Provides a concise account of the development of fully cellular deep-sea services to the present day and reviews the current pattern of activity. There follows an extensive analysis of the deep-sea, fully cellular fleet with age, flag, capacity, speed, deck gear and dimensions amongst the characteristics investigated. This leads on to a examination and estimation of the container capacity offered on the major deep-sea routes. The study concludes with an analysis of the orderbook and a consideration, on a route-by-route basis, of future prospects for fully cellular services--both on established containerised routes and on those routes where containerisation has yet to penetrate to any significant extent.
