Grasping the size of Container Traffic

The following infographic is shared courtesy of Visual Capitalist




  1. Thanks Mike. Do we know SA’s number? Panama is a big copper country. I imagine quite a lot of that is transported in containers. What would be interesting are stats such as number found overloaded, number used for bulk commodities, breakdown by container type, number being used for housing, number of shipper-owned versus carrier owned.

    1. Hi Chris, I believe South Africa sits between Panama and Australia. Glad you like the post. I will posting a similar graphic on container ports specifically, shortly. Take care, Mike
