Scientists Wary About Environmental Effects Of Canal-Building Project In Nicaragua

The project is estimated to be completed by 2019, and around 5,100 ships may pass via the canal each year. (Photo : Rice University) Scientists are concerned about the environmental impact of the building of the Nicaragua Canal. The Nicaragua Interoceanic Grand Canal project aims to connect the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. The construction of the canal entails cutting through Lake Cocibolca, also known as Lake Nicaragua, which is Central America's key freshwater reservoir and also the biggest tropical freshwater lake found in North and South America. The canal project is expected to be completed by 2019 and create a new shipping route via Nicaragua.

Around 30,000 people in the region will have to be re-allocated to carve out the route for the canal's construction. There could be an impact on the lake due to accidental and incidental spillage caused by the passing of ships.

Does a Bill of Lading override a Sales Contract..?? I received below question from one of the readers of this blog via the Question form on the sidebar.. We are new to the export business. We plan to use FCA Incoterms in the agreement between our company and our overseas customer. However, we are concerned about liability we would have as being named shipper on the BL.My question is : Which is the overriding or superior contract, the BL or the Sales Agreement with Incoterms? Basically what Michael wants to know is, if a container is shipped on FCA basis and his company (seller) is shown as the shipper on the bill of lading and something happens to the shipment, will his company be at risk..??

Container shipping schedule reliability on the three main east-west trade lanes fell to a record low of 48.6% in January, according to Drewry’s latest Carrier Performance Insight report, as US west coast port congestion and the bedding in of new alliance services took their toll on vessel on-time performance levels.

Shippers "shortchanged" as more than half of all box sailings arrive late

Simon Heaney, senior manager of supply chain research at Drewry, said the analyst had anticipated some decline in reliability in view of the new alliance formations and the impact of port congestion on the US west coast but added that the extent of the decline – more than 9% worse than in December – “is particularly disappointing”. Notwithstanding the disruption on the transpacific, which saw schedule reliability dip to just 36%, Drewry’s analysis of 7,697 Asia-Europe voyages in January revealed a 10 percentage-point slump in schedule integrity to 54% – its worst performance since August of last year.
