All-inclusive spot market rates depressed as Shanghai lockdown tightens https://timorseajustice.org/all-inclusive-spot-market-rates-depressed-as-shanghai-lockdown-tightens/ Sun, 15 May 2022 18:00:59 +0000 https://timorseajustice.org/all-inclusive-spot-market-rates-depressed-as-shanghai-lockdown-tightens/ Premium spot bookings from Chinese base ports remained under pressure in the week to May 13 amid muted demand for Chinese export cargoes.

Premium spot bookings from Chinese base ports remained under pressure in the week to May 13 amid muted demand for Chinese export cargoes.

As Shanghai wraps up another week of coronavirus shutdowns, production capacity and resulting export volumes have continued to fall – keeping rates under pressure – despite a rise in canceled sailings as liners try to make up for a downward trend in rates.

“China’s continued zero-tolerance policy towards COVID in 2022 has created an ever-present threat of port closures and operational restrictions, as seen in both Ningbo and Shanghai. Alongside the Chinese New Year, these restrictions will likely have eased some burden on outbound volume flows from China, but have also likely created an additional backlog,” market analyst Sea-Intelligence said in a May 11 report.

Authorities said on May 13 that Shanghai’s restrictions were to be lifted from May 20, but sources note it will take much longer for production capacity to resume.

In the week to May 13, S&P Global Commodity Insights heard most deals traded on an FAK basis, as justification for premium loadings and disport allowances was thin amid large pockets of available FAK space. However, sources suggest that priority equipment, loading and transit fees may still command a premium of $1,000 to $3,000 over FAK base rates.

“Premiums are definitely coming down, they really aren’t there,” said a US-based freight forwarder, adding that FAK rates are holding up despite weak demand.

Further decline in the Southeast Asian market

All-inclusive premium rates on the Southeast Asia-North America route fell further during the week ended May 13 as continued uncertainty surrounding North Asia operations further helped the Asia market Southeast, according to sources.

During the week, S&P Global heard all-inclusive booking rates from Indonesia to the East Coast of North America (ECNA) at $13,600/FEU, and $10,100/FEU to the East Coast. Western North America, or WCNA. That’s down from the $14,000/FEU (ECNA) and $13,000/FEU (WCNA) values ​​heard in the market during the week ended April 29, sources said.

“The situation in China [lockdown and limited industrial activity] will take at least until June to get back to normal,” said an Indonesia-based freight forwarder, adding that this has helped all-inclusive booking rates to come down as carriers now have additional capacity to deploy in the region until at least the end of May.

From Singapore, all-inclusive fares have been heard as low as $12,000/FEU to ECUS and $10,125/FEU to the West Coast. However, rates have also been heard around $15,000/FEU for some North American base ports from Singapore.

In the South Asian market, all-inclusive booking rates from Bangladesh to the East Coast of North America were between $16,000 and $22,000/FEU.

“Depending on the carrier, we pay between $16,000 and $22,000/FEU. Significantly higher than others [India]said a Bangladesh-based logistics provider. “However, the situation at the port [Dhaka] is much better.

On Friday morning, workers in protective gear were scraping off the lead paint and an excavator with a large metal claw tore up the vessels for easier removal on a flatbed truck. It marked the last voyage for most lifeboats after no qualified bidders showed up to buy them in Long Beach.

As part of several critical safety projects for the Queen Mary, Long Beach this week began the process of removing 14 of the lifeboats hanging from the deteriorating liner.

The boats, which are about 36 feet long and weigh around 12,000 pounds, were removed from the ship in February via a large crane after the city determined they were a safety hazard and at risk of falling .

Of the ship’s total 22 lifeboats, three have been identified for retention, including two that were left on the ship. Five have been set aside for future review, city officials said.

“Removing nearly 100 tons of weight alleviated significant stresses from the vessel’s side hull and allowed for other critical repairs to be made to the internal support system,” the city said in a statement Friday. “Additional work for internal structural repairs began this month and is expected to be completed later this year.”

The city was dismantling the boats in accordance with safety and environmental regulations, while working to identify certain parts that could be saved and creatively reused, including props, rudders and other artifacts of interest, said officials.

