“The wheels came off the liner industry in 2008 as the global credit crunch, which had started in the US sub-prime mortgage market in the summer of 2007, spread to other business sectors and depressed world trade.”

So says John Fossey, editorial director of Containerisation International, in the opening chapter of the newly published Containerisation International Yearbook 2009. “In sharp contrast to 2007, the number of carriers/owners ordering new tonnage in 2008 slowed to a trickle as the year progressed,” he added.

Now in its 40th year, the Containerisation International Yearbook is' a leading source of container industry intelligence and data. The information is broken down into easy-to-use sections including: Ports and terminals; services; equipment; container leasing; container repair; a register of container-carrying vessels, and much more.

Data for the 2009 edition have been fully revised and updated to provide accurate information and full contact details for the global container shipping and transport industry. Included are complete contact details for over 4,600 companies, owner and operator details for 9,465 container carrying vessels, a listing of over 600 ports and 760 terminals worldwide with full contact details, port and terminal container facilities, equipment and annual throughputs, and details of over 2,193 operators on 177 principal trade routes.

Data in the latest edition shows an operational containership fleet of 9,430 vessels amounting to 14.1M TEU as of November 2008, a slot capacity increase of 12.9% on the previous year, a total orderbook of 6.5M TEU (1,439 vessels), a 5.4% increase on the previous year and a total container throughput in 2007 of 480.9M TEU globally (up 11 % from 2006 figures) As well as providing essential industry data, the 2009 edition also features five editorial reviews, giving an insight into changes within the industry in 2008 and looking forward to 2009. These include: • An overview of the recent developments in liner shipping.

• Analysis of the world containership fleet and orderbook.

• Latest port and national container throughput rankings.

• Trends in container manufacturing worldwide.

• Developments in the container leasing industry.

Included in the 2009 edition is a CD Rom for portability and easy access to all the data in the Yearbook, which is also available in PDF form. Priced at £365, €540 or US$725 including postage, Containerisation International Yearbook 2009 is available from: Email: Telephone: +44 (0)20 3377 3204.
