Over past decades, the maritime logistics/supply chains have witnessed tremendous growth rates all around the planet, notwithstanding the recent economic downturn. Maritime transportation accounts for the major portion of the international trade and has therefore become a critically important factor for the economic health of many nations. In emerging economies, more new ports have also been developed to tap into the global maritime logistics network.
The global landscape of the maritime industry is changing quite rapidly and this has generated many issues which are worthy of more in-depth research. In particular, topics related to maritime logistics/supply chains have been drawing immense attention of both academia and industry. The objective of the present work book was to reflect the latest developments in the field of maritime logistics and supply chains, and to examine some research issues concerned with quantitative analysis on port competitiveness and decision support for maritime logistics/supply chain systems.
Twelve papers have been selected for publication after a thorough peer review. The papers contained have been sorted into two main groups: regional developments and performance analysis; and the second one is ports and liners operations.
