first_img Air freight rates out of China have continued to fall, although not at the pace they rose.New figures for the past week from the TAC Index and Freight Investor Services (FIS) show China to Europe down $0.59, while China to the US is down $0.23.FIS said the slower rate drop was due to Hong Kong, where rates rose to the US by $1.14. Shanghai, however, fell $1.37 to Europe and $1.60 to the US.Seabury data from last week showed eastbound transpacific capacity grew 4% compared with last year, while Asia-Europe was down only 10%. Asia to Latin America was down 13% year on year. But, it added, “transatlantic air cargo capacity shows no signs of recovery yet”. © Scaliger By Alex Lennane 27/05/2020center_img It said there was limited growth of passenger freighters on the transatlantic, with most added on routes to and from Asia, and intra-Middle East and south Asia.Passenger freighters had added close to 75,000 tonnes of air cargo capacity a week since the peak decline, but, as Seabury notes, most of it is directed towards the urgent demand for personal protective equipment (PPE).Overall, global air cargo capacity is 26% lower than this time last year.FIS’s forward-looking rates suggest that next month will see China to Europe rates rise $0.32, but China to US will fall $0.40. It forecasts that in July, both lanes will lift $0.20.But, FIS notes, there remain many uncertainties in the market, citing the likelihood of freighter capacity needing to go into maintenance. While freighter capacity has been relatively stable, FIS warns it could fall in the coming months.It said: “The second unknown is the scale of passenger demand, and thus the availability of belly capacity. The reluctance of governments to engage in open air-bridges and the asymmetry of quarantine measures fixes the stopper on passenger travel for the near future.“The third unknown is the impact and size of consumer demand as ‘non-essential’ economies start to return from mid-June. Inventories will either have to react to high demand, thus causing a sharp, high-speed volume spike, or demand will slump in line with a recession, and cargo will move on slower transport modes (container, rail), or not at all.”last_img read more

first_img Keywords Investment strategiesCompanies CPP Investment Board Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) is “embracing disruption” and looking to cash in on emerging shifts in the global economy, such as a move towards autonomous cars and a growing, aging population.The board benefits from a long-term investment and can look beyond any market cycle and invest based on large structural changes that will “fundamentally change how we all work and live,” said CPPIB chief executive Mark Machin. Will exuberant market sentiment last? “We’ve been embracing disruption, whether that disruption is technological, whether it’s demographic, or economic, or climate-change related,” he said in a speech to the Canadian Club in Toronto on Tuesday.One structural change with widespread impact is technological change, he said, including artificial intelligence, the explosion in automation, the internet of things and the rise of fintech.“We have an obligation to analyze how these technologies will impact each sector,” he said. “How they’re going to disrupt industries, and how they’re going to impact our investments, both now and in the decades ahead.”He pointed to CPPIB investments in California-based autonomous vehicle company Zoox, which is aiming to have a fleet of robo-taxis ready by 2020. Another investment guided by disruptive forces, he said, is in a subsidiary of payment processing company Square Inc. called Square Capital, which invests in U.S. small business loans using machine learning to analyze vast amounts of data.Machin also cited an investment in Viking River Cruises, which has more than 60 cruise vessels on several rivers and oceans globally.“As the North American baby boomer generation ages, and retires, they have an increasing desire to travel and see the world,” he said.CPPIB also invested in ORPEA, a European provider of long-term care services with 800 facilities serving more than 82,000 people, he said.There is also opportunity in climate change disruption and CPPIB has invested in a joint venture with Votorantim Energia in Brazil operating wind parks, Machin said. As well, the board has roughly $3-billion invested in wind and solar projects in Canada with Cordelio Power and Enbridge.He also pointed a shift in the “economic centre of gravity” from North America and Europe to Asia, noting that roughly 8% of the board’s investment portfolio is in China.CPPIB’s best known investment is in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, back in 2011, said Machin.“We did that because we saw the rising power of consumption in the middle class in China, and also this rapid adoption of mobile technology… It’s proved to be a terrific investment, and we continue to add to our position.” Geographical diversification is harder to come by, report says East Asian woman young professional Kurhan/123RF Related news Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Canadian Press How to talk to clients about GameStop Facebook LinkedIn Twitterlast_img read more

