This chapter introduces the volume by first establishing the background of maritime transport and historic trends, leading into a discussion of how these trends reflect the core principles of the discipline of geography: namely space, place, scale and network. A brief review of the history of maritime transport geography is presented, including a summary of current topical issues. The chapter contributions are each introduced, before some final thoughts on the future of the sector and the role to be played by geographers.
