Sustainable and Resilient Maritime Business

Call for papers for: Maritime Business Review

Special Issue on “Sustainable and Resilient Maritime Business (SRMB)” of the 10th Asian Logistics Round Table Conference (ALRT 2020)

As part of the International Conference ALRT 2020, a special issue on Sustainable and Resilient Maritime Business (SRMB) is calling for papers. ALRT will be held in Launceston (Australia) from the 19th to the 21st November 2020. The best rated papers from this conference will be selected for the Special Issue.

The area of SRMB has been gaining a new momentum in recent years. Modern maritime business management employs effective sustainable strategies and quick responding mechanisms, which require deep interdisciplinary expertise to ensure successful implementation. To address these issues, ALRT conferences have become an important academic event with a long history, bringing together leading academic scientists, researchers and scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on related topics. ALRT 2019 is organized by the Maritime and Logistics Management under the National Centre for Ports and Shipping at the Australian Maritime College, University of Tasmania. It will be held in Launceston (Australia) from the 19th to the 21st November 2020.

SRMB will provide an interdisciplinary forum for exchange of ideas and discussion of new sustainable and resilient maritime business management. This Special Issue will gather high-quality papers addressing all aspects, not limited to the ones listed below. All works related to maritime business and logistics & supply chain management are welcome.
