The purpose of this book is to investigate the impact that varying degrees of subsidiary embeddedness has on competence development, subsidiary evolution and perception of clusters in Norwegian maritime subsidiaries located in the YRD area maritime cluster. Based on relevant theoretical perspectives from the above-mentioned fields of study, we have developed a research model serving as a base for seven propositions. A qualitative study based on four interviews has been conducted with respondents with of substantial knowledge and experience in the YRD (Yangtze River Delta) area maritime cluster. In order to support or contradict the research propositions, we have analyzed our empirical findings to reveal patterns and connections between our theoretical perspectives and the data gathered. We also searched for similarities and differences in respondents statements.

The Dynamics of Short Sea Shipping
86,75 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book belongs to the Port Economics and Global Supply Chain Management strand of the Palgrave Studies in Maritime Economics book series, commissioned by Hercules Haralambides. This book discusses the main drivers that affect the introduction and growth of short sea shipping services. It describes and analyses the main operational concepts of short sea shipping and introduces relevant administrative and strategic approaches that enable its sustainable execution. Short Sea Shipping (SSS) comprises freight and passenger mobility by waterborne transport at a limited range, without crossing an ocean. Being a direct competitor to land-based transport modes, it uses ports and inland waterways to complement traditional transportation systems, increase capacity, improve flexibility, and contribute towards the goal of sustainable mobility. The reader will be introduced to various aspects of short sea shipping including benefits and shortfalls, relevant regulations and policies, and the applicability of short sea services within a given case or scenario.

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1, Vienna University of Economics and Business (Informationsverarbeitung & Prozessmanagement), language: English, abstract: Changing economic conditions and increasing competition forced many companies to extend their supply, production and distribution networks towards global approaches. This led to an increase in the importance of freight transport. In consequence, freight carriers are currently required to provide either cost or time efficient solutions to a wide range of industries. In order to select appropriate modes of transport or suitable carriers, enterprises must consider their performance beforehand. Moreover, carriers must be precisely aware of their own performance at any time. Consequently, performance measurement and the definition of suitable performance metrics plays an essential role in freight transport. In practice, companies have to face an extensive variety of indicators that can be used to assess performance in freight transport. Studies prove that there is lack of consistency in the usage of metrics. At the same time, researchers have to cope with wide range of available literature that discusses performance evaluation in freight transportation which is, though, often limited to specific areas of application. In this thesis a structured literature review (SLR) is carried out which has the objective to systematically find out how companies measure performance in intermodal, road, rail, air, and maritime freight transport. The conceptual findings of this SLR provide a list of 1742 metrics from the literature that can either be applied for one or several modes of freight transport. In addition, 47 different ways how KPIs can be classified are identified. The SLR proves that operational performance indicators mainly regard time, distance and available equipment. Strategic metrics focus on costs levels, the change of costs over time, ratios, fleet characteristics, environmental performance and market developments. The findings of this thesis are beneficial to practitioners because they provide guidance on how to appropriately select, classify and assess performance metrics. Furthermore, academics benefit from a structured overview on available knowledge across the literature.

Fishing, Mobility and Settlerhood
92,07 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This multi-sited island ethnography illustrates how the embattled politics of (im)mobility, belonging, and patronage among coastal fishing communities in Sri Lanka´s militarised northeast have intersected in the wake of civil war. It explores an undertheorized puzzle by asking how the conceptual dualisms between co-operation and contestation simplify the complex lifeworlds of small-scale fishing communities that are often imagined by scholars through allegories of rivalry and resource competition.Drawing on ordinary interpretations and lived practices implicated in the vernacular term sambandam (bearing multiple meanings of intimacy and entanglement), the book traces how intergroup co-operation is both affectively routinised and tactically instrumentalised across coastlines, and at sea. Given its distinct focus on translocal and ethno-religiously plural collectives, the study maps recent historic formations of diverse practices and their contentions, from networked 'piracy' and dynamite fishing, to collective rescue missions and coalitional lobbying.Moreover this work serves as an open invitation to academics, policymakers and activists for re-imagining multiple modes of ethical being and doing, and of everyday sociality among so-called 'deeply divided' societies.               A rich ethnography that pays meticulous attention to a complex social fabric made up of locals, settlers and migrants, with multiple linguistic and religious affiliations, sometimes contending fishing practices, and migration and livelihoods patterns as they have been affected by tsunami, war and the aftermaths of both.  It draws from and speaks to a range of disciplines - from political science and sociology, to critical geography and cultural studies, and contributes to diverse fields of inquiry, including conflict and its relationship to a "cold" peace, coastal/maritime livelihoods, identity, cooperation, and collective action. - Aparna Sundar, Assistant Professor of Politics, Ryerson University By unveiling the vast heterogeneity of fisher migrants and settlers, the book demonstrates in an excellent way how research should not merely focus on the articulations of identity, but more so the inherent properties and qualities of the diverse interdependencies they come to sustain.                       - Conrad Schetter, Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Bonn

European Sustainable Carriage of Goods
52,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work discusses the rapidly developing European transport policy on sustainable freight and the connected efforts initiated by the European Commission (EC) on greening transport by the means of contract law. Greening transport has been a central goal for the EU for decades. The main problem has been, and still is, that far too much carriage of goods within the EU is performed unimodally: by road carriage alone. This has caused severe problems particularly in central Europe, where both trade and environment is suffering from an ineffective transport industry with growing problems of congestion and pollution. A modal shift in transport from mainly road based to a form of transport in which more environmental friendly modes such as rail, inland waterways and sea born transport are integrated into one transport chain, is hence an objective of the EU. If successful, this model could then be extended to the international transport community. The key question raised in this book is whether the traditional role of contract law is changing to such an extent that the parties involved must take external interests into account. In the case of the EU's efforts to enhance sustainable carriage of goods within its realm, the author explores whether governmental interference is necessary, or if we can trust that the parties will integrate environmental issues into their contracts because there is a demand for such clauses. The different proposals for an EU regime on multimodal contracts of carriage are discussed in this context. This book will be of great relevance to academics and practitioners with an interest in EU law, transport law, environmental law and maritime law in general.

Circulation and Urbanization
31,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Circulation and Urbanization approaches the urban through a genealogy of circulation - a concept central to Western political thought and its modes of spatial planning. Locating architectural knowledge in a wider network of political history, legal theory, geography, sociology and critical theory, and drawing on maritime, territorial and colonial histories, Adams contends that the urban arose in the nineteenth century as an anonymous, parallel project of the emergent liberal nation state. More than a reflection of this state form or the product of the capitalist relations it fostered, the urban is instead a primary instrument for both: at once means and ends. Combining analytical precision with interdisciplinary insights, this book offers an astonishing new set of propositions for revisiting a familiar, yet increasingly urgent, topic. It is a vital resource for all students and scholars of architecture and urban studies. This book is part of the Society and Space series, which explores the fascinating relationship between the spatial and the social. These stimulating, provocative books draw on a range of theories to examine key cultural and political issues of our times, including technology, globalisation and migration.
