The purpose of this study is to examine a scheme for growth, management rationalization and reform measure of domestic coastal shipping companies, and Ihope that this will be of some help that coastal shipping companies get ready for a management improvement plan and decision-making
For this study, I investigated not only a financial condition and forms of management of coastal shipping companies but also operating earnings and expenses which several kinds of vessel as well as by regional groups in domestic
On the bases of this study I lay out the schemes how to develop domestic coastal shipping company and the fine parts are as follows The first, it is necessary to secure a steadying seamen supply plan. In order to make it more rational, the company have to guarantee seamen's real income and the government have to lighten the individual income tax and support medical insurance fee and employment insurance fee, in addition to establish a joint company for seamen's supply
The second, the coastal shipping company has to make ready for measure devised to deal with an extension of electronic commercial transaction and high value added service.
At present, the coastal shipping companies must cope effectively with the change of economic circumstance that is to say, epoch-making development of information technology, the change of economic based on a knowledge-intensive. So that the companies have to introduce the system of electronic commercial transaction as well as a exclusive berth for coastal shipping
The third, it is necessary to establish a control policy for reasonable space of coasting vessel. Private corporations need to organize what is called "the committee for self-control an excess of bottoms" in order to judge what is reasonable space or not
The fourth, this is the point to be specially considered that an old vessel is to be substitute for the latest economic vessel. Ithink this is an epoch-making device to improve coastal shipping system because nowadays the owner of goods wants high-level and various services. The first consideration is the government has to lend money to build a ship at low interest
The fifth, coastal shipping companies have to grow larger and construct mutual aid system in order to cut down the cost and rise competitiveness against another transportation mode.
The sixth, it is necessary that the government take measures to promote top-ranking coastal shipping company. If the government do it that way, management man will make every effort to make a top-ranking company, and so top-ranker will contribute greatly to developcoastal shipping and cut down transportation cost as well as safety voyage, the protection of environment, and so on.
