And Atmospheric Administration, N. O. (n.d.). Chapter 13 : Supporting Marine Commerce and Transportation. Retrieved from

Excerpt: CONNECTING PEOPLE, PLACES, AND PRODUCTS. Value of the Marine Transportation System The U.S. marine transportation system is the nation?s link to global commerce and an essential and growing component of the national economy. The movement of manufacturing jobs from the United States to overseas, the nation?s dependence on raw materials from other countries, global competition to provide high quality goods at competitive prices, and consumer demand have combined to increase the nation?s dependence on the import of foreign materials and goods. At the same time, increasing affluence in foreign nations, coupled with worldwide population growth, has stimulated international demand for U.S. agricultural and manufactured products.
