The ports are assessed from the point of view of their economic impact on the territory in which they are located, and of their appeal in terms of investments and the international competitiveness of their infrastructures. The ship-owning industry is analysed through research papers and comparisons between Italian and foreign industry players. Special emphasis will also be placed on the insurance sector.

In addition, it provides an overview of the port of Singapore focusing on the governance structure of cluster within which it operates.

The overall performance of the port is assessed against a range of criteria and different types of operation that take place within the port are explained. In considering the governance structure within which all this takes place, particular attention is paid to the pivotal role of terminal Operator PSA and Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore as the statutory regulatory authority for control, security and the overall development and growth of the port of Singapore, which includes terminal operators. The paper presents, also, an exposition of the next investments in ‘Tuas’ seen as a possible driving force for further growth.

Big Data-based analysis report on world’s top container shipping routes and ship types

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

This paper is written by the Shipping & Port Big Data Laboratory (SPBD-Lab) of the Shanghai International Shipping Institute (SISI). In this report, the SPBD-Lab first divides the world into 31 regions, and then analyzes and studies the shipping routes defined by different combinations of ships connecting these regions, excluding those without any shipping capacity (334 shipping routes).  Then the SPBD-Lab figures out a corresponding performance indicator through comprehensive calculation of various data of each ship type sailing on the shipping routes. The indicator takes into account a slew of factors, such as ship busyness, proportion of newly commissioned ships, speed and shipping capacity to measure whether a ship type is popular on a shipping line, which can serve as a reference for shipping companies when they put ships into service.

The cruise sector: results of an analysis of flows and the impact on competitiveness in Naples’ port system

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

During the 2017, the Naples’s cruise passenger flows have dropped almost 29%. The decline is impressive despite the Italian ports expected slump and the touristic positive trend in Naples. In order to detecting explanatory features about this spread, we have reviewed some studies on cruise shipping. Thereby, we observe unexpected negative spillovers concerning touristic movements and carry out a short analysis of remarkable views in the Mediterranean cruise market. Furthermore, we suggest explanatory instruments both on the supply side and on the demand side. In addition, we realized that conflicting and cooperative cruise flows are able to anticipate the decline in the port of Naples.  Consequently, structural and geo-economic properties may explain the flow’s decrease.  We also have stated a function model with a residual accounting 0.001% on the 2017 Naples’s cruise pax flow. Finally, we have highlighted the role of the currency with a macroeconomic transport approach.
