U.S.-FLAG TRANSPORTATION OF PERISHABLE IMPORTS AND EXPORTS. VOLUME 1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

To provide an assessment of the market for use in planning acquisition and operation of U.S.-flag refrigerated vessels and equipment, this study developed a statistical analysis and a description of U.S. foreign trade in perishables and of U.S.-flag and foreign-flag shipping capacity for perishables. The report presents projections of refrigerated trade to 1985 and projections of refrigerated capacity, in operation and planned, as of the end of 1977. It identifies potential profitability of refrigerated cargo, barriers to entry or expansion by U.S.-flag carriers, and recommends steps that carriers and MARAD can take to increase U.S.-flag participation in liner and nonliner refrigerated services.
