Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic’s and its various effects onset and effects slowed down global economic growth; however, they also gave international trade a significant chance to progress its digital transformation and boost e-commerce sales. Container shipping costs thus reached five times their pre-pandemic levels in 2021, hitting a record peak in early 2022 and dramatically boosting consumer prices. Logistic supply bottlenecks and a spike in demand for consumer products and e-commerce also contributed to this increase in their use. Due to the ongoing energy crisis, prices have decreased since mid-2022, although they remain high for oil and natural gas tanker cargo. As mentioned in a recent report by a UN agency on maritime transport, “Ships carry over 80 percent of the goods traded globally, with the percentage even higher for most developing countries.” Additionally, as UNCTAD Secretary-General Rebeca Grynspan has elaborated, “we need to learn from the current supply chain crisis and prepare better for future challenges and transitions. This includes enhancing intermodal infrastructure, fleet renewal, and improving port performance and trade facilitation,” meaning green maritime transport and a resilient maritime supply chains are certainly of the essence. As such, we have established a Topic entitled ‘Recent Advances in Green Maritime Transport and Resilient Maritime Supply Chain’ in order discover more possibilities raised by the green maritime transport and resilient maritime supply chains. We are seeking to invite papers focusing on the following topics related to green maritime transport and resilient maritime supply chain, including:

  • Green maritime transport;
  • Resilient maritime supply chain;
  • Resilience for ports and cargo flows;
  • Container supply chain resilience;
  • Shipping industry strategy, operations, and management;
  • Planning, strategy, operations, and management in container ports;
  • Sea transport policy and regulation;
  • Safety and security in maritime;
  • Human capital, education, and training in maritime transport;
  • Sustainability, environment, green and social responsibility of the shipping industry;
  • Intermodal transport and connectivity;
  • Marine ecosystem, marine conservation and fisheries, and marine resource;
  • Maritime law and insurance;
  • Shipping finance and investment;
  • Sea logistics and supply chain management;
  • Artificial intelligence, blockchain, and automatic identification system (AIS) applications in shipping industry.
