Compared with the global container ship carbon emissions reduction of more than

Figure: liner fleet industry in the past two years restructuring the mode of operation, each box on average significantly improved environmental benefits

Ta Kung Pao, December 21, the UK freight market information consulting firm MDS Transmodal recent research report published in London, despite the global container ship carbon emissions are still increasing, but the standard containers per year of carbon dioxide emissions by 1.41 tons, or per standard Box miles 278 grams, compared with 2006 decreased by more than 25%, reflecting the financial crisis and slowdown of large container ships dual factors, the liner shipping industry is trying to reduce environmental pollution. Baltic Council (BIMCO) development of the report also pointed out that gear and custom-made liner ship is becoming a trend, a new generation of container vessels will be equipped with more low-speed host, the goods will be more concentrated in a small number of hub ports deal, the industry will help promote environmental development.

International shipping giant AP Moller Maersk Group earlier ─ representing the global transportation industry, in Mexico at the United Nations climate change conference speech, said representatives of the participating countries should be affixed on the packaging of consumer goods to promote the show in the logistics supply chain carbon emissions. " green label "to show that the industry intends to promote an environmentally friendly way of operation gradually, and as soon as possible to show results.

After the financial tsunami, the global container shipping capacity is re-growth. MDS reported that this year's global container shipping volume reached 127 million TEUs is expected to involve 644 billion TEUs sea container shipping volume in 2006 compared 102 million TEUs, involving 515 000 000 000 TEUs sea went up 24.5% and 25%, liner industry overall carbon dioxide emissions are still growing them.

However, due to the different base traffic, general calculation of the total number of carbon emissions within the line is difficult to accurately assess the industry in promoting environmental protection measures. This in conjunction with another MDS British liner market consulting firm Box Trade Intelligence, introduced and each standard container TEUs per mile is calculated by carbon emissions, expected to reflect more deeply on the delivery of environmental protection measures during each TEU the real impact.

Report the results of that this year every standard container liner industry average carbon emissions have fallen to 1.41 tons, compared with 1.9 tons in 2006 decreased 25.8%. Emissions per TEU mile 278 grams, 372 grams over 06 years decreased by 25.3%. MDS executive director of Garland rule that the two indicators to improve the main reasons is due to liner deceleration and more large ships into the market two factors.

Greatly reduced the use of low-speed boat fuel

During the financial tsunami sweeping the world last year, a number of shipping lines are due to inadequate and should be held in the volume of excess capacity within the conflict situation, and the implementation of deceleration mode of operation. Container liner shipping company will slow down by half to one-third, and try to keep the ship transferred to additional flights in order to digest the extra ships, and reduce fuel consumption and. In addition, more shipping lines to deliver a large ship, so every standard container liner companies significantly reduce the cost of fuel, will help suppress the growth of carbon emissions.

MDS, the report noted, from 2006 to this year, demand for container shipping route between Asia and Europe are up about 24%, but has not followed the carbon emissions soaring, but decreased by 24%, Asia-Europe line is based on a large liner company Ships slow down the implementation of policy priorities route, so the industry can achieve great progress.

BIMCO is in a separate market report said, as with the other ship, container ship owners and operators are subject to market changes and external pressure from environmental considerations, that the industry should present less fuel consumption mode of operation when long-term rule. The report stated: "Based on environmental considerations should become a routine liner deceleration, so that a new generation of container ships with more low-speed host and low speed operation of navigation."

Asia-Europe line carbon emissions 24%

The Association also said that more major liner companies are receiving more than 10,000 TEUs of new container ships, more industry-leading unprecedented plan to buy capacity in the short term more than 16,000 cases of container ships, even though that shipping companies to reduce ship or voyage, However, in economies of scale, each TEUs will reduce operating costs, carbon emissions will be reduced.

The report notes that reducing the voyage is not a major problem, because now there is a trend linked with the main shipping route more focused hub port, then the goods will be small feeder container vessels spread to a nearby area, this would become the industry's existing mode of operation. This will be known around the ports now have greater pressure to upgrade the processing capacity to cope with the needs of the operation of large ships.
