Why are ships and cargo containers so big? Read more
Here’s the thing, I’m not a cargo forwarder.
It’s an industry that thrives on high volumes of containers, and shipping container ships like the Freight Forwarder, the West Coast Container Co. and the Port of New Orleans are all huge.
That means they can hold up to 1.5 million tons of cargo.
And while that’s impressive, it’s still only about a third of the amount of cargo the United States actually carries.
So the bigger the container ships are, the more cargo they can ship.
And that means that the volume of cargo that they can carry increases, and the more it costs to ship.
“If the world’s economy is going to grow, the world needs a strong and growing economy,” says Dan Schoen, vice president of global logistics at the trade group International Container Shipping Association.
“It’s not a question of cargo forwarders, but the amount they can do.
So you need to have that, and you need the capacity to move that cargo.”
The container ship industry is a global industry, and in recent years the shipping container market has been on a tear.
But the U.S. is still lagging behind.
“The shipping industry has been booming in the U.” said Paul Sorkin, a professor of global business at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
“But the United Kingdom has been taking that same boom to a new level.”
The United States has a huge market for container ships, with more than 300 vessels that can carry as much as 10,000 tons.
But in the past year, the United Nations has warned that the shipping industry is losing out on nearly $10 billion in trade and has warned against any new rules for container shipping.
The trade group says that the current rules are too burdensome on shipping companies, and that the rules would limit competition.
“I think the rules are overly restrictive,” says Robert Pomeranz, director of global shipping at the UN.
“We see a lot of these regulations as a response to the container market, which is really growing and expanding.”
In addition to its high shipping volumes, the U:s container shipping market is a major exporter of food and raw materials, including beef, pork and eggs.
The shipping container industry employs tens of thousands of people in the United State, which also accounts for more than $5 trillion of U.s GDP.
And those jobs pay well.
A report from the Institute for Supply Management found that shipping container jobs pay an average of $47,800 a year.
And as cargo containers have grown, they’ve become more efficient.
The FreightForwarder, a U.K.-based container ship company, ships containers to ports around the world, with ships typically taking 10 to 12 days to reach their destination.
So it’s a big trade and shipping business, and it’s been growing for years.
But it’s not sustainable.
“A lot of people are worried that the container industry is going through a period of crisis,” says Schoen.
“They’re concerned that the cost of shipping container is going up, that containers are going to get heavier, that the prices are going up.
And a lot are worried about whether that’s going to be sustainable in the long run.
“There’s nothing like it.””
This is the greatest thing that has ever happened to the shipping business,” he adds.
“There’s nothing like it.”
