Special Issue on: "Managerial Complexity in Shipping and Port Markets"

Guest Editors:
Dr. F. Parola, University of Naples “Parthenope”, Italy
Prof. Pierre Cariou, Euromed Management Marseille, France

Academics and practitioners largely recognise the increasing managerial complexity that exists in port and shipping businesses. The proliferation of new environmental “variables”, the “pace” of market transformations and innovations and the complexity derived from the emerging interactions between public and private players are driving shipping companies and port actors to reshape their strategies and rethink their own business models.

Indeed, the traditional paradigms of competition co-exist with multi-layer forms of cooperation, leading to numerous forms of co-opetition among players. Also, port authorities are redefining their vision and missions to focus on and stimulate value creation. In this regard, scholars are called to broaden the current knowledge by providing in-depth analyses and contributions.

This special issue aims to collect recent original contributions related to managerial complexity in shipping and port markets. It will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2013 International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME) Conference on “Managing complexity in shipping and port markets: firms' business models, co-opetitive games and innovative public-private interactions” (IAME 2013; see, but we also strongly encourage researchers who are unable to participate in the conference to submit papers for this call.
