This article focuses on the state of the U.S.-Europe or trans-Atlantic shipping. It explains that unlike the trans-Pacific or U.S.-Asia shipping, the trans-Atlantic remained stable in 2008 with only 1.2% decline in container volume compared to the 3.9% decline in container volume in trans-Pacific shipping. Trans-Atlantic's rates have also softened in 2008 but remained stable. Also presented are data and statistics on trans-Atlantic shipping such as the volume of containerized exports through North Europe ports.
