This paper provides a broad view of the subject of productivity in overseas transportation systems, with particular emphasis on directions in which productivity can be improved. It is recognized that oceangoing vessels are only one of the elements in overseas transportation systems and that costs must be assessed on a system-wide basis. References are made to analyses carried out and techniques developed at the Center for Maritime Studies in the course of a project for the Maritime Administration, including the use of a mathematical model of containership fleets and terminals to determine comparative transport capabilities, costs and average cargo delivery times.
