Une étude réalisée par Clear Seas met en lumière le trafic maritime commercial sur la côte canadienne du Pacifique

Les grands navires et les remorqueurs assurent des liaisons commerciales régionales et internationales

C’est fascinant de pouvoir visualiser les liens entre les ports et les fluctuations saisonnières du trafic maritime – ces liens ressemblent au système circulatoire d’un organisme vivant.”

— Paul Blomerus, le directeur exécutif de Clear Seas.

VANCOUVER, (C.-B.), CANADA, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Une étude du trafic maritime sur la côte canadienne du Pacifique réalisée par Clear Seas vient combler une lacune dans les connaissances concernant les quelque 6 000 navires commerciaux et remorqueurs qui sillonnent ces eaux chaque année. Elle fournit également des données précieuses pour l’évaluation des risques de pollution par les hydrocarbures associés à la circulation de ces navires. Cette étude constitue, à ce jour, l’analyse la plus actuelle et la plus complète du trafic maritime commercial dans la région canadienne du Pacifique accessible au public.

« L’étude dresse un portrait complet du commerce et du trafic maritimes dans la région », affirme Paul Blomerus, le directeur exécutif de Clear Seas. « C’est fascinant de pouvoir visualiser les liens entre les ports et les fluctuations saisonnières du trafic maritime – ces liens ressemblent au système circulatoire d’un organisme vivant », ajoute-t-il.

Sans grande surprise, l’étude a révélé que les exportations de marchandises en vrac, comme les céréales et le charbon, constituent le trafic maritime international dominant dans la région. Avec les porte-conteneurs, les vraquiers représentent plus de 70% des navires océaniques qui font escale dans les ports de la côte canadienne du Pacifique. Le rapport jette également un nouvel éclairage sur l’incidence de l’économie et de la protection de l’environnement sur les habitudes de circulation des navires – des incidences qui engendrent parfois des conséquences inattendues, comme les émissions supplémentaires de gaz à effet de serre générées par les navires qui empruntent un itinéraire plus long afin d’éviter les zones qui limitent la pollution au dioxyde de soufre.

Au-delà du rôle que jouent les grands ports comme ceux de Vancouver et de Prince Rupert dans le commerce international, le rapport souligne le rôle important que jouent les ports comme ceux de Nanaimo, de Chemainus, de Port Mellon, de Squamish, de Port Alberni, de Port McNeill, de Kitimat, de Stewart, de Port Alice et de Gold River dans le commerce. En effet, l’étude révèle qu’une proportion surprenante du trafic maritime sur la côte est attribuable aux remorqueurs qui tirent des barges à destination ou en provenance de ces plus petits ports. Courante sur la côte du Pacifique, cette pratique permet le transport de biens essentiels vers les communautés côtières éloignées et la livraison de matières premières et de produits finis pour soutenir certains secteurs clés de l’économie locale, comme les scieries et les usines de pâte à papier. À Nanaimo, Chemainus, Port Mellon et Squamish, le trafic des remorqueurs est dix fois plus important que celui des navires de charge.

Bien que les navires et les remorqueurs génèrent des possibilités économiques aux communautés situées le long de la côte, ils peuvent aussi causer des dommages à l’environnement, notamment de par le risque de déversements d’hydrocarbures. Les évaluations des risques de déversements se concentrent souvent sur les pétroliers, mais l’étude de Clear Seas souligne le fait que les hydrocarbures transportés comme carburant par les navires constituent également une menace de pollution. L’équipe de recherche a développé des cartes illustrant les endroits où les plus grandes quantités d’hydrocarbures sont transportées sous forme de cargaison et de combustible, et est arrivée à quelques conclusions étonnantes. Bien que les navires-citernes qui se rendent à la baie Burrard pour s’y charger de pétrole provenant de l’oléoduc de Trans Mountain soient ceux qui attirent le plus souvent l’attention du public, l’étude a révélé que dans la mer des Salish, les plus importantes sources d’hydrocarbures persistants – le type d’hydrocarbures le plus dommageable, collant et long à éliminer de l’environnement marin – sont les pétroliers à destination des États-Unis, suivis de près par les navires de charge avec leur carburant. L’analyse de Clear Seas a également relevé une grande quantité d’hydrocarbures persistants transportés par les navires qui empruntent les étroites voies navigables du Passage Intérieur – le couloir abrité qui passe à l’est de l’île de Vancouver et monte jusqu’à Prince Rupert et vers l’Alaska. Dans une année moyenne, c’est l’équivalent de 332 piscines olympiques d’hydrocarbures persistants qui passe par le détroit de la Reine-Charlotte dans les réservoirs de carburant des navires.

