LONDON – The companies operating in the shipping and logistics industry are engaged in providing deep sea, coastal and inland water transport. Deep sea and coastal water transport includes both the scheduled and unscheduled transportation of passengers and freight over water; whereas the inland water transport segment includes the movement of passenger or freight via rivers, canals, lakes and waterways, including inside harbors and docks.

The global shipping and logistics industry has spent the last two years at a major crossroads, where years of rapid growth appeared to be at an end, and future demand is contingent on ongoing economic recovery. Total real revenue in the global containerized shipping and logistics industry is estimated to increase to USD 159 billion by the end of 2012, which represents a 1.0% increase on an annualized basis, with 3.4% growth expected for the current year.
