In 2014, global full TEU volumes increased by 4.0% yearonyear to 135.4 million TEU as per Container Trades Statistics (*). While intercontinental trade rose by a decent 3.4%, intraregional volumes were up by even more at 5.4% to 30.4 million TEU.

Europe
2014 TEU volumes carried to and from Europe (including all countries bordering the Mediterranean) and between European countries increased by 5.4% to 46.9 million TEU, according to CTS. Imports grew faster than exports: by 5.7% and 4.5%, respectively, while regional trade (excluding feeder boxes) was 7.3% higher.

Exports from Europe increased on all routes, except for Latin America. Trade to North America has certainly benefited from the depreciation of the Euro against the US dollar, leading to a growth of 9.6%. Trade to the Middle East/ISC was also substantially higher at 9.1%. Exports to the Far East, the biggest chunk, were just 1.3% higher.

Containerised imports into Europe were higher, this particularly due to a high 7.4% rise of Far East imports and a significant trade increase with the Middle East/ISC. With the lower value of the Euro, European citizens apparently decided to buy fewer products made in the US, leading to a drop of 1.2%.

(*) Analyses based on data sourced from CTS (Container Trades Statistics), reflecting endtoend data; feeder containers are NOT included in the above statistics, which coverall intercontinental deepsea routes and around 85% of the worldwide full container trade.
