The objective of this study was to develop the requirements and establish the factors needed for long range competitiveness of the ships found to be the most suitable for serving the dry-bulk trades of the U.S. The effort to meet this objective included the identification of markets for U.S. dry-bulk exports and imports through the turn of the century, the development of projections of the demand for U.S. flag ships, the identification of the characteristics of a series of standardized designs to meet the projected demand for both the near and far term, the selection of the ship types most likely to be built in the U.S., and the identification of existing foreign designs that are most suitable for U.S. production and operation.
