Top 40 Container Carriers
2015 was a roller-coaster for ocean container carriers operating in the U.S. trades, and it wasn’t just because of record low freight rates.
In the aftermath of the West Coast labor debacle — and all the cross-border diversions, air cargo routing and alternative sourcing remedies that came with it — ocean carrier results for 2015 were mixed, with 19 of the JOC Top 40 ship lines moving goods in the U.S. trades posting volume declines. Separately, 21 of the JOC Top 40 U.S. export container carriers and 15 of the JOC Top 40 U.S. import container carriers posted declines in volume.
