The UAE’s commitments towards the maritime industry Marking an exceptional achievement, the UAE won a Category B Membership into the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Council for the second time, beating the competition that was composed of 10 leading countries in the field of international maritime trade, including Germany, Sweden, Brazil, Argentina, France, and Australia. The UAE was declared the winner of the elections conducted during the 31st General Assembly Meeting, which was held in London. For us, the win affirms that the UAE’s qualifications play a pivotal and influential role in the global efforts to promote the international maritime system and drive towards more growth for global maritime trade.

H.E. Dr Abdullah Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Infrastructure Development and Chairman, Federal Transport Authority - Land and Maritime, celebrates IMO win.

We realize the huge responsibility on our shoulders for the global maritime industry, which is why we are no longer concerned about our local needs in the shipping sector. We are now responsible to deliver better services, regulations, and notations to all the members of the IMO.

One of the prime events we are hosting, as well as sponsoring in the UAE, is Breakbulk Middle East. It has unique features making it a wonderful opportunity to gather key players, as well as governmental organizations in the industry. A vital aspect of the exhibition is the way discussions are managed and organized bringing the top decisionmakers in the industry together in one platform to gather and conclude the best thoughts and ideas. We will be attending this event and directions have been given to my team in order to be fully involved in capturing the comments and ideas discussed. Not only to use it for our local development plans but also to give us more power in raising the voice of the industry directly inside the decision making circles within the IMO. I encourage everyone to attend and participate, and we promise the industry, that the UAE will be their advocate and best alliance in improving the maritime industry globally. Regards, H.E Dr. Abdullah Belhaif Al Nuaimi The UAE Minister of Infrastructure Development, the Chairman of Federal Transport Authority for Land and Maritime

The key for us to succeed in this mission starts with listening well to the main players in the sector and initiating productive discussions to ignite ideas and encourage solutions. Fortunately for us, the UAE is the hub for the most important maritime business events. It is the destination for all decision-makers and experts who are participating in such activities.

Making 2020 the year of opportunities in the UAE While natural resources are a key factor in providing prosperity and welfare to the nation, planning and proper management are vital in order to utilize nature’s gifts to countries all over the world. In the UAE, this has been acknowledged on a greater scale since the day the founding fathers gathered under one flag announcing the birth of one nation and one spirit. Amongst this spirit of maximizing opportunities, we ensure that the UAE is a global hub for businesses and economies to exchange trade and strike deals. Expo2020 is considered the climax of activities in this regard, and we promise the world the never-before-seen version of this global event in the UAE.

happen this February. Accordingly, we invite everyone involved in the maritime industry to join the cause and attend the discussion and debate. This will be a remarkable platform to discover opportunities and deals that will be related to the Expo2020. We will ensure that all key players and decisionmakers that will be involved in Breakbulk Middle East 2020 are participating and reacting to the interaction and feedback from the maritime industry. Regards, Eng. Ahmed Al Khouri Director General, The Federal Transport Authority for Land and Maritime

One of the most important enablers for Expo2020 is the strong infrastructure the UAE has in the shipping industry, allowing exhibitors to transfer all of their massive equipment and commodities to be presented on-site during the event, and even strike deals for immediate delivery and shipping to clients, as the UAE is considered one of the largest import/export hubs with the best logistic capabilities in the region. Discussion about improving the role of the shipping sector in supporting Expo2020 will be one of the main discussion themes of the Breakbulk Middle East 2020 event that will

control and develop the maritime sector in the UAE. The most important challenges we are facing are working at the federal level to regulate the maritime sector and the shortage of maritime specialists within the FTA team. How will these impact the transport of project cargo throughout the country? The mentioned challenges have a limited impact on cargo transportation throughout the country. However, we aspire to overcome these challenges to be able to cope with the ambitious vision of the UAE leadership in the maritime sector. What projects are in the pipeline or under development that will require the delivery of project cargo? We are working closely with the Abu Dhabi ports team to integrate with Al Maqta single window project, the first port community platform in the UAE. Moreover, we are currently in the preparatory phase to establish the Maritime Information Centre, which will help the industry to get an insight into the sector to make better decisions.

Breakbulk Ports: Development, Demand and Competition

Which sectors look to be the most promising both short term and long term? Of course, the development and new projects launched in the offshore sector are making a huge impact on improving the business opportunities for local investors. From the other side, we are counting highly on the release of the new maritime law to help improve the overall legal framework and attract more international investors to the UAE over the long term. What role does China’s Belt and Road initiative play in the region? Due to the strategic location of the UAE ports in the middle of the most important global trade routes, the Belt and Road initiative will attract more business to the UAE, enabling more in the area of transshipment cargo via UAE ports. Are there other countries interested in project development partnerships? Our most important strategic partner in the maritime sector is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The UAE government has signed many agreements with the KSA

leadership to execute mutual projects and carry on massive development. The UAE is known throughout the world as a progressive country. What trends will impact future growth? What does the UAE in 2030 look like? We are working now to equip our maritime sector with state-of-the-art digital transformation capabilities to boost trade. In 2030, we hope to be leaders in the artificial intelligence technologies, running the smartest ports that will be ready to receive smart autonomous ships. As an accomplished woman in government, what advice do you have for other women who would like to follow in your footsteps? My advice to women in the maritime industry is to work always to upgrade your qualifications and skills, and to be dedicated to your job regardless of your position. To network with other female leaders, plan to attend the Women in Breakbulk breakfast session on Wednesday morning. Tickets are $25 and available in the registration portal.

