Transportation insurance

Transportation insurance

Shipping containers through oceans has been a success over the decades. It’s so efficient that we forget the natural environment can be really tough and damageable. Fortunately incidents occur very rarely but when it occurs it can be severe like the MSC ZOE vessel in North Europe or the HAPAG-LLOYD YANTIAN EXPRESS on route to Canada. Despite they are very large container ship, till the water or weather conditions can be severe as you can read in the here joined article.

We keep on inviting you to cover your shipments with a transportation insurance. TRANSO’s one is particularly fitted for wine shipments from door to door (not only seaborne). We highly recommend you to confirm its use for each and every container you place with TRANSO.

Anyhow, we thank you for 2018 support, wishing you the best for 2019, at least a safe year.

The container lines recent history

The container lines recent history

The shipping industry has been moving on with further concentration as here below reminded.

However, 2018 has recorded even lower scores in terms of schedule reliablity. Not only vessels are getting later but when they are late, the delay is further than the years before. With very slim global profit (when positive) carriers are reluctant to increase vessel speed for schedules recovering. Other reasons come from more and more port congestions at loading/discharge and the truck driver’s shortages in USA and also at countries of origin. Improvments would be expected and welcome but the recent performances do not support positive changes.

More than ever you can rely on TRANSO team and services to assist you for monitoring as accurately as possible the supply chain of your wine imports.

Change in MED services

Change in MED services

Both Ocean Alliance and THE Alliance services from MED to US East are merging into one single service as from early December.

The 2 existing services are deploying 4500 TEU vessels. The new one will deploy 8500 TEU vessels. The total capacity is slightly lower.

However in case of delays or blank sailings, alternative are very limited ; for instance, from FOS, there is no direct sailing alternative (only via Algeciras with Maersk or Valencia with MSC).

Carriers are announcing this is to recover from low freight rates and improve the service reliability as we have all noted less accuracy and more lead times in worldwide shipments.
