An important dimension of any supply chain is transportation links. Transporta- tion can be depicted as the glue that holds the supply chain together. Global supply chains are very dependent upon efficient and effective transportation and the related Liner carriers offer set schedules over specific routes. They also offer set tariffs and services of channel intermediaries discussed next.
Liners usually carry break-bulk shipments of less- than-shipload size. Most container and roll-on, roll-off RO-RO ships are liners. Global Transportation Options Liners are operated by large steamship companies, which usually belong to ship- ping conferences.
