List of merchant marine capacity by country

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

List of merchant marine capacity by country is a list of the world foremost fleets of registered trading vessels ranked in both gross register tonnage (GRT) and deadweight tonnage (DWT) sorted by country. The table is based on the annual maritime shipping statistics provided by the British Government and the Department for Transport. It is complete and correct for the year ending 2012.[1] Statistics are published on an annual basis every September.

While countries such as Panama may appear to possess large merchant marines, this is a result of much of it being managed by foreign overseas companies (such as those based in the United States). For example, although the United Kingdom's merchant marine totals 30.0 GRT and 40.7 DWT (millions) in shipping, UK merchant marine interests worldwide consists of 59.4 GRT and 75.2 DWT (millions) in shipping.[2] This largely includes the merchant marines of British Overseas Territories and UK merchant marine interests in former colonies.
