25 Dec’12 Fortnightly update on Logistics Industry

In The Spotlight
A tough year drawing to a close Logistics companies would be happy to put 2012 behind, another year which has not been too good for India’s manufacturing & export sector, and by extension, the logistics sector. The going was tough even in FY12, when overall EBITDA and net profit fell for the sector. In FY12, aggregate EBITDA fell 4% and net profit fell a sharp 33% for the companies in our sample. In fact, things may have improved marginally in FY13. In Q2 for example, while aggregate EBITDA was still down around 8%, reported net profit improved 39% as some companies managed to turn around operations, and also helped by other income items. Revenue growth though was a mere 9%, indicating that volume growth was under pressure. (see table ‘Quarterly Results’ on page 10) On the stock markets too, a majority of the companies underperformed. Only about a third of the sector companies managed to give a one-year return greater than the market. We have included a new table ‘Comparision with 52 Week high/lows and All Time High’ on Page 8. This shows other than Blue Dart, all companies are quoting significantly below their all-time-high prices. Most of them are more than 50% lower than ATH price. The unlisted companies appear to have struggled as well. Some of them were in the market to sell stake in 2012, but could not do so, due to performance deviating widely from projected numbers.

The report presents original data and analysis on several key aspects of the sector, including size of various segments and projections, and highlights investment potential. In the report we have taken a comprehensive look at all the key segments of logistics and supply chain. We find EXIM and agri-logistics areas of great promise.

We expect greater activity from PE funds and MNCs in this decade compared to 2001-10. The report includes information about the key players in the Indian logistic sector and its various segments. “Four-S India Logistics Report 2011-12” is prepared by the research of Four-S Services (, which has covered this sector in detail in India for several years now.

Essar Ports commissions dry bulk terminal at Paradip Essar Ports has commissioned its 16 million tonnes a year (mtpa) dry bulk terminal at Paradip, taking the aggregate handling capacity of Essar Ports to 104 mtpa. The project involved the upgradation and mechanisation of the existing 230-metre-long CQ3 berth at Paradip, with the installation of a fully mechanised ship loading system with a capacity of 5,000 tonnes an hour. It is an all-weather terminal with a capability to handle large size ships. The terminal is connected to the stockyard by a 9-km-long conveyor system having a capacity of 5,000 tonnes/hour. The stock yard has been equipped with two reclaimers with a capacity of 2,500 tonnes/hour each. The terminal will handle iron ore pellets for its anchor customer Essar Steel, which has commissioned a pellet plant of 6 mtpa and is in advanced stages of construction of the second unit of 6 mtpa, taking the total pelletisation capacity to 12 mtpa. Essar Ports plans to expand its capacity to 158 mtpa over the next few years from the present 104 mtpa. Apart from the Paradip terminal, Essar Ports has two operational ports at Hazira and Vadinar.

Transport Corporation of India is investing Rs 150 crore on expanding services and infrastructure to meet the demand from multibrand retail that is expected to grow rapidly following the government move to allow foreign direct investment in the sector. The company will invest about Rs 60-70 crore on setting up new warehouses across the country and about Rs 40 crore on buying new trucks, Transport Corporation of India’s Joint Managing Director Vineet Agarwal told PTI. He said TCI is looking to achieve 15-20 per cent growth in the next 3 years as the business climate is improving and the supply chain division will contribute about one-third of the revenues for the company. At present, TCI’s 40-45 per cent revenues come from freight, while supply chain, express cargo and seaways divisions account for the rest. 4

For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, the company had reported a net profit of Rs 13.14 crore and revenue of Rs 470.37 crore.

