Abstract

The application of competition or antitrust policy to sea transport is probably the most developed and complex area of international shipping policy. The central question which has confronted governments for 120 years is whether, and to what extent, co-operative ventures between liner shipping companies should be exempted from the prohibition of cartel and antitrust activity which applies to business generally under national and international laws; and, if so, under what circumstances and subject to what alternative requirements.
