News / Record-breaking Q3 for Zim as volumes, margins and profits soar

first_img Israeli carrier Zim recorded its highest quarterly profits in Q3 as it enjoyed soaring margins and growing volumes.The carrier this morning reported a quarterly net profit of $144.4m, an astonishing 2,818% increase over the $5m recorded in the third quarter of 2019.Adjusted ebitda of $262.1m in the third quarter was also a record, and compares with $106.8m in Q3 19, representing an increase of 145.4%Total revenues for the period were $1.013bn, its highest level for eight years and an increase of 20.3% over the $842m it earned in the third quarter of 2019.And in contrast to many other carriers, it saw volumes grow year on year, by 5.1% to reach 762,000 teu.The average freight rate per teu was $1,176 compared with $1,009 last year, a 16.6% increaseChief executive Eli Glickman said: “I’m proud to report these exceptional results. Zim’s outstanding results in the third quarter represent a new all-time record. This remarkable and exceptional achievement stems from our long-term strategy and vision and reaffirms it. I expect Q4 results to be at least as high.“While market conditions were favourable in some trades, we are still facing the challenges of the pandemic, and market volatility remains high. Nevertheless, our agile response to market developments enabled us to perform better than ever in the current ‘new reality’.“Following the successful launch of new specialised services for the fast-growing e-commerce sector, we further expanded our reach and our offer to customers. During the quarter we also announced several new initiatives aimed at harnessing our technological and innovative expertise to shipping-related fields,” he added.Zim’s strategy has largely focused on developing niche services while retaining a share of the transpacific market through a slot-charter deal with 2M partners MSC and Maersk.Last week, it announced the launch of a new Mexico-Tampa shuttle service for mid-December, adding to the four feeder services it already operates in the region.It will deploy a 1,000 teu vessel on a weekly, fixed-day schedule, departing Altamira on Fridays and calling at Tampa on Mondays.

90 different countries, 50 languages, 22 religions – Portlaoise strive to be a Community of Belonging

first_img There are people living in Laois from over 90 different countries, speaking 50 different languages and practising 22 different religions.Over 10,000 people in Laois speak a language other than English on a daily basis in their homes.It’s that level of diversity that led to the Laois Education Centre developing a ‘Community of Belonging’ project, one that will see best practice in intercultural education, promotion of the “rich linguistic repertoire of Portlaoise and its environs and engagement with schools across the educational sector.The Laois Education Centre serves the education communities of Laois, Offaly and North Tipperary providing the required professional development courses and support to meet its educational need.However, a conversation between Catherine Doolan, its director, and Liam O’Neill, its vice chairman also led to them discussing the “wider remit of the centre in the broader education community”. RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous article‘All gambling advertising needs to be banned at this stage’Next articleFundraiser launched in memory of beloved Laois man who sadly lost his life to Covid Steven Millerhttp://www.laoistoday.ieSteven Miller is owner and managing editor of LaoisToday.ie. From Laois, Steven studied Journalism in DCU and has 14 years experience in the media, almost 10 of those in an editorial role. Husband of Emily, father of William and Lillian, he’s happiest when he’s telling stories or kicking a point. “What became apparent to us very quickly was that the demographics of Laois have changed hugely over the last number of years,” said Catherine Doolan in a video launching their project which has been supported by the Teaching Council of Ireland.The project was officially launched by Rotimi Adebari, the Nigerian-born man who was an elected member of Laois County Council and a former Mayor of Portlaoise, the first African person to hold such an office in Ireland.The project is using the BEACONS model – Bringing Education Alive for our Communities on a National Scale – that has been employed in a handful of other communities around the country,“Laois has become a very multicultural community. We discovered that over 90 different countries are now represented in Laois,” added Catherine.“22 different religions are practised and over 50 languages spoken. In reality this means that more than 10,000 people in Laois speak a language other than English on a daily basis in their homes.“We wondered what the effect of this was on the school communities we serve. We look on this as a gift, a huge gift of diversity to the county of Laois. It provides huge opportunities for school communities going forward.”“We felt it was time to open up a conversation with our school communities around this and listen honestly to what they had to say.”They duly invited students, teachers and parents to engage, with Tomás Ó Ruairc, Director of the Teaching Council, saying there was “a particular spark and enthusiasm” and “an eagerness to reach out and include the full diversity of the school community around them in Portlaoise”.“We have been given a gift of diversity that we could never have imagined in our wildest dreams,” said Liam O’Neill in his address. “We are excited by the possibilities that this provides. We are,  also acutely aware of the challenges that diversity may pose for us all in the community“We knew that we had choices. We could sit back, continue with our professional development of teachers and watch how the community evolves or we could decide to engage with our school communities with a view to exploring openly how Laois Education Support Centre could possibly support schools in addressing Diversity and  interculturalism in their own contexts.“Our earnest hope is that Our Community of belonging will make  Portlaoise a stronger and more united community.”The aims of the project are:To enable positive engagement with the education community of Portlaoise, with Laois Education Support Centre fulfilling the role of a hub of learning.To provide a safe, respectful, multicultural space where the diversity of voices belonging to Portlaoise can be heard in the hope that all these voices will inform and challenge those involved in the education community of Portlaoise.To create a space where the educational potential of diversity can be unlocked.To promote a sense of ‘Belonging’ which ensures that linguistic and culturaldiversity is of benefit to all, with a view to establishing Portlaoise as a ‘Community ofBelonging’, promoting all voices equally.To create opportunities to extend the relationship between education communities across sectors in relation to diversity and explore how other partners could work collaboratively to support them in the area of interculturalism.To enable a conduit of local influence to reach national level in policy formation, contributing to building a broader sense of ‘Belonging’ at national level.SEE ALSO – Impressive young Laois people set to feature in brand new Podcast series TAGSCatherine DoolanCommunity of Belonginglaois education centreLiam O’Neill WhatsApp WhatsApp Facebook Pinterest Facebook Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival date Twittercenter_img 90 different countries, 50 languages, 22 religions – Portlaoise strive to be a Community of Belonging Home News Education 90 different countries, 50 languages, 22 religions – Portlaoise strive to be… NewsEducation Pinterest Electric Picnic Electric Picnic Council Electric Picnic apply to Laois County Council for new date for this year’s festival Mary Sweeney elected Cathaoirleach of Portlaoise Municipal District for next 12 months Twitter By Steven Miller – 15th March 2021 last_img read more

