Poštovane kolege ,
već sam vam se obratio u e-mailu koji odslikava situaciju koja, bar po mojem i
misljenju kolega koji zaista nastoje da Udruzenje ostane i opstane, bez obzira na
sve probleme sa kojima se susreće.
Iz navedenih razloga ove godine neće biti održano tradicionalno okupljanje koje se godinama održava, ali se nadam da će iz ove (samo)kritike, proisteći energija i
želja da se već od sledeće godine osnovne funkcije Udruzenja ne dovedu u pitanje.
Uz zelju da vas sve zajedno, bez obzira da li bili na moru ili sa svojim porodicama ,
dan Udruženja , a takodje i svi praznici koji slijede , nadju u dobrom zdravlju kako vas
tako i vaših najbližih i da vam to bude podstrek za uspjeh i napredak u svim poljima
rada i afirmacije kao što je to bilo i sa svim prethodnim generacijama koje su nam
u baštinu ostavile nemjerljivo materijalno, a prevashodno kulturno blago.

Predsjednik UPKCG
Kap. Mario Pilastro

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), a global trade association for shipowners, says that a unilateral decision by the European Union to incorporate international shipping into its regional Emissions Trading System (ETS) will polarise and impede current discussions on additional CO2 reduction measures at the UN International Maritime Organization (IMO).

“Non-EU nations will be disappointed and very concerned by yesterday’s vote in the European Parliament Environment Committee following IMO’s adoption just a few weeks ago of a comprehensive road map for action,” said ICS Director of Policy and External Relations, Simon Bennett.

“But we hope that EU governments and the European Commission will see sense and recognise that threats to their trading partners will not serve the development of the global solution which both they and the shipping industry want and need.”

Bennett continued: “ICS is confident that IMO Member States, most of which are developing nations, will adopt a CO2 reduction strategy in 2018 that will include ambitious CO2 reduction goals and the development of a mechanism for delivery. But threats of EU unilateral action will do nothing to help this complex process.”

ICS says that emissions trading, which has been developed primarily for industries such as power generation and cement and steel production, is completely inappropriate for international shipping which mostly comprises SMEs typically operating less than 10 ships.

“The EU ETS has been an abject failure. Its unilateral application to global shipping would create market distortion while generating trade disputes with China and other Asian nations, as happened when the EU tried unsuccessfully to impose its ETS on international aviation,” said Bennett.

The ICS’ position is that if IMO Member States should decide to apply a market based measure for CO2 reduction to international shipping, the preference of the industry would be for a global fuel levy.

The ICS says that shipping therefore fully accepts responsibility for reducing its CO2 and building on the 10 percent reduction already achieved by the sector during the last five-year period for which IMO data is available (2007-2012).

But fuel levy by the IMO, ICS says, would require the full support of developing nations which are worried about the potential impact on trade and economic development.

“Even if market based measures are found necessary to achieve the objectives which IMO sets for the sector, threatening non-EU partners with unilateral action is not going to help them to overcome their legitimate concerns. The only forum in which to have this debate is at IMO,” said Bennett.

ICS says it is working closely with the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA) to persuade the plenary of the European Parliament, as well as EU Member States and the European Commission, to reject the EP Environment Committee’s report.

The plenary of the European Parliament is expected to vote on the Committee’s report in early 2017.

The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) has completed its review of the proposed vessel-sharing alliance “THE Alliance”, allowing the grouping to become effective on December 19, 2016.

THE Alliance is comprised of five different container shipping companies: Hapag-Lloyd; K Line; MOL; NYK; and Yang Ming. It plans to deploy 240 ships across 31 services and over 75 ports in Asia, North Europe, the Mediterranean, North America and the Middle East.

The Commission voted to allow the agreement to become effective following a period of substantive and constructive discussion with the parties.

The application on THE Alliance plan to establish a vessel-sharing agreement was submitted to the FMC on November 4, 2016. The Commission says it made no Request for Additional Information, clearing the way for the agreement to come into force within the initial 45-day review period.

Under the terms of the agreement, THE Alliance members are permitted to share vessels, charter and exchange space on each other’s ships, and enter into cooperative working arrangements.

“I am very cognizant of the concerns industry stakeholders had regarding provisions in this agreement, particularly those related to information sharing and joint procurement,” stated Federal Maritime Commission Chairman Mario Cordero. “This office will continue to carefully focus on the impacts of the carrier alliance restructuring that is taking place in the shipping industry. Considerable review and analysis goes into assessing a final agreement before it is allowed to go into force and I am grateful for the hard work of Commission staff.”

The scope of this agreement applies only to trade lanes between the United States and other nations, the FMC noted. Not covered is cargo moved by carriers in THE Alliance that does not originate or terminate in the United States.

The Federal Maritime Commission is responsible for regulating the Nation’s international ocean transportation for the benefit of exporters, importers, and the American consumer. The Commission’s mission is to foster a fair, efficient, and reliable international ocean transportation system while protecting the public from unfair and deceptive practices.

Aaccording to Alphaliner, THE Alliance will be the smallest of the three major shipping alliance groups operating between Asia and Europe. The others are the 2M (+ HMM) and Ocean Alliance.

The Alliance is expected to begin service in April 2017.
