Central American port statistical s ummary Year 2010

Foreword The Central American Maritime Transport Commission (COCATRAM) is pleased to present to the maritime port community of the Central American isthmus this Summary of Maritime Port Statistics for 2010 as a tool for support in decision-making and research in the subsector. This Statistical Summary is structured in two parts, the first with three sections: Cargo, Vessels, and Containers that briefly take up the main aspects of port performance in the Central American region in 2010. The second part contains the annexes with statistical tables that consolidate the regional information. The main sources of information are the Port Companies and Authorities of the region that compile national port statistics through the members of the Central American Network of Maritime Port Statistics that has functioned since 2000, coordinated by COCATRAM. Information is presented from the 40 ports for international service operated by State and private companies in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. The three sections making up the first part of the Summary present in a general and commented manner the information related to cargo, vessels, and container traffic in relation to the ports, countries, total volume of foreign trade, type of handling, origin and destination of the cargo by port and geographic region, type of vessel, and container size, among others. For the second straight year, this issue includes the Origin and Destination of the cargo, as well as a glossary of terms used that are related to the Statistical Summary, offering the users other elements for consideration in decision-making. COCATRAM, together with the port companies and authorities of the Central American isthmus, has maintained its commitment to publishing this document, completely aware of its great importance.

Central American port statistical s ummary Year 2010

1.Cargo movement 1.1. Cargo handled by country and port The amount of cargo mobilized in Central American ports in 2010 rose to 104.2 million MT, 4.1 million MT more than in 2009, for a growth rate similar to that year of 4.1%. Because of the worldwide economic crisis, in 2008 and 2009, most countries of the isthmus saw the movement of containerized cargo decline to a certain extent. From 2006 to 2007, cargo movement had a variation of 9.4%, while from 2007 to 2008, the increase was 1.9% and from 2008 to 2009, it was 4.2%. From 2008 to 2009, it rose 4.2% and from 2009 to 2010, the increase was similar (4.1%), with the difference being that in the latest period, the rate of increase applied to all the countries of the isthmus. As shown in Table 1.1.1, these increases in cargo movement in Central America are the result of the cargo flow mainly from Panama, which handled close to half the cargo moved in the region during this period.

Along this line, 2010 has been a year of recovery. The countries show increases; however, as seen in Table 1.1.1, countries like Guatemala, El Salvador, and Costa Rica have still not recovered to the cargo levels handled up till 2007, with negative or null growth rates in 2010 compared to that year.

In the case of Guatemala, during that period, cargo handling remained relatively constant, while El Salvador had negative growth of cargo volume handled (-12.4%), as did Costa Rica (-1.5%). Panama, Honduras, and Nicaragua show effective progress in cargo handling during the same period (2007/2010), while Panama ended it with an accumulated rate of 22.3%, Honduras with 7.8%, and Nicaragua with 2.4%. Despite the increases in 2010, there has been very little variation in terms of the percentage distribution of cargo handling. Likewise, cargo volume for Panama, like the year before, is higher than the CACM. Chart 1.1.1 shows the percentage distribution of cargo by country from 2007 to 2010.

Central American port statistical s ummary Year 2010

Cargo movement in ports by country in 2010 is described below: Guatemala It is in first place in the CACM and second in the isthmus in terms of cargo movement. From 2007 to 2010, the average growth rate was 1.3% and from 2007 to 2010, there was no growth. The Port of Quetzal is in first place for cargo movement in the country with 7.5 million MT, followed by Santo Tomas de Castilla with 4.7 million MT. Both ports had negative growth rates last year but this year, they recovered from the drop with growth of 12.9% and 8.6%, respectively. The Port of Barrios saw movement of 2.7 million MT for an increase of 8.0% and Boyas de San José moved 535,500 MT less than in 2009. El Salvador It had growth in 2010 compared to 2009, with an increase of 9.4% after two consecutive years of reduction in cargo volume with an average annual negative growth rate (-1.9%) from 2007 to 2010, reflecting an accumulated decline of -12.4% (a reduction of cargo movement by 764.54 MT in the period). Acajutla, the main port, had a 17.5% reduction in 2009 compared to 2008, while it increased by 10.6% in 2010 compared to 2009. As in the previous period, Corsain handled less cargo with a decline of -51.7%. This reduction, according to a source in the Port Company, is because bulk cargo vessels have transferred operations to the Port of La Unión and a reduction in the shoals of fish. Honduras The main port of this country, Cortés, increased cargo movement in 2010 compared to 2009 by 12.0%. The Port of San Lorenzo had a growth rate over the previous period of 27.9%, while the Ports of Tela and Castilla had negative growth rates of -7.2% and -14.8%, respectively.

