Published on

The Panama Canal Expansion is due to be completed by the end of 2014 / start of 2015. It will massively affect trade between Asia & the US, given the accessibility larger ships will then have directly to US Gulf and East Coast ports. The expansion will allow Post Panamax ships that can carry up to 12,500 TEU (20 foot containers) to transit the Panama Canal, the current limit for Panamax ships is 4,800. This is basically a 160% increase in the capacity of container ships that can transit the Panama Canal. This also applies to bulk ships used to transit ores, grains & coal, as well as to LNG and Oil tankers. It is going to open up significant traffic for East Coast & Gulf ports. In this presentation the impacts of the Panama Canal on the US, its' ports, supply chains are looked at. As well as importantly the impact it could have for investors in various assets.

  6. 6. Panama Canal ExpansionHuge increase in ships that can travel through expanded Panama Canal:1) Post Panamax Container ships which represent 50% of world’s totalcontainer shipping capacity2) Crude Oil Tankers that represent up to 40% of world’s capacity3) LNG tankers that represent 90% of global capacity4) Dry Bulk Carriers that represent 80% of global capacityExpansion plays into trend of larger container ships displacing smaller shipsNote in 2000 Average Ship Size was 2,900 TEU, in 2012 was 6,100. With50% of ships on order 10,000 TEU+ this is set to continue due to largeEconomies of scale available in using larger ships6
  7. 7. Implications for US• Expansion will open up Gulf and East Coast Ports to significantly more trade &accelerate traffic growth given that larger vessels & a larger proportion of globalshipping fleet will be able to transit the Canal.• Currently 80% of Asian Imports into the US come via West Coast ports ; set tochange significantly given accessibility of larger ships to the Gulf / East Coast Ports& Population Centers.• Efficiency Gains & Costs Savings will be available by shipping directly to East coastand Gulf ports to access Mid-West and East Coast population centers.• Shippers will be able to bypass often congested West Coast ports to ship directlyto Gulf & East coast region7

