Ever considered chemical transport to The Bahamas? Here's why you should

There are many countries around the world that you could export chemicals to, but some can be rather unjustly overlooked for chemical transportation to. One of these countries is The Bahamas. The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, to use its full and official name, is an island country of over 700 islands, islets and cays in the Atlantic Ocean, with Cuba to the south and the US state of Florida to the northwest. There are many good, but also easy to overlook, reasons to export chemicals to this country - and, here, one of the UK's most highly regarded shipping companies, Wake Marine, spells out many of these reasons.

 

The Bahamas imports many, many chemicals

Chemicals are among the list of products that The Bahamas imports especially much of. Plus, the country clearly spends much on imports; it has been estimated that it spent as much as $2.882 billion on import goods in 2012. There is also evidence that The Bahamas has plenty of money to continue spending on imports; it is, in terms of gross domestic product - that's GDP - per capita, the third richest country in the Americas, after the United States and Canada.

 

Tourism of The Bahamas and why you should keep it in mind

Hence, though The Bahamas is relatively small in terms of its physical size and population number, its economic significance makes it worth considering for liquid cargo transportation to through services of Wake Marine. You should also consider that the country annually attracts a large number of tourists, many of which from the nearby United States. Tourists regularly swell the country's population and, as could the country's resident population of 351,461 as recorded in the 2010 census, could include many people who seek chemicals that you want to sell. If you doubt even now that the country attracts many tourists, allow us to remind you that tourism provides what is thought to be 60% of its GDP and employs roughly half of the Bahamian workforce...

 

You could find our liquid shipping services surprisingly useful

The factors described above help to explain why you could find that a large variety of chemical products, including crude oil and lubeoil, are welcomed by The Bahamas. That country might be an entire ocean away from the UK, but you can have chemicals dispatched to The Bahamas with a surprisingly large degree of ease thanks to ocean freight shipping by Wake Marine.
