Air freight prices surging in a “perfect storm”
"The very brief recap of the politics of this economic crisis is that the major indices the algorithms that drive them took great heart day from indications that Congress and the White House have come to terms on a trillion plus dollar economic. Rescue package. Rescue is probably a better word than stimulus just as random observation because industry by industry indications are that there's not much activity left to stimulate restaurants and hospitality MOMS and pops throughout this Konami big companies to like airlines. So let us talk trade as a way into our news today because with airlines all but shutting down air freight is getting. Oh so much. More expensive commercial airlines are trying to meet the demand but that transformation from passengers packages is not as simple. As you might think marketplace's Sabrina sure starts us off. The price increases for airfreight. Internationally are insane alone to London to. Us lades wandering twenty eight percent and along the front foot to us laid out of nine percent increase over the last week. Peter Stallion A freight derivatives broker. At F I S. The prices have surged because the capacity available in passenger. There's no longer running on a lot of international. Flights passenger jets are also carrying cargo.

Toast the new crane-operator he's very slow. Visually it swam Bam Bam Bam Bam Bam Joe Harris a spokesman for the Port Virginia in Norfolk says the cranes are part of a new eight hundred million dollar expansion here. The third busiest port on the east coast. There's a lot of moving parts here so many pieces to it. There there are no incidental moves. Everything is planned. It's truly like a like a watch but the corona virus has upended the precision planning here and at other ports throughout the US and around the world the global supply chain was interrupted when Beijing imposed travel restrictions China Manufacturing slowed. The docks were quiet. Chinese exports ground to a halt as a result. Cargo ships are being idled in dozens of sailings have been cancelled says John Reinhardt. The CEO of the Port of Virginia. There've been over one hundred twenty ships that we're gonNA come to the United States. That have been blanked. So that means they're not sailing for the periods of late. February march and April. You could be talking anywhere from fifteen to thirty percent of the freight that normally flows in and out of this country will not be happening. This slowdown is affecting shipping.

Long Beach is the busiest complex in the country. Labar says one in every five jobs in Long Beach is directly or indirectly related to the port. Andy says businesses are down sixty to seventy percent since the beginning of February. But Lebar says there is a flicker of hope. The Corona virus is starting to ease up in China. We're hearing many of our customers. That manufacturing is starting to pick back up in China that the ports in China especially the main large port. Shanghai is now getting back to full operations and the hope is that in a week or two maybe we can start to dig ourselves out of this and get back to full operations but Labar says there is a challenge ahead to consider whether the corona virus spreading across the US will affect port operations here as it did in China.

Cruise Industry Hit Hard By Coronavirus Outbreak Effects
"As you can imagine. The Corona virus has hit the cruise ship. Industry really hard. The federal government is advising people not to go on a cruise and passengers who got stuck on ships with an outbreak of shared experiences of being quarantined in tiny rooms. Not Knowing when they'd be able to go home as NPR's Chris. Arnold reports people who've booked a cruiser. Now trying to figure out what to do. Linda Nell Bandy is scheduled to go on a cruise ship in April to Bermuda. She and her husband recently got married. They're combining their families and taking their five teenagers on. This cruise was supposed to be their first big trip together. The kids were excited. He's super excited. And it was a lot of build up over the last couple of months talking about it planning it and then current buyers the trip was a big expense six thousand dollars so as the outbreak spread. They've been grappling with what to do. They didn't want to wreck. A great vacation of the odds. Were really small that there even be a problem definitely agonizing being a bad parent. Because you're you're buying into panic or hysteria or you being a bad parent because you're bringing into a situation that maybe in retrospect you be like what was I thinking but now many cruise ship companies are trying to reassure customers that they don't need to panic and cancel now. They can wait to see what happens with this outbreak and they can even cancel just a few days before their crews and get credit for another trip later. Lifted Obama and got an email explaining that from Norwegian cruise. Line this past weekend it was a relief and definitely left us with a very warm and fuzzy feeling towards the Cruise. Line as far as what? The right decision is Dr Anthony. