ONE Love From Customers Still Returning As Outlook Worsens

Container-line Ocean Network Express has warned that its revenues for the current fiscal year (through March 31 2019) will be 11% lower than it previously expected and it now expects to make a significant loss rather than a profit. ONE’s problems are not new and stem from “teething problems” with IT experienced at its launch in April. That’s led to it underperforming its peers with an 8% drop in China-to-U.S. volumes in the fiscal first half year (through September 30) vs. a year earlier compared to a 3% increase for all container-lines. The company insists improvements are underway though in calendar 3Q its total U.S.-inbound volumes rose by 10% vs. a national average of 13%.

August Trade Battle Lost as U.S. Goods Deficit Hits Record on Bean and Car Slump

The U.S. trade deficit surged 21% higher in August vs. a year earlier, including a 17% jump in the goods deficit to a record $77 billion. The most significant gain in the goods deficit was with China with an 11% increase to $39 billion. The widening trade war between the U.S. and China did not appear to go America’s way in August. Imports rose by 5% while exports to China fell by 14%, the first decline since January. Much of that was accounted for by four product groups including a 95% slump in soybeans and a 56% drop in passenger car exports resulting from retaliatory duties. State-owned enterprise purchases of aircraft and oil – the latter of which fell to zero – also had a marked effect.

Ta Chen Finds That If Metals Tariffs Mean You Can’t Beat Them, Buy Them

Taiwanese pipe maker Ta Chen International will acquire an aluminum plant from Arconic in Texas. Ta Chen’s CEO, Robert Shieh, has indicated that’s a response to section 232 duties on both steel and aluminum products that were implemented in March. The firm’s U.S. imports have declined steadily with a 35% drop in the three months to August 31 vs. the first quarter of 2018. The deal should address most of Ta Chen’s commercial needs. Aluminum products, led by alloy plate, accounted for 60% of its U.S. imports in the past 12 months. The remainder, including stainless steel pipes, will still have tariffs applied which may make further acquisitions desirable.

China Sells More, Buys Less From America, Raising Tariff Escalation Risk

China’s international trade activity continued to surge in September with a 17% increase in both exports and imports on a year earlier. That marked the fastest growth since June 2017 and came despite a slump in business sentiment towards trade to its lowest since February 2016. Increased shipments to the U.S. ahead of the imposition of duties on $200 billion of exports was a significant factor with exports having risen 14% to a record high. By contrast Chinese imports from the U.S. fell 1% – retaliation is proving effective. That may be a risk going forward though as the resulting trade surplus vs. the U.S. over the past year has reached 5.7x that vs. the rest of the world combined. Absent a marked reversal that will count against a rapprochement between President Xi and President Trump at the forthcoming G20 summit.