CENTRAL AMERICAN MARITIME TRANSPORT COMMISSION COCATRAM


Central American port statistical s ummary Year 2010

Nicaragua The port with the greatest increase in cargo volume in 2010 was El Bluff with a variation of 30.6% compared to 2009. The Port of Corinto follows with a 7.3% increase and representing around 70’% of the cargo the country handles. The other ports – Arlen Siu and Sandino – have growth rates of 4.0% and 3.3%, respectively. Puerto Cabezas had a -8.5% drop in cargo movement compared to last year. Costa Rica In 2009, it had a reduction in cargo movement at all ports; however, in 2010, there was better performance with its main ports, Limón-Moín and Caldera, seeing 10.9% and 13.3% increases, respectively, compared to 2009. The Punta Morales Terminal had an increase of 39.4%, while the Fertica and Puntarenas Terminals continued to decline with negative rates of -19.1% and -9.7%, respectively. Panamá As mentioned above, Panama continues to lead the rest of the Central American countries in terms of cargo volume handling and it is showing that over time, it is gradually gaining a larger share. From 2007 to 2010, it has an accumulated growth rate of 22.3%. It is important to note that more than 80% of the cargo handled in the Panamanian port system is from transshipping. The increases in cargo in ports for the 2009 to 2010 period are led by the Samba Bonita Terminal, which grew by 668.3% this year, going from 4,100 MT in 2009 to 31,700 MT in 2010. It is followed by Colón Port Terminal with 76.22% growth in cargo movement. The Bocas Fruit Co. and Decal Terminals also had major increases: 66.4% and 60.0%, respectively. PPB and PPC and Chiriqui Grande had increases of 29.7%, 25.4%, and 6.6%, respectively. The Charco Azul petroleum terminal, which had a 123% increase in 2009 over 2008, saw a drop of -61.6% in 2010. The Granelera Terminal had a -72.5% decrease. Table 1.1.2 shows cargo movements in ports in 2009 and 2010, as well as the absolute and percentage variations between the two years.

Table 1.2.2 gives information comparing foreign trade movement in thousands of MT going through maritime ports and foreign trade as a whole in the countries of the isthmus. Note that the figures for cargo mobilized in Guatemala, Honduras, and Panama are greater than those recorded for foreign trade. This is mainly because of cargo in transit that is loaded or offloaded in other countries. Nicaragua, for example, loads or offloads part of its cargo through the Port of CortĂŠs and El Salvador loads or offloads through Honduras and Guatemala, and Costa Rica does so in Panama. Panama also has major transshipment activity in its ports, interoceanic

1.3. Cargo handled by seaboard The countries of the Central American Isthmus have ports on both seaboards, except for El Salvador which only has coast on the Pacific. The Caribbean ports mobilize 51.3% of the total cargo on the isthmus, while the Pacific accounts for the remaining 48.7%. Compared to previous years, the Caribbean had a 3.6 percentage point increase in share, while the Pacific decreased by the same amount. Of the 61.73 million MT that were disembarked in the period, 46.5% was on the Caribbean Seaboard and 53.5% was on the Pacific. This ratio has been the general tendency, except in 2009 when there was a significant increase at the Charco Azul Port in Panama that resulted in the Pacific Seaboard having more cargo movement. Likewise, of the 42.4 million MT of loaded, 58.3% was on the Caribbean and 41.7% was on the Pacific. Chart 1.1.3.1 shows cargo volume totals and by seaboard in thousands of MT loaded and offloaded.

There was a 14.8% increase of cargo offloaded and an 8.7% increase in cargo loaded on the Caribbean Seaboard. Cargo movement on the Caribbean Seaboard increased 12.0% over 2009, equivalent to 5.75 million MT. The ports with the greatest volume of cargo mobilized on this seaboard in 2010 are MIT and PPC in Panama, Limón-Moín in Costa Rica, Puerto Cortés in Honduras, and Santo Tomas Castilla in Guatemala, which mobilized around 70% of the cargo. Meanwhile, the Pacific Seaboard had a -3.2% drop in cargo movement, equivalent to 1.65 million MT. The ports with the greatest cargo volumes on this seaboard in 2010 are PPB, which moves 30% of the cargo for this seaboard, followed by Quetzal in Guatemala, Charco Azul in Panama, and Acajutla in El Salvador. Together they represent 70% of the total cargo.

