A Global Union for Global Workers - Collective Bargaining and Regulatory Politics in Maritime Shipping

   Subject document was initially prepared and subsequently released to explain all interested readers the way how exactly the global unionism in the shipping industry did appear. Nathan Lillie - the author - argues that the industrial nature of shipping and, particularly, the inter-connected structure of the associated production chains did facilitate the total globalization of union bargaining, together with the trans-nationalization of the union structures. And this has resulted in the global institutions of the collective bargaining as well as effective and active participation in regulatory politics. The present study uses a very broad variety of the reliable and well-respected sources plus effective analytical techniques, basing mainly on the numerous interviews made with several union officials plus other maritime industry people from the different countries. The author of the title has combined the analytical traditions in international relations and industrial relations intending to demonstrate and explain how exactly the actors of industrial relations participate in global political arenas. Though the relationships existing there between the industrial relations and international areas might actually be a bit sharper and more obvious in shipping than elsewhere, subject interactions do have wide and, what shall be noted, constantly increasing importance in all other relevant sectors.

Maritime Transportation - Safety Management and Risk Analysis

   A truly authoritative guidebook expertly addressing the important issues of the maritime safety together with the instruments available to help people bring about improvement. It will be very useful for everyone who are directly engaged in the design or operation of the vessels. The ambition of the author of this volume was to provide the students with a wider and more thorough understanding of all associated safety aspects of the vessel itself and as a transportation system. For Svein Kristensen it was quite important to address the known fact that maritime safety is not something only about the techniques and methods but it also concerns with the knowledge related to the save behavior. Engineers are commonly engaged in operations influencing risks and they may also be assigned the responsibility for the safety management in competition with the relevant time-pressure and economic considerations. The content of the book has been organized in four parts, The first part provides the background, providing the introduction, giving the picture of the maritime risk and addressing the applicable rules and regulations. The second part deals with the statistical methods, including monitoring of the risk. The third part covers the risk analysis, including the estimation of damage, various risk analysis techniques, traffic based models, formal assessment of safety and cost benefit analysis. Finally, the closing part of the book deals with the safety management and operations, covering the human factors, occupational safety matters and accident analysis, safety management and emergency preparedness...

Intelligent Freight Transportation

   The present book is one of the excellent volumes making the popular Control Engineering Series. Nowadays, the freight transportation is really vital to the safe and effective functioning of the human societies and it shall be noted that the transportation chain has already considerably expanded. One of the greatest challenges of the modern cargo transportation industry are increasing capacity at sea ports and movements in the supply chain while attempting to be compliant with the applicable economical, environmental, political and other important requirements. It is becoming quite obvious that the solutions that were traditionally applied in the past, cannot be considered feasible any longer. However, it should also be taken into attention that the latest advances in IT, data management, telecommunications as well as computation tools, could definitely provide the participants of the industry with some new and promising approaches. The publication by Petros Ioannou was released with the declared intention of the author to touch the most important aspects of the majority of issues that usually affect throughput for the large container ports. The book is remarkably well-organized and very reader-friendly; it consists of seventeen chapters addressing the key aspects of intelligent freight transportation, such as port choice and competition, automation of terminals, various environmental issues etc.

A Brief Guide to Understanding Commercial Operations and Cargo Documentation on Oil Tankers

   Here is another useful publication released by the marine professionals of the Marine Insight web resource, and this one is addressing the commercial operations of the oil tankers and associated documentations. It has been compiled by one of the leading marine experts of the community fact. Handling the documentation properly is extremely important since any, even relatively small, mistake could easily result in the significant loss of revenue. Therefore, it is a "must" to be duly familiar with the professional jargon and all documents involved. The publication is divided into seven major chapters dealing with the finding cargo and fixing the ship, important documentation for the terminal and for the surveyor, and at the load and at the discharge port. There is a separate chapter dedicated to the letters of protest, i.e. LoP. In addition to that, a Glossary providing main terms and definitions supplements the publication. This book will be very useful for anyone involved in making arrangements in the field of the oil transportation by sea. The amount as well as quality of the material provided in it makes the publication of great interest for any maritime business professional as it allows them to make proper decisions affecting the effectiveness of such deals.

Container Port Production and Economic Efficiency

   Properly conducted and efficient measurement always plays a very important role in all kinds of production. The team of authors of this book made an attempt to analyze the relationship between three factors - ownership, competition and, finally, port efficiency by means of traditional theories and empirical examination. With the ongoing globalization of the world economy, the importance of the container port industry is increasing. The research conducted by the authors was mainly motivated by the existing contrast between the importance of today's container port industry and a very limited number of thorough scientific researches of the economic theories underpinning it. Most part of such theories is based simply on the assumptions and shall be investigated much more thoroughly. Another motivating factor was the importance of the efficiency measurement and lack of such researches in the industry in question. This publication consists of seven chapter, with first and last ones being introduction and conclusion, correspondingly. The main body of the book is telling readers about the economic theory of container port production, describes some of the alternative approaches to the measurement of the efficiency, provides model specification and data, as well as empirical analysis and results. Numerous appendices provide some required supplementary info.

