Let's remind, year before, for the same period, decrease in volumes made 8,2 %. The stake of cargo handling by seaports for the specified period c.y. makes 37,18 million tons,-0,98 % by the similar period of the previous year (the corresponding last year’s dynamics –5,6 %). Situation improvement became the result of sea export growth (by 6 %, up to 20,53 million tons) and import (by 71,7 %, up to 4,32 million tons). At the same time, transit significant for sea ports was reduced to 20,2 %, up to 11,83 million tons). Sea cabotage has decreased even more – up to 40,8 %, to 0,49 million tons. Last year transit decreased by 14 %, cabotage - by 0,6 %. Renewal of river cargo handling highly grows.

Container lines have reliance in fast restoration

Global volumes of container transportations, predictably, in 2010 will restore positions after the last year crisis. It becomes possible in the conditions of economic stabilization and the raised demand which promote essential reduction of a jobless fleet. Thus, Clarksons recently has reconsidered the forecast for 2010 and now expects that container transportations will increase by 7.5 %. In February Clarksons predicted increase at 5.5 %. It is necessary to notice that last year recession of container turnover has made almost 10 %. Analysts of Alphaliner are even more optimistical concerning prospects for 2010, firmly expecting growth over 10 % this year thanking to export growth from Asia. Last forecasts compel lines to admit that growth of cargo transportation volumes which has begun in the end of the last year can be something more, than a simple stocks’ replenishment. Carriers obviously did not expect such demand runup which is proceeded within winter months. The last data of Alphaliner speaks about that the jobless fleet makes 8.9 % from the general tonnage. For the first time this index has decreased lower than 9 % in comparison with February, 2009. In particular, as of the end of March c.y. 455 ships by total capacity of 1.18 million TEU stood idle, that is the lowest level for the last13 months. Despite the inflow of 150 thousand TEU of capacities predicted in April in the market at the expense of new tonnage deliveries, new services launch and renewal of the earlier suspended ones "will absorb" about 60 ships by capacity 3500-6000 TEU each within the next several weeks. Alphaliner now expects that the net increase in capacities will make 9.6 % in 2010, at that time Clarksons expect only 5.6 % - up to 13.7 million TEU. Now the stock of orders for new vessels makes 34.5 % from a tonnage aggregate number. For container trucks of Post-Panamax type the given index remains very high – a 70 % equivalent of the existing capacities. Clarksons in the last report on the container market informs that the balance between supply and demand growth will be set in favour of demand of this year. Nevertheless, some uncertainty remains, the company warns. trans-port

Containerization of the Ukrainian export has made 3,6 %

The level of containerization of the Ukrainian export makes 3,6 %. In accordance with an analytical data of the State committee of statistics of Ukraine this is a stake of the export goods transported abroad by containers, following the last year’s results. In cost estimation the containerized export of the year from Ukraine makes $1,469 billion that is 13,2 % less than the previous year. In import the level of containerization is more considerable – 8,9 % or $4,069 billion. Nevertheless, decrease in volumes of the containerized import is much more convincing – by 58,2 % to the level of 2008. As specifies the State committee of statistics, the basic part, over 90 % of the external economic container turnover, is goes to a sailing charter. This stake makes $4,996 that is 51 % less the previous year’s volume. The second place is by railway transportation where the turnover of containers makes $0,24 billion (-79 % by 2008). The Motor transport took container cargoes in volume of $0,3 billion that is 13 % more than the volume of 2008. The outstanding feature of marine and railway container transportations of Ukraine is a considerable prevalence of import against export (3 times – in sailing charter, 1,6 times – in railway). More smoothed picture is on motor transport, where export and import are almost equal in cost estimation (last year import was transported in the volume twice exceeding export). RZD-PARTNER

According to Prisyazhnyuk, presently the deficiency becomes covered at the expense of 260 thousand t, imported due to the WTO import quota for sugar raw materials from cane.

"We have collected them, have fulfilled the delivery schedule of this production, in conformity with the schedule they should import 200 thousand t of cane till June including have a balance of sugar, and we will trace their obligations every week, the time they carry out them, we will deprive for a licence", - Prisyazhnyuk notes.

"There are two decisions, and we consider their acceptance. One decision is by the Supreme Rada about increase in import of sugar-raw from cane at 100 thousand t that will give a chance to work for sugar factories, or we will go by the previous government’s way - delivery of sugar from Belarus", - declares Prisjazhnjuk. As he said, the decision concerning sugar import will be accepted in the near future.
