    Philippine port developer International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI) posted a revenue from port operations of USD 1.244 billion for the year ended December 31, 2017.

    The results are 10 percent higher compared to USD 1.128 billion reported in 2016.

    Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) were also 10 pct higher year-on-year standing at USD 578 million.

    Net income attributable to equity holders for the full-year was USD 182.1 million, up one percent from the previous year.

    ICTSI said the increase in net income was mainly due to the continuing ramp-up at its new terminal in Matadi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), strong operating results from the terminals in Iraq, Mexico, Honduras, Madagascar, China, Poland and Brazil, along with the gain related to the termination of the sub-concession agreement in Lagos, Nigeria.

    The port operator’s handled consolidated volume came at 9.15 million TEUs in 2017, five percent more than in 2016.

    “The increase in volume was primarily due to continuing improvement in global trade activities particularly in the emerging markets, continuing ramp-up at ICTSI’s operations in Basra, Iraq, new services at Manzanillo, Mexico and contribution of new terminals in Matadi, DRC and Melbourne, Australia. Excluding the new terminals, the consolidated volume would have increased by four percent,” the group said.

    For 2018, the group has earmarked USD 380 million for capital expenditure, which will mainly be allocated for the capacity expansion in its terminal operations in Manila, Mexico and Iraq.

    In addition, ICTSI capital will be directed to the rehabilitation and development of its container terminal in Honduras, procurement of additional equipment and minor infrastructure works in its newly acquired terminal operations in Papua New Guinea, and the completion of its new barge terminal project in Cavite City, Philippines.

    The Ethiopia government has become a shareholder of the Port of Berbera after it signed an agreement with DP World and the Somaliland Port Authority recently in Dubai.

    According to the agreement, DP World will hold 51 percent stake in the Port of Berbera. Similarly, Somaliland and Ethiopia will hold 30 percent and 19 percent stakes, respectively.

    The government of Ethiopia will also invest in infrastructure to develop the Berbera Corridor as a trade gateway for the inland country, which is one of the fastest growing countries in the world.

    There are plans to construct an additional berth at the Port of Berbera in line with the Berbera master plan, which DP World has already started implementing, while adding new equipment to further improve efficiencies and productivity. The first crane is scheduled to arrive later this year.

    Expressing the importance of working with the governments of Somaliland and Ethiopia on the projects, which will fuel trade and employment opportunities in the region, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World said: “I am excited about the prospects of working with the Ethiopian government. Ethiopia is home to approximately 110 million people. The ports of Berbera and Doraleh will provide significant capacity to the region. Both these ports and more capacity will be needed to serve the region’s growth potential in the future.”

    “Having the government of Ethiopia as a partner will enable DP World to support them in achieving its impressive development plans. This development will further strengthen of our partnership, and demonstrates our commitment to the people of Somaliland and Ethiopia, and we look forward to working together,” said Bin Sulayem.

    ”The economies of the region are growing at a pace that needs the development of Berbera supplementing Djibouti and additional gateways in the future,” said Bin Sulayem.

    Dr. Saad Al Shire, minister of foreign affairs and international co-operation of Somaliland said: “This is an important project, which address some of the problems faced by Somaliland related to employment and investment. It’s a welcome development that will benefit the region as a whole. The economies of the region are growing at a pace that necessitates development of multiple ports and outlets. The extension of the port will increase capacity of the region to accommodate the increase in trade.”

    Ahmed Shide, transport minister of Ethiopian said: “After a year of serious negotiations, Ethiopia has concluded an agreement with the Somaliland Ports Authority and DP World that will give the government of Ethiopia 19 percent stake in the joint venture developing the Port of Berbera. The agreement will help Ethiopia secure an additional logistical gateway for its ever increasing import and export trade driven by its growing population and economy. In addition, Ethiopian participation in the development of port of Berbera and the Berbera Corridor will help bring increased economic development and opportunity to the people of Somaliland. Ethiopia will continue to further invest in and develop the Djibouti corridor and further consolidate the use of existing ports in Djibouti. It will also look for other opportunities to develop additional ports and logistics corridors in the region.”

    Qatar Airways Cargo has begun offering pharma container firm CSafe’s newest RAP container.

    The active RAP unit caters for large volume pharma shipments and has been approved by the cargo carrier for use across its pharma network.  

    The CSafe RAP utilises heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies together with insulation to eliminate the payload risks associated with extreme ambient temperature conditions and long-duration shipments.

    The unit is able to maintain constant payload temperatures even at extreme ambient temperatures from -30°C to +54°C and a max payload volume of 6.68m3, thereby easily accommodating up to four standard US-pallets or five standard Euro-pallets.

    It is the only Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency approved active compressor-driven container permitted in both the upper deck and lower deck cargo sections of commercial aircraft.

    Preliminary traffic figures for January 2018 from the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) show that international air cargo markets enjoyed a strong start to the year.

    Global trade activity “remained robust at the start of 2018”, said the AAPA, with firm demand for consumer, intermediate and investment goods across major economies lending support to air cargo markets.

    It continued in a statement: “Accordingly, international air cargo demand in freight tonne kilometre (FTK) terms recorded a 9.4% year-on-year growth in January.

    “After accounting for a 5.4% expansion in offered freight capacity, the average international freight load factor of 60.8% was 2.2 percentage points higher than the same month last year.

    Commenting on the results, Mr. Andrew Herdman, AAPA Director General said, "The year has started on a positive note, with growth in both passenger and cargo sectors."

    "Overall, international air passenger demand remains encouraging, having registered continued growth in numbers, with the widespread availability of affordable air fares and increasing network connections providing more options for travelers.

    “Meanwhile, the on-going strength in the global economy has continued to benefit the air cargo business for Asian carriers, particularly as major manufacturing hubs are located in the region."

    Looking ahead, Herdman concluded: "Growth prospects look positive, with elevated levels of business and consumer confidence boosting aviation markets in the coming months.

    “Whilst Asian airlines face persistently challenging market conditions due to stiff competition and rising costs, carriers continue to strive for further improvements through the launch of new routes and continued investment in new levels of passenger comfort."
