Shipping losses from Superstorm Sandy at $1B, says consultant

Cargo Business Newswire
Monday, November 5, 2012
Top Story


Superstorm Sandy cost an estimated $1 billion in damages to the Northeast cargo industry, said an industry consultant on Saturday.

"It looks like we're losing close to $80 million a day on that," said Charles Clowdis, managing director for transportation and consulting services at IHS Global Insight. "Through yesterday, we have probably lost close to $1 billion on cargo delays."

Railroads and trucking companies are beginning to service the region again. The container terminals at the Port of New York and New Jersey remained closed through Saturday, with vessels rerouting to other ports.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said on Monday that the Port Elizabeth Terminal had opened with the arrival of vessels at the Maher and APM terminals. The Port Authority also said that the Port Newark Container Terminal and the Global Terminal in Jersey City, NJ, would open for business on Nov. 5 with ship arrivals expected at both facilities by that night...

Jones Act waiver gets fuel to Northeast, gas and heating oil prices drop

Cargo Business Newswire
Monday, November 5, 2012


After the U.S. waived shipping requirements to get much needed fuel into the Northeast, prices for gasoline and heating oil fell.

The Department of Homeland Security waived the Jones Act so that more vessels could carry fuel from the Gulf Coast to the East Coast. The Jones Act normally requires shipping companies calling between U.S. ports to use U.S.- flagged vessels only

Colonial Pipeline Co. said its main line that delivers to New Jersey and terminals around New York Harbor resumed deliveries on Saturday.

"The supply situation is going to improve quite a bit," said Andy Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates LLC in Houston. "Some of the terminals in Linden have full power. Buckeye restored to full power last night."

Atlas Supplies Critical Fuel To Superstorm Sandy Relief


Day 7 of our Superstorm Sandy support. We now have 56 trucks deployed and more than 70 people assisting! Fuel is in high demand.


As of Saturday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m., Atlas Oil has deployed 34 fuel trucks, over 200,000 gallons of fuel and more than 30 drivers and support personnel to the Superstorm Sandy relief effort as fuel continues to be in critically short supply on the east coast. The team has set up a local command center camp in Pinebrook, New Jersey. Trucks and fuel are being dispatched to the hardest hit areas of the storm, including New York (including Manhattan and the Bronx areas) and New Jersey.

The company is on stand- by to provide additional resources as needed to aid the FEMA restoration efforts.

Tank Container Depots, New Jersey to South Carolina

Tank Container Depot Directory

INTERMODAL TANK container shipping operations continued to grow in North America over the past year. The annual Bulk Transporter Directory of Tank Container Depots is the most complete listing of bulk container storage facilities in the United States, and also provides listings for Canada and Mexico.
In compiling the directory, we have tried to list only those companies that have actual storage depot operations. The operators specialize in both the handling and storage of ISO containers. For instance, we try not to list carriers that provide only cargo container drayage service.
A couple of abbreviations are used in the section covering container-handling machines. SC stands for straddle carrier, and TLSL means top-lifting side-loader.

Yo OP!

Just started raining/sleeting in Brooklyn. Gonna be a rough ride, methinks.

Tremendous amount of cargo trucks heading towards 278 (gawanus expressway) right now. Bumper to bumper...first time i've seen trucks since the storm. Someone must have been able to unload.

Also lots of private cars now leaving south side of Brooklyn...no surprise there....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27229486


Yo Brooklyn!

Thats great news about the trucks. I spoke with a friend who used to be a shipping broker and most of the carbo that goes over to LI and your area lands at Bayonne. From what I have seen there were 3 Container ships that landed there.

It must be pretty amazing to watch the supply in person like that after figuring out what we have. If there happen to be Italian Subs, LTO, SPO w/extra oil and vinegar, send me one!! I have been eating bagels ever since you brought them up but Thomas's Bagels just don't cut it.

Hope the storm isn't too bad on you.

