This chapter examines the process and factors necessary for the internationalisation of shipping to successfully occur, using Japan as an example. The chapter is divided into two sections:- the first studies the two factors that enable internationalisation - technology and investment - as they apply to Japanese shipping; the second examines the way internationalisation evolves, by presenting and dissecting two narratives - the rise of Japan’s trade networks, and alliances within the global web. The primary focus of study is the Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYT) shipping company.
