PORT SYSTEM STUDY FOR THE PUBLIC PORTS OF WASHINGTON STATE AND PORTLAND, OREGON. VOLUME II. TECHNICAL SUPPLEMENT. PART 5. MARINE-PORT TECHNOLOGY FORECASTS AND DEMAND ANALYSES

Technological developments embodies in the ships engaged in trade with a particular region do not arise from local conditions but more in response to conditions existing on trade routes around the world. Exceptions are vessels primarily engaged in local coastwise or internal trades. Limitations of ports, volume of commerce, and certain commercial practices, such as maintenance of frequent schedules, will determine which ships in the world fleet will actually serve the region. The projected existence of more efficient ships in the world fleet that would not serve the region because of port limitations may be an incentive to such ports to remove restrictive limitations.
