- Cyber attack on Maersk - On the 27th of June Maersk-Moller was hit by a large scale Cyber Attack which impacted on its global operations severely. With all of its email communication, telephones, bookings, quoting systems all down for an extended period of time. This hampered communication to and from the shipping giant for a number of days.
- Rate Increases - With shipping lines nearly at capacity and Hanjin collapsing (Asia-US Trade) shipping lines are now filling up. With lines at nearly Christmas freight levels they see this as the perfect time to claw back some lost money. First of July we saw rate increases out of all Chinese ports into New Zealand and Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Spain. We are expecting rate increase month on month until Christmas. The general trend has been down or rock bottom for the past 12-18 months but with the lines hemorrhaging money. Now they see a prime opportunity to get some of that lost money back (for example Hanjin were loosing $US100 per TEU).
