Already at the end of March MC Marketing Consulting provided a market report ordered by EVD, the national Dutch service agency for foreign trade (EVD). The report is dedicated to the topical situation in the German shipping sector and was confirmed by the client in the meantime. Only at a later time it is decided on the publication.
Germany belongs to the most important and successful shipping nations worldwide. By about 3,500 ships the German merchant fleet comes second place worldwide, with container ships even place one.
The branch report compiled by order of the Dutch EVD contains a short analysis of the German shipping sector. Beside the present economic situation the sector is described in detail. This representation is complemented with an overview about the most important international and national legal regulations. A data base is created in addition covering the most important German shipowners and their fleet structure.
