Containerships just gets bigger!

In year 2000, there was only 6,800 container ships.
Average size was 4,500 to 7,500 TEU!

In 2010 - 2012, the first 84, 13,000 to 14,000 TEU, post Panamax ships will be introduced!
Game Changer indeed!
(Meaning ship breakers are going to "enjoy booming business"! Read Indian ship breakers!)
Reinvestment, re routing shipping vessels will be big business!

Imagine, the practical doubling of vessel size, could see a large number of OBSOLETE vessels, probably the larger 1/4 of the vessels used in pan Europe, pan American - Asian routes. Pretty unlikely to affect FEEDER CONTAINER ships!

With the near monopolization of trade - hypermarket, OEM with China, and South Asian Trade Route States, and Automobile, components, electronics, IT with Asian Trade Route States, it's unlikely to have dramatic increase in Containershipments!

MEANING - investing in berth that can handle the larger vessels!

Some cool information for the reader:-
Post Panamax - maximum 12,000 TEU
Post Suezmax - maximum  14,000 TEU
Malaccan max - maximum  18,000 TEU

Shipping company consolidation coming?


Tremendous need for SHIP BUILDING FINANCING.
Financial companies BIG OPPORTUNITY to buy/break obsolete vessel, re introduce new vessel for leasing! Shipping Trust business!

cheerios!

Oil Tankers are another huge category waiting to expand!

Because of CHINA!

Now, 4,000 units from small to VLCC oil tankers!
China's expansion in imports from present 4 mbd to expected 12 mbd in 2018 is widely anticipated!
The first few 300,000 t oil tanker was launched from the Guangdong shipyards not too long ago!

The "Guess" in this trade, HOW SUCCESSFUL will be the Great Global Rivalry Game in affecting global crude oil supply!

cheerios!

Next is the BULK CARRIERS!

This is approximately 6,000 units with average of 40,000 to 60,000 dwt!

Mainly China, Japah, Korea bound vessels, what with the huge volume of iron ore, coke, grain needs of the region!
The post panamax bulk carriers are 100,000 dwt

The bigger ships are supposed to reduce unit tonne transport cost by 30%, when running at same speeds!
How the ECONOMIC conditions affect the shipping industry is wildly anticipated by global ship owners in the Container, Bulk and Oil Tanker industry!

cheerios!

The economic condition provides great opportunity

.......for shipping trust!

Shipping companies needs to borrow at relative high interest rate, as bankers considers the RISK!
Shipping Trust needs less returns because it's a vehicle of investments!
BUT needs to understand the plays of steel prices, global container, bulk volume fluctuations!
Any interest?

Cheerios!

It's a natural business of FINANCIAL and LOGISTIC hubbing centres!
A lot of expertise, inter play between Leasing companies and Shipping services companies (it reduces expensive loans - shipping is pretty risky business, very competitive, and being caught in massive cycle, route changes!)

It's a business of Hong Kong, Malaya and Singapore - as this are becoming INTERNATIONAL OFFSHORE FINANCIAL  centres!

cheerios!