Maqta Gateway Fuels UAE’s Digital Transformation Maqta Gateway LLC, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, launched Maqta Gateway in 2016 as the beginning of a massive digital transformation project for maritime trade and logistics. The centerpiece of the project is an expandable, multi-use digital platform known as mPCS, the Maqta Port Community System. New features have been released regularly over the past three years. In 2018, Abu Dhabi Customs and Maqta Gateway unveiled MAMAR, a modernized online single-window platform to facilitate trade across sea ports, land, air and post. MAMAR utilizes existing features from Abu Dhabi Customs’ e-services and mPCS, creating a fully integrated system following international messaging standards that allow seamless handling of import,

12 Breakbulk Middle East Preview 2020

export, and transshipment transactions, as well as the payment of customs duties for all types of cargo, whether by land, air or sea. The system is designed to increase transparency, reduce costs, and provide customers with speedy and efficient access to information regarding transactions, shipments, and logistics in real time. MAMAR works in line with the United Nations Single Window Implementation Framework, enabling it to exchange data with systems of nine ports in China and two ports in Europe, creating additional efficiencies for inbound and outbound trade to and from Abu Dhabi. Simultaneously, Abu Dhabi Ports became the first Abu Dhabi company to develop and launch its own blockchain

technology called Silsal, which has been integrated into mPCS, and provides a secure link between stakeholders across the trade community. In November of last year, Maqta Gateway added Margo to its digital solutions. As the UAE’s first online clearance and delivery marketplace, the platform enables customers to canvass quotes from trusted shipping providers who compete for their business. It also opens a channel through which shipping providers can access an untapped market segment. Margo is supported by leading logistics providers including these Breakbulk Middle East exhibitors: MICCO Logistics (Stand E10) Agility (Stand B10) GAC (Stand F41) Sharaf Shipping Agency (Stand A13) The new portal, currently in the soft launch phase, is fully enabled to accept payments for all entry-related charges with a single-payment gateway making the process quick and simple.

Preparing for Big Project Work in Africa

By Lars Greiner, HPC Hamburg Port Consulting and moderator for the Africa session at Breakbulk Middle East 2020 understand, the reason for the long lead time on Africa projects is the multifaceted requirements for projects there to take place. The countries need to have political and social stability of some kind, they need financing, as none have the funding for the projects, and they need there to be an off-take or use of their requirements.

Lars Greiner

Africa has long been seen as the last bastion of development with large and mega-projects in planning for many years and taking long periods of time to come to fruition. As those in the industry

16 Breakbulk Middle East Preview 2020

The landscape has definitely changed significantly over the last decade with more focus and potential in Africa than ever before, along with an unprecedented period of stability in the region for much of the last decade. Although there are signs that this is ending with a global move towards regionalism again, there is still more stability and unity in Africa than previously seen. This bodes well for projects to move forward and development to take place.

Common Misconceptions There are several key misconceptions about working on projects in Africa, and perhaps the most common one is the assumption of what basic infrastructure is present. In some areas, there is now some development, but in many—the Mozambican LNG projects are a good example—there is really very, very little, and one needs to question every assumption. For example, Palma is often described as a fishing village, and many outsiders assume it is a small fishing port, but Palma is really just a beach. I was there when the first soft-serve ice-cream machine was installed three years ago, and the entire village queued for soft-serve — literally, the entire village! The key issue in my mind is recognizing the need for development of basic

infrastructure to build a foundation for these mega-projects. The other misconception is you can take shortcuts without consequences. Crime and corruption start with people trying to rush things or take shortcuts, which opens the door for corruption. Don’t assume there are no rules, especially in remote locations. Find out exactly what the rules are and follow them to a T. If you check out the rules and follow them, and become known for this, then things rapidly become easier. The ‘bad guys’ steer clear of you. However, if you try to take shortcuts and they find out, then the road only becomes more and more difficult. Africa Project Outlook It’s always difficult to make predictions on projects in Africa because things change so rapidly. A couple of years ago, I was working on three mining projects in Tanzania and it looked like

they would keep me busy for years, and then the government changed its mining policy and things changed in weeks. It was similar in South Africa in the early 2010s when we had a multi-milliondollar project signed one month and cancelled the next, simply on the rumor of nationalization. With that said, I am very positive about the development of projects in Africa in the next couple of years. East Africa looks particularly good for development in infrastructure, and of course, oil and gas projects should see a veritable boom. West Africa is coming off an almost zero base, but it looks like there are some mining and infrastructure projects just beginning to tick over there. The key to both of these will be the development of the supporting infrastructure, especially in the power sector.

Upcoming Session Highlights We will be focusing on the Mozambique LNG projects in the Rovuma basin. These are looking very good to move forward quite rapidly in 2020 and 2021, but we still think that there is not a real appreciation of the high level of challenges around these projects and the requirements for them in terms of support. My panel will focus on what these requirements are and what are the basics that any transport and logistics company need to consider to be able to even start to get involved in these projects. We will cover existing logistics infrastructure, or lack of, as well as the escalating security concerns that must be addressed. Projects need to be delivered safely and on time, but you need to be properly prepared.

PROJECT OWNER PERSPECTIVE

ExxonMobil:

A Look at Advance Logistics at Rovuma LNG An interview with Christodoulos Christodoulou, Logistics Lead for ExxonMobil, panelist for the Africa session at Breakbulk Middle East 2020 Tell us about your role as logistics and infrastructure lead for Rovuma LNG.

