Maersk sees slight pickup in container traffic next year

Shipping group A.P. Moller-Maersk has made the statement that expected 2020 growth in global seaborne container traffic to be slightly higher than this year, although an ongoing trade war would limit the chances of a faster pick-up in traffic.

Maersk, the world’s biggest container shipper, said it expected global container demand to grow by 1-3% in 2020 compared with 1-2% this year.

Reuters.com reported on the company giving out a statement saying: “The continued weakening of global sentiment, above all in the manufacturing sector, reduces the likelihood of a growth pick-up in 2020.”
