THE EMPLOYMENT OF COMBINED CARRIERS
The first Shipping Study published in 1971, examined the role of combined carriers in the bulk trades. At that time the fleet of combined carriers numbering some 107 ships and totalling 8.7 million DWT was forecast to reach 25 million DWT by 1975. In mid-1978, the fleet of combined carriers amounted to 396 ships and was some 40 million DWT larger than the fleet in 1971 (i.e. 47.6 million DWT). This fleet is operating in a trading environment completely different from that of the early 1970's. This present study analyses the fleet, trading patterns, employment and economics of combined carriers in the late 1970's. Throughout, comparisons will be made with the findings of Study Number One.
