That is also similar to my question, why is it effective?. If commercial ships are accompanied by military ships, then they have protection in case the enemy wishes to attack… them.

it is convoys
During World War I, the "convoy system" was developed by theBritish Empire as an attempt to overcome the terrible lossessuffered at the hands of German submarines. Grouping me…rchant shipsinto large or small convoys proved to be a decisive tactic, aslosses dropped considerably once the convoys were organized alongwith protective escorts of "guardian" warships.

Convoys are used for many things. They can be used to deliver goodsto areas that are in need. They can also be used in militaryregions as protection.
It was a defense mechanism against German submarine warfare.

One, the convoy system allowed the British to limit their number of losses. Second, without the convoy system, the Allies lost one out of every 10 ships. With the convoy, the …number of ships lost changed to 2 out of 100 ships.

The convoy system was an improvement but it was not perfect. Since the U Boats were underwater it was still hard to protect all the ships. But, they had little choice but to u…se the convoy system. They did not have the technology we have today to find subs so the convoys were as effective as they could be given that the U Boats would strike in the dark.

A convoy is a group of vehicles that transport goods. It is usually used to refer to military groups. During World War 2, convoys of ships transited the Atlantic carrying g…oods and supplies to Great Britain and Russia. Convoys were large groups of merchant vessels with a military escort to protect them from the German submarines.
The convoy system greatly protected the allies by making a virtual juggernaut. Before the convoy system was initiated, merchant ships would go in and out of ports widely seper…ated so as to escape attack. However, this idea failed to protect ships from German U-Boats. By using convoys, armored ships and merchant ships would mix, producing two things. One, the confusion of which ship is less protected by armor, and second, the spreading of ships so as to protect against any angle of invasion. By doing this, attacks were almost always fortified with additional ships from around the convoy, while still keeping the merchant ships safe, and making a massively powerful force agains the smaller and more agile U-Boats.
