It can create a big problem. It can kill wildlife, aquatic life, trees, bushes, everything else. It’s definitely an environmental concern.”Throughout the investigation, Detective Traniello found the boat was still registered to Sowers.

Back in early 2020, the hurricane decker belonged to Benjamin Sowers. He lives in Fort Myers seasonally and sold the boat to his neighbor, who then sold it to Joshline Cobb. In a popular off-roading spot, Detective Phil Traniello said someone spotted the dilapidated vessel and called it in.“This one was purchased for the trailer and the boat was supposed to be disposed of at the landfill but obviously it never made it there,” Detective Traniello said.

Cobb bonded out of jail, but Sowers hopes he never crosses his path.“I don’t know if I wanna see the fella,” Sowers said “He might not wanna see me. I just don’t know why people do that.” Detective Traniello said Cobb is responsible for removing the boat from the woods.

One driver of the change from an exclusively male activity to one where the sexes are more balanced has been the greater use of IT and technology as well as the greater entry by graduates, often female, into supply chain positions and a number of initiatives, such as Women in Logistics in the UK, that actively promote careers in the globalsupply chain to women.This week’s Friday Flyer is sponsored by Broekman Project Services, located in the Port of Rotterdam, which offers a total solution for handling and assembly of project cargoes – www.broekman-group.com/bpsThe law in actionPolitics is full of examples of laws that have been passed to solve problem A, only to accidently create problem B. Sequestration in the United States and a new Act in the UK that outlaws the paying of cash for scrap metal are both examples of the law of unintended consequences in action that could come back to trouble global supply chains.Whatever was the intention on Capitol Hill, the outcome of last week’s March 1 deadline for the sequestration of US federal funds, may mean more than 8,500 US Customs and Border Protection officers and US Immigration and Customs and Enforcement personnel face termination while non-mission critical expenditures such as travel and training will be curtailed. In the short term, delays and blockages at airport, land borders and seaports are inevitable. The savings, from the staffreductions will undoubtedly run into the hundreds of millions. The costs, from delayed freight, congestion, backlog of business and trade lost, could be in the billions.Across the Atlantic ocean, lawmakers in London thought they had hit on a good idea: to prevent the theft of legitimate scrap metal, and not forgetting metal in place such as cables and equipment, they changed the law that outlawed merchants paying untraceable cash for such metal. Rather than stamping out the crime, it now seems the criminal fraternity is trying to use shipping containers to export the stolen metals abroad. The unintended effect is that innocent freight forwarders are now beingasked to look out for any container collection requests from unlikely places – such as domestic premises and farms.Both initiatives done for seemingly good reasons, but with very significant, unintended consequences for companies involved in the supply chains of those countries.On the business pagesSwiss global forwarder Panalpina presented full-year results for 2012 this week, which it described as disappointing. Revenue for 2012 may have grown 1.8 percent year-on-year to CHF6.61 billion (USD6.69 billion) but gross profit fell 0.8 percent year-on-year to CHF1.47 billion (USD1.55 billion) leading to a loss of CHF70.2 million (USD74.25 million) in 2012 – compared to a CHF127.4 million (USD134.8 million) consolidated profit during 2011. It didn’t help that Panalpina had to pay EU and Swiss anti-trust fines amounting to CHF59.2 million (USD62.6 million).Meanwhile, DHL said that a strong fourth quarter, with operating earnings climbing by 38 percent to EUR827 million, helped the company deliver operating earnings of EUR2.67 billion in 2012. This represents a nine percent increase over the previous year and a continuation of DHL’s profitable growth trend.In its Global Forwarding, Freight division; in a challenging market environment, revenues grew by more than EUR500 million, or 3.6 percent, to EUR15.7 billion during 2012 (2011: EUR15.1 billion), primarily due to positive currency effects. While volume and revenues fell in air freight during 2012, sales in ocean freight and overland transport increased. The company said that: “Thanks to the selective growth strategy and, in part, to improved buying conditions, gross margins were increased onceagain in all three business segments.The Korean Register of Shipping (KR) has opened its brand new education and training centre dedicated to international shipping and shipbuilding professionals located in Busan, South Korea.On the forwarding frontBabaji Shivram Clearing & Carriers has transported a thermal oxidizer and related cargoes from Mundra port, India to the Aishwariya project site in Barmer, Rajasthan while Indian project forwarder Allcargo Logistics has shifted a 218-tonne generator from Mumbai port to Bhagad, India, on behalf TATA Projects.Netherlands headquartered SCS Heavy Lifts & Transports has moved a heavy press frame between Ruhrarea and Ginsheim, Germany while Multitrade Spain, in co-operation with Dextra Industries & Transport, will transport a nitrate plant from Indonesia to Australia (pictured second from top).Antwerp based Rollit Cargo has handled a 6MW offshore wind turbine for its clients Rhenus/Wirtz Shipping, set for the Belwind North Sea Project (pictured bottom right).Making wavesSouthampton, UK-based boat transportation specialist PSP Worldwide Logistics has delivered a 40 m yacht to the Dubai International Boat Show after loading the 189-tonne Sunseeker yacht on board the vessel Palembang at Southampton Docks in early February.Football crazy, football madIt’s the full-time whistle for some of English football’s most iconic hardware. London-headquartered forwarder Anglo Pacific has taken the famous Wembley Stadium royal tunnel gates to a museum in Chile to join a collection of pieces related to football, tennis and other sports in Santiago. The gates were too large for standard containers for the Atlantic crossing and had to be packaged in timber casing, lifted with specialist equipment and shipped as conventional below-deck cargo.Lights, camera, actionThe arrival of giant cranes at DP World’s London Gateway – the UK’s newest deep-sea container port after a two-month voyage from China made national news in the UK with coverage by BBC cameras. The three new cranes, each weighing 2,000 tonnes and measuring 138 m at full height, are the first of their kind in the UK and are capable of lifting four containers at once, according to DP World. A further 19 cranes are expected to be delivered over the coming years.Air headsRussia’s AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has increased its number of flights from Moscow Sheremetyevo International airport to Milan to three times-a-week using a B747 freighter on the route, while Hong Kong-headquartered airline Cathay Pacific has purchased three B747-8 freighter aircraft, valued at approximately USD1 billion at list prices.Hatches, matches and dispatchesA career at International freight forwarder Kuehne + Nagel International which started in the early 1970s has now concluded following the acceptance of ceo Reinhard Lange’s request to step down from May, 2013.

