Trade Slump Sends Tremors to Shipping Industry

2016 - 09 - 03

The bankruptcy of Hanjin, the biggest shipping firm in Korea, though may cause a rise of shipping cost in the short term, will not alter the fact that 30% more space on ships than cargo to fill it amid a world-wide trading slump.


擁有101艘貨櫃輪、運力全球第8位、韓國最大的航運企業 Hanjin(韓進)的破產,儘管在短期內讓運費上漲,但仍舊動搖不了這個鐵的事實:

因為全球貿易衰退導致之艙位比待運貨物多30%
(所以陽明和長榮別開心太早,低迷的運費還是無解的)

What the collapse of South Korea’s Hanjin Shipping Co. won’t likely do is solve the shipping industry’s biggest problem: 30% more space on ships than cargo to fill it amid a world-wide trading slump.

再加上,Hanjin 的船裡,有61艘是租來的,所以一旦破產,這些船就再繼續為其他航商效力,貨櫃輪的供給量不會有顯著的改變。

而Hanjin的破產,初步最大的衝擊,應該是對美國和其他地區的零售業者的;他們,正等著假期銷售旺季的貨到港。然而,韓國、中國、美國、加拿大、西班牙以及其他地方的港口以及貨運處理業者,由於會擔心收不到錢,已經拒絕幫 Hanjin 理貨了。受影響的,目前有45艘還在海上的船,上頭總共有超過50萬個貨櫃。

The biggest initial hit could come to retailers in the U.S. and elsewhere waiting on goods for the holidays. Not knowing whether they would get paid, ports and handlers from South Korea to China, the U.S., Canada, Spain and elsewhere have refused to handle its cargo. That has stranded 45 ships at sea, according to the company, and more than half a million containers.

India is Not the Savior for hTC

India, a country of 1.3 billion people but with $1000 GDP per capita, has been defined as low-income economy by Wold Bank. 鴻海在印度投資上看200億美元   「……國外媒體報導,鴻海董事長郭台銘已抵達印度,除與印度新創企業會面,也將拜訪印度官員;鴻海相繼攜手阿里巴巴、小米、軟銀前進印度投資,凸顯印度在政策引領印度製造(Made in India)以外,當地內需市場擴張,同步帶動科技業軟硬整合的新契機。印度媒體hindustantimes.com等昨(9)日引述消息人士的談話指出,鴻海在印度投資規模上看200億美元(約新台幣6,246億元),郭董率領40人的代表團前往印度考察,今天計劃拜訪印度通訊部長RaviShankar Prasad,有機會簽訂資訊合作案。…… http://udn.com/news/story/7240/1046894 印度有13億人,和中國有拼,但人均GDP僅不過美元一千多,也被世界銀行定義為低收入經濟體。目前它的feature phone仍占六成,smartphone四成,內需市場的成長潛力雖不待言,但絕大多數人民所需用的手機都處於hTC不會有利潤的極低價格帶。 講低價,自然不能不講到鴻海。新任總理莫迪之競選承諾「印度製造、數位印度、潔淨印度」,配上鴻海在印度大佈局的思惟以及郭董這次揮軍印度的深度,遠遠不是只想「賣手機」的hTC所能想像。 當然,這個英語為官方語言之一的國家同樣有富裕階層,但他們心目中智慧機的高端產品,也是目前市占率還小贏hTC的Apple, Sony, 以及早已佈局在當地設了三座研發實驗室總共僱用一萬多名工程師掌握近三成市場的Samsung。 至於hTC目前在印度主攻的中階機呢?現在低價高規已成智慧機裡的全球主流;而這個擠得要命的區間裡有的是小米華為中興華碩,現在又加上了個大投資結合官方與印度業者會玩血洗市場策略的鴻海。
