We've recently put together this infographic showing the Top 20 Shipping Lines in the world, using data from alphaliner.com. The shipping lines are ranked by Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs). This information is how many twenty-foot shipping containers a company can carry at any given time.
As you can see, the top 5 shipping lines (APM-Maersk, MSC, CMA CGM, COSCO, and Evergreen Line) move more than half of the container cargo in the world.
