Claims keep pouring in against insolvent Sails By Ray Smuts Claims against insolvent South African Independent Liner Services (Sails) have poured in as effortlessly as punching a calculator, literally hundreds of millions of rand sought by creditors…with no apparent

hope of recovery. As liquidators Sanek Recovery Trust grind on with the process of winding up a fledgling company with no known existing assets, FTW has learnt of the mindboggling extent of what can best be described as a creditor

crisis ‘horribilis’. Before Sails, brainchild of founder and MD Ian Wicks and subsequently heavily funded by pan-African conglomerate, Lonrho Africa (Holdings) went into liquidation property ‘owned’ by Sails – that is

bunkers aboard the chartered vessel Orinoco River – were seized and sold, along with assets from an unknown bank account, in admiralty proceedings. This in order to create a maritime fund (‘The Fund’), against which a separate set

of maritime claimants could lodge claims still to be ruled on by a referee, who has subsequently recommended nine (claims) against ‘The Fund’ including: • Getma International SAS EUR 122 300.70 and US$115 To page 12

‘Light at the end of the tunnel’ By Liesl Venter The global economic downturn may still be affecting the world, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Captain Bo Löfman, general manager for Eukor Car Carriers Middle East region, says there is a definite revival in the vehicle industry, albeit very slow. For the first time in months the line’s South African agent, Diamond Shipping Services, has seen orders come in again with at least 3000 vehicles already en-route to the country. According to Loefman there is no denying that it has

FTW1702SD

been a tough nine months for most industries. Speaking at a function in Johannesburg recently, he told clients that it was important to focus on the positive and move towards increasing services in these times. “We don’t start a service because it is easy, but rather because it is difficult. We don’t shy away from difficult trading areas.” With services across the globe, operating 85 specialised car carrier vessels, and with an annual turnover of more than $1.5 billion, the company says that with good partners and an extended network, it is optimistic about the future.

DUTY CALLS A weekly summary of the main changes to the South African tariff dispensation and amendments to customs and The Doha Discussions on Customs A study that may be of interest to most of our readers titled ‘A Preliminary Study on the Impacts of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Doha Development Agenda (DDA) Negotiations on Customs’, has just been published. From a policy point of view the study identified, amongst other things, that the ongoing negotiations and the potential conclusion of the DDA demand a more active engagement and involvement from Customs administrations in the WTO negotiation process both nationally and in Geneva. According to the study, the role of Customs is to control the movement of goods and thus to secure the state’s interests and in addition safeguard revenue collection. Furthermore, Customs also ensures compliance with government policies and laws applicable to the cross-border movement of goods, combats

smuggling, and secures borders, while ensuring at the same time facilitation of fair trade. Although the study expects much of this role to remain the same, it also foresees that the responsibilities in relation to the international movement of goods have broadened, and will continue to broaden, from the traditional role of merely collecting duties and taxes on international trade transactions in support of the fiscal (revenue collection), to include executing controls and other activities that serve a wider set of government objectives. No Tariff Amendments – 17 July 2009 Tariff Amendments – Clothing – 10 July 2009 A notice appeared in the Government Gazette in respect of the reduction of the rates of customs duty on certain products used for the manufacture of clothing articles to free of duty.

Committed to superior standards of customer service which founded Firstclass Logistics and inspired our vision

Industry lethargy holds back progress Just brought in to supply the kiss of life to the ailing SA chapter of the Transported Asset Protection Association (Tapa) is information technology (IT) specialist Marius Louw, formerly head of the ID Verification System (IVS). Despite the sound basis on which Tapa was established – the need for all stakeholders (shippers, service providers, law enforcement, government and the like) to work together for the common cause – SA business has displayed its usual lethargy at getting involved in anything new, Louw told FTW. “It’s also despite all the hard work put in by SA chairman John Nelson in recent times,” he added, “where the intelligence database for incident reporting was successfully implemented and an excellent relationship created with the SA Police Service (SAPS).” This was confirmed, for example, by Superintendent Johan Jacobs of SAPS, whose message to a Tapa general meeting in Boksburg last year

