Bi-Coastal Disorder: Commercial Shifts in North American Maritime Ranges

A maritime range is an area where a set of ports are either in competition, complementary, sharing a common regulatory regime or have some geographical commonality (e.g. contiguity, proximity or being part of an archipelago). Commercial services are established by maritime shipping companies to either link maritime ranges (deep-sea services) or to connect the range itself with regional, feeder or cabotage services. A maritime range thus represents a functional region that includes the coast (the maritime / land interface) but as well as the commercial hinterland that the range is potentially servicing.
