Product description

Review

"Maria Burns has done it again! In this first class Port Management and Maritime resource book, she demonstrates once more her ability to blend practical and useful information into a compilation of real-world commercial scenarios. This innovative approach will make this book a scientific and commercial success!"
Niels A. Aalund, Senior Vice President, West Gulf Maritime Association; and Chairman, Houston Maritime Museum

"Professor Burns has meticulously authored a book with knowledge and enthusiasm. She efficiently takes the pulse of the supply chain, consisting of canals, ports, ship owners, and the global logistics networks, in an effort to identify the current and future trends. ... manages to bring together a plethora of disciplines, sciences, and concepts, and explain the reason for the industry’s developments over different time periods. Under the principle that history repeats itself, her comprehensive examination of past trends can be used by the readers as a useful tool to speculate potential future developments."
―Yira A. Flores Naylor, Communications and Historic Documentation Section, Panama Canal Authorities

"In such a hectic and complicated world of global trade, Professor Burns succeeds in doing the almost impossible―giving a powerful and up-to-date description and forecast on the subject, that no port manager at any level can afford to miss."
―Mendi Zaltzman, CEO, Port of Haifa, Israel

"... maps out the multidisciplinary practices of port management and operations, as well as the distinctive contribution of the shipping industry to the global economy, through trade and development. ... The outstanding contribution of this book is to reveal the role of seaports as a critical component of modern supply chains, enhanced with guidance into the significance of strategic and tactical port planning, modern maritime professions, working practices, and trends that are frequently only vaguely understood, if not completely overlooked. ... a well-written expository book of port management and shipping practices, which is truly accessible to everyone."
―Nicky Pappadakis, President Emeritus, Intercargo

"The author extols the key role of the shipping industry and ports as a point of creation, investment, and as a tool of prosperity and job opportunity in general. An approach of this kind is innovative, informative, and of great value for maritime professionals―I highly recommend this book!"
Captain Sotiris Shinas, Marine Manager of EURONAV and Deputy Marine Division Director of CERES Hellenic Shipping
