P&G, PepsiCo may face challenge from record Transatlantic shipping costs

Container shipping rates for Europe-to-North America routes surged 25% in the week to April 12 to reach a record high of $3,000 per FEU. Disruptions linked to the Suez Canal blockage as well as elevated demand are major drivers. U.S. seaborne imports from European ports have not grown significantly recently though with growth of just 1.1% year over year in March, led by a 13.8% increase in shipments to Norfolk, Va. The impact of a rate spike may not have a sustained impact on the largest importers who sign annual contracts, though rate negotiations for the coming year are ongoing. Rapidly expanding importers in the fast moving consumer sectors may face particular challenges. Imports linked to Procter & Gamble and Barry Callebaut increased by 11.4% and 7.5% year over year in March. Others who were growing swiftly have slowed more recently. Shipments linked to PepsiCo fell by 17.8% in March after a 46.7% surge in February.

WTO fish focus about more than just fish, Chile export growth mixed

The WTO’s Director General, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has stated talks this week regarding fishery subsidy rules require success as it “is a top priority for this organization, not only for the fisheries, but also for the WTO system”. The WTO sorely needs to show success in unifying trade policy given the challenges faced to its dispute settlement process. The largest fish exporters in 2019 were Norway and China with 11.8% and 8.1% respectively of the $119.5 billion of global trade, while among the most exposed countries were Chile with 5.4% of global exports while fish accounted for 8.8% of the country’s exports. Exports of fish from Chile climbed by 2.3% year over year in the three months to Jan. 31, driven by improved exports to the U.S. and Japan while those to China and Russia fell. There’s been a marked difference in performance between Chile’s exporters with shipments linked to Blumar having climbed by 54.6% in the past three months while those associated with Compañía Pesquera Camanchaca fell by 46.2%.

DP-DHL boosts outlook as forwarders’ shipping boom continues

DP-DHL has upgraded its 2021 outlook after reporting a 221% increase in Q1’21 EBIT which included a 195% rise in the firm’s freight forwarding operations. Volumes of air- and seafreight have improved while shipping rates have “stayed at attractive levels”. U.S. seaborne imports linked to the firm climbed 63.8% year over year in March, driven by a 247% jump in shipments from China which were also 133.5% higher than March 2019. The surge in import activity is not unique to DP-DHL. Indeed, it was one of the slower growing freight forwarders in March with the fastest growth being delivered by DeWell and Orient Star with growth of 282% and 276% respectively. Amazon’s freight forwarding operations increased by 258%. At the other end of the scale the slowest growth was DB Schenker’s 7.3%.

Ports miss March off-peak lull as shipping demand remains elevated

Union truck drivers at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have started a strike. While so far focused on a single logistics firm it does raise the specter of industrial action adding to the ports’ congestion challenges. Seaborne imports to the ports of LA and Long Beach climbed 98.3% year over year in March and by 65.7% versus the same period of 2019. Historically March has been the lowest import month of the year, with elevated shipments potentially storing up problems for later if maintenance and vacations are delayed, The larger ports have also seen faster growth due to the increased use of the largest container vessels. Imports to the ports of Newark / New York climbed by 52.5% in March while those into Savannah rose by 64.0%. Smaller ports including Port Everglades and New Orlean saw declining volumes.
