In this piece we will take a look at the nine shipping stocks that pay dividends. If you want to skip our primer on the shipping industry, the attractiveness of dividends, and want to take a look at the top five stocks in this piece, then head on over to 5 Best Shipping Stocks That Pay Dividends.

Recent trends in the global economy are nothing short of a historic crisis. After taking a beating from the worst pandemic in modern history, populations all over the world were on their early path to recovery when disaster struck in the form of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This created a massive imbalance in global economies and saw prices for oil and commodities shoot up to record levels.

At the same time, global supply chains are finally picking up momentum after witnessing extreme pain due to post pandemic demand destruction. At the heart of all supply chains is the logistics industry, which is bifurcated into two categories. Out of these, inland transport covers the trucking and railroad segments, while shipping categorizes firms that haul cargo through the ocean.

The shipping industry is at the heart of the global supply chain as was evidenced by the recent Suez Canal crisis. The canal, which is a hub for ocean freight carriers, was blocked for a little less than a week in 2021. This then resulted in price increases for several products all over the globe.

Further boosting the importance of the shipping industry are several market research studies, all of which paint an optimistic future for the sector. For instance, a report by Valuates Report estimated that the industry was worth $61 billion in 2021, and that it should grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% until 2028. Trade agreements and capacity optimization are thought to be key drivers of the industry's growth.

Another report by Fortune Business Insights analyzes the industry through the tonnage that it ships. The firm estimates that the industry's shipping tonnage stood at 11 billion tons in 2021 and that it can grow at a CAGR of 2.5% over the next couple of years to stand at 13 billion tons in 2028. The research firm also believes that capacity optimization in the shipping industry, through large players partnering up with startups to use the latest technologies for optimizing trade routes and positioning data, can eliminate several pain points for the industry, such as the age old problem of shipping empty containers after a journey is completed.

The most optimistic research report part of the analysis today comes from Market Research Future. It estimates that the cargo shipping market was valued at $13 billion in 2021, and it will grow at a 5.2% CAGR to stand at $22 billion by 2030.

Additionally, another crucial marker to analyze the state of the shipping industry is also showing positive signs. This indicator is the Jefferies Shipping Index, which is a list of top shipping stocks made by the research firm Jefferies. As of April 2022, the Jefferies shipping index was up by 25% annually, indicating that the industry is seeing increased investor confidence. This is believed to be resulting from higher demand for tankers in the aftermath of the Russian invasion and strong performance by the tanker and dry bulk subsegments of the industry.

In this article our focus would be dividend-paying shipping stocks. Some stocks with the highest dividend yields in the industry are Genco Shipping & Trading Limited (NYSE:GNK), ZIM Integrated Shipping Services Ltd. (NYSE:ZIM), and Golden Ocean Group Limited (NASDAQ:GOGL).
