ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a report titled 'The Drewry Annual Container Market Review and Forecast 2000,' which revealed that the liner shipping industry, in Great Britain, will fare much better in 2000 than it did in many of the previous years. In addition to volume growth and rising freight rates in the main east-west trades, the market is experiencing an improvement on many north-south routes. The report also highlights the growing role that information technology systems and electronic commerce solutions are playing in reducing costs and raising service levels. The latest report stresses the significance of the global operating alliances and, in particular, corporate mergers/takeovers as contributing to the turnaround.