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He spoke to NPR on this program yesterday and said since elderly people and people with underlying health problems are particularly vulnerable to this corona virus. Those people should take special precautions. You don't travel you. Don't go to very crowded places particularly you. Don't get on a cruise ship because what we've seen what happened with the cruise ship. What's happened so far is several cruise ships outbreaks and had to quarantine passengers some stricken passengers died after contracting the virus. The State Department issued an advisory on Sunday saying people in general quote should not travel by cruise ship. I was very shocked and disappointed. I think it's it's too far extreme. Stewart Sheron is worked in the cruising travel industry for thirty years and books cruises for people through his website called the cruise guy. He says to warn elderly people in those medical conditions seems reasonable but to tell everybody to stay off cruise ships. Says he'd go on a cruise today right now. There are hundreds of ships sailing around the world that are not having any issues. The Cruise Line Industry Association says the ships are taking special precautions including screening people for a fever before allowing them to start a cruise and some people are deciding that the risk seems small and his worth taking others are of course canceling or trying to Ashley. Manning is a nurse practitioner in Knoxville Tennessee. She's decided to cancel her. Crew's coming up in ten days to the Mexican Riviera on Carnival cruise line. I've called Delta canceled our flights. They were non-refundable tickets. They automatically refunded everything without even a question but getting through the carnival. I was on the phone for about three hours yesterday. Kept calling in. It just never goes to anybody and just as a voice recording and then. It'll disconnect you and you think you're still on the line carnival says it's ramping up staffing but as any seasoned traveler knows when everyone calls it once it's hard to get through so if you are going to cancel your crews. Don't leave it until the very last minute

Fighting Fires with Lt. Sarinya Srisakul, FDNY'S First Asian Woman Firefighter
"We're GONNA introduce guest richest guest. You WanNa take it away. Sure thanks this. We have another righteous guest up. She is the first ever Asian American female firefighter for the New York City. Fire departments and now the first Asian women lieutenant in the near New York City Fire Department. Please welcome Serena's Russa cool so perhaps we usually start off with asking our guests like describe what you do right because sometimes stylised or they're in entrepreneur and you have a title where it's like a firefighter. It's pretty planetary on the surface. But I don't think most people know like what really means. Fighter could you kind of simply due in Lieutenant House? Oh yeah so. I'll talk a little bit about finger. Firefighters I and Lieutenant so as a firefighter besides qualifiers you also do a medical calls for accidents stuck elevators electrical water utility emergencies Water main breaks Anything that doesn't neatly fit in the category of like what? Police officer does usually. It's the Fire Department. See something say something. We show up to that Any weird random rescues anyway that that's the fire department and sounds like is like better better to be safe than sorry kind of situations where you show up fully geared up with the big as like trump and and it's like a cigarette. Yeah our code for when they're smoking weed is it. Smells like incense. It smells like wink. Wink City colitis incense situation. So before you get into the lieutenant part what you were saying you do you guys cover pretty much everything that the police department wouldn't cover a lot with them to you. Yeah so they show up Even medical calls US ambulances and them show up so you obviously had your tenure in that space. So y'all can you describe what that sure basically? I'm just the supervisor so boss the boss there is. You're saying firetruck. There was a fire truck. There's a fire engine. The engine was the difference. Engine has hosing them back. So it's like the shorter rig And so out of fire. Engines stretch the hose line and put the fire out right and it's heavy unwieldy hose so you need a team and they're the ones that need the hydrant right the truck. They have the ladders in the back. So they're the ones that do the ventilation and they do the searches so there have the ladders for the people who are trapped inside. Yeah so and with the I guess. The utility emergencies the engines go to medical emergencies and the trucks go to the stock elevators and water leaks. So that's how we divide up tasks. Yeah so when you look at a rid great Either in an engine or truck. The person who's driving is called a chauffeur and the person next to the show for the officer. And it's either a lieutenant or a captain so in every fire company there's three lieutenants and one captain so I'm a brand new lieutenant so I don't have a permanent station right now. So I'm kind of like a substitute teacher. So whenever any officers sick or on vacation I cover their spot for when they're gone. I'm in North Queens. Which is where I'm assigned So as an officer. I'm a supervisor. Supervise the crew. I'm working with for the day and I do the paperwork for like their how they get paid. People were As a crew during the day. Let's say it's a car accident at the work on that. Cpr Do paperwork on that anything like