Mode Measure Description Unit Data Period & Source
Maritime Transport LP1: Liner Shipping Connectivity Index An index captures how well countries are connected to the global shipping network and reflects the strategies of container shipping lines seeking to maximize revenue through market coverage. It is computed based on number of ships, their container-carrying capacity, average and maximum vessel size, number of services, and number of companies that deploy container ships in ports. 2004–2014: UNCTAD
LP2: Container Port Traffic The flow of containers in 20-ft equivalent units from land to sea transport modes, and vice versa, including coastal shipping and international journeys. Transshipment traffic is counted as two lifts at the intermediate port and includes empty units. TEUs 2000–2013: The World Bank
LP3: International Sea Cargo Throughput The average quantity of cargo that pass through a port from arrival at the port to loading onto a ship, or from the discharge from a ship to clearance from the port. ton 2004–2012: ASEAN Statistics of Transportation
LP4: International Sea Container Throughput The average quantity of cargo carried by containers, which reflects the fact that international trade is primarily handled by containers. TEUs 2004–2012: ASEAN Statistics of Transportation
LP5: Number of International Container Vessel Fleet The number of a variety of operating container ships. count 2004–2012: ASEAN Statistics of Transportation
LP6: Volume of International Container Vessel Fleet Gross tonnage of all container ships, as measured in TEUs. ton 2004–2012: ASEAN Statistics of Transportation
Air Transport LP7: Air Freight The volume of freight, express, and diplomatic bags carried on each flight stage (aircraft operation from takeoff to next landing) ton-kilometer 2000–2013: The World Bank
LP8: International Air Cargo Unloaded Volume Gross cargo unloaded by unit load devices from aircrafts. ton 2004–2012: ASEAN Statistics of Transportation