NY HARBOR UPDATE

So the Storm hasn't stopped anything. Right now we have two more Container Ships coming in. One of them, BUSAN EXPRESS is a Panamax.

8721 MAX TEUs.

Only two more container ships sitting out in the staging area right now.

One Oil Tanker Docked in NJ with a maximium of 10,000,000 gallons of goo, so it is starting to trickle in a little more.

Sadly, Trains are still Cut Off though.

[link to www.nscorp.com]

From Waterlily's found article:

"The shipping lanes have mostly reopened, except for a few areas around Arthur Kill south of the Goethals Bridge, and Bay Ridge and Red Hook channels, said Justin Ward, spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers."

As of Saturday, container vessels weren't yet allowed to wait for the terminals to reopen. "If you don't have an approved berth, you can't come in and sit for a week and wait for something to open," Ward says.

They really have diverted to a lot of places:

Philly, Halifax(Canada), Baltimore, Norfolk.

That will take some time to get it back to where it was origionally supposed to go and the trains still being down doesn't help.

Yo! Did you guys see this?

Gasoline Rationing Comes To New York

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24937833


From NYdailynews:

Eight of the 57 terminals in Sandy's path were still shuttered Thursday and the Department of Energy noted in a weekly report that refinery productivity in the region had dropped from 81% to 58.5%.
Essentially that means gas supply to the New York City region has been reduced by almost 25%, explained Gregg Laskoski, a spokesman for the online consumer group Gasbuddy.com.

and

Only 62 percent of service stations in the New York City area had supply to sell on Wednesday, down from 66 percent on Tuesday

I remember 75% of the service stations working at the end of last week. So the situation is getting worse.

And when come without your car, how do you prove you have an odd/even liscence?

It's because this measure is in place to stop people from filling up their portable gas tanks to heat up their homes.

WTF is the point of odd/even gas days? To make a 2 mile line into a 1 mile line?

Keep an eye as these restrictions are NEVER LIFTED.

Thats great info. I had figured at max 40% drop in supply so at least it is a little less gloomy doomy than I thought.

Should certainly see higher prices moving forward through the end of the year in the area.

NEW YORK HARBOR UPDATE

It looks like Cargo ships are streaming in at a fairly good pace now. Still not a whole lot to the Brooklyn side of things but cargo supplies are getting in smoothly.

On the Oil Tanker side, only 2 tankers docked today at this point with a maximum of about 15m gallons of Goo. Still way below normal imports.

TRAINS ARE STILL CUTOFF

Moving onto DAY 12 now.

This article explains why I saw TWO pet supply trucks making deliveries today! Yay! Saw a bit more delivery trucks on the road today. But very few private cars. Someone told me at a shelter, that they have drivers and cars to transport donated items, but they need gas for the cars/trucks. It's a big problem for them.

Traffic on expressway 278 one of the main arteries in/out of Manhattan and Long Island has picked up going into the city...this evening was gridlock. But traffic going out of the city all day is very thin.

Per the article below: Commercial vehicles, emergency vehicles, buses and paratransit vehicles, medical doctor plates and vehicles licensed by the city's Taxi and Limousine Commission are exempt.

Good man. I think the response on your side has been terrible. I am gaining a lot more respect for Cuomo. He defintely seems to be grabbing the bull by the horns while Bloomberg has tea Uptown trying to figure out how to keep his 16oz max Soda plan in place with all of this going on.

Went to a few local stores today, in an area very hard hit by the storm. Here is what I learned: Stores that prepared (moved stuff to higher shelves etc.,.) didn't lose much inventory, and re-opened relatively quickly. One strip mall, four stores: Big food store opened about five days ago (they had a massive cleanup), small pizza place and drugstore opened last week. (They moved their stuff out of the way, saved most of their inventory). Discount store; didn't prepare and didn't start cleanup immediately. They are still closed, still cleaning and now have to deal with mold issues, so the EPA is involved in their cleanup.

My point BTW is this: We all had time to prepare for this. Some did, many didn't.
