Abstract
In the 1990s, following the challenges imposed by globalisation, the liner
shipping industry experienced profound changes, leading major carriers to
create ad-hoc logistics business-units. Nevertheless the vertical intergration of
various regions. This paper aims at analysing the impact of such barriers on
carriers'pathways of expansion in the logistics business. It mainly focuses
on the East-Asian market, as a relevant empirical case in which important
dicvlose sui-generis paths of expansion achieved by major carriers, in
contrast with linear constructs of time and space proposed by classical TNC
theories, In such respect, port operations reveal to be the most critical stage
of the chain. the 'sidestep' of the port phase, leading to investments in other
on-shore activities (warehousing, include terminals, etc.) as well as the
implementation of aggressive financial campaigns (acquisitions and takeovers),
reveal the unfaltering will of top shipping lines: the quick achivement of
a successful vertical and horizontal expansion depite environmental obstacles.
