This special issue seeks to provide a state-of-the-art perspective on how the operations and management of ports and shipping can lead to improved environmental performance. This includes, but is not limited to, the development of new theories and models, the proposal of new measures and the analysis of existing and potential implementations.
The proposed special issue covers all aspects of the operations and management of ports and shipping that lead to improved environmental performance. The main objectives of this special issue include: 1) how to characterize and model the operations of ports and shipping when fuel consumption and emissions are the focus; 2) how to improve or optimize the operations and management of ports and shipping for environmental improvements; 3) how to design policies that motivate environmental improvements in today’s maritime world.
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
Characterizing emissions in maritime operations and management;
Solutions to cutting GHG and other emissions in today’s maritime world;
The application of operations research methods for cutting maritime emissions;
The use of artificial intelligence in cutting emissions in shipping;
Climate adaptation and resilience practice in ports and shipping;
Initiating or analyzing policies for increasing the utilization of cleaner energy;
System planning and operational strategies to improve the operations and management of shipping and ports;
Innovative infrastructure design, deployment and use for environmental improvement in the maritime world;
Data analysis to quantify the energy savings, environmental impact and economic benefits from improved operations and management of shipping and ports;
