A note on climate change adaptation for seaports: a challenge for global ports, a challenge for global society. (2013)
Journal Article
Becker, A. H., Acciaro, M., Asariotis, R., Cabrera, E., Cretegny, L., Crist, P., …Velegrakis, A. F. (2013). A note on climate change adaptation for seaports: a challenge for global ports, a challenge for global society. Climatic Change, 120, 683-695. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10584-013-0843-z

With 80 % of world trade carried by sea, seaports provide crucial linkages in global supply-chains and are essential for the ability of all countries to access global markets. Seaports are likely to be affected directly and indirectly by climatic cha...

Seaport network performance measurement in the context of global freight supply chains. (2013)
Journal Article
Lam, J. S. L., & Song, D. (2013). Seaport network performance measurement in the context of global freight supply chains. Polish maritime research, 20, 47-54. https://doi.org/10.2478/pomr-2013-0026%2C

A global distribution channel with a reliable freight transport system is essential in the contemporary world economy. Acting as trade facilitators, seaports are important players in the system. The study of the role of ports in supply chain manageme... Read More about Seaport network performance measurement in the context of global freight supply chains..

Evaluating impacts of institutional reforms on port efficiency changes: Ownership, corporate structure, and total factor productivity changes of world container ports (2010)
Journal Article
Cheon, S., Dowall, D. E., & Song, D. (2010). Evaluating impacts of institutional reforms on port efficiency changes: Ownership, corporate structure, and total factor productivity changes of world container ports. Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review, 46, 546-561. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tre.2009.04.001

This paper evaluates how port institutional reforms influenced efficiency gains between 1991 and 2004. We constructed a panel data for port ownership, corporate structure, and port inputs and outputs for 98 major world ports, and we implemented the M...

Typology of long-term port efficiency Improvement paths: malmquist total factor productivity for world container ports. (2009)
Journal Article
Cheon, S., Dowall, D. E., & Song, D. (2009). Typology of long-term port efficiency Improvement paths: malmquist total factor productivity for world container ports. Journal of Infrastructure Systems, 15, 340-350. https://doi.org/10.1061/%28ASCE%291076-0342%282009%2915%3A4%28340%29

The global seaport sector made huge efforts in relation to port reform and technological development since the 1990s. This study attempts to systematically estimate the impacts of these efforts on world ports’ efficiency changes between 1991 and 2004...

Port integration in global supply chains: measures and implications for maritime logistics (2009)
Journal Article
Panayides, P., & Song, D. (2009). Port integration in global supply chains: measures and implications for maritime logistics. International Journal of Logistics Research and Applications, 12, 133-145. https://doi.org/10.1080/13675560902749407

The aim of this article is to define and empirically develop measures of seaport integration in global supply chains and to infer implications for maritime logistics. A literature review identified four key parameters hypothesised to be part of the h... Read More about Port integration in global supply chains: measures and implications for maritime logistics.

Weighting the competitiveness factors for container ports under conflicting interests (2009)
Journal Article
Yeo, G. T., Song, D., Dinwoodie, J., & Roe, M. (2009). Weighting the competitiveness factors for container ports under conflicting interests. Journal of the Operational Research Society, 61, 1249-1257. https://doi.org/10.1057/jors.2009.88

Generally, an evaluation of container port competitiveness is regarded as a multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) problem which involves various stakeholders with conflicting interests. To solve MCDM problems, the analytic hierarchy process (AHP)... Read More about Weighting the competitiveness factors for container ports under conflicting interests.
