LESLIE MEREDITH MARKETING DIRECTOR lmeredith@breakbulk.com

Hello from Salt Lake City It’s a bluebird day in Salt Lake City—that means bright blue skies following a snowstorm. It’s a day when skiers and snowboarders get up at the crack of dawn and head for the slopes to be the first to ski the fresh powder. Into the office by 10 is the norm, and not even your boss will blink an eye (she’s probably just come down from Snowbird herself). The post-storm brightness makes me feel optimistic for our industry in 2018. We know there are more storms ahead, but project markets around the world are showing signs of a rebound. Optimism — at least of the cautious brand — was a common theme at our events and grew as the year progressed from Shanghai and Antwerp in the spring to Kuala Lumpur and Houston in the fall. “In the last six months, we haven’t seen it get any worse, so we take a small bit of confidence in that,” Justin Archard, Director Commercial of SAL Heavy Lift, said at Breakbulk China in mid-March. “Overall, we’re a little bit happier than we were at the same time last year.” About a month later, Allison Aschman, Ph.D., Independent Project Analysis and keynote speaker at Breakbulk Europe, identified a number of promising markets, including Europe. “We’re talking to several clients about some pretty large capital investments in Europe, mainly in what we call the safe countries, like Germany,” she said. In Kuala Lumpur in early September, an entire panel was devoted to the lessons learned around the RAPID project, a US$27 billion investment and Petronas’ largest. The project is scheduled to come online in 2019, but its impact will last long beyond start-up. “The project will be a catalyst for growth in the surrounding area,” KC Low from Johar Port said. By the time we arrived in Houston, the prognosis for the next few years was at the top of all of our minds. I took the opportunity to ask our panel on carrier risk — who have been hit very hard by market conditions — what their outlook was for the project cargo market: bearish, bullish or neutral. The vote was unanimous, at least after another 18 months or so of uncertainty.

“We’ve finally reached bottom and we see signals that our industry will start pulling itself out of this mess,” Ed Bastian, BBC Chartering. “While the short term is not so great, we believe over the next five years, we’ll see long-term, lasting gigaprojects in evolving markets,” Brent Patterson, Blue Water Shipping. “We have an 18-month neutral period ahead of us, but as of 2019 we are bullish,” Frank Fischer, Intermarine. “Over the next 18 months, I am in neutral — it can’t get any worse. Beyond that, I am definitely bullish — our industry will be in a better place,” Ulrich Ulrichs, Rickmers-Line. “The next year is going to be a little tough, but hopefully projects will be awarded,” Jake Swanson, CB&I, said. He’s far more confident two or three years down the road. “Going into 2020, I’m very optimistic that things will be much better.” While blue skies might arrive earlier or later depending on the market and the sector, they are coming. I invite you to join us in 2018 at one or more of our Breakbulk events, and do drop by Breakbulk Studios so we can chat in person. Please join me in thanking my team members Patrick Romero and Alec Monson who are dedicated to making your experience with Breakbulk the best it can be. Here’s to shared success in 2018!

It was snowing that night in Istanbul and it was not possible to carry the cargo directly with truck due to dimensions. We drove through the heavy snow to the nearest shipyard to take the ferry. There was no available barge, and as a solution, we found a car carrier ferry and cut some parts of the ferry off for a safe loading and discharging operation.

TOP TAKEAWAYS FROM 2017 BREAKBULK EVENT CONFERENCES Breakbulk has completed another slate of international events, bringing together the industrial project supply chain in Shanghai, Antwerp, Kuala Lumpur and Houston. Before we look ahead to a bigger 2018 – and a first-time gathering in Bremen and a return to Abu Dhabi – let’s take a look back at the 2017 events. BREAKBULK CHINA Breakbulk returned to Shanghai for its sixth annual event in China, and options and diversity were key topics among panel sessions. Exploring niche markets, cooperating with container lines and expanding “horizontally” are some of the creative business options worth pursuing for breakbulk carriers dedicated to China in today’s challenging environment, said Zhou Bin, general manager of Sinotrans & CSC Group subsidiary Shanghai Changhang Shipping Co. Ltd., during a keynote speech.

