- new chapters at the geography of sea exchange; exchange conception and specialized cargoes
- updated chapters at the service provider fleet shipbuilding, recycling and the regulatory regime
- a a lot revised bankruptcy at the demanding situations and pitfalls of forecasting.
With over 800 pages, two hundred illustrations, maps, technical drawings and tables Maritime Economics is the delivery industry’s such a lot entire textual content and reference resource, when closing as one reviewer positioned it “a very readable book”.

The pointed out demanding situations to intermodal delivery and logistics are used to illustrate how competing port and inland thoughts can inhibit the mandatory methods of integration required to underpin winning intermodal delivery. The e-book concludes with a glance on the way forward for institutional version which can improve the capability of freight actors to have interaction with intermodal delivery advancements.