that. That's the job of the officer to do the paperwork for whatever emergency does and make the decisions Of the best things to do in a fire situation the officers go in with the insight team of the truck and You know you help locate the fire if you're in the truck if you're in the engine then you like hall for whatever needs to happen for the crew to bring in to help fight the fire. Okay got you. I mean thousand foes. Luggage very thorough. There's so many different layers to it. A military base allow paramilitary organization. So we want to rewind a little bit about your beginnings in his career like as Joe mentioned early on the First Asian woman firefighter and ESPN. Y Yes I mean. The FDA wide probably existed for what three four Hundred Years Ono sixty three hundred gifts more than a century. Yes obviously in. Women firefighter in its history. Yes I was the only for a long time. I recently told us a little bit about that. Like what like. What made you decide to do that? I like if you could just kind of explain to us what's What was that like? Yeah it is a good question because it is very different and unique for someone like me to go into this world but I was recruited by my friend who really wanted to be be. A firefighter actually went to school. Down THE STREET FROM HERE. I went to Parsons School of design studying illustration that yeah yeah. It was kind of more Typical route even though. It's atypical or school. But there are other Asian women who are and My Friend Really WanNa be a firefighter was living in San Francisco. Came back to New York When New York was hiring Just want to put a note in New York. Only hires once every four years just crazy? Yeah and you have to be seventeen and a half two older than twenty nine. So he can't be older than twenty years old to take the test so I happen to be twenty one at the time and my friend was like just kind of thought. I was a great job and I never really was exposed to any civil service jobs like my mom was a nurse and my dad like worked at a lake at an office. You know For Asian Shipping Company. And so I didn't really was exposed firefighters cops or anything like that and so I got dragged to this orientation that the fire department was having was first time. I met women firefighters and they showed. It was a really corny presentation They showed us like they. Call us. Sizzle reel fire like Microsoft word. Who SO QUIRKY EVENT CALENDARS NO? Hell no hell no it. Was you know honestly it was looking at the other women and seeing how diverse they were me like? They were like short women's hall when they were League. Normal looking. Women are different than them. If they can do it. You know Addis predisposition thought of what that person looked like right as like a normal person would like firefighter. Thousand Two right after nine eleven. It was right after nine. Eleven and everything in the media was not just a man but a white man And how brave they were and this and that and you know. I guess it was more a fear of like. I don't WanNa die like going to work. It was three hundred forty. Three people died that day and it was like this horrible thing that happened. Everyone's like Kinda shellshocked But then you know they addressed it at Orientation. They said like the trainings really good. You get to help people I went to art school after that. I was in communion organizing worked in the nonprofit world for awhile and you know at the end of the day just wanted to help people The nonprofit world doesn't pay very much and I saw how much firefighters were making union job all the retirement. You Know My pension it's twenty years and retire and I'll say oh I can retire my forties. This is great. You know I was really like bought into a and being the first Asian woman I knew at the time I would have been the first one so that really was appealing to me to to break that barrier so I just like went

"Now let's turn to California's homelessness crisis and new ideas and three cities about how to respond to it in Los Angeles county the high desert city of Lancaster once the ban people from handing out food to homeless people in public spaces but a planned vote on the plan was delayed after a very contentious city council meeting this let me tell you how this works let me tell you how this works I want them out the ordinance would stop people from distributing food on public streets sidewalks parking lots or other public property while the city council may have punted the issue remains on the table vita Marie spoke at Tuesday's meeting and says she's opposed to regulating where people can be given food if you need to be fed if you're getting fat and I don't care what condition you come in you come as you are I've come to where you are and that's why it's important to not regulate this necessarily to parks because we need to go to where the people are some groups would still be allowed to serve meals in public parks with permits but advocates worry fees and fines would deter people from helping Lancaster mayor rex Paris says the money has to come from somewhere where am I going to get the money to fix this problem should we fire all the deputies maybe fire the fire of where where is it do you think this money comes from I mean seriously where were you wait a minute where were you when we tried to pass a tax initiative to take care