Picture: Matthew Stockman/Getty Images.Aussie tennis comeback king Bernard Tomic has jumped 69 spots in world rankings this year, but he’s had to take a major pay cut back in Queensland.Tomic, who’s currently ranked 83rd in the world, is gearing up to show off his new-found form in the upcoming Australian Open at the end of the month — having come off his first ATP win of the year at the $1.18 million Chengdu Open in China.But newly released CoreLogic figures show that the family’s duplex in Southport on the Gold Coast has not seen as much luck, selling at an almost 25 per cent discount on the Tomic’s initial listing prices. The property has a private swimming pool and entertainment area. Massive relief after winning the inaugural Rafa Nadal Open in Mallorca, Spain early this year — his first title in three years, boosting his ranking from 152 to 126.

HMM Sets Up Ultra-Freezer Service

first_imgSouth Korean shipping company Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) has started its first ‘Ultra-Freezer’ service from Busan, Korea, to Barcelona, Spain.As informed, HMM has become the only ultra-freezer service provider from Korea. Currently, only Maersk Line and CMA CGM provide such services.“This ultra-freezer service will do much to advance HMM’s … technology in reefer container management,” an official from HMM said.Ultra-freezer service refers to transportation of goods in – 60ºC, which are above the limit of regular reefer containers (– 35ºC to -40ºC). High technology and skilled personnel are also needed in the ultra-freezer service, as ultra-freezer containers need to maintain the very low temperature during shifting, loading, and discharging process. Due to such reasons, freight rates of ultra-freezer service are 4 to 8 times higher than regular reefer containers.The company will provide ultra-freezer services on the following routes: Busan (Korea) – Barcelona (Spain), Busan (Korea) – Shimizu (Japan), and Algeciras (Spain) – Yokohama (Japan).Additionally, HMM said it completed its pilot operation of Internet of Things (IoT) technology on reefer containers in August last year. With the IoT technology, cargo status will be checked and managed live on-time. Combining the blockchain technology with the IoT technology will also expand the range of IT system in shipping industry, according to HMM.last_img read more
