World Merchant Fleet
The number of general cargo ships make up over 1/3 of the world merchant fleet! 114 million dwt can be transported by these. However, this is significant less compared to the 253 million dwt, which can be transported by all container ships together. And that, even though they make up only 10% of the worlds merchant fleet. By comparision, there are more bulk carriers (20%) and crude oil tankers (14%).