of the homeless people in Lancaster that field by one sixty five percent sixty five percent meanwhile to the north Oakland city council president is floating the idea of using a cruise ship to house people it opens port and a Tuesday council meeting Rebecca Kaplan says she was contacted by cruise ship company after she raised the idea at an earlier meeting sometimes the words we speak can and do come true and maybe we can have a way to create a thousand housing units overnight with the cruise ship Kaplan says people would be charged for rooms on the ship based on their income she says she'll submit a formal proposal next month but the port of Oakland has thrown cold water on the idea the port says it doesn't have the infrastructure to birth a cruise ship and that their safety and security issues at the federally regulated facility Oakland's homeless population jumped forty seven percent between two thousand and seventeen in January of two thousand and nineteen and across the bay San Francisco's opening a site for people who live in their vehicles to park for up to ninety days the pilot program is the first of its kind in the city the fence parking lot has space for thirty vehicles round the clock security electricity bathrooms and access to showers San Francisco is looking at other sites to expand the

Can Global Shipping Go Zero Carbon?
"You might surprise you that I have not been on a giant shipping vessel. Before what are they like. Yeah I don't vote either. Mattie were ship usually journalists right so I went with a couple of colleagues. Visit this cargo ship in Baltimore. Anything interesting something that was representative of with the industry. Let me tell you. That's extremely large. It's like a cliff rising above you as you drive up to it. Rebecca they they were very welcoming ships. Chief Engineer Alexi Booze Loft gave us a tour of the ship's engine room. Okay what does an engine room looked like. Because I'm picturing like old timey men shoveling coal into a fire. It's very Titanic well there were old timey man but other than that. It's completely different so it has a huge engine the size of multiple city buses. But what I noticed was the smell smell. This is a smelly more guessing oil more humor. Yeah so it. Alexi is currently pointing out that it smells even worse than their than if they were burning gasoline because they're burning heavy fuel oil and there are like rows and rows of tanks and fuel. Oil is really thick and dark. It's like the stuff you put in your car but like on steroids it froze and it covers everything it touches like all the parts of the engine in this thick gunk. And there's so much of it that Alexi. He spends a lot of his daily cleaning components components and he collects all that gunk in fifty five gallon drums of what he calls. SLOP SLOP is never good. Yeah it's it's very gross. So why are we using this stuff. Well it's dirty but gets the job done packs a lot of energy into a relatively small volume and it's really cheap to buy right now. Is there a cleaner fuel. That could provide the same kind of energy sure maybe Some people point to liquefied natural gas that's cleaner than heavy fuel oil although it's still a fossil fuel so you're going to get some greenhouse gas emissions another option could be hydrogen okay hydrogen. I've heard of it. The most common element in our universe. Electrically Yeah you can use it to make electricity without generating any greenhouse gas emissions at all no soot sulfur zero here too gross stuff. None of it and the technology to do that. It's been around for decades called the hydrogen fuel cell. It's so old that at this point it's really safe. We have good regulations to keep the hydrogen safe. What's new and still unproven? Is this idea of putting fuel cells onto ships. Yes and to work out the specifics of how to do that. There's actually a group that's building ship. We're going to another ship leaving Baltimore. We're we're going to cross the country we're going to Oakland I visited this shipyard where there's a ferry under construction that's actually going to be powered by hydrogen fuel cells so no carbon it. It's actually going to be the first coastguard certified hydrogen powered vessel ever in the US. Just pretty cool. So what does this hydrogen-powered in powered boat look like well. When I went to see it earlier this year it was just an aluminum frame? Okay but that's because it was still in a relatively relatively early phase of construction it will look like a ship and in the meantime I got the founder of the company Joepat to show me around and sort of point out where everything was going to be. This is the floor. This is kind of where everybody sits. And then it's everything down from up on the deck when it's done that's where the hydrogen fuel cells. We're going to go okay. So let's walk through the science of how hydrogen fuel cell actually works. Okay so it's nothing like the combustion engine that you're used to in like your car car. In those you burn fuel you combust it to create energy and so what comes out is gross pollution right. It has like sued soot and all sorts of stuff that is not very nice in it right in a fuel cell just converts hydrogen or another fuel directly into electricity through a different reaction so no combustion nobody inning. no-boom exactly know boom. That's