ICTSI Releases H1 Results

Terminal operator International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has announced a 6% decrease in income in its consolidated financial results for the first half of 2018.

Although the company achieved revenue of USD $661.8 million between January and June, an increase of 10% over the first six months of 2017, net income still dropped to $97.7 million from $103.6 million.

The drop has been attributed primarily to the start-up costs of new terminals in Papua New Guinea and Australia, although their introduction did enable ICTSI to increase TEU volume by 4% in the first half of 2018.

The total consolidated throughput in Q2 was still 5% higher than in 2017, or 3% if the throughput of new terminals is set aside.

Other reasons for the increase in volume included robust global trade activities, particularly in the emerging markets established by ICTSI’s newest terminals.
