ANATOMY OF A SHIPPING CRISIS – 2004-2017
Special Report – Anatomy of a Shipping Crisis – 2004-2017
Having covered the daily shipping markets for nearly three decades, BMTI is uniquely qualified to observe the ups and downs of the maritime business. The shipping boom-and-bust of the early 2000s is a dramatic chapter in the world economy, with China’s massive contribution fuelling a bubble in shipping that paralleled the rise and fall of the global economy from 2004 until now.
Drawn from our reports on broking, economic trends and freight trends in dry cargo, container and short sea shipping, BMTI has captured these last twelve years of tumult in its new special report, on 147 pages
“Anatomy of a Shipping Crisis”…a time capsule of twelve-year period the likes of which will never be seen again.
