PortEconomics suppports the second edition of the European Conference on Shipping, Intermodalism and Ports – ECONSHIP 2015, to be held in Chios Greece, 24-27 June 2015.
Following the successful first edition of 2011, ECONSHIP 2015 invites researchers to submit papers on the theme “Shipping and Ports at Crossroads: Competition, Global Sourcing and Regulatory Challenges”.
Competitiveness, efficiency and effectiveness stand as core targets of today’s corporate strategies of shipping and ports, and mark relevant regulatory initiatives at national, peripheral and global level. Meanwhile, shipping companies and port service providers jockey to exploit global sourcing opportunities in order to compete effectively at a global scale.
The continuous development and formation of global players, and the positive and sceptical regulatory approaches that are associated with these trends are indicative. Financial sources, human resources, operational strategies, performance measurements, horizontal and vertical integration practices, environmental considerations, technological advancements, transport systems integration, and not least marine and maritime education systems, are all reassessed under the prism of a maritime sector speedily adopting new structures.
These developments will be the focal themes of ECONSHIP 2015, aiming at advancing knowledge on the driving forces and the potential shapes of modern forms of competition, and global sourcing in shipping, ports, and related intermodal transport systems, as well as on the implications and regulatory challenges associated with them.