Long Beach has auctioned off the boats for museums, preservation groups and developers who may want to take any or all of the boats for catering. The city said it also engaged with local, regional and national historic and preservation organizations, but ultimately only two proposals were submitted, and neither met the city’s requirements to show how they would safely transport and repair ships.

In a costly caveat, any winner would have had to provide their own transport to transport the ships out of the Queen Mary car park, and they would also have had to sign a liability waiver since the boats contain lead paint.

Completed in Clydebank, Scotland in 1936, Queen Mary originally had two smaller lifeboats and 22 lifeboats, seating up to 145 passengers.

An assessment by architectural consultancy Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates found that 15 of the boats are original Queen Mary, while the rest may be from other liners.

The Queen Mary remains closed to the public while the city completes $5 million in critical safety repairs. The city plans to reopen the ship later this year.

A report released last year by marine engineering firm Elliott Bay Design Group said the Queen Mary would need $23 million in urgent safety repairs to remain “viable” over the next two years. A 2016 marine survey found the ship would need $289 million in repairs.

The next round of critical repairs will include improvements to the ship’s bilge pump systems and bulkheads, which support structural stability and help shed water in the event of flooding.

The city will also continue carry out minor repairs, including painting, lighting and other maintenance work.

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to reflect new details from the city about Queen Mary’s lifeboats and repair projects.

In the extremely specific world of high-end men’s accessories and vintage barware, few sellers are as impressive or mysterious as Mr Jack. The online-only company, founded in 2012 and based in Boston, keeps the identity of its founders anonymous and provides little information about its operators.

Whatever they are, they taste great. In addition to being an authorized retailer of brands including Olivier Peoples and Persolhe stocks his own house brand encompassing the alligator belt strapsSterling silver badger brushesox horn whiskey glasses and other rakish goods.

But perhaps the real treasure lies in the hundreds of unique antiques it contains, ranging from a rare first edition of The book of Savoyard cocktails silver plated champagne buckets used on ocean liners from the 1920s to the WWI era shaker shaped like an artillery shell. According to a business leader who identified himself as Oswaldo Cavidini, the diverse inventory is unified by its “classic, timeless sophistication.”

“We strive to offer a unique luxury shopping destination, whether you are looking for a rare Art Deco poster, alligator wallet or tube of toothpaste,” He continued.

Asked about the name of the company, Cavidini says: “The designation ‘Monsieur’ is not a self-imposed retribution, but rather a function of the items we sell. For example, if someone sees a gentleman walking down the street and he is well dressed with a suit and tie, he is more likely to say “Excuse me sir” rather than “Move him sir!” » The image makes the man and we are here to help you.

Cavidini adds that the company, which is privately held, continues to grow and counts celebrities, movie studios and members of royal families among its clientele. He’s also accepting large special orders, citing the example of a recently wrapped film production that bought 200 gifts for its cast and crew.

Fortunately, belonging to the SAG or the royal line is not a prerequisite for attending Sir Jack’s. If you’d like to become a customer yourself, we’ve asked Cavidini to highlight some of their favorite pieces below.

Marysol Patton and Adriana De Moura are the queens of The Real Housewives of Miami and after running Season 4 they are set to return as full-time castmates.

Adriana De Moura and Marysol Patton are classic protagonists of The Real Housewives of Miami, and after scene-stealing performances as friends of the show in Season 4, they deserve to return as full-time cast members. Marysol and her bejeweled goblet had the best one-liners of all in her interviews. Meanwhile, Adriana continued to reign as the life of the party.

In the first years of RHOM, Marysol married Philippe Pautesta-Herder before agreeing to their impending divorce with a cigarette facing the ocean. After their chapter ended, his larger-than-life mother, Elsa Patton, became his life partner and accomplice in all things. RHOM. Adriana was in the middle of the Mojito range at the time, thanks to her larger than life energy. Her story centered around her marriage to Frederic Marq and the dissolution of her friendship with Leah Black. She’s confident, assertive, unabashed, a never-ending flirt, and time hasn’t changed her.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

After Elsa’s death, the rest of the RHOM suggested that Marysol was channeling her. In Season 4, the wise Marysol was gone. She had returned to show off as an alpha Cuban queen, unafraid to stir the pot and establish her authority over newcomers. When she proposed to the ladies to play a game of “who do they trust less, Marysol called Nicole Martin saying: “I know a lot of people who know you, and I know what you said. You called her a prostitute.” As Adriana noted, Marysol “may be the nicest girl,” but if someone crosses her, it’s over. Marysol joked as she sipped her co*kies, her cheeky nickname for cocktails, that the trip was off to a good start. Without Marysol, a vacation ground was nowhere in sight.


