    Emirates SkyCargo completes five years of freighter operations to Ecuadorian capital Quito this December.

    The freight division of Emirates commenced its freighter operations to the Ecuadorian capital in December 2013 with a once a week service. And now with the growth in demand, the frequency has been increased. Currently, Emirates SkyCargo’s Boeing 777 freighter aircraft uplift cargo four times a week from Quito.

    Over the last five years, the carrier has been facilitating exports of Ecuadorian roses as well as other flowers and perishables through its Quito freighter service.

    Roses are one of the most popular export commodities from Ecuador and are renowned for their vibrant colour and long shelf life.

    Since December 2013, Emirates SkyCargo has helped transport over 50,000 tonnes of Ecuadorian exports from Quito. Fresh flowers including roses form the bulk of export commodities transported on the freighters. In 2017 alone, close to 12,500 tonnes of fresh flowers were flown from Quito to other parts of Emirates’ network in Europe, Middle East and Asia. High season for flower exports lasts between August and February but the peak demand for roses occurs in late January and early February in the run up to Valentine’s Day often requiring additional freighter capacity to be deployed to meet demand.

    More recently, Emirates SkyCargo has also helped promote the growth of exports of perishables such as mangoes and baby bananas from Ecuador to markets such as Germany, the Netherlands, Hong Kong and Singapore. With its global network of over 155 destinations Emirates SkyCargo facilitates the development of new export opportunities and makes an important contribution to the local economy in Ecuador where more than 100,000 people are dependent on the floriculture sector.

    With Emirates Fresh, the carrier’s three-tiered suite of specialised solutions, flowers and other perishables from Ecuador retain their freshness and longevity during their journey.

    SSA Marine’s Terminal 18 surpassed 1 million TEUs in yearly container volume last week, marking the first time in Washington state history that a single marine terminal handled a million TEUs in a year.

    Located in the North Harbor of The Northwest Seaport Alliance, the terminal is on track to top 1.1 million TEUs by the end of 2018.

    This year, terminal operator SSA Marine improved productivity in collaboration with ILWU Local 19 to begin continuous vessel operations, a manning agreement that staggers break schedules to handle more cargo per day. In April, it became the first terminal in Puget Sound to move 5,500 containers on and off a single vessel, averaging 30 crane moves per hour.

    Also this year, Terminal 18 invested in rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) to increase both reliability and productivity in handling containers. These investments and operational efficiencies played a role in attracting two new services this year (the AL5 and PNS) and an additional ocean carrier (SM Lines).

    Ultimately, the investments positioned the terminal to handle the record-setting cargo volume experienced during this year’s unusually busy peak season, according to NWSA.

    “To reach 1 million TEUs at a Puget Sound terminal for the first time is an enormous achievement and a testament to the value of working together under the banner of The Northwest Seaport Alliance,” Don Meyer, Port of Tacoma commission president and co-chair of the NWSA, said.

    SSA Marine, a subsidiary of Carrix, is the largest US-owned container terminal operator, handling approximately 22 million container TEUs per year at its marine and rail terminal operations.

    NWSA is a marine cargo operating partnership of the ports of Seattle and Tacoma. Combined, the ports are the fourth-largest container gateway in North America.

    Demand remains strong across Asia Pacific as airlines fly into the peak season, with freight tonne kilometres (FTK) increasing 5.6 per cent in October, according to the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA).

    FTKs hit 6.5 billion in October helped by increasing orders going into the peak season, though capacity in available FTK (AFTK) was up 7.3 per cent, pushing load factors down 1.1 percentage points to 65.5 per cent.

    For the first 10 months of 2018, FTKs were up 4.8 per cent to 60.4 billion while AFTKs increased by 6.8 per cent to 95.6 billion, with load factors falling 1.2 percentage points to 63.2 per cent.

    AAPA director general, Andrew Herdman says: “The global economy continued to expand moving into the fourth quarter, with further strengthening of global services activity but somewhat slower expansion in the global manufacturing sectors. Together with improvements in connectivity, these factors supported the continued growth in air traffic demand for Asian carriers.”

    Looking ahead, Herdman says: “Prospects for further growth in air travel demand and air cargo markets remain positive. Geopolitical risks and uncertainty over unresolved trade tensions are a concern, but consumer confidence levels remain relatively robust.”

    Terminal operating company QTerminals has received an approval to design, develop and operate Phase II of Hamad Port, the company said in a tweet.

    This includes the development of the second container terminal at the port.

    Earlier this month, Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti, Qatari Minister of Transport and Communications, said the second phase is expected to be launched by early 2019. He added that, in terms of equipment, operation and clearance, the current phase has been completed.

    In its first phase, the port is capable of handling 2 million TEUs annually, which is scheduled to rise to 7.5 million TEUs upon scheduled completion in 2020.

    QTerminals recently reached major milestones by handling 2 million TEU and 5 million tons of general cargo by the end of October 2018, three times more compared to June 2017.

    According to the company, the surge in volumes was achieved in record time with operations at the port only starting as of October 2016.

    QTerminals is a company set up by Qatar Navigation (Milaha) and Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani Qatar) to provide the container, general cargo, RORO, livestock and offshore supply services in Phase I of Hamad Port.

    Budapest Airport (BUD) processed a record volume of cargo in October as it targets further increases.

    The Hungarian hub handled a total of 13,313 tonnes of airfreight last month (trucked and flown), a 22.9% year on year increase and its largest figure ever for the month of October.

    The airport has welcomed new freighter services from AirBridgeCargo and Silk Way West Airlines this year.

    The period from January 2018 to October 2018 saw a 16.3% year-to-year increase in air cargo to a total of 120,603 tonnes, meaning it has already beaten last year's record performance.

    Said René Droese, executive director property and cargo at Budapest Airport said: "Airfreight volumes at BUD continue to grow at an impressive rate, and we will soon be reaching yet another milestone as our 12 months’ volume, currently at 144,017 tonnes, approaches an unprecedented 150,000 tonnes.

    “This growth proves how vital our new Cargo City development will be in order to continue coping with increased demand from carriers around the world, and we are excited about the new capabilities this new facility will bring when it opens in the fourth quarter of 2019."

    Earlier this year, Budapest Airport launched the €32.6m Cargo City, which includes a 20,000 sq m cargo handling facility and dedicated freighter stands, as part of the BUD:2020 programme. Construction began in September.

    The development is being set up with the aim of centralising cargo operations at the Hungarian hub and expanding the airport’s handling capacity.

    In 2017, the airport opened two state-of-the art express facilities to supply increasing volumes from the express and e-commerce business.
