BMI View: Freight volumes carried across all modes will expand in 2016 and there will be an increase in

throughput for US's main ports. Healthy domestic demand is supporting freight transports while increased

opportunities are presented from the Panama Canal expansion and an agreement reached to remove limits

on the number of flights between the US and Mexico. Real growth in trade will be positive but lower

commodities prices will translate to a decrease in the total value of trade this year. We expect that higher

prices in 2017 will drive a recovery in both imports and exports value, which will be sustained over the

medium term.

Key Updates And Forecasts

? Trucking companies might have to hire more operators to maintain their business scope if the proposal

from US regulators to impose speed limiters to trucks comes into force. Lowering the distance a truck can

travel within a day decreases the capacity of existing fleets and can have a negative impact on the

profitability and consequently operations of road transportation companies.

? The US and Mexico reached an agreement to remove limitations on the number of flights between them

to the benefit of air freight volumes as several airlines already added and have planned new services.

? Completion of the Panama Canal expansion has positively influenced shipping activity in the US.

Liquefied natural gas shipments have started from the US lower states to China through the canal while

Mediterranean Shipping Co. initiated a new freight service from Peru and Chile to Philadelphia using

new Panamax ships which could not previously use the route.

    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 ......

    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......

    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......

    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......

    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......

    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 ......

Ongoing and future infrastructure improvement projects in air, rail, road and the country's largest port Dar es Salaam will accommodate the anticipated growth, with foreign investment playing an important role in funding several projects. Enhanced trade relations and ......
