This chapter examines the system of management in merchant shipping, notably the role and importance of a long-distance shipmaster, during the 1800s, and uses the Finnish merchant marine as a case study to examine the weakness in shipping management and to determine the usefulness of long-term strategic planning. Also presented in the essay is statistical data analysing the significance of language skills.
