About the book

Maritime logistics has been traditionally regarded as the primary means of transporting parts and finished goods on a global scale. Globalization 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. Maritime Logistics examines the latest developments within the port and shipping industry including the associated risks and threats.

This new edition of Maritime Logistics features chapters on maintenance optimization, supply chain integration and economies of scale within liner shipping and customer service and port performance within port management. The updated content provides a formative approach to learning for both practitioners and students alike. Written by a team of international experts with over fifty years' experience in the field, this book provides a truly global perspective. This book covers everything that students of logistics, as well as those working within the industry, need to know about maritime logistics.