Christodoulos Christodoulou

The role of logistics and infrastructure lead for Rovuma LNG is a key role within the project team responsible for the planning, definition and execution of end-to-end project logistics. It covers both material and personnel logistics as well as the definition of the associated infrastructures that are required to allow such logistics activities to occur. In the case of Rovuma LNG, the magnitude of operations combined with location remoteness and lack

18 Breakbulk Middle East Preview 2020

of existing reliable infrastructure has been the main reason that the project needed to take a closer look on the infrastructures together with the logistics to ensure design and operational efficiency and fitness for purpose for both. What is the most challenging project you have worked on? What challenges did you face and how were they solved? Looking back on previous projects, I can recall some challenging projects in Africa as well as in the Arctic and offshore environments, but the most challenging so far is definitely Rovuma LNG. When you combine the magnitude of the operations, remoteness of the location, the lack of existing reliable infrastructure, the security issues, the weather conditions, the environmental and socioeconomic sensitivities, it makes for a complex project that is predictably unpredictable. In such working conditions, our experience shows that

The Rovuma LNG project will involve numerous contractors working simultaneously for Area 4 and Area 1 projects. You are likely to have project cargo coming from many locations. How do you tackle such complex logistics? Transportation of materials and equipment has been identified as a critical activity since the early stages of the project with a few million tons of cargo expected to enter the country during execution. Our aim is to create the conditions for our contractors to succeed and that includes proper planning. The existing infrastructures (i.e. northern ports, roads) are constantly monitored and evaluated for their capacity to support the project cargo because we expect them to have a significant role, especially during the early stages of the project.

RELATED SESSION Tuesday, 25 February | 13:45 – 14:30

Emerging Market Spotlight: Africa Despite its challenging infrastructure, Africa is growing as a region of opportunity for project cargo specialists. With the largest ever LNG project currently underway in Mozambique, our panel of experts will share their thoughts on the Rovuma LNG project, as well as what’s next for the region and where to expect further opportunities to open up.

onsite facilities. For instance, we need an airport and camps that must include water, electricity and waste management. Currently, nothing is there, so we need to build everything so people can live and work at the site. We then need to increase the capacity of such a system gradually in accordance with the stage of project.

first time we will join Fluor and Technip on the same project, so it will be interesting to see what happens with the collaboration. How important is the region to JGC’s business overall? Do you anticipate more projects in Africa?

From the overall point of view, JGC has achieved many projects in Middle East and Asia, and now we are interested in the potential of African gas resources. JGC is always looking for any opportunities in Africa, but we need to remain focused on projects as part of the wider company strategy. We have been focusing on LNG projects rather than traditional oil & gas because they can be harmonized with the worldwide trend and environmental focus. The project market is now in the transformation phase — its center of gravity is switching toward cleaner energy. LNG must become something like a solution for the intermediate time. There is a huge demand in Japan and inter-Asia for gas, especially in China. Demand for gas is increasing, so we are expecting more LNG projects coming up over the next generation.

JGC will be working with several other EPCs, including Fluor and TechnipFMC. What will that collaboration look like? EPC was awarded to the joint venture among Fluor, Technip and JGC. JGC is the leader of the project among the three parties. JGC will take the engineering, procurement and construction for the LNG process trains. Technip will take off-site and utilities and Fluor will take common facilities like road, camp, etc. JGC has worked with Technip and Flour previously, such as on the Russian Arctic project. There is another big LNG project in Canada led by Shell, and they have partnered with Fluor on this one. JGC has the experience of working with these partners and it works quite well, however, this is the

If a company was planning to pursue project business in Africa for the first time, what advice can you offer?

Arctic project previously, so I am not an expert in the region. However, I hope to learn a lot of things through this project experience. It is clear that it is very important to understand the cultural differences of working in Africa — the language, people, culture, ways of doing business and getting to know this environment — this will be the key to success.

The State of IMO 2020 Compliance: Fluor Looks Ahead

An interview with Cyril Varghese, Global Logistics Director – Strategy & Commercial, Fluor, who will moderate the IMO 2020 session at Breakbulk Middle East 2020.

Join the conversation at Breakbulk Middle East “Conversations and collaboration over the next few months between owners, EPCs, freight forwarders and shipping lines will be key to ensure that the implementation of changes does not create further imbalances in an already delicate environment.” – CYRIL VARGHESE, GLOBAL LOGISTICS DIRECTOR – STRATEGY & COMMERCIAL, FLUOR Cyril Varghese

Many shippers have made provisions for freight increases for projects going into 2020, but there are also a great number of shippers and freight forwarders who have remained ignorant about the upcoming disruptions. It is too early to assess the full commercial impact of the regulations, as it takes time for the market to react to changes. How would you describe the preparation for IMO 2020 compliance? While I cannot comment on the preparedness of others, at Fluor, we started preparing for changes as early as 2015 by making provisions in our budgets – further accelerated after the Marine Environment Protection Committee’s 70th session.

IMO 2020 compliance and its impact across the project cargo industry has been a hot topic at Breakbulk events for several years. What did shippers expect and have these expectations been realized? Any surprises so far? The last few years have been very turbulent with the uncertainties around the implementation dates and projections around cost of compliance to implement the MARPOL Annex VI guidelines reducing the sulphur content in marine fuels to 0.5 percent from 3.5 percent. We are starting to see carriers re-calibrate their freight rates to account for the additional operational expenses that are fuel related.

