HAMBURG: April 21, 2016. Hapag-Lloyd AG (HL) has issued a statement saying it is discussing with the United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) ways to cooperate including "a potential combination of their mutual container shipping operations".

The two companies are basing their discussions on a relative valuation of the two businesses at 72 percent (HL) and 28 percent (UASC). To date, discussions have not produced any binding agreement and HL said any satisfactory outcome will be subject to the usual due diligence.

UASC containershipUASC has 17 new vessels on order: six 18,800 TEU and 11 15,000 TEU containerships. Founded in 1976, shareholders include the UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar.

The possible merger coincides with recent comments by Drewry Maritime Research suggesting ship scrapping will intensify this year as demand for Panamax-sized containerships ships remain "muted".

The company noted a record intake of newbuild containershps (1.7 million TEU) in 2015 coincided with an unusually low scrapping total, widening the supply and demand gap that is eroding carrier profits.

"As we have highlighted before scrapping alone does very little to redress the supply-demand imbalance – last year's scrapping total was equivalent to just 1.0 percent of the cellular fleet – but it does at least increase carriers' ability to cascade smaller East-West operated ships into North-South trades by clearing space for them," it said.

DP World weighingDP World prepares for SOLAS

DUBAI: April 21, 2016. DP World says it will have certified container weighing terminals for shippers by July 01 when the new International Maritime Organization (IMO) Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulation comes into effect.

The new regulation mandates that shippers of goods must obtain the Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of laden export containers and communicate it to ocean carriers sufficiently in advance of the ship stowage planning.

Ocean carriers and container terminal operators will be legally obliged to ensure that containers without a VGM are not loaded on to a ship in all of the 162 IMO member states that are required to enforce the new law.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, DP World chairman and CEO said: “All our terminals will be ready to meet the obligations under the legislation and each one will have certified weighing solutions in place to serve exporters in the IMO member states where we operate.”