Cette étude s’inscrit dans l’initiative de Clear Seas portant sur les couloirs de navigation maritime pour la région du Pacifique, qui vise à cerner et à décrire les risques liés aux activités de transport maritime commercial et d’appuyer les efforts de planification maritime au Canada. Combiné aux résultats des autres études de cette série, qui portent notamment sur l’évaluation de la sensibilité des zones côtières aux déversements d’hydrocarbures et sur les capacités d’intervention d’urgence qui permettraient d’éviter qu’un navire échoue, ce rapport facilitera la prise de décisions éclairées en matière de planification et de gestion des risques du transport maritime.

Dans l’avant-propos du rapport de Clear Seas, le chef Harley Chappell de la Première Nation Semiahmoo déclare : « Depuis la colonisation, nous avons assisté à l’augmentation du développement et de la croissance industrielle tout autour de nos communautés. L’augmentation du trafic maritime a un effet direct sur notre communauté et sur toutes celles qui vivent le long de la côte […] En tant que leader, je veux donc travailler avec des partenaires pour créer un plan visant non seulement à maintenir nos ressources traditionnelles pour les générations futures, mais aussi à leur laisser un monde meilleur […] Il s’agit d’un travail important pour planifier l’avenir de nos communautés. »

Le rapport complet peut être consulté ici.

Clear Seas tiendra un webinaire le 2 mars à 10 h (HNP)/13 h (HNE)/14 h (HNA) dans le cadre duquel les principales conclusions de l’étude seront présentées. Pour plus de détails.

Bluebird Self-Storage Expands In Nova Scotia

Bluebird Self-Storage

610 Wright Ave., Dartmouth NS

158 Parkway Dr., Truro, NS

Continued Cross-Canada Growth

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — BLUEBIRD SELF STORAGE ACQUIRES PREMIERE SELF STORAGE, ENTERS ATLANTIC CANADA
This $16.2 million transaction follows Bluebird’s recent $81 million recapitalization of three facilities in the Greater Toronto Area

DARTMOUTH and TRURO,– Toronto-headquartered BLUEBIRD SELF STORAGE has acquired two best-in-market, stabilized self-storage facilities in Dartmouth and Truro, Nova Scotia. This $16.2 million transaction comes two months after the company recapitalized $81 million across three locations in the Greater Toronto Area.

According to Jamie Bennett, Managing Principal and Head of Development, “Branded under Premiere Self Storage, the Nova Scotia facilities are situated at 610 Wright Avenue in Dartmouth and 158 Parkway Drive in Truro – amazing locations for the market. We will implement best practices of modern management intensely focusing on digital traffic, revenue management and industry-leading customer service. The Dartmouth site is in a high-traffic retail corridor, close to major retail and residential to the east, and we see room for future expansion. The Truro facility is well-established, but the local market is under-served with climate-controlled facilities like ours. Our competitors in the local market have high occupancy so we expect continued strong demand for storage.”

610 Wright Ave., Dartmouth NS 158 Parkway Dr., Truro, NS

“We are delighted to collaborate with Bluebird on the acquisition of these two Nova Scotia facilities,” said Roland Schatz, President of Calgary-based StoreWest. Both are welcome additions to our combined holdings and support our mutual goal of aggregating a portfolio of top-tier storage sites across the country.”

