Water transportation history and new trends

  1. 1. INTRODUCTION Transportation is the movement of humans, animals and goods from one location to another. Modes of transport include air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline and space. Humans' first means of transport involved walking, running and swimming. The domestication of animals introduced a new way to lay the burden of transport on more powerful creatures, or humans riding animals for greater speed and duration. Inventions such as the wheel and the sled helped make animal transport more efficient through the introduction of vehicles.
  2. 2. WATER TRANSPORTATION  Transport which can move on water are called water transport.  Water transportation is the intentional movement by water over large distances. Historically water was transported by hand in dry countries, by traditional waterers such as the sakkas of Arabia and Bhishti of India.  Water transport is the cheapest and the oldest mode of transport.  It operates on a natural track and hence does not require huge capital investment in the construction and maintenance of its track except in case of canals.  The cost of operation of water transport is also very less. It has the largest carrying capacity and is most suitable for carrying bulky goods over long distances.  It has played a very significant role in bringing different parts of the world closer and is indispensable to foreign trade.

  4. 4. HISTORY  The history of transportation on water goes back thousands of years.  Because water is the one thing that mankind needs to survive, civilizations have always been settled near and around water.  Historically, societies have always located near water, due partly to the fact that water enables more efficient travel compared to going over land.  Waterways are critically important to the transportation of people and goods throughout the world.  The complex network of connections between coastal ports, inland ports, rail, air, and truck routes forms a foundation of material economic wealth worldwide.
  5. 5. Cont…… Waterways are important to a society. They allow the ease of transportation to ship goods and people to all parts of the world. Types of water transport include boats, ships, barges, canoes, and submarines. Within the United States, waterways have been developed and integrated into a world-class transportation system that has been instrumental in the country’s economic development.  Today, there are more than 17,700 kilometers of commercially important navigation channels in the lower 48 states.

  13. 13. Three and four sailing ships were in service for several centuries. 1450 onwards
  14. 14. Fast sailing ships called ‘clipper ships’ were built. They had long, slim hulls and tall masts. 1800’s
  15. 15. The first steamships to cross the Atlantic combined steam and wind power. 1819
  16. 16. The first ocean-going liners made of iron and driven by a propeller were being built from this time. 1845
  17. 17. Some steam driven river boats had rear paddles and were called stern wheelers, others had paddle wheels on either side. 1880s
  18. 18. Coal burning sailing ships were converted to diesel power, using oil instead of steam. 1910

Advantages & Disadvantages Advantages  Cheap.  Minimum chances of traffic accidents and traffic hazard.  Requires cheap motor powers than for airplanes.  Possesses high load carrying capacity. Disadvantages  Limited functionality capabilities.  Slow in speed.  Difficult to monitor exact location of goods.  High weather susceptible.
  28. 28. ROLE OF WATER TRANSPORTATION IN TOURISM
  29. 29.  Cruise tourism has been a growing market sector around the world, not only as a means to travel to a destination but as an experience.  The development of a destinations as a cruise port requires in-depth economic, environmental and social assessment.  Destinations also need to consider the capacity of existing tourism product, marine infrastructure, land-based transport services and tour operations to meet the needs of this market.  Successful cruise destinations must provide a unique experience for visitors, have well organized transport systems and public amenities, clustered tourism products and attractions and a variety of excursion and shopping options.
  30. 30.  There are a number of considerations in developing appropriate and effective water- based transport facilities and services in a destination including: o Understanding visitor and resident demand for water-based infrastructure and facilities and assessing this demand against existing supply. o Assessment of the ecological, economic, social and cultural impacts of water based transport. o Consideration of the planning and safety regulations and environmental restrictions for the development of water-based transport facilities. o Development of a comprehensive management and monitoring plan for the transport operation to ensure sustainability of the business and conservation of the natural environment. o Incorporation of all stakeholders interests and values to ensure support and commitment for development and ongoing management. o Development of public / private partnership to gain public support for infrastructure development and private involvement in tourism operations.
