Maritime Industry Statistics

What is this kind of industry? When you think about transportation, trucking might come to mind, or, if overseas services are needs, you may begin to picture. Shipping by boat seems like a fairly old-fashioned method, and it’s tempting to wonder if. This is even a large industry anymore. However, the numbers are staggering. approximately 1.2 million personnel employed according to the Maritime Industry Foundation’s Knowledge Center.

This doesn’t take into account all of the employees working in related maritime jobs on shore, such as those in the Navy or those working at docks. This course is one of the booming job in maritime industry, and it is still much less expensive that travel or transport by plane. The MIKC also reports that 90% of the world’s trade is done by ship. How’s that for an "old fashioned" industry? The maritime world is not dead.
