Israel Shipping Report Q4 2015 - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Sep 01 2015

We expect positive growth at the two primary Israeli ports of Haifa and Ashdod in 2015 and 2016, although at Eilat, where throughput is often erratic, we now forecast that gross tonnage volumes will decline in 2015. The ports will for the most part benefit from the base effects of a rebound in economic growth following disruption caused by the Operation Protective Edge conflict in 2014. The port of Haifa will return to growth following two years of decline in its container throughput. The Israeli ports sector is undergoing a state of flux, with the major ports set to be expanded with new, privately operated, terminals, which will be able to handle the larger vessels that are becoming the norm on the key Asia-Europe trade route on which Israel stands. However, the se developments face strong opposition from current port workers and unions , which is impacting throughput . The latest strike at Haifa and Ashdod was held at the end of May 2015.