Register at middleeast.breakbulk.com

From our perspective, while the uncertainty about the price points at which a compliant low-sulphur fuel will be available and the uncertainties around the availability of compliant fuel in commercially required quantities are diminishing as we approach the implementation dates, unpredictability about the eventual short-term and longterm impact on freight rates persists. It’s early days yet, so what would you like to see from a shipper’s perspective over the coming year as it relates to IMO 2020? I am interested to see how the pricing of compliant fuel fluctuates over the year and how the availability of fuel in required commercial quantities at most of the bunkering gateways eventually materializes. We are very keen to understand with carriers how the pricing is impacting operating costs and how much they are able to recover from the market.

transport had on projects, both those still in the pipeline and those that are underway? For both existing and planned projects, we have made significant efforts to segregate the fuel component from total shipping costs by trade lane and have made provisions for additional freight based on projected average bunker cost assumptions. We are now in the stage of reviewing proposed changes from the carriers and closely monitoring market freight developments. You’ve been instrumental in putting this key panel together for Breakbulk Middle East. Including ocean carriers is a given, but what will the planned involvement of project owner be? Conversations and collaboration over the next few months between owners, EPCs, freight forwarders and shipping lines will be key to ensure that the implementation of changes does not create further imbalances in an already delicate environment. Our intention is to kickstart those conversations among all key stakeholders in the industry. What do you expect audience members will gain from attending this panel? The decision-makers from EPCs, freight forwarders and shipping lines, along with other logistics service providers will stand to gain from the insights that will be discussed during the panel. By the time the panel takes place, we will certainly have insights about the pricing of fuel and availability constraints, if any. We will also know what price difference exists between high sulphur and low sulphur grades, and how this is affecting returns to the carriers who have invested in scrubbers.

What impact, if any, has the anticipated cost increase for ocean

Spliethoff Group has grown significantly during a time when other carriers have struggled. Will you bring us up to date on your recent acquisitions and where your fleet stands today? What factors have contributed to your success?

RELATED SESSION Tuesday, 25 February | 12:45 – 13:30

IMO 2020: What We Now Know… Having been in place for just under two months, this session will discuss how the implementation of the IMO 2020 regulation on 1st January has impacted the breakbulk and project cargo sector so far. With marine transport contributing to the largest proportion of all breakbulk movements globally, we are now able to answer some of the most pressing questions, such as ‘what will the price of bunker be?’ and ‘what is the cost of non-compliance?’. Join this diverse panel to discover how the industry has adapted so far and what the forecasts are for the rest of 2020. Moderator: Cyril Varghese, Global Logistics Director – Strategy & Commercial for Fluor Arne Hubregtse, Executive Board Member of Spliethoff Group Denis Bandura, Managing Director of BBC Chartering Grant Wattman, President & CEO, Agility Project Logistics

Arne Hubregtse

We bought 11 second hand vessels and ordered 10 newbuild vessels as a group. This was to replace old tonnage and to expand the fleet in areas of interest and we were able to take hold of opportunities when they occurred. The opportunities were with second hand vessels and are an expansion in the project cargo & heavy lift part of the fleet. We tried to differentiate ourselves from competition through a high service level and reliability of services toward customers by operating well maintained vessels and an extensive commercial and operational network. Customers value that in certain market segments, and this is one part of the success. For these niche markets we aim to operate sufficient vessels — not too many, not too few — and this enables us to remain competitive. You will be participating in the IMO 2020 panel in February at Breakbulk Middle East. Tell us about how Spliethoff Group’s fleet will comply with the regulations. How

did you weigh the decision between scrubbers and low sulphur fuel, and how will your choice benefit both you and your customers? For the coming 10 to 15 years, there are three options: LNG, compliant fuels and scrubbers. We evaluated the three options and had the following thoughts: • Retrofitting LNG is very complicated and not a viable option for us. In addition, the total contribution to greenhouse gas emissions is slightly worse using LNG than high sulphur fuel in combination with a scrubber. • Compliant fuel causes air pollution, which is still a big problem, and production of compliant fuel has higher CO2 emissions. The removal of sulphur with a scrubber is a much more efficient solution than doing it in a refinery. • We evaluated the environmental impact of the use high sulphur fuel

with scrubber technology as the most environmentally friendly. On balancing the above points, we decided as a group to install scrubbers and use high sulphur fuel. The investment we have made is clear, and through installing scrubbers, we have eliminated a lot of risks, e.g. risks of price on transport costs in the future and of incompatible low sulphur fuels. For instance, if you blend them, what is going to happen? What chemicals will end up in LSF and could result in engine damage breakdown in the future? The decision we made was from both a risk management and environmental perspective. How did Spliethoff help prepare its customers for rising costs associated with IMO 2020 compliance? What feedback have you received from shippers? We noticed in the past half year that this is becoming important, so we made an animation on our

imo 2020 website explaining our choices to our customers and the wider market. There will be a cost increase for them to be compliant and this will be charged to the customers, which is what we have indicated in articles, letters and animation movies. We are now in discussions on new contracts to cover the costs of compliance. Nobody is happy with paying more, but they understand it is going to happen across the industry. Everyone is discussing this topic and understands what is coming. The ship owner cannot take the full cost of compliance on themselves for buying compliant fuel/ fitting scrubbers, etc., so it is a cost that has to be shared.

ready and prepared to start burning compliant fuel. We have all the procedures in place for this, so the sulphur cap is not our biggest concern going into 2020. The biggest concern for us as a group is what emission trading and emission pricing is going to bring to the industry and how will that affect us? As a shipping company, we embrace the objectives of reduction of emissions by shipping, and we work hard to achieve these, but the biggest question is what the system and regulations will look like. Will it be a taxation or trading scheme and what will the impact be for us? The environmental impacts on the industry are by far the biggest issue going into 2020.

As the industry moves into 2020, what are your biggest concerns? How would you describe the industry outlook for ocean transport in the coming year?

For companies that are less prepared for the IMO 2020 regulation, the change will mean somewhat bigger trouble.

The 2020 sulphur cap has come with a lot of preparation time: companies anticipated the change and are

These vessels will offer to the market a significant DP2 capability combined with a large intake capacity for offshore supply and delivery. The intake will be four to five times higher than current supply vessels can achieve. This investment was prompted by the pipe supply market, with which we have worked with for many years, so the views for future development initiated the decision to order the vessel. These vessels are also very suitable for smaller offshore installation works.

