Ocean Freight Forwarders
Transport firms in the ro-ro shipping business will be interested in the latest news concerning the future forecasts for the supply and demand equation between the volume of cargo that needs to be transported to destination on time and budget and the available ship capacity to move the cargo. Alphaliner has indicated that supply could outpace a decreasing demand for transport services during the weeks and months ahead in 2011 as the supply of new container ships stays ahead of the demand for the services international freight companies provide. Alphaliner expects the global container ship fleet to increase by an annual rate of almost 9 percent during the next two years, according to the report, with about 2.5 million TEUs in new container ships arriving during this time.

Alphaliner indicated that the number of new container ships arriving in 2010 and 2011 is below the annual average of 1.37 million TEUs of new container ships that arrived between 2006-2008 and that the totals are of concern that will have to be watched as we go forward. That a lot of the new ship capacity added during these years was quickly absorbed by the demand for jobs like overseas auto shipping and other transport tasks during the recent global recovery period experienced, and that demand for cargo transport services is expected to decrease significantly in 2011. Alphaliner also indicated that business in the world's five largest container ports slowed to about 8 percent in the last three months of 2010, down significantly from the 18 percent recorded during the first three quarters of 2010.

Ocean Freight Companies, Stopping at Port of Charleston
International transport companies in the ro-ro shipping business will be interested in the latest news concerning container transport volumes moving through the American port of Charleston during the last few months. The volume of containers moving through the Port of Charleston during the past few months was pretty good, but according to the latest results the volume of containers moving through this port is starting to decrease as the peak season for container transport nears the end. The volume of containers moving through the Port of Charleston increased by 12.6 percent in relation to the volumes seen during the same month last year, according to the South Carolina State Port Authority. Great news for the business of car shipping overseas and the transport industry of the United States in general.

Reports from the port authority indicate that the Port of Charleston moved about 16 percent more cargo containers through the port in 2010, in relation to the volume shipped through the port last year. They also indicated that container movements on the whole through the Port of Charleston were also up by about 17.5 percent during the first 11 months of 2010, and about 15.2 percent during the most recent five months. An increase that is likely due to a recovering world economy and new ocean carrier services that have been added to the available transport services at the port during the time in question, according to international auto shipping workers and transport experts watching this news unfold at the Port of Charleston during 2010.

This news is leading many transport industry experts and firms to predict a better year for container transport in 2011, something that we all hope is going to become true as we enter into the second decade of the century of the environment in the world. Hopefully, this belief become a fact during the next few months and during the up coming year, and leads to even greater gains in container movements through the Port of Charleston and all American ports.
