China Trade Trends

China’s export growth slowed in July as demand from the US and EU faltered.

Analysts had predicted further gains in the lead up to the ocean shipping peak season but instead export growth in US dollar terms fell to 7.2% year-on-year last month after rising 11.3% in June.

Japanese investment bank Nomura said the result had disappointed expectations – Nomura had a predicted a 10.5% year-on-year surge in July exports and the consensus among analysts was for an 11% year-on-year increase.

The analyst said growth was “mainly weighed on by exports to the US and EU which fell sharply by 10.9 percentage points and 5.0 percentage points, respectively, to 8.9% y-o-y and 10.1% in July”.

Export growth to Japan and some Asian economies improved slightly but Nomura predicted that trade tensions between the US and China “may escalate due to geopolitical issues, putting pressure on China’s export growth in the short term”.

By product type, export growth in mechanical & electrical product, hi-tech product and automatic data process machines dropped significantly in July. “Notably, these products are mostly intellectual property-related and may be vulnerable if the Trump administration decides to impose tighter trade sanctions on China – although we do not expect any imminent action,” added Nomura.

The analyst concluded that trade growth may have peaked in Q2 and could now slow in the second of the year as “potential trade frictions between China and the US, rising geopolitical risks and appreciation of RMB against USD in H1 are likely to weigh on the near-term export outlook”.

Hanjin Shipping Line News

CREDITORS of Hanjin Shipping, which went bankrupt last year, stand little chance of recovering any of their money, with debts massively outweighing assets.

Court papers filed with the US Bankruptcy Court District of New Jersey show that claims filed by creditors total about $10.5bn.

However, the debtor’s estate has recovered only around $220m since Hanjin collapsed at the end of last August.

Jim Han Kim, lawyer appointed bankruptcy trustee of Hanjin Shipping, set out the figures in a declaration to the US court and said it was uncertain when initial distributions would be made to those creditors holding admitted claims.

Hanjin Shipping was a top 10 container line at the time that it went under after months of negotiations with key creditors, such as shipowners with vessels on charter to the carrier.

Its demise appeared to give fresh impetus to consolidation efforts, with the three Japanese shipping groups agreeing to merge their container businesses a few weeks later, and then Maersk announcing plans to buy Hamburg Süd while Cosco Shipping is in the process of taking over OOCL.

Grimaldi Lines New Acquisition

During a short ceremony held at the Chinese shipyards of Jinling in Nanjing, the Pure Car & Truck Carrier Grande Baltimora was delivered to the Grimaldi Group. First of a series of three sister units ordered by the Neapolitan group, the Grande Baltimora has a length of 199 metres, a beam of 32 metres, a gross tonnage of 63,000 tonnes and a service speed of 19 knots.
The new Italian-flag unit can transport 6700 CEU (Car Equivalent Unit) or, in alternative, 4000 linear metres of rolling units and 2500 CEU. She is fitted with four hoistable decks which make her a very flexible vessel, able to load any type of rolling freight such as trucks, tractors, busses, excavators, etc., up to 5.2m high. Moreover, the vessel is fitted with a side ramp and a quarter stern ramp, the latter allowing the loading of freight units with a weight of up to 150 tonnes.
The Grande Baltimora is a highly performing ship from an environmental point of view. She is, in fact, fitted with an electronically-controlled main engine, allowing her to meet the new regulations for the reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions, and with a hybrid exhaust gas cleaning system for the abatement of sulphur oxide emissions. Moreover, she is equipped with a ballast water treatment unit which will allow her to meet the future international regulations.
“The Grande Baltimora is another demonstration of the commitment of our Group to strengthen further our services between the Mediterranean and North America with the deployment of even more modern, flexible and environmentally friendly vessels”, declared the Group’s managing director Emanuele Grimaldi. “This new unit is named after the US port where we have been present for the last 50 years with regular services to Europe”, concluded Emanuele Grimaldi.
The Grande Baltimora will be deployed on the weekly ro/ro service operated by the Group between the Mediterranean and North America. The ports served by the maritime link are: Gemlik (Turkey), Gioia Tauro, Civitavecchia, Savona, Halifax, New York, Baltimore, Veracruz and Antwerp.
