Maritime transport is composed of maritime shipping and port dimensions. Areas of focus include establishing a vision for the future of maritime transport; identifying the innovative technologies, business models and policies that will drive change; overcoming barriers to innovation; and establishing governance structures at the global and national levels to foster the innovations that our societies need for a more sustainable and better performing future transport system.
This special issue aims at addressing these interesting research issues in the field of shipping, port and maritime logistics and management.
The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Advanced Logistics and Transport (ICALT’2015), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Government policy on gender and entrepreneurship
- Decision support systems in shipping
- Freight and commodity market modelling
- Maritime business and economics
