Acknowledgements

The Central American Commission of Maritime Transport (COCATRAM) is pleased to present to the Central American port marine community, the Port Statistical Summary, Year 2008, as a tool to support decision making and research for the subsector. This Statistical Summary briefly contains main aspects of Central American region port performance during year 2008. The main source of information for this report are the port companies of the region and authorities that compile national port statistics, through the members of the Network of Central American Port Statistics, that works since year 2000, coordinated by COCATRAM. This report presents information of forty ports of international service, operated by governmental and private companies, in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. The first part of the Summary presents in a general and commented way the information related to the cargo, ships and traffic of containers, in relation with ports, countries, total volume of foreign trade, type of handled cargo, type of ships and size of containers, amongst others. The second part of the report presents statistical tables with consolidated regional information. COCATRAM and Central American port sector has maintained their commitment to accomplish this activity, absolutely conscious of the great importance of it.

Cargo traffic by Country and Port

During 2008, Central American port traffic reached 94.6 million metric tons, representing, in absolute values, an increase of 0.4 million tons and 0.4% in terms of relative value, compared to 94.3 million tons during the previous period. Cargo traffic decreased in some of the Central American Common Market (CACM) countries, unlike others as in Panama with the greater absolute increase of 2.2 million tons, followed by Honduras and Costa Rica with absolute increases of 600.000 and 200.000 tons, respectively. In relation to the relative increase, Honduras reached the higher increase of the region (6.7%), followed by Panama (5%). Table 1 represents these numbers in detail. Ports on the Caribbean shore reported a 53.39% of the total, equivalent to 50.5 million tons and 46.61%, equivalent to 44.1 million, in those of the Pacific coast. During the two previous years, total cargo share was 53.8% and 46.2% in 2006 and 51.4% and 48.6% in 2007, showing a consecutive increase during the three last years in the movement of the ports of the Pacific coast. As Figure 1 shows, Panama maintains 49.7% of the total of the cargo handled in the ports of Central America and the remaining numbers doesn’t differ either significantly with the corresponding previous periods.

Central American Port Statistical Summary, Year 2008 3.

Cargo traffic by Seashore (Atlantic-Pacific)

Of the total volume of cargo, 53.3% was handled in ports on the Caribbean coast and 46.6% in ports of the Pacific coast. These numbers show an opposed tendency compared to the last year’s figures, since the relation in 2007 went from 51 to 49 and previous values went from 54 to 46. Discharged cargo in Caribbean ports represented 45.1% compared to 65.3% loaded. In this period, as in the previous one, two Panamanian ports strongly influenced this balance; Chiriqui Grande and Colon Container Terminal which had higher volumes of loaded cargo, in amounts that managed to neutralize the imbalance that in opposite sense presented mainly Caldera, Puerto Cortés, Granelera Terminal and Petrolera Terminal, amongst others. CACM multipurpose ports of the Caribbean coast present a sound balance between their discharged and loaded cargo, with exception of Puerto Cortés, due to the discharged of fuels and bulks, which in other countries is done through Pacific ports.

Central American Port Statistical Summary, Year 2008 In general, the relation between discharged and loaded cargo in the Pacific coast went from 2.5 to 1 in the last period and from 2.2 to 1 in the present period. This relation in the CACM was set aside 3 to 1. Likewise, in this coast, 77.7% of the total cargo was discharged and 22.3% loaded. The difference between discharged and loaded cargo volumes on the Pacific coast ports is, mainly, due to cargo unloading of heavy goods products, like solid bulks and oil which accounts for an important volume of the traffic . The performance of Panamanian ports is a little different, although they are not totally out of this pattern. Of the 55.8 million tons discharged in the period, Caribbean coast accounted for 45.1% and 54.9% for the Pacific. Similarly, of the 38.7 million tons loaded, Caribbean coast accounted for 65.3% and 34.7% for the Pacific. This distribution remained with no significant change during this period. It turns out interesting to stand out that practically all growth in cargo handled in the previous year, was on the Caribbean coast, which, subsequently, achieved a growth of 4.6% in discharged cargo and 4.1% in loaded cargo.

4.

Cargo traffic (quarterly)

In terms of quarterly variations, the highest difference was 1,502,986 metric tons and the 2nd quarter reached the highest activity. The lowest volumes of discharged and loaded cargo were reported on the 1st and 4th quarters respectively. During the present period, there is no variation of the trend in the quarterly differences, which had being gradually diminished over the previous periods. As it is shown in figure 4, the quarterly variation curve is strongly influenced by the structure of the Panama curve. The curve corresponding to Central American Common Market ports has a more balanced performance, with a maximum variation of 8.1% between 1st and 2nd (of greater volume). The outcomes shown include the total of the activity, with the consequent compensations between ports and between countries, having all of them, their own variation patterns.

Traffic by cargo type

In general, traffic by cargo type handled in Central American ports had continuously kept the trend over the last decade. Particularly, regarding previous period, Central American Ports showed a decreased of general cargo and liquid bulks traffic, like previous year, thus like solid bulks and RO-RO cargo. Containers, that have increased last year, returned to round up its participation in 6%. Figure 7 shows a breakdown on cargo type traffic. In absolute values, all cargo traffic categories decreased, with exception of the containerized cargo that registered an increase of 11.3%.

Containerized cargo reached 40.5% (22.6 million tons), of which, 50.5% went through the Pacific coast. Solid bulks represent 15% of total discharged cargo, 8.3 million, of which 78% was discharged on Pacific coast ports. Regarding loaded cargo, container cargo represents 69.9% (27.1 million tons), of which 70% was loaded on the Caribbean coast ports, followed by liquid bulks that represent 20.6% (8.1 million tons), of which 73.6% are from Panamanian ports which are committed to inter oceanic transfer and of product loading from fuel free zone. Solid bulks represent 3.4 (1.3 million tons).

Cargo handled in CACM ports

Central American Common Market (CACM) ports handled 47.6 million metric tons, with a decrease of 3.7% (1.8 million less than the previous period). The CACM handled volume accounts for 50.3% of the total of the region with 65% of the volume discharged and the remaining 35% was loaded. Ports on the Caribbean coast accounts for 55.6% of the traffic and those of the Pacific coast accounts for 44.4%. Cargo distribution among CACM countries displays very slight variations. More than one third of this amount was handled in the Guatemalan ports, more than one fourth in Costa Rica and one fifth in Honduras. Figure 11 shows this breakdown.

Cargo passing through Ports of CACM countries on the Caribbean coast represented 55.6% of the total. The discharged volume in the Pacific coast was 53.1% while 46.1% was serviced on the Caribbean coast. Meanwhile, cargo loaded in the Caribbean coast accounts for 71.8% and the remaining 28.2% was loaded in the Pacific. In the percentage distribution of cargo type, slight changes were reported compared with the previous period. Liquid bulk cargo lost three points of participation, followed by solid bulk cargo that lost two points and RO- RO lost one point of participation compared to containerized cargo, which continues its increasing trend, as it has happened throughout the present decade. Figure 12 shows the distribution in 2008. Figure 13 shows discharging and loading of cargo by coast. Pacific coast ports kept significant differences between loaded and discharged volumes, 22.3% and 77.7% respectively, while those on the Caribbean coast sustain a slight difference (45.3% and 54.7%), keeping the same trend of previous periods.
