After taking a detailed look at the Non-Vessel Operating Common
Carrier (NVOCC) market, PIERS, The Standard in Trade Intelligence,
announced today it has issued an exclusive report titled “PIERS
NVOCC Analysis” that documents NVOCC growth since 2006. The report

The report concluded that as U.S. trade with the rest of the
world has grown explosively during the past decade, the NVOCC
industry has grown even more rapidly. This growth can be attributed
to several factors, but at the core, NVOCCs have grown because they
facilitate the international transport of relatively small shipment
lots that would otherwise be less likely to move across borders in
the ocean freight system.

“Ultimately, the report provides a wealth of information and
highlights the growth of NVOCCs as a major force in the
transportation supply chain.  NVOCC volume is outpacing
general market trends and we anticipate this trend to continue,”
said PIERS Vice President, Jeff Campbell.

According to the report, during the 2006-2010 period, total U.S.
inbound liner shipping volumes declined by 2.8 percent per year on
an average. However, volumes moving under a NVOCC flag increased by
4.2 percent per year from 2006-2010.

NVOCCs also outperformed total trade in terms of value. In 2006,
NVOCCs captured 28.2 percent of inbound liner shipments by value
and 33.5 percent in 2010. Annual average growth of trade in terms
of value was 0.6 percent from 2006-2010 compared to a 3.7 percent
annual decline for total trade.
