Liner shipping is contrasted with so-called “tramp” shipping, which involves ships setting sail at indeterminate dates, often only when they have filled their cargo or passenger capacity. Liner services involve higher fixed costs than tramp shipping not only because of larger administrative overhead, but also because the necessity of. A detailed description of information systems in one sector of the freight transportation industry is provided in this appendix. It is included for illustrative purposes only and is not intended to suggest that the information systems of the liner shipping industry are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks or are more lacking in protection against such attacks than the information systems in.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! In waterborne transportation, an increase in fleet size involves long-term planning and heavy investments. Institutional features; trade imbalances and demand variations; and customer demands for high frequency create a situation where liner shipping companies tend to operate with a high level of unutilised vessel capacity.   LINER SHIPPING INDUSTRY • Liner shipping is the service of transporting goods by means of high-capacity, ocean-going ships that transit regular routes on fixed schedules. There are approximately liner services, most sailing weekly, in operation today.

Liner Ship Fleet Planning: Models and Algorithms systematically introduces the latest research on modeling and optimization for liner ship fleet planning with demand uncertainty. Container shipping companies have struggled since the financial crisis of , making it critical for them to make informed decisions about their fleet planning and development. As the dramatic market changes in the liner shipping business have continued, triggered by the increasing power of shippers, an unexpected world economic downturn, trade imbalance and the trend of trade multipolarization in the world, many liner companies have.
