Seaspan Corp and the Freight Industry

Seaspan Corp. is the worldwide leader in independent container shipping management and ownership. They are dedicated to providing an unmatched level of quality and service to all of their customers. And as part of their dedication, they have now informed that they are acquiring the controlling shares of Greater China Intermodal Investments LLC which is a China-based joint venture with firm Carlyle Group.

This will give the company an even bigger share on the charter market. Julie Steinberg from WSJ writes that this $450 million-dollar deal will bring Seaspan 18 container ships. This would jumpstart into a bigger acquisition strategy. Currently, Seaspan is the world’s largest containership lessor by cargo-carrying capacity. According to Alphaliner, the combination of companies would compose 8% of the market and along with the charter demand, leasing prices will go up.  Adding the revenues of the companies along with the $250 million investment that was infused from Canada’s Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd., this will give Seaspan the financial advantage and positioning within the freight industry.

According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics which is update every 5 years, the movement of freight in the domestic and international trade during 2013 was 55 million tons of freight daily. And as the demand of freight transportation grows so does the concern for safety. Freight Insurance is an integral part of freight transportation.

Large trucks during 1990 to 2013 accounted for almost all freight transportation fatalities by 95.8%, and the majority of related highway fatalities involved passenger vehicles. Most hazardous material are transported by truck, and if there is an accident the damage is huge. About 2% of incidents in 2014 were accident related which composed 80.9% of all property damage.
