The author focuses on the effects of the abolition of regulation 4056/86 from European competition law on the tramp shipping industry. He states that the abolition of the regulation could see a change in industry structure, as it will outlaw tramp pools. He claims that of the five options available to owners, only restructuring offers any real way forward. He believes the level of risk that a pool would contravene new competition regulations would be reduced if pool owners reorganized.