Momentum is gathering for another Bluebird milestone in March, “when the company expands its existing Western Canada footprint further into Alberta,” said Reade De Curtins, Bluebird Managing Principal, Head of Real Estate and Director of Branding.

“The Alberta transaction will take our capital outlay to nearly $200 million in a relatively short period of time. We are being more aggressive than ever before, and our growth is significant across Canada, as we continue our coast-to-coast expansion. We are also actively seeking management and acquisition opportunities in B.C.”

Among the Bluebird advances since October 2020 is the creation of a company to handle third-party storage management for owners across Canada. Jason Koonin, CFA was appointed CEO of Bluebird Storage Management ULC (bluebirdstoragemanagement.ca). Bluebird is focused on creating a better, differentiated self-storage experience. When you store with Bluebird, “we recognize It’s Not Just Your Stuff, It’s Your Life.TM”

“We are moving full steam ahead with expansion plans and steps to improve the owner and customer experiences,” De Curtins added. “As an essential service, the pandemic hasn’t slowed us down. The self-storage market is very hot right now. We have a solid team in place across the country, as well as enthusiastic investors. Our pipeline is growing rapidly and we have many projects that will come to fruition later in 2021 and 2022.”

Study by Clear Seas Offers Insight into Commercial Shipping Traffic on Canada’s Pacific Coast

Clear Seas study closes knowledge gap on the ships and tugboats that ply Canada's Pacific Coast and provides valuable data to assess the oil pollution risks.

It is fascinating to be able to visualize the interconnections between ports and the seasonal fluctuations in traffic patterns – it almost looks like the circulatory system of a living organism.”

— Paul Blomerus, Executive Director, Clear Seas

VANCOUVER , BC, CANADA, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A study of marine shipping traffic on Canada’s Pacific Coast by Clear Seas closes a knowledge gap about the 6,000 commercial ships and tugboats that ply these waters annually and provides valuable data to assess the oil pollution risks they represent. The report released today makes available to the public the most current and comprehensive commercial vessel traffic analysis of Canada’s Pacific region.

“The study provides a comprehensive picture of marine trade and traffic in the region,” says Paul Blomerus, Executive Director of Clear Seas. “It is fascinating to be able to visualize the interconnections between ports and the seasonal fluctuations in traffic patterns – it almost looks like the circulatory system of a living organism,” he says.

Not unexpectedly, the study found that bulk commodity exports like grain and coal were the dominant international traffic in the region, which together with shipping containers, make up more than 70% of oceangoing ships calling on ports up and down Canada’s Pacific coast. The report also provides new insights into how traffic patterns are shaped by economics and environmental protection – sometimes with unexpected consequences – like the extra greenhouse gas emissions caused by ships taking a longer route to avoid zones that restrict sulphur dioxide pollution.

But it’s not all about the large ports like Vancouver or Prince Rupert and their international trade. Ports like Nanaimo, Chemainus, Port Mellon, Squamish, Port Alberni, Port McNeil, Kitimat, Stewart, Port Alice and Gold River play a big role too. The study found that a surprising amount of traffic on the coast is made up of tugboats towing barges to and from these smaller ports. Common on the Pacific Coast, this practice transports essential goods to remote coastal communities and delivers raw materials and finished goods to support key sectors of the local economy such as sawmills and pulp mills. In the case of Nanaimo, Chemainus, Port Mellon and Squamish, tugboats make up ten times more traffic than cargo ships.

Ships and tugboats bring economic opportunity to communities large and small along the coast, but they also bring the potential for environmental damage. Top of mind is oil spills. Oil spill risk assessments often focus on oil tankers, but this latest report from Clear Seas highlights the fact that oil carried as a ship fuel is also a pollution threat. The research team was able to plot maps of where the most oil is carried as both cargo and fuel – with some surprising conclusions.

