Analysis of the car carrier market

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

 

Overview

Drewry’s most recent Car Carriers report looks at the vehicle manufacturing industry and how the Car Carrier sector has developed and how it must continue to do so in the future.

The Car Carrier sector did not suffer as much at the hands of the global economic downturn as other sectors, but its future is uncertain due to the ever increasing movement of manufacturing to Asia.

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.
