Yrjö Kaukiainen

Liverpool University Press

This chapter foregrounds the international competition in shipping during the latter half of the nineteenth century and into the beginning of the twentieth century. It notes the impact that the developing timber trade had on shipping and offers an explanation for the low share of Finnish ships responsible for wood transportations. The chapter also provides a comparison of the difference in behaviour between Finnish and British owners and reports the decline of Britain’s shipping dominance after 1895.
