ANALYSIS OF CONTAINER PORT POLICY BY THE REACTION OF AN EQUILIBRIUM SHIPPING MARKET

In the competitive container cargo transportation market, shipping companies are drastically changing their strategy regarding routing and port choice by the formation of global alliances. In such a situation, the effectiveness of port management policy in persuading container liners to use the port is most important. This paper discusses port management policy in an equilibrium shipping market. A model is proposed to simulate the flow of foreign trade container cargo using game theory. It is used to explain the interaction of port management policy, shipping companies, and shippers.