Business Secretary calls with business leaders 11 January 2021

first_imgBusiness Secretary calls with business leaders 11 January 2021 Following his appointment as Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on 8 January, Kwasi Kwarteng this afternoon hosted a virtual meeting with some of the UK’s leading business representative organisations: the British Chambers of Commerce, Confederation of British Industry, Federation of Small Businesses, The Institute of Directors and Make UK.The Business Secretary opened the call by acknowledging the extraordinary pressures that British businesses are facing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and promised to be a champion of business and workers at the Cabinet table and across government. He thanked the 5 organisations for continuing to promote the government’s support measures to their members, and praised businesses for playing its part in helping to defeat the virus, including those working on vaccine manufacturing and deployment, and those working to maintain essential services in a COVID-secure way to keep the country moving.The Business Secretary set out his priorities for the year ahead, noting that there was clear cause for optimism with both vaccines and a trade agreement with the European Union now secured. He called on businesses to work with government to take advantage of our new-found sovereignty as an independent trading nation to drive prosperity and economic growth for all, as well as the government’s Plan for Jobs.The Business Secretary reaffirmed the government’s commitment to build back better from the pandemic by making Britain to be the best country in the world to start and grow a business and unleashing a new wave of investment to create jobs and level up economic activity. He also discussed the vital importance of delivering on the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, reaching our legally-binding target of net zero emissions by 2050, and unleashing innovation across all four nations of the UK, cementing the country’s position as a science superpower while building the foundations for the new industries of tomorrow.The Business Secretary also held a number of bi-lateral calls with leading British employers today and will continue to have further calls throughout this week. /Public Release.

Council supports rating reform bill for a fairer rating system

first_imgCouncil supports rating reform bill for a fairer rating system Councillors have moved to support a bill proposed by the Office of Local Government that will change the way Council can set rating structures and implement rates harmonisation at the January 27 Ordinary Council Meeting.The Exposure Draft Bill Local Government Amendment (Rating) Bill 2021 was released for public consultation on 22 December 2020 by the NSW Government in an attempt to deliver a fairer and more flexible rating system for ratepayers and Councils. This will provide some relief to those set to be affected by the rates harmonisation that will be implemented from July 1 2021.Since the amalgamation of Armidale Dumaresq and Guyra Shire in 2016, Armidale Regional Council has operated under two different rating systems due to a four year rates freeze imposed by the NSW Government. This freeze will end on July 1 2021, meaning Armidale Regional Council will move to adopt one rating system for the whole Local Government Area (LGA).If the bill is passed by parliament, it would mean the impending rates harmonisation could be stretched out over a four year period, significantly decreasing the impact on ratepayers.Armidale Regional Council Mayor Ian Tiley said this would allow for a smoother transition for those set to be affected.“Council understands the rates harmonisation will see a number of residents, particularly those in the Guyra area, begin to pay higher rates, so by staggering the changes the impact will be less significant,” said Cr Tiley.This gradual approach could see Council apply no more than 50% of the total increase in rates at the rating category level over the period, in any one of the four financial years.“If passed by parliament, the proposed bill would also allow Council to create a new rating category for environmental land to levy fairer rates for properties that can’t be developed, while also allowing us to create more flexible rating subcategories to better reflect access to services and infrastructure,” said Cr Tiley.“This would create a fairer and more tailored rating system to suit the needs of ratepayers within our LGA.”Council would also have the power to choose whether to exempt certain properties from special rates for water and sewerage, sell properties for unpaid rates after three years rather than five, and levy special rates above the rate peg for infrastructure jointly funded with other levels of government without the need for IPART approval. /Public Release.
