Maersk Bolsters Suez as Canal Competition Set to Heat Up

Maersk’s APM Terminals is set to expand operations at the Suez Canal Container Terminal. While the Suez Canal saw a 5.6% year over year increase in traffic in the 12 months to Apr. 30, transits by container-ships fell 0.8%. Activity through Suez has continued to outpace that through the Panama Canal with a 6.5% year over year expansion in the month of April versus a 0.8% decline for Panama. Competition between the two will intensify as the U.S.-China trade war worsens, particularly for U.S. east-coast bound traffic. Imports from eight Asian countries to the U.S. east coast climbed 15.9% year over year in April versus a 4.9% slide in shipments to the west coast.

Tariff Quote Watch: GoPro on Track to Shutter China Capacity, Open in Mexico

GoPro is on track to shift much of its production to Mexico from China in response to U.S. tariffs by 2H 2019. That’s being done “to insulate us against possible tariffs” according to CFO Brian McGee. The move has proven well-timed following the Trump administration’s decision on May 10 to increase tariffs on Chinese exports, including most types of camera, to 25% from 10%. GoPro isn’t the first manufacturer to follow the strategy – total U.S. imports of cameras from China fell 17% year over year in 1Q 2019, offset by a 57.7% surge in imports from Mexico. In the meantime GoPro’s seaborne imports of cameras fell 6.1% year over year in 1Q and were unchanged in April.

Hapag Lloyd’s Success Not All It Seems, But Still Solid

Hapag-Lloyd reported 1Q 2019 revenues that surged 16.9% higher year over year. That was largely down to a strengthening dollar, excluding which the container-line’s revenues rose by 8.6%. The increase was driven by a 2.4% increase in volumes including transpacific volumes that fell by 1.1%. Given Asia-to-U.S. West Coast handling increased by 3.8% year over year that would suggest backhaul volumes were particularly weak. The second quarter looks set for a surge in activity after Hapag-Lloyd’s April volumes climbed 5.3% year over year on Asia-to-USWC routes and by 12.0% on all other routes. A jump in the company’s EBITDA margin was in part explained by lease accounting, though the adjusted figure of 12.7% was still well above last year’s 8.4%. The firm’s performance was helped by lower fuel costs and apparent discipline on pricing.

Trump’s Partly Right on Who Pays as Tariff Burden Sharing Emerges

The Trump administration’s decision to raise tariffs on “list 3” Chinese exports, worth $201.3 billion in the 12 months to Mar. 31, could add $30.2 billion to the past 12 months’ $59.4 billion of customs duties collected. While it is U.S. importers, not Chinese exporters, that pay duties there is evidence of burden sharing in the form of lower U.S. import prices from China. Overall import prices from China fell 1.1% in April versus a year earlier. The most marked decrease was in the chemicals sector where there was an average decline of 5.8% in prices after 44.5% of the sector’s imports were hit by tariffs in September. Other sectors seeing significant import price declines include communications equipment and computers, even though smartphones and laptops have yet to face tariffs.
