    Boeing has delivered Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner jet to Eva Air, Taiwanese airline.

    This is the first of 20 super-efficient 787-10s the carrier plans to use on high-density routes within Asia later this summer. EVA Air's 787-10 can serve 342 passengers in a two-class configuration, which is 38 more seats than EVA Air's 787-9 Dreamliner.

    The jet is the largest member of the fuel-efficient and passenger-pleasing Dreamliner family.

    The airline, which is also celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, already operates a fleet of four 787-9 Dreamliners.

    "The 787 Dreamliner has become the flagship of our fleet and we will leverage the airplane's unrivaled fuel efficiency, reliability and size to operate high-density markets in Asia," said Steve Lin, chairman of EVA Air.

    "The 787-10 offers around 15 percent more cabin space and cargo capacity compared to our existing 787-9s and this added capability will allow us to explore new opportunities for future growth in the emerging markets within Asia Pacific."

    "With their 777-300ERs, 787-9s and now the 787-10, EVA Air will have an incredible widebody family to serve its passengers and grow its international network for many years to come," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing of The Boeing Company.

    Powered by a suite of new technologies and a revolutionary design, the 787-10 set a new benchmark for fuel efficiency and operating economics when it entered commercial service last year.

    The airplane allows operators to achieve 25 percent better fuel efficiency per seat compared to the previous airplanes in its class. Onboard the airline's new 787 Dreamliner, passengers can experience EVA Air's new Royal Laurel class seats designed by Designworks, a BMW Group company.

    EVA Air serves international routes with approximately 565 weekly flights.

    The Port of Le Havre (HAROPA-Le Havre) is teaming up with the French Development Agency (AFD) to help ports in developing countries.

    The new partnership is aimed at tapping into HAROPA-Le Havre’s experience, know-how and expertise as France’s biggest container handler that is also a major oil port, ro-ro traffic facilitator and cruise port.

    It will build on ongoing cooperation between the port, AFD and the Indonesian Directorate General of Sea Transportation. This project, financed by AFD, is aimed at strengthening the abilities of Indonesian port authorities to improve the efficiency of the management in Indonesian ports.

    This partnership, financed by the AFD, gathers Le Havre’s expertise through six training sessions delivered in Le Havre and Jakarta. The aim is to strengthen the knowledge and skills of Indonesian managers in the management and operation of their respective ports. It brings together representatives of some 30 Indonesian port authorities from the main ports in the huge archipelago.
    The programme started in 2018 and will end in late 2019. Three intensive training and exchange sessions are being organised in Jakarta and three in Le Havre in order to "immerse the participants as close as possible to the leading port for the external trade of France."

    The current training and exchange meeting started today (24th June) in Le Havre and will finish on Friday, 28th June. The next one will run from October 28th to November 9th in Surabaya.

    Topics include port and maritime economy, role and competence of a port in the logistics chain, information systems, performance indicators and environmental sustainability, including modal shift of inland moves.

    Swiss-based pharma airfreight container solutions provider SkyCell has expanded partnership with AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) to include SkyCell line of passive containers.

    Hence, Russian-all cargo airline has sealed a deal with SkyCell for the lease of all types of SkyCell’s temperature-controlled containers to meet the rising demand in pharmaceutical shipments. At ABC, the global volume for such high-value shipments doubled in Q1 2019 to around 3,500 tonnes.

SkyCell data-collection enablement supports our intention to move further with ‘Internet of Things’ penetration into the industry and step aside from peer-to-peer data sharing to information transparency and availability. On top of this, it fosters an extra piece of mind for our customers to have real-time data in one click,” said Fedor Novikov, Deputy general director, Products, AirBridgeCargo Airlines.

    SFAN (Société Foncière Axe Nord) is to build a 42,000 m2 warehouse and a high bay cool store with space for 66,000 pallets under controlled temperature in the Port of Dunkirk.

    The investments will be made in the Logistics Zone in the western part of the port, close to the ferry terminal and the container terminal. SFAN has had a presence in the port for a number of years and has a programme worth €60M to build latest generation warehouses and DCs there.

