Big Easy Has Big Challenges as Container Volumes Slide

Container volumes handled by the port of New Orleans fell 2% on a year earlier in February, the third straight decline and the result of a 5% slide in imports. While that was slower than the 7% decline experienced nationally, the port’s high exposure to south America was a problem as inbound volumes from there fell as much as 25%, Panjiva data shows. Exports did better with a 2% rise, matching a pattern seen across east- and west-coast ports. Going forward other challenges for the port include regional competition from expanding activity around Mobile, and continued extreme weather conditions as seen last August.

Mexican Cucumbers Highlight the Risks From a Hawkish NAFTA Stance

The Mexican region of Oaxaca has approved exports of cucumbers to the U.S. as part of its push to expand agricultural earnings. These will only add around 0.6% to total exports of cucumbers to the U.S., but are indicative of the risks Mexico faces in forthcoming trade talks. The government has struck a hawkish tone in looking for alternative suppliers of produce to Mexico, but the impact of retaliation by the U.S. in limiting Mexican exports would be felt by small producers. As an example cucumbers are shipped to the U.S. by over 480 producers, and the top 20 have only a 46% share of the export market.

Venezuela Generates $850 million Surplus, Struggles for Food

Panjiva data for Venezuela’s trade with its five largest trading partners show that it likely generated a $850 million trade surplus in January, or $4.7 billion in the past 12 months. That was the result of an 18% drop in imports compared to a year earlier, with Brazilian and Colombian shipments falling to new lows. Yet, the country is reported to be facing food shortages. Oil shipments to the U.S. and China , the mainstay of exports, fell in the two months to January 31 by 6%. With prices rising that implies a 12% slide in volumes shipped, reflecting OPEC cuts that may be extended. Exports of food from Brazil, Colombia and Mexico increased 12% in terms of number of shipments, but are still just 19% of 2013 levels.

Trump’s First Deficit Drops, But Ross’s NAFTA Review is AWOL

The first U.S. trade deficit data wholly under the Trump administration showed a drop to $65 billion for February from $69 billion in January. That was also below the $67 billion expected by economists. Import growth of 4.5% was the result of a 28% jump in industrial supplies due to energy prices negating lower seaborne imports of consumer goods. Growth of 6% in agricultural and auto exports was offset by a 2% fall in capital goods. The latter is the largest trade segment, and also ‘lost’ as a result of an increase in imports of 4%. All three sectors are areas of sensitivity for the forthcoming NAFTA renegotiations. Formal notice to Congress on that has yet to be forthcoming despite recent comments from Commerce Secretary Ross, as is an Executive Order calling for broader trade reviews. These may be awaiting the appointment of USTR nominee Lighthizer.
