Ocean Freight & the Port of Boston
Ocean freight carriers traveling through the Suez and Panama Canals in the years ahead in the century of the environment are expected to stop in the Port of Boston's Conley Container Terminal in South Boston in greater and greater numbers. The Massachusetts Port Authority has been looking at the future and with the volume of cargo that needs to be shipped worldwide expected to double by 2020 and the planned expansion of the Panama Canal, that will according to sources in the worldwide ocean freight shipping industry mean bigger ocean freight carriers will be able to call on the port facilities of the Port of Boston and the Conley Container Terminal, it was time to purchase a pair of low-profile ship-to-shore cranes and four rubber-tired gantry yard cranes to expand services for the expected ships and increased volumes of ocean freight.

In order to find the new cranes they wanted the Port of Boston decided to reach out to the Port of Oakland in California for help. Sources indicate that a deal has been reached between these two America ports and a pair of low-profile ship-to-shore cranes and four rubber-tired gantry yard cranes apparently left on long journey on a barge that will see them arrive in the Port of Boston in about a months time. Sources around the worldwide ocean freight carrier industry indicate that the Port of Boston is paying around US$15 million for the used-cranes and that once the six new cranes arrive and are installed the Conley Container Terminal will have a total of six dockside cranes and a total of 12 rubber-tired gantry yard cranes. They also indicate that these six new cranes are expected to increase efficiency and flexibility of the ocean freight shipping services provided by the Port of Boston and the Conley Container Terminal in the days ahead in the century of the environment.

Ocean Freight Carrier Dispute
The sinking of the ocean freight carrier Prestige in Spanish territorial waters was in the news in the United States recently as United States District Court ruled that Houston-based American Bureau of Shipping can't be sued by Spain over the sinking and any damage. Spain had been seeking $1 billion from the American Bureau of Shipping over the sinking of the ocean freight carrier Prestige, who according to sources indicated that ABS had certified the tanker for design, structure, and condition, and had alleged during the case that the American Bureau of Shipping had been reckless in certifying the single-hulled tanker Prestige as fit to carry fuel.

United States District Judge Laura Taylor Swain refused the suit by Spain in a Manhattan court recently, which according to sources surrounding this affair is the second time she has thrown this particular case out of court. This particular time the judge disagreed with the findings of Spain's legal system in this particular case and ruled that the American Bureau of Shipping can't be sued by Spain over this particular affair. Great news for the American Bureau of Shipping, which is most likely glad to have this affair behind them, and possibly a few others surrounding this affair that has been in the news of late.

Sources around the worldwide ocean freight carrier industry indicate that the owner of the Prestige was apparently not named as a defendant in the suit that was recently brought in United States District Court by Spain. They also indicate that the Prestige was chartered by a Swiss company at the time of its sinking, but there was no indication whether it was believed this company was involved in this legal affair in United States District Court.
