       集装箱航运集团达飞轮船(CMA CGM)周五公布第二季获利增加,并表示因航运业迅速从冠状病毒疫情造成的混乱中复苏,预计当季业绩将再度改善。
 
       总部位于法国的达飞轮船第二季度实现净利润1.36亿美元,上年同期亏损1.09亿美元。
 
       核心利润,即未计利息、税项、折旧和摊销前利润,增长了26%,达到12亿美元,这得益于运费优惠和成本降低,以及低油价和一项效率计划,抵消了冠状病毒危机造成的销售下降。
 
       当季货运量较上年同期下降13.3%,但降幅低于达飞轮船最初预计的15%。
 
       该公司在一份声明中表示:“随着封锁措施逐步解除,在库存重建和商品消费大幅复苏的共同作用下,尤其是在美国,5月份运货量强劲反弹。”
 
       “在货运量和运价两方面的推动下,航运市场目前的强劲势头,应能使集团的营业利润率较第二季度进一步大幅提高。”
 
       达飞首席财务官Michel Sirat在电话中说表示,航运活动的复苏应该会将2020年集装箱航运业的下滑幅度限制在3%至5%。这也反映了电子商务销售的繁荣,以及一些面临空运航线中断的企业转向海运。
 
       达飞轮船目标是在今年年底减少物流子公司CEVA第二季度损失后恢复盈利。Sirat也承认说,达飞轮船使用了的10亿贷款中的3亿欧元(3.54亿美元)支持法国政府对CEVA的增资。 
 
       他表示,在黎巴嫩,上个月爆炸摧毁了城市的部分地区,但对集装箱码头造成的损害有限,此后公司已经恢复了在贝鲁特港口的正常运营。

CMA CGM Sees Strong Shipping Rebound After Coronavirus Storm
 
Container shipping group CMA CGM on Friday reported higher second-quarter profits and said it expects results to improve again in the current quarter as the shipping sector recovers quickly from disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
 
French-based CMA CGM recorded a net profit of $136 million for the second quarter compared with a year-earlier $109 million loss.
 
Core earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation rose 26% to $1.2 billion as favourable freight rates and reduced costs, linked to lower oil prices and an efficiency programme, offset a drop in sales caused by the coronavirus crisis.
 
Shipped volumes fell 13.3% compared with the year-earlier quarter but the decline was less than the 15% drop CMA CGM had initially forecast.
 
"As lockdown measures were gradually lifted, carried volumes bounced back strongly as of May under the combined effect of inventory rebuilding and the sharp recovery in the consumption of goods, notably in the United States," it said in a statement.
 
"The current strong momentum of the shipping market, driven by both volumes and freight rates, should allow the Group to further significantly improve its operating margin compared with the second quarter."
 
The recovery in activity, which also reflected a boom in e-commerce sales and a switch to sea freight by some businesses faced with halted air routes, should limit a drop in the container shipping sector's volumes in 2020 to 3-5%, Michel Sirat, CMA CGM's chief financial officer, said by telephone.
 
The group was aiming for a return to profit at CEVA by the end of the year after its logistics subsidiary narrowed its loss in the second quarter, Sirat said, adding CMA CGM had used 300 million euros ($354 million) of a 1 billion loan backed the French state towards a capital increase at CEVA.
 
In Lebanon, he said the company had resumed normal calls at Beirut port after last month's blast that devastated part of the city but which caused limited damage at the container terminal.