FTW1713SD

was: “Talk to us.” “Most of the goods transported in and out of the country through OR Tambo Airport are transported through my precinct,” he told delegates. “And at the SAPS we believe that people like yourselves can help to make a difference.” But the issue has now been complicated by the fact that Nelson has left his previous post with TNT, and simultaneously withdrawn as head of Tapa. This saw George Weissing of Tapa in Europe talking to Louw, and asking him to head the Tapa committee and to help resuscitate the association. “I will be leading the Tapa management committee,” said Louw, “until we can elect a new chairman and breathe extra fire into an organisation that is an essential element in the fight against cargo crime in SA.” Evidence of the value of the Tapa concept globally is the formation of a new anti-crime task force for China.

SA leads the way in ship arrest procedure

Ngqura containers tracked by satellite

Act permits the arrest of so-called ‘associated’ ships By Ray Smuts At least eleven ships remain under arrest in the port of Cape Town, a clear indication that South Africa has regained its standing as one of world’s most favoured maritime jurisdictions for claim relief. Ship arrest is, as maritime lawyers pointed out at a recent presentation in Cape Town, a sure sign of the global economic malaise which has not only led to many orders being cancelled for new ships but to breaches of charter contracts. This despite charter rates way down, from US$230 000 a day to US$23 000 a day in November for Cape-size vessels of between 120 000 and 200 000 tons. Gavin Fitzmaurice, a partner in the law firm Webber Wentzel in Cape Town, says South Africa’s Admiralty Act 105 of 1983

represents an approach to maritime law hailed by practitioners the world over as the leading example of how matters should be dealt with. Chief among the issues the Act successfully grappled with was how to permit litigants to enforce claims, or obtain security for claims, from shipping defendants who had arranged their affairs typically by way of one ship owner. This Act permits the arrest of so-called ‘associated’ ships so that if a claim arises in respect of a particular vessel, known as the ‘ship concerned’, one would in other jurisdictions be limited in most instances to either arresting the ‘ship concerned’ or a sister ship owned by the same owner. “In this jurisdiction,” says Fitzmaurice, “one can pierce the corporate veil (Section 3, brackets six and 7) of the Act to arrest a ship which

although not owned by the same defendant company, can be proven to be subject to a common control. “South Africa is the pioneer, unique in this, and leads the way to provide a remedy for local and foreign litigants to enforce or get security for their claims

‘South Africa provides a remedy for local and foreign litigants to enforce or get security for their claims.’ by way of associated ship arrests.” South Africa’s limelight faded a tad in the last four or five years when the New York courts and legal practitioners developed the so-called Rule B attachment procedure. This enabled a litigant anywhere in the world to

DUR DES MBSa DJIB ELT HFa

approach a New York court seeking security for a claim against a maritime defendant by seizing cash in US dollars through the US transferring banks – but such ‘cash’ relief is not applicable under South African law. Fitzmaurice says the convenient Rule B procedure is however on its way out, if not “already dead and buried”, given that a new ruling forbids cash to be seized if a defendant company has a New York registered office, a procedure now followed by most shipping companies. “Mirroring the end of that remedy, South Africa has seen a significant rise in ship arrests, back to the levels of the 1990s and it’s on the increase in all ports.” Fitzmaurice says the phenomenon has increased at least six or seven-fold in Cape Town, from one or two vessels a month.

