Seattle-Tacoma’s Recovery Likely Short-Lived as Virus Passes, Tariffs Awaited

Container handling through the ports of Seattle and Tacoma climbed 9% on a year earlier in June, representing a marked turnaround from three months of declines. That was a markedly better performance than the 4% seen in Canada’s west coast ports and inline with California’s 8%. Yet the increase in imports of 9% can be explained by a 51% surge in shipments from Canada after last year’s computer virus issues at Maersk’s facilities. Imports from China only climbed 4% ahead of the implementation of duties on $34 billion of exports. There’s nonetheless of a downturn going into the peak season. China accounted for 42% of volumes in the past 12 months with the leading container-lines being CMA-CGM, ONE and Evergreen.

Commerce Has Energy For Uranium Case as Russian Exports Charge Ahead

The U.S. Commerce Department has launched a section 232 review of the national security considerations of uranium imports. That’s not a big surprise given the “critical minerals” review that’s also ongoing and which had a Senate hearing recently. It’s likely to be broad-based, in common with the recent steel and aluminum reviews that captured historic national security allies such as Canada. The latter accounted for 30% of the $2.8 billion of American imports of uranium products in the past 12 months. Russia, where evolving relations with the U.S. may be a complicating factor, was next largest at 26% with a surge of 57% on a year earlier likely due to an expectation of the case being implemented.

K+N and Panalpina Show There’s More Than One Way to Deliver

K+N reported revenue growth of 15% on a year earlier in 2Q, reaching a record high, after beating analysts’ expectations by 7% points. That was due to a surge in the freight forwarder’s handling, including an 11% rise in ocean freight volumes in 2Q vs. a market increase of just 4%. That markedly outperformed its peer Panalpina which fell 1%, illustrating K+N’s volume-driven approach to profit growth vs. Panalpina’s margin-driven route. For example on U.S.-inbound seaborne routes K+N’s volumes rose 8% in 2Q vs. Panalpina’s 4%. While K+N’s profits (EBITDA) were 1% better than expected in absolute terms that came at the price of a 6.1% profit margin vs. 6.6% a year earlier. That may become a problem if underlying costs recover – the container-liners’ rates have improved recently – or if volumes become restricted by the expanding reach of tariffs being implemented by the U.S.

Iran’s Loss in Japan Could Be America’s Gain as Oil Sanctions Bite

Japan’s oil distributors will cut imports from Iran in response to U.S. sanctions following indications from Secretary Mnuchin that exemptions will only be temporary. That shouldn’t be an insurmountable problem given Iran accounted for just 5% of Japan’s imports in the past 12 months after a 25% decline. Major suppliers including Saudi Arabia (40%) and the UAE (25%). The sanctions also represent an opportunity for U.S. oil suppliers – so far Japan only accounted for 1% of U.S. exports. Replacing Iran in Japan would add 11% to total U.S. exports, proving particularly useful given Chinese duties on American oil exports are close at hand.