like the tagline for fuel cells. But seriously it's super simple. You're just combining oxygen with hydrogen and creating trysofi. You can use that electricity to turn a propeller in this case and you don't get all that nasty stuff right so instead of like a city. Gross rose exhaust. The fuel cell just gives off water and heat exactly so instead of like carbon and gross. Exhausting me out of your tailpipe you just have this this mean moist air and we can condense the water that the fuel cells produce has it goes out the exhaust pipe. The exhaust ask schools down in the water falls out of it. It's like like raining and we collect water and we'll use it for onboard drinking. They're using the water from the exhaust as drinking water. Yeah give me that sweet sweet exhaust water. Yeah sounds delicious right. It's actually to clean. What does that mean you've ever had distilled water? Sure sure yeah. It tastes kind of weird. This is so clean that they'll have to add minerals back into it so it doesn't taste weird okay so this is my question. If hydrogen is so easy like what's why haven't we been doing this already. Well for one thing. Fossil fuels have been really expensive for a really long time really ubiquitous easy easy to get. Don't pay a lot also. Hydrogen can be difficult to store. So there's a barrier to entry there and compared to heavy fuel oil and I really like at this point. It's so interesting that you don't think about it. A lot shipping hydrogen. Like getting it to where you need it to be able to feel things. It's expensive and we don't have great infrastructure for are distributing hydrogen across the country. So obviously building all that would cost money and would take time. Okay what else. Well fuel oil well is dirty but it has a major upside which is that it can pack a lot of energy into every drop. It's got a lot of exactly tons of youth in a very very small space with hydrogen. You get less bang for your buck. You need more of it to get the same amount of power and that's problem because you're on a boat remember so so you don't have unlimited space for a really long time. Engineers had just assumed that you need to get so much. Hydrogen power ship. It wouldn't work. It wouldn't fit but then Joepat and his team what they did with their building on here is this analysis where they found that. Actually it probably is possible to get enough hydrogen onto a ship to power Howard at least for some types of ships some designs. So that's what they're testing here. They have this design. They're going to build a ferry. See if they can prove it works. Gotcha okay so he got to ask is like from a carbon cutting perspective there would definitely be some carbon costs to building all these new ships that would use these fuel cells or like retrofit. The old ones right. Yeah yeah totally retrofitting building ships. It would cost a lot of money. Middle Out of carbon but hydrogen right now. Most of it that's produced in the. US is actually produced using natural gas. So it's not completely clean right putting clean and scare quotes so even though when you're actually using the fuel cells they don't emit carbon to get that hydrogen there is a carbon footprint. Exactly and then we go back to the sort of building the cost of building new technology. This is an example of something that we see across the economy. Right when you want to transition your economy from systems that were more polluting systems that are less polluting. You're in a bind because you have to use the old technology to build the new technology right so this this is just something that comes with the territory and there's a question about well. How cleanly can you build the nuclear technology all right regardless of that like are we really going to be able to scale this up to a point where it would make a big difference? I mean listen. I'm not going to sit here. And guaranteed the entire global shipping. Industry is going to change over to a new fuel. That's what I thought we were. We're doing here. Oh wait sorry I you know I mean. Here's the thing we're talking about. Global warming right emitting greenhouse gases all that pollution. It's creating the eating problems for the shipping industry. There's an incentive for them to scale this back because imagine you run a global shipping company hurricanes are getting more severe just issues one effective table right not great for ships bad for business so there's already a financial incentive to switch over to something and hydrogen appears to be one good bit right. That's why the largest shipping company in the world has made this zero emission. Promise but one company really make that big of a difference. Yeah I think it will and the analysts I talked to you. Think Gobble too because there just aren't that many big shipping companies in the world so when one really big company like Maersk makes this kind of promise if they follow through it could make a really a big dent. One Way to think about it would be like if all of the car manufacturers in North America of a sudden banded together and we're like we're only manufacturing facturing electric cars from now on. Wow Okay right. So that's like a pretty big deal and it seems possible that if this new ferry and other other prototypes can prove that. This is possible the way they'll do. It is using hydrogen.

