The purpose of this paper is to study the subgroup embedding properties of S-semipermutability, semipermutability, and seminormality. Here we say H is S-semipermutable (resp. semipermutable) in a group Gif H permutes which each Sylow subgroup (resp. subgroup) of G whose order is relatively prime to that of H. We say H is seminormal in a group G if H is normalized by subgroups of G whose order is relatively prime to that of H. In particular, we establish that a seminormal p-subgroup is subnormal. We also establish that the solvable groups in which S-permutability is a transitive relation are precisely the groups in which the subnormal subgroups are all S-semipermutable. Local characterizations of this result are also established.
