Abstract

Global Shipping and Ports, guest edited by Douglas N. Hales and Jasmine Siu Lee Lam Global shipping has experienced huge changes over the past decade. It began with the shipping boom prior to 2007, radically slowing during the recession period, but picking up again in late 2013. But over the past 18 months, shipping has slowed again, while the industry is continuing to increase capacity. This cycle has changed the way in which seaports com- pete and the investments they attract for expansion. Prices for multi-model, intermodal, and port services have cycled accordingly while the demand for high service levels increased. However, since early 2015 global shipping has slowed, creating excess capacity and driving down container shipping prices, some routes as much as 75 percent. This has created a shift in how global seaports compete and their effect on intermodal and multi-modal services. The purpose of this special themed issue on global shipping and ports is to examine how the shift in global trade has affected global shipping and port competitiveness and performance including shipping and port ser- vices, multi-modal shipping, hinterland services, intermodal carriers, and linkages to short-sea shipping, as well as how shipping and ports respond to
