This report provides a concise update of key data relating to the maritime transport sector, spanning demand and supply, performance, as well as transversal issues ranging from regulatory and legal developments affecting maritime transport and technological developments/innovation, with the theme being “Sustainable Shipping”.

The Review provides an analysis of structural and cyclical changes affecting seaborne trade, ports and shipping, as well as an extensive collection of statistical information.
