BMI View: Air freight will be the fastest growing mode in 2016 although total volume carried by air

remains minor compared to road and rail. The mode will benefit from increased production of

pharmaceutical goods driving exports by air while road and rail will continue catering domestic freight

transport needs and trade with neighbouring countries. Inland waterways will return to positive growth

rates this year and throughput at Belgium's main sea ports will expand with their gateway role providing

gains from recovering European economies.

Key Updates And Forecasts

? Disruptions across freight modes were caused by nationwide strikes in Belgium in May and June. The

disagreement of labour unions with government policy translated into lengthy delays in ports, airports,

rail and road networks.

? TAAG Angola Airlines has been operating a new freight flight from Liege to Luanda since June,

increasing air freight capacity to Belgium.

? The Port of Antwerp signed a memorandum of understanding with Iran's Port of Shahid Rajaee in July,

targeting collaboration on improving trade between them.

? We forecast road freight to increase by 2.2% in 2016 to 311.4mn tonnes, rail freight by 2.5% to 58.7mn

tonnes and air freight by 5.1% to 1.2mn tonnes.

? We expect container traffic at Belgium's largest port, Antwerp, to increase by 5.5% to 9.9mn twenty-foot

equivalent units (TEUs) in 2016 and growth to average 6.0% over the medium term (2016-2020),

reaching 12.6mn TEUs in 2020.

? Total trade real growth in 2016 is projected at 3.8% and to average 3.9% over the medium term.

? Main trade partners will be the Netherlands, Germany, France, the US and the UK.

  • South Korea Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q4 2016
    Published: 19-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 49
    BMI View: South Korea's trade will enjoy only sedate real growth in 2016, while in nominal terms it will decline for a second year. However, the outlook from 2017 onwards is more positive, and this will support growth in the freight transport sector. Over the longer term, South Korea's export-oriented trade economic model is at risk from an aging population and slowing economic growth in key export partners such as China. Despite a host of economic headwinds, we hol......

    Published: 28-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 52
    BMI View: We have adjusted down our trade forecasts for the UK following the Brexit vote, in line with a downgrade of our expectations for the overall macro outlook. The main transmission mechanism within our five-year forecast period is the FX volatility and stalled economic activity as uncertainty persists. More pronounced or structural effects on trade of the actual disengagement of the UK from the European Union will be reflected in the next decade. Rail freight will ......
  • Kuwait Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 43
    BMI View: We anticipate steady growth across Kuwait's freight modes and main ports in 2016 as well as throughout the medium term. The country's economy faces challenges from sustained low oil prices but this has not discouraged the government from initiating major infrastructure projects to support business, trade and economic diversification. Our outlook is also based on the expectation that GDP rates will steadily improve throughout the course of the forecast period in ......
  • Saudi Arabia Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: The most prescient factor underpinning our growth forecasts for the freight sector and the wider economy is the current low oil price, which dominates government decision making. The low price has led to production being decreased, therefore we expect the Saudi economy will slow considerably throughout the short term at least. This will lead to certain infrastructure projects being shelved. However, growth in the rail freight sector is set to reach an impressive......
  • Argentina Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 51
    BMI View: The Argentine economy faces significant headwinds in 2016 with a minor recessionary outlook forecast for the year. Currency devaluation will boost competitiveness of the country's exports while increased cost of foreign goods will weigh in on demand. Nevertheless, we are hopeful that the dynamics across the freight modes will improve in the medium term as the economy begins its road to recovery. Furthermore, elevated spending will prevent growth prospects from t......
  • Australia Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: We expect to see steady, if particularly uninspiring, annual growth to be the main trend in 2016, with road freight pencilled in to lead the way in y-o-y growth terms (3.1%). Acting as something of a drag on growth across the freight modes will be China's weakening economy, while the unwinding investment boom in the mining sector will be further compounded by weakness in the housing market as of 2017. This being the case, along with our 2.2% forecast for GDP in ......
  • Guatemala Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 33
    BMI View: An uptick in domestic private consumption and the ongoing recovery in the US will boost freight volumes in Guatemala over the medium term. Long-term structural issues remain, however, and the country is heavily reliant on the export of low-value manufactured goods, and vulnerable to swings in commodity prices. The Guatemalan economy, and particularly its freight transport sector, remains tied to the US, one of its largest trading partners. We expect the st......
  • Iran Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 49
    BMI View: The removal of most of the sanctions previously imposed on Iran will be the biggest factor affecting trade in the country over the medium term as Iran's government looks to negotiate deals that benefit the economy and, by extension, the freight industry as a whole. Iran's economy will see a notable acceleration in growth in 2016 and beyond; however, because of huge infrastructure deficits and other major impediments such as corruption, it will be limited to arou......
  • Mozambique Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: Growth across all of the Mozambican freight modes will be relatively healthy in 2016, which offers welcome news amid the overall downturn in the domestic economy. While on the one hand we caution that the Mozambican government's decision not to honour a USD178mn interest repayment, due in late May, heralds several years of economic malaise over our medium-term outlook, increased Chinese investment in infrastructure projects should help maintain a steady rate of ......
