This newsletter covers six ports in the northwest European range of Le Havre toHamburg. This newsletter expands on its sister publication for North America which has become the monthly benchmark of short-term trade developments in 12 ports. The North Europe newsletter breaks new ground by providing monthly and quarterly projections for imports, exports and empty container moves in TEU format.
It also provides additional levels of aggregation by providing a pan-European quarterly projection for imports and exports as well as similar projections for North Europe and the Mediterranean-Black Sea region. These provide a ready benchmark to assess the activities of the six initial ports in our newsletter.
The data for the six ports includes all traffic, including transshipment and short sea and reflects container moves.
