TRANSPORTATION AND SPATIAL CYCLES: EVIDENCE FROM MARITIME SYSTEMS

This paper investigates maritime systems within a post-fordist interpretation using three approaches. The first underlines the constant contradiction between transport supply and demand; the second examines innovation and its spatial diffusion, and the third describes the adaption capacity of transport networks with regard to changes. Central to these approaches are cycles which provide a conceptual background for an analysis of the world economy and of the role of transportation. The analysis is divided into long-, medium, and short-term perspectives of maritime systems.
