Storm is coming: Firms brace for transport disruption post shipping shakeup 25.6.2019
London: US furniture company RC Willey Home Furnishings is so concerned that new global clean air rules will cause transport disruption that it brought forward the shipment of arm chairs and sofas from China by two months. The tougher regulations, set by the United Nations shipping agency, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), come into force on Jan 1. Costs will rise for ships towards the end of this year and there will be a knock on effect for trucks and other transporters that move goods around the world. For shipping companies it is the biggest shakeup in decades and adds to the pressures of an economic slowdown and the threat of an escalating trade war between the United States and China. While consumers are not expected to pay more for goods, higher transport bills and disruption to company deliveries could further dent economic growth. Ship owners must cut sulphur emissions to 0.5 per cent from 3.5 per cent. They can do this by using low-sulphur fuel, installing exhaust gas cleaning ...

Shaky foundations of building advertisements 25.6.2019
Just 5 minutes from the metro station, schools, hospitals and malls."For the prospective investors, there's a different carrot. "Assured rental income of thirty to forty thousand rupees a month for a 3BHK flat."This is usually an oral assurance to expedite those stagewise payments by gullible buyers. Splash a few pictures of furnished and swanky model apartments on billboards and newspaper jacket advertisements and the lure of new residential projects at far flung areas is complete. What these advertisements conveniently don't clarify is whether the 5 minute distance is under normal traffic conditions or a helicopter or VVIP convoy! Or whether there are water and sewerage connections. There is invariably no squeak on the steep maintenance costs in such areas. Neither is there any clarity on whether the fat rental income is the prevailing rate in that area or a fancy expected figure churned out by a glib talking salesman. For a reality check, you just need to visit certain gated ...

Holding the passenger to ransom 25.6.2019
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Inter State Bus Owners Association (ISBOA) throw rules for contract carriers to the winds, officials turn a blind eye, and it is the passengers who are virtually at the mercy of the operators. Transport minister A. K. Saseendran even complains that the officials refuse to take action against the erring operators. However, the operators on Monday launched a strike, alleging harassment by the motor vehicles department (MVD). The reconciliatory talks Mr Saseendran had called at his office at secretariat on Monday evening failed as he maintained that the raid, 'Operation Night Riders' by the MVD officials, will continue. Ever since Kallada Travels, one of the leading contract carrier operators, was embroiled in a major controversy where its staff brutally assaulted three of its passengers in April this year, MVD officials conducted raids. It was on April 24, the day after the assault was reported that the MVD kicked off 'Operation Night Riders' aimed at keeping a track on ...
