Shipowners’ Club announces ‘nil’ general increase at next renewal as half yearly results strengthen the Club’s finances still further

14 October 2014

The Shipowners’ Club has released its half yearly results as at 20th August for the 2014/15 year, and reports a strong underwriting performance with a significant increase in free reserves over the same period last year.

Highlights* include

  • Earned premiums US$120.3M
  • Ultimate claims US$73.6M
  • Underwriting surplus US$4.6M
  • Investment return US$11.6M
  • Increase in free reserves US$15.3M
  • Capital and free reserves US$314.1M
  • Combined ratio 95.5%

The decision to withdraw from the Pacific North West fishing sector, taken last year, has resulted in a loss of premium income but is expected to have a positive effect on the underwriting result.   Despite this, gross earned premium is ahead of the 2013 figure at the half year stage, and underlying organic growth remains strong.

Reinsurance costs have grown in recent years but the enhanced ‘stop loss’ cover that the Club now has with Swiss Re will mitigate future claims exposure.  Despite one large casualty, claims activity in the first half has been relatively modest, with fewer high value claims and fewer claims overall.

There is a small underwriting surplus in the first six months of the policy year itself but there has also been improvement on prior years to produce a combined ratio of 95.5% at the half way stage.  The Club’s investments have resulted in a return on capital of 2.2% at the half year and an overall surplus of US$15.3 million has been added to free reserves which now total US$314.1 million.

Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Charles Hume said, “The Club remains in a strong financial position and our Board has decided that there should be no general increase applied to premiums for next year. In addition, we will absorb any increase in reinsurance costs; we will continue with our policy of not applying any adjustments for reinsurance at a later stage.  For our pooled membership, we maintain our policy of no additional or release calls.  We thank our Members and their brokers for their continued support and the trust that they place in the Club. We remain committed to them and to the smaller and specialist vessel sector.  However, we are aware that some Members have moved into trading sectors that have resulted in the operation of larger vessels. We are prepared to consider these larger units, and this also extends to regionally trading tankers and dry cargo vessels where we are prepared to consider vessels up to 20,000 GT, and in some cases larger.”

*Six-month period 21st February – 20th August 2014 (Unaudited)

“In recent years, we have experienced strong growth in Willebroek, and our capacity in the old facility had reached its limits. The newly added capacity will help us continue to develop new opportunities together with our customers,” says Aat van der Meer, Managing Director Dachser Benelux.

Willebroek is a strategically favorable location between Brussels and the port of Antwerp. As a result, this branch office has excellent connections to the most important European and international economic regions. Dachser Belgium has been at this location since 1995 and currently employs a staff of 90 people. The newly built facilities are less than five kilometers from the former premises, which will be closed once the move is completed.

The new transit terminal is a state-of-the-art facility that has an underfloor conveyor chain for convenient and safe transport of shipments. Furthermore, at 37,800 square meters, the new property’s size provides ample room for expansion.

The commissioning of the newly constructed facilities in Willebroek is yet another milestone in Dachser’s development in Belgium. “We have maintained a presence in the Belgian market since 1975 and since then, we have significantly expanded our network,” says Michael Schilling, COO Road Logistics at Dachser. “By dovetailing overland freight services with air and sea transport, we can provide our customers with seamless access to international markets.”

We have obtained a mid-year combined ratio which is below 100% and slightly below the Board’s requirement. This is a very healthy place to be.

“The current soft market conditions we are seeing have negatively impacted premium levels but this has been offset by good growth in Member reported volumes and also by net new business. The Club’s retention in the year to date has been excellent and that, coupled with on budget new business performance, is making a positive impact on premium income.

“Our Member satisfaction levels remain high with 85% of stake holders commenting that the Club always meets or exceeds the service commitment that we have pledged.

Those vehicles have been put in order for usage in El Salvador supported by Mr. Koichiro Hara, Representative Director of Fulltime System Co., Ltd. and Chairman of Japan-El Salvador Association, and have been loaded onto “K” Line’s pure car carriers (PCCs) at Yokohama. The ambulance has been loaded on August 31, and so has the fire engine on October 10, respectively, in the cooperation of Daito Corporation, an affiliate company of “K” Line. It wishes the ambulance and the fire engine from Japan will successfully serve in El Salvador for helping precious lives.

“K” Line has established close relationship with Latin American Countries for a long time, assuming Honorary Consul of El Salvador since 1969, Chairmanship of Japan-Chile Association (est. 1940) and Japan-Peru Association (est. 1954), as well as Directorship of Latin-America Association in Japan (est. 1958). It has been actively providing free ocean transportation of supporting goods for Latin American countries, such as an ambulance and a fire engine donated from Japan to Republic of Peru in 2012. It will continue contribution to society through its core business, ocean transportation.

In welcoming the expansion Menlo’s Managing Director Europe, Tony Gunn, commented, “The global supply chains characterized by the hi-tech sector have many demanding facets.  We feel that Menlo’s culture of developing long-term, resilient customer relationships and our ability to adapt to dynamic changes in demand is particularly relevant in this sector.  In this case we are delighted to provide a high profile client with a state-of-the art facility to support its significant growth plans and extension of our current contract.”

The new Westpoort location is TAPA A certified, has 12 loading/unloading docks and an eight meter working space height.  It is Menlo’s third Amsterdam facility as it is additional to existing facilities at Schipol-Rijk.  The Company also has its European headquarters based in the city.

Dachser adds new investments in Asia

Kempten/Mumbai, September 18, 2014. International logistics provider Dachser continues to expand its Asia operations, taking over its partner’s shares in three countries. As a result, the family-owned company is now the sole shareholder in the company’s ventures in India and Thailand and a majority shareholder of the joint venture in Bangladesh.

In India, where the local head office is headquartered in Mumbai, the logistics provider maintains a seamless presence with around 500 employees at 27 locations. Its core business revolves around air and sea freight services as well as contract logistics. In Bangladesh, Dachser has a presence at two locations, while in Thailand, its office in Bangkok takes care of Dachser customers.

In recent years, Dachser has made huge investments in the Asia Pacific region, establishing subsidiaries in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia and expanding its activities in Greater China and Korea.
