Reefer shipping report

London, UK: Drewry Maritime Research’s has published its latest report on the reefer shipping market.

The report, Reefer Shipping Market Annual Review and Forecast 2012/13, looks at the state of the Reefer market providing a range of forecasts up to 2016 covering:

  • Worldwide perishable reefer cargo volumes
  • Seaborne perishable reefer cargo volumes
  • Reefer cargo modal split
  • Fleet orderbooks

“The specialised reefer fleet continues its inexorable decline with the orderbook currently empty for the specialised reefer fleet. In contrast to this over 500 containerships are yet to be delivered. The two fleets are moving in opposite directions and it is impossible to see this changing significantly, however survival in the specialised reefer industry appears to be achievable for the moment, based on its distinct advantages, expertise and service,” Drewry says.