Zhou expressed “cautious optimism” for multipurpose vessel cargo demand in 2017, thanks to rising exports of China-made steel and the nation’s EPC-focused Belt and Road overseas commerce initiative. Long in the shadows of their containerized cousins, breakbulk and heavy-lift shippers are finding themselves belles of the ball, with increased competition for their cargoes from container lines and roll-on, roll-off carriers, speakers during a carrier panel agreed. “Actually, it’s a very happy situation for me as a freight forwarder specializing in the project business,” said Thomas Wang of COSCO Project Logistics.


Carrier panelists agreed each option – container, roll-on, roll-off and multipurpose – had something to offer, even when the market begins to rebound. Speakers included David Lloreda Calero of BBC Chartering, Michael Juhler of Maersk Line, Oskar Orstadius of Höegh Autoliners, Jum Gyu Kim of Super Rack Shipping and moderator Miroslav Jakab of Fluor. As China is by far the world’s largest auto market, ro-ro carriers have a base upon which to build increasing diversity in cargoes – from buses to construction equipment – to remain successful in the huge market. Representatives from Höegh Autoliners Ltd. China (Bob Tang), Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (Rider Liu) predicted that the Chinese market will continue to strengthen in coming years. Participants representing three major shippers that rely on global breakbulk services – Technip China (Frank Zhang), PowerChina (Morgan Meng) and Morimatsu China (Shao Bin) – mentioned damage prevention ideas and other suggestions for project efficiency while working with freight forwarders. Key to success is efficient, communicative freight forwarders. In addition, Billy Wong of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council provided a trade outlook for China, cross-border challenges were discussed and micro-seminars explored Incoterms and packing and lashing. Breakbulk also held another successful Education Day with support from industry executives.

BREAKBULK EUROPE The 12th edition of Breakbulk Europe said farewell to Antwerp – at least for now, as the event’s recent annual home goes under major renovation. But the 2017 provided absorbing content one last time before moving on to Bremen. Industry needs to find a way back to workable multilateralism to overcome the threat of rising populism and the impact that might have on the breakbulk sector, said Ana Stanič, founder and director of UK-based E&A Law. During a keynote, she warned of a “rough ride” ahead as industry adapts to a new way of multilateralism that addresses the loss in confidence in international institutions.

asset problems, cost overruns and because sales of product degrade from the time the projects are sanctioned through the first few years after startup, Aschman said. Further, with the downturn, companies have been forced to cut back. Older stalwarts are retiring, leaving a “dearth of midcareer professionals.” To compensate, owners and EPCs have turned more to the contractors, but the long-term solution is to maintain that expertise in-house, she said. Such expected expertise includes data-driven intelligence, as customer expectations change. Companies in the project cargo industry might admit to being scared about what digitalization means, but that doesn’t stop customers expecting them to do something useful with data, Tim Paridaens of Deloitte Consulting. However, the industry faces problems on the data side, particularly with data gaps, quality and latency. “Most of the data we use today is for diagnostics, so it is focused on the past,” added Caterpillar’s Dieter Degryse. Project cargo carriers need to urgently ramp up their conversations with shippers about the 2020 deadline for the switch to low-sulfur marine fuels worldwide. From Jan. 1, 2020, International Maritime Organization regulations require that the sulfur limit in the heavy fuel oils used as bunker fuel worldwide be reduced from 3.5 percent to no more than 0.5 percent. One speaker described the incoming legislation as a “brutal shock” to the industry. Shippers complain that they have been largely left in the dark on what impact this will have on project cargo moves.