Has ‘conference fatigue’ set in? By Liesl Venter Planning your monthly diary can only be complete once you have taken into account the host of conferences on the annual calendar. But with several conferences canned last minute, FTW asked the question whether “conference fatigue” had set in. No, says Catherine Larkin of CVL Consulting. “There are a lot of events happening, but they each have a particular audience in mind. If there are too many events in our industry, I do believe that this will be solved through natural forces of supply and demand. Those events that do not have a critical mass will fall by the wayside.” In May an event by Thebe Exhibitions and Projects fell by the wayside after being cancelled last minute due to keynote speakers’ availability, while the Ciltsa airfreight conference was also canned. Larkin says despite budgets being cut, conferences still offer numerous benefits. “The number one reason people attend is still to network and build and establish relationships. At the same time they keep

up to date with industry developments, stay on top of best practices and emerging industry issues, while broadening the mind – all aspects that you don’t necessarily come across in your day-to-day work.” She believes that conferences need to ensure they have compelling speakers while also not being afraid of addressing controversial and topical issues. “Good planning is also essential to ensure that the conference provides focused networking opportunities for sponsors, delegates and speakers while memorable activities are also a part of the package. It must not always be more of the same, but rather a variety and good mix with a lot of interaction.” Larkin says while conferences and training are often the first budgets to be cut, there is still value in conferences. “By not attending conferences a company is isolating itself from its industry and losing out on valuable opportunities. If used correctly, conferences are an excellent way to market your brand, interact with clients and potential clients, increase your knowledge – and stay ahead of competition.”

Sapics event unaffected by recession Despite the economic recession, this year’s annual conference of Sapics – the Association for Operations Management of Southern Africa – hit near record levels both in sponsors and number of exhibitors at the accompanying exhibition, according to Sapics manager, Jenny Froome. “Yes,” she said, “we were up in exhibitors and had an increase in sponsorship. Our number of delegates was certainly down on last year, but that was no surprise, with last year being a record year anyway because it was Sapics’ 30th birthday conference.” But this year’s figure was still a good attendance at the conference, she added, with 948 delegates, compared to

the 1 200 who attended in 2008. Although companies in SA are trying hard to cut costs wherever they can, to combat the seriously reduced trade volumes in these straitened times, the prime purpose of Sapics is not being overlooked, says Froome. “Businesses have remembered that education is vitally important, and prepares them to have the necessary skills to guarantee a successful future. “And that is what Sapics is all about.” Is the smaller participation a sign of recessionary times or is the SA market too small for the number of events being staged?

Locally-based inspection company provides Africa expertise Large government contract recently signed up By Liesl Venter There seems to be no stopping the growth of the Global Inspections Group. Having doubled its turnover in the first half of 2009, the company is making strides in its goal to become a truly international player and a recognised brand name, says Stefan Sakoschek, executive group chairman. A Frenchman who has been living in South Africa since 1994, Sakoschek recognised a market opportunity to establish an inspection company in the country. “There were only a handful of big players and they were all European based,” says Sakoschek. “We decided to set up shop in South Africa with our head office in

Johannesburg replicating the same business model and utilising the same set of skills, but offering a better service to South Africa and Africa, being based here.” In May 2001 the company, specialising in inspectionrelated activities, was officially launched and has been growing ever since. With only five inspectors, the early years saw the company immediately spreading its wings from South Africa into Africa. “Today we have 250 inspectors and operate across Africa. We are, however, still on a growth path,” says Sakoschek. With its major client base comprising big trading houses, banks and financial institutions and international aid organisations, it has recently signed a large

government contract, something on which the company has been working for years. “We are now the authorised service providers to the Kenyan Bureau of Standards. It was very important for us to pick up on government contracts as it places us on a par with our competitors.” For Sakoschek this is just the beginning. “We want to be an international player that is recognised across the world and that is what we are working towards.”

A Tiger that never passes the buck!

