Updated: 2007-01-24 14:09

China's total truck export in the January-October period of 2006 reached 128,110 units, with export value totalling US$788 million.

About 90 percent of the export volume was contributed by light-duty trucks with a payload under five tons. Heavy-duty trucks with a payload above 20 tons enjoyed fast growth, increasing by 145.3 percent over the same period the year before.

The top five importers of Chinese trucks are Syria, Iraq, Algeria, Iran and Russia. Truck exports to the European Union continued to rise, registering a sales volume of 762 units and export value of US$3.05 million, an increase of 107 percent and 115.6 percent from the previous year respectively.

Thumbs up Vietnam slashes tariffs on Chinese trucks

Vietnam has lowered import taxes on different kinds of Chinese automobiles, mainly trucks, by 5-10 percentage points, local newspaper Youth reported Thursday.

Under the country's Finance Minsitry decision, from May 1, Chinese vans, pick-ups, common lorries, and three-wheeled light trucks are subject to the tariff of 80 percent instead of 90 percent; trucks weighing 6 tons upwards 50 percent instead of 55 percent; and golf cars, small racing cars and vehicles used to transport goods with total tonnage of no more than 24 tons 40 percent instead of 50 percent.

The tariff adjustment is in line with the Agreement on Trade in Goods between China and the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), including Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam, which was implemented in July 2005.

Post Chinese Trucks shhowing lots of growth in China

By Si Kang

China Automobile Industry Association's latest statistics showed that the sale volume of trucks had increased from a growth rate of 15.45 percent in 2006 to 21.12 percent in the first quarter in 2007. Moreover, the truck sale was succeeded in whole line, which contains the segment truck markets in heavy trucks, medium trucks, light trucks, mini trucks, vans, incomplete vehicles and semi-trailer tractors. The sale volume went up by more than 22 percent in the segment truck markets of heavy type, medium type, light type and mini type while the sale volume rose a little in the light truck market. Especially, the heavy truck sales soared by 59.67 percent year on year, unfolding a "well blowout" in the truck market. Then what led to the significant jump in the truck market?
The reporter held that it owed to some reasons as below: firstly, strongly sustainable increase momentum of China's macro-economy; secondly, it is the second year of the Eleventh Five-Year Program in 2007. Such automobile markets like markets for construction and transportation kept their stable growth; thirdly, the Government gave priority to new rural construction, development of science, education, culture and sanitation, social security, energy saving, ecological construction, environment protection and the Development of Western China as well as the comprehensively open policy for domestic financial community, which stimulated consumers' demands in truck market; finally, the Policy of Count Weight and Charge was put forward to be in effect in the first quarter and China ?��ission Regulation will be carried out later, which stimulated consumers' demands for medium and heavy trucks and promoted the "well blowout" in the truck market.
Statistics showed that there appeared a "blowout" in the heavy truck market with a growth rate of 59.67 percent during the first quarter. Such a market profited from the respective higher growth margins of 42.80 percent in ordinary truck market and 28.41 percent in incomplete vehicle market, but it profited mainly from the sharp growth margin of 132.09 percent in the semi-trailer tractor market. Among highway transport vehicles, the transportation efficiency of semi-trailer tractors is several tenths higher than that of ordinary trucks while the oil consumption of semi-trailer tractors is quite much lower; the weight of a semi-trailer tractor is 1 to 3 tons lighter than an ordinary truck with the same size, which means a semi-trailer tractor can be loaded with 1 to 3 tons more goods than an ordinary truck.

Undoubtedly, the implementation of such a policy as weight-based toll charges has directly stimulated the demands for semi-trailer tractors in the market to increase by a large margin.

The medium-sized truck market also embraced a hot sale. The sales volume in the medium-sized truck market increased by 22.07 percent in the first quarter, and such a growth rate is a new record in the recent 6 years. Such a great growth margin in the medium-sized truck market was largely attributed to the boosting effect of China III Emission Regulation to be implemented. This regulation will be carried out on July 1, so most domestic enterprises sold their medium-sized trucks at a low price at the end of the first half of 2007; thus, a rapid growth for demands for medium-sized trucks in the market has been resulted in.