Commercial Ship Surveying

   This book provides readers with a necessary guidance on the whole survey process - they will know what shall be done to prepare, and what exactly would constitute good practice; all info presented in the publication is completely detailed, making the process able to be executed as quickly and efficiently as possible. In addition to the process of conducting the survey, some supplementary topics have been described in this book - such topics include the ships likely encountered, the rigging and gear, as well as the required special techniques. The author performed an excellent and thorough research, providing numerous practical examples and photo reference materials; you will understand not only what happens during the marine surveys but also how the ship officers and marine surveyors are expected to perform those surveys. This book ensures that the readers clearly understand each step of the surveying process. In fact, it is the first work to describe the on/off-hire and bunker surveys so comprehensively and, at the same time, in a very clear and easy to understand way. The publication includes numerous images and illustrations to clarify the key concepts outlines by the author. We would highly recommend this book to anyone who is conducting marine surveys or planning to get involved in such activities in the future. Apart from theory, the book is full of valuable practical examples.

Green Shipping Management

   Environmentally friendly operations have been widely discussed. As transport service providers that facilitate trade flows in the global supply chain, many shipping firms have begun to respond to environmental concerns by embracing green shipping practices to green their operations. GSPs are environmental management practices undertaken by shipping firms in performing shipping activities. GSPs include calculating the carbon footprint of shipping routes and using alternative shipping equipment with the aim to reduce environmental damage in transporting cargoes. An example is the operations of River Shuttle Containers, a service provided by the CMA CGM to transfer containers between main and feeder ports by ships that have a higher carrying capacity than trucks. Compared with the use of trucks, the use of feeder ships to provide shuttle services reduces carbon emissions...

Maritime Governance - Speed, Flow, Form, Process

   This book examines the controversies that surround governance and policy-making in the light of globalisation and with specific reference to the most globalised of all industries—the maritime sector and international shipping in particular. It forms part two of a three-part consideration of the issues that underlie the problems faced by the maritime sector which are manifested in the death, injury, environmental degradation and inefficiency that characterises the industry. In turn, these can be represented as three dimensions. Dimension 1 is the situation as it exists for maritime governance and policy-making and was considered in detail in the earlier volume—Maritime Governance and Policy-Making (Roe 2013). The impact of globalisation upon international shipping was analyzed and the inadequacies of the current hierarchical structure characterised by four features was assessed: the excessive significance still attributed to the nation-state in maritime governance; the domination of anachronistic institutions; the limited range of stakeholders; and the predominant influence of shipowners.

Logistics Management and Strategy - Competing through the Supply Chain

   It is a real pleasure to introduce such a quality text as Logistics Management and Strategy, now in its third edition, which helps to enhance our understanding of this important area of business today. It is a field that is rapidly gaining importance and focus as businesses like Reckitt Benckiser address the challenge of meeting increasingly demanding customer expectations in all five continents. Reckitt Benckiser is rightly famous for the excellence of its products - but product excellence must be supported by logistics excellence so that a broad range is always available for the end-consumer to buy. One challenge is obviously to ensure this availability to the consumer while complying with the requirements of trade customers. Another challenge is to achieve all of this at a low cost in order to be able to offer products to the consumer at reasonable prices. Answering these challenges is the aim of the Reckitt Benckiser network and, more specifically, of our logistics organisation. At Reckitt Benckiser we describe ourselves as a 'truly global company passionately delivering better solutions to consumers, with operations in 60 countries, sales in 180 countries and net revenues in excess of £5 billion'. The logistics task in fulfilling our objective, with such a business scope, is immense. We have 44 factories around the world and produce several hundreds of different products from food to home and personal care. We have grown by over 70% over the last five years, which poses further challenges for our logistics systems and people to meet. On the one hand, we need to optimise our systems and minimise costs; on the other hand, we must support the growth of the business and ensure product and process innovation. For us to succeed, it is becoming increasingly important to excel in the management of logistics, which becomes a strategic function and a source of differentiation and of competitive advantage. This means that managers in all parts of the business must understand their impact on, and role in, the logistics task.

