(7.11.2016) This year´s EISBEIN was a great success again. More than 4.600 shipping people from all over the world attended in the well-known gathering. Once again, thank you to all guests and sponsors, but a special thank you goes to our friends from the UAE. It was great honor to have you here in Hamburg.  See you again next year at the EISBEIN 2017.

(7.9.2016) Das 68. Eisbeinessen findet am Freitag, 4. November 2016 um 18:30 Uhr im Congress Centrum Hamburg statt. Am Eisbeinessen können ausschließlich Mitglieder der VHSS und deren Gäste teilnehmen. Jeder Gast zahlt ein pauschales Eintrittsgeld. Darin enthalten: Das bestellte Essen (Eisbein oder Kassler inkl. Beilagen, alle Getränke lt. Getränkekarte und Kaffee nach dem Essen an verschiedenen Kaffeebars) sowie Garderobe. Alle Getränke laut Getränkekarte sind von 18.00 bis 2.00 Uhr frei. Ein Infoblatt mit den Details zum Ablauf und zur Essensbestellung wird den Mitgliedsfirmen Ende August 2016 zugeschickt und kann gerne per Mail angefordert werden: info@schiffsmakler.de

Um die Verbundenheit der hiesigen Schiffsmakler und Schiffsagenten mit den Kunden sowie Kollegen in Übersee besser darzustellen, nominiert der Vorstand der Vereinigung Hamburger Schiffsmakler und Schiffsagenten e.V. seit 2003 ein Partnerland.

Es freut uns sehr, dass in Absprache mit unseren Kollegen von der DUBAI SHIPPING AGENTS ASSOCIATION (www.dubaisaa.ae) das diesjährige Partnerland die Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate sein werden. Damit sollen die enge Zusammenarbeit und die wachsenden Handelsbeziehungen zwischen den Emiraten und dem Hamburger Hafen unterstrichen werden.  Im Zuge der letzten Jahre sind die wirtschaftlichen und kulturellen Beziehungen zwischen den Vereinigten Arabischen Emiraten und dem Hafen Hamburg stetig gewachsen. In der Folge entwickelte sich der Güterverkehr zwischen Hamburg und den VAE positiv (+14%). Die VAE stehen nunmehr mit 114.000 TEU auf Platz 11 der wichtigsten Hafenkunden (2015: Rang 13).

Am Vorabend des Eisbeinessens, am Donnerstag, 3. November 2016 lädt der Senat der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg alle Mitgliedsfirmen und deren Gäste zu einem Senatsempfang in das Hamburger Rathaus ein.

Sie haben die Möglichkeit, anlässlich des Eisbeinessens verschiedene Werbemöglichkeiten zu buchen. Wir senden Ihnen auf Anfrage gerne eine Liste der Möglichkeiten zu.

In diesem Jahr wurde BTL Services zum Partner der VHSS für das 68. Eisbeinessen 2016 bestellt. BTL wird die Vermarktung der Werbeanzeigen und Sponsoring-Möglichkeiten, die Hotel- und Travelmanagementleistungen sowie das Catering für den Senatsempfang übernehmen.

(2.12.16) The New ConTex dropped a further point this week and is now down about 15 pct compared to the same time last year. Regretfully the overhang of large idle tonnage is much higher compared to last December.

The charter market remains weak in all segments with only limited business opportunities and the majority for shorter periods. Activity in the 4,250 TEU segment has been marginally increasing however without any positive influence on the charter rates.

Following a large number of demolitions the index moved slightly upwards for the craned 2,500 TEU segment and the market East of Suez appear short of tonnage with a potential firming in charter rates possible. The gearless 2,700 TEU segment may face a similar scenario whereas new demand is lacking for the feeders between 1,100 and 1,700 TEU.

Please find below today's New ConTex charter rate assessment, based on periods of 12 months:

Type 1100 GRD: USD 6.146 (-26)
Type 1700 GRD: USD 6.508 (-24)
Type 2500 GRD: USD 5.592 (5)
Type 2700 GLS: USD 5.998 (1)
Type 3500 GLS: USD 5.361 (-19)
Type 4250 GLS: USD 4.233 (-11)

(18.11.16) This week was once again a representative depiction of a rather weak charter market. Namely, marginally worse or worse. We are in the middle of November getting closer to Christmas and New Year (two traditionally quiet periods) and in terms of market activity it still feels like August. For most of the charterers 2016 is over and they are now focusing on the new challenges that 2017 will bring. This means less new fixtures (with flexible or very short periods) and some extensions. This, in turn, is reflected in the daily rates of this week's New ConTex. All segments appear to perform poorly. With the exception of 1100 TEU and 4250 TEU vessels the decrease in the other segments is marginal. The -1.6% change for the 4250 TEU vessels is no surprise as the oversupply is still evident, regardless some confirmed lay ups and demolitions. But the -2% change for 1100 TEU vessels might be an indication of oversupply building up for this traditionally strong sector. And the fact that we are in the last weeks of 2016 with an evidently weak demand does not help to build up a well needed sense of optimism. For what it's worth, the 2700 TEU segment is fighting hard (but quite successfully) to maintain the rates with still a 6 in front (or low 6s depending on the design). But based on the very low rates that bigger vessels are earning should one fear that the Lines will decide to upsize from 2700 to bigger (in some cases more modern) and cheaper Panamaxes. Only time will tell. However, one could guess that the oversupply of bigger and cheaper tonnage could in some cases affect the very few relatively decent earning segments. Hence, a weaker New ConTex.          

(11.11.16) The Eisbein week has passed, but unfortunately the fixing activity did not really increase. There is hardly any new business available within the various segments. The fixtures being done are mainly related to the present standard procedure of the Charterers, i.e. tendering redelivery notices. Same can be tendered by Charterers at any time thanks to the very flexible periods and short notices Owners have to "swallow" all the time. After tendering the notice Owners are being given the chance to extend for another flexible period at even lower money.
All in all it must be a paradise for Charterers respectively their Chartering departments as they are receiving all the flexibility they could wish for and take advantage of the continuously decreasing market. Owners would hope that Charterers will finally start not to only concentrate on cutting costs (internal+external) but on increasing their income. Despite the ongoing scrapping activity it seems however that the charter market will remain for some more time a self-service outlet for Charterers.
This is also reflected in this week New ConTex with a negative change throughout all size segments. The biggest 'losers' have of course been the heavily oversupplied segment of the Baby Panamaxes with -0.9% and the cooling down of the smaller 1,100TEU segment by -0.8%. Only the 2,700TEU segment with -0.2% and the 3,500TEU segment with -0.3% could almost defend their last weeks numbers. The big question remains on how low the market can get and at what level it simply does not make sense any more for the competing Owners and banks to run their vessels
