Shipping provides transport services to international trade. The collapse of trade in 2008 came when Banks, as a result of liquidity shortages, became unable to finance international trade by providing the customary short term finance including letters of credit. Shortage of liquidity was also compounded by loss of trust between financial institutions, promptly reducing interbank lines and customer credit exposures. The result: no cargoes to move around.
