Product description


"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." (Dr. Jan Hoffmann, Chief, Trade Facilitation Section, UNCTAD; President, International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME))

"This book is essential reading for all those with an interest in logistics as it is only occasionally that a book of this quality becomes available. Comprehensive, up to date and perceptive it is both informative and a joy to read." (Professor Michael Roe, Chair in Maritime & Logistics Policy, Plymouth Business School)

"Maritime Logistics represents a real tour de force in the comprehensive coverage of the shipping and port industries which it provides." (Professor Kevin Cullinane, Professor of Logistics & Transport Economics, University of Gothenburg)

"This text covers everything that students and industry professionals need to know about maritime logistics. This second edition has been revised with new chapters covering topics such as port-centric logistics, hinterland logistics, global supply chains, maritime transport, and future trends and developments." (Inbound Logistics)

"[A] timely, informative and authoritative look at the global maritime logistics industry, helping explain its history, considering its present-day challenges and operations and casts an eye forward to its future." (Darren Ingram , Darren Ingram Media)
