IMO 2020:
The Low-Sulfur Mandate Is Upon Us

Location: Espana Ballroom I

By the fourth quarter of 2019, and maybe even as TPM Asia begins, many vessels deployed by the container shipping lines will be using low-sulfur bunker fuel. Even though the IMO 2020 regulation will only be enforced from Jan. 1, 2020, carriers will have to ensure their bunker supply chain is in place and begin testing availability well in advance of the deadline. But low-sulfur fuel costs more than $100 per ton more than the bunkers currently being used, and if availability can’t match demand, there is a fear that prices will rise even further. This panel will look at availability of low-sulfur fuel, the different blends, and the blend likely to be adopted by the majority of carriers, as that will have a bearing on price.

Ocean carrier schedule reliability on the trans-Pacific and Asia-Europe trades fell to its worst level in 10 years in 2018, and while it has improved this year, the level is still far from satisfactory. While shippers are frustrated with delays caused by poor on-time performance, a key and consistent complaint remains the lack of timely communication from carriers that cargo has been delayed. With little visibility over their containers, shippers have to rely on information supplied by carriers that typically comes too late to act upon. So what can carriers and cargo owners do to address these performance challenges? Is it physically possible to achieve complete reliability on the trans-Pacific and Asia-Europe trades, and, if so, how? Is it as simple as announcing more realistic transit times? What changes are needed in shipper supply chain behavior to support improvements in reliability?

Container shipping companies, ports, freight forwarders, and other supply chain stakeholders increasingly are looking to create value by controlling data within an integrated network and blockchain initiatives. Mediterranean Shipping Co. and CMA CGM have joined Maersk in its TradeLens blockchain and visibility joint venture with IBM, alleviating fears that the project would not extend to the wider container shipping industry, while CMA CGM, Cosco Shipping, Cosco Shipping Ports, Hapag-Lloyd, Hutchison Ports, OOCL, the Port of Qingdao, PSA International, and Shanghai International Port Group have signed up with the Global Shipping Business Network. More carriers are investing in smart containers from Traxens, and most of the world’s global carriers are now members of the Digital Container Shipping Association, a group tasked with creating container data standards for track-and-trace systems. Meanwhile, Rotterdam is among a growing list of ports and terminal operators looking to create efficiencies that alleviate black holes in information between ocean and landside operations that can increase costs for customers. This session will analyze the goals, objectives, and what beneficial cargo owners stand to gain from the digital movement.
