COPENHAGEN, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Shipping group A.P. Moller-Maersk said on Friday it expected 2020 growth in global seaborne container traffic to be slightly higher than this year, although an ongoing trade war would limit the chances of a faster pick-up in traffic.
Maersk, the world’s biggest container shipper, said it expected global container demand to grow by 1-3% in 2020 compared with 1-2% this year.
“The continued weakening of global sentiment, above all in the manufacturing sector, reduces the likelihood of a growth pick-up in 2020,” the company said in a statement. (Reporting by Jacob Gronholt-Pedersen and Stine Jacobsen; Editing by Mark Potter)
