MEASURING THE PRODUCTIVITY OF U.S. SHIPPING FIRMS 1966-1970
The focus of this study is the shipping company as an operating unit, and the industry as a whole. The study examines the relationship between the shipping company and its environment. The environment includes such things as the nature of the market or markets within which the firm is operating and the amount and type of competition which it faces within these markets. Other environmental factors are the changing technological requirements for operation with new developments such as containerization, institutional arrangements such as conferences which affect a firms' operating procedures, and government policies and regulations.