1.4. Cargo handled by quarter In 2010, the average quarterly movement of cargo on the Central American Isthmus was 18.4 million MT, of which 12.3 million MT corresponded to movement of the CACM. The average quarterly movement of cargo by country was 4.2 million MT for Guatemala, 1.3 million MT for El Salvador, 2.6 million MT for Honduras, 0.8 million MT for Nicaragua, 3.4 million MT for Costa Rica, and 6.1 million MT for Panama. The first quarter of 2010 had the greatest increase in cargo, 12.3% more than the same period in 2009. During this quarter, all countries increased cargo movement in their ports. Costa Rica had the greatest increase with 24.8% more than for the same period the year before. Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Honduras also had major increases that quarter: 17.2%, 15.3%, and 15.8%, respectively. With regard to quarterly comparison in 2010, Chart 1.4.1 shows the variation in cargo movement for the Central American Isthmus and for the CACM and the countries making it up. The greatest variation happened in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of the year when there was a reduction in the CACM countries, mainly in Guatemala.

Between the 1st and 2nd quarters of the year, the variation in the isthmus was 10.9% and in the CACM, it reached 14.3%. The country with the greatest variation in this period was Guatemala with 32.0%, followed by Nicaragua with a percentage variation of 24.5%. The greatest drops in cargo movement in the ports happened between the 2nd and 3rd quarters. All the countries of the CACM had lower cargo volumes, resulting in a variation of -11.2% for the Central American Isthmus and -19.1% for the CACM. Guatemala and Nicaragua had the greatest declines in cargo with -26.3% and -16.6%, respectively. Panama was the exception during this period. It had sustained increases between quarters all year, with the greatest percentage increase (7.2%) between the 2nd and 3rd quarters. The quarterly average for movement of offloaded cargo in the Central American Isthmus was 15.4 million MT in 2010, with the average in the CACM reaching 7.8 million MT. Panama was the country with the greatest quarterly average for offloading, with 7.6 million MT, followed by Guatemala with 2.6 million MT and Costa Rica with a quarterly average of 1.9 million MT. Chart 1.4.2 displays the tendency shown by offloaded cargo movement in the ports of the Central American Isthmus and its countries during the four quarters of 2010. As can be seen, the highest variation happened between the 1st and 2nd quarters.

The volume of General Cargo in 2010 was 2.71 million MT, a 19.95% increase compared to 2009. The most important variations were in El Salvador with a 147.3% increase because of major offloading of iron and iron products, followed by Nicaragua with a 101.8% increase. Panama dropped by 10.6%. Guatemala accounted for 43.33% and Costa Rica for 23.0% of this type of cargo in the Central American region. Ro-Ro Cargo handling, which had been dropping in previous years, rose 34.8% in 2010, mainly because of Nicaragua and Panama increasing this type of cargo by 92.9% and 101.2%, respectively. On the other hand, Guatemala and Honduras continued to see drops of -41-4% and -46.3%, respectively. Bulk Solids increased by 19.35% while Bulk Liquids dropped by 26.24%. Both the increase for Bulk Solids and the decrease for Bulk Liquids happened in all the countries.

In terms of cargo distribution by country, there were no significant variations in the CACM countries. For cargo distribution by type of handling, General and Ro-Ro Cargo continued to decline as in the previous period, although this time the reduction was less marked with share percentages of 4.63% and 0.64%, respectively. For General Cargo, the reduction in its share did not have a direct influence in the CACM. Ro-Ro Cargo did not suffer severe effects as happened last year. The variation for these from 2009 to 2010 was 28.2% and -8.3%, respectively. The share of Bulk Liquids dropped by close to three percentage points, reflecting the tendency in most countries, with a decrease of -6.3% between 2009 and 2010. The distribution of Containerized Cargo and Bulk Solids was not affected in terms of its percentage share in the CACM. They increased by 3.1% and 2.47%, respectively. The increased volume of these kinds of cargo was 14.1% for Containerized and 19.5% for Bulk Solids.