    The new 42,000 m2 ambient warehouse will be built in the International Logistics Zone. Under a separate agreement with the port authority, the high-bay reefer cross-docking facility, with an overall height of 43m, will be built in the Port Rapide area, directly between the container (Terminal de Flandres) and ferry terminals. This is aimed at the agri-food industry.

    On 20th June, the Port of Dunkirk will officially inaugurate the 500m long extension to the deep water quay at Terminal de Flandres. The terminal’s STS cranes were long-travelled along the new rails into this extension for the first time on 19th April. The linear quay is now 1,785m long, of which almost 1,000m is dredged to -17.30m, so the terminal can now accommodate two mega container vessels in excess of 400m LOA simultaneously at any state of the tide.

    The United States has decided to invest USD 292.7 million through the new Port Infrastructure Development Program with the aim of developing the country’s ports.

    According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the new program aims to support public coastal ports by improving the safety, efficiency, or reliability of goods movement into, out of, or within a port.

    “This major investment in the Port Infrastructure Development Program will help strengthen, modernize, and improve our country’s maritime systems and gateway ports,” Elaine L. Chao, U.S. Transportation Secretary, said.

    Investments in port transportation infrastructure would be awarded on a competitive basis for projects located either within the boundary of a coastal seaport, or outside the boundary of a coastal seaport, and directly relate to port operations or to an intermodal connection to a port.

    The USD 292.7 million funding includes USD 92.7 million to be invested in 15 coastal seaports that handled the greatest number of loaded foreign and domestic TEUs in 2016.

    The deadline to submit an application for the Port Infrastructure Development Program is September 22, 2019.

    AirBridgeCargo Airlines and Unilode Aviation Solutions have deepened their long-standing Unit Load Device (ULD) management partnership with the rollout of the world's first digitised main deck containers.

    The containers, which are manufactured by Nordisk Aviation Products, have been designed with the usage of the latest technology in fire barriers for aviation and are equipped with a Transmitting Portable Electronic Device (TPEDs) based on Unilode's Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 5.0) technology.

    The containers enable to track the location of the ULD and the cargo being carried in the container, and transmit status updates on various parameters such as temperature, humidity, shock and light.

    The first half of the new digitised AMA/AMD fire-resistant container fleet will be delivered by Unilode by the end of June and the rest in September to give AirBridgeCargo Airlines time to test and introduce them gradually into its operations.

    "TPED is the kind of technology that tightly aligns with our customers' expectations, especially when it comes to transportation of special cargoes - pharmaceutical products, perishable goods, valuables, and others," highlighted Sergey Lazarev, general director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines.

    "At the end of 2018 AirBridgeCargo Airlines and Unilode announced their collaboration for the extensive usage of TPEDs for pallets and containers. The introduction of the digitised AMA/AMD fire-resistant main deck containers is another stage of both companies' joint efforts to bring enhanced IoT solutions into the air cargo industry with the purpose to simplify the data-sharing process and make it more transparent and reliable for all stakeholders in the aviation value chain.

    “The rollout of Unilode's reader infrastructure in our repair network and our customers' key hubs is progressing according to our plans and all the benefits of Unilode's digital transformation project will soon be enjoyed by both Unilode and its customers," said Benoit Dumont, CEO of Unilode Aviation Solutions.

    Construction of a new terminal at the Swedish Port of Gothenburg reached a new milestone in April this year as the first phase of water-based work wrapped up.

    The work involved the sinking of 1,500 piles into the seabed, down to bedrock level, in the lead-up to construction of the rock embankments around the Arendal bay.

    The next phase in the development of the 220,000 square meter terminal will be the leveling of the hill to the south of the site to free up new terminal space.

    Being built at Arendal, directly beside the ro-ro terminals, the new facility is expected to be completed by 2025 after works got underway in autumn 2018.

    “It is extremely exciting to finally get off the mark in the biggest development project at the port since the 1970s,” Magnus Kårestedt, Gothenburg Port Authority chief executive, said prior to commencement of phase one last autumn.

    “The terminal is a crucial aspect of the port’s long-term expansion plans and will further strengthen Gothenburg as the Nordic logistics capital.”

    The new facility will have 460 meters of quay with a draught of 12 meters alongside it. Certain sections of the terminals are expected to be brought into use before the official opening in 2025.
