This chapter explores the survival of traditional shipping despite the emergence of revolutionary changes in the shipping world during the late nineteenth century. It examines the reasons for the persistence of tradition in sailing vessels and assesses the old-fashioned and, arguably, inefficient transportation system. The chapter also details the technical developments of the twentieth century and notes the ways they drastically affected the old logistic model. It concludes with a discussion of the eventual decline of Baltic and coastal ships under sail.
