Houston’s Handling Hike Hints at Steel Tariff Failure

Cargo handling through Port Houston climbed 13% in July vs. a year earlier due to a 15% rise in container handling and a 28% improvement in steel. The latter is notable in not having been curtailed by the Trump administration’s wide ranging duties. The improvement in container handling was driven by a 19% surge in imports with most of the major container lines benefiting. Looking ahead though widening tariffs on exports from China may trim the handling by COSCO Shipping (83% of inbound shipping from China) and CMA-CGM (38%). NAFTA negotiations may also be relevant given the importance of Mexico in particular for Hapag-Lloyd (39%) and MSC (29%).

Trump-Juncker Follow-up Agenda – Set Ground Rules, Avoid Car Wars, Deliver Food

Talks start on August 20 to formalize commitments made by President Trump and President Juncker to cut duties between the U.S. and EU while boosting EU imports from America. At a minimum the talks need to confirm what structure a deal will take. It will likely need to be transactional rather than being a formal FTA to avoid Trade Promotion Authority consultations. Nonetheless it will still be significant given the U.S. merchandise trade deficit with the EU was $159 billion in the 12 months to June 30. The automotive industry needs to be central to discussions with $63 billion of EU exports to the U.S. threatened by America’s section 232 “national security” review. EU automakers appear concerned about changes with July vehicle shipments to the U.S. up 9% on a year earlier after a 14% surge in the second quarter. While increased purchases of soybeans and LNG will be on the agenda an agreement on grains (the EU imported just 4% of American corn and 3% of wheat exports) and meat (0.2% of pork and poultry) could also yield significant benefits.

Container-line Margins At Hanjin-Era Levels Unlikely to Correct Sickly Shipyard Situation

Exports from shipyards in China, Japan and South Korea fell by 49% on a year earlier in July to $4.1 billion. That was driven by a 73% slump in South Korea from abnormally high levels in 2017. Exports from China climbed 43% while an increase in orders a month earlier suggests a further expansion is possible. Container-lines continue to prefer their local yards, shown most recently by Yang Ming’s 39.2k TEU order, with aggregate orders across the top 100 shippers remaining constant over the past year at 11% of installed capacity. A more rapid expansion in orders is being held back by the container-lines’ profitability. The eight liners to report so far have shown a contraction in their EBITDA margin to 5% from 10% a year earlier. That was the lowest since 3Q 2016 when Hanjin Shipping’s financial failure began.

Steel Surplus Sloshing Into India May Drive Safeguarding Drive

India’s steel ministry is considering applying wide ranging “safeguarding” measures against steel exports from South Korea and Japan after a 47% surge in total imports in the second quarter on a year earlier. That resulted in a record high in June and $11 billion of imports in the past year. The increase partly reflects exporters finding alternative markets after the U.S. imposed similar measures earlier in the year. Shipments from South Korea were the biggest contributor to growth after they jumped 58% to reach 22% of the total while Japan’s increased 45%. Should the Indian government prefer focused measures against South Korea and Japan then shipments of hot-rolled coil ($1.3 billion imported in the past 12 months) provide the largest target.