Dry Docking and Shipboard Maintenance - A Guide for Industry

   The shipping and clocking industries are comparable to two sides of the same coin, each side of the coin being dependent on the other for its very existence. The seafarers, within the different sectors of the marine industry, always need the experience and attributes of the shipyard and its drydocking facilities, while the docking fraternity provide the safety and security crutch to keep the ships well maintained and classed. This book by D. J. House is solely dedicated to the drydocking of vessels. The author did his best to address such the important areas as dry dock operations, types of the docks, proper procedures to follow when drydocking the ship, safety procedures, dry dock stability; in addition, docking and marine measurement terminology as well as conversion equivalents of common units are provided. Last chapters of the book cover dry dock legislation and material/steelwork management.

Annual Report on the Development of the Indian Ocean Region (2015)

   Currently, the basis of the revival of world economy is still unsteady with the risks of economic downturn. The developed economies of USA, Europe, and Japan and the emerging market economies represented by China and India are both faced with the pressure to seek the momentum mechanism for economic growth to resuscitate or stabilize economy. From the perspective of maintaining economic growth rate, the divergence among the economies is quite salient. The impetus to promote the real economy through international trade and OFDI is quite insufficient. For both the developed economies and the developing economies, they are faced with the challenge to adjust the industrial structure and further economic reform to prevent the economy from declining. To a certain extent, this is both the "cause" brought by the globalization and also the "effect" of the globalization of economy. Faced with the globalization, some are happy and some are worried. The globalization against the background of the entire world not only enables an unstoppable multipolar trend in the world, but also makes the Golden Age of sea right gone forever. As a matter of fact, this world has never lacked in the impetus to progress, and what the world lacks is only the new cooperation concepts and mechanisms to promote economic growth in different eras and at different stages of development...

Selling the Sea - An Inside Look at the Cruise Industry

   It's a typical Saturday morning in July. Americans all over the country are heading off on their one-week or two-week vacations. In New York, men and women wearing white gloves and dressed in the navy blue crew uniforms of the Queen Mary 2 are at LaGuardia and Kennedy airports to greet passengers coming in from all over the world. There are the Ow family from Beijing, the Tatas from Bombay, the Ambersons from Liverpool, and the Alberginis from Salt Lake City. All of them, along with a couple thousand others arriving by taxis, cars, and trains, will be boarding the Queen Mary 2 that day to cross the Atlantic to Southampton, England, in six and a half days. For many of them, perhaps one third, this will be their first voyage on any ship ever. For others, it will be their first transatlantic voyage. In Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Port Canaveral, Tampa, and Jacksonville, the Smiths, the Gonzaleses, the Jacksons, the Finches, the you-name-them are lining up to get onto the Carnival Destiny, the Voyager of the Seas, the Norwegian Dream, the Caribbean Princess, or the Celebrity Millennium. They will be sailing to Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Mexico, and dozens of other ports in the Caribbean and beyond. Some will be going through the Panama Canal and disembarking in Los Angeles, where thousands of people will be standing in line for the return trip. In Honolulu, the push to get on Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America will have started, and in Lisbon, Monte Carlo, and Piraeus, passengers will be boarding one of Seabourns luxurious vessels. In fact, with 10 million North American cmisers in 2005, we can say that all over the world, on every one of the seven continents, people will be boarding cruise ships to go somewhere— not just on Saturdays, but every day of the week. In a few short decades, what began in Miami as a small cottage business has turned into a mega-industry, pouring S32 billion into the U.S. economy in 2005 alone....

Port Engineering - Planning, Construction, Maintenance, and Security

   The subject of port engineering is very broad. In fact, this is a blend that encompasses the array of engineering disciplines—civil, structural, geotechnical, hydraulic, naval architecture, and others—not to mention the socioeconomic and environmental aspects, knowledge of which is required to produce a sound design of a modern port or marine terminal. In previous work published in the past 10 to 15 years, I have attempted to address in depth some important subjects related to design and construction of port-related structures and facilities. However, many port-related issues, such as dredging, maintenance, environmental problems, security, and many others, still need to be addressed and presented in a reader-friendly format. This volume has been written by a group of experts in their respective fields of expertise to fill a niche in the existing literature on port and harbor engineering and to provide port designers and operators, particularly those concerned with the design of a port- and harbor-related marine structures, with state-of-the-art information and commonsensc guidelines to port planning, design, construction, and maintenance of port facilities. Contributors to this book have been motivated by the desire not only to share their experiences with their colleagues in the profession, but also to provide those intended to join the field of port engineering with essential knowledge of the subjects related to successful port design, construction, and operation. This is important, because unfortunately, all too frequently, good and less costly engineering solutions are not used, due to a lack of familiarity on the part of the designer. On the other hand, use of a textbook solution to solve the problem may also be counterproductive. Every project is site specific, thus no engineer should be content merely to follow another's designs but should study such designs and use them as a starting point for developing his or her own ideas that are best suitable for the particular site conditions. It must be understood that engineering in general and port engineering in particular is the profession in which knowledge of the mathematics, economics, and physical sciences gained from previous experiences must be applied to the particular project with thorough understanding that in a great many practical cases the problem cannot be solved with mathematical precision; the use of mathematical formulation of a particular problem must be practical and compatible with the data available. The design procedures and guidelines contained in the book are intended to point out the complexity of the particular problem and to illustrate factors that should be considered and included in an appropriate design scenario. They should not be used indiscriminately, particularly not for the detailed design, and should always be combined with good engineering judgment. The book is designed to serve as a guide and a reference for practicing engineers bul is also aimed at engineering students and others seeking to enter the field of port engineering.