As far as subdivided markets for various trucks are concerned, the growth rate for the sales volume of light trucks, which only amounted to 8.61 percent, is the lowest. It is far lower than the overall growth rate of 21.12 percent. The China III Emission Regulation had been put into practice in major cities including Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou since last year, which had great impact on the distribution of those light truck brands that can only meet the requirements of China I-II Emission Regulation in the market during the first quarter this year. It was reported that in general, non-mainstream manufacturers of light trucks had run into troubles in terms of the distribution of their products but such brands as IVECO of Nanjing Automobile??Group?? Corporation, Shuailing of Jianghuai Automobile Company, Ollin Chaoyue of Futon Motor Co., Ltd and ISUZU 600P of Qingling Motor (Group) Co, Ltd. were excluded. In addition, given that such raw materials as iron ore and steel materials appreciated, the profit margins for downstream manufacturing had been squeezed continually; the light truck industry, which did not harvest abundant profits, became faced with enormous pressures due to costs. Many brands had to raise the prices of their light truck products, which affected the demands in the light truck market as a whole.
The performance of mini trucks was quite eye-catching. The growth rate in the mini truck market reached 29.57 percent, exceeding the annual growth rate of 24.72 percent in 2006. With a view on the mini truck market, mini trucks have accelerated their paces to replace agricultural vehicles as China's rural investment increased more quickly in the first quarter and the rural economy continued to heat up. Meanwhile, along with the process and technology of mini trucks gradually moved closer to those for light trucks, the safety, comfort, reliability, economic and load capacity of mini trucks increased significantly, thus some light trucks with a low tonnage have been replaced. Also, various mini truck manufacturers transferred service systems of heavy and light trucks into the field of mini trucks, thus enhancing the service level for mini trucks greatly. Finally, the full implementation of China's policy on allowing mini trucks to operate in cities also played a positive role in the distribution of mini trucks. Subject to the above factors, mini trucks remained to be one of the hot cakes in the short-haul transport market in big cities and in the market at the metropolitan fringe during the first quarter.

Driving Further Into China

by Lara L. Sowinski
September 1, 2007

In recent months, a number of major U.S. transportation and logistics companies have launched new services in China as a way to move up the supply chain and take control of freight at the manufacturing facility, rather than at the foreign port or U.S. gateway. The opportunities are lucrative, but the road isn’t always easy going, warn the experts. China’s transportation and logistics sectors, particularly the ground transportation segment, are highly fragmented and rules and regulations are constantly changing. The payoff is sweet, however, for both U.S. shipping companies and their customers.


Market openings pave the way

Prior to 2005, U.S. firms were required to establish a joint venture with a Chinese company to operate in the country’s transportation and logistics market. The country’s membership in the WTO in 2002, combined with market opening reforms and increasing manufacturing and sourcing activity has fueled the expansion of U.S. firms in China these past few years.

Schneider National one of North America’s largest trucking and logistics companies, opened its first office in Shanghai in 2005. Earlier this year, it became the first U.S. trucking firm to receive operating authority in China, where it now does business as Schneider Logistics (Tianjin) Co. Ltd., providing domestic transportation, warehousing, cross-docking, third-party logistics and other services. Schneider intends to expand its presence in China, say company executives, and is prepared to spend “tens of millions” of dollars on acquisitions and organic growth.

“We see this as a great opportunity for customers in China, whether they be foreign-invested companies or Chinese-based businesses,” remarked Martin Winchell, managing director of Schneider Logistics China. “We will now be able to help customers build out their intra-China network and grow their business in the various provinces.”

It’s estimated that China has close to 2 million trucking companies with an average of 1.2 trucks each. The market is also dominated by LTL, but the truckload market is growing rapidly as the country continues to develop its highway infrastructure as part of its 11th Five-Year Plan (see sidebar). Schneider hopes to unveil its truckload service in China before year’s end.

