Project Description

This opportunity will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.

Shipping lines invest heavily on ship and container assets to provide maritime transport services to shippers. Due to the capital-intensive nature to provide regular shipping services, horizontal competition between shipping lines is fierce. The recent bankruptcy of the large shipping line, Hanjin Shipping, is one of the examples. Cooperation between shipping lines such as alliances and slot-sharing has been popular and co-exists with competition in container shipping. This project aims to model the competition and cooperation in container shipping supply chains. Cooperative/non-cooperative game approach and/or multi-agent-based simulation approach may be used to develop the models.
