(p.197) Chapter 10 Economics of Shipping Enterprises1
British Shipping and World Competition

S.G. Sturmey

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores the economics of British shipping enterprises in relation to the necessary factors for economic expansion. It examines the economics of different ship types - cargo liners, passenger liners, tramps, and tankers - their cost structures; profitability; vessel technology; and ability to attract and retain both capital and labour. It concludes with predictions for post-1960 shipping economics, and suggests that smaller companies would be more likely to suffer from stunted fleet growth than larger, established companies.

Keywords:   British Liner Shipping, British Tramps, British Tankers, Modern Shipping Technology, Suez Canal
