Global Supply-Chain Securization as Applied to Seaport Operations

A wide variety of risks are faced by organizations, from large multi-firm networks to individual companies, and they require dedicated keen management. The entire logistics network is faced with risks related to both information flow and the physical realm, which have been of new and growing concern since 9/11. Seaports need to accordingly adjust their risk management processes and strategy, since sufficient security level provision is bound to be necessary to be part of the global supply-chain, and because terrorism is now a permanent threat. The author describes a decision-support system project which features an expert-system architecture and is dedicated to container transit security-wise decision making.
