Focus Container Line in liquidation

Focus Container Line has become the second casualty of the container market downturn after liquidators were appointed on 14 February 2023 to wind up the company that is based in Brendale in Queensland, Australia. It follows the insolvency of the UK based Allseas Global Project Logistics in October 2022. Both companies suffered from their ill-timed entry into the container shipping markets that have been hit by a collapse in freight rates. Focus Container Line was established in March 2022 but o

Container Liners Saw Lower Revenue in January

Taiwanese liners' January revenue continued its slide. In aggregate these 3 listed liners' revenue at about $1.6bn in January was down 14% MoM and 65% YoY.

Many factories in China closed ahead of the official public holidays and resumed production later than the official holiday end, which may have negatively impact container shipment v

Maersk guided 80-90% YoY fall in earnings during 2023

Maersk reported before European market open today (8 Feb). 4Q EBIT came out as $5.0b, better than the $4.8bn guided in November. Although not being very surprising, this beat has to be viewed in context that the 4Q EBIT was down 47% QoQ and 26% YoY. The main delta contributing to Maersk's profit was the 23% QoQ fall in average freight rates, which however was less than the 455 QoQ fall in CCFI due to Maersk's higher than average contract mix. The most concerning to the capital market is that