Your

Cargo

Africa transporter specialises in difficult routes By Liesl Venter Ask Ralston Smith for his title and he will tell you he is just a transporter. And that means moving cargo efficiently no matter where and no matter when. The managing director of Tiger Africa Transport, a business started by his father in 1981, Smith has always been involved in the transport industry and believes that learning the practical way has much to do with their success. One of the few transporters to tackle African countries as far as Ethiopia and Sudan, there is no place that Smith and his team deem too far. “Our strength lies in the fact that we are willing to venture off the known and main routes. If someone tells us of a bad road, we probably already know it.” Often taking on jobs to deliver in areas where there are hardly any roads, the answer to doing it well lies in speed, says Smith. “We drive slowly and we drive carefully. But our track record speaks for itself – we guarantee to deliver the goods safely and without

20 foot containers for sale R9 500

damage.” And they can prove it. In the whole of 2008 the company only lost two bags of plastic resin that broke after the load shifted on the truck and they fell to the ground. In 2007 there were no incidents and the same can be said for 2009 so far. “The areas to which we travel are known for pilferage and it just does not happen with us which could possibly be due to our no-excuse policy.” Choosing to only have one person travelling per truck has also seen some success. “No-one can pass the buck,” says Smith. “We also make sure that management is on hand on site if something goes wrong.” Having travelled extensively in all the countries where Tiger Africa Transport operates, Smith has built up a team of contacts across the continent. “Working in Africa poses many challenges, making experience and contacts key. What makes us able to service Africa so well via road is that we truly understand the continent and the way it works.”

Shippers’ Council spearheads collaboration initiative

Road industry

Other service providers

Dti and Sars have already bought into the concept with members from all the major industry sectors such as paper, mining, building, petro-chemical, fruit and metals. The principle of collaboration is a strategic necessity, Pelser added, if the council is to truly fulfil its mandate. “In terms of its objectives, the council has taken a decision to pursue only matters of principle. It will therefore not involve itself in any commercial relationship between a shipper and its logistics service providers, other than where such relationship implies a matter of principle, not only to the specific shipper, but also to shippers in general.” This principle has already met with full support from the SASC membership, with all those in attendance at last September’s annual council conference agreeing to the proposed collaboration

By Alan Peat The words “collaboration platform” are top of the agenda at the South African Shippers’ Council (SASC), according to executive director, LM Pelser. In South Africa approximately 1.5-billion tonnes of cargo are moved every year. “To obtain optimal execution,” Pelser said, “all the role players in the freight supply chain will have to work together at strategic level.” The SASC – which wields 200-million tonnes of cargo shipped by its members each year as its bargaining muscle – is determined to remove itself from the day-to-day individual commercial issues in the freight supply chain and to focus on high-level collaboration between all the stakeholders and government. The council serves as a representative body of cargo owners in Southern Africa,

platform. Pelser summarised the major focus areas of the collaboration platform as: • A sharing of futuristic needs (strategic level); • Identifying shortfalls and non-conformances in the present supply chain system; • The development of supply chain needs; • The meeting and understanding of partner requirements; • The optimal usage of infrastructure; • Enhancing SA – and making the country attractive for investors; • Increasing SA’s international competitiveness. “Our early approaches to government have met with an extremely positive response. In our discussions with the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) and the SA Revenue Service (Sars), for example, both these departments see only benefits

and will participate. “Also, during an informal discussion, the trade statistics division of Sars indicated that they would participate in the collaboration platform.” Discussions are also under way with other relevant government departments – such as the Department of Transport (DoT) and the treasury – and major service providers (both public and

Sars private), to confirm their participation. “Now is the time to become a role player in this very important initiative,” Pelser added. “Let us work together, to make South Africa a leading country in the world.” Cargo owners or freight supply chain service providers who wish to participate can contact LM Pelser at: lm.pelser@absamail.co.za

