New time dictates new conditions. With the launch of the Nurly Zhol state infrastructure development program in the country in 2015, the Aktau sea port with its developed multimodal structure becomes an important component of the transcontinental route. The transport and logistics hub has become a meeting point for goods transported by rail or highway, the arteries of which stretch from the southern part of China. Its other component is the first sea port Kuryk built in the years of Independence, which is located south of the port of Aktau. New railways and motorways have been brought here. Kuryk specializes in ferry transportation of railway containers and freight trucks.

(2 Dec 2018) Ukrainian authorities claim Russia is blockading its ports in the Sea of Azov. The country's minister of infrastructure said on Sunday that no Ukrainian ships heading to or from the ports in Mariupol and Berdyansk have been allowed in over the last seven days. "All vessels which were entering Azov Sea in direction of seaport (of) Mariupol and Berdyansk were stopped by Russians," said Volodymyr Omelyant. Dockers at Berdyansk port also said that ships were much less frequent at the Azov Sea ports. "(The ships) rarely come. You can see that there are no vessels," said docker Vitaliy Sinhur. The seizure of three Ukrainian naval vessels and their crews last week stunned local workers, both civil and military. "I’m worried (for sailors detained in the Kerch Strait) because we overcame together many things," said the captain of the Kremenchug smaller armoured gunboat, the same as that detained in the Kerch Strait. The three ships were trying to pass through from the Black Sea into the Sea of Azov through the narrow Kerch Strait between Russia’s mainland and Crimea. The Russian coast guard refused to let them pass and after many tense hours of maneuvering fired on the Ukrainian boats and seized them along with their 24 crewmen. Ukraine has imposed entry restrictions on Russian men amid the spiraling conflict and called western countries to boost their presence in the Black Sea to deter Russia from further aggressive actions.

Discover the 5 mistakes new importers make when they are importing products from China. Don’t make the same mistakes! Get our free ebook: http://wholesaleted.com/4-step Freightos: http://wholesaleted.com/go/freightos First mistake importers make when importing products from China: Assuming that shipping by sea will be the cheapest option A lot of new importers think they will save money if they ship by sea rather than air. On the surface it seems cheaper as importers usually pay around 60 cents/KG when shipping via sea, compared to the $7/KG when shipping by air courier. Unfortunately what they don’t realize is that the reason it’s that cheap is because when shipping via sea, you ship via container, and you need to rent an entire container. They are very large and require you to be shipping hundreds of KGs to be making it worth your time. If you are an Amazon private label seller, you are unlikely to have enough stock being shipped to fill a container by at least 60-70% so it will be cheaper to ship by air. When shipping by air, you have two options: 1) Air freight 2) Air courier Air courier is when you have your items shipped door-to-door. It is the easiest but the most expensive per KG (although in smaller quantities it is cheaper). Air freight is when you have your items flown from one airport to the other. You will need to organize other additional services: * Having the items delivered to the airport * A customs broker * Having the items delivered from the airport to the final location. There are a lot of fixed fees with this which means it becomes cheaper to use air freight with larger quantities. To figure out which option will be cheaper for you, I recommend using Freightos. Second mistake importers make when importing products from China: Not using the Metric system In China, they use the Metric system and not the Imperial system. So be sure to use KGs instead of lbs and CM instead of inches. It’s important to remember that when working with Chinese suppliers that they expect you to work on their terms and their timeframes. It can be frustrating, but it’s worth it for the cheap Chinese products you import! Third mistake importers make when importing products from China: Using Less than Container Load for shipping When shipping by sea, you have two options: 1) FCL which stands for Full Container Load 2) LCL which stands for Less than Container Load Inexperienced importers fall for the trap of shipping with LCL because they see that the price are extremely cheap. What they don’t realize is that these LCL companies have special deals with the ports to charge you extremely high Destination Service Charges. The LCL companies then make their money in the form of a “rebate” which is essentially commissions/kickbacks. Destination Service Charges are usually priced per-container and cost between $500-$1000 per container for ports in the USA. But when shipping by LCL you end up paying a high fee per cubic meters. It means that you often end up paying a fee comparable to shipping an entire container. Don’t fall for this trap: If you can’t break even with FCL, then ship by air. Fourth mistake importers make when importing products from China: not calculating the correct duties you will need to pay When you import products from China, you will need to pay duties at the border. If you don’t calculate the correct rate you can get a shock if it comes back as more than you expected. Duties can be a bit complicated to work out because there are a lot of variables. For example, if you imported woolen jackets, you need to consider which country the wool came from, as some countries (like Israel) have duty-free agreements over wool, which would reduce the duties you had to pay. On the other hand if synthetic fibres were used instead of pure wool, then your duty rates would be higher since there are higher duties applied to synthetic fibres within the USA. To figure out what your duty rate is, find out what the HTS (Harmonized Tax System) code is for your item. To find this, ask your Chinese supplier as they will most likely know. You can then go through the HTS manual and find what the duty rate is for the HTS code of your products. Fifth mistake importers make when importing products from China: being afraid to make mistakes And finally - don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Through making mistakes you learn how to overcome them the next time and make even more money. Mistakes are apart of entrepreneurship. Learn from others - and learn from your own as well!

