   German liner carrier Hapag-Lloyd said it has successfully contained an oil leak from one of its containerships tied up at the Global Marine New York Container Terminal.
    According to the carrier, a roughly 15 inch-by-15 inch hole was discovered in the hull of the Dublin Express during unloading operations on Thursday evening, through which oil had escaped. The hole was patched that night.
    To contain the spilled oil, the carrier cast containment booms around the ship for cleanup.
    Hapag-Lloyd did not say what caused the damage to the ship’s hull.

   “It is still too early to make an accurate assessment of the damage,” the carrier said in a press release on Friday afternoon. “Hapag-Lloyd is working closely with the relevant authorities and interested parties to minimize the impact on people and the environment.”

Slightly more than 70 percent of [U.S.] warehouse space now under construction is being built on speculation, meaning that developers started construction before securing occupants for their buildings. National metrics support that approach. 

The United States' major retail container ports handled 1.75 million TEUs in April, which was a 6.9% year-over-year increase, according to the Global Port Tracker.