Pristine Logistics aims to set up 4 PFTs Pristine Logistics plans to set up 4 private freight terminals (PFT) in Indore, Ludhiana, Patna and Cuttack. In PFT business — rights of which are given by the Railways — operators are allowed to handle various types of goods for the Railways, roads and various value-added services. To become PFT operators, companies have to pay Rs 2 crore to the Railways, out of which Rs 1 crore is paid back after the notification. The Railway Board already has close to 35 proposals from 22 companies for setting up PFTs. The companies include Concor, Kribhco Rail Infrastructure, Lloyd Steel and Hind Terminals, amongst others. The size of each of Pristine’s private freight terminals would be about 50 acres and land has been acquired by the company. The company has received Rs 60-crore investment from India Infrastructure Development Fund of UTI Capital recently. Pristine Logistics is a start-up backed by Amit Kumar, Rajnish Kumar, and Sanjay Mawar. Both Amit and Rajnish were earlier in railway traffic service, and have worked in Container Corporation of India and Gateway Distriparks Ltd, the private container train operator, before starting this venture. According to Railways’ policy, brownfield PFT operators have to share 50 per cent of cargo handling revenue or Rs 20 a tonne — whichever is higher — with the Railways, after two years of operation; while greenfield PFT operators have to share the same five years after commencing operations. The Railways asks for this revenue share because it provides access to its over 65,000km network. Moreover, business of PFTs is expected to increase by offering rail-based transportation services. Holcim employs track and trace software in India Holcim Services (South Asia) Limited, a unit of Holcim Group (Switzerland), announced that it will deploy the Trimble Trako Fleet Management and Visual Cargo solutions for the outbound logistics fleet that transports cement to customers in India. Trimble will provide the Visual Cargo solution to Holcim's ACC Limited and Ambuja Cements Limited plant operations and the GPS/GPRS based Fleet Management solution for use by their contracted transport vendors. Visual Cargo provides advanced dashboard and reporting features that allow logistics managers to monitor, track and manage delivery exceptions. The Fleet Management solution will provide online tools for transport vendors to manage their fleet utilization and driver safety. (Source: Cemnet) Cabotage rules’ relaxation to attract more ships to Vallarpadam terminal The trade and industry welcomed the formal orders in relaxing Cabotage rules, saying that it would help Vallarpadam terminal for optimum utilisation of installed capacity. With these relaxations announced by the Shipping Ministry, the ICTT at Vallarpadam would able to attract more cargo and ships. Instead of insisting of 100 per cent X-ray scanning of all containers, now 100 per cent radiological scanning is made mandatory for all containers routed through ICTT. Air India still losing too much money Air India is still losing cash by the bucketful, according to the Union Minister of Civil Aviation Ajit Singh. The cash flow during the period shows a net shortfall of Rs 404 crore per month with inflows being at Rs 1,348 crore and outflows estimated at Rs 1,752 crore, said a Ministry statement after a review meeting. The Minister said that though there was an overall improvement in the performance of Air India, it is important that the revenue generated should meet the costs incurred. He asked Air India to go into minute operational details to cut costs including those incurred on overseas offices, salaries, fuel and office expenses. He further asked Air India to negotiate with public sector oil marketing 5

Cargo berths at Chidambaranar port evoke strong bidding interest Seven companies have reportedly expressed interest in two berths being auctioned by V.O. Chidambaranar port (formerly Tuticorin port). The Port Trust plans to build North Cargo Berth (NCB) – III for handling thermal coal and rock phosphate cargo through public-private partnership on design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT). Similarly, NCB-IV is being developed to handle thermal coal and copper concentrate. The bid for both the projects will be finalised on Thursday and Friday. The berths have attracted interest from Marg Ltd, Sterlite Ports, Adani Ports, besides consortiums including the Hyderabad-based Transstroy (India) and Russian company OJSC and SEW Infra and Malaysian company Pembinan Radzai Sdn Bhd. The overall berth capacity for coal will be of 30 million tonnes per annum against the floating cargo of 3.5 mpta. The capacity is being enhanced keeping in mind the proposed power projects coming up near the region, said an industry source. Gail will receive first cargo at Dabhol LNG terminal on Dec 28 Gas Authority of India (GAIL) on Monday said it will receive the cargo at LNG terminal at Dabhol by December 28, and expects commissioning by early February. “We will get the first cargo on December 28.
