Detailed Study Of

World Reefer Shipping

In their recent report, "Reefer

Shipping - Global Prospects For

Refrigerated Cargo Shipping And

Trade To 2005," Drewry Shipping

Consultants Ltd., London, seeks to provide cargo owners and ship operators with highly detailed and organized data that identifies mar- ket trends in refrigerated cargo to the year 2005.

To explain why there can often be wide variations in revenues during the trading year, "Reefer Shipping" evaluates such factors as: break- bulk, palletized and container shipping; liner versus non-liner; high and low-volume months and sea- sons; and frozen and, chilled cargo.

Up-to-date profiles on the dozen major refrigerated cargo players are also provided. Drewry states that they have provided detailed infor- mation describing the current fleets, spheres of operation and market roles for the Americans, British,

Danish, Dutch, German, Greek,

Japanese, South African and Swed- ish reefer shipping interests.
