News / Canada’s TFI International scoops up UPS Freight for $800m

first_img Giant US integrator UPS has agreed to sell its UPS Freight division to Canadian transport and logistics operator TFI International, for $800m.The deal for the truckload and less-than-truckload (LTL) unit includes a clause under which UPS Freight will continue to use UPS’s domestic package network to fulfil shipments for five years.TFI said the LTL operations would be continue to “operate independently” as part of its newly formed TForce Freight division, while the truckload operations would be folded into its existing truckload division.“We are pleased to announce this highly strategic transaction that will strengthen our service offerings to customers as well as our ongoing relationship with UPS,” said Alain Bédard, chairman, president and CEO of TFI International.“Our strategy of operating independent business units with a high degree of accountability is well-suited for building on UPS Freight’s strengths and improving margins over time.“We also look forward to offering expanded strategic network opportunities to UPS in Canada. This transaction is a ‘win-win’, allowing TFI to continue our strategic expansion across the US and aligning with UPS’s ‘Better not Bigger’ strategic positioning,” he added.UPS Freight earned estimated revenues of around $3bn last year and was expected to break even, as UPS is facing a $500m impairment charge that will hit its non-adjusted profits.UPS said the sale came after a group-wide strategic review to improve margins.“We’re excited about the future and the opportunities this creates for both UPS and UPS Freight,” said UPS CEO Carol Tomé. “The agreement allows UPS to be even more laser-focused on the core parts of our business that drive the greatest value for our customers.”UPS Freight has around 14,500 staff, of which 80% are full-time, and operates a network of 197 distribution facilities and a fleet of 6,340 tractors and 23,400 trailers.

Defense Minister Urges Vigilance

first_img News South Korea’s Minster of Defense Kim Kwan Jin has said in relation to North Korea, “The enemy would be bringing destruction on itself if it attempts to test our capabilities and readiness.”In a New Year’s letter sent to South Korea’s military commanders on the 1st, Kim went on to assert, “We have overcome a great many crises to accomplish freedom, peace and prosperity.  We possess capabilities and readiness sufficient to defend these precious values.”“2014 is an extremely important year that could determine South Korea’s fate in the national security arena.  The security situation on the peninsula is unclear as the result of North Korea’s attempts to strengthen their one-man dictatorial regime through a reign of terror,” it was written. Stating that it was “highly likely” North Korea would stage provocations toward the South in the coming year, Kim followed with calls for the military to “fulfill their responsibility as the final bastion of national security.”  News North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China SHARE AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

Alberta floods unlikely to affect Canadian covered bonds: Fitch

While the costs of the damage to the residential property market are yet to be determined, Fitch notes that the Alberta government has approved an initial allocation of $1 billion in relief funding to help residents and businesses rebuild. “We believe this will be the primary source of financial assistance to homeowners as their insurance policies generally do not cover ‘overland flooding’,” it says. The impact on residential pricing is also uncertain, Fitch says. Current prices are about 14% overvalued, it suggests. Yet, it also says that recent home sales activity suggests that the market remains robust. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Fitch Ratings said Wednesday that Canadian covered bond programs that are secured by residential mortgages should not be negatively affected by the catastrophic floods in southern Alberta. The rating agency reports that loans on properties located in Alberta represent about 15% of cover pools on average, and that regional lenders have even less exposure to Alberta in their cover pools. Additionally, the mortgage insurance on the loans from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) will also help mitigate the impact, it says.

CallHealth partners with ThynkBlynk to kickstart India’s first cross industry immutable data-interchange, powered by Blockchain

first_imgCallHealth partners with ThynkBlynk to kickstart India’s first cross industry immutable data-interchange, powered by Blockchain The partnership aims to integrate secure and reliable healthcare data for millions of patients and healthcare providers Menopause to become the next game-changer in global femtech solutions industry by 2025 Read Article Related Posts WHO tri-regional policy dialogue seeks solutions to challenges facing international mobility of health professionals MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Comments (0) Share blockchainCallHealthChainTrail Blockchain Distributed Ledgerelectronic health recordsHari ThalapalliParag JainThynkBlynk Add Comment Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha CallHealth has partnered with ThynkBlynk to ensure secured healthcare data integration on its platform. This blockchain services partnership has the unique ability to securely integrate data from all types of healthcare services and thousands of healthcare ecosystem providers like doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics, etc in compliance with stringent data privacy regulations.EHR systems in India use different information models. Due to this, stringing together data from multiple healthcare sources is becoming a challenge. By standardising healthcare outputs like prescriptions and reports, information is made verifiable and interoperable, giving patients better control over their personal health information. Patients can take their verifiable personal health data and transact with anyone they choose. At the same time, healthcare providers can verify and ensure if data migration into their systems is accurate.The practical application of CallHealth and ThynkBlynk’s ChainTrail Blockchain Distributed Ledger approach in Healthcare addresses key issues plaguing the Indian healthcare system, such as:fake or fraudulently modified documentation coupled with lack of digital data verification leading to clinical inaccuracies and dependency on manual verifications which in turn result in high overhead costsdemand for repeated procedures and pathological tests in the absence of trusted data sources, causing out of pocket expenses for patients and straining the already burdened healthcare systemprinting and retaining paper, providing copies to patients of their data on demand, transferring paper trail through the entire network of doctors, hospitals diagnostic centres, etc and manually verifying data at every stage, which is a cumbersome as well as expensive experience for providers and patients.Chaintrail makes the entire supply chain efficient by providing a single-point interface for greater operational simplicity.Commenting on the partnership, Hari Thalapalli, CEO, CallHealth said, “For an otherwise fragmented eco-system to work in cohesion, the integrity of all information exchange is imperative. CallHealth and ThynkBlynk’s ChainTrail can process millions of transactions per day and can integrate with a billion smartphone users in India and over 4.5 billion users globally. It will provide transparency of each healthcare data source and has the ability to derive meaningful insights from the terabytes of data generated across millions of transactions. It will empower clinicians with information for accurate diagnosis and monitoring potential disease outbreaks, thus enabling timely, preventive actions and improved clinical outcomes.”As CallHealth’s partner to help protect the large data tracts, Parag Jain, Founder, ThynkBlynk remarked, “Reliable Data is the new oil! And protecting customer/client data is critical for an enterprise dealing with people and their personal details, especially those in the healthcare sector. ChainTrail is the perfect platform that helps CallHealth not just protect the data, but also eases use of the same data by the customer who has the proprietary rights on it. At ThynkBlynk, we believe that a distributed data-interchange will alter how data-based interactions will be carried out in the future. Offering such innovative solutions will have positive impact not just on businesses, but also on the global society at large.” Heartfulness group of organisations launches ‘Healthcare by Heartfulness’ COVID care app Healthcare IT News By EH News Bureau on March 28, 2019 The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine storylast_img read more

