RE: Shipping news
A normal train is only able to carry about 300 teu of containers (no more than a feeder container load). It is just that trains are faster to reach their destination than ships.

So all in all, box containerships will still be the mainstay.

One bad thing about shipping is the opening of the new panama canal. It enables larger containership to pass through cutting their journey time. This results in more container ship capacity without adding new builds to the system

The upward surge of bulk carrier prices in the past six months continues and was highlighted this week by the steep price increase obtained by Eastern Pacific Shipping (Idan Ofer group) from the sale of an eight year old Korean built Capesize bulk carrier. They purchased the M/V "MOUNT MERU" (179,147 DWT/Built 2009 at Hyundai in Korea) in November 2016 from the Hanjin Shipping creditor Korean Development Bank for about $18.75 mill. and have reportedly flipped the vessel to the investor group Songa Bulk of Norway for just below $28 mill.! Songa Bulk was launched in August 2016 and has now purchased 10 vessels, spending about $170 mill. They are now fully invested, and it is expected that they will take on some debt to continue their fleet expansion.