Although oil tankers bound for Burrard Inlet to collect oil from the Trans Mountain Pipeline are most often the focus of public attention, the study found that the largest sources of persistent oil – the most damaging, sticky, long-lasting kind of oil – in the Salish Sea are tankers bound for the U.S. followed closely by cargo ship fuel. Clear Seas’ analysis also found a high quantity of persistent oil carried by ships travelling the narrow waterways of the Inside Passage – the sheltered navigable waterway passing east of Vancouver Island and up to Prince Rupert and beyond to Alaska. In an average year, the equivalent of 332 Olympic swimming pools of persistent oil passed through Queen Charlotte Strait in ship fuel tanks.

This study forms part of Clear Seas’ Marine Transportation Corridors initiative for the Pacific region that is intended to determine and describe risks related to commercial marine shipping activities and to assist in marine spatial planning in Canada. When combined with the results of the other reports in the series that assess the sensitivity of coastal areas to oil spills and the emergency response capabilities that would prevent a ship running aground, this report will inform and enable improved decision making about how to plan and manage the risks presented by marine shipping.

In the foreword to the Clear Seas report, Chief Harley Chappell of the Semiahmoo First Nation says, “Since colonization we have seen the increase of development and growth of industry all around our communities. The increase in vessel traffic has a direct effect on our community, and other communities who live along the coast […] As a leader I want to work with partners to create a plan to not only sustain our traditional resources for our future generations but to leave it a better place for them […] This work is important to plan for our future for our communities.”

The full report and findings are available here.

Clear Seas is hosting a webinar to introduce the study’s results today at 10 AM (PST)/1 PM (EST)/2 PM (AST). More details can be found here.

4qui.store is a division of 4qui.com specialized in fulfillment

VALENCIA, SPAIN, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The e-commerce platform 4qui.com recently announced its expansion to Spain, highlighting that its operations in this country will be focused on offering storage and logistics services to small and medium online stores through its 4qui.store division through a 360º model, designed to reduce costs in logistics processes.

The new 4qui.store subsidiary in Spain, 4qui.store will be in charge of providing complete fulfillment solutions or, what is the same, as covering the whole process until the product reaches the final consumer. The solutions that 4qui.store will offer to small and medium-sized companies, will help them grow in distribution and sales on digital platforms.

Hiring a fulfillment is essential for new e-commerce

The key to the success of e-commerce is not only in its products but in the entire shopping experience, which involves the storage, packaging, distribution and notification system so that users know the transit of their purchases. For this reason, it’s essential to have a service in conformity to nowadays times and the demands
and expectations of customers.

"We have created a system for businesses where, even if their focus is retail or physical shops, we encourage and guide them to include online sales as part of their growth plan. How do we do it? Offering them plans adapted to each business model to comply with the storage, preparation and delivery process to the final customer, which turn into an increase in its customer base and the expansion of its profits.

Own warehouses and orders delivered in a timely manner

2020 meant, among other things, a very important leap to digital purchases. The global context indicated, primarily, to small and medium-sized businesses an imperative need to adapt it to the new reality. For this reason, 4qui.store isn’t a simple storage and distribution service, it’s a system to generate credibility and trust for businesses and therefore for buyers. It has its own warehouses, integrated applications into most of the online store platforms, with storage service from €99 per month, adaptable to the growth of the trade and without permanence commitments.

A very attractive proposal for small and medium-size businesses

Many businesses (small and medium-sized) don’t have large resources to hire massive logistics companies, that’s why the 4qui.store objective is to facilitate and lower the costs of managing the logistics process of the orders of its stores, managing to greatly reduce the costs of storage and staff.

"We want to become a reference for all small and medium electronic businesses in Spain as we are pioneering in offering wide varieties of monthly plans that will based on the size, quantity, weight, fragility and turnover rate of the products or even according to the client’s needs we can offer personalized quotation.

Texas “Deep Freeze” Opens the Door for Appalachian Basin Investment

Tom’s presentation will vividly demonstrate the petrochemical opportunity in the Appalachian Basin is now”

— Joe Barone, President & Founder, Shale Directories

PENN VALLEY, PA, U.S., March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The physical and mental misery throughout Texas due to the “Big Freeze” plus snow, and the attendant spike in energy prices nationwide is not yet over.

