From FORCE Bali is waiting for us ! Everything is ready for the 39th Annual General Meeting and we can’t wait to meet you all. please take note about a few tips regarding the dress code required for the events: all social events (welcome cocktail, informal dinner, sunday excursion) require casual clothes, casual business is required for your gala dinner (remind it will be on the sand!) From the World The London-based maritime consultancy Drewry has released its latest publication, the ‘Container Forecaster’, which provides some reason for optimism. It includes Drewry’s forecasts for world and regional container port handling and the containership fleet, and how they will combine to affect freight rates and carrier profitability through 2019. The outlook for the container shipping market in 2018 and 2019 is a combination of healthy demand growth that will outpace increases in the fleet. The effects are positive, because higher demand will result in a better supply-demand balance, and in slightly higher freight rates and profits for carriers. “The bad news for carriers,” according to Simon Heaney, Drewry senior container research manager, “is that, at least for the foreseeable future, they are unlikely to experience the very strong demand growth of early 2017. The good news is that while port handling growth may have peaked, they can still expect more than adequate volumes for at least the next two years.” www.drewry.co.uk Geneva – The International Air Transport Association (IATA) released demand growth results for global air freight markets for February 2018 showing a 6.8% increase in demand measured in freight tonne kilometers (FTKs) compared to the same period last year. Adjusting for the potential Lunar New Year distortions by combining growth in January 2018 and February 2018, demand increased by 7.7%. This was the strongest start to a year since 2015. Freight capacity, measured in available freight tonne kilometers (AFTKs), grew by 5.6% year-on-year in February 2018. Demand growth outstripped capacity growth for the 19th month in a row which is positive for airline yields and the industry’s financial performance. The continued growth in air cargo demand is consistent with ongoing robust global trade flows. There are, however, signs that the best of the upturn for air freight has passed. Demand drivers for air cargo are moving away from the highly supportive levels seen last year. In recent months the Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) for manufacturing and export orders has softened in a number of key exporting nations including Germany, China and the US. And the seasonally adjusted demand for air cargo which rose at a double-digit annualized rate for much of 2017 is now trending at 3%. “Demand for air cargo continues to be strong with 6.8% growth in February. The positive outlook for the rest of 2018, however, faces some potentially strong headwinds, including escalation of protectionist measures into a full-blown trade war. Prosperity grows when borders are open to people and to trade, and we are all held back when they are not,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.   NEXT EVENTS 28 April – 1 May 2018 – FORCE Annual General Meeting Bali, Indonesia 26 – 29 September 2018 – FIATA WORLD Congress – New Delhi, India
