The Globalisation of the Oceans

Frank Broeze

Liverpool University Press

This chapter closely examines the contradictory narratives of the 1980s, that of a decline throughout the global economy and subsequent reduction of staff and demise or reduction of a good number of companies within the container industry, and the continued growth of the industry itself, plus further technological innovation and shrewd joint ventures that kept the industry afloat. Subsections examine in great detail: - General Developments; Individual Trade Routes; Intermodalism; and the Structure of the Industry: Concentration.

Keywords:   Trade Recession, 1980s Shipping, 1987 Stock Market Crash, China Overseas Shipping Corporation, Seatrain, Shipping Tonnage