Cork has a long maritime history with people and goods ebbing and flowing through the mouth of its harbour for at least two thousand years. Nowadays it’s a Tier 1 port of national significance, located on the EU’s North Sea-Mediterranean Core Network Corridor, that’s improving links between Ireland and Europe. The Port of Cork also handles cruise liners, which bring over 180,000 tourists eager to explore the city and provide local businesses with much appreciated trade. However, in recent years the Port of Cork has experienced restrictions in handling some of today’s massive sea-faring vessels. Redevelopment is vital for the Port of Cork to remain competitive and future proof the city and county as an international gateway for trade. Plans for the Ringaskiddy port redevelopment project were approved in 2015 and while some advanced works have already been undertaken, 2018 will see this €80 million project get underway. The Port of Cork hopes the redevelopment will be completed and operational by 2020. It’s being part-funded from EU funds as a Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) project, which supports the construction and upgrade of important transport infrastructure across the European Union.

In 2012 Rotterdam was the world's sixth-largest port in terms of annual cargo tonnage. Covering 105 square kilometres (41 sq mi), the port of Rotterdam now stretches over a distance of 40 kilometres (25 mi). It consists of the city centre's historic harbor area, including Delfshaven; the Maashaven/Rijnhaven/Feijenoord complex; the harbours around Nieuw-Mathenesse; Waalhaven; Vondelingenplaat; Eemhaven; Botlek; Europoort, situated along the Calandkanaal, Nieuwe Waterweg and Scheur (the latter two being continuations of the Nieuwe Maas); and the reclaimed Maasvlakte area, which projects into the North Sea. Rotterdam consists of five distinct port areas and three distribution parks that facilitate the needs of a hinterland with 40,000,000 consumers.

Europe imposes fresh sanctions against Iran: Iran's shipping lines company says the European Union has banned Iranian vessels from using its ports and shipping lines. The head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines-- I-R-I-S-L-- says under the new sanctions the Iranian maritime fleet won't be allowed to carry petrochemical products, oil and vehicles. Mohammad-Hoseyn Daaj-Mar says the I-R-I-S-L will pursue the matter through legal channels. The European Court of Justice had already ruled as illegal E-U sanctions against Iran's shipping lines back in September. The 28-member bloc could appeal the ruling during a 70-day period. But, the court didn't receive any requests to appeal the verdict. That means the E-U should have dropped its past sanctions against the I-R-I-S-L. Under the Geneva nuclear deal between Iran and the five permanent members of the U-N Security Council plus Germany, no new sanctions would be imposed on Iran.

