Part 3 – Container reefer shipping
This section provides insight into the main containerised reefer routes and services, invariably part of the South-North trade structure. Compared to previous versions of this publication, coverage has been expanded by even more trading areas. Furthermore, this section comprises:
• Extensive overviews and statistics on the composition and development of the container vessel fleet and orderbook, reefer TEU capacity, plugs/capacity ratios by size category;
• Refrigerated container box fleet, size categories, production data, capacity by carrier;
• Structured profiles of the world’s 10 largest reefer container carriers.
This publication uses the most recent trade statistics (up to 2020) on reefer commodities by country and area, supplemented with up-to-date port, vessel, box and carrier fleet statistics and gives a profound insight into the background, characteristics, developments and present status of the worldwide shipping market of perishables and the relevant players.
All information for the report has been collected, researched and processed in the third and fourth quarters of 2021. As sources often differ on the same topics, we have endeavoured to provide the reader with the most accurate estimates. Analyses are based on the best available professional databases and media, complete with data originating from carriers, operators, port authorities and a great many other industry players.
