Jets Wash Out Panama Effect as Northwest PCCI Climbs 5%

Airfreight handed by SeaTac airport jumped 34% on a year earlier in January as a result of DHL Express having moved its hub there in May 2016. That included a 30% expansion in international imports, showing the importance of the airport as a hub. That far outpaced the performance from the local seaports. These handled 8% fewer incoming containers than a year earlier. That was likely due to a loss of market share of Asian traffic due to the expansion of the Panama Canal. Nonetheless, the impact of air traffic growth meant the Panjiva Combined Cargo Index for the northwest climbed 5% on a year earlier.

Are Department Stores Hoarding Ahead of BAT?

The U.S. department stores face threats from tariffs or border-adjustable taxes to their supply chains, which rely heavily on imports. Heading into their fourth quarter earnings reports, imports of the types of products they sell (apparel, accessories and furniture) have increased 7% in the fiscal fourth quarter (to January 31) on a year earlier. That compares to an increase of only 0.3% the previous quarter. A 13% growth in furnishings and 7% growth in handbag imports offset a 1% fall in apparel. The 7% product rise compares to analysts’ estimates for a 1% revenue decline – restocking of inventories may explain the difference. That would suggest they are hoarding ahead of any tariff or tax changes. Kohl’s exemplifies this – its imports increased 7% while analysts expect its revenues to fall 3%.

Italian Trade Ends 2016 On a High, More to Come In January

Italian trade growth continued in December, with exports and imports rising 6% according to official figures. The rise in imports was due to a 16% jump in crude oil imports that was tied to higher prices. Exports to the EU climbed 7%, but the main success was shipments to the U.S. which increased 12% in December. More of the same looks likely in January, with U.S.-bound freight increasing a further 11%, according to Panjiva data. That rise was driven by building materials and wine.

Trump Not the Only Enemy For China as Remedies Rise

The Chinese government has warned that it will take “all necessary measures” to deal with what it sees as the “abuse of trade remedies”. This is most likely aimed at the Trump administration’s aims to reduce its trade deficit, possibly by treating currency manipulation as a subsidy. However, the U.S. only accounted for 13% of all trade actions against China since 2008, with India applying more and Argentina in third place, according to Panjiva’s analysis of WTO data. China’s announcement should be seen as part of its broader two-pronged trade strategy globally that also sees it pursuing trade deals like the RCEP.
