  • Table: 54-205-X
    Description:

    This publication presents a comprehensive overview of domestic and international shipping activities at Canadian ports. It provides vessel traffic data and commodity detail by points of loading and unloading; containerization and commodity movements. With the release of the new 2000 issue the transport markets key indicators on the size and structure of the Canadian water carrier industry; as well as financial and operational statistics on revenues and expenditures, assets, liabilities, services, employees, property value and fuel comsumed are not included.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Canada's major container ports have competed successfully against their U.S. counterparts for overseas container traffic. However, the ocean container shipping industry is undergoing changes that will impact on their relationships with ports and competition among ports for container traffic has been fierce. This paper explores how Canadian ports might fare in this increasingly competitive environment, based on their natural and man-made attributes, their competitive stance and their potential to meet the evolving ocean container industry.

    The assessment includes a review of the ocean container shipping industry, the North American container market and competing ports in the United States (U.S.). This report uses data from two sources, Statistics Canada's marine international origin/destination (O/D) database and the U.S. Department of Transport Maritime Administration's (MARAD) Annual Import Export Waterborne Databank which is based on Journal of Commerce P.I.E.R.S. data.

    The keys to the success of Canadian container ports have been a combination of natural endowments, investments in intermodal facilities and competitive pricing. These factors are likely to continue into the future, however, the competition among container ports is likely to intensify as industry consolidation continues and as publicly funded U.S. intermodal terminal and corridor projects come to fruition.

    Description:

    This study identifies the flag-related trends of fleets used in Canada's international sea-borne trade relative to the world fleet during the 15-year period from 1985 to 1999. The goal is to determine if there is any indication that fleets that served Canada were any less safe in 1999 than in 1985.

    This study uses fleet and ship-casualty statistics published by Lloyd's Register and data on vessel entrances and clearances from Statistics Canada's Marine International Origin-Destination Database to develop a flag-related risk index.

  • Table: 50-002-X20000045453
    Description:

    Canada's ports handled a record 382.0 million tonnes (Mt.) of cargo in 1999 and a record of 2.2 million TEURS (twenty-foot-equivalent units) of containers.

    Release date: 2000-11-27

  • Table: 50-002-X20000025103
    Description:

    The ports handled a total of 274.3 million tonnes (Mt.) of cargo. Strong increases in domestic shipments, particularly in the forest sector were sufficient to offset a decline in international shipments, which were strongly affected by a decrease in iron ore shipments to US ports.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    International shipping is a highly competitve industry, especially the shipping of containers. Shipping lines are constantly trying to increase productivity by reducing costs and by attracting larger volumes of containers. In response to spiraling container freight rates, the lines have been driven to increase economies of scale. These economies are expected to be achieved through largers ships and fewer, more efficient port calls. Larger ships and client demands for frequent service have encouraged innovative alliances and pooling agreements among lines to maximize the use of this larger capacity.

    Description:

    The universe of Canadian marine transport firms is composed of three sectors: for-hire (or commercial), private and government. Each marine carrier is assigned to the sector from which it derives the majority of its revenue. Carriers that change their mix of operations from year to year might be recorded as private one yaer and for-hire the following year.

  • Table: 50-002-X19980013458
    Description:

    Canadian ports handled a record quantity of international cargo in the first half of 1997. The ports handled 125.2 million tonnes (Mt.) of international cargo, an increase of 7.0% over the first six months of 1996. International shipping activity in the mining sector and crude petroleum transshipments drove the increase.

    Description:

    Canadian ports handled a record 51.3 Mt of international freight in the first quarter of 1997, an increase of 5.1% over the same period in 1996. Total international and domestic traffic increased just 2.4% to 61.1 Mt, as a 10.1% decline in domestic freight partially offset the gain in international traffic. Domestic traffic, at 9.8 Mt, sank to its lowest recorded first quarter level.
