Abstract

Shipping, of all industries, is the most international. It has to be viewed, therefore, not from a narrow national or indeed nationalistic viewpoint, but against the broad sweep of world developments, particularly in the trade sector. After all, some 75 % of the world’s surface is covered by the vast oceans, over 80 % of world trade moves in whole or in part by sea, and since time immemorial humankind has voyaged upon these oceans for the purpose of trading.
