Port-Centric Logistics

Edition 82 focuses on port-centric logistics, a field that has become increasingly referenced in an age of end-to-end supply chains and digital, interacting ports.

PTI Editor Richard Joy said: “Port-centric logistics is a field that started to gain serious traction in 2018, and while the field hadn’t been established from an academic point-of-view, we had many high-level experts informing us this is a key area for the modern port.

“Since then I’ve been interacting with various figures on the topic, culminating in this e-Journal.

“We’re pleased to offer a rather holistic panorama in this edition, with papers from representatives of ports, port authorities, major operators, and academics.”
