NVOCC Share of U.S. Maritime Imports Edges Past 39 Percent

Category: Imports, Transport

Free report from Descartes Datamyne ranks top 20 NVOCCs by import TEUs in first half 2017, reveals gains in volumes, NVOCC share of U.S. import market.

We’ve been tracking the NVOCC share of U.S. maritime imports as an indicator of shippers’ use of logistics services providers. Our U.S. import bill of lading data through June 2017 shows that oceangoing transport for 39.2% of imports by volume was booked by non-vessel owning common carriers (NVOCCs) rather than directly with ship lines.

As of year-end 2016, the NVOCC share of U.S. imports, measured in TEUs (20-foot equivalent units), stood at 38.8%. The first half’s growth in share is fractional, to be sure; however, it continues a nearly uninterrupted climb from a 26.5% share a decade ago.

The data also shows U.S. import TEUs in the first half were up 5.12% compared with a year ago. TEUs booked by NVOCCs gained 7.95%.

The top ranked NVOCCs by volume were, in order, Blue Anchor Line, Kuehne + Nagel’s in-house NVOCC; Expeditors International of Washington; and Christal Lines, C.H. Robinson’s NVOCC division.

The Descartes Datamyne quarterly reports ranks the top 20 NVOCCs by TEUs and breaks out each NVOCC’s TEUs by the top three carriers: MSC-Mediterranean, Maersk and Evergreen Lines. Click here to download the first-half 2017 report.
