in fuels for the transportation sector, is detrimental to the environment, both as a contaminant of ground water and a pollutant of the air from emissions.Minister Paulwell said it was important for Jamaica to “move quickly to the ethanol blended fuels,” as the initiative provided several benefits including the reduction of the country’s petroleum foreign exchange bill by using locally grown feedstock from sugarcane, facilitation of the development of the local sugar industry, fuel diversification for energy security, and environmental benefits through cleaner tailpipe emissions.Manager for Safety and Environment at Petrojam, Leon Jarrett informed that 70 vehicles, representing the range of transportation on Jamaica’s roads, would be used in the pilot project. The vehicles will range from 1990 to 2006 models and will represent 12 manufacturers.Mr. Jarrett further outlined that the volunteer vehicle owners, who were from the Commerce Ministry and the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica, would be required to maintain records and use only fuel supplied from the designated pumps at the refinery.He explained that periodic inspection and assessment of vehicles would be carried out by the manufacturers throughout the pilot period.The data collected from the pilot project will be reviewed and a comprehensive report issued at the end of the pilot project on December 31, 2006.
