International Freight on Marine Highways of US
International firms in the business of overseas auto shipping will be interested in the latest news concerning the use of the marine highway system of the United States to help deliver goods to destination on time and budget. There has been a little momentum gained during the past weeks and months in America on developing a marine highway service between the Port of Oakland and inland ports at Sacramento and Stockton, California. This momentum has apparently been noticed by environmental groups in the United States and around the world concerned about the growth in the use of marine highways for the business of ro-ro shipping, and the possible environmental problems this growth could result in during the months and years ahead.

The environmental agencies looking at this news have introduced a new report focused mainly on the prospect of the proposed marine highway between the Port of Oakland and inland ports at Sacramento and Stockton, California. According to the people that are concerned about the growth in marine highways and some ocean freight forwarders, the use of low-emission engines aboard vessels and on shoreside freight handling equipment will help reduce air pollution, and we should look at implementing these ideas during the weeks and months ahead in the United States of America.

The environmental groups also believe the transport industry of the United States of America should look at using technology that reduces underwater noise from propeller cavitation, the formation of gas bubbles, and equipment on transport ships in order to minimize disruption of marine mammal navigation systems. This should help reduce any possible damage to marine life due to transport, according to transport experts, and help us gain more momentum in the desire to use marine highways in the years ahead.

Roro Shipping at Port of Prince Rupert
International transport companies in the ro-ro business will be interested in the latest news concerning the volume of cargo being handled by the container port of Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Sources in the international business of transporting containers to destination on time and budget indicate that the volume of containers going through the Port of Prince Rupert increased by 29.5 percent during 2010, over the volumes experienced during 2009. Sources in the business of shipping a car overseas watching this news also indicate that during 2011 we can probably expect to see a similar, if not greater, increase in the number of containers moving through the Port of Prince Rupert.

According to sources in the international car shipping business the Port of Prince Rupert has only had the container transport services in the port in operation for about three years, and at present the container transport services in the port are only running at about 50 percent capacity. This certainly gives the Port of Prince Rupert plenty of room to increase container transport movements through the port in 2011, and we can certainly expect the officials at the port to be at work trying to find more customers to use the available container transport services of the port in the months ahead.

At the present moment, no new information has surfaced concerning the possible shipping lines and shippers that might be using the container transport services of the Port of Prince Rupert in the months ahead. We can certainly expect to hear something on this front in the weeks ahead and will pass on any additional news on this affair to you, when it arrives.
