The Globalisation of the Oceans

Frank Broeze

Liverpool University Press

This chapter continues to trace the activities and influences of major container companies throughout the 1990s, during the steady culture of globalisation. It is divided into the following subsections:- Enlargement of Scale and Concentration of Power; Marketing and External Relations; From Consortia to Alliances; Larger Ships, Mega-Mergers, and Further Concentration of Power; and The State of the Conference System. The chapter ends with Broeze’s predictions for the future of the container industry, suggesting that the previous conference system will becomes less relevant as container companies continue to protect and promote their own interests as the global market continues to change.
