Rickmers-Linie adds Bilbao to roster of regular calls

first_imgManuel Torres, line manager at E Erhardt y Cia, agents of Rickmers-Linie in Spain, is delighted to have this regular call: “The Port of Bilbao is one of Spain’s most important ports for breakbulk and heavylift cargo. There is a lot of traffic, both import and export, which we believe we can attract to the Rickmers-Linie service now that we have this regular call.”To test the strength of the market, Rickmers-Linie has already madeseveral calls recently, mostly on an inducement basis.Inbound cargoes have included steel plates from Asia and granite blocks from India while export cargoes have largely been machinery and similar products.Rickmers-Linie says that the decision to make regular scheduled calls into Bilbao has been prompted by a major contract to ship high-speed trains built by Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF) from Bilbao to Dammam in Saudi Arabia. The contact was signed with the global forwarder Geodis, which is responsible for the overall logistics management of this project.The trains are being supplied by CAF to the Saudi Railways Organisation and will be used by the Saudi Railway Company (SAR) on a new high-speed passenger service between Riyadh and Al-Haditha.It is anticipated that the regular monthly calls in Bilbao will be provided through the upgrading of Rickmers-Linie’s Europe – Middle East/India service although Rickmers’ eastbound Round-the-World Pearl String service will continue to make calls on inducement.The Pearl String’s Rickmers Hamburg called Bilbao in early October to lift a six-car high-speed train set comprising a 21.12 m long diesel-electric power car, four 25 m long carriages and a 25.96 m long driving trailer for Dammam under the contract with Geodis. The power car weighed 95 tonnes while the carriages and driving trailer weighed just under 60 tonnes each.According to Erhardt’s Torres, Rickmers-Linie has the ability to make three calls a month in the Spanish port.As announced in May this year, Rickmers-Linie is upgrading its Indian service with the addition of new vessels. It will also provide a direct service both east and westbound between Europe and India although calls in Pakistan and the Middle East will be possible on an inducement basis. The base ports served are Hamburg, Antwerp, Genoa, Mumbai and Chennai.Three new vessels are already operating in this service while a fourth and a fifth are due shortly. Linde and Martin have been longterm chartered by the line while Rickmers Yokohama is the third new vessel in service. Her sistership Rickmers Tianjin was delivered from the Xinshun Shipyard Group in China at the end of September.The fifth vessel is Baltic Winter, a 19,100 dwt multipurpose heavy-lift vessel with 800 tonne lifting capacity, which was delivered from the Qingshan shipyard in late September 2011. This vessel is now on a six-month charter to Rickmers-Linie. Both Rickmers Tianjin and Baltic Winter are now en route to Europe via India to be phased into the Europe – Middle East/India service.Built in 2005, Linde and Martin are 12,800 dwt vessels each equipped with two 120-tonne capacity cranes that can be twinned to lift 240 tonnes. Rickmers Yokohama and Rickmers Tianjin are 17,000 dwt vessels each equippedwith two 150-tonne cranes and an 80-tonne crane. This enables them to lift up to 300 tonnes by twinning the two larger cranes.”In early October, Rickmers Hamburg loaded a six-unit high-speed train set in Bilbao for the Saudi Arabian port of Dammam.” Photo: Erhardtlast_img read more

What Fantasy Football Players to Buy and Sell 1/3 Into the 2015 Season

first_imgWe are now at the 1/3 of the way mark on the season and people are starting to look to make trades. Right now you are probably in one of these modesA. You are dominating and playing in a league with a bunch of people who know nothing about footballB. You’ve gotten some favorable matchups and are sitting goodC. You’ve got a good team but your team has disappointed you some weeksD. You’re just a middle of the road kind of teamE. Injuries have killed your team and playoff dreamsF. You just don’t care anymore. Is it basketball or hockey season yet?So why is now a good time to start looking to make some trades? First, we are far enough into the season that we have somewhat of an idea what most of these guys that switched teams, systems, rookies, etc. will do. Second, you usually drafted guys for a reason but if it’s not working out you can move on. Third, injuries may have really changed the way your team looks. Finally, you need to start winning and win now. So what are you looking for when you’re trying to swing a trade? From the buyer’s side you are looking for two things. The first is to buy guys that may have been under the radar and have been hot and you think will stay that way. The second is guys that have struggled maybe due to injuries around them or just had some rust and you feel you can get them for lower now than the beginning of the year. From the seller’s side of things, you are also looking at two things. The main one is selling guys that are hot right now and cashing in on a guy who will be more consistent down the line and upgrading his value while you can. The other is trading away a guy you want nothing to do with, and is much harder to do because likely nobody else wants him either. The next topic is what to consider when making a trade. The main one is probably schedule. A team that plays in a favorable division like the AFC South, should get an extra bump up compared to someone playing in say the AFC East. I’ve been a big fan of playing matchups more than the better player if they are pretty close in value. Next, is team depth and needs. If you got a team with five running backs on the roster, and are weak at another position, why not swing a back for a receiver.

You can follow Matt on Twitter HERE. Browns fans who were livid when it was announced the team might have interest in now former head coach Adam Gase settle down – he’s not even going to get an interview.The thought of Gase coming to coach the Browns was a stretch at best, as he already had a rough history with popular Browns (and former Miami) wide out Jarvis Landry.Gase does have a relationship with Peyton Manning, which due to Peyton’s relationship with Browns owner Jimmy Haslam made it a thought he would get at least an interview. The Browns did have interest in Gase a few years back, but at that time he declined an interview request with the team. Gase is still a hot name in the coaching ranks, and is set to interview with the Cardinals tomorrow and has two other interviews lined up as of now.