Documentary on brand new Port of Hambanthota. Sri Lanka, an island in South Asia is regarded as the bright pearl of Indian Ocean. Hambanthota (Maganthota) Port lies 10 knots from the bussiest International Europe-Far East shipping rote. The Water Influx ceremony of the world's first international harbour completely built inland was inaugurated by President Mahinda Rajapaksa at 9.00 a.m. on Sunday, (15th August). Hambantota had been a well known sea port in the ancient history of Sri Lanka as the name "Hambana" itself being the name of sailing vessels that had been used in the ancient times that frequented many Asian ports. Even the activities of Hambantota as a sea port are mentioned in the R.L.Bohier's book on Sri Lanka written in the Second Century. Hambantota is situated at closest point to the main shipping route that connects East and West. 200 to 300 ships ply this area daily, and now they call at Singapore and Dubai Ports. The idea of building a modern port in Hambantota was first mooted by the late Parliamentarian Mr. D.A.Rajapaksa, the father of President Rajapaksa. But it did not materialize. Later the idea came up time to time, raised in Parliament by many Mps. It remained a suggestion but never saw the light of the day due to many reasons. The Chairman of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority Dr. Priyath Bandu Wickrema says that a foreign company which was hired to carry out a feasibility study reported saying the location, Hambantota was not suitable to build a harbor and this brought the whole project to halt. However, Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister then, was not impressed by the pessimistic attitude of the report and was determined to overcome the negative reaction and proceed with it. Upon becoming President in November 2005, China was chosen to fund the project. Dr. Bandu says that Sri Lanka made an open request for funding and China was the first to respond. The port was built on a 2000 hectares of land and 450 families lived in the area were relocated with payment of adequate compensation. The Hambantota Port is being constructed by the Chinese companies China Harbour Engineering Company and Sinohydro Corporation. The total cost of the first phase of the project is estimated at $360 million. 85% of the funding is provided by the Chinese Government and the remaining 15% by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority. The mouth of the natural harbour at Hambantota has a 22m depth. When completed, the port will have a 1.5 km long breakwater, with a minimum basin depth of 17m. The turning circle will be 600m. A dam will also be built to prevent flooding in nearby areas, and a seawall made of interlocking concrete blocks will protect the port from high seas. A $550 million tax-free port zone is being set up outside the port, with local and international companies expressing interest in setting up shipbuilding, ship-repair and warehousing facilities in the zone. The Port is expected to provide 13,000 direct and indirect employments to over 100,000 people The first phase of the Port will consist of two 600m general purpose berths, a 310m bunkering berth and a 120m small craft berth. It will also contain a bunkering facility and tank farm which will include 8 tanks for marine fuel, 3 tanks containing aviation fuel and 3 for Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). A 15 floor administrative complex is also under construction as part of the project. The port will also have facilities to handle port related large scale industries such as handling and bagging of cement and fertilizer in addition to storage of fuel and LP Gas thereby providing opportunity for a third LP Gas operator to open up business that would create competitiveness in the gas market. The oil tank farm will have 14 tanks of which 8 tanks will be for storage of fuel for bunkering facilities for vessels, 3 tanks for storage of aero fuel and the other 3 tanks for storage of LP Gas. The total project will be completed in 4 stages and the first stage operations will commence in November this year, one year ahead of schedule. During the first stage the port will handle 3 ships a day, and after completion of the total project, the Port will be able to handle 33 ships at a time.

THE FATE OF EUROPE Black Sea, south of France, surrender Release Date: April 5th, 1953 ... (Episode #22) The Russian navy finally goes on the offensive in the Black Sea after 3 years of defeats and defense of the Mother Russia. In early May 1944, the Black Sea Fleet of the Red Navy moves into position to retake the port city of Sevastopol. The German Luftwaffe tries in vain to thwart the attack, but is forced to retreat. On May 9th, the city is finally liberated. In the aftermath of battle, the German SS Corps murder and plunder the Russian people on their trek back to Germany. In the west, Operation Anvil is put forth in motion as hundreds of Allied ships, set sail for the coast of southern France. Seven French divisions under command of General De Gaulle lead the invasion forces. Their first objective is to land and seize the port cities of Marseilles and Toulon. This will allow the Allied armies to unload thousands of troops, tanks, other vehicles and supplies. They are then ordered to fight their way through the French countryside and connect with the Normandy forces and drive back the Nazis back across the Rhine and into Germany. Paris is liberated on August 25, 1944. Allied leaders meanwhile, meet in secrecy in Yalta to formulate post-war plans and the formation of the international body that will become the United Nations. In March 1945, the Allied assault finally crosses the Rhine River and eventually forces the Third Reich into total surrender. Just before the end, Hitler commits suicide. The end comes in May of 1945 as Germany surrenders and new world order is born.

