Break-Bulk Cargo Ships Built in U.S. Shipyards Since WWII

Most recent update: June 2, 2015.


After WWII, there was, of course, an excess of US-built cargo ships and new shipbuilding programs did not get started until the 1950s.  Then, between 1953 and 1969, 176 break-bulk cargo ships were delivered - a construction rate of over ten ships a year, all built with the assistance of Construction Differential Subsidy, (CDS), and operated with the assistance of Operating Differential Subsidy, (ODS).  The advent of containerization, however, brought an end to the era of break-bulk ships and many redundant break-bulk ships were converted to containerships while the first true containerships were being built.  In the 1980s, however, the Reagan Administration ended the CDS and ODS programs and the entire foreign-trade fleet became redundant overnight.  As a result, almost all the ships in this table were transferred to either the RRF or the NDRF.
