The two measures of effectiveness by which ships are compared are the cost per unit of cargo carried and the relative revenue required to earn a stated return on the original investment. The computational method which accomplishes this comparison places a ship on a hypothetical trade route, starts it circling and making port calls, and at the end of a year's operation totals the cost of operation and the amount of cargo transported.
