Revenue for the Stevedoring and Marine Cargo Handling industry is expected to increase due to high trade volumes and increasing oil prices. Higher oil prices have influenced customers to choose water transport over other, more expensive freight transport alternatives. These trends, coupled with lower employment costs, have helped boost profit and revenue over the past five years.
Companies in this industry provide stevedoring and other marine cargo handling services, except warehousing. A stevedore is a company or individual, usually contracted by an agent, to load and unload cargo from a ship in port.
