Since this is a pilot study on conference rates, little in-depth discussion is attempted. An effort is made to broadly discuss the various elements, their relative importance, their interaction, and their influence in the final establishment of rates so that some general guideline may be provided for comparison of maritime freight rates between different shipping nations. Almost half of the document is devoted to appendices which supply supportive data on different conferences' rate obligations, range and cargo descriptions, and selected rates.
