CENTRAL AMERICAN PORT STATISTICAL SUMMARY, YEAR 2013

The Central American Commission of Maritime Transport (COCATRAM) takes pleasure in presenting to the maritime port community of the Central American Isthmus, the Summary of Maritime Port Statistics of the Year 2013, as tool of decision-making and research in the subsector. COCATRAM structures the Statistical Summary in two parts, the first one composed by three sections: Cargo, Vessels and Containers briefly approaching the principal aspects of port performance of the Central American region during the year 2013. The second part present annexes with the statistical tables consolidating the regional information. The principal source of information is Companies and Port Authorities of the region that compile their national statistics, through the members of the Central American Maritime and Port Network Statistics, working since the year 2000 and coordinated by COCATRAM. The source of information comes from forty-five foreign trade ports, operated by state and private companies in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. The three sections, that shape the first part of the Summary, present general information related to traffic of cargo, vessels and containers by port and country. It also considers total volume of foreign trade, type of cargo and vessels and container size. In this edition, information related to origin and destination is omitted because usually take longer to compile and process producing delays in the edition of the summary. In the next months, COCATRAM will publish a supplementary document with the above-mentioned information. COCATRAM, Port Operators and Port Authorities of the Central American Isthmus will continue working together in support of their commitment to accomplish this yearly document, aware of the great importance that implies.

Cargo Throughput

1.1. Cargo throughput by country and port In 2013, the cargo throughput at the Central American region was 134.78 million MT, an increase of 3.4 million MT or 3.3% over 2012. Despite the increase in cargo volume, growth slowed down from previous years when it was

double digit (11.7% for 2010-2011 and 12.1% for 2011-2012). The absolute increase in those periods compared with 2013 was 12.2 million MT in 2010-2011 and 14.0 million MT in 2011-2012.

El Salvador During the period, this country had a throughput of 5.7 million MT. Like last year, its share in the isthmus dropped, going from 4.5% in 2012 to 4.2% in 2013, and a rate of decrease of -1.3%. This was mainly due to reductions at Corsain (-77.9%) and La Uni贸n (-74.3%). Acajutla had growth of 3.9%.

CENTRAL AMERICAN MARITIME TRANSPORT COMISSION 13


CENTRAL AMERICAN PORT STATISTICAL SUMMARY, YEAR 2013

The main ports in the region were Panama Port Balboa with 22.2 million MT, with a reduction of 7.8%, while Manzanillo International Terminal also had a slight reduction in cargo volume of -1.1%. ChiriquĂ­ Grande had a throughput of 12.4 million MT in 2013, mainly bulk liquids (12.4 million MT), a 24.9% increase over 2012 for this type of cargo. However, in comparing total throughput in 2013 with the year before, there was a reduction stemming from cargo throughput for civil works projects underway in the west of the Republic of Panama. Limon-Moin handled 10.5 million MT, mostly containerized cargo (7.9 million MT), an increase of 4.7% for this segment. Cortes handled 10.0 million MT with increases for general cargo (15.3%), bulk solids (17.3%), and bulk liquids (10.3%). Containerized and Ro-Ro cargo throughput dropped by -3.8% and -20.8%, respectively. Quetzal had a total throughput of 9.4 million MT with increases for general cargo (47.9%), containerized cargo (11.1%), bulk solids (13.4%), and bulk liquids (10.6%). The Charco Azul bulk liquids terminal throughput was 8.7 million MT, followed by Panama Ports Cristobal with 6.3 million MT, SANTOCAS with 5.9 million MT, and Acajutla with 4.1 million MT. The latter had increases in general, containerized, and Ro-RO cargo (54.8%, 17.9%, and 159.5%, respectively), while bulk solids and bulk liquids dropped by -8.3% and -5.1%, respectively).

The volume of traffic shown in Table 4 does not include transhipping, transit, raw materials and finished products from free trade zones (maquilas) and cargo of the Col贸n Free Zone and the Panama Petroleum Free Zone since these are not either imports or exports. Most of this freight comes from the Panamanian ports at either end of the canal.

1.5. Cargo throughput by type Containerized cargo accounted for the highest throughput volume with 69.6 million MT or 52.0% of C.A. total, a decrease from 54.1% from the previous year, caused mainly by the increase of bulk cargo in the region. Liquid bulk segment was in second position with 31.2%, an increase of 1.5 percentage points compared to 2012. There was also an increase in solid bulk by 1.6 percentage points; while there was less general cargo and Ro-Ro cargo (see Table 7).

CENTRAL AMERICAN PORT STATISTICAL SUMMARY, YEAR 2013

Ro-Ro Vessel: Ship designed for transport of box/trailers and vehicles loaded and offloaded using a maritime-overland transport ramp. Solid Bulk Cargo: Solid material loaded directly into the cargo spaces of a ship without any intermediate form of containment or packing and is loaded or offloaded with a crane or in combination with conveyors. Solid Bulk Vessel: Specialized vessel for the transport of solid bulk products. Terminal: Facility established in or outside of a port made up by infrastructure, facilities and surfaces included in its water zone that allows for the full carrying out of port operations. 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. Type of Cargo: Segment of merchandise moved at ports according to its form and physical characteristics (General, Containerized, Ro-Ro, Bulk Liquid, Bulk Solid, Others).
