Gulftainer’s Big Box Plans Need Big Lots and Other Pennsylvanians to Succeed

Port operator Gulftainer will invest $600 million to build a 1.2 million TEU container terminal at the port of Wilmington, DE. Currently the port is deep-water capable but has focused on perishables. Around 66% of shipments arriving at the port in the past year were accounted for by fruit and vegetables. Wilmington could nonetheless provide a more convenient gateway for importers in Pennsylvania and the surrounding regions than Philadelphia (further upstream on the Delaware River) and even Newark. Leading importers in Pennsylvania include Electrolux (22k TEUs in the past 12 months) and Big Lots (11k TEUs). Gulftainer also needs to attract shipping lines which already service the northeast region including Philadelphia (led by MSC), Newark (including MSC and Maersk) and Norfolk (Hapag-Lloyd).

Care Needed in Assuming Beans’ Jump Means Trump Will Be Happy With EU

Trade negotiations between the U.S. (Ambassador Lighthizer) and EU (Commissioner Malmstrom) continue on 9/25 in an attempt to move forward on commitments made by President Trump and President Juncker to increase trade between the two. While they’ll focus on technical issues progress is being made on merchandise trade with EU imports of U.S. soybeans up 130% on a year earlier in the past 12 weeks, overtaking Brazil as a supplier. That may be somewhat misleading given the seasonality of the $5.8 billion imported by the EU in the past 12 months and given earlier strikes in Brazil. U.S. exports globally have also outpaced Brazil’s with a 25% rise in shipments in the past six months vs. Brazil’s 13%. Yet, boosting soybean exports is vital for American farmers as 52% of shipments in the past year went to China and now face 25% duties.

Fedex Falls For Fifth Time as Profitability Pays Competitive Price

Fedex reported a 12% increase in revenues for its fiscal 1Q including an 18% rise in freight revenues, which was marginally better than expected. The performance may reflect a more aggressive approach to competition shown by a 2% rise in U.S.-inbound maritime volumes vs. a 9% decline for UPS and 10% for Expeditors. Importantly though there was a further decline in profitability. The group’s EBITDA margin fell to 12% from 13% a year earlier, the fifth straight decline. That can be partly blamed on a 42% rise in jet fuel costs but compares to a year earlier figure that was depressed by 2% points by the notPetya virus. It was also below the 13% expected by analysts. Fedex management’s full year forecast calls for an expansion in operating profit margins and assumes “stability in global trade”. The latter may prove optimistic given the widening U.S.-China trade war.

Gap Shouldn’t Sweat It – Winter Wear and Ski Gear Avoid Duties For Another Year

Gap Inc. CEO Art Peck has flagged that the company will keep cutting its reliance on China even though duties on Chinese exports have yet to be extended to apparel by the Trump administration. That could yet change if the President chooses to extend duties to all Chinese exports, but shouldn’t be a near-term problem for some parts of the apparel industry. Imports of winter clothes, such as sweaters, peak in August and climbed 6% on a year earlier in the three months to August 31. Just 34% of sweaters shipped by sea came from China in the past 12 months, offering retailers plenty of alternatives if duties do arrive. Similarly winter sports gear imports rose 7% in the past three months with China representing 31% of the total.
