COSCO Shipping banks on new Atlantic route for growth
22 May 2019
China Daily

A vessel fully loaded with paper pulp left Punta Pereira Uruguay in South America and headed for its destination in Western Europe in the beginning of 2019, marking COSCO Shipping's first regular service in the Atlantic Ocean.

Since officially launching the Tramp-Liner service in the Atlantic by M.V. Tian You, which arrived in the Port of Flushing in the Netherlands and Port of Brake in Germany in February, COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers Co Ltd will make monthly voyages with about 270,000 metric tons of pulp in 2019, according to Chen Feng, general director of marketing and sales, COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers.

Atlantic routes play a major role in global shipping as about three-fifths of global ports are scattered along the Atlantic Ocean, accounting for two-thirds of the international trade and for three-fifths of the throughput, said Chen.

Major cities in Europe and the United States are located on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and more than 4,000 vessels sail on the North Atlantic route every day, which makes the region extremely important for global shipping enterprises.

"COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers used to serve Chinese customers in the past, and we expect the tramp-liner services to facilitate our efforts in going global and winning clients beyond Chinese borders," said Chen.

The new route is driven by solid market demand for paper pulp from South America to Europe and the Mediterranean region, and shipping demand within this region is increasing. COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers is already expanding its capacity from its existing five vessels as a dozen such vessels are under construction, added Chen.

COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers is a Shanghai-listed company under China COSCO Shipping Corp Ltd. It operates more than 120 vessels including 41 multipurpose vessels, 24 heavy lift vessels, 11 logs carriers, 14 asphalt carriers, seven semi-submersible vessels, as well as seven car carriers. Currently, its ships carry cargo to more than 1,500 ports in more than 160 countries and regions across the world, according to Weng Jiqiang, the company's deputy general manager.

China's busiest port sees 5.5 pct cargo throughput growth in H1
Excerpt

HANGZHOU, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Ningbo Zhoushan port, China's busiest port, saw cargo throughput rise 5.5 percent year on year to 557.96 million tonnes in the first half of 2019.

Meanwhile, the container throughput at the port in eastern China's Zhejiang Province reached 13.91 million standard containers in the January-June period, up 4.7 percent year on year, according to statistics from the Ministry of Transport.

The port's cargo throughput ranked first in the country while its container throughput ranked second only after the Shanghai port.

The Ningbo Zhoushan Port Group, the operator of the port, said the port has been accelerating smart port construction to improve efficiency and tapping the inland market to boost business this year when facing unstable economic and trade conditions.

With the help of rail-sea transit services, the port's business covers 48 prefecture-level cities in 15 provincical regions. In the six months, the rail-sea transit services handled 386,000 standard containers, up 46.7 percent year on year.

The port has embraced the Belt and Road Initiative by optimizing shipping routes to related regions. The Belt and Road regions contributed to over 40 percent of its container throughput, with the container throughput from Southeast Asia and the Mediterranean routes in the first half rising 41 percent and 15.8 percent, respectively.

In 2018, the Ningbo Zhoushan Port, a major port that links the Yangtze River Economic Belt with the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, handled over 1 billion tonnes of cargo for a second straight year, becoming the only one in the world to exceed the 1-billion-tonne level.

The CMA CGM Group, a leading worldwide shipping and logistics group, announced the launching of the world's largest container ship powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Shanghai, on September 25. The ship, named after the French company's founder Jacques Saade, is the flagship of a new fleet of nine ultra-large LNG-powered container ships which are designed to carry up to 23,000 standard 20-foot shipping containers. CMA CGM first commissioned China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC) to build the nine ships in November 2017, and in March 2019, the French liner giant ordered 10 more container ships from CSSC during Chinese President Xi Jinping's state visit to France. Half of the new ships will be fitted with scrubbers and five will be fueled by LNG.

Steel Cut for the First Chinese-Built Cruise Ship

By John Stansfield , October 20, 2019
https://www.cruisemapper.com/news/62...lt-cruise-ship

On Friday, October 18, CSSC's Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding got underway on a project to build the first fully China-made cruise ship (TBN). The contract between CSSC and Carnival Corporation was signed in February 2017, and following 2 years and a reported USD 260 million in shipyard upgrades, work is currently underway.

The first unit is due for delivery in 4-years' time, with the 2nd following the year after. Each vessel is priced at USD 770 million - or ~20% cheaper than the cost of the biggest cruise liners constructed in Europe.

Once complete, the new vessels will be operated under the joint venture company CSSC Carnival Cruise Shipping Ltd. The new brand starts operations in 2019 with the purchase of 2 midsized vessels from Carnival Corporatio's subsidiary Costa Group - Costa Atlantica (transferred in 2019-Q4) and Costa Mediterranea (transferred in 2020-Q4).


https://www.guancha.cn/industry-scie...8_521824.shtml
this large cruise ship is about 135,500 ton , and can accommodate up to 5,246 passengers. It is scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2023.
