This course introduces the business of maritime transportation focusing on the commercial aspects of shipping.  The Maritime Transportation System (MTS) is treated as an end-to-end process, starting from the source of cargo to the end destination, but the primary discussions are focused on the business of the commercial maritime fleet. Topics covered include the theory of shipping management, global and national regulatory frameworks, types of shipping activity, vessel and marine terminal management, theory of freight rates and application of new technologies on an intermodal basis.  Several types of ships, shipping services and types of cargos are described including tramp shipping, chartering, passenger operations, industrial carriers and tankers.  The course highlights current industry issues and practices and forecasts future trends.  These issues include the consideration of business, societal, environmental, and governmental aspects.