Positive response from government ‘encouraging’ In an exclusive FTW interview, LM Pelser, executive director of the SA Shippers’ Council (SASC), revealed some of the thinking behind the council’s creation of a “collaboration platform”. Q: What triggered the original move towards creating this concept? Pelser: The council came to the conclusion that a lot of decisions at strategic level in the supply chain are taken in isolation. Q: The evidence supporting this? Pelser: Typical decisions which may have long-term implications – such as

the development of port infrastructure, closing down of secondary rail lines and focusing on major corridors where biggest revenue can be generated – are taken without consultation with the role-players in that specific sector. If consultation is done, it is with very selective entities – and most of the time the entities do not have the insight, or even more often, just don’t react to requests. A typical South African syndrome! Look, just see where this lack of competitive choice can lead. The removal, for example, of certain rail

services from so-called rural sectors opened the door for road to step in. Seeing that there was no competition, they did so gleefully. Road is growing daily! It’s a no-choice situation for cargo owners. Q: You certainly have a serious gripe about this issue. But, as we always ask: Right! We know the problem. But what answer did you come up with? Pelser: If we are complaining about there being a lack of consultation between all the stakeholders, we obviously need to engineer a way for everybody to be able to talk

to everybody. So the SASC decided to test the creation of a collaboration platform between cargo owners, government and all roleplayers in the supply chain (road, rail, ports etcetera) during our annual conference in September last year. The proposal was seconded by all the attendees. We also received a mandate to take a leading role in the development of such a platform. Q: And where has it got to up to now? Pelser: Although we’ve had the usual interruptions of school holidays and the not-

so-usual interruption of the elections and establishment of the new administrations in government, we have seen momentum over the short-term. Our early approaches to government have met with an extremely positive response. In our discussions with the Department of Public Enterprise, Department of Trade and Industry and the SA Revenue Service, for example, these departments see only benefits and will participate actively, for which we thank them. Now that we have got things moving, we can only keep going forward.

and insure over R16-millionmillion in trade receivables. The current financial crisis and the ensuing recession were main subjects of discussion at the AGM, according to Truter. “Credit insurers perceive a heavily deteriorated

commercial risk environment and therefore a sharp increase in default probability,” he told FTW. “Furthermore, credit insurers forecast a sharp decrease of insured trade and therefore a downturn in premium volume, which may

happen in 2010. “However, this decrease, thanks to a basic level of international trade, will be less than the drop in gross domestic product (GDP) in some markets, in particular in the USA.”

FREIGHT PERSONALITY SERIES

From mining to shipping ... the journey continues

Jonathan Horn ... Safmarine regional executive for Africa. By Ray Smuts Ups and downs in mining, oil and shipping are as much part of Jonathan Horn’s working life as driving a ball down the fairway or doing press-ups in the gym. With an impressive CV that includes a number of well-respected companies in the sectors mentioned above, Safmarine’s regional executive

for Africa retains vivid memories of post-September 2008, when world economies were plunged into economic meltdown including plummeting demand for metals, oil and shipping. Horn professes to be no economist but is nevertheless optimistic the South African economy will recover a tad toward the end of the year, along with the economies of West and East Africa – and that this country should be on the up come the end of 2010/ early 2011. South Africa, says Horn, has better weathered the storm than many, due in the main to prudent financial disciplines introduced by former finance minister Trevor Manuel and the Reserve Bank’s Tito Mboweni, prior to the onset of the current crisis. Infrastructural development will also stand the country in good stead, including that for next year’s Soccer World Cup, which will provide a huge financial stimulus for now and in years to come. “Like many big companies, including those in shipping, Safmarine

has had to adjust significantly to meet the difficult times, re-examining its cost base and deployment. “Relationships, getting closer to customers, have become really important in order to understand their needs, how the crisis has impacted on their businesses and how we can assist to help drive costs down and improve efficiencies in their supply chains. “We are both affected by the current global downturn, which is why it is so important to work together to find solutions that provide long-terms-wins for both of us. We always have and will continue to stay focused on our customers, on what is an ever-growing base.” On treasury’s forecast of zero economic growth this year, Horn says : “I don’t think it’s all negative because the annual forecast comes on the back of negative growth during the first two quarters of the year.” Born and schooled in Kimberley, Horn joined De Beers as a mining engineer after graduating with a B.Sc in mining engineering from Wits University, and later worked for