As for Adriana, the queen of mojitos hasn’t strayed from the spotlight. Adrian always knows how to steal the show, from stripping in Larsa Pippen’s bathtub and posting it on Instagram, to being proposed by Julia Lemigova and flirting with everyone in sight. At the end of season 4, Adriana clashed with Larsa just as Marysol started the season by taking on Nicole. While having dinner with Larsa and Kiki Barth, Adriana said she accidentally met Kanye West during Art Basel a decade before in the bathroom and got a full frontal view. Larsa declined to carry on the ridiculous conversation out of respect for his friendship with Kanye and his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. The refusal to discuss it turned into a fight that resulted in Alexia Echevarria’s bachelorette party.


Although they fall under the tag of a friend on the show, Marysol and Adriana were central to every event and storyline in Season 4. Julia’s story revolved around Adriana while Alexia’s revolved around around Marysol. The reboot just wouldn’t have been the same without them. Bravo probably didn’t recast Adriana and Marysol as housewives in order to shake things up and not fall into the stale issues that canceled the show. However, with such a big impact on Season 4 and dying audiences for more of them, The Real Housewives of Miami Season 5 would be doing itself a disservice if it didn’t bring Marysol and Adriana back to center stage.

Liam Neeson has been in operation for more than four decades. The hit titan covered every genre, from drama to horror, to musicals, to romance, to comedy, to action. It’s no surprise that Neeson has retained his A-list star status, given that he continues to expand his comfort zone, even become a real action star well into their 50s with the ever-popular Taken In 2008.

To say the actor has reach would be an understatement, which is why he has so many fans from so many demographics. With so many movies under his belt since 1978, we decided to take a look at the legendary comedian’s work and narrow it down to his top 12 films.

It’s not easy to pick just ten movies from a filmography that includes over 100 acting credits. Neeson is a workaholic, and it shows in every frame. It’s no wonder authors such as Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese have chosen to work with him over the years. Neeson appeals to everyone and all genders, and this list reflects that.

Update: If you’re here for Liam Neeson and all his great work, you’ll be glad to know that this article was updated by Jessica Gardner in May 2022.

12 dark man

Before playing in batman beginsNeeson played a superhero from Frankenstein-esque proportions in dark man. Directed by Sam Raimi and written as an ode to universal monster movies, dark man is a bloody, strange and tragic film that Neeson’s Dr. Peyton Wilder carries on his mutilated back. At the time, Neeson was a relatively unknown actor, but Universal rolled the dice on the casting due to both Raimi the evil Dead the success of the franchise and the success of Tim Burton’s Batman the previous year. Contrary to Schindler’s list, released three years later, Neeson’s Dr. Wilder is loud, boisterous and unpredictable. It’s a fun performance to revisit.

11 love in fact

In love in fact Neeson plays a widower named Daniel who comes to terms with the loss of his beloved wife, while staying behind to raise his stepson Sam. While helping his young son through his own grief, his son is discovered to be in love with a of his classmates, Joanna. The pair eventually bond over a social experiment of helping Sam get his crush’s attention, which includes learning an instrument to play in the school talent show.

ten Grey

Although on its surface it looks like a Neeson vs. Arctic Wolves action movie, it’s also a thoughtful meditation on death and the fleeting nature of life. One of Neeson’s first forays into the action genre, Grey was filmed under conditions as brutal as the attacks of the wolves on the characters. Neeson shot the film seven hours a night in -35 degrees, with the cameras, cast and crew constantly freezing, while still managing to deliver a compelling performance. He delivers the film’s verbal motif with irresistible passion, “Once more into the fray. In the last good fight, I’ll never know. Live and die this day. Live and die this day.” With such nuance, it gives audiences chills akin to being in the sub-zero wilderness of Alaska.


9 A monster is calling

In A monster is calling, Neeson voices the monster, and his deep, growling voice is perfect for the voice-over performance. As close to a family movie on this list, Neeson’s tree monster, simply named “The Monster,” initially a source of fear for the boy in the film, ultimately serves as a sounding board and vehicle to help him make facing his dying mother while she endures her chemotherapy treatments. In a tale of allegorical stories, childhood fantasies and escapism, Neeson delivers one of his finest performances to date.

