about this item

Offering an introduction to recent developments in port and hinterland strategies, operations and related specializations, this book is written by leading experts in the field and illustrated with a variety of case studies and best practice examples. Opening with a broad overview of port definitions, concepts and the role of ports in global supply chains, the first section of the book examines strategic topics, for example port management, governance at different scales, performance, hinterlands and the port-city relationship. The second section covers operational aspects of maritime networks, port networks and land networks. Subjects considered include liner networks, financial aspects and business models, port-industrial clusters, container terminals, intermodality/synchromodality, handling and warehousing. The final section of the book offers perspectives on key issues in port development and management including current concerns on security, sustainability, innovation strategies, transition management and labour issues. Intended for upper-level undergraduate students, this book also provides a useful introduction for postgraduate study and is relevant for industry professionals who are new to the field.
