By 2010, global sales of new private and commercial vehicles are expected to total 73 million units.

Car Carriers: The Fast Lane of International Shipping report predicts an increase in cross trade operations and a significant change to cargo origin with the emergence of China as a major supplier. Car carrier fleet Car Carriers: The Fast Lane of International Shipping details how the expected production and sales of vehicles will translate into orders for new car carriers. The report examines current figures for car carriers, predicting the capacity per ship to continue to increase from the current average of 4,073 ceu. Car carrier operators The report outlines the six major players in the deep-sea market and their regional service provision, part of the general trend towards the "one stop shop" or "total service logistics package" which each operator must offer to retain business.

The report examines the various approaches for carriers to meet these higher demands from manufacturers, while remaining profitable. Ports and terminals Car carriers can leverage volume discounts from port authorities and terminal operating companies by concentrating on certain ports.
