about this item

As the lifeblood of global economic vitality, global liner shipping contributes significantly to international stability and security. Additionally, as a major global enterprise in its own right, the international shipping industry is a major employer and contributes hundreds of billions of dollars to the global economy annually, thereby increasing gross domestic product in countries throughout the world. Liner vessels carry about 60 percent of the goods by value moved internationally by sea each year.

GlobalLiner Shipping fills a gap in the market for a comprehensive book covering all aspects of liner trade. The industry is going through a period of change, so logistics managers and students need to understand how to deal with the current disruptions. In this groundbreaking book, Lars Jensen covers topics such as network development, supply and demand analysis, collaboration, liner profit and loss, e-commerce, risk management and process management. Each chapter ends with a real-life case study and open ended questions.
