The 9/11 attacks and other subsequent events have fostered further dimen-sions to port, maritime and supply-chain security with a raft of compulsory and voluntary measures being put in place at both domestic and global levels. However, while much of the academic and the industry’s attention was paid to the deadlines and prescriptive mechanisms for compliance, few or no attempt(s) was made to analyse the frameworks, models and applications of port and supply-chain security regulations and the interplay relationships between the regulatory framework, the risk element and the appropriate operational and management systems.
This book, based on the papers presented at a workshop on risk manage-ment in port operations, logistics, and supply-chain security at Imperial Col-lege London in 2006, offers a first and unique insight into the complex world of port and supply-chain security by combining selected peer-reviewed con-tributions from an international line-up of top-tier academic and professional experts in the field. In particular, the book addresses operational and manage-ment challenges that port, international logistics and supply-chain operators face today in view of the new security regulations and the requirements of increased visibility throughout the supply chain.
The book also offers a rare blend of academic and practitioner contributions covering a wide collection of security models and applications ranging from operational and functional subjects to management and policy issues. Both the structure and content of the book were carefully planned and drafted to encompass the multi-faceted nature and components of the global port and supply-chain security system, including the international maritime and trad-ing systems.