Digital Economy: The digitisation of trade
"Long before the Internet international trade routes the primary channel for the global spread of information. They've long since been overtaken by international telecommunications networks that today allow packets of data to span the globe in seconds this has helped open up global markets for goods and services to the extent that individual consumers can now purchase goods from the other side of the planet it at the Click of a button. This episode of the podcast examined the impact of digitization on trade in particular. We explore how digital technology is affecting the way goods shipped around around the world. The physical process underpins the global digital economy. We also examined the impact of e commerce on global trade and the role of digitization in the growth of trade services this month. I'm joined by Martin Home Global Head of supply chain management in ECOMMERCE logistics shipping giant Merck by Jenna Brown CEO and CO founder under a supply chain data management start up ship Max by my colleague Christopher Clegg managing editor at global editorial lead for trade and globalization. I started by asking marted. What is what is the current state of digitisation in the shipping industry. I think it's fair to say that the state of digitalization the shipping industries is really is still quite low. It's not on common that the cost of processing the paperwork is higher than the cost of actually moving goods across the world at least that's that's the that's the situation the container shipping space just to give an example in connection with US designing the the trade lanes platform color years ago we gathered all data such documents emails phone calls milestone data etcetera for for a number of shipments and and one of these shipments search was quite typical shipman contain of Avocados from Kenya to the Netherlands required more than two hundred physical documents so so quite a lot of of work on that site having said this. It's also clear that did slice Asian is now taking pace there's very high amount of venture capital missile coming in similize ahead of digitalization of for instance the travel industry and other industries and there's also a lot of initiatives by the incumbents real real time rates now available instant booking confirmations thereby leading playoffs and there's a lot of work on on optimization of operations also using shing a digital tool so it's warhead if it's not been as fast as you might have expected. Why why do you think that is I think it's a learning curve and this industry is has a lot of Sullivan heavy investments traditionally in in and ships and containers and pulse and trucks and so on and and the whole digital side has just not been coming along fast enough AH Essex on Baloney this year I an association was established for actually agreeing on a data standards in the industry and it's also stuff like that that that's been missing that even if you invest you don't know what the standards are going to be. Everybody's waiting for Jolo discussing the standards and and and we haven't been moving ahead as fast as yes we probably could have four or would have expected okay so so jenny. You have a slightly different voltage point. Is that as a starting startup helping shipping companies with their documents. How would you characterize the state digitization. Would you reflect Martin's comments to you the different view yeah. I think in part I think he can break it down a bit more say. I guess we're looking at the kind of communication aspect. I think there's a lot of progress been made in Let's say transactional elements logistics so for example if he want to book a container with a major shipping line there are companies like intra and all at the other end of the spectrum if go and customers the king containers with folders so flexible twelve colnago. DB Schenker Ohio I've invested law in platforms to make that smoother but do you agree with Maltese. Not the biggest pau kind of up for grabs right now which arguably is the highest volume is those operational communications so everything involved in getting something from eight to be and this is where anecdotally when we speak to customers US freight forwarders Mesa them have tried something like using an old edi technology but it's not worked very well because there are no data each stop us so what tends to happen is it tends to end up being a very manual process with emails flying around with with documents attached and I I think that's where Phil's still a little bit stuck in the past right and Jenner your your company in fact shipper Baxter's helped companies with extracting data from from the shipping documents so so so what was the opportunity that you saw what was told you that a new way was possible and how open and receptive have you found organizations to an alternative approach. 