Without shipping, intercontinental trade, the bulk transport of raw materials, and the import/export of affordable food and manufactured goods would simply not be possible. Ships are technically sophisticated, high value assets (larger ships can cost over US $100 million to build), and the operation of merchant ships generates an estimated annual income of over US $380 billion in freight rates within the global economy.
