Arrested IRISL ships in limbo

Arrested IRISL ships in limbo

Singapore: It's a bumper week of exclusives for Issue 37 of Seatrade Asia Week. On the front there's reports of a postponed court sale of three IRISL containerships in Singapore, which has created a diplomatic fracas. Inside, we catch up with fast emerging Hainan PO Shipping, a liner with eyes on the Europe trades. Saturday saw the conclusion of the UN environment talks in Cancun. Shipping was let off the hook at the last moment of negotiations. We highlight the countries that managed to get the text regarding aviation and shipping scrubbed from the official communiqué at the last moment. In China, shippers have reacted furiously to a series of fee increases effective January 1 from the world's largest boxline, Maersk Line.
No other shipping title has invested in such a wide, expert network of Asian correspondents. Seatrade Asia Week comes out 50 times a year and is priced at just $300 a year. To subscribe or for a free trial contact [email protected]  [17/12/10]
