Peculiar Aspects on the Market of the Maritime Transport
The purpose of this work is to approach some peculiar aspects linked to the registration of the world maritime fleet, which are done by certain countries and territories; both by theirs dimensions and also by their economic indicators they a not in a dependency with the transport services. They are already known that some countries and territories are donors of the flag of convenience, having as purpose the returns of the taxes for the registration of the ships, but whose level will be smaller than those of other countries, as the countries of residence of the right owner. These countries – donors of the flag of convenience which are real fiscal paradises – which are eluding of the insurance rules of the navigation, as well as those referring to wrights of the working people on board. However they appear a high level of monopolizing the registration of the ships, bigger than that scored by other indicators, as gross domestic product (GDP), or the trade of these countries and territories, so that the first 35 countries and territories focus 95 % from the registration of the world fleet. Another aspect we prefigure is that the commercial ships represent assets, and certain situations on the market of navy construction and of the transport services could determine as the ships with a certain length of service to be more expensive than those new built.
