About the book

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.

More about Photis Panayides

Over most of the last decades, international trade has grown faster than the global economy - and most trade continues to be sea-borne. Even if orders may be placed electronically, the actual movement of the goods still requires ports and ships. Maritime logistics is thus ever more important for any country's development. Understanding contemporary shipping and port management helps businesses and policy makers to lead their companies and countries. This new edition of Maritime Logistics is a timely and important publication, edited and written by some of the most renowned maritime economists.
