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.
