Port Operations, Planning and Logistics (Lloyd’s Practical Shipping Guides) 2nd Edition
Port Operations Planning and Logistics offers a comprehensive and detailed analysis of world port systems through applying both theoretical and practical approaches to port planning, operations, logistics, management and policy. The book is designed to reach out to a wide audience including port practitioners, academics, students, shipping and logistics professionals, transport planners and policy makers. The author draws from a rare combination of an international port experience and an established academic expertise to provide a structured book that cuts across different research fields including operations, economics, logistics, strategy, and policy.
Following the success of the 1st edition, this enlarged and substantially rewritten 2nd edition explores several port topics; planning, institutional organisation, operations, logistics, investment and financing, pricing, competition and strategy, policy and regulation, ICT and technology, labour and training, safety and security and environmental management, across various types of ports and terminals. With over 500 pages and 120 tables, figures and illustrations, this 2nd edition covers 20 chapters (updated and new) each supported with case studies, practical examples and references on the latest developments in the field.
