No time to sit back, a rapidly evolving and dynamic market means car carrier operators need to stay focused.

Chapters within the report include:

  • Global vehicle manufacturing and sales
  • Global seaborne vehicle trade
  • High & heavy
  • The car carrier fleet
  • Automotive logistics
  • Ports and terminals


This report provides a comprehensive view of the industry from a single source, utilising Drewry’s experience to help inform and guide your decision making.
