The International Transport Forum publishes new Statistical Brief
The July 2014 issue of the Statistics Brief contains the most up-to-date data on global trade.
This update, from data collected through March 2014, shows diverging trends for developed and developing economies:
- USA and EU27 external trade, measured in tonnes of goods moved, remains stagnant;
- BRICS and Asia are locomotives of growth; China’s external trade by sea and air, measured in values, continues to grow;
- Inland freight transport in emerging economies outperforms developed economies.
The brief is available here: http://www.internationaltransportforum.org/statistics/StatBrief/2014-07-Freight-Diverging-Trends.pdf
