Special Issue Information
Dear Colleagues,
The spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic severely affected the shipping industry. This resulted in many shipping companies locking down their operations. The situation has recently improved as some companies have started their shipping services again. However, revitalization of the industry remains challenging.
Maritime transport contributes more than 80% of global trading volumes. Maritime logistics and port management are the mechanisms that boost the economy, which are receiving increasing attention from many sectors. The pandemic has created an unprecedented challenge to maritime logistics and port management worldwide. This has led to an increase in the significance of research on maritime logistics and port management post pandemic. Research has explored the operation of maritime logistics and port management post pandemic. This Special Issue in Sustainability aims to publish state-of-the-art research on maritime logistics and port management in the post-pandemic era.
The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
Port management;
Port governance;
The resilience of maritime logistics and ports post pandemic;
Maritime and port sustainability;
Dynamics of port production and operation;
Maritime logistics risk management;
Port economics;
Container positioning in liner shipping;