News / World Shipping Council tells EC: ‘Ignore flawed ITF report on BER’

first_img In what is rapidly becoming an escalating war of words, liner lobby group the World Shipping Council (WSC) has slammed the recent International Transport Forum (ITF) report on the EU block exemption regulation (BER)According to the report, a number of consortia operating in trades to and from Europe exceed the 30% market share threshold stipulated in the BER.The BER is set to expire in April 2020 and the EC is evaluating whether to extend it for a further five years.Yesterday, the WSC said: “The commission should disregard the report – in its entirety – for the purpose of the evaluation.” It claimed it “has not been endorsed by the ITF but merely reflects the subjective views of a single individual, Mr Olaf Merk”. By Gavin van Marle 26/03/2019 ID 114782480 © Oana Ungureanu | Dreamstime.comcenter_img Mr Merk is administrator of ports and shipping at ITF, which is part of the OECD, and leads the organisation’s work on the ports and shipping industry. He is the author of a large number of reports covering an array of subjects and is regular speaker at many of the industry’s leading conferences and events.The WSC further claims the ITF report contains flaws in several areas, including: the data on which it based its conclusions, which it terms “impossible to understand, let alone verify”; that it misunderstands performance indicators and disputes its analysis of liner connectivity; and that its look at shipper satisfaction with liner services is also flawed – that segment of the ITF report is based on shippers surveys carried out by the European Shippers Council and maritime consultant Drewry.“The customers were apparently never asked the most important questions of all: would their satisfaction be higher if the BER were not renewed or if there were no consortia?” the WSC said.It added: “The report is riddled with fundamental flaws and, in any event, it has not been formally submitted to the commission. WSC submits that the report should be disregarded in its entirety for the purpose of the evaluation.“Should the commission disagree, then WSC submits that the report should be given no more credence by the commission than any of the other contributions received from private citizens, and certainly no more than its manifest flaws allow.”last_img read more

News / Disappointing start to the year as Lufthansa Cargo profits are grounded

first_imgBy Alexander Whiteman 01/05/2019 In yet another sign of a weak 2019 air cargo market, Lufthansa’s cargo division profits collapsed in the first quarter.Regionally, the Americas and Asia reported substantial losses, although it may have addressed its faltering activities in the EMEA.Ebit fell 74% to €19m, as revenues out of the Americas and Asia plummeted 9% and 6%, respectively, despite Asia posting a 1% upturn in revenue tonne km (RTK).In its earnings report, Lufthansa said the drops were the result of pricing, adding that declining yields on its two major tradelanes, combined with lower load factors, had played their part.Overall revenue fell 4% to €616m, compared with the €641m the carrier brought home during the same period in 2018, the carrier noting that operating expenses had increased over the three-month period by 6%.The decline was also put down to a 3% upturn in employee headcount, increased cost of materials and services and the cost of adding three 777 freighters to the fleet.It marks a far cry from the performance that, a little over a month ago, had group chief financial officer Ulrik Svensson praising the cargo division on the full-year 2018 numbers.However, Mr Svensson appeared to know this was coming, telling investors at the time: “Cargo had a fantastic 2018, but the market is now starting to look a little weaker. It’s too early to say, as visibility in cargo business is very, very short, but are we seeing a trend, or this is a temporary dip?”Yesterday Mr Svensson singled out low demand on routes between Europe and Asia to blame for weak profits and added that Lufthansa Cargo had been unable to escape a moderation in economic growth and resulting market-wide declines.However, he added, “the American market however continued to hold up well”.Perhaps the two bright spots are really in its Europe and Middle East/Africa divisions, which both recorded double-digit increases in revenues of 10% and 23%, respectively.Looking forward, the carrier said: “[Our] focus remains on improvements to efficiency and cost structures, which are ongoing.”last_img read more