Go Direct or Hire a Global Freight Forwarder? Panalpina Responds An interview with Rafael Vicens, Business Development Director – MENA, DSV Panalpina, who will moderate the debate around this issue at Breakbulk Middle East 2020 You will be moderating a panel at Breakbulk Middle East around game changers in the breakbulk supply chain, including a trend for shippers to bypass forwarders and contract directly with service providers. Is this something your company has experienced? Is this widespread?

Rafael Vicens

Yes, definitely this is something our company has experienced. Shippers bypassing forwarders to go direct to carriers and other service providers

is widespread, but depends on the sector. We see this happening more and more frequently because the market is driven primarily by price. Some clients are already taking this as a rule, and changing the way they are working to in line with this trend. Some EPCs who are working toward this model are no longer giving all of the project responsibility to the forwarder, so they have a huge number of people on the logistics team who

BREAKBULK Breakbulk MIDDLE Middle EAST EastPREVIEW Preview 2020 29


industry game changers are communicating with the shippers and the ocean air carriers and going directly to them for contracts. They then have another team for onshore and one for offshore, which is a different business model than we’ve seen previously. Taking this route means more people, and therefore higher overhead expenses, but it must be working because they continue to work in this structure. It began in the oil & gas sector when the oil price went down, so companies needed to reinvent themselves to remain viable. What factors are influencing a trend to go direct? Price – there is no other point here. From your perspective as an international project forwarder, what are the risks of going direct as well as the benefits of using a trusted forwarder on a large project? By going directly to the carrier, an EPC doesn’t have clear visibility on where the cargo is at each point in time. They can go to Google and put the vessel name in, or there is an application to show where the vessel is located, but under this scenario, an EPC doesn’t have the power or influence over bargaining to go to the carrier and put pressure on them to bring cargo earlier— the freight forwarders do have this power. Freight forwarders are moving millions of tonnes a year, so when they go to a carrier, they will work to bring cargo earlier when necessary because it influences high volumes. There are,

30 Breakbulk Middle 30 BREAKBULK MIDDLE EastEAST Preview PREVIEW 2020 2020

however, some EPCs that have been going directly for five to six years, so they are earning trust and power with carriers. However, it is not the same as the power a global freight forwarder holds. The benefit for clients coming to freight forwarders is that they have one centralized source and therefore can remove the liability and risk if the cargo comes late to the destination. How can project forwarders reposition themselves to remain viable? Because the market is struggling, carriers are going through tough times with a lot of mergers and acquisitions in the marketplace. Carriers are starting to give EPCs the same rates and conditions as they give the forwarders in terms of payments and rates. Previously, ocean carriers would give preferential rates based on volume and preferred payment terms. For example, freight forwarders were getting special treatment such as payment terms before the cargo was offloaded at the destination port (after 30 days of sailing), so the carriers were giving the freight forwarders an extra 30 days buffer to make cash flow. Now the carriers are giving the same payment terms to the EPCs for breakbulk and project cargo. While there is not much of a difference now with the terms for fowarders and EPCs, an important difference remains: the pressure that the freight forwarder can put on the carrier. The EPC doesn’t usually have a team to chase, manage and coordinate the vessel which is why they use a freight forwarder.

Let’s turn to opportunities in the MENA region, your area of expertise. Where are the bright spots? Which sectors hold the most promise? The key sector is renewable energy, solar and wind. Currently in MENA, there are more solar park projects planned, but this is reaching a point where it’s not going to be profitable anymore. At the biggest solar park, Al Maktoum in Dubai, phase 1 sold on 4.5 USD, whereas phase 4 sold on 1.5 USD. (The way that you get awarded on this project is to give a price per KW produced by the solar park.) The future of renewables will be in wind. There is a huge wind project taking place in Saudi Arabia, and the developer was awarded between Masdar and EDF. By 2021, 120 wind turbines will be installed in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. The country will need to install 30 GW of energy coming only from renewables. In Abu Dhabi, there is another solar park underway that will be the biggest in the world. In addition to renewables, there are also desalination plants built on modular designs for seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) happening throughout Saudi Arabia, UAE and Egypt. We cannot forget about oil & gas where the biggest project is BAPCO in Bahrain, along with a four-train LNG facility by Qatar Petroleum in Qatar.

Höegh Autoliners Weighs in on Carrier, Forwarder, EPC Relationship An interview with Finn Roden, Head of Sales Middle East, Höegh Autoliners, who will represent a carrier’s perspective at the debate session.

Finn Roden

You will be representing the carrier’s perspective on a panel around breakbulk supply chain disruptors. One trend that seems to be causing some upheaval is EPCs and other shippers who are choosing to go direct to service providers, instead of using a project forwarder. What are your views on this subject? What are the pros and cons for Höegh Autoliners and other carriers? As a ro-ro carrier, a lot of our contracts involve direct relationships already, not on the project cargo side, but more frequently on the OEM side. For some of the EPCs, they have teams that go directly to carriers for larger assignments. Our objective as a ro-ro carrier is not to miss any opportunities,

