Assessment of Efficiency of Marine Logistic Activities

Assessing the effectiveness of policies and management of the port

We study logistics policies to improve safety and efficiency of marine traffic, using our knowledge of marine traffic engineering, and methods of cost-benefit analysis.
We also propose ways to improve the financial efficiency of port management by studying the break-even point of vessel operation costs and profits.

  • Harbor and port development plans
  • Cost-benefit analysis
  • Assessment of ship operation management