'em Yes I mean we actually started out in in the bulk shipping sector we had developed a technology technology stocks and data and structured as from from email communications and we had kind of turned to the A freight forwarding and industry as an additional market and yeah I think we found it's been incredibly receptive because again most of the problems people have is just kind of locked of data standards on there is no way of transmitting information mation from from player wound to play a twenty five so if you can build a technology talk of the infrastructure that already exists an then and just kind of plug and play and feedback into internal systems. What's very well. Why did you think because you both mentioned the issue with standard. Why do you think there haven't been standards in so many other domains. Obviously this is a challenge for all industries to find ways to share information in standard ways but progresses be made so the reason this sector has been so far failed to establish standards. Is it for lack of effort or or too many effort. I honestly don't think it's possible because I think you look at any industry. Where the already strong data standards it is. It is a more transactional well transaction when you're looking at operational logistics. It's a messy process and you've got an industry that is wildly fragmented so you want to take an extremely messy process of wildly fragmented industry industry. We've together by humans and put into one standard. It's it. That's a very daunting task so Martin is possibly the best known shipping company in the world. What impact has digitization had on the company and how have you adapted acted as a result I think at merced purposes we all purpose as facilitating global trade believing that that trading with these other really really generates additional value and prosperity and opportunity fold so of course seeing that actually processing older the the documents and the paperwork work is is more expensive now than shipping the cargo around the world. is something that we feel. we do something about and we actually feel that there's a huge shut which unity for false company so over the last few years we really been been ramping up to take a leading role in this sure and and also to try and get as many of the other players in the in the industry to come along exactly where the data's. Dan Nuts and maybe just back to that point. I think one of the reasons is that there's a truly global industry and every transaction has lots of parties across multiple sectors and multiple countries and that's where it gets really messy and difficult to agree on on the standards and but as I said I think it's a huge opportunity. I think you can look at it. Maybe in two tracts there's one which is the the product innovation and customer experience side a cobbler the things we've done there is the the the trade lynch plaque platform that really uses blockchain to significantly -nificant improve the the information flow and reduce the cost among the many players and of course increased the the validity of the documents when Sunday information that is shared and all the examples is captioned peed on an APP. We have launched to our customers shipping refrigerated cargo actually they can sit at home home and follow the the data the timber chore the Humidity And so on of of airflow inside the container and then they can change the settings they they can change the temperature or they can change the flow more nitrogen. All you know whatever they would like to see inside the container they can change that on the APP and and actually a moments later through I o t that's those settings are changed on the container even the middle of the ocean so so those are Cobb love love of USA stories of course the other tracks and the operational efficiency that we also talked about before and maybe a couple of examples there we're using weather data data now to optimize the routing of all our ships we already more than seven hundred ships. and we always have ships that a little bit ahead of each other behind each other. We're using data from our own ships and also buying whether data from those two then optimized the routing of the ships that following and therefore of course reducing using the the fuel that we use and an increased the likelihood that we arrive on time and time at the next port and more simple example blitzer is a small law APP that we call pitched up which is really to coordinate the porch space and all the activities that need to happen within that Porch Day so so these are some of the examples that that are already in motion but but there's a huge opportunity we are not very fond this journey and there's lots and lots of of of additional opportunities both on the product innovation and costumer experience. I had an on the operational efficiency side and in order to to introduce these these kinds of digital innovations what what organizational changes have you had to undergo did musk. Let's say five ten years ago half the digital capabilities to develop these and it was just a matter of getting through the work or if you had to change the at least to some degree the nature of the company and who you hire and how you operate yeah we've definitely had to mate Changes Pete so want the laws that that we had to start hiring data scientists and digital capabilities that we simply didn't happen and truth be told the beginning was difficult to attract people with these skill sets into a relatively the seen as a conservative and rosty industry and now that we have attracted a number of them into Murska they actually find this incredibly exciting the whole opportunity of digitalising trade and and and really helping to to grow the global economy on is very exciting and actually the digital. It'll challenges and opportunities are also very big. Huge data sets lots of opportunity we have as laid us in all our latest quarterly announcements. The stock market again reiterated that we are still hiring additional. It people and specifically data scientists NPR NPR's with with digital capabilities and an older. We're looking for several thousand additional. It people to really help us on this journey going forward.
