As the official journal of the International Association of Maritime Economists, Maritime Economics & Logistics spans the industry; coverage includes ocean transportation, ports, marine terminals, pricing, maritime logistics and more.
The journal examines the use of highly sophisticated data analysis methods in pricing, logistics and management. Among topics covered are variable pricing in container line revenue management; neural network mathematics for predicting short term tanker freight rates; and detecting maritime smuggling with the aid of classification trees and Bayesian network algorithms. Port management topics include the use of data envelopment analysis to measure the efficiency of port authorities; and decision support systems for crane scheduling in container ports.
In some issues, the journal adds a special section called ‘Policy Perspectives,’ which focuses on strategic policy implications.
