The maritime industry is a worldwide area of work where critical decisions are made in critical situations. The fact that decision-making is based on a scientific and mathematical basis has been in academic authorities' attendance area for the last five decades. In this study, a literature review has been conducted on the use of decision-making techniques in maritime practices. In the literature survey, Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) methods have been examined, studies in Turkey and the International area carded; weights, distributions, usage reasons, advantages, and disadvantages of methods determined based on studies have been comparatively studied. The main aim of this paper is to statistically compare the quality and quantity of the papers published on the decision-making techniques used in maritime in Turkey and the International area. In addition to MCDM techniques, other mathematical methods used in shipping are also included in the study.
