Romania Shipping Report

BMI View: BMI is holding with its throughput forecasts for the Romanian port of Constantza for 2015 2016. We highlight however that the continued focus and investment at the port's dry bulk operations offers upside risk to these projections and over our medium term outlook.

We forecast growth in the port's total tonnage and container volumes will strengthen y-o-y in both 2015 and 2016. In 2015 we project the port's total tonnage volumes will expand by 3.7% to reach 57.7mn tonnes, a strengthening on the 0.9% y-o-y increase recorded in 2014. Container volumes at the port are estimated to expand by 3.8% in 2015 up from the 1.08% y-o-y increase recorded in 2014. 2016 will witness a further expansion in y-o-y growth in throughput at the port, with tonnage volumes projected to tick up by 4.1% and box volumes predicted to increase by 3.9%. This will see the port handle a forecast 60.1mn tonnes and 720,603TEUs in 2016.

Risks to Outlook

The focus and investment that is underway at the port of Constantza's dry bulk operations offers upside risk to our medium term forecasts. ADM is the latest agribusiness company to acquire assets at the port. The company joins Canopus Star, a joint venture between grain trader Cargill Inc. and freight handler Transport Trade Services (TTS) and Nidera, who already...