1.7. Origin and destination of cargo For the second year running, the new section of Origin and Destination of cargo is presented to offer users other elements for making decisions. This year, it is possible to report the information for Panama that was not included last year because the source did not have this information. Nevertheless in this publication, there is no breakdown by geographic region of the figures for origin and destination for the Ports of Tela and La Ceiba in Honduras or the Ports of Puntarenas, Punta Morales Terminal, and Fertica Terminal in Costa Rica, as well as for the PATSA and T DECAL port in Panama because the corresponding sources did not have this information available. In addition, the information for origin and destination of cargo by geographic regions of the world for Port Caldera of Costa Rica is based on estimates generated by COCATRAM because the sources did not have the necessary information. COCATRAM thanks the National Institute for Statistics and Census of Costa Rica, INEC, for supplying the statistical information necessary to generate this information. It is also important to note that the cargo volumes for transshipping at the CCT, MIT, PPB, and PPC ports are not included. The performance of Central American international maritime commerce in 2010 was very similar to the previous period. The North American market is still the main region for trade with Central America with a 47.50% share, equivalent to 37.28 million MT. South America also continues in second place with a 13.18% share of cargo movement in the region. Asia took over from Europe in third place with a 9.80% share and Central America and Europe accounted for 7.22% and 5.37%, respectively, and the Caribbean region had a 3.43% share of cargo movements on the isthmus. In regards to origin, in 2010 North America accounted for 24.44 million MT or 31.14% of the total cargo going to Central America. Of this, 57.62% was offloaded at Caribbean ports. South America took second place for offloading with 7.96 million MT or 10.14%, of which 75.27% entered along the Pacific Seaboard. In terms of destination, North America and South America were also in first and second place with 12.83 and 2.39 million MT, equivalent to 16.35% and 3.04%, respectively. Cargo from North America was mostly exported along the Caribbean Seaboard (62.19%), while that from South America was through ports on the Pacific Seaboard (75.27%). Europe represented 2.92%, Central America 2.71%, and Asia 2.01%. The Caribbean islands represented 1.27%.

Vessels attended

The movement of vessels arriving at Central American ports was on the rise during the first seven years since 2000, with annual growth rates of between 2% and 6%. In 2008, this trend was reversed and there was negative growth of -1.65% that continued in 2009 with -5.13%. In 2010, there was some recovery with growth of 7.08% over 2009. During this period, 17,537 vessels arrived in the region’s ports. Of these, container ships represented 58.34% of the total, increasing their share by 12.01% over 2009. The shares for conventional and petroleum vessels also increased. They had declined the previous year, but increased by 18.99%, and 3.05%, respectively, in 2010. Refrigerator and bulk solid vessels had increases of 6.11% and 2.62%, respectively. The greatest decreases were for gas carrier (-22.14%) and barges (-21.86%). Bulk liquid vessels also decreased (-13.68%), as did cruise ships (-11.39%) and Ro-Ro vessels, which saw a slight decline. Chart 2.1 shows the distribution of vessels by type in the region in 2010. Panama had 12.5% more vessels arrive, Guatemala and Nicaragua each had a 7.4% increase, while Honduras had 44 more vessels than it did in 2009 (an increase of 0.6%). El Salvador had 10 fewer vessels arrive. At the regional level, the increased arrival of vessels happened mainly at the MIT port (14.1%), Limón-Moín (13.5%), PPB (10.1%), Port Cortés (9.7%), and PPC (9.2%). The region had 703 cruise ships arrive with Costa Rica receiving 34.28% of the total, followed by Panama with 33.14%. The main ports where these vessels anchored were Colón 2000 (18.35%), Puerto Limón (16.22%), Roatán, Honduras (12.80%), and Puntarenas (10.38%). At the CACM ports, as in previous years, container ships accounted for the greatest volume (52.95%) although their share dropped slightly compared to 2009 (54.5%). Charts 2.1 and 2.2 show the distribution of vessels by type in 2010.

Containers and trailers

Container movement in Central America was increasing in the past decade, except for 2009 when it dropped by 8.8% compared to 2008. In 2010, container movement recovered with an increase of 1.7 million TEU over the year before, an increase of 24.7%. The region’s ports handled 4,912,775 million containers and trailers of different types and sizes, equivalent to 8,480,396 TEU, and of these 72.15% were full. Forty-foot containers were the ones most moved at the CACM ports (70.28%) and twenty-foot containers were the second most with 19.90%. PPB led in container movement with 32.5% of the total for the region, followed by MIT with 18.9% and Limón-Moín with 10.4%. Although the region has 21 container ports, movement is concentrated in 10 main ones: PPB, MIT, Limón-Moín, PPC, Cortés, CCT, Santo Tomás de Castilla, Barrios, Quetzal, and Caldera. Together they account for 96.2% of the movement in the region. In regards to the rates of variation between 2009 and 2010 for each port, PPC stands out as the port with the greatest increase (94.1%), followed by PPB (37.1%), and Quetzal and Santo Tomás de Castilla (22.5% and 20.2%, respectively). The rest of the port, which had increased container movement, had variations of less than 20%. Ports with declines in container movement compared to 2009 were Bluff (-7.6%), Castilla (-7.5%), Caldera (-3.8%), and El Rama (-2.1%). The general ratio between full and empty was 2.68 and is more frequent in 43´, 40´, and 20´ containers. The ratio for larger containers is greater (5.57 for 48´and 45´). For 52´ containers, the ratio rose to 29.11 full for one empty.
