U.S.-FLAG TRANSPORTATION OF PERISHABLE IMPORTS AND EXPORTS. VOLUME 2. RESEARCH REPORT

To meet the needs of carriers and shippers for an assessment of the market for refrigerated maritime transportation and of the U.S.-flag share of that market, the Maritime Administration examined the following: the present demand for refrigerated service; the future demand likely to be in existing trades; additional demand likely to be in new trades; capacity which U.S.-flag operators offer; their competitiveness with trading-partner fleets and cross-traders; planned new capacity; sufficient capacity to satisfy demand and meet competition technological, institutional, or operational innovations to expand U.S.-flag capacity competitively with foreign-flag carriers; investments required for the expanded service; freight rates required to support added investment at the projected utilization; and MARAD'S plans to support the U.S.-flag carriers to promote U.S.-flag participation in refrigerated trades.
