The Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics offers its customers around the world a unique data service and data-based market knowledge. The experts in the Maritime Intelligence competence field publish annual statistics on the most important submarkets of the maritime industry (dry bulk, liquid bulk, container, general cargo and passenger traffic) as a compact yearbook. This publication offers a broad overview with time series on world trade, seaborne trade, commodity markets and prices, ocean freight and charter rates, shipping and shipbuilding countries, world merchant fleet and orderbook as well as detailed data on cargo handling of more than 400 major seaports around the world. In order to reflect a picture as comprehensive as possible, a large number of international sources of information were evaluated in addition to ISL's own port database.
The yearbook, now in its 41st edition, has long since established itself as an internationally recognised statistical standard work for ship owners, shipyards, ports, shipping companies, banks, consultants, insurance companies and universities.
The Shipping Statistics Yearbook 2018 (432 pages with 506 tables and 128 figures) can be ordered via our webshop.
