The report summarizes trends in maritime freight movement since 1995, especially during the last five years. It also covers the impact of the recent U.S. and global economic downturn on container traffic; regional shifts in cargo handled, vessel calls, and port capacity; the rankings of U.S. ports among the world's top ports; and the number of maritime container entries into the United States compared to truck and rail containers. The report also includes summaries of landside access to container ports and maritime security initiatives.