the JCI Mining Group (Rustenburg Platinum Mines) after obtaining an MBA at Wits. Thereafter he was employed in various capacities by Engen before heading to Singapore as a vice president in Cap Gemini Ernst and Young’s Energy and Utilities practice in their Asia Pacific region. Horn joined Safmarine as regional executive for KwaZulu Natal at the beginning of 2004, took charge of AP Moller-Maersk’s southern Africa human resources division in Cape Town two years later, and was subsequently appointed deputy to Alan Jones, Safmarine’s then regional executive for Africa. Married for nearly 20 years to Cape Town girl, Cathy, Horn has two children, Jason (18) and Stacey (14), and devotes much of his time away from the office time (including frequent travel in Africa) to his family. He enjoys a round of golf, playing off a seven-handicap, regular workouts at the gym, listening to music and reading.

Last week’s top stories on

‘Sustainable Shipping Operator of the Year’ named Maersk Line was named Sustainable Shipping Operator of The Year at an awards ceremony in London this week by online news service sustainable shipping.com. The award was in recognition of its efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its business operations.

The Autogate - will this solve the congestion problems at DCT?

Durban congestion moves from road to terminal the Bayhead Road access to the terminal. It was a reversal of the old checking procedures, and would speed up the flow of traffic through the terminal, according to TPT. Has it worked and have things improved, FTW asked Malcolm Sodalay, MD of

By Alan Peat It is now a year since the A check facility was introduced at the Durban container terminal (DCT) – the answer, trumpeted Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) at the time, to the long queues of commercial vehicles jamming

Sammar Investments and chairman of the Durban harbour carriers’ section of the SA Association of Freight Forwarders (Saaff). “It has certainly removed the congestion from the road,” he said. “But all it’s done is moved it inside the terminal.”

Highest container ship sales since 2007 The sales and purchase market for containerships is reported to have seen renewed activity in June with 29 containerships being sold, the highest monthly level recorded since mid-2007.

Recession ‘cures’ US container shortage As a sign of the tight times in trade, the shortage of containers to ship American goods out through the various export channels expressed to FTW by readers a year ago, is no more. This lack of boxes hit press pages all across the US in the first half of last year, even taking space in the prestigious finance publication, The Wall Street Journal. The cost of shipping a forty-foot (12-metre) equivalent unit (FEU) from the US west coast to China jumped by 20% in the 2007/08 period, said the report. “And this,” it added, “has exacerbated a shortage of boxes already created by an American consumer slump caused by the US sub-prime crisis that has reduced the number of containers coming into the country.” Shipping lines in SA were very careful in their allocation of the few available boxes, with many of them giving preference to customers with whom they had built strong, long-lasting relationships. But no more. The global trade smash has now seriously hit both US import and export volumes,

and a similar oversupply in the other trade markets is leaving unused, empty boxes littering international ports in hundreds of thousands. In May last year, Richard Rattray, MD of Concordia International Forwarding Corporation in SA, alerted FTW to the fact that the general shortage of boxes of all types was having an effect on US-SA trade flows. “That’s not the case now,” he said. “With a big drop in demand because of the current economic crisis, there’s just no problem in getting containers.”

Corinne French of United Maritime Logistics was also a complainant last year. But she is now, singing another song. “This time last year,” French added, “the majority of carriers were totally out of all sizes of containers, and some of our customers were incurring additional costs because of the repositioning of containers in order to meet deadlines.” But she finds things much better now. “There’s still a bit of a shortage of open-tops,” she said, “but hi-cubes, the main demand in containers for US exports, are in plentiful supply.”

through 2H2009 and into 2010.” ‘Big opportunities for SA’s automotive logistics’ Global Automotive Logistics 2009, a new report compiled by UK-based Transport Intelligence, concludes that despite the catastrophic meltdown the market has endured, opportunities exist for logistics companies who can react fast enough to a savage rationalisation of the auto industry. South Africa will become an important production location due to the fragmenting nature of the world’s production footprint, according to the report. Shipping line has mystery share price collapse A 32% collapse in Orient Overseas (International) Ltd’s share price in the dying moments of trade at the Hong Kong bourse has left the company’s management dazed and confused, according to Lloyds List writer Mike Grinter.

