This chapter examines the shipping depression between 1901 and 1911 and how it affected the freight rates of the coastal trade. As relatively little research relates to the coastal sector during this period, it attempts to determine whether or not the coastal experience differed from the rest of the shipping industry. It uses the Welsh coal trade as a case study. It concludes that the coastal trade suffered through the same depression as the overseas trade, but as the cargo was often more mundane and the supply-and-demand less likely to fluctuate than overseas trade, their freight rates remained more reliable.
