Η επιλογή των θαλάσσιων διαδρομών (routes) με στόχο την κερδοφορία της ναυτιλιακής επιχείρησης
The current Thesis examines the various dry bulk routes in order to highlight the most profitable among the various destinations of the world’s seaborne trade. The most profitable route is defined as the one that the voyage costs involved are less and the voyage is the safest. Ultimately, the net profits are the highest possible for the ship-owner and the company overall. The goal, ultimately, lies in exploring the ways of profitability that a shipping company can employ, through the use of maritime geography as a critical element in the decision-making aspect of the company's business strategy.
