Risks Analysis and Efficient Logistics for Maritime Ports and Waterways

In the world of international trade, nearly every business opportunity places a demand on maritime transportation, since it is the most economical and in many situations the only means of transportation. Today, more than 90% of the world’s exports are moved via maritime transportation (UNCTAD-2009). Thus, marine ports (all of which have channels for navigating vessels) and waterways are critical for the safe and secure movement of goods in the global supply chain. In view of this, we propose to develop computationally efficient mathematical risk analysis algorithms for maritime-born security and safety risks for port and waterway infrastructure. Read more…