Register at middleeast.breakbulk.com

so we want to make sure we are in contact with the forwarder or client directly. We have lost out on cargo by as little as 10 to 20 centimeters in height, so if the prospective customer could have been involved from an earlier time, and directly with the EPC, they could have saved the freight forwarder and EPC a lot of money on transportation by making slight alterations in the manufacturing process to fit the size requirements. This speaks to the importance of communication and ability to collaborate with the EPC as well as the forwarder. We are a port-to-port vessel operator, so we don’t get involved in the logistics, customs, etc. Nor do we involve ourselves in the collaboration and coordination with the other asset players such as heavy haulers or crane operators. This means we don’t offer the full supply chain visibility that the forwarders do. The ocean carrier sector itself has seen quite a bit of consolidation in recent years. Will this continue or will the sector stabilize? What is your business outlook for 2020? Operational optimization is really the key now because rates are not coming up to levels that are sustainable or

what we would hope for. The ocean carrier sector, whether it be project carriers, MPV or ro-ro, will remain dynamic over the coming year. According to recent media, it is clear that large MPV operators are in a lot of turmoil right now. Based on that, there will be a state of flux around in the coming year which has been the never-ending story here for the past few years. We have been cautiously optimistic for two to three years now on the business outlook for the Middle East and the GCC in particular. After the oil price crash of 2015, it has never rebounded to a high level which has contributed to a slow rebound. There is some optimism, but it’s offset by geopolitical challenges in the region. The visions of the GCC countries, such as Saudi Vision 2030 and Oman Vision 2040 are interesting to follow to see what these investments bring to the table. It will be very interesting to see what the Saudi Aramco IPO infusion of cash will bring to Saudi development and project execution. The IPO is an optimistic sign for sure! We will continue to optimize and wait for opportunities.

What It Takes to Win a Logistics Contract

from Larsen Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering, the Middle East’s Top-ranked EPC An interview with Dharmendra Gangrade, Head of Logistics for Larsen Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) who will represent an EPC shipper’s perspective at the debate session.

Dharmendra Gangrade

You will be representing the shipper’s perspective on a panel focused on the changing role of the project forwarder at our Breakbulk Middle East conference in February. Does LTHE consider going direct to its transport providers? Under what circumstances does this become an option? At LTHE, we follow a mixed approach to engage the logistics service

providers (LSPs). The decision is driven by project needs, as well as cost and service considerations. Our major operations are in India and the Middle East where logistics operations are still complex and a web of services is required to complete the shipment. Therefore, we prefer to engage established and reputed freight forwarders to ensure smooth coordination. However, for large sail-away operations and super over dimensional cargo (ODC) shipments, we do engage directly with transport providers. What would a project forwarder have to provide to win your business? LTHE strongly believes in service performance, which supersedes cost consideration among equally competitive and established LSPs. We expect our LSP to be progressive and tech-driven for the track and trace of cargo and also HSE compliant on all required parameters.

About Larsen Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) LTHE has been a dominant EPC player in India and the Middle East for the oil & gas sector, ranked as the No. 1 EPC contractor in the Middle East by Oil & Gas Middle East magazine, a leading publication focused on the upstream oil and gas industry in the region. Last year, LTHE was ranked second in the prestigious list. LTHE is currently executing many large-scale projects in India, the Middle East (mainly in Kuwait, UAE, Oman and KSA) and Algeria with clients like Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Hindustan Petroleum and Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (HPCL), IndianOil, Bharat Petroleum, Cairn Energy, Linde, Adani LNG in India and Saudi Aramco, Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Sonatrach in Middle East and Africa to name a few.

DP World Plays Pivotal Role in Expo 2020

BoxBay will allow ports to increase their container storage capabilities by up to 200 percent, and greatly increase efficiency in sorting and retrieving containers, according to DP World.

As the official Premier Global Trade Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, DP World’s role is to ensure the smooth and steady flow of everything the Expo needs, from the Al Wasl Dome to raw materials needed for construction.

“With our network of 150 businesses in 45 countries, including Dubai’s flagship Jebel Ali Port, DP World will play an integral role in fulfilling the supply-chain needs of the largest event ever held in the Arab world, which will host 192 nations,” DP World Group Chairman & CEO Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said. “It will benefit future generations for years to come, long after the event has ended by introducing young minds to career

And of course, DP World will have its own pavilion at Expo 2020 around the theme “Making Trade Flow”—an appropriate one for a global port and terminal operator whose aim is to set the standard for technological and logistical capabilities. The pavilion will feature many groundbreaking technologies, including DP World’s Cargospeed, the Hyperlooppowered technology that will allow them to move cargo at phenomenal speeds. For instance, it would take Cargospeed just over an hour to travel from Paris to Rome, half the time of a passenger jet. BoxBay will also be on display, the high-rise container storage system that will revolutionize global supply chains.

To learn more about Al Faris Group and its involvement in Expo 2020, visit stand C50 at Breakbulk Middle East 2020.

In the run-up to Expo 2020, Al Faris has lifted and installed steel structures measuring up to 46 meters in length at the Expo 2020 Stadium in Dubai. The weight of each unit ranged from 8 tonnes to 55 tonnes. Due to the long working radius of 132 meters during the lifting operations, Al Faris used a 1,000-tonne capacity Liebherr crawler crane. Some of the challenges of the project included a limited area for the crane to be positioned and time constraints for the assembly and dismantling of the crane. Moving to another Expo 2020 project, Al Faris then used its Liebherr 750-tonne all terrain mobile cranes to lift and install the oculus structure at the center of the UAE pavilion roof. 38 Breakbulk Middle East Preview 2020

Middle Eastern countries have in recent times been heavily reliant on petroleumbased economies are now planning for the future and diversifying away from oil and gas revenues. As part of that diversification, they are pushing major investment into developing their maritime infrastructures. Despite the Middle East economies accounting for less than 3 percent of global GDP, its ports handle approximately 20 percent of global seaborne trade. This is the result of both geographic advantages and wellexecuted investments. The ports are located at the intersection of several trade routes and serve as hubs for other ports in the region and beyond. In recent years, Middle Eastern ports have invested in building high quality, large capacity infrastructure, which successfully serve the large cargo volumes flowing through the region. Inward investment from terminal operators, shipping lines and foreign states has seen companies such as MSC, COSCO, Port of Rotterdam and Port of

