Our annual statistical bulletin, the Irish Maritime Transport Economist is a comprehensive reference guide to maritime transport statistics, including; trade, traffic, international shipping markets and economic data.
The Irish Maritime Development Office publishes the Irish Maritime Transport Economist in April of each year. This publication is a statistical bulletin and a comprehensive source of national maritime traffic, trade and global shipping market data. The Irish Maritime Transport Economist provides an in-depth retrospective analysis of maritime freight volumes, cargoes and passenger freight volumes.
The publication provides a valuable descriptive statistical analysis for the maritime industry on the dynamic relationship between the national ports, the shipping sector and the Irish economy. Maritime traffic handled by the Northern Irish ports is also included in the annual research as the Irish Maritime Transport Economist reflects the economic impact of maritime passenger and freight traffic from an all island perspective.
The archive of the Irish Maritime Transport Economist carries annual statistics and analysis from 2004 onwards. The archive provides an insight on national port performance and maritime freight and passenger activity.
