Port Operations, Planning and Logistics
Port Operations and Logistics is designed to offer a comprehensive and detailed analysis of world port systems through applying both theoretical and practical approaches to port operations, management, and policy. The author draws from a rare combination of extensive cross-management professional experience and established multi-disciplinary academic expertise to provide a comprehensive and structured publication that cuts across different research fields: economics, engineering, operations, technology, management, strategy, and policy. The book also encompasses various port topics including design, planning, operations, ICT and technology applications, investment and financing, pricing and asset management, marketing and strategy, institutional organization, contracts and regulations, safety and security, and environmental management. Each is supported with case studies, practical examples, and illustrations of the latest developments in the field.
