Special Issue "Aviation Logistics and Supply Chain Management"
A special issue of Aerospace (ISSN 2226-4310).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2019).
Interests: air transport; transport logistics; transport development studies
Aviation logistics and supply chain management are the key issues encountered when it comes to air transport, for passengers, as well as cargo. Operators need to devise plans and find solutions to improve the efficiency of aviation logistics and supply chain management through cost minimization and other measures. Driven by information and communications technology, supported by data-driven optimization for decision making, global supply chain management now plays a crucial role in enterprises and industries.
This Special Issue addresses these concerns by inviting papers relevant to aviation logistics and supply chain management, including airport operation, management, ground handling, security, emergency, safety issues and logistics performance, international logistics, global supply chain management, coordinated efforts in supply chain management, facility location, and network configurations. This is an opportunity for academics and practitioners working in the fields of aviation logistics and supply chain management to publish their original research and review articles.