8 The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

In another popular voice role, Neeson takes on the mystical King of Beasts Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia film series, although he’s featured in every film in the franchise, his role is most prominent in the first installment. Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Neeson’s unique voice is the perfect pair for the wise and all-knowing Aslan, who author CS Lewis says portrays Jesus Christ in the books. Neeson does for the Chronicles of Narnia what James Earl Jones did for The Lion King.


7 Taken

You’ve probably quoted Neeson’s iconic “I’ll Find You” monologue in that film, or at least heard your friends, acquaintances, or various pop culture parodies do so. In Taken, Neeson embodies a man with very special skills who, after the kidnapping of his daughter, embarks on a solo killing spree to save her. It was the film that solidified Neeson as an action star and sparked two successful sequels. Yet this film remains the best of the trilogy, simply because audiences had not been exposed to the physical dexterity, vengeful tone of voice and explosive anger that Neeson had buried within him, and the revenge formula of the trilogy was fresh and exciting.

6 honest thief

honest thief places Neeson at the center of an FBI scandal. As a former bank robber wanted by federal authorities, Neeson’s character, Tom Dolan, another former Marine, makes a deal with the FBI, only to be double-crossed, as the agents who capture him are looking for the money he stored. Dolan wasn’t in it for the money, but rather for the thrill of getting away with breaking the law. Punch fights, car chases and unexpected explosions – these are all ingredients for a great Neeson action movie, in which, of course, the seasoned actor always emerges victorious. Neeson was generally praised by critics for his ability to carry the film.


5 The sniper

One of Neeson’s most recent and current action thrillers, The sniper shows rancher Jim Hanson taking on a Mexican cartel. Jim, a former marine becomes the protector of a young Mexican fleeing the sicarios of the cartel. After calling the Border Patrol, things only get worse and Jim must come to terms with the damage he has caused, so he decides to take the young boy to his family in Chicago. The sniper is a dark story of corruption, failure and redemption. Neeson is generally strong as a quiet farmer turned badass caretaker, willing to put his life on the line for justice – a common theme across all of his action characters.

4 The ice road

Someone had to make an ice road trucker thriller, which a hugely popular show was made on. And fans and critics alike were glad they did it with Neeson leading the cast. The ice road tells the story of an ice driver who embarks on an impossible rescue mission after a diamond mine collapses in a remote area of ​​Canada. Neeson must cross a frozen ocean to save the lives of miners trapped in the crash, as the ocean thaws and the threat of corrupt insurance company agents closes in on him. Neeson plays a subdued, albeit resolute character, suffering from both PTSD and aphasia, admirably expressing mental illness. Netflix bought the rights to the film for the hefty sum of $18 million.


3 batman begins

Christopher Nolan’s first movie The Dark Knight Trilogy, batman begins took an entirely new and serious direction in the superhero genre – one that films like this would attempt to emulate in years to come. Neeson brought popular villain Ra’s al Ghul to life from the DC comics with both pathos and cunning intelligence. Standing at 6’4″, Neeson’s on-screen presence intimidates even young Bruce Wayne throughout the film. It doesn’t hurt that Neeson brings a fair amount of combat prowess and smart, tangy one-liners to his performance. It’s an iconic role he would return to in the third and final chapter of the trilogy, The dark knight rises.

2 Silence

Silencea 159-minute film based on the true story of 17th-century Jesuit priests (played by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver), who embark on a journey to Japan to rescue their mentor (Neeson), marks Neeson’s second film with Scorsese after New York Gangs. Neeson gives a moderate performance. Through his character, who denounced Jesus, became a Buddhist, and inherited a Japanese family of executed Japanese Christian men, Scorsese creates a cautionary tale of the perils of missionaries crossing their borders, as the Japanese people have never had need to be saved. Neeson lost nearly 20 during the difficult production schedule. Although Silence isn’t Scorsese’s most popular film, it’s a passion project he spent thirty years trying to achieve, and that says a lot about the fact that he chose Neeson as one of his main characters.


