CENTRAL AMERICAN PORTS STATISTICAL SUMMARY, YEAR 2017

Acknowledgements The Central American Maritime Transport Commission (COCATRAM) is pleased to present the 2017 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 2017. The second part features appendixes containing statistical tables that strengthen information at the regional level. The information contained in this document comes from forty-five 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 handling type , 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, there was not information available when this report was edited. 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 April 2018, and it covers calendar year 2017. 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: marliocampo@cocatram.org.ni.

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).
