Without shipping, life would be different. We would have limited access to a lot of the food we consume, pharmaceuticals, clothes, and consumer goods, as around 90 percent of world trade is transported by ship. Around 1.7 million seafarers make it possible every day. Because of them, and the over 61,000 ships we are served by, we do not run out of what we need.