Well-below freezing temperatures and snow did much more than freeze pipelines, ice over wind turbines and cover solar panels.

Much of the U.S. petrochemical industry is centered along the Gulf Coast and, like their refinery cousins, petchem complexes were shut down, froze up, lost power, etc.

While several petchem giants have announced the restart of their facilities, a few factors have converged which could make returning to production impossible.

“The impact of the COVID pandemic, last summer’s very active hurricane season and now the Big Freeze have combined and will lead to a big shock for consumers,” according to Tom Gellrich, founder of TopLine Analytics.
The shock will be due to shortages, Gellrich said, as many of the plastic types we take for granted, used for such everyday things as milk jugs, hydrogen peroxide, even the numerous volume of plastic incorporated in today’s vehicles, could be in short supply.

Gellrich will further explain how the Texas Big Freeze could open the door to increased petchem investment in the Appalachian Basin at the Second Annual Appalachian Basin Real Estate Conference.

Presented by Shale Directories, the one-day program is slated for March 25, at the Oglebay Resort in Wheeling, West Virginia.

“Tom’s presentation will vividly demonstrate the petrochemical opportunity in the Appalachian Basin is now,” commented Joe Barone, President & Founder, Shale Directories.

Gellrich said the need for plastics related to treating COVID for such things as personal protective equipment (PPE), and hurricane-related flooding which shut petchem plants, led to a sharp drawdown in inventory.

“And now, you have the Big Freeze, which further strains inventories,” Gellrich said.

For chemical producers restarting their complexes, Gellrich said the time needed to do a restart is three weeks minimum, as all equipment must be pulled apart and inspected.

“Employees will need to work overtime, and more outside contractors will be needed to do the job,” he said. And keep in mind, many of these workers have their owns problems at home, with broken pipes, no electricity, etc., which also must be addressed.”

If plant components must be replaced, Gellrich said needed components may not be available. “Every part of the supply chain is so connected today that if one piece of equipment must be replaced, there is a ripple effect throughout the entire chain,” according to Gellrich.

“We might be three months out before things are back to normal.”

The hardships caused by COVID, hurricanes and the Texas Big Freeze are forcing numerous companies, analysts and consultants to take a closer look at supply chains, bringing more chain components back to the U.S. from China and other overseas venues.

“Some companies will look at other locations other than the Gulf Coast to establish petrochemical facilities,” said Gellrich.

The logical region to serve as the U.S.’s Petrochemical Hub No. 2 would be the Appalachian Basin, as it offers inexpensive natural gas for fuel/feedstock and is located within 700 miles of numerous plastic products wholesalers and customers.

Jombone transforms hourly wage hiring

Sumit Sahdev, Co-founder & CEO, Jombone Inc.

Sumit Sahdev, Co-founder & CEO, Jombone Inc.

Toronto-based startup links hourly wage workers directly to local businesses

Jombone is on a mission to bring enterprise-class human capital and workforce management software capabilities to businesses of all sizes, around the world,”

— Sumit Sahdev, Co-founder & CEO, Jombone Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Introduced as the ultimate platform to connect with hourly wage workers in their communities, Jombone helps small to medium-sized businesses attract and network with pre-screened candidates while avoiding high acquisition and staffing costs.

“Jombone is on a mission to bring enterprise-class human capital and workforce management software capabilities to businesses of all sizes, around the world,” according to its CEO, Sumit Sahdev, who co-founded the company in 2018 with COO Garima Sahdev and CTO Amit Arora.

The platform helps businesses enhance the power of their hiring brands in local communities,” he added. “Currently, there is no easy way for small and medium-sized businesses to effectively hire and manage hourly employees without paying high costs to staffing agencies. Jombone is a disruptive technology that provides a totally new human resources administration tool to business owners.”

