Port Report: Hapag-Lloyd operating profit sees slight gain as fuel prices take toll

Hapag-Lloyd (FSE: HLAG): squeezed out a slightly better operating profit after a full-year of results including its acquisition of United Arab Shipping Company. But the ocean carrier still faces headwinds from fuel prices. The fifth largest ocean carrier reported revenue growth of 15 percent for last year reaching €11.5 billion ($13.6 billion) for the year, with total volumes rising 21 percent to 11.8 million twenty-foot equivalent (teu) for the year. The gains come thanks to the full year of reporting results from the UASC buyout, which closed in mid-2017. If the two had been combined for all of 2017, volumes would have been up 6 percent for the year. Operating profit for the company came in at €1.138 billion for the year, an 8 percent gain and near the upper end of guidance Hapag-Lloyd gave for 2018 results. This despite freight rates dropping 1.5 percent over the year to $1,040 per teu. But fuel prices remain a wildcard for the industry with transport expenses up 18 percent to €9.4 billion amid marine fuel prices rising from $318 per metric ton to $421 per metric ton. Operating margin was also weaker, dropping to 9.9 percent for the year. Fitch says port’s capital spending pl...

Beauty News: Nicole Kidman-Approved Hair Oil, On-Demand Hollywood Beauty Treatments

Beauty Inside Out rounds up Hollywood beauty, fitness and wellness news, from products, pop-ups and trends to spa, salon and fitness studio openings. No cuts, no color, just deeply restorative hair and scalp treatments are what you will find on the menu at celebrity hair guru Philip B.’s appointment-only WeHo atelier. Brand-new — and perfect for reviving hair that’s been overexposed to a summer’s worth of sun, sand and swim  — is the Signature Oil Treatment ($700). The treatment starts with Philip thoroughly exfoliating the scalp using his Stroke of Genius brush before applying his cult Rejuvenating Oil, which Nicole Kidman uses to prep for the red carpet by letting it soak in her hair overnight. Custom blended with actives like pharmaceutical-grade peppermint oil to relieve tension in the scalp muscles, CBD oil to treat psoriasis and lavender oil for dehydration, the bespoke blend is massaged into the scalp and warmed to penetrate the follicle. Hair is then cleansed and conditioned, and blown out leaving it looking and feeling like new. “The treatment detoxes and stimulates the scalp and the oil is like food for the hair,” says Philip, who has worked with Mick Jagger, Iman and ...

For most of my childhood, my mother carried the Patricia, a classic black leather Coach bag

For most of my childhood, my mother carried the Patricia, a classic black leather Coach bag with simple but chic gold hardware. The contents of the bag were orderly and sparse: a red leather wallet, an Estée Lauder or Clinique lipstick, and car keys. You’d rarely find a gum wrapper or an old receipt buried at the bottom. The bag was something to be cared for; my mother didn’t have the money to buy herself a new purse whenever she wanted, so when she did get a new bag, it had to last. And for her, that meant it had to be leather — a textile that awakened all five senses, that was a precious commodity itself. I can still see her on Christmas morning, tidily unwrapping the present she had purchased and wrapped for herself days before (we’ve all done it, let’s be honest), carefully lifting the bag from the box, running her hands down the side, holding it up to her face, and saying, “It’s real leather … I can smell it.” There were no visible labels (we were not a Louis Vuitton or Tory Burch family), nor airplane tickets for a tropical vacation tucked inside. The leather itself was the statement, the status, and the ultimate luxury. So it wasn’t surprising that when, as a teenag...
