BTJ 4/16 - Report: Baltic container market

In the late 1990s, shipment management was largely conducted by phone, fax, pen and pencil, and occasionally with the use of e-mails.

But these "manual" methods were slow and error-prone, while information sent in these formats could be incorrect.

As such, they needed to be re-entered by carriers, creating the possibility of additional onerous to fix slip-ups along the logistics chain. And as the new millennium approached, the need for re-tooling the industry became all the more apparent.

E-commercializing ocean shipping, by Inna Kuznetsova, President and Chief Operating Officer, INTTRA

The 4/2016 issue of Baltic Transport Journal in the Report section features also:

  • Re-framed. New container-based frame for fiished vehicle logistics, by Rutger Noorlander, UNIT45's Commercial Manager

Since its emergence, the simple yet ingenious invention of a 20-foot box has seen many modifications - high-cube, hard/open-top, ventilated, reefer, tanker, even bulk, to name just a few. However, vehicle transports used to be reserved for specialized sea & land car carriers. This may change sooner rather than later thanks to yet another container variation.

  • One smart app(le). The BCT Riga: A small terminal pioneering a big technological shift, by Guenter Schmidmeir, Navis VP & General Manager, EMEA

Typically, major box handling facilities such as Rotterdam, Hong Kong, and Los Angeles are what one would expect to hear about when discussing terminal automation and the modernization of the shipping industry. It's true that, as major hubs, these terminals do have the capacity to make large investments in the latest hardware and software in order to operate at peak efficiency. However, while not as prominently featured in the global spotlight, many small ports across the world are making equally impressive strides, and are poised to run alongside large and formidable terminals in process optimization and automation.

  • A nose for hidden dangerous goods. Hapag-Lloyd's Cargo Petrol watchdog software, by Till Behrend

Dangerous goods that are either declared incorrectly or not at all pose a major risk to ships, their crews, and the environment. Hapag-Lloyd's intelligent Cargo Patrol software helps to systematically detect them.
