Abstract: Through our study we want to approach some aspects of maritime transport services market in the

the evolution of world trade and on the other hand to clarify the tendency of increasing transport capacity
even in crisis conditions. Therefore we intend t o address in detail the evolution of the global fleet and world
trade. Research conducted by econometric models at different times, as fleet capacity is a reaction at different

allows easy data processing.
Keywords: world fleet; the maritime world trade; world fleet performance indicators