Global recovery – is it for real? First National Bank chief economist Cees Bruggemans believes the global green shoots are for real. “Not every country is as yet participating equally, but there is nevertheless a broadbased movement under way that will probably gather pace

12 | FRIDAY July 24 2009

As the world continues to scramble for solutions to the growing number of piracy attacks in the Gulf of Aden, shippers are becoming innovative in the protection of their crews, vessels and cargo. And this could mean anything from turning fire hoses on attacking pirates to wrapping vessels in barbed wire. Piracy expert Roger Middleton of London-based

think tank Chatham House says there are various evasive procedures that ships can take to protect themselves against piracy attacks. This could include attaching barbed wire to the sides of the ship preventing pirates from boarding, or having water canons placed on board that can be used to flood the engines of the pirates’ skiffs. “It is all about finding measures or deterrents that prevent pirates from scaling the sides and boarding.”

and Wilhelmsen Premier Marine Fuels. Top Cape Town maritime lawyer Gavin Fitzmaurice, a partner in the firm Webber Wentzel, and tasked specifically with the Monjasa claim, says: “We estimate the value of ‘The ‘Fund’ as being less than US$200 000 (R1.62 million) and therefore not nearly big enough to satisfy all the claims against it.” It would appear that most of ‘The Fund’ creditors will have to file and prove claims with the liquidators to recover the balance (or a proportion thereof) from the insolvent estate, says Fitzmaurice. “Creditors are lining up to consider actions against responsible directors, shareholders and the like.” It is an assertion fully endorsed by Wicks, who says Lonrho ran the company during the five months of his suspension prior to liquidation. “The creditors, if they so wish, could well undertake a company enquiry or go for the directors or shareholders directly – Lonrho, as the major stakeholder, with majority control of the Sails board.”

American shippers have actively been advised to use barbed wire as a preventative measure. In an interview with CNN recently, America’s vice admiral William Gortney, commander of the US naval forces in Bahrain, said barbed wire was proving extremely successful and earlier this year two ships using this safety measure had managed to avoid being hijacked by pirates. While some experts are advising shippers to employ armed guards to patrol their vessels, the International Maritime Bureau (IMB) has advised against this. Pottengal Mukundan, director of the IMB, has said that arming merchant vessels was not the answer and ran the risk of making the situation worse. Piracy attacks increased tenfold in the first three months of 2009 compared to the same time last year. According to the IMB some 30 000 ships sail through the Gulf of Aden every year. Piracy experts and government advisers concur that there is no quick solution to halting piracy. “Pirates are regularly demanding and receiving million-dollar ransom payments and their operations are becoming increasingly sophisticated. The pirates have improved their equipment and now use GPS systems and satellite phones giving them a greater ability to capture potential targets,” says Middleton. “Only a political solution in Somalia offers a long-term solution to piracy.”

From page 1 303.00 in respect of agency services. • Mozport Transportes Investimentos De Mozambique LDD, US$13 607.67 for agency services rendered to the charter vessel MV Bertha in Maputo. • Bottom Line Solutions R997 394.86 in respect of an unfulfilled terminal handling and agency agreement. • Capselling for R24 526.48 over alleged breach of contract. • Grindrod Terminals for R1.66 million in respect of a deal concluded between itself and Sails agents. • Belgian bunker supplier, Monjasa for US$463 437. Over and above that, a separate schedule of 34 claims has been submitted to the liquidators but only two approved; Lonrho (Claim 12) and World Marine and Offshore Supply Co. Other claimants under this particular schedule include former Sails employees for small, necessary amounts, Capital Intermodal Limited of Hong Kong in respect of services rendered, British bunker supplier Bominflot,
