Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the development of digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and big data, as well as the increasing demand for efficient, safe and green services in the shipping industry, higher requirements have been put forward for innovative and smart management of shipping.

Aim and Scope:
The purpose of this topic is to produce the latest research results on maritime and shipping management innovation and promote further research and discussion on linking the theoretical research of maritime and shipping management with practical application.

History:
Maritime and shipping transport is an indispensable voice of the global trade and economy, as the primary transportation of goods worldwide. Ports are indispensable nodes of logistics involving many nations and stakeholders. Experimentation of new technologies in maritime and shipping increases the efficiency of shipping operations and management processes, and encourages automation, flexibility and the exchange of information between the various actors involved in global trade and logistics supply chains. In return, this makes it possible to maximize the economic, social, and environmental functions of maritime and shipping transport and the development of trade and shipping systems to complement existing infrastructures, extend global trade connectivity, and improve the environmental sustainability of maritime and shipping transport.

Cutting-Edge Researches:
digital transformation; artificial intelligence; Internet of Things; big data;
machine learning and intelligent optimization; Smart shipping and port management; autonomous operations; Intelligence navigation systems; Green shipping

What kind of paper we are looking for:
The Special Issus includes various topics related to maritime and shipping management, such as: i) shipping business management, ii) maritime economics, iii) port management, iv) maritime risk management, v) digital transformation, vi) green shipping vii) maritime trade, etc.

Seaports function as lifeline systems in maritime transportation, facilitating critical processes like shipping, distribution, and allied cargo handling. These diverse subsystems constitute the Port Infrastructure System (PIS) and have intricate functional interdependencies. The PIS is vulnerable to several external disruptions, and the impact of COVID-19 is severe and unprecedented in this domain. Therefore, this study proposes a novel general port safety framework to cope with recurring hazards and crisis events like COVID-19 and to augment PIS safety through a multi-state failure system. The PIS is divided into three critical subsystems: shipping, terminal, and distribution infrastructure, thereby capturing its functional interdependency and intricacy. A dynamic input–output model is employed, incorporating the spatial variability and average delay of the disruption, to determine the PIS resilience capacity under the stated disruptions. This study simulates three disruption scenarios and determines the functional failure capacity of the system by generating a functional change curve in Simulink. This study offers viable solutions to port managers, terminal operators, and concerned authorities in the efficient running of intricate interdependent processes and in devising efficient risk control measures to enhance overall PIS resilience and reliability. As part of future studies, given the difficulty in obtaining relevant data and the relatively limited validation of the current model, we aim to improve the accuracy and reliability of our model and enhance its practical applicability to real-world situations with data collected from a real-world case study of a PIS system.
