After reaching a Low Point in the 1960�?Ts, the United states merchant Marine Fleet now appears ready to regain its dominance on the High seas. And that is Good news for All americans since the merchant Fleet is an important part of the Overall defense Structure of our nation. The United states in the period immediately following world War ii had an impressive merchant Marine Fleet which handled better than 50 per cent of our foreign Trade tonnage. Yet As the years passed other maritime nations modernized their fleets while America did nothing to keep Pace. Thus american Flag ships which carried 58 per cent of u. S. Import Export cargoes in 1947, hauled Only 42 per cent in 1950. It continued to be downhill from that Point on a to 23 per cent in 1955, la per cent in 1960, and to less than 5 per cent in 1969. The main reason for the decline in american participation in maritime com Mercedas the change in the Type of cargo being carried. While the amounts of general cargo being shipped showed Little change shipments of Oil s. Merchant marines experienced a 170 per cent increase Between 1956 and the Early 1970�?Ts. And the u. S. Fleet simply did not have the tankers necessary to participate in Teh transporting of Oil. All that is changing now due in Large measure to the merchant Marine act which Congress passed in 1970. The legislation a the first dealing with the merchant Fleet since 1936 a provided incentives for the manufacture of tankers and bulk carriers and generated $3 billion Worth of new contracts. It also recognized that improvements in the merchant Fleet had spin off benefits for americans defense since manufacturers of the merchant ships also conduct construction for the Navy. In the past three years american shipyards have delivered 76 new vessels and have completed construction on 17 others.