Register at middleeast.breakbulk.com

Antwerp invest heavily in partnerships to develop new ports and take long term developmental concessions in others. The construction of larger ships to handle more trade volumes has also driven this trend. Whether it is Vale class bulk carriers or Ultra Large Container ships, there is more interest in developing hub ports and catering to the mega-ships. These ports, especially those with bulk and breakbulk facilities need to be close to the exporters and receivers. In order to move these products efficiently, almost all regional governments have recognized that they can encourage a higher volume of destination calls by investing to enhance connections between ports and inland business. They are investing in inland distribution infrastructure such as enhanced road networks and railways, which will allow them to capture greater value from their strategic locations. While this is positive for each country individually, the main challenge moving forward will be how to avoid overcapacity and under-utilization of the growing number of major ports within a limited geographical area.

Country in the Spotlight: Saudi Arabia

Yanbu Commercial Port is considered one of the oldest ports overlooking the Red Sea and is the main gateway for the holy city of Madinah and the neighbouring areas. It is a natural port protected by land from the north and by coral reefs from south and southeast. A modern network of roads connects the port to the holy cities of Makkah and Medina, which makes it the most important strategic seaport for the holy city of Madinah, Al-Qassim region, and a maritime gateway for trading to and from those promising economic areas. The port’s facilities, berths and services were recently expanded, turning Yanbu Commercial Port into a hub that accommodates ships with up to 14-meter drafts. The port’s entrance’s length is ranges from 210-250 meters and the length of the internal channel is about one nautical mile. There is a development and replacement plan for cargo handling equipment to reach the international level for all marine services offered by the port. Yanbu Commercial Port handles a high demand for bulk grain and animal feed from the Al Madina and Al Qassim provinces, industrial raw materials for Industrial City in Yanbu, as well as a variety of other cargoes. In the future, we plan to extend the port’s business to new markets in neighboring countries in Africa and the GCC, according to the port’s director, Capt. Ali Salem Almehwari.

of 16 meters, and 212,000m² of storage yard area. It also widened its turning basin to 650 meters and dredged the port’s approach channel, turning basin and berths to 14 meters. Today, construction of the most advanced security system for the port is in progress. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. A project for dredging the port’s approach channel, turning basin and berths to a depth of 16 meters is in the bidding process. This project will enable Yanbu Commercial Port to receive larger vessels. We expect the project will be completed by the end of 2021.

As part of its recent expansion, the port added two multipurpose berths with a total length of 900 meters and a depth

Shaping the Future of Maritime and Logistics

One Woman at a Time Five of the industry’s most influential female leaders highlight the importance of having more women in the industry, touch on their journeys and discuss how to minimize the gender gap. With more than 125 million people working in the maritime and logistics sectors, only 2% of this workforce are women. While strides have been made to boost this figure, these industries remain dominated by men. However, female leaders continue to do their part to pave the way for future generations of women.

It is also why I am so passionate about the work which we do at AWIMA, and why I encourage young females like myself to put themselves out there and chase their goals relentlessly.” Be an ambassador of goodwill Al Malek is not the only female Emirati working to change the narrative on female inclusion and growth within Below: H.E.

Her colleague, Dr. Aysha Al Busmait, Director of Government Communications at the Federal Transport Authority for Land and Maritime (FTA), was recently appointed as the first Emirati woman to be named International Maritime Organization (IMO) Goodwill Maritime Ambassador. “In comparison to the Western world, I think it’s fair to say that the Arab world has been a little slower in embracing women in leadership roles,” Al Busmait said. “However, the UAE has done an excellent job in providing support and resources for women to not only progress, but to flourish. The wise leadership of our country has a vision for the UAE to be the leading nation by 2071, and female leaders will undeniably be an integral part of achieving this objective.

As a frequent business traveler, Moloobhoy has observed a variety of company cultures. “It has always puzzled me when organizations are unable to see the significance of women in the workplace.

Being a mother of two, when the time came for me to make a decision on whether I should pursue my dream or not, I found it difficult to decide but ultimately chose to just go for it. “Overcoming the odds to become the first certified female Emirati captain, as well as gaining acceptance from a culture that has traditionally resisted women working outside the home (or in less conservative roles), were driving forces behind my motivation to reach for the stars without reservation. While the journey hasn’t been without its challenges, navigating the rough tides of juggling career and family have been well worth it.

Research shows that Fortune 500 companies with higher representation of women on boards financially outperform companies with fewer women on their boards. Furthermore, gender-diverse teams have higher sales and profits compared to male-dominated teams. These findings can apply to each of our industry’s sectors. Don’t fear technology Technology plays a vital role in today’s companies. For instance, the digitalization of ports is underway and those ports that succeed, will in part, attribute their success to technology. Dr. Noura Al Dhaheri, CEO of Maqta Gateway has embraced technology with foresight, constantly evolving her company’s tech-based offerings.

Locals Recommend: Where to Eat, Relax and Shop in Dubai

Effat Mostafa

Executive Director, Tactics Media and Managing Editor, Marasi News, Award winner of “Best Maritime Media 2019”

Dubai is known to be a tourist hub in the Middle East with many places to go, sights to see, and restaurants to enjoy. At Breakbulk Middle East, we recognize this and want both our regional and international exhibitors and guests to indulge in all the city has to offer. We asked our local public relations team to recommend their favorites — places favored by their government and maritime sector clients.

