Changing vessel technology presents a major challenge to shipping
manufacturers. A change in vessel design can require major
modifications of port facilities, information systems, and
marketing techniques. While shippers must be ready to make changes
in order to be competitive, they must be careful to choose
technology that can be successfully and economically implemented in
their market environment. This volume examines the vessel
technology issues that shipping companies are confronting. Case
studies are presented for liner shipping, liquid and dry bulk
shipping, and the ship-port interface. The cases, based on actual
industry situations, explore management's options with and
decisions on essential aspects of changing vessel technology.
Specific technologies are described along with their economic,
regulatory, and political implications.
