Maritime transport for sustainable development: Key insights and projections from Review of Maritime Transport

Maritime transport is the backbone of international trade and the global economy. Over 80 per cent of the volume of international trade in goods is carried by sea, and the percentage is even higher for most developing countries.

The Review of Maritime Transport is published annually since 1968.  The report provides an analysis of structural and cyclical changes affecting seaborne trade, ports and shipping, as well as statistics on maritime trade and transport.

This year’s edition has a particular focus on resilience-building in the face of the supply chain crisis and a chapter devoted to issues associated with the process of consolidation in container shipping.

With regard to post-pandemic recovery, during this course, the findings in the report will be presented, to provide an update on the latest key developments with regard to seaborne trade, maritime and port business, freight rates, key performance indicators, seafarers’ concerns and trade facilitation, among other aspects.

Delegates will have the opportunity to engage on a range of issues, from freight rates to supply chains and prices, and the impact they may generate on economic development, particularly in developing countries, which face more challenges than other economies.

The course will also serve to illustrate the links between maritime transport and the Sustainable Development Goals.
