SeaIntel: Atlantic container shipping will benefit from free trade agreement

The free trade agreement currently being discussed between the United States and the EU could result in a massive increase in container transport across the Atlantic, says SeaIntel in a new analysis.

Should the United States and the EU reach a new free trade agreement, the result would be more trade, and thus an increased container transport across the Atlantic.

SeaIntel has constructed an analysis model for the development of the trade, which shows that, at a conservative growth estimate, the free trade agreement would result in a 11,000 teu per year increase of container transport between the two continents. If the estimate is set at more optimistic level, the model shows that an additional 480,000 containers would cross the Atlantic every year.
