The container shipping market is dynamic and constantly evolving with constant global news of container port and shipping issues and innovations, nationally and internationally.
The largest project by far is the Chinese investment in continental Eurasian rail freight to connect the new manufacturing locations in China and Asia with Europe. This practical initiative saves time on the much longer and slower sea route from the container ports on the East Coast and the long shipping route south around Indonesia and India back through the Suez.
However, there will remain the main choice of ships offering economies of scale and cost efficiencies, though the rail routes will offer a major time advantage for higher value goods or quicker delivery needs.
