Trade expected to grow faster in 2019

Brazilian trade is expected to grow faster in 2019, overshadowing what is expected to be a grim Christmas for retailers following a weak third quarter performance as Manaus, the electronics assembly hub of Brazil grinds to a near standstill.

Highlights

  • Brazilian imports and exports grew just 3%, up from the second-quarter result of 1%, which was impacted by a nationwide truckers’ strike that brought the country to a standstill
  • Third-quarter imports increased just 3% - the lowest performance for imports since the third quarter of 2016
  • Companies are now looking at integrated intermodal transport solutions, prompting Maersk to grow more than 10% in this area alone in the third quarter.