Not only does Jombone eliminate the recruitment overhead in hourly wage hiring but it also provides end-to-end automation and complete self-service tools to manage hiring and staffing processes, including:
– A talent acquisition instrument that taps into local communities of hourly wage employees,
– End-to-end human resources administration, and
– Workforce management, Shifts scheduling, and Payroll

The best candidates may be workers who do not know how to create a resume that matches the posting and highlights their skills and experience. Recruitment sites that rely solely on resumes uploaded by the workers themselves are not generally designed for companies where there is high turnover. Such companies do not have the time or staff to vet candidates extensively, and their continual need to recruit can result in hiring fatigue.

A unique business model
Jombone’s Community Recruitment Module is run by gig workers who specialize in administering human resources programs for specific industrial segments. These recruiters leverage social networking to create flexible pools of fully screened and dependable candidates. This unique model combines the latest technology with the recruiters’ many years of experience to enable Jombone clients to manage their entire human resources process at a fraction of the cost they would incur or pay a staffing agency.

Uniquely positioned for hyper-growth
With unemployment rates at record levels because of COVID-19, workers have been forced to upgrade their online skills to search for their next job. They are comfortable using the Jombone mobile apps because its technology and services are always evolving to meet their needs, help them learn new skills, and keep them informed of opportunities in their communities. At the same time, employers are finding that using the platform to eliminate overhead in hiring and staffing is an effective strategy to reduce expenses and conserve operating capital. Both these factors are positioning Jombone for exceptional growth.

A promising start
With advisory services and R&D funding from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP), Mitacs, the Ontario Centre of Innovation (OCI) and revenues generated from pre-launch operations, the MaRS Discovery District startup launched its commercial SaaS offering across Canada in December and already has clients in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia.

So far, in its first year, it has attracted more than 80,000 users, has generated revenue of more than $500,000 and has established research and development alliances with Dr. Eric Yu at University of Toronto on the application of human-centered issues in the field of AI-Machine Learning, and Dr. Henry Kim, of the Blockchain Lab at York University for the application of Quantum Ledger in HR and Payroll systems. Recently, with the help of the Next Generation Network Program delivered by the Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks and OCI, the Jombone platform has been tested to support more than one million commercial users.

How the Church of Scientology was able to launch a massive educational campaign to protect communities the world over.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — It has been a year since the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

An interactive timeline on the Scientology website called 20/21: A Look Behind & A Look Ahead shows how the Church immediately launched a program of total preparedness to protect Scientology Churches, staff, parishioners, communities and entire countries.

The speed and intensity of the Church’s response was consistent with a maxim coined by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard for circumstances like these: “An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.”

Few people knew how to protect themselves from such an infectious disease. So first, the Church compiled the most authoritative and effective guidelines for dealing with such an outbreak and distilled them into a series of illustrated booklets written in simple, direct language anyone can understand. Then Volunteer Ministers carried out an educational campaign to help their communities understand how to stay well.

One reason the Church was able to rapidly execute an international response of such magnitude was because of the Church of Scientology International Dissemination and Distribution Center.

Presses ran 24/7 producing 17,500 booklets an hour in 21 languages.

The plan was for Volunteer Ministers from every Scientology Church and Mission to distribute these booklets in their communities. To ensure they could do so safely the Church of Scientology International Dissemination and Distribution Center produced more than 35,000 pieces of Volunteer Minister protective gear and shipped this out along with 7.5 million copies of the booklets.

How was it possible for this organization to respond with such speed and efficiency to the urgent needs of a global pandemic?

In launching the Scientology Network, Mr. David Miscavige, ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion, said the Church would be providing unprecedented access to its facilities and behind-the-scenes operations of the Church of Scientology. The episode of Inside Scientology on the Church of Scientology International Dissemination and Distribution Center shows how the Church fused cutting-edge technology with its own organizational policy to bring purpose and dedication to manufacturing, creating a massive, modern, state-of-the-art phenomenon of printing, publishing and manufacturing technology.

With this in place, the Church was able to carry out this international campaign with the volume and speed necessary to serve the needs of Scientologists and their communities everywhere.

Watch Inside Scientology: Church of Scientology International Dissemination and Distribution Center on the Scientology Network at DIRECTV 320. It can also be streamed at scientology.tv and is available through satellite television, mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.
