The international Shipping industry is important to the success of most of our cities, towns, and even countries. This industry is almost solely responsible for the success of many businesses around the world. International trade has changed the relationships that many countries share for the better.

To understand the importance of Shipping in our lives, we only need to look at the diverse types of goods we use every day. From the mouse to the computer screen, the shirt on your back and shoes on your feet to the fuel that powers our vehicles and factories around the world every day, what we now call basic necessities of modern life are brought to us by world trade. Some 90% of world trade is transported by sea. In 2006, seaborne trade reached over 30 trillion ton-miles (an increase of 49% compared to trade in 1996).

In recent years, the world has seen the centre of maritime gravity moving to Asia. Asian countries’ share of world seaborne trade increased to 39%5 in 2006 (compared with 31% in 1996) and where nearly half of the world’s merchant fleet is domiciled in Asia. 13 of the world’s top 20 ports are also located in Asia, handling around 36% of the world’s containers. Three of the world’s largest shipbuilding nations are in Asia accounting for 90% of global market share.

About 90% of world trade is carried by the international Shipping industry. Without Shipping, the import/export of affordable food and goods would not be possible - half the world would starve and the other half would freeze!
