ABSTRACT
This article examined progressive changes in the total factor productivity of U.S. water carriers by using non-parametric frontier techniques. Within the framework of Malmquist productivity indices, total factor productivity growth was decomposed into technological progress and technical efficiency change for the period 1960-1979 for the maritime carriers. The analyses revealed that individual maritime carriers experienced increases in productivity; a result primarily attributed to efficiency coupled with smaller increases in technological innovations for these water carriers.
