   Swiss-based Mediterranean Shipping Company has signed a contract with MacGregor and Guangzhou Wenchong Dockyard to upgrade the cargo systems on six 16,000-TEU containerships it owns and operates.
    The Cargo Boost orders will be booked into MacGregor’s second quarter 2019 order intake and will be implemented during drydocking in 2020, MacGregor said Wednesday in a press release. The parties have agreed to not disclose any further contractual details.
    MacGregor, which is part of the Finnish cargo-handling machinery company Cargotec, and MSC worked together to develop the cargo system solution for the ships.
    “The objective was to determine the best solution for the operating profile and deliver a modern, efficient and environmentally friendly upgraded cargo system,” said Magnus Sjöberg, MacGregor’s senior vice president of cargo handling and RoRo, in a statement.

I am of the opinion that shippers should pray that lines are allowed to continue to operate alliances.

The fastest liner transit (excluding transshipments) from China to the Netherlands is from Yantian to Rotterdam at 23 days, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Country to Country Transit Analysis by Service tool.
