FORECAST FOR TRADE ON US MARITIME ROUTES 7 AND 8

The likelihood and nature of possible changes in commerce on U.S. Maritime trade routes 7 and 8 (serving the North Atlantic ports of the United States and the North Sea ports of Belgium, the Netherlands, and the Federal Republic of Germany) in the coming 13 years are reported. Concern is with the commerce over these routes within rather broad classes of cargo, including: food; beverages and tobacco; inedible crude materials, except fuels; mineral fuels, lubricants, and related materials; animal and vegetable fats and oils; chemicals; manufactured goods classified chiefly by material; machinery and transport equipment; and miscellaneous manufactured articles. The demand for both U.S. exports and imports is reviewed, and graphs of trade by commodity groups are included. A statement of methodology of study is also presented, followed by an analysis of the limitations of the data. Appendices give tables summarizing results of analysis and data on which the analysis was based, and also a real gross national product projection to 1975.