1 Schindler’s list

Arguably Steven Spielberg’s most critically acclaimed film, Schindler’s list, based on the true story of Oskar Schindler, made Neeson a star. The film covers Schindler’s establishment of an enamel factory employing essential Jewish workers to prevent them from being taken to concentration camps, his close relationship with the Nazi SS, his change of heart to save as many Jews as possible and its ultimate prevention of the kidnapping of Jews. from the city of Brünnlitz to Auschwitz. Through Spielberg’s use of black, white, and red, he emphasizes Schindler’s turnaround, which Neeson describes so eloquently. Neeson doesn’t play a man with a perfect moral compass, and the intricacies of that are portrayed to perfection thanks to his subtle facial expressions and soft voice.

Container lines will post more all-time highs for the first quarter, but could this mark their profit peak? Evidence of market softening continues to mount in the container equipment sector.

The more consumer demand and port congestion increase, the more container lines and leasing companies pay for newly manufactured containers, the higher the output of Chinese container factories, the longer the ocean liners lease containers, the more liners pay to rent them and the higher the sale. price of older boxes when leases expire.

Officers of Triton International (NYSE: TRTN), the world’s largest container rental company, said in a conference call on Tuesday that box production was down, prices for new containers were down, durations and rental rates were falling and the prices of old containers on the secondary market were falling.

Down – but still higher than any previous year except 2021.

“When we look at the market, we say, boy, this is actually a really nice market,” said Brian Sondey, CEO of Triton. “If you had transported us from 2015 to here, it would be amazing. But compared to unprecedented shortages and unprecedented prices last year, that’s down a bit. »

Sondey described last year as “an extreme shortage of containers” and the current market as “still quite tight” but “not as extraordinary as 2021” and “more of a steady market”.

New container equipment market

The world’s containers are built by a very small number of producers in China. Production in 2021 was by far the highest on record, at 7.18 million twenty-foot equivalent units, according to Drewry. Production in 2022 “is well below last year’s pace,” said John O’Callaghan, Triton’s global head of marketing and operations.

Shipping lines “have been more cautious about their container growth [equipment] fleets this year,” Sondey said. Leasing companies are also ordering fewer boxes. “When prices change, leasing companies can be a little more careful” in their own orders, Sondey said.

Chart: Triton Q1 2022 presentation. Price in $ per TEU

The average price for new containers was around $4,000 per TEU in mid-2021. Three months ago, when Triton released its latest quarterly results, it had fallen to $3,400 per TEU. Now, O’Callaghan said prices were “just under $3,000.”

That’s a 25% drop from the peak, though still higher than pre-COVID prices. Sondey described July 2021’s high container prices as “a condition we’ve never seen before”, noting that “the market just can’t stay at this level forever”.

For liners that lease new containers from companies like Triton, instead of ordering them for their own account, rental rates are also down from 2021 highs. “Container prices are now also reflected in rental rates,” confirmed Sondey.

The liners leased boxes from Triton for average terms of 12 to 13 years in 2021. The term reverted to 10 years in 2022. “I think that just reflects the prices of containers on Earth coming down a bit,” said Sondey said. “When container prices…are no longer near $4,000, it is easier to spread the premium [over fewer years].”

Used Container Equipment Market

Another key indicator is the resale price of old containers coming out of leases and being sold on the secondary market (for use as storage, etc.).

Chart: Triton Q1 2022 presentation. Used container weighted average selling price index

Disposal prices hit historic highs last year as liners rolled out all the old boxes they could find and the number available for resale plummeted.

According to Sondey, “we’ve been saying for three or four quarters that our gain on sale and disposal prices needs to come down [because] they were so extraordinarily high.

“And we see prices starting to come down. We expect that to happen more…although we’re not trying to give the impression that we’re going to get back to where the sales gains were in 2019.”

The supply chain crisis is not over yet

Signals from the container equipment sector confirm an easing in liner demand from the extremes of last year. However, Triton executives have argued that the congestion story is far from over.

“We hear about [liner] customers that the bottlenecks that really plagued the shipping industry — and, I think, the economy — are still there,” Sondey said.

According to O’Callaghan, “The disruption has been exacerbated by what has happened in China’s main port areas. There is potential for further disruption on the West Coast as congestion cycles back and forth between Asia and the United States.

