Area of merchant ships

Quite useful that about 71% of the earth's surface consists of water. Thus as much as 90% of the world's goods traffic can be made via approximately 50.000 merchant ships.

Although the coastline in Europe is only 56,992 km long (just under one-fifth of the world's coastline!), nearly 50% of the inter-European goods are shipped.

However, much more important is the waterway between Europe and Asia for goods. As much as 95% of these goods are shipped. And all this largely unnoticed by the general public.
