THE STATE OF CONTAINERIZATION, PART II: CONTAINERIZATION AND CONTAINERIZABLE CARGO

This survey of containerized commodities is the result of a worldwide poll of ports. Originally it was expected to list all ports which appeared in the first part of the study but statistical systems appear to lag behind the technology of modern cargo transport itself. Quite a number of ports have no figures on container traffic at all; others again are directing their statistical research in such a way that it was not possible to arrive, in their specific instances, at a result that would have been meaningful. The purpose is to show what commodities can be containerized, and how much of each commodity is in fact containerized. There was more success with the first point, and the list of containerzied, and therefore containerizable commodities comprises an impressive total of 298 commodity titles. However, in a number of cases is was not possible to ascertain the actual containerization percentages.
