I’m just amazed at the size of shipment. Twenty tons is nothing to sneeze at.
That's just a JP Morgan happy hour.
Apparently the banking business isn't profitable enough for those crooks anymore. Contractor, my a$$.
The ship is owned by JP Morgan Chase. MSC leases the ship from Chase. Chase has no idea what's in the containers and MSC most likely doesn't know either. If the ship is seized by the Gov is it forfeited? If so who is out the value? Chase or an insurance company? Is the ship returned at some point because this is not some guys yacht who went to central America and came back to Miami?
I’m guessing this will spike ODs, as dealers will be crushing in Percocet or other stronger pulls to feed demand.
Still sinking in how much that is. I mean, 20 tons of anything is a massive amount, but that’s a lot of f’n pow!!!!
This thread, too, is full of good lines.
Airlines typically lease their planes.
Chalk it up to experience
Someone is going to receive a strict correction.
Indeed. The writer's agenda is sensationalist and transparent ... it's more like typical tabloid tripe.
Aside from being the owner of the ship (lessor), just as JPM owns many ships, planes, etc., they have nothing to do with the operations, which are the sole responsibility of the lessee. Yet this "journalist" starts most sentences with JP Morgan and mentions them several times in each paragraph, as though they're somehow culpable.
It’s what’s on the boat that’s important regardless of articles stance
No, don't get me wrong, that part's incredible! I wish it went into even more detail about the nature of the cargo, shipper, etc., but not this writer.
It's just that as a former journalist, such slanted, unprofessional pieces like this really bug me. My 'hard news' college professors would be appalled.
I would have linked other stories - however (at least for me) paywall
I think that's the key.
How do you sneak 20 tons onto a ship?
Now the United States Customs and Border Protection agency has gone through with paperwork that has the JP Morgan ship seized by it.
And I think it may be inaccurate as well. Looks like the ship has been released with seizure still on the table.
Yes airliners are leased to the carriers; ILFC and Guinness Peat (yes, that Guinness) Aviation are two of the biggest.
That is why you never see the elaborate cocktail lounges, piano bars, showers, fitness centers, etc. on planes, even though they always show that “artists’ concept” stuff when a new model is about to come on line.
The lender and lessors say “NFW!” It doesn’t add bottom line and is hard to resell a plane with too many custom options if the carrier defaults.
I was referring to grammar and sentence structure.
"Now the United States Customs and Border Protection agency has gone through with paperwork that has the JP Morgan ship seized by it. " That's almost incomprehensible.
