Maritime economics is the economics of maritime transportation, i.e.,
an economic analysis of its users (shippers and passengers), primary
service providers (transportation carriers and ports), secondary service
providers (e.g., ship pilots and towage, ship agents, stevedores and
freight forwarders) and resources (e.g., labor, infrastructure and
mobile capital such as ships). As a field of study, maritime economics
consists of shipping economics, ship economics and port economics.
Shipping economics is concerned with the economics of transporting
freight by ships. Ship economics is concerned with the economics of
ships that are used in maritime transportation.
