Countries that produce products and consumers are the determining factors in important commercial shipping routes in the world. In the 20th century, Europe and America produced as agents and Asia as consumers, but this is not the case since the new beginning. The increase in population, the growth of the GDP index, and the wealth and technology of Asian societies can be seen. Also, due to the increase in population, Western companies have turned to Asia for more profit and to benefit from cheap skilled labor. In this article, we have introduced important shipping points in the world. Then, by studying the statistics of the past decades, examining the current situation and future forecasts, we came to the conclusion that the world's most important commercial shipping routes in the coming years are not only from the West and Europe to Asia. Asia is to these countries and even from Asia to Asia.
