    SERVICE LEVEL

    FUTURE

  • - Fleet of Open Hatch breakbulk vessels built for lifespan service to selected industries, specialised to handle high value unitised cargo such as:

    - Wood pulp

    - Plywood / lumber

    - Nonferrous metals

    - Project cargoes, steel products

    - Vessels are tailor made for cost efficient cargo care and handling with minimum risk of claims for damage

    THE OPEN HATCH SEGMENT

  • - Providing:

    Parcel cargo concept, offering semi-liner service to industrial

    customers

    Short / medium and long term Contracts of Affreightment (COA)

    Proven reliable service and commitment

    - COA portfolio with several customers

    Larger pulp mills

    Consolidation among pulp producers

    Large customers require transportation service / frequency to all

    main areas

    - Leading to consolidation in shipping – critical mass / large fleet of vessels

    OPEN HATCH SEGMENT

  • OPEN HATCH - SUPPLY SIDE TRENDS

    • The Open Hatch Gantry crane fleet is «shrinking» year by year and is currently 99 vessels above 30,000 DWT with 23 vessels older than 25 years.

    • The Open Hatch Jib crane fleet is growing and is currently 128 vessels above 30,000 dwt (6 mill dwt).

    • The Semi Open Hatch Jib crane fleet above 30,000 dwt equals 486 vessels ( 19 mill dwt).

  • OPEN HATCH - SUPPLY SIDE TRENDS

    • Newbuildings have «economy of scale» due to larger cargo intake and less investment cost as a result of a softer newbuilding market and less expensive jib cranes

    • Only G2Ocean and Saga Welco can deliver a frequent parcel service to all destinations from East Coast South America

    • PanOcean and Cosco have successfully secured long term full ship contracts.

    • Containers offer service from a few large ports

  • Increasing demand for market pulp in terms of volume and TMD (ton mile demand)

    Main end user growth market is Asia (China)

    Large expansion of hardwood pulp capacity in S. America 2020-22

    Larger pulp mills / bigger customers / longer term shipping contracts

    Pulp producers invest billions $$$ in production capacity and the product needs to be transported to the markets across the world – need reliable long term transport providers / owners

    DEMAND SIDE TRENDS

  • The main success factors and key performance indicators historically provided by the Open Hatch segment to the market pulp industry for its product to the port of discharge have been among the following:

    - Owners focused on serving the market pulp industry

    - Competitive terms

    - Reliability of service / scheduling

    - Flexibility in volume / areas, covering all main markets

    - Predictable transit times

    - Minimal cargo claims

    Fulfilment of transportation requirements

    WHAT LEVEL OF SERVICE IS EXPECTED?

  • The main front haul market for the Open Hatch vessels has traditionally been closely linked to the market pulp industry through long term Contracts of Affreightment, which have provided customers with the necessary vessel capacity and high quality service, and the owners with employment of the vessels at reasonable return on investment.

    Large capital investments in new suitable vessels will be required in order to provide the necessary capacity to provide for:

    1) The new transportation requirements coming on stream in the near future

    2) To renew the aging part of the Open Hatch fleet

    OPEN HATCH / MARKET PULP - FUTURE?

  • The investment in new vessel capacity will only be financially feasible through a combination of long term commitments from customers and at terms which give owners a reasonable return on investment.

    How do the market pulp producers value service from ship owners who will be willing to invest in specialised vessels with optimum cargo care, efficient cargo handling and supported by a highly skilled and professional organisation providing fulfilment of stringent transportation requirements?

    The answer is important in order for ship owners to evaluate the feasibility of investment in the right type of vessels to secure future deep sea transportation capacity combined with the expected level of service.

    OPEN HATCH / MARKET PULP - FUTURE?

  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION!
