       美国集装箱运输公司“美森轮船”发布财务报告,2016年第四季度,受船用重油价格上涨和燃油附加费征收时间的影响,公司净利润降至1940万美元,15年同期为2660万美元。
 
       而第四季度(截止到12月31日)总收入5.193亿美元,15年同期为4.948亿美元。
 
       第四季度,海洋运输收入较15年同期增加510万美元,涨幅1.3%。中国、阿拉斯加和南太平地区的集装箱运输量大大增加,弥补了较低的燃油附加费、夏威夷和关岛地区较低的集装箱运输量和中国航线的较低运费所带来的损失。
 
       美森首席执行官Matt Cox说道:“第四季度,美森的核心业务达到预期水平。但11月中旬以来逐渐上涨的船用重油价格严重影响了该季度的盈利情况。”
 
       16年,尽管净利润由上年的1.03亿下跌到8050万美元,美森的总收入仍保持在19亿美元,15年为18亿。
 
       16年,海洋运输收入增加4310万美元,涨幅2.9%。增长主要来自于公司新收购的阿拉斯加航线,弥补了中国航线的较低运费和较低燃油附加费所带来的损失。
 
       Cox同时指出:“尽管16年的财务数据不如上一年来的漂亮,但我们达成了几项对未来起到关键性作用的投资。我们订造了两艘Kanaloa级船舶,完成夏威夷船队更新计划。此外,我们收购了Span Alaska,把物流平台覆盖至阿拉斯加地区。”
 
       美森表示,受关岛地区竞争对手新船投入使用的影响,2017年的运营收入将有所减少。

Bunker Fuel Prices Affect Matson’s Earnings
 
US-based container carrier Matson reported a net income of USD 19.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, down from USD 26.6 million seen a year earlier, negatively impacted by a surge in bunker fuel prices and timing of fuel surcharge collections.
 
The company’s revenue for the three-month period ended December 31, 2016 was USD 519.3 million compared with USD 494.8 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2015.
 
Ocean transportation revenue increased USD 5.1 million, or 1.3 percent, during the fourth quarter 2016 compared with the fourth quarter 2015. This increase was primarily due to higher container volume in China, Alaska and South Pacific, largely offset by lower fuel surcharge revenue, lower container volume in Hawaii and Guam, and lower freight rates in the company’s China service.
 
“Matson’s core businesses performed largely as expected in the fourth quarter; however, the quarter was negatively impacted by the increase in bunker fuel prices from mid-November through December,” Matt Cox, Matson’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said.
 
While its full year 2016 net income dropped to USD 80.5 million from USD 103 million seen in 2015, Matson’s revenue for 2016 stood at USD 1.9 billion, up from USD 1.8 billion reported a year earlier.
 
Ocean transportation revenue increased USD 43.1 million, or 2.9 percent, during the year ended December 31, 2016 compared with the previous year, primarily due to the inclusion of revenue from the company’s acquired Alaska service for the full year period, partially offset by lower freight rates in the China service and lower fuel surcharge revenue.
 
“While our full year 2016 financial results failed to match the exceptional results achieved in 2015…2016 was a year in which we made critical investments for our future. We finalized our Hawaii fleet renewal program by ordering two new Kanaloa Class vessels and we expanded our Logistics platform into Alaska with the acquisition of Span Alaska,” Cox added.
 
Matson said that its 2017 operating income will be lower than 2016 due to increased competition in Guam where further losses are expected due to the launch of a competitor’s second ship.
