Abstract

During 1961-81, the merchant fleet of the Soviet Union increased by 345 percent, and the Russians captured increasingly greater shares of cargo on some of the most lucrative shipping lanes of the world. This has put financial stress on established shipping conferences, where overbuilt capacities and stagnating trade volumes had already reached crisis proportions. The Trans-siberian land Bridge has also offered a competitive route between the Far East and Western Europe. Embargoes and labor boycotts imposed in the United States and some other countries have altered conditions since 1980, and the Russians are now reevaluating their shipping arrangements.
