One Hundred Ports 2018

 

 

 

Following two years of moderate volume increases across the container port’s premier league, 2017 saw a firm return to the growth path.


The 2018 edition of Lloyd’s List’s One Hundred Container Ports shows that the industry’s elite port facilities handled a combined 588m teu in 2017, representing healthy 6% volume growth on the previous year.


Chinese dominance was cemented as its resurgent economy drove cargo numbers through its major ports, including Shanghai, holding onto its number one crown for a thirteenth consecutive year.


A strong showing from emerging markets in south and southeast Asia, North America and South America helped support China’s throughput gains, whilst offsetting fairly mixed results elsewhere.


But the overall take for 2017 was one of prosperity for the container port sector despite the risks and challenges that remain.

Challenges of container line consolidation

James Baker

Container terminals live and die by their client container lines, so the health of the carriers will be of major concern to box ports

More of the same?

Linton Nightingale


Volumes at the halfway stage of 2018 point to another prosperous year for container ports, but uncertainties risk destabilising positive trade sentiment
