first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Pixabay (Pixabay License) The shipping industry could see more slow steaming and transhipment being triggered as part of the IMO 2020 sulphur rule, according to shipping consultancy Drewry.“Shippers rightfully want more transparency regarding how the new fuel surcharge mechanisms will work, but they should be mindful of the potential risks to future service options, competition and rates if they don’t concede anything to carriers.”2020 is going to be a pivotal year for the carrier industry. Failure to recover more of the fuel cost from customers than in the past, estimated to be around 50%, could be ruinous for some lines, many of which are still operating with highly distressed balance sheets, Drewry explained.The consultancy added that there is a general acceptance among shippers that they will have to pay more towards the fuel cost burden, although there are still a number of sticking points regarding the mechanics of how it should be done.On the other side, carriers will argue that a short-term win for shippers could quickly turn into a loss. It is something that shippers might want to consider during negotiations as any cost saving today might raise the likelihood of another carrier bankruptcy, causing unwanted chaos in the supply chain.“The reality is that carriers’ fuel costs will start to differ to a considerable degree as the new fuels are pumped into their ships; the variance to be largely driven by the type of fuel used.”Depending on their success in raising the fuel recovery rate, carriers will inevitably seek to mitigate the anticipated higher operating expenses. One potential side-effect from the new regulations could be greater slow-steaming and use of transhipment.The logic being that as ships sailing speed is reduced and round voyages are extended carriers will drop ports from rotations to ensure that transit times to key points remain competitive, according to Drewry. Fewer direct port calls will induce greater need for transhipment and feeder operations.“The upside from this shift towards more transhipment from a ports and terminals perspective is that this will inflate the global port throughput sum as four container movements at the quayside will be required instead of two as with direct port-to-port calls.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Trinamool Congress (TMC) came out strongly against the price hike of Indian Railways fares by the Union Railways Minister Dinesh Trivedi, Wednesday.According to media sources, TMC chief Mamata Banerjee is upset with the increase in fares and wants it taken back.The TMC chief asked the Railways Minister to either resign or rollback the increased prices.Derek O’Brien was the first to go public with the party’s anger.”Railway Budget…what was all that about increasing fares across the board? Upper class…maybe ok…but all? Sorry,cannot agree….,” TMC MP Derek O’Brien tweeted immediately after the budget.Stating that party’s ”policies and principals” don’t allow it to burden the common people, TMC’s senior leader Sudip Bandopadhyay said: ”People must be protected at all costs.”Demanding to withdraw the price hike, Bandopadhyay said, “Dinesh Trivedi never consulted us on the budget.”However, Trivedi said in a press conference after the budget session that “I have done my duty… now I leave it to God.””I have not been asked to rollback the fare price…..people can afford the price hike…..” said the Minister.He also told the media that the “party (TMC) is not aware of the price hike.”last_img read more

first_imgDIBYANGSHU SARKAR/AFP/Getty Images [Representational Image] After strong protests against the controversial elevated corridor in Bengaluru, the Karnataka High Court has halted further developments over the project initiated by the HD Kumaraswamy-led government. The project has faced strong opposition and online petitions signed by more than 1 lakh people.A bench headed by Acting Chief Justice Narayana Swamy and Justice Dinesh Kumar has asked the government not to proceed further in the matter until a case on the functioning of the Bangalore Metropolitan Committee is disposed of. The next date of hearing has been fixed on March 19, reported The News Minute.The strong opposal came after the residents came to know that more than 120 trees in Cubbon Park area will have to be chopped down to complete the project. More than 3,700 trees will have to be cut down or relocated for the process of building the entire stretch of the elevated corridor mostly from Cubbon Park, Jayamahal Palace road, Coles Park and areas surrounding IISc campus that have numerous untouched trees in the concrete jungle city.The Karnataka Road Development Corporation Limited (KRDCL) had hastily sent out tender invitations for the 102-km long elevated corridor project to connect the city’s network of roads and to end the traffic congestion. But with the initiation of the corridor, Bengaluru’s already diminishing green belt would further go down by a huge number. KRDCL had floated the first phase of tender without public consultation.Trees to be axedJayamahal Palace Road: 356From IISc campus to Mehkri Circle: 195From IISc campus to Yeshwanthpur Circle: 32Raja Ram Mohan Roy Road: 108Queen’s Road, Kasturba Road: 120Promenade Road near Coles Park: 47 According to an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) survey, not just trees, the project will have an impact on the city’s already polluted water bodies. The proposed alignment is also in violation with the National Green Tribunal ruling on buffer zone of lakes on 10 counts.Ulsoor, Varthur, Hebbal and Agara lakes are the major water bodies that will get affected due to the construction of the road network as the debris will fall into the water sources and affect marine life and ecology.

As more pollution is emitted by vehicles in a traffic jam, the new road network can be a solution. While several environmental concerns have been raised by the people, some organisations have supported the project. A certain section of people from the Residents Welfare Association (RWA) from Cox Town, Koramangala, Sarjapur, Whitefield, Bellandur and other areas have pledged their support towards the project following the expansion of the roads.However, the residents and many civic organisations led by Citizens of Bengaluru (CfB) have organised a rally against the elevated corridor on Saturday, as a take on the government.Bengaluru Bus Prayanikara Vedike, Environment Support Group and Citizen Action Forum are some of the prominent groups participating in the rally, reported The Hindu.last_img read more
