The container Australian terminals operator increases the rates for the use of infrastructures in order to compensate the decrease of other revenues

Sims (ACCC): the result could be that the importers and the exporter could have to pay more in order to send the goods

In 2018, according to the last detailed list analysis economic-financial institution anniversary elaborated from Centro Studi of the federation of the Italian shippers Fedespedi, the main Italian terminals operator that operate in the field of the container have recorded an increment of +2.8% of the revenues against a decrease of the -3,3% of the containers enlivened in the managed harbour terminals from the companies(on 4 November 2019). An analogous analysis is annually written up by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) that it approfonditamente examines financial the operating trend and of the terminaliste societies Australian assets in the containerized segment

In fiscal year 2018-19, finished 30th june, the managed harbour terminals from these Australian companies have enlivened a containerized trade pairs to 7,88 million teu, with an light increment of +0.2% on the exercise precedence that turns out to be according to rate of growth more low of last the ten years and that - has explained the Australian authority antitrust - the weakening of the economic activities tied to the distribution of the goods to fields as those of the retail business and the manifacturing industry reflects.

Also the terminaliste societies containerized Australians have recorded, for the third consecutive year, an increase of the turnover that in exercise 2018-19 has been of 1,37 billion dollars Australian (USA 945 million dollars), with an increase that however is diminished by +7.1% of exercise 2017-18 to +1.3% of exercise 2018-19. The "Container stevedoring monitoring report 2018-19" of the ACCC is stopped in particular on this limited increase of the revenues, increase - the document evidences - that is ascribable to an increase of the rates for it uses of harbour infrastructures taxes from the terminalisti to the haulers and the railway operators who - the relationship specifies - have contributed to do so as that for the first time from seven years the medium revenue for handling of the container realized from the industry of the containerized terminalismo has grown. In particular, in exercise 2018-19 the revenues generated from the rates for the use of the infrastructure are increased of +63% and have contribution to compensate a decrease of the -8,1% of the produced medium revenue from the handling of the cargos that results from the competition between the terminals operator and the increasing to be able contractual of the navigation companies.

"He is comprehensible - it has observed the president of the ACCC, Rod Sims - than the terminalisti try to recover some of the burdens for the modernization of the harbour structures from the conveyors, since costoro, as the navigation companies, they benefit of the investments. But since the harbour users have a limited ability to transfer of their activities as answer to the increase of the rates for infrastructure applied by the terminalisti - it has emphasized Sims - the terminalisti are subordinates to a minor competitive pressure time to maintain to lowlands the rates. If today the rates for I use it of infrastructures represent alone 12% of the revenues of the terminalisti, the result could be that the importers and the exporter could have to pay more in order to send the goods". The ACCC has specified that this scene would seem destined to come true as they beginning from demonstrate to the increments of the rates for the use of infrastructures introduced from the Hutchison in the port of Sydney the current month and the analogous increases announced from DP World that will be applied in all its harbour terminals beginning from the next January.
