The peak season of air cargo – which according to some observers will be strong, is coming, indeed it is already here.

Several shippers interviewed by Loadstar said they were trying to secure hold for the upcoming winter season, and that they had seen some excitement especially with the approach of Chinese Golden Week. According to Flexport’s EMEA air shipping manager David Wystrach, the one underway may be the last “calm week before the storm”, while another anonymous operator said he has already seen an “increase in air freight rates”. , and this still without having observed the effect on demand of the launches of new technological products (for example Apple’s Watch and iPad, just presented).

Wystrach added that he believes that the next peak season will, however, be driven more by the shortage of hold (in particular the lack of belly capacity in many passenger flights) rather than by an increase in demand, “with the exception of products in route and the possible impact of the distribution of a vaccine “.

The connection is part of the operator’s Global flight operations program, which overall connects Beijing, Shanghai, Zhengzhou and Hong Kong to Chicago and Frankfurt ten times a week with full charter flights. Some freight forwarder had started this new type of service, which joins the Block Space Agreements it has with various airlines since the beginning of the year, with the outbreak of the pandemic.

The big Italian shipping players are also doing something similar, who for some days have been promoting the availability of cargo holdings they have purchased by hiring cargo planes mainly used with North America and China.

El tráfico alrededor del planeta se vio afectado por la emergencia del Coronavirus y ahora los números que cuantifican todo comienzan a reflejarse. Otros datos provienen del tráfico marítimo, en este caso del Canal de Panamá. En comparación con 2019, de hecho, hubo una caída del 3.2% de enero a abril, el peor resultado en los últimos 5 años. A pesar de esto, el volumen de carga transportada aumentó.

La disminución más fuerte en 5 años.

Las cifras publicadas por el Instituto Nacional de Estadísticas y Censo (INEC) de la Contraloría General de Panamá hablan de 4742 barcos que transitaron en los primeros cuatro meses de 2020 contra 4899 del mismo período de hace un año. La comparación de los períodos de referencia de los últimos años indica cómo en 2019 el tránsito creció un 0.3%, disminuyó un 1.5% en 2018 y aumentó un 5.5% en 2017.

Menos tránsito, pero más volumen

Paradójicamente, el volumen de carga transitado a través del canal ha aumentado: un buen 9% más que el año anterior, con un aumento en el tonelaje de 6.1 puntos porcentuales. Esta aparente contratendencia se debe a la combinación de barcos que cruzaron el canal de Panamá: los que corresponden al estándar de tonelaje Panamax, que pueden cruzar las  más antiguas, disminuyeron (-9.2%), a favor de una mayor cantidad de Neopanamax (+ 23.2%) que puede aprovechar las construidas después de 2016.
Al ser más buques de gran capacidad pertenecientes a la segunda categoría, terminaron afectando favorablemente las toneladas de carga almacenadas a pesar de la disminución general de los tránsitos.

Milan Malpensa reopen Terminal 1: from June 15 Terminal 2 closes, which has handled all flights for almost three months, and operations resume from the larger and more modern terminal. And you do it amidst a thousand safety precautions.The minimum threshold for reopening the T1 was three thousand daily passengers: Armando Brunini, CEO of Sea, had prudently indicated a date between June 15 and July 1, but the one for 15 was already circulating as a more realistic forecast, especially in light of the re-start of Easyjet, with several “domestic” flights (ie internal) to which they will gradually add the international ones.

How Milan Malpensa Terminal 1 reopens

Sea has already prepared all measures to prevent contagion risk. At this point he only expects the ENAC go-ahead, the National Civil Aviation Authority, but all are already ready for the effective reopening of Terminal 1. Accompanied, in parallel, by the Temporary “disposal” of T2, who from mid-March and for exactly three months took charge of managing all the (very few, at the beginning) remaining passengers.


The crisis caused by the spread of coronavirus is an opportunity for rail logistics.
Rail services between China and Europe are growing fast, with the reliability, speed and cost looking increasingly attractive in the face of blanked container shipping services and very high air freight rates.
The freight trains on the new Silk Road are well booked, said Patrick Merkel, managing director of 4PL Prologue Solutions.
Freight forwarders advise their customers to reserve capacities two weeks in advance.
Rail transport between China and Hamburg currently takes only 18 days, instead of 32 or more by sea transport.
Despite slightly increasing demand, the rates per container were relatively stable, added the company – on average, 50% cheaper than air freight.
And services are increasing. Russian Railways, SNCF Forwardis and Cosco Group launched a 20-day train service connecting Jiangxi with Paris.
The crisis caused by the spread of coronavirus is a problem, but it’s also an opportunity for rail logistics. It is already obvious to many that the railway is not just an alternative, but is the main mode of cargo transport in conditions where high speed, clarity and stability are required.

Supporting measures to rail and intermodal transport
A few days ago, the European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, Italian aid measures to support the shift of freight transport from road to rail in the area of the Port of Genoa. The goal is to encourage the use of rail transport and intermodal solutions in the context of serious disruptions to the local transport network, severely impacted by the collapse of the Morandi bridge in August 2018. The EU decision released an overall budget of Eur 9 million, in the form of subsidies to logistics companies and multimodal transport operators, which have been able to maintain or to increase the share of freight transported by rail from and to the Port of Genoa over the 15 months following the collapse of the bridge. Support will also be granted, to the concessionaire of rail services in the Port of Genoa to compensate the additional costs borne due to the infrastructural disruption over the same period. The Commission found that the aid is beneficial for the environment, as it supports rail transport and mobility, which is less polluting than road transport, while also decreasing road congestion. This is particularly important in this case due to the severe disruptions in traffic and connectivity experienced by the city of Genoa as a result of the collapse of the Morandi bridge in 2018. The Western Ligurian Sea Port Authority trusts that this decision can become a first step towards a stronger role of public bodies to encourage and to govern the development of a more sustainable transport service between the ports of Genoa and their hinterland.
