    The port of Rotterdam has launched its latest digital application, Pronto.

    The port says that Pronto will enable ships visiting the gateway to cut their waiting time by an average of 20 percent. "Pronto is based on international standards and offers shipping companies, agents, service providers and operators a joint platform for the exchange of port call-related information," said the port authority's chief financial officer, Paul Smits.

    The application aims to improve capacity utilisation at the port's terminals, as well as enabling more precise coordination of vessel services such as bunkering, servicing, maintenance and provisioning.

    Approximately, 30,000 vessels currently call at the port of Rotterdam on an annual basis. The application will allow shipping companies, agents, terminal operators and other service providers to use a joint platform for the exchange of information relating to their port calls.

    Cathay Pacific’s cargo division has registered an increase of 4.8 percent in cargo volume compared to the same month last year. Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon have carried 189,911 tonnes of cargo and mail last month, according to the figures released by Cathay Pacific Group.

    In the first quarter of this year, tonnage for the leading air cargo carrier rose by 8.2 percent against a 4.9 percent increase in capacity.

    The airlines transported a total of 3,034,883 passengers last month – an increase of 6.4 percent compared to March 2017. In the first three months of 2018, passenger traffic increased by 3 percent while capacity increased by 3.8 percent.

    Ronald Lam, director Commercial and Cargo, Cathay Pacific said: “Our frontend performance continued to be robust in March. Backend demand from major sales areas, including Hong Kong, was boosted by the Easter holiday falling towards the end of the period. On the back of strong demand on long-haul routes, we added capacity to destinations in Canada, Europe and the United Kingdom. Strong traffic into and out of Hong Kong and favourable currency trends contributed to overall yield improvements.

    “Meanwhile, cargo revenue continued to track in line with our expectations. We saw a high load factor across the network and improved yield. The pick-up in demand from Hong Kong and mainland China post-Chinese New Year was slower than expected, but transhipments from the Indian subcontinent, Europe, Japan and Southeast Asia proved strong.”

    However, Cathay Pacific’s main hub Hong Kong Airport also reported surge in cargo traffic in first quarter of 2018. However, cargo numbers declined in the month of March for the gateway.

    Moldova and Ukraine are set on liberalising air transport between the two states following the signing of a bilateral agreement.

    The agreement between the governments of Moldova and Ukraine on air services regulates transport of persons and goods between the two countries. The document replaces the Moldova – Ukraine Air Service Agreement of 20 March 1993.

    The new provisions will create conditions for development of air transport between parties according to “international standards, facilitate activity of air operators, creating prerequisites for increase of number of airlines that operate between Moldova and Ukraine. In this context, increasing level of competition in air services market will generate better quality of services provided and contribute to reduction of air fares,” says an official Moldovan statement.
