Business Monitor International's Kuwait Freight Transport Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, freight transportation associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Kuwait's freight transportation industry.

Kuwait's ports have struggled to recover the volumes they enjoyed prior to the global economic downturn, but BMI expects this largely to be achieved in 2012, with only total tonnage throughput at Shuaiba not forecast to recoup lost levels until 2013. BMI forecast slow but steady growth in volumes at Kuwait International Airport, though with a determination to make Kuwait Airways a viable company once more, this could rise. If there are continued instances of industrial unrest and strikes, however, as Kuwait's ports and airports saw towards the end of 2011, then BMI may have to revise their forecasts down. Kuwait's crude oil export facilities will continue to be busy in 2012. A pick up in demand as the US restocks inventories should boost throughputs, though there is the risk that another economic crisis could halt growth in Western oil demand once again.
