Stevedoring & Marine Cargo Handling in the US

International imports and exports account for the overwhelming majority of waterborne cargo transport and, as a result, industry performance closely mirrors US trade volumes. Following a notable recessionary contraction, trade volumes have rebounded, which has increased demand for cargo loading and inspection services provided by this industry. Revenue is consequently projected to rise during the five years to 2015. The five years to 2020 are expected to be smooth sailing for the industry, as rising trade volumes bolster demand for marine cargo handling and increase revenue.

Companies in this industry provide stevedoring and other marine cargo handling services, except warehousing. A stevedore is a company or individual that is usually contracted by an agent to load and unload cargo from a ship in port.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
