Dear ladies and gentlemen,

The peak season on AET might come to it end, but we will only get to know after the China holidays if the space pressure will be reduced to
a more comfortable level or will remain until the end of the year.
But we can already see the heavily increasing space demand on the North Atlantic. Vessels are fully booked for the next 2 weeks already
and it will not be easy to find enough space to support all demands in October.

Ocean freight rates continue to be below the required level to cover basic operating costs or
transportation costs. Therefore OOCL will continue with further phases of our rate restoration programe.
Details will be advised by separate announcement

          7.     IMO inspection in Rotterdam per 01.10.09

Per 01 10 2009 in the Netherlands there is the requirement to perform gas measurements before any
container can be accessed by personal.
This is valid for import containers as well as export containers.
The latter is being disputed by various parties but no conclusion reached so far.

In practice this means that any container that requires adjustments (CAT 1 CAT 2 CAT3 or CAT4) will
have to be measured on 11 types of gas.

Unfortunately this gas test is not free of charge and after a lot of discussions price is set at EUR 87.50.
