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 promoting the port, and enforcing security and environmental protection initiatives. Port Management includes research, practical insights and case studies in all the areas covering ports, shipping or other maritime related subjects. It 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. It provides fascinating insights into the geography, economics, politics and trade involved in port management.