0Shares0000Mesut Ozil’s goal set Arsenal on course for a 2-0 win at Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth on February 7, 2016BOURNEMOUTH, February 7 – Arsenal returned to third place in the Premier League after Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s goals ended a four-game winless streak with a 2-0 victory at Bournemouth on Sunday.Arsenal arrived at Dean Court with their title challenge under threat after a poor run in January capped by a failure to score in their previous three league matches. But two goals in a minute midway through the first half were enough to move them back level on points with second-place Tottenham Hotspur, five points behind leaders Leicester City, who visit the Emirates Stadium in seven days’ time.The progress of near neighbours Tottenham has only added to Arsenal’s frustration as they have struggled to rediscover the form that took them to the head of the table.But manager Arsene Wenger could be satisfied with the way his side showed signs of the form that took them to the league summit at the turn of the year, with Oxlade-Chamberlain’s first league goal of the season a welcome bonus.Bournemouth’s recent results showed that Wenger’s side could not afford to take anything for granted, with Eddie Howe’s team unbeaten in their previous three league games, including an impressive mid-week victory at Crystal Palace.The presence of Benik Afobe in the home line-up also gave the Gunners cause for concern, with the 22-year-old anxious to impress against his former club after revealing his frustration at having never been given a first-team chance at the Emirates Stadium.Afobe left 13 months ago and has already made his mark in the top flight with three goals in four games since completing a £10 million ($14.5 million, 13.3 million euros) move from Wolverhampton Wanderers last month.A positive start by Howe’s men meant that Arsenal were given little time to settle and the hosts were convinced that Mathieu Flamini –- selected ahead of Francis Coquelin, who started on the bench –- should have seen red rather than yellow for a studs-up challenge on Dan Gosling.– Cech double save –Referee Kevin Friend thought otherwise and having withstood early pressure, Wenger’s side exposed Bournemouth’s defensive vulnerability twice in quick succession to take control of the game.Aaron Ramsey was the provider for the first goal, clipping a ball towards the far post for Olivier Giroud, whose headed knock-down enabled Ozil to finish smartly from 10 yards out in the 23rd minute.Less than a minute later, the visitors added a second, with Ramsey again the architect.This time the midfielder picked up a loose ball after Alexis Sanchez’s forward run had been halted before releasing Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right side of the area, from where the winger finished well with an angled shot that went in off the left-hand post.Oxlade-Chamberlain has endured a frustrating run of injuries over the last couple of seasons and this was the first time he had been involved in a league goal since September 2014.The game could have been over if the referee had not ignored Arsenal’s claims for a penalty when Nacho Monreal went down under a challenge from Matt Ritchie.But with Bournemouth’s first-half response limited to an excellent dipping shot from Harry Arter that drew an acrobatic save from Petr Cech, there seemed little chance of a comeback.The home side’s response after the break, however, suggested there was no lack of belief among Howe’s players.They came close to getting back into the game when Adam Smith shot into the side netting and it took a late double save from Cech, who denied first Simon Cook and then Arter, to preserve the visitors’ clean sheet0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
