BMI View: Steady if unspectacular growth is expected this year across Canada's freight transport sectors
with rail outpacing air, road and inland waterway freight transports. Road will remain the dominant mode
in terms of tonnage carried as it continues to serve dom ..."
BMI View: We anticipate Canada's freight modes and shipping industry to grow in 2016 with road freight
outpacing other modes while the country's largest container port, Port Metro Vancouver, will achieve the
biggest increase in containers handled. Canada's strong ties ..."
BMI View: Road freight will once again lead the way in terms of y-o-y growth in the Canadian freight mix
in 2016, a scenario we envisage to remain the same over our medium-term forecast period. Canada will
once more trade primarily with the US and signs of economic re ..."
BMI View: We anticipate growth across all three freight sectors in Canada, with the rail sector achieving
the highest levels of growth of 3.3% in 2016. This trend falls in line with signs of a general economic
recovery in the country and growth in all key trade indica ..."
BMI View: We take a broadly positive view for the freight industry's outlook over the next five years,
particularly road freight, for a number of reasons. Firstly, lower oil prices will reduce costs; and secondly,
although the decline in prices is curtailing exports, ..."
BMI View: We envisage fairly muted growth for Canadian freight in 2015 as lower oil prices are expected
to curtail export growth over the coming 12 months. However, manufactured goods exports will
increasingly pick up the slack, ensuring a secular decline of the current account ..."
BMI maintains its positive outlook for Canada's freight transport sector for 2015. The country benefits from
a strong commodities mix, as well as growing private consumption levels. In recent months, the country has
benefitted from freight volumes being diverted away ..."
BMI View: We expect an improvement in Canadian real GDP growth in 2014 and 2015, with expansion of
2.1% and 2.3% in those years, respectively (up from 1.7% in both 2012 and 2013). However, our forecasts
are below consensus, and we expect domestic demand to come under ..."
Canada's freight transport industry is to undergo mixed fortunes during 2014, with the maritime sector set to
witness the strongest year-on-year (y-o-y) growth by mode - the Port of Vancouver is projected to see
annual tonnage throughput growth of 6.0% in 2014, while ..."
Canada's freight transport sector will see a slight uptick in growth in Q114, in line with the country's
economic growth. BMI forecasts that Canada's economy will expand by 2.4% in 2014. BMI cautions that
household consumption growth will remain weak in 2014, growing ..."
