International shipping accounts for more than 90% of all goods traded internationally. The International Chamber of Shipping estimates that there are currently about 50,000 commercial ships cruising the oceans. On cargo ships known as container ships, massive intermodal containers are transported (sometimes spelled containerships). They are divided into different categories according to the amount of weight that each group can support.
