Port-Focal Logistics and Global Supply Chains

Changes in the global economy have caused significant and far-reaching effects in many areas, including transportation, logistics, and supply chains. As supply chains evolve and adapt to these changes, ports will play a pivotal role. This book examines the challenges that ports, logistics, and supply chains have faced in the past decades, and introduces the concept of port focal logistics. Evolution of ports, industrial organization, government policies, and the role of institutions are explored. Development strategies undertaken by ports, logistics, and supply chain stakeholders are investigated using experiences from developed and developing countries. Case studies from Brazil and India are presented.
