Where does all the STUFF come from?  Where does it go?
Here’s a graphic based on statistics from the World Shipping Council:

Shipping-Stats-2010-WorldShipping.org-RGBOf course if you’re like me you’ll be interested in a black & white version for printing.

I based the polar globe perspective on this image of shipping routes from “The Far Reaching Effects of (Panama) Canal Expansion” [midAmericaFreight.org].  

(I hope it’s obvious the connecting lines aren’t showing shipping routes, but rather they indicate WHERE each country is on the map…)
