Shipping - What's driving it

Trying to get an understanding what is driving shipping stocks. Is it following the market as well as being positively impacted by inflation?

Hi Zoiks, welcome to the Shipping News board.

Trying to get an understanding what is driving shipping stocks. Is it following the market as well as being positively impacted by inflation?

Shipping is a broad component within the transportation segment. There are various types of shipping- container, dry bulk, conventional tankers, LNG tankers, passenger/cruise. Each type of shipping is at a different stage of its growth cycle. Each type or sector has different drivers e.g. container shipping seems to be driven by logistical issues rather than strictly demand.
