Dear valued customers,
Thank you for your continuous interest and unwavering support for solar shipping.
Over 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping industry. Thanks to the growing efficiency of shipping as a mode of transport and increased economic liberalization, the prospects for the industry’s further growth continue to be strong. It is difficult to quantify the value of volume of world seaborne trade in monetary terms, as figures for trade estimates are traditionally in terms of tones or ton-miles, and are therefore not comparable with monetary-based statistics for the value of the world economy.
However, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) estimates that the operation of merchant ships contributes about US$380 billion in freight rates within the global economy, equivalent to about 5% of total world trade. In 2006, world seaborne trade reached 7.4 billion tons. At the beginning of 2007, the world fleet reached 1.04 billion deadweight tons (dwt), an annual increase of 8.6 percent. World container port throughput increased by 13.4 percent to reach 440 million TEUs in 2006. (ref. Transport Newsletter No. 37, 2007
Our focus is on providing the connections and solutions that offer our customers delivery certainty in an increasingly complex trading landscape.
