02 June News – Rosemont Textiles one-way cargo straps

Today is Tuesday, 02 June and I woke up this morning thinking about something new…
today I am curious about news on 1-way cargo strapping.
It’s different from my normal news posts, but think about it… all these clothes are made in various parts of the world, and need to be shipped elsewhere, right? So shipping companies need to use 1-way cargo strapping to deliver the goods.

Carbon Brief (blog) — Countries fail to set shipping climate target

Countries rejected the opportunity to place a global emissions reduction target on the shipping industry at a meeting of the International Maritime Organisation in London this week.
Proposed by the Marshall Islands, this would have been the first time that a cap was placed on the sector, which is projected to grow in the decades ahead as trade and the world economy expands.
But the lack of consensus over how to collect data on shipping emissions put a stranglehold on the discussions, with many nations unwilling to sign up to an emissions reduction goal without a sure way to measure progress.
A growing sector
More than 90% of global trade goes by sea. According to the IMO, there were more than 104,000 ships in the world registered in over 150 nations in 2010.
This comes with an environmental cost. Shipping is responsible for around 3.1% of global carbon dioxide emissions. Every year between 2007 and 2012, ships emitted an average of one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide – more than Germany.
Total global emissions must fall to net zero in the second half of the century in order to have a good chance of meeting an international target of limiting…

A container ship seized in the Strait of Hormuz by Iran last week has been released, its operator has confirmed.
Rickmers Shipmanagement said the 24 crew members of the Maersk Tigris were “in a good condition”.
The Marshall Islands-flagged vessel was intercepted by Iranian patrol boats on 28 April and taken to Bandar Abbas.
Iran said the ship was detained because of a legal dispute between the Danish company chartering it, Maersk, and a private Iranian firm.
Maersk says the dispute dates backs to 2005, when it delivered 10 containers to Dubai for Pars Oil Products. The containers were not collected and the cargo was disposed of after 90 days by the UAE authorities, it asserts.
The Iranian company subsequently accused Maersk of default and claimed $4m (£2.6m) as the value of the cargo. Maersk said it challenged the suit successfully and in 2007 the case was dismissed.
However, an appeals court ordered it to pay $163,000 (£107,400) in February.

Iran’s Ports and Shipping Organisation said permission for the release of the ship was given on Thursday after Maersk “ensured the provision of a letter of guarantee for the enforcement of the judicial decision”.