La Mer Dubai

45 2 A St, Jumeirah, Dubai lamerdubai.ae/en At La Mer Dubai, visitors have the opportunity to eat and shop while experiencing a world-class beachfront developed by Meraas with a view of Port Rashid, named after Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum. La Mer is a great destination for everyone, stretching out into the ocean from the prestigious Jumeirah 1 neighborhood, the breath-taking destination promises to be a true Dubai experience. There are many restaurants to choose from and here are two of our favorites.

ZouZou ZouZou features Lebanese and Turkish cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a vibrant setting. Guests can enjoy their meal outside with a view of the ocean. Do try the signature ZouZou mixed platter, hummus, fried calamari, and of course, for dessert, baklava ice cream and Turkish tea. This is definitely an experience you don’t want to miss.

OSH A central Asian and Middle Eastern restaurant, OSH serves Uzbek cuisine and has both indoor and outdoor seating with a rooftop view of La Mer. OSH organizes an Arabian Night every Wednesday where a DJ plays Oriental and international hits. Considering our event ends on the 26th of February — a Wednesday — OSH would be a perfect place to celebrate with your new connections in the industry. A must try dish at this Uzbek inspired restaurant is the Osh Chovhona, an Uzbek plov cooked with marinated lamb pieces, garlic, onions, all in lazar rice and served with salad. For dessert, their Anna Pavlova — named after the Russian ballerina — is a must.

Al Seef

Umm Hurair 1, Al Seef St, Dubai alseef.ae/en Nowadays Dubai is known to be a modern metropolis, but you won’t want to miss the places that highlight the roots and culture of the UAE, in particular, the region’s maritime history. Head to Al Seef, a 1.8-kilometre waterfront promenade designed to reflect the role the natural waterway Dubai Creek has played in shaping the culture and heritage of the city. Al Seef has a marina with 56 berths for private yachts, a traditional souk, floating markets and a plaza that hosts events and activities along the water’s edge. You can also sail across the Dubai Creek aboard a ferry or abra and experience where Dubai’s maritime industry began. Hungry? Try these local recommendations:

Al Fanar Seafood Restaurant Your visit to Dubai will not be complete until you’ve tried one of our distinctive Emirati restaurants. Al Fanar Seafood Restaurant and Market boasts charming architecture and authentic Emirati flavors. Diners select the seafood of their choice and Al Fanar’s culinary masters will infuse it with traditional flavors for diners to enjoy while overlooking the creek. Some of the restaurant’s must-tries are the Hobool, a deep-fried fish roe served with spicy lime and tomato dip (a favorite among Emiratis), and the Robyan Mashwi, freshly caught and grilled seasoned jumbo shrimp.

Times of Arabia For a broader Arabian and Middle Eastern foodie experience, try Times of Arabia. Draped in dark purple, the restaurant exudes a royal vibe. At any Middle Eastern restaurant, the mixed grill is a must-have, but it’s exceptional at Times of Arabia. This dish is best served along with appetizers such as hummus, mutabal (roasted eggplant dip), fatoush, and chicken liver maritinated in a zesty sauce. For dessert, the kanafeh is the perfect combination of crispy and soft with a sweet syrup.

Queen Elizabeth 2

Mina Rashid, P.O Box 6769, Dubai qe2.com The QE2 is a monumental destination steeped in British heritage. Docked permanently at Dubai’s Mina Rashid, the QE2 has a storied history spanning 50 years. In her lifetime, the QE2 completed 1,400 voyages, sailed some 6 million nautical miles and entertained almost 2.5 million passengers. She served as a troopship in the Falkland War of 1982 and completed 25 tours around the world. The QE2 was retired in 2008 and joined Dubai as a unique attraction with what is now a 13-deck hotel, dining, entertainment and events venue.

The Pavilion Located on the lower aft deck of the QE2, The Pavilion offers an al fresco dining experience with the Mediterranean as its backdrop. Commanding breathtaking views of the Mina Rashid Yacht Club and Dubai’s glittering skyline beyond, it offers a seasonal menu of fresh Aegean delicacies for lunch and dinner. The Pavilion features signature dishes for sharing including the Thalassina Sta Karvouna fresh seafood platter and the Greek Charcuterie Board.

Lido Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch, Lido presents an international buffet on the quarter deck. The restaurant has been restored to offer a chic setting with large floor to ceiling windows and marble flooring. The breakfast buffet offers a hearty selection of continental delicacies including fruit, cheeses and yogurts, freshly baked pastries, live egg stations, hot breakfast items and Arabic delicacies, while lunch is a combination of international buffet or à la carte favorites. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays, the Lido dinner buffet features a wide selection of international dishes. On Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the Lido transforms into a Culinary World Cruise Series with Indian, Asian, Arabic and Mediterranean themed nights.

Arabian Tea House

Bastakiya Opposite Musalla Post Office Al Fahidi St., Dubai arabianteahouse.net A journey into Dubai’s past could well begin through the door of a quaint tea house in the Al Fahidi historical neighborhood, once known as Al Bastakiya. As you step into the Arabian Tea House (although old-timers would still prefer to call it the Basta Art Café), you are transported into the old times, authentic style with turquoise benches, white rattan chairs, lace curtains and beautiful flowers, enjoying your cup of gahwa (traditional Arabic coffee) in the shade of an old tree. The food is traditional Arabic and Emirati, served family-style. Arabian Tea House is one of the few authentic examples Dubai has of a life gone by, when her people would meet and take refuge in tea houses, not just to escape the heat of the day but to bond with each other, relax and talk business—just right for Breakbulk Middle East attendees. Insider tip: if you have to wait for your table (it’s worth it!), use the time to explore the adjacent shops and galleries tucked into the building next door.
