Logistics by Ship


According to Carbone and De Martino, a port is an entity involved in delivering value to the end consumer. A requirement for good port performance is the ability to compete through cargo handling in addition to connectivity with the overall supply chain. The types of logistics entities in each port are different, making coordination between them is difficult. In each of these relationships, the operators of a specific port create a logistical value, which relates to the efficient and effective receipt of goods for consumers. (Lee, E.S. & Song, D.W. (2010). Knowledge management for maritime logistics value: discussing conceptual issues. Maritime Policy and Management. Vol. 37 No. 6, p. 226-242)) During the last decade there have been three trends in the development of logistics: integration; specialization; and innovation. This article explores recent studies concerning supply chain integrations designed to create value for consumers. This is followed by a discussion of studies exploring developments from logistics coverage to supply chain management, in order to identify the predominant directions currently being promoted in ports with regards to value creation for consumers, especially consumers of goods transported by sea. Finally, the study considers the value created by port logistics in Indonesia.
