    Marine terminals at the Port of Long Beach handled a total of 3.87 million TEUs during the first three months of 2018, marking its best-ever first quarter.

    Loaded imports were up by 7.3 percent at 267,824 TEUs, while exports surged by 18.3% to 142,419 TEUs. The Port of Long Beach added that its empties increased by 21.9 percent, reaching 165,015 TEUs.

    The port’s March throughput reached 575,258 TEUs, an increase of 13.8 percent compared to 505,382 TEUs seen in the same month last year.

    “Our March cargo jumped despite the shipping slowdown during the Lunar New Year holiday in China,” Mario Cordero, Port of Long Beach Executive Director, said.

    “One of the most encouraging signs throughout this surge in cargo last year and this year is the operational efficiency at our marine terminals. We are handling record levels of cargo with no delays,” Cordero added.

    Crane rental company Karl Scholl has taken delivery of a LTM 1070-4.2 mobile crane from Liebherr.

    The 70-tonne capacity crane, which has a 50 m telescopic boom, will replace an older 60-tonne capacity machine in Karl Scholl's fleet.

    Karl Scholl's Andreas Merkel said: "The LTM 1070-4.2 with a gross weight of 48 tonnes delivers benefits for road licensing and is therefore extremely flexible in use. The new ballast distribution now also makes it possible to reduce the gross weight to below 40 tonnes. That is very helpful for us since more and more bridges are now restricted to a maximum weight of 40 tonnes."

    The crane will be used for assembling prefabricated concrete structures and hoisting air conditioning systems onto high buildings, as well as handling the heavy modules assembled duing the construction of transformer stations.

    Based in Heidelberg, Germany, Karl Scholl operates 15 mobile cranes with lifting capacities from 30 to 300 tonnes.

    Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) has joined forces with Turkish conglomerate Oyak to build and operate a finished-car logistics terminal in Yarimca port near Istanbul.

    The company signed an agreement with Oyak, the Turkish Armed Forces’ pension fund, in Istanbul on April 5.

    As informed, the new joint venture will be owned and operated together with Oyak Denizcilik ve Liman İşletmeleri A.Ş. (Oyak Port), a port-management subsidiary of Oyak.

    “The new joint venture will be positioned to respond to demand in an area where finished-car imports and exports are expected to rise,” NYK said in a statement.

    The new terminal, which will have a yard area of about 180,000 square meters, will be the first large terminal that is located in the suburbs of Istanbul and dedicated to finished cars, according to NYK.

    Operations are scheduled to commence in mid-2019.

    The investment is worth USD 110 million, Reuters reported.