first_imgRelatedWorld Water Day Commemoration for Rio Grande Valley FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail World Water Day will be commemorated on Wednesday March 22 through a number of activities scheduled for the Rio Grande Valley area of Portland, under the auspices of the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) in association with the Bowden Pen Farmers and Ginger House Environmental Groups.World Water Day emerged from the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNICED), in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.The day’s activities will be held under the theme ‘Water and Culture’ and will include an official ceremony at Ginger House to launch the day’s events; an exhibition at the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park, depicting the theme of the activities; a tree planting exercise at Fullers Park in Ginger House, and a mini tour of the communities of Ginger House, Bowden Pen and Mill Bank.In a JIS News interview, Environmental Coordinator at NEPA, Lisa Kirkland said the day’s activities were being planned to increase public awareness of the problems and challenges affecting the sources of water supply and its distribution system, as well as the impact of the provision of potable water on the health of the population.She informed that the activities were being organized out of the recognition that proper management of watershed areas was intrinsically linked to environmental practises. Mrs. Kirkland added that recent rainfall levels had highlighted the need to adopt disaster prevention preparedness and mitigation plans, particularly for watershed areas.The Environmental Coordinator noted that the Rio Grande Valley had been chosen as the venue for the activities because the theme fits appropriately with the characteristics of the area such as rafting, its rich cultural tradition and the wide range of biodiversity which it possesses.Mrs Kirkland said it was expected that the occasion would result in an enhancement of the efforts to properly organize their communities around issues of environmental preservation, and further improve their exemplary performance in the areas of environmental protection and watershed management.

first_imgNew Vehicles Bentley says it plans to ditch gasoline-powered cars by 2030by Alex Reid | November 5, 2020 See More Videos Luxury car brand Bentley Motors, owned by Germany’s Volkswagen, said in November its model range will be fully electric by 2030; and last month General Motors said it aimed to have a zero-emission lineup by 2035. JLR said it will keep all three of its British plants open as it electrifies its range. “It’s time to re-imagine the next chapter for both brands,” Chief Executive Thierry Bollore said. JLR said its electric plans for Jaguar would be centered at its Solihull plant, but dropped plans to build the XJ, the brand’s flagship full-size car, at its Castle Bromwich facility in central England.JLR said it will spend around 2.5 billion pounds (US$3.5 billion) annually on electrification technologies and the development of connected vehicle services. The company said it was also investing in developing hydrogen fuel cells in anticipation of a future shift to hydrogen to power vehicles.

Jaguar Land Rover’s luxury Jaguar brand will be entirely electric by 2025 and the carmaker will launch e-models of its entire lineup by 2030, it said on Monday, as it joined a global race to develop zero-emission vehicles.JLR, owned by India’s Tata Motors, said its Land Rover brand will launch six pure electric models over the next five years, with the first one coming in 2024.Known for its iconic, high-performance E-Type model in the 1960s and 1970s, Jaguar faces the same challenge as many other carmakers — making the transition to electric vehicles while retaining the feeling and power of a luxury combustion-engine model.

first_img Published: April 14, 2015 Audio ScriptWhat if President Abraham Lincoln had lived?April 15, 2015                       Peter Wood150 years ago today President Abraham Lincoln died from an assassin’s bullet and the question remains.If Lincoln had not been assassinated would he have been able to successfully reconstruct the South, reunite the country and prevent the Jim Crow laws that essentially replaced slavery in the South for another 100 years?It’s a difficult question to answer, says Peter Wood, a CU-Boulder history instructor and Civil War expert, because post-war America was a very divided and racist country and it would have been a difficult environment – even for Lincoln in which to make progress.CUT 1 “He would also have had to come to a much clearer understanding of the depth of white southern and white northern racism. (:09) We can hardly imagine how vitriolic and bitter and anti-negro the white southern die-hard planters were but also the entire Democratic Party – his main rivals – were adamant in not even supporting the 13th Amendment — that we should not have a constitutional amendment doing away with slavery.” (:32)Wood says Lincoln had the political savvy to do a much better job at reconstruction than his successor, Andrew Johnson. But, he says, to do so Lincoln would have had to convince the nation that to succeed he needed to empower the former slaves with land and defeat racism.CUT 2 “One extreme ideal possibility would be that his living out his second term would have been enough to both empower the slaves, provide them with land and property and defang the worst fascism of the old planter regime. (:22) Overcoming that, undoing all that, is tremendously hard.” (:27)Yet, Wood says, if modern day historians need one example to show that deep seated prejudicial views can transform, giving hope to the idea that maybe Lincoln could have helped shift racist beliefs in post-Civil War America, all they need to do is observe what is happening in America today.CUT 3 “Today we’re watching deep, age-old prejudices about homosexuality shift overnight in terms of public opinion. Within 10 years we’ve seen dramatic shifts. (:12) Now could you imagine that kind of rapid transition in the 10 years after the Civil War instead of the intransigence and backsliding? (:23) And then when you’re over the hump you can actually start to feel good about it. Everybody realizes it wasn’t as bad a transition as they feared it would be. “(:31)-CU- Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more
