About the book

Port Management looks at the numerous types of business interactions that occur at active ports. These include cooperating with other ports, coordinating deliveries with ships, overseeing port development, advertising and promotion, and enforcing security and environmental protection initiatives. Including research, practical insights and case studies, this book looks at quantitative methods and market analysis, maritime logistics, port planning and pricing, and commercial law.

Port Management covers all the main aspects of management, administration and policy, and fills existing gaps in the literature in this area. Edited by two leading academics who have conducted research for the Department of Transport and the United Nations, this text is international in scope and includes research-based findings from a global team of contributors. It provides fascinating insights into the geography, economics, politics and trade involved in port management. Online supporting resources include lecture notes, lesson plans and PowerPoints.

More about Anthony Beresford

There are hardly any authentic textbooks on port management that can be referred to by the academic community and by practising managers in the maritime sector. This void has been very effectively filled by Port Management. Extremely well written by a select group of 40 experts, this is an eminently readable book with a balanced mix of port operations and policy analysis; it also provides critical assessment of policy effectiveness, governance and regulatory issues. Port Management is a must-read text in the field.
