Book Description :

Globalisation and the rapid increase in world trade in the past decade have contributed to greater demand for international transport and logistics and, consequently, the expansion of the maritime industry. The dramatic changes in the mode of world trade and cargo transportation make it more important than ever to have a clear understanding of the way in which freight is transported by sea and the role of ports in this exchange. At the cutting edge in its assessment of the industry, Maritime Logistics covers the whole scope of maritime logistics and examines latest logistical developments within the port and shipping industry. With a range of new international contributors, this new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. There are new chapters on port centric logistics, hinterland logistics and global supply chains, maritime transport and logistics as a trade facilitator, and future trends and developments. Written by a team of international experts with over fifty years' experience in the field, Maritime Logistics provides a truly global perspective. The book covers everything that students of logistics, as well as those working within the industry, need to know about maritime logistics, including shipping lines, containers, tankers, dry bulk, port-centric logistics, and much more. The book includes contributions from leading practitioners and academics in the field. The new edition includes a variety of new contributors, including: A. Michael Knemeyer, Associate Professor of Logistics, Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University; John P.

Book Description :

The enterprise-focused framework of supply chain, which an overwhelming majority of books on supply chain management (SCM) have adopted, falls short in explaining recent developments in the real world, especially the so-called Wal-Mart model, in which a 'factory' is a virtual logistics network of multiple international manufacturing firms. The book fills the gap and examines supply chain and transport logistics. The book also includes the development of a unified methodological framework which underpins all the characteristics of the interrelationship between supply chain management and logistics. It covers many aspects of the important and innovative developments well. The book offers a unique coverage of integrated logistics of navigation, aviation and transportation. The book not only answers the urgent need for a book on supply chain management and transport logistics but also highlights the central role of supply chain logistics in the emerging fields of sustainable (green), humanitarian and maritime supply chains and the importantance of studying supply chain management together with transport logistics. It also explains the difference between supply chain logistics and manufacturing logistics. It is a useful reference for those in the industry as well as for those taking related courses.

Book Description :

Maritime container transport accounts for approximately 90 percent of global trade volumes. Largest container vessels represent challenges for container ports, such as the required draft of 15.5 meters. In order to be competitive, many ports try to integrate in global supply chains. Furthermore, environmental issues play a growing role in the maritime business. Hence, this book concentrates on CO2 emissions from maritime supply chains involving European deepwater ports. This research investigates carbon dioxide emissions of maritime container transport from Asia into the European hinterland through new built German Jade-Weser-Port (JWP) compared to the deepwater ports of Rotterdam, Antwerp, Zeebrugge and Trieste. Furthermore, these ports are compared on the basis of competitive factors such as port characteristics and hinterland connectivity. This book also addresses measures for CO2 reduction in maritime door-to-door container transport.

Furthermore the deepwater ports are compared on the basis of competitive factors such as hinterland connectivity. The thesis also addresses CO2 reduction measures for the maritime door-to-door container transport. Maritime container transport accounts for approximately 90 percent of global trade volumes.

Furthermore, environmental issues play a growing role in the maritime business. Thus, the dissertation concentrates on CO2 emissions from maritime supply chains. Carbon emissions are calculated by applying activity-based approach for road emissions and energy-based method for ship emissions. The online carbon auditing tool "Ecotransit" is used for carbon auditing of rail and inland waterway emissions. For ports an average value of 17.5 kg CO2/TEU is assumed. The main findings are that north-eastern part of Germany and northern region of Eastern Europe can be reached under minimum CO2 emissions from Jade-Weser-Port. However, JWP provides the worst hinterland connection compared to othe

Book Description :

This book belongs to the Port Economics and Global Supply Chain Management strand of the Palgrave Studies in Maritime Economics book series, commissioned by Hercules Haralambides. This book addresses the strategic alignment between port authorities and their supply chain partners, with a focus on governance challenges. Many port (authority) managers are engaged in efforts to improve their strategic alignment with business partners in their proximate geographic region, yet the economic objectives pursued can vary widely. These objectives can include improvements in port competitiveness and stability of traffic flows, as well as better access to scarce resources such as land and capital, or simply more control over the logistics chain. Using various Benelux seaports as case studies, the authors of this volume show that improving strategic alignment can involve a wide variety of different governance choices, ranging from top-down to bottom-up alliance formation, from project-driven to multi-activity collaboration, and from long-term contracting to full-fledged mergers. This book with state-of-the-art insight on modern port governance will be of interest to port managers around the globe, as well as to lecturers and students in maritime educational programs.

Book Description :

The importance of maritime shipping for the Swiss economy is not reflected in official statistics of the Swiss Federal Customs Administration – high-sea vessels are not registered as a mode of transport for the import and export of goods to and from Switzerland. Thus, the primary study objective is to highlight the importance of high-sea shipping for the trade flows of the Swiss Confederation. Therefore, quantities and values of Switzerland’s maritime trade flows will be estimated differentiated by commodity groups and vessel types including trends in the maritime sector relevant for the Swiss Confederation. More than 90% of the total volume of intercontinental trade between Switzerland and its trading partners is carried by ocean-going vessels. High-sea shipping dependency is not to be reduced to intercontinental trade flows only. Due to upstream and downstream transport stages that are a directly part of a supply chain configuration, substantial proportions of continental foreign trade depend on high-sea shipping as well. Die Bedeutung der maritimen Schifffahrt für die Schweizer Volkswirtschaft spiegelt sich nicht in offiziellen Statistiken der Eidgenössischen Zollverwaltung – Hochseeschiffe werden nicht als Verkehrsträger für den Im- und Export von Waren in und aus der Schweiz registriert. Primäres Ziel der Studie ist es daher, die Bedeutung der Hochseeschifffahrt für die Handelsströme der Schweizerischen Eidgenossenschaft aufzuzeigen. Hierzu werden Mengen und Werte der maritimen Handelsströme der Schweiz differenziert nach Warengruppen und Schiffstypen abgeschätzt und relevante Trends im maritimen Sektor aufgezeigt. Im Interkontinentalhandel zwischen der Schweiz und ihren Handelspartnern werden mehr als 90% des Gesamttransportvolumens werden per Seeschiff abgewickelt. Die Abhängigkeit der Schweiz von der Hochseeschifffahrt ist nicht nur auf interkontinentale Handelsströme zu reduzieren. Aufgrund der vor- und nachgelagerten Transportstufen, die unmittelbar Teil einer Supply-Chain-Konfiguration sind, sind zudem erhebliche Anteile des kontinentalen Außenhandels von der Hochseeschifffahrt abhängig.