YRC Worldwide planted its stake in China in 2005 too, with the formation of a transportation joint venture with JHJ International Transportation Co., the second largest air freight forwarder in China.

In June, YRC Worldwide announced that it has entered into a preliminary agreement to acquire Shanghai Jiayu Logistics Limited, one of the largest providers of LTL ground transportation services in China, with over 30,000 customers, 1,600 employees, 300 tractors and a network of over 3,000 vehicles.

As it turns out, the China market could really help U.S. transportation and logistics firms with a presence there as both China-U.S. and intra-China trade keep on heating up. And, spending on logistics and transportation now accounts for 18 to 20 percent of China’s gross domestic product, compared to 8 to 10 percent in the U.S. That means trillions

Post China's heavy truck sales up 65.4 % in january to october 07

Shanghai. December 7 (Gasgoo.com) –In the first ten months of this year, China's heavy truck sales surged 65.40 percent to 412,657 units while total production went up 68.84 percent to 416,343 units, according to the latest report prepared by China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAC).

In October, China's heavy-duty truck sales reached 37,800, down 6.20 percent month-on-month and sales reached 35,700 units, down 4.29 percent month-on-month, the CAAC report said.

In the first 10 months, sales of 32-ton or even heavier trucks soared 265.62 percent to 1,700 units, while sales of 26-32 ton heavy trucks went up 109.62 percent to 27,100 units and sales of 19-26 ton trucks reached 37,100 units.

In addition, sales of incomplete light trucks increased by 39.84 percent year on year to 184,400 units in the first ten months; semi-trailer truck sales surged 107.37 percent to 150,600 units.

The top six sellers were FAW(83,500 units), Dongfeng (73,000), Beiqi Foton(28,000), Shanxi Automobile(49,900), SAIC-Iveco(20,900) and Beijing Benz(13,700), of which Beiqi Foton and Shanxi Automobile increased their sales by 120.17 percent and 87.55 percent respectively.

"China's economic growth and fixed-asset investments are a driving force behind heavy-truck sales," said Zhang Yupu, Chairman of the Board of Shaanxi Automobile Group. "But the growth is going to slow down in the next one or a half years,'' he added.

China to implement EU-III standards on new heavy trucks.

Quote:
December 27, 2007 —China will implement EU-III standards on heavy trucks as of January 1, 2008, according to regulations jointly released by China’s State Environmental Protection Agency and General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

Under the new regulation, new heavy trucks are not allowed to sell at the Chinese market if they cannot meet EU-III emission standards.

China’s National III standard, which is very similar to EU III standard, requires a 30%-50% reduction of tailpipe emission from the EU-II standards.

"The mandatory EU-III standards will make raise heavy truck prices by 10%-15%,” said Guo Huanan, spokesman of Sinotruck, China's largest heavy truck manufacturer.  

Most heavy truck vehicles currently in use are unable to meet this standard, said Ba Yingfeng, sales manager of Shanghai Huizhong Automotive Manufacturing Co.,Ltd. “To meet this standard, our production costs will go up RMB 20,000-30,000 for each vehicle.”

To meet the new standard, domestic manufactures have to upgrade the mechanical engines, which in currently use for most heavy truck makers, into the advanced electronic control engines. At the same time, gas stations should be upgrade to provide III-standard oil.

FAW, Dongfeng Motor and Sinotruck, the Big Three in China’s heavy truck industry, have launched a series of heavy truck models.Sinotruck's "Golden Prince” has satisfied EU-III standards. Shaanxi Heavy Truck, has developed EU-III standard WP10N and WP12N engines that are equipped in vehicles made by the automaker. Other truckers, Beiqi Foton and Chongqing Heavy Truck are seeking foreign partners to develop engines that can meet EU-III standards.

Industry experts laid out some barriers for the implementation of EU-III standards in China’s heavy truck market. First, few models produced by domestic truck makers can meet this standard; second, EU II-standard fuel, which is current in use in most gas stations, could damage the new engines. In addition, maintenances of III-standard heavy trucks are not available in most repair shops.
