RLL Container Report - 10 January 2018
Kenya Railways got the New Year off to a fine start by inaugurating the first commercial freight train on the standard-gauge railway between the port of Mombasa and the inland rail container depot outside the capital, Nairobi. The line was built to carry double-stack trains and so the 52 wagons transported a total of 104 teu on the 9-hour journey up to the Kenyan capital. Coincidentally, that one train load of cargo is roughly equivalent to the volume of trucks operating daily on the highway linking the Indian Ocean port to the nation’s capital. Kenya Railways charges USD 500 to transport a 20-foot container and USD 700 for a 40-foot container, which includes the handling charges at both ends. Rail engineers are already extending the line to neighbouring countries, such as Uganda, South Sudan, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, all of which depend on the port of Mombasa for their imports and exports.

While western investors are still testing the water, China is investing billions in infrastructure projects in Iran. In September CITC Group, China’s state investor, provided Iran with a USD 10 Billion credit line, while China’s development bank is ready to provide an additional USD 15 Billion. Hard on the heels of their Chinese competitors in second place, comes South Korea through its Export-Import Bank, which has extended to Teheran a credit line in the order of Euro 8 Billion. It is calculated that China alone has invested twice as much in the Iranian economy as all the countries of the European Union combined.

The inland German port of Duisburg has carved out for itself a role as the biggest inland container terminal in the European Union. The port has combined both its inland terminals with its sophisticated rail network and the German Autobahn system, which all combine to reduce transport times between the main box ports in the north and its large consumer base in the heart of Western Europe. In addition to eight container terminals, handling 3.6 million teu per annum, Duisburg can offer its clients the services of five tri-modal, container terminals, providing access to road and rail links, as well as the highly-developed European barge fleet.

While China has invested massively in container ports and terminals close to all the major centres of production, it may come as a surprise that the government does not consider containerisation of domestic cargoes to be a major priority. The reason for this apparent anomaly is that the government has other, more pressing priorities. One of those is that the defence of the country’s borders is the first priority of any government and so these rather conservative gentlemen are not inclined to tear up large stretches of strategic rail routes just to suit the exporters of consumer items to North America and Europe. Equally important, the powers-that-be in Beijing have a good grasp of Chinese politics and history, including famines.

There is little doubt that the big story of intermodal transport in the broad gauge region in the first half of 2018 will be the sale of Transcontainer. While the rules for the sale are being set out, there remains the question of which part of the sale will be the better buy. Conventional wisdom suggests that one should bid for the rights to operate the container trains and develop a strategy of increasing the number of journeys and therefore slots on offer each month. After all, what is an intermodal system without its trains, platforms and engines? These are the basic building blocks that attract the customers and therefore the cash. At the same time, however, these are also the crucial elements that burn up cash and grow out-of-date and out-of-fashion rather quickly.