Shipping in Arctic Waters - A Comparison of the Northeast, Northwest and Trans Polar Passages

   The main objective of the present study was to compare the shipping conditions along the Northeast, Northwest and Transpolar passages based on a state-of-the-art analysis. To fulfill this objective three core premises were applied. First, the concept of sailing conditions was defined at the intersection of a variety of interacting factors, e.g. geopolitics, global warming, sea ice melting, military affairs, international economic trends, environmental challenges, resources, ocean regulations and law, competing modes of transportation, logistics, corporate governance, jurisdictional matters and lights of indigenous peoples. On this premise, the study is multi- and interdisciplinary in approach and substance. Second, the report is to serve applied purposes - to provide a fact basis both for real-life decisions and for developing a comprehensive multiyear research program to fill in, expand, deepen. broaden and supplement existing knowledge of relevance to shipping in Arctic waters. For this reason, the study is empirical and highly fact-oriented, not least revealing the shortcomings of existing knowledge. Third, the study is to a large extent based on secondary scientific material stemming from research programs like INSROP, ARCOP, JAKSROP, AMSA, etc., all of which have a singular focus on the Northern Sea Route. To compensate for this bias and provide a satisfactory database for all three passages, the research team had to draw on a much broader range of literature - official as well as research based - and to produce its own data through interviews. not least in Canada. In this way, the study became much more of a research program in its own right than originally planned for...

Maritime Power in the Black Sea

   Over the last few decades the broader concept of 'maritime', as opposed to 'sea' or 'naval', power has emerged within the maritime literature to describe the multidimensional and more complex relationship a state has with the seas, oceans and rivers in the twenty-first century. Maritime power, which can be defined as the ability of a state to achieve a political goal or a desired effect using the maritime domain, provides an important means to protect and advance national interests. The ami of this book is to contribute to the ongoing debate about how we might measure or assess a state's maritime power. The ability to use the maritime domain enables states to perform a wide array of maritime tasks and functions at or from the sea. These might include traditional maritime roles such as war-fighting, power projection and maritime diplomacy as well the ability to perform non-military roles such as preserving maritime resources, ensuring the safe transit of cargoes and people at sea. protecting maritime borders, upholding maritime sovereignty, engaging in maritime security operation, rescuing those in peril and preventing the misuse of the oceans, seas and rivers. Maritime power is therefore an important tool of statecraft and is the focus of this book...

Asian Energy Security - The Maritime Dimension

   In the recent decade Asia has become an important player in the world energy market and international energy politics. This can be attributed to Asia's rising energy demand and its initiatives in securing its energy supplies around the world. Meanwhile, a greater number of Asia nations have a higher stake in energy security and security of sea lanes for energy transport. As a result, they have taken a series of precautionary measures. These developments have profound regional and global implications. This volume aims to investigate these important issues. Contributors to the volume survey the external initiatives undertaken by China and Japan, the two largest East Asian energy consumers, to secure energy supplies and maritime energy transport. They also examine strategic areas critical for energy sea lanes for both economic giants, such as the Straits of Malacca, the South China Sea, and the East China Sea. They examine the rationale for Japan's and China's external energy security, as well as their interaction with their neighbors, major oil producers, and littoral states to ensure energy security and energy sea lanes. In addition, they also look at a host of energy-related issues of both giants, which have attracted attention from the region, major powers, and even the United States. These issues include implications of China's and Japan's oil diplomacy for Asia and the United States, China-Japan disputes over the East China Sea, the traffic volume and pattern and the security of the Straits of Malacca, and piracy and maritime terrorism in Asia. The issues being examined also include bilateral and regional cooperation in enhancing maritime security, stipulations of international law of sea regarding the Straits of Malacca and maritime zones in East Asia, and the state of major disputes over territorial waters involving China and Japan. The volume will also discuss theoretical issues related to energy and maritime security in Asia. The most conspicuous issue is the provision of global public goods. Energy security can be regarded as public goods for major oil consumers in Asia, while maritime security is a global good for all nations engaged in trade. Contributors try to come to grips with the issue of how to provide for these global goods while containing unnecessary tensions...
