Hapag-Lloyd Freight Vessels

After the merger with UASC (United Arab Shipping Company), Hapag-Lloyd has boasted one of its youngest fleets in the cargo industry. The vessels will be dismantled accordingly to the environmental regulations and certified shipyards. The seven-year-old container ships that had a capacity of 4,101 TEU will be recycled in Turkey and in China. The shipyards within Turkey and China are certified to recycle ships in an environmentally friendly manner.

The COO of Hapag-Lloyd said that the recycling of these ships is part of the restructuring project of their fleet. In 2017, the company already had three older vessels from the former UASC fleet that was dismantled in an environmentally friendly manner.

Also, Hapag-Lloyd is now offering a service to the East Coast of Africa for the very first time. They are already demands to Mombasa and Daar-es-Salaam over Jeddah for onward transshipment and local distribution.

They are expecting in April to deploy four vessels each with a capacity of 1,200 TEU in the new East Africa Service. This will be a sole operation.

Senior Managing Director Region Middle East, Lars Christiansen, informed that this would a trade which their customers have wanted the company to serve for awhile now. And EAS will benefit from Hapag-Lloyd’s strong presence in the Middle East and connection to the global network.

Shifts in the Trucking Industry

Due to mother nature, there have been major delays in shipping freight. But this has also created a vicious cycle. Either the shipment cannot be sent on time due to the weather, or the shipment that was shipped on time was damaged during the transit. Shipping carriers find themselves overwhelmed with the high volume of freight that needs to be sent due to high demand, and the high volume of claims that are being processed.

Carriers’ that only have a shipping insurance policy that only coverage few cents per pound and NOT full replacement value, finds themselves facing a nightmare.
