Abstract:

In the period 1967 through 1972, developments in ships and shipping far exceeded predictions made earlier, and even some made in the early part of this period. To service the growing numbers of increasingly specialized and increasingly larger ships, ports embarked on extraordinary developments. Examples and trends are given for four kinds of commercial ships and the cargoes they carry. About 150 ports worldwide were selected to show the nature and scope of developments in both highly developed and developing nations. Wherever possible the financial data found are included to give a measure of the magnitude of recent investments. The selection of particular examples was based largely on the availability of information. Other pertinent topics that were not systematically studied are mentioned briefly. Author