Asked about the effect of the shutdowns in China, Sondey said: “It’s a very uncertain situation. Typically, what we see with a disruption is that the same amount of goods wants to move. And when you see temporary disruptions, that means there are peak periods where things are flowing higher. This usually means that shipping companies need more containers in their fleet compared to the cargo they are carrying. But I don’t think anyone is brave enough to predict how it will turn out.

Triton Earnings

Inventories in the various container shipping segments have fallen since late March or early April despite expectations of record first-quarter earnings and continued strong earnings throughout the year.

An example of this is Triton, which posted record net income of $181.2 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to net income of $129.3 million in the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted earnings per share of 2, $78 topped the analyst consensus of $2.63. As of Tuesday’s close, Triton’s stock price was down 12% from its 52-week high on March 23, despite rising 5% on the day of the earnings beat.

Triton expects to earn less in the second quarter of 2022 than in the second quarter of 2021 due to lower prices for old containers sold in the secondary market.

In terms of share price, Triton faces the same headwind as much of the public container space: earnings remain extraordinarily high by historical standards and an unprecedented amount of revenue has been locked in, but inventories are down from their highs as prices and container rates have come off last year’s all-time high.

“We keep trying to say that we think it’s not a matter of earnings trajectory. It’s where they are and how they relate to the value of the business,” Sondey said.

Our main image for this week captures the bustle of the Manchester docks on a June morning in 1967. Ships unload as tugs ply their trade.

In the center is the Manchester Ship Canal Company tug MSC Sovereign, built at PK Harris and Son’s Appledore shipyard in 1957.

The 147 ton Sovereign was a familiar sight on the Manchester Ship Canal until 1988 when she moved to Birkenhead. It was dismantled in 2006.

Manchester Docks consisted of nine quays marking the upper part of the ship canal.

They were part of the Port of Manchester from 1894 until their closure in 1982.

The docks were divided into two sections – Salford Docks to the west of the Trafford Road Swing Bridge and Pomona Docks to the east.

Manchester was Britain’s third busiest port in 1948 after Hull suffered damage in the Blitz.

Coastal and ocean-going ships used Manchester’s docks, as well as ocean liners carrying passengers to Canadian ports.

But the decline set in in the 1970s, as containerization required larger ships that were simply too big for the shipping channel.

After closing in 1982, the docks became derelict. Salford City Council purchased the area in 1984 and adopted the Salford Quays Development Plan in 1985.

From 1986 to 1990, the quays were transformed with new bridges, roads and a promenade. Housing, offices, a cinema and a hotel were also built.

Our modern image from 2015 shows part of the old docks looking towards Media City in Salford.

Is there a risk to using plastic liners in your slow cooker? https://timorseajustice.org/is-there-a-risk-to-using-plastic-liners-in-your-slow-cooker/ Sat, 30 Apr 2022 01:00:00 +0000 https://timorseajustice.org/is-there-a-risk-to-using-plastic-liners-in-your-slow-cooker/ With a low risk of chemical-related illness and a big reduction in cleanup time, slow cooker liners may seem like the perfect addition to the kitchen; however, there are other pros and cons to consider before purchasing a box.

With a low risk of chemical-related illness and a big reduction in cleanup time, slow cooker liners may seem like the perfect addition to the kitchen; however, there are other pros and cons to consider before purchasing a box. For one thing, they’re not the cheapest. A box of four bags of the aforementioned standard-size Reynolds liners is $9.99 at walmart. While it won’t break the bank, it could add up if you use your slow cooker regularly, especially considering a BBC report noting that an important part of the slow cooker’s appeal is its cost effectiveness.

Another major concern people have with slow cooker liners stems from a different kind of safety: environmental safety. There’s no getting around it, crockpot liners are single-use plastics, which means they end up in landfills, or worse, the ocean. Crystal’s Kitchen Utensil Center notes that not only are the liners single-use, but they are non-biodegradable since they are made of nylon. This material allows them to withstand heat of up to 400 degrees, but unfortunately makes them a pain for the planet.

If you’ve found other ways to reduce your carbon footprint and are comfortable with a little more plastic for convenience, there are other benefits to using these bags. Mainly, according to The family freezerwhether you enjoy giving prepared meals to your friends to cook at their convenience, or whether you have a disability that limits your hand mobility, making the lack of necessary cleaning an even bigger bonus.
