Description: Container ships have largely taken over the tasks of carrying goods to market internationally. In previous decades, these trades had been undertaken by numerous small tweendeckers. Large container ships have satisfied the promoters of economies of scale.
Liner Trades covers the types of vessels operating liner services and their trade routes, and provides a comprehensive description of modern container ship operations and management. Co-operative ventures and consortia within the various service networks are detailed as are the financial and legal aspects of the trades and various types of documentation involved.
This book is aimed not only at the students who wish to work in this sector, but also at those who wish to increase their knowledge of all aspects of the shipping business.
