Port Sustainability and Ocean’s Carrier Network Problem (OCNP): PortEconomics member Pierre Cariou along with Lucie Sislian and Anicia Jaegler (Kedge Business School) review the literature of these interrelated concepts in their latest port study.
The past literature did not establish a clear relationship between these two concepts, as the sustainability concept is a relatively recent approach in the maritime literature, and still a gap exists in this field. This study review the port sustainability concept and then relate it to the OCNP, in order to reach a conceptual framework which will integrate port sustainability indicators in the OCNP. This achieved by interrelating them using the triple bottom line concept and focusing solely on the environmental approach.
The port study, published in the 19th issue of the scholarly journal Research in Transportation Business & Management, and the authors’ version can be freely downloaded here.
