   More than 120 Caterpillar Excavators and related parts recently moved through one of two specialty ro-ro berths at JAXPORT’s Blount Island Marine Terminal.
   The Excavators, each weighing an average of 24 metric tons, totaled more than 6 million pounds of cargo.
   The high and heavy equipment was imported by U.S. flag ocean carrier Liberty Global Logistics, with Hansen Shipping Agency Inc. serving as the freight forwarder.
   The Caterpillars were driven off the ship individually and moved to JAXPORT’s dedicated high and heavy staging area immediately adjacent to the berth.
   The equipment will be loaded onto specialized trailers and transported to Caterpillar distributors through the U.S. Southeast by Hansen Specialized Transportation, the domestic transport division of Hansen Shipping Agency.

We believe that the [container] industry’s supply-demand balance will benefit from a reduced appetite for ultra-large container vessels among the major carriers, some of which now have their eyes fixed on a bigger prize of becoming global logistics integrators.
Spot container rates from Shanghai to North Europe stood at $906 per TEU as of Feb. 15, while rates from Shanghai to the Mediterranean totaled $920 per TEU, down 5.6 percent and 4.4 percent, respectively, from a week prior, according to the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index.
