Market Report, "Australia Freight Transport Report Q4 2014", Published

LogoThe Australian economy grew by 1.1% quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) after seasonal adjustments in Q114, reaccelerating from a pace of 0.8% recorded in Q413. Strong export growth was further accentuated by a contraction in imports, which saw the goods and services balance move into the black in Q114 for the first time in nine quarters. Given that latest data from the Chinese customs authorities for April showing another surge in iron ore imports (which are primarily from Australia) to 24.2% year-on-year (y-o-y), we have upgraded our real GDP growth forecast to 2.3% to account for the stronger export performance.

New Market Study, "Global Third Party Logistics (3PL) Market 2014-2018", Has Been Published

Logo3PL is the outsourcing of logistics and distribution activities by companies to logistics solution providers known as 3PL providers. A 3PL provider is a company to which shippers (customers that transport goods using 3PL services) outsource a part or all the supply chain management (SCM) functions of their logistics services. A 3PL provider plays a significant part in handling customer logistics requirements and performs transportation, location tracking, and sometimes product consolidation activities. Thus, 3PL providers typically specialize in transportation, warehousing, and integrated operation services, which 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 the packaging of products. They also provide strategic and operational value to many shippers worldwide. Currently, 3PL improves logistics effectiveness by introducing new and innovative ways to manage the SCM.

Market Report, "Egypt Freight Transport Report Q4 2014", Published

LogoPolitical uncertainty will continue to affect the Egyptian economy in 2014 as the country continues through its rocky transitional period towards democracy. However, the election of former Field Marshall Sisi to the presidency following elections at the end of May 2014 will serve to reduce political risk and will introduce a measure of stability not seen since the ouster of President Mubarak in 2011. Sisi's election will provide a veneer of political legitimacy, thereby releasing US aid flows, and should help the economy get back on track. A recovering economy will be felt in the country's ports and airports and on its freight services, as consumer demand and investment into infrastructure picks up, thereby boosting container and dry and liquid bulk freight services.
