At any rate, each chapter of the book is full of comprehensive bibliographical references that might help readers to carrying out further studies as for specific topics. In addition, every item of information supplied along the book is supported by those references. In this connection, the book has a look of an academic work.
Maritime Logistics was written by many hands, although Drs. Song and Panayides were the main members of the team. State-of-the-art concepts are examined throughout the book, so that every reader will certainly observe it is a very updated work. In my view, Maritime Logistics and Cargo Work by D. House are quite useful sources of information in the area of maritime logistics, those books being complementary to each other.
Finally, please note there is a difference of scope between logistics and supply chain management, but sometimes those concepts are used interchangeably. The above book approach, however, is mostly under a supply chain perspective. In chapter 15, a detailed literature review is supplied concerning the SCM approach.