  9. 9. 9
  10. 10. Implications for US• Average Freight Transit Times: Asia to West Coast US 12.3 days by ship, Transittime from West Coast to East Coast via US intermodal system another 6 days so18.3 days in total.• Asia to East Coast directly via Ship using Panama Canal 21.6 days. More time BUTCost efficiencies as all water route• Reliability of shipping from Asia to East coast via Panama Canal is another majorcompetitive advantage versus shipping to West coast & using inter-model systemto reach East Coast. Schedule Reliability is very important for shippers & theircustomers.• Expansion will relieve congestion at the Canal which raises costs for shippers &customers. During peak season it is not uncommon for vessels to wait 10 days totransit canal at cost of $50,000 idle cost per day10
  11. 11. 11Transit times for freight from Asia to US cities by ship & intermodal system
  12. 12. Implications for US Ports• East & Gulf Coast Ports are gearing up to be Post Panamax Ready; defined as achannel depth of 50 feet net of usable tide, as well as sufficient docking & cranefacilities• East Coast & Gulf coast ports & railroads are deepening harbors, raising bridges,improving tunnels & railways, increasing dock facilities, installing new cranes toaccommodate larger ships & much greater cargo volumes• Most competitive regions, ports & systems will end up with the greatest cargo…stealth arms race underway leading to increased investment• East Coast Ports most likely to benefit will be those serving ‘as interstate retaildistribution centers for Asian imports such as Norfolk, Charleston & Savannah’quote from US Army Engineer Institute for Water Resources12
  13. 13. 13Current Channel Depths at Selected Ports: 50 feet is required for Post Pananamax Ships
  14. 14. 14US Primary and Secondary Ports
  15. 15. Select US East / Gulf Ports ready for largervessels by 2015• New York / New Jersey: 2ndbusiest US port with 5.6m TEU p.a.At 50 foot depth already, will be ready once Bayonne Bridge lifted to 215 feet toaccommodate post Panamax ships• Norfolk, Virginia: 7thbusiest US container port with 2m TEU p.a. Currently PostPanamax ready• Baltimore, Maryland: Currently Post Panamax Ready. 650k TEU p.a• Charleston, South Carolina: 9thbusiest US container port with 1.35m TEU p.a. Athigh tide can accommodate ships with 50 feet draft so technically already ready.• Houston, Texas: 2.1m TEU containers p.a & important for bulks & petrochemicals• Mobile, Alabama: Important for bulks transited down via Mississippi river. Airbusbuilding a $600m plant in Mobile will bolster port.• Miami, Florida: 11thbusiest US port with 950k TEU p.a. Huge for cruise traffic.Dredging to deepen port to 50 feet. Tunnel being built under Biscayne Bay toconnect Port facilities & interstate highways.15
  16. 16. Select US Ports likely ready post 2015•Savannah, Georgia: 3rd busiest US port with 3m TEU per annum. Anticipated readyby 2016.•Jacksonville, Florida. Disney committed to directing all imports through the port•Wilmington, NC•Tampa, Florida: Largest fertilizer export port globally•New Orleans, Louisiana: Important port for bulks transited down via the Mississippiriver16
  17. 17. Implication for US Railways• US intermodal system (rail, truck, waterways) needs to remain competitive &accommodate extra cargo; this is spurring investment. For example:• Florida East Coast Railway: Investing in on-dock rail facility at Port Miami to beready 2014. Allow double stack containers directly to Jacksonville in under 9 hours• CSX: National Gateway Project to create more efficient double-stack routebetween mid Atlantic Ports & Mid west.• Expanded on-dock rail facility at Savannah• New near dock, inter-modal facility near Port of Baltimore• Connectivity with Ports good, expanding inland capacity to handle extra cargo• Norfolk Southern: Heartland Corridor Project enable Double Stack Freight byincreasing clearances through 30 channels between Virginia Ports & Mid West;taken 250 miles of route between Hampton Roads, Virginia to Chicago17
  18. 18. 18Norfolk Southern: Investing in Crescent Corridor to connect Louisiana & New Jersey. Willmove containers more efficiently from the Gulf to major distribution & population centers
  19. 19. 19Major US Railway Freight Lines
  20. 20. Implications for US Waterways & Grain exports• Lower Mississippi Ports like New Orleans & Mobile significant for export of drybulks like grains, ores, coal brought down by the river. 40m tons of grains broughteach year from Midwest for export via Mississippi• 25% of all traffic going through Panama Canal from Atlantic to Pacific is Grains.30% is petroleum products & chemicals. Huge scope to increase with expansion• Shale Gas revolution to combine with PC expansion to increase LNG exportpotential. Recent announcement of LNG terminal in Texas• Post Expansion, in terms of Bulk Vessels Post Panamax & Capesize carriers will beable to transit, increasing the tonnage that can be transported on any one shipfrom current limit of 80,000 to 200,000 tons.• More efficient Cape Class ships could reduce cost of exporting grain to North EastAsia from the US Gulf ports by a significant $0.35 per bushel20
  21. 21. 21Inland Waterways connecting US Heartland to the Coast
  22. 22. 22Composition of tonnage transported on the Mississippi River to Gulf
  23. 23. Implication for US Supply Chains• Retailers & manufacturers will remake supply chains to benefit from reduced cost& higher reliability of transit to East Coast Gulf ports near major populationcenters• Investment in Distribution Centers and Manufacturing plants near growing SouthEast & Gulf transit hubs happening and will increase, for example:• Ashley Furniture seeing export opportunities from Mid-Atlantic & frustrated byrail freight delays at Chicago built 3.3m manufacturing & warehouse facility inNorth Carolina.• Airbus building plant in Mobile, Alabama & Boeing in Charleston, SC• Industrial REIT firms such as Prologis & Eastgroup are investing in industrial anddistribution assets near East Coast & Gulf ports to benefit from increased demand• Next slide shows clustering of Distribution Centers around Savannah, Georgia23
  24. 24. 24
  25. 25. Implications for South East US & Charlotte• Boon for South East & Gulf regional economies & cities.• Port cities such as Charleston, Savannah, Norfolk, to benefit. Port traffic will befurther helped by new manufacturing facilities such as Airbus (Mobile), Boeing(Charleston)• Aside from the ports cities, Charlotte, North Carolina to benefit as regionaleconomic hub and major freight, transport distribution center between the coastalports of the Gulf / Mid Atlantic & population centers of East Coast & Mid West.• Charlotte is connected to Charleston, Savannah, & Wilmington by NorfolkSouthern Railway & freight line capacity is being expanded on these routes.• Heavy Investment underway in Charlotte: New Intermodal Center at Charlotte-Douglas Airport will connect to ‘Crescent Corridor’ Rail Freight services allowing250,000 container throughput capacity per annum25
  26. 26. Investment Implications• Significant boon for railways, truck companies active in South East & Gulf region.• Logistics firms to benefit as more complex freight patterns and options increasestheir customers’ desire to have 3rdparties handle complicated logistics• Increase demand for Manufacturing Bases, Distribution Centers, WarehousingFacilities to benefit value of industrial assets, land and industrial REITs active inthe Gulf, Mid-Atlantic regions.• Strengthens trends of SIGNIFICANT FLOW of labor and capital into the South EastUS …• Residential Real Estate in cities that are impacted will benefit• Suppliers of port and rail infrastructure & equipment to benefit• Shippers who can reallocate ships to new routes will benefit• Agrarian plays & exporters in US to benefit• Bulk, container & freight markets will be severely disrupted resulting in hugewinners and losers.• STRENGTHENS EVEN FURTHER CONVICTION THAT GENESIS IS PURCHASINGRESIDENTIAL ASSETS IN THE RIGHT REGION OF THE US AT THE RIGHT TIME26
