New Market Research Report: Transportation in Denmark

LogoTotal calculated current value growth of 4% in 2013 was better than 2012's transportation performance but weaker compared with the growth rates of 8% in 2010 and 2011. Yet, the 4% growth rate in 2013 showed that transportation in Denmark has overcome the crisis of 2009. In value sales terms, the category has fully recovered, and sales have even exceeded the total value sales of 2008, pre-crisis. Growth in domestic tourism and inbound tourism pushed demand for means of transportation up and the category increased in 2013. The inbound tourism growth rate was limited by the German market declining in its number of trips. However, this had almost no impact on transportation since many German tourists come to Denmark with their private vehicles and thus do not purchase transportation services during their trip.

Now Available: Transportation in Ecuador

LogoThe biggest story in Ecuador in 2013 with regards to transportation was the opening of the new Mariscal Sucre International Airport approximately 18 kilometres east of Quito to replace the capital's old airport, also named after Mariscal Sucre. The new airport has the increased infrastructure needed to handle larger, long-distance aircraft, unlike the old airport which was limited by its location in a residential neighbourhood. In the initial months after the airport opened in February 2013, the municipal government offered subsidies covering thirty percent of airport usage fees for routes connecting Quito to new destinations and twenty percent for increased flight frequencies. The airport itself added to these subsidies, offering subsidies of forty percent on fuel costs for new flights between Quito and certain destinations including Brazil and Mexico. These subsidies helped offset an increase in airport usage fees estimated to be between 40 and 100% depending on the airline and flight between the old airport and the new one.

Now Available: Japan Shipping Report Q3 2014

LogoIn the case of Japan, a slightly different but similarly extreme, monetary experiment was responsible for the mini-economic boom seen over the past 12 months, but we are seeing increasing signs that this is fading fast. Real wages are collapsing, and consumer confidence is naturally being negatively impacted. While consensus expectations are for the impact of the sales tax hike to prove fleeting, we believe that the recent decline in activity is a warning sign of what is to come as people fear the sustainability of the current fiscal trajectory. Our recently-revised real GDP growth forecast of 0.9% seems well placed relative to consensus expectations of 1.4%.

Report Published: "Third Party Logistics (3PL) Market in the US 2014-2018 "

LogoThird-party logistics, also known as 3PL, refers to companies outsourcing logistics and distribution to logistics solution providers called 3PL providers. A 3PL provider is a company to which shippers (customers who transport goods using 3PL services) outsource a part or all the SCM functions of their logistics services. A 3PL provider plays a significant part in handling customer logistics requirements and undertakes transportation, location tracking, and sometimes product consolidation activities. Thus, a 3PL provider typically specializes in transportation, warehousing, and integrated operation services that they customize according to their customers' needs. Often, 3PL providers go beyond logistics and provide value-added services such as inventory management, cross-docking, door-to-door delivery, and packaging of products. They also provide strategic and operational value to many shippers across the globe. 3PL improves the effectiveness of logistics by using new and innovative ways to manage SCM.

Report Published: "Israel Freight Transport Report Q3 2014"

LogoWe forecast fairly modest growth in Israel's freight transport sector in 2014, though this will be an improvement for air and rail freight volumes, both of which have suffered declines in recent years. The major port of Ashdod also suffered a fall in volume handling in 2013. Political risk from the civil war in Syria and escalating sectarian tensions in Lebanon could all weigh on the Israeli economy and its freight transport sector (though this also presents transit opportunities). However, with the eurozone set to return to growth following two years of economic contraction, Israel could see a boost in its export volumes. The country is looking towards the future, and is committed to developing its ports, though this brings with it strike risk from workers disgruntled at the planned privatisation of key facilities.

New Report Available: India Freight Transport Report Q3 2014

LogoIndia's state-run major ports continue to be the underperformers in the BRIC country's freight transport infrastructure, with volumes at many facilities struggling to grow. Ports have also been harmed by a ban on iron ore mining, and a fall in exports to Europe. A case in point is the Jawaharlal Nehru Port, India's largest in terms of containers handled, which has seen a decrease in its box throughput as it continues to chase the elusive fourth terminal. We see strong growth potential in the air freight sector, however, as air freight and logistics companies look to capitalise on India's growing pharmaceuticals export market, though national carrier Air India will struggle to take on this mantle given its financial constraints. The opening up of the air sector to foreign players could provide a boost to the market.

New Market Research Report: Singapore Freight Transport Report Q3 2014

LogoSingapore's role as a global transhipment hub is both its blessing and its curse. In times such as these, when key markets in Europe and the US are either recessionary or growing sluggishly, it can be hit by depleted freight volumes. In 2014, we forecast growth in both port and airport total tonnage volumes, albeit it will be sluggish. Both facilities are investing considerably, and we are confident of growth over the medium and long term.
