Estimates of the operating costs of ships are central to the analysis of a range of issues in shipping and ports investment and operations. As part of BTE studies a substantial body of information on ships operations had been assembled. This paper has generalised that information into statistical relationships for three ship types serving Australia–Bulk, Roll on/Roll off and Container Vessels. The scheme for the analysis follows that of Goss (1974).
