Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers
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.
