CENTRAL AMERICAN PORTS STATISTICAL SUMMARY, YEAR 2018

Acknowledgements The Central American Maritime Transport Commission (COCATRAM) is pleased to present the 2018 Summary of Maritime Port Statistics to the maritime port community of the Central American Isthmus, to be used as a decision-making and research tool in the subsector. COCATRAM has arranged this Statistical summary in two parts; the first one is comprised of three sections, specifically Cargo, Vessels and Containers, which briefly approach key aspects of port performance in the Central American region during 2018. The second part features appendixes containing statistical tables that strengthen information at the regional level. The information contained in this document comes from forty-eight international service ports operated by both state-owned and private companies in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. The three sections that comprise the first part of the Statistical Summary feature general information and comments on cargo, vessels and container traffic by port and country, including total volume of foreign trade, cargo-type handling, vessel type, and size of containers, among others. The main source of information of this summary is based on official information provided by port authorities and operators in the Central American region in charge of gathering national port statistics through the members of the Central American Maritime Ports Statistics Network (REMARPOR in Spanish), in place since year 2000, and which is coordinated by COCATRAM. Data about regional foreign trade were obtained from official websites of each country's entity in charge of this area. In the case of Nicaragua, the information was from the Central American Statistical Information System. Similarly, cruise ship traffic information in Honduras was obtained with the support of the General Directorate of the Merchant Marine of Honduras, to whom we do express our warmest thanks. The information contained in this report is updated to November 2019, and it covers calendar year 2018. However, it is subject to future updates to be made as information from official sources of member countries is provided. More details on port throughput statistics can be found in the Central American Maritime Port Statistical Information System (SIEMPCA) at: http://www.cocatram.org.ni/estadisticas/ COCATRAM, together with the port authorities and terminal operators in the Central American Isthmus have reaffirmed their commitment to prepare this document fully aware of the great importance it has. Should you have any comment regarding the information herein contained, please contact COCATRAM Statistical Unit at: mocampo@cocatram.org.ni.

CENTRAL AMERICAN PORTS STATISTICAL SUMMARY, YEAR 2018

1. Cargo throughput 1.1 Cargo handled by country and port In 2018, Central American ports handled a total of 149,924.8 thousand metric tons (MT), reporting a 1.2 percent decrease when compared with cargo volumes handled in 2017. Of the total cargo handled during this period, 59 percent accounted for offloaded cargo, while loaded cargo totaled 41 percent. Both types of cargo showed a decrease when compared with the previous year's figures. Table 1 shows cargo volumes handed in each country, and the percentage of representation at the regional level, and variance recorded when compared with 2017 figures. In this regard, it can be observed that as opposed to last year, in which the Central American countries, except for El Salvador, reported an increase [in cargo volumes handed], this year El Salvador showed a 1 percent increase in cargo volumes handled, and the same happened to Costa Rica that reported a 4.7 percent increase, including Honduras which reported a slight increase. On the contrary, Nicaragua, Panamรก and Guatemala reported a decrease in cargo handled. In that very same order these percentages were 5 percent, 3 percent and 1 percent respectively.

During 2018, it handled 26,960.3 thousand MT, which translated into a 1 percent decrease when compared with last year's figures. This decrease was evidenced in vessels that reported 11 percent drop, while offloaded cargo reported a 6 percent increase. Offloaded cargo totaled 62 percent, and ports in the Pacific coast handled 43 percent of this type of cargo, while 19 percent were handled through the Caribbean coast ports. Loaded cargo accounted for 38 percent of the cargo handled. In this case, ports in the Caribbean coast handled most of it, specifically 26 percent, while ports in the Pacific coast handled 12 percent of the cargo. Chart 2 below shows cargo volumes handled according to port, including both loaded and offloaded cargo during the 2017 – 2018 period.

TEU: Normalized unit based on a 20-foot long ISO container (6.10 meters) that is used as a statistical measure of traffic flows or capacities. A normalized 40-foot Series 1 ISO container is equivalent to 2 TEU. Mobile boxes less than 20 feet correspond to 0.75 TEU, those longer than 20 but shorter than 40 feet are 1.5 TEU, and those longer than 40 feet are 2.25 TEU. Transit: Goods onboard, which upon their arrival at a certain port are to be offloaded at port, loaded in another transportation mode and ending outside the country borders. Transshipping: Comprises the transfer of offloaded containers and box/trailers from a ship and then loaded on a different vessel. However, in those places where geography or infrastructure allow it, this operation can be complemented by another overland transport mode (e.g. railroad) that will move the cargo to another port that is sometimes a long distance from the first, in order to be shipped further.
