Latest Newsletter

Cross Ocean Week 43 / October 22nd, 2019

Dear Members,

This is the last newsletter before Cross Ocean’s 2nd Global Conference which will be held at the Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit on the 8th & 9th of November which is just 17 days away. If you haven’t booked your hotel you should do so ASAP because the hotel where the event will take place is getting full. Our Chairman Bo together with myself and Heidi are looking forward to seeing you all there.

For those of you who arrive Bangkok in-time please join our informal welcome drinks at the hotel lobby bar from 20:00 to 21:00 on Thursday, the 7th of November.

For those who will join the conference directly on the 8th please be at the Junior Ballroom on the 3rd floor around 9am. Also note that we provide all schedules for attendees the morning at the time of your arrival, so there is nothing you need to do in advance, just make your way to the hotel and show up in the morning, fresh and ready for some quality networking.

In this week’s newsletter we are happy to announce two new members, one representing Morocco and another representing Indonesia. Also note the featured member this week Samskip. In member movements we see an airplane moved in Slovenia, a boat moved from Shanghai to Poti, Georgia, and a mass transit project for New York. Also note the fraud warning below.

The Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup


Trash accumulates in five ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health, and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.

The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of our systems is estimated to clean up 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch every five years.

CMA CGM IMO2020 Customer Letter

The new IMO 2020 Low Sulphur Regulation impacts the global shipping industry and shipping costs are set to increase worldwide. As the cost of the Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO) is expected to be significantly higher than the present High Sulphur Fuel Oil (HSFO), CMA CGM will implement a new price reference for its short-term and long-term contracts.

For short-term contracts of validity 3 months or shorter, please be informed that a new monthly charge – Low Sulphur Surcharge (LSS) – will be applied on top of CMA CGM’s ocean freight charges, effective 1 December 2019.

For long-term contracts of more than 3 months’ validity, please be advised that VLSFO will replace HSFO as the price reference for the quarterly Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF), effective 1 January 2020. The BAF is applied on top of the ocean freight charges and will still be revised on a quarterly basis with a one-month notice. Kindly note that the BAF quantum for reefer cargo will be 20% higher than that of dry cargo for the same container size, with a minimum of USD25/TEU.
