OPERATIONS ANALYSIS OF MARITIME TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. REPORT ON IMPROVED SYSTEMS FOR TRADE ROUTE 29

This is a study on preliminary improved systems for trade route 29, the third of a series of steps comprising the overall Selected Routes Study contract. The system is designed to meet the functional requirements of the route and make evaluations, including estimates of the economics, to indicate the approximate degree of improvement over the conventional system. Various advanced system concepts are reviewed with the objective of selecting those offering the best possibility for improvement of service on the route. Functional requirements call for transportation of specific annual quantities of cargo between California ports and ports in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Okinawa. Three improved systems, capable of carrying "peak voyage" cargo, were devised for the current period, and for 1975 in accordance with anticipated trade demands. This report is based on the "Report on Functional Requirements of an Improved System on Trade Route 29," dated August 10, 1961, which contains supporting background information.
