The shipping industry has become incredibly essential as we become more and more globalized. You as an individual can order clothes online from another country, and your order will show up at your home within a few weeks, possibly even days. A large company can receive produce from across the ocean to sell at their own stores. This is why you can buy bananas all year round even if you live in Colorado.
At any given moment, millions of tons of clothing, produce, electronics, and cars are crisscrossing the globe in a massive international trading network.
As we become more and more dependent on other nations, and they become more dependent on us and others, international freight shipping becomes a vital asset. In fact, roughly 90% of world trade is handled by the international shipping industry. While global trade is not a new phenomenon, these networks grow stronger everyday.
Here are some facts you might not have known about the shipping industry.
