US container imports plunged by 20% in the first two months of this year.

On March 9, a report released by Descartes Systems Group showed that the import volume of US seaborne containers fell by 20% in the first two months of this year. In January and February of this year, the total number of containers entering the United States in 20-foot equivalent units was 3.8 million, down from 4.78 million in the same period in 2022, and basically equal to the level in the same period in 2019. The global container rate of 40 feet has returned to the level before the pandemic. This is mainly because most central banks around the world actively raise interest rates to cope with inflation, curb consumer spending, and thus reduce international trade. Some media commented that the economic burden of soaring inflation and rising interest rates in the United States mainly falls on low-income consumers. Given that consumption accounts for 68.5% of US GDP, the disturbing slowdown in the container shipping industry shows that the US economy is showing signs of faltering. Descartes said that container throughput from China, Japan and Germany dropped the most. The market believes that the decline of container imports in the United States is an ominous sign, because some strategists believe that the economic recession may start in the second half of this year. In addition, the interest rate hike that began last year has just begun to play a role in the US economy and will strongly curb economic activity in the coming months. The sharp decline in US container imports did not begin this year. According to Descartes, the number of containers in the United States in December last year decreased by 19.3% compared with December 2021, and only 1.3% more than December 2019. In 2020, the epidemic spread and urban blockade led to a sharp decline in global trade.

What impact will Turkey's earthquake have on global trade?

It is reported that on February 6, two 7.8 magnitude earthquakes hit southeastern Turkey, affecting at least 10 provinces in Turkey. The death toll in Turkey rose to 12,873 and another 62,937 people were injured. More than 6,000 buildings collapsed. The powerful quake affected a number of ports in the country, severely damaging Limak Port Iskenderun, a major port in the Mediterranean coastal city of Iskenderun in southern Turkey, forcing authorities to suspend port activities, according to Turkey's maritime authority and local media. As a result, part of the port of Iskenderun was damaged, and the number of ships arriving, departing, in and berthing at the port decreased significantly. Turkey straddles the Eurasian continent, connects the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, and is an important transit place and transportation hub for Europe, Asia and Africa, among which the Turkish Strait is the only channel connecting the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Iskenderun Port is a Mediterranean port in Turkey. It is located in Hatay Province, Turkey. It is the second largest port in southeast Turkey. 72 hours after the quake, shipping routes in Turkey and its surrounding areas, including the Black Sea to the north and the Mediterranean to the south, have not been significantly affected. However, in the longer term, global shipping will be involved in the whole body, many ships outside the port of Iskenderun "shut down", will bring more uncertainty to the normal navigation of the Turkish Strait, or will affect the price trend of commodities and the stable operation of the international industrial chain and supply chain, will have a certain impact on international trade. For China, Turkey is an important part of the Belt and Road Initiative and an important trading partner of China. Data shows that China is one of Turkey's top five trading partners. According to the latest data from the General Administration of Customs, the total import and export trade between China and Turkey in the first three quarters of 2022 reached 190.3 billion yuan. Globally, Turkey is an export-oriented economy. According to public data, Turkey ranks first in the world in the reserves of boron, chromium and other elements, which are important resources for industrial development. At the same time, Turkey is the seventh-largest plastic producer in the world and the second-largest plastic producer in Europe. The chemical industry is a major part of Turkey's industrial system. In addition, Turkey is the world's sixth-largest exporter of textiles and eighth-largest exporter of ready-made garments. After the earthquake, the import and export of textile industry chain and chemical industry chain may be affected.

A large number of empty containers are piled up in Chinese ports.

Previously, Container xChange, a container leasing and trading platform, reported that there were too many empty containers to fit, and there was not enough warehouse space to accommodate all containers. It is reported that at the end of the year when the shipping season was "very quiet", a large number of empty containers were piled up in Chinese ports. Alice Tang, a Sino-European land transport planner at ITS Cargo, said that the serious shortage of equipment caused by the cargo boom caused by the epidemic last year had been completely reversed. "A large number of empty containers are piling up in Guangzhou, Yantian, Shekou and other ports." "Some people say that the containers have been stacked on the road, while others say that 90% of the container space has been occupied. In the past, trailer drivers usually transported the loaded containers to the dock and picked up empty containers for the next order of goods. Now, most drivers no longer pick up empty containers because there is no next order of goods to pull." "Last year, the freight forwarders lined up all night to grab an empty container and joked that the container might be worth more than gold of the same weight." Alice Tang said that compared with 2021, the fourth quarter was "very quiet" and the freight rate was also very low. According to Linerlytica's data, the freight rate from the Far East to Europe, the Middle East and Africa continued to show a downward spiral trend, and saw the largest drop last week, because "the freight volume of all trade routes is very weak". The analyst added: "Shipping companies are pushing for a new round of general price increase in December, but they are unlikely to succeed if they do not eliminate the excess capacity. The contract freight in 2023 seems certain to decline by 80% because they reflect the decline in spot freight." "But now they can't sell all the goods because consumers have reduced their spending on shopping this year. Even in the first quarter of next year, the situation may not be good."

The shipping industry faces a new problem: container surplus

With the economic recovery of countries after the COVID-19 epidemic, there was once a shortage of shipping containers in the world. Now not only that situation no longer exists, but even the shipping industry is facing an diametrically opposite problem: there are too many empty containers! In addition to the decrease in freight, the data shows that the container warehouse is now full of empty containers. This is another proof of the decline in global consumer demand and the economic slowdown. Traders and shippers pointed out that this is not a sign that the global economy is recovering, but a sign that consumer demand is declining. "There is not enough warehouse space to accommodate all containers," Christian Roelofs, CEO of Container xChange, an online container logistics platform, said this week. He also warned that container warehouses would face greater storage pressure in the coming months. Drewry said in its latest analysis that 14% of the voyages on major container routes were cancelled from the end of November to the beginning of December. Last week, Maersk, a shipping giant, warned in its third quarter performance report that freight rates had peaked against the backdrop of easing supply chain difficulties and declining demand. The company told investors that it expected marine profits to decline. Container xChange interviewed 200 freight forwarders, traders and shippers in a survey last month. Nearly 60% of them said that they were coping with geopolitical, economic and political risks, which brought downward pressure on consumption, leading to a decline in container demand.

The congestion of major ports around the world is gradually eased

The delays at the world's major ports are not as serious as before. Compared with the beginning of 2022, the main ports in four regions are less affected by the delay at present. However, the arrival time of ships is still higher than the level before the outbreak in 2019. Sea Intelligence investigated the arrival of ships at the 6 largest ports in each of the five most important container transport regions (Asia, North America's east and west coasts, Northern Europe and the Mediterranean). The analysis company said that among the largest ports in Asia, the west coast of North America, Northern Europe and the Mediterranean, the average delay time of late arrival ships reached the peak in early 2022, and has been declining since then. The only exception is on the east coast of North America, where port delays have become worse, possibly because port pressure and congestion have shifted from the west coast to the east coast. In general, delays at major ports in four of the five regions peaked at the beginning of 2022. Since then, the reliability of shipping schedule has improved, but it has not reached the pre epidemic level. According to the data of Sea Intelligence, compared with ports in Europe and Asia, the average delay time of ports in North America is the longest. In general, there are significant differences between regions. Sea Intelligence has generally concluded that, although it is still higher than the average level before the epidemic, the severity of delay (except for the East Coast of North America) will be reduced in 2022.