While the project industry faces a severe downturn in available work, cargo owners and engineering, procurement and construction companies further impact their bottom line by failing to standardize their operations, according to a keynote presentation by Allison J Aschman of IPA Capital Solutions. Beyond the continual fallout from the financial crisis, a range of political and trade issues have buffeted the project owners and EPC companies. Businesses are not gaining the value they expect from projects, due to schedule slippage,

a panel that included Pravin Rajakrishna of Caterpillar, Colin MacIssac of F.H. Bertling Logistics, Antonio C. Jataas of JCG Philippines and Peter Bouwhuis of XELLZ. Meanwhile, a panel of carrier executives, all based in Singapore, tried to make sense of the current environment, while navigating a way forward while facing an onslaught from outside and within. Henrik T. Pedersen, COO, BBC Chartering Singapore, noted the recent spate of mergers and acquisitions – along with bankruptcies – has been necessary to remove capacity from the market and narrow competition, especially with a lack of scrapping of capacity. The unique event was recognized by the governments of Malaysia and Singapore, and partnered with the Federation of Malaysian Freight Forwarders and host port, Port Klang.

BREAKBULK SOUTHEAST ASIA In September, Breakbulk held its first-ever event in Southeast Asia, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Breakbulk Southeast Asia provided a unique opportunity to bring together a project industry benefitting from significant growth among Association of Southeast Asian Nations countries. Despite that growth, the ASEAN region still faces significant challenges in securing and maintaining services for its manufacturers and engineering, procurement and construction service companies, conference attendees learned. For instance, the project industry continues to run at a deficit in talent, compensation and return on mega-projects investment, trends that are unsustainable, said Rolando Gächter, regional director, Independent Project Analysis Asia-Pacific. Project owners are also failing to get the proper bang for their buck, further impacting partners up and down the industrial project supply chain, Gächter said during a keynote address. And while the ASEAN seemed to defy the overall global downturn, its nations are still served largely on a transshipment basis, and its cargo owners must entice carriers to consistently serve the market. Boosting services was emphasized during

In its 28th year, Breakbulk Americas transcended its perennial value as an industry unifying event, as the post-Hurricane Harvey event proved cathartic for a project industry highly focused around the historic storm’s epicenter. Beyond Houston, the world is in a “transformative moment” in power and relationships within and among nations, which is guiding trade patterns, and potentially reducing globalization and broad-based supply chains, said Rodger Baker, vice president of strategic analysis for Stratfor. “The world system is not stable. There is no center of gravity” among the leading powers of the U.S., European Union and China, he said during a keynote address at Breakbulk Americas. Baker framed his discussion looking at the balance of global power at specific, recent times. Transformative moments aren’t just economic and political; breakbulk is embracing technology and innovation. Bechtel’s Steven “Spo” Spoljaric, and his panel took attendees on an interactive journey using a HoloLens to allow the audience to view a large component in a mixed reality. The display demonstrated how stakeholders in different parts of the world could view and interact over realistic models of project cargoes. John Lusty of Siemens said the shipper was already using HoloLenses in its own manufacturing internally and for customers. However, technological leaps such as the HoloLens, mixed reality and drones bring challenges, specifically with staffing

skills. Lusty said project cargo companies need to be comfortable with technology to attract the right people. Spoljaric went one stage further and urged EPCs and forwarders to “step up with the engineers and speak the same language.” In a separate session, Zandol Whited at PeopleReady said specialist recruiters are meeting the challenge of attracting and retaining millennials in the breakbulk and heavy-lift industries. “Gone are the days of technology and trade schools,” Whited said. “Workforce from those outlets has aged. We have to

figure out how to appeal to the younger audience.” These new hires among engineering, procurement and construction companies need to make better use of the data and know-how available from project cargo forwarders to help modernize the sector, said Bertling’s John Hark. Meanwhile Kathy Canaan of Fluor warned that project cargo compliance cannot and should not be delegated to a thirdparty agent or freight forwarder. An increasingly complex sanctions environment was adding to compliance challenges with list-based sanctions on the rise and more complicated than before, she said.
