How many miles a year do shipping boats travel?



  1. 0 Votes

    The amount of distance ships travel in a year is dependent on market forces—how much cargo is being purchased and transported around the world—and so this of course varies month to month, year to year. On average, a bulk carrier covers 4,000 miles on a trip across the Atlantic, which takes about 12 days. Depending on the freight that needs to be hauled, ships will make this journey several times throughout a year. Keep in mind that for a shipping company, ships docked at port do not make any money.
