Intra-Mediterranean Container Trades

Date: 13/11/2014

Dynamar has published “INTRA-MEDITERRANEAN CONTAINER TRADES”, the latest report in its Container Trades and Markets series.

Dynamar forecasts the 2015 volume of the total Intra-Mediterranean full container trade (regional trade and feeder boxes) to reach 15.6 million TEU, up from 14.9 million TEU in 2013, and growing to 17.1 million TEU by 2017.

The total 2013 global throughput of 95 ports handling intra-Mediterranean container trade can be estimated at 56 million TEU. This constitutes a growth of some 5.5% over 2012.

Intra-Mediterranean shipping services calling ports in the European sector of the West Mediterranean provide an annual trade capacity of 2.9 million TEU.

The Adriatic, currently one of the smallest trade areas, is considered to offer a large potential for growth of intra-Mediterranean shipping volumes.

In terms of intra-Mediterranean connectivity, the Aegean sub-trade area is the numero uno with 275 trade connections (i.e. number of sailings per week). The Black Sea is at the bottom of this ranking with just 71.

Israel (2,539,000 TEU) and Lebanon (1,117,000 TEU) are both among the Mediterranean throughput country millionaires.

With 34 calls per week at eight of its ports, Algeria is the largest Maghreb country in terms of connectivity with other Mediterranean countries.

MSC is the largest intra-Mediterranean carrier by annualised one-way capacity (1.5 million TEU), ahead of CMA CGM (900,000 TEU). It also operates the longest intra-Med service, connecting four trade areas during a 4,900 nautical miles roundtrip.
