The report also labels APM-Maersk, Mediterranean Shg Co., CMA CGM Group, COSCO Container Lines, and Evergreen Line as the top global suppliers in the market.The global sea logistics supply market is fragmented, as there are many regional players. However, major clients (typically Fortune 500 companies) prefer engaging with larger global suppliers as they have expertise in managing different kinds of sea cargo and can minimize risks of damage and loss. APM Maersk and Mediterranean Shg Co. are the top global suppliers that offer a wide range of services and together they accounted for 28% of the global market share (in 2015) in terms of TEU.Angad Singh, a category specialist at Technavio, says, “Global demand for dry bulk shipping accounted for a major portion of the overall market spend. By 2017, the demand for this segment is expected to account for more than 50% of the total spend. This can be attributed to the decline in service prices resulting from the decrease in bunker fuel costs, relaxation of global regulatory compliances, and economies of scale procured by such shipments.”Request a sample report: report segments the global sea logistics market into the following key regions:EMEAAPACAmericasEMEA: most major suppliers have a strong foothold in this marketIn EMEA, the supply market of sea logistics is highly fragmented, with many regional players competing with global suppliers.
