Trade and Logistics: A framework for understanding factors influencing sustainable growth
Optimisation of the off-shore wind supply chain.
Most supply chains studies address the issues faced by a shipper and consider logistics infrastructure and services as hard constraints. But a supply chain is driven by three parties, namely: shippers (i.e. the consignor of goods), logistics service providers and government agencies. Decisions made on policies and infrastructure by governments will affect the logistics services offered and the supply chains and hence have a direct consequence on trade. This work will investigate the various models adopted by different countries from a logistics perspective to develop sustainable trade in the hope of developing a methodology for assessing a country or region’s logistics capability and prescribing a “recipe” of what needs to be done in terms of policies, processes, infrastructure, environmental concerns and other factors to enhance trade. The ideal candidate should have a good foundation in statistical analysis and operations research techniques, familiar with GIS and web development techniques.
