Let us take Atlantska plovidba for example:  It was a shareholding company that was founded in Dubrovnik in 1955  By 2001, the fleet had a capacity of 780,000 dwt and the company started to diversify its operations into other industries  In 2005 a charter airline company was founded  The company owned three hotels and a number of camps and restaurants Unit 32

5  Registered business activities of Atlantska plovidba also included  scientific R&D,  market analysis and public research,  business and management consulting,  financial and book-keeping business,  tax consultancy,  secretarial and translator services,  import and export of vessels, marine and office equipment, etc. Unit 32

6  Delegation of responsibility is of vital importance in large shipping companies with diversified business activities  As a centralised organisation tends to discourage initiative, liner companies have tended to set up separate divisions or subsidiaries corresponding to individual trades or services Unit 32
