ABSTRACT: The main purpose of the paper is to recognize and characterize the substantial trends and ongoing phenomena as well as processes on the supply and demand side of the global ocean container market and then evaluate their impact on global supply chains and the whole mega logistics system. The author has analysed the dynamics of potential supply and effective demand growth on this market in the recent years and assessed changes observed on both market sides with respect to global logistics area. On this basis, the influence of global container market development on global logistics supply chains has been estimated. There were also presented and analysed the main effects of speeding-up implementation of disruptive innovations such as blockchain technology and digital trade platforms development in maritime container transport and trade sectors on the efficiency and effectiveness of global logistics chains and the whole logistics area. The issues related to the security of smooth digital development of container maritime transport and the mega logistics area were taken into consideration as well.