Dimitrios Theologitis Head of Unit "Maritime Transport and Ports Policy; Maritime Security" Maritime Transport, Galileo and Intelligent Transport Directorate Directorate General for Energy and Transport European Commission An extremely interesting insight provided by Mr. Theologitis relating to the European Maritime Transport Space without Barriers initiative, commonly known as Blue Belt which is a regional plan for ships trading between European Union member states. Under Blue Belt, vessels sailing between two European Union Ports and carrying European Union cargoes certain facilitations will be applied to ease the process of the vessels entering and leaving ports. This will be coupled with a Blue Lane concept whereby vessels will go into an area where customs and other normal checks will be dispensed with other than spot checks which is a standard practice everywhere. In conjunction with the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) a pilot project will be carried out during 2011 with full facilitation during 2015 to allow time for uniform standards and systems to be put in place in order for this to be achieved. One aspect on board related to this will be the provision of broadband communications in order to transmit and receive the data exchanges that will be needed to enable this to work. European Commission E Maritime http://ec.europa.eu/transport/maritime/e-maritime_en.htm The EU e-Maritime initiative aims to foster the use of advanced information technologies for working and doing business in the maritime transport sector. The accelerated emergence of information and communication technologies is shaping our professional lives. Internet has dramatically affected jobs and business practices in all professional sectors. It obliges organisations to search for ways to realise the full benefits for competitive advantage and sustainability. Maritime transport administrative procedures are complex, time-consuming and, even today, are often done on paper. Major European ports have advanced information systems, which deliver considerable quality and efficiency gains. However, the interoperability between port information systems is practically non-existent limiting the potential for new services and economies of scale. Small ports might not be equipped with electronic data transmission at all. Normally at each port call, shipping companies have to enter the same data repeatedly and often manually, resulting in duplication and errors. Not only is the internet changing the way we do business, but also how we communicate with our social networks, howwe search for information, and even how we learn new skills for our trade. For the "internet" generation, access to cyberspace is a must. Also in the future Europe will need skilful and experienced European seafarers. This will be possible only if future mariners are offered the same possibilities to keep in touch and to learn as other professions on land. The EU e-Maritime envisages promoting interoperability in its broader sense. It aims to stimulate coherent, transparent, efficient and simplified solutions in support of cooperation, interoperability and consistency between Member States and transport operators.

Europe’s governments are breathing a sigh of relief as the number of refugees arriving from Africa falls. But at what price? Reporter Shafagh Laghai traces the new wall across Africa, built by the European Union. Her journey begins in Mali, where the mission of the Bundeswehr, Germany’s Armed Forces, is not just to combat terrorism but also to prevent migration. Armies around the world are under pressure, especially as they respond to threats from well beyond their own borders. The German and French armed forces, for example, are involved in a range of missions from Afghanistan to North Africa. In a bid to cut costs, some of their core functions have been outsourced to commercial enterprises. But at what price? War and defense are big business and wherever there are armed forces, the private sector is never far away. For example, Germany’s main military training ground is run by a private munitions firm. Politicians and military leaders lobby for weapons exports all over the world in support of arms manufacturers at home. Former politicians move seamlessly into the arms sector. Our two-part documentary takes us to missions abroad and talks to military, political and business leaders as it investigates just how privatized our defense forces are and what repercussions the links between the business and military worlds might have in the future. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

한진해운 선박 45척 운항차질… 국제 물류에 혼란 The bankruptcy of the Hanjin shipping line has thrown ports and retailers around the world into confusion, with giant container ships marooned and merchants worrying whether hundreds of tons of goods being carried by the Korean company will reach shelves. Oh Jung-hee reports. Almost half of Hanjin Shipping's fleet has stopped operating,... ...as the company was put under a court-led restructuring scheme on Thursday. 45 ships are denied entry to ports,... or remain anchored,... in seven countries including China, Japan, India, and the U.S.,... as port workers refuse to offload or take aboard cargo in fear of unpaid fees. According to the Korea International Trade Association,... China seized or was to seize 10 Hanjin vessels,... while Singapore already has seized one early this week. The ships were denied passage through the Suez Canal as well. Cargo moving from Asia to the U.S. and Europe,... and vice versa,... are stranded in Asia waiting to be loaded. As such, a shockwave in the global supply chain seems inevitable,... as Hanjin Shipping represented nearly 8 percent of trans-Pacific trade volume for the U.S. The U.S. National Retail Federation, the world's largest retail trade association, urged the U.S. government to cooperate with the Korean government to prevent further disruptions in the market. The association described Hanjin's bankruptcy as having "a ripple effect throughout the global supply chain," ... and expressed concern that "there are millions of dollars' worth of merchandise that needs to be on store shelves that could be impacted by this." Korea's exports to the U.S. have been affected as well,.. as almost 46-percent of Samsung Electronics' exports,... 24-percent of LG Electronics',... and 58-percent of HP's exports were handled by Hanjin Shipping. To prevent further disruptions,... Korea's second largest shipping firm, Hyundai Merchant Maritime Company, has deployed 13 ships heading to Los Angeles and Europe. Other shipping lines are also moving to take over some of Hanjin's traffic,... but that won't stop shipping prices from rising,... as vessels are already operating at full capacity due to high seasonal demand.
