BIMCO: Einfluss von COVID-19 auf Charterverträge

Die BIMCO hat gestern ein kurzes Video (12 Minuten) über den Einfluss von COVID-19 auf die Charterverträge veröffentlicht. Die BIMCO beschreibt das Video wie folgt:

“The COVID-19 pandemic is causing uncertainty about port calls and the allocation of liabilities and re-sponsibilities under charter parties. In this short video Grant Hunter talks to BIMCO’s head of Support & Advice, Merete Greisen, about answers they give members to the five most frequently asked questions."

The Top 5 questions BIMCO receives related to contracts and the coronavirus are:

•             Are ports considered unsafe?

•             Is this a 'force majeure' situation?

•             What about laytime - will it run?

•             Will a ship remain on hire?

•             Can the charter party be cancelled?

 Das Lernvideo ist auf folgendem Link zu finden:

(20.3.2020) After another Week-on-Week decline across all segments, the new ConTex is back to levels of 12 months ago. While some feeder sizes were even down on Year-on-Year figures, all sizes above 2,700 TEU are still up on 2019 numbers. Regardless of this development, there was plenty of extension activity overall in different areas this week.

In the feeder sizes, demand for 1,700 TEU vessels is picking up in Asia and there is less spot tonnage around, while eco Bangkokmaxes are almost sold out for the time being. Asia is busy with feeders because of port congestions as the side effect of the travel restrictions implemented in some of the Asian countries such as China, Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia. Nevertheless, the situation in the Far East is normalising by the week, while there is some uncertainty rising in the western Hemisphere. There are numerous port across the Continent and Mediterranean area, which have imposed restrictions on vessels calling said ports.

(21.2.2020) The Coronavirus problem may be "contained" for now but the effect it is having on the Container Market cannot be ignored. Volumes are clearly down and the operators are having to make significant adjustments. A number of sailings have been cancelled and land transport together with the backing-up of containers in the ports are causing major logistical headaches. No doubt when the crisis
fades away there will presumably quite a sharp recovery but, for now, the market is proving quite a challenge to many.

The previously announced changes to the composition of the New ConTex Index have now taken effect: 5700 and 6500 TEU ships are now included, charter periods of 6 months are additionally monitored for 1100 and 1700 TEU ships whilst the 2500, 2700, 3500 and 4250 TEUs are all now being assessed additionally for 12 months terms.

It comes as little surprise to note the New ConTex Index falling 7 points since last week, the Index now stands at 408. All the component rates have been marked lower this week with the exception of the 5700 TEUs which recorded a modest 0.2% increase. The largest decreases were recorded in the 3500-4250 TEU range, particularly so with the 4250 TEUs based on 24 months employment which registered a hefty 3.5% fall, symptomatic of the uncertainty in the market at the moment.

(23.1.2020) The situation at the charter market did not change much when compared to last week. Again, the New ConTex decreased by 2 points. Charter rates for feeder vessels with a capacity of 1,100 and 1,700 TEU moved more or less sideways. As fixing activity increased prior to Chinese New Year the 1,100 TEU vessels saw a slight upward movement of 0.2% during this week. However, most operators concluded shorter periods. The evaluation of the 2,700 and 3,500 TEU segments decreased by 0.5% and 0.7% over a period of 12 months, while demand for larger tonnage is still high due to the ongoing scrubber installations.

The demand for more or less all segments is expected to rise when the Chinese New Year festivities are coming to an end and all market participants are back at their desks.
