American freight has been the biggest beneficiary of the global boom in container shipping.
Its share of global freight shipments jumped to 1.6% last year from 0.8% in 2014, according to the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
Its growth is set to accelerate this year.
American cargo ships are expected to take in more than $100bn in global cargo by 2020.
But the US still has the world’s largest fleet of container ships, with more than 11,000 ships.
The number of containers shipping globally increased by 7.5% last quarter, according the International Container Maritime Partnership (ICMP).
This growth comes despite a sharp fall in international trade, the world economy’s third-largest.
A record number of container shipments were carried by American carriers last year, up more than 30% from 2015, according IMO figures.
But American carriers have struggled to keep up with the volume of international trade that they need to handle.
“Our market share in the container market has shrunk by over 20% over the last few years, and we are losing market share to many other countries,” said James A. Anderson, senior vice president of maritime and cargo services at FedEx Corp. “This has created challenges for our business and it has caused us to make decisions that have made our ships less competitive.
The container market is growing but our business is slowing down.”
The US container market also is becoming less competitive because the demand for shipping containers from other countries is rising.
This has contributed to a decline in container ships’ volume.
The US has one of the largest container fleets in the world, with 6,973 ships carrying cargo, according ICMP.
This growth has led to an erosion of US dominance in the global container market.
The United States has been among the world leaders in container shipments, with US shipping volumes growing by 10% from 2013 to 2014.
But its share of container volume has declined by more than 15% in the last four years, according US Shipping Federation data.
US freight volumes fell by a further 13% in 2015.
In 2016, US freight shipped to the European Union fell by more as more international shipping companies left the country.
It was the third straight year of decline for freight volumes, according TOEFL.
“The global economic slowdown is putting pressure on freight volumes in the US, as we have to keep pace with growing volumes of imports and exports,” said Steve Dallaire, director of research and analytics at the International Freight Transportation Association.
“But there is still an opportunity to grow shipments in the future and we can do it by investing in technology and logistics to reduce the risk of ship disruption.”
The biggest container ship, the North American container ship Costa Concordia, has been forced to halt its cargo ship service in the United States due to safety concerns.
A series of disasters have forced the Costa Concordias to return to the United Kingdom.
This was the first time the ship had ever been allowed to travel between the two countries.
“It’s a huge loss for the Costa Conteys,” said Dan Goggin, chief executive of shipping firm CIM Group.
“They’ve been a big player in the international container market for the last 40 years.
They’re a very resilient company.
They’ve survived every single one of those disasters and have recovered.
The Costa Conçes are a global leader and will thrive in the years ahead.” “
In the long run, the ship’s safety will be more important than the shipping itself.
The Costa Conçes are a global leader and will thrive in the years ahead.”
American container ships have been shipping a record-breaking amount of cargo for more than a decade.
They accounted for more of the world container volume in 2015, compared to a year earlier.
“When the economic recovery began in 2015 and 2016, the number of US container ships grew by almost 30%, but it dropped by almost 20% in 2016,” said Kevin Tumel, chief operating officer of the US shipping consultancy CBRE.
“There is an opportunity for us to have more volume and more containers going through the ports.
That will allow us to move more goods through the port system and will help us attract more customers.”
