British Shipping and World Competition

S.G. Sturmey

Liverpool University Press

This chapter addresses the influence of nationalism in the shipping industry during the interwar period and how its presence in various maritime nations affected British shipping. It groups countries into categories based on how large an effect they had on British shipping, and explores the factors that made it so. Subsidised shipping is given particular consideration, especially American and trans-Pacific voyages. It asserts that subsidised shipping did impact British shipping, though over-tonnaging made a larger economic dent in the industry. It concludes that if British shipowners had been more flexible in their shipping services, they would likely have avoided the damage done by subsidisation by staying a step ahead of it.

Keywords:   British Nationalism, European Nationalism, Shipping Policymaking, Subsidised Shipping, American Subsidised Shipping
