Abstract:

At this seminar, Dr Wang is going to present his ongoing research on the calling and service patterns of all container shipping lines made to China in 2006. Since the mid-1990s when China started to have its first call of foreign shipping line, the port development has been extremely fast both in terms of the scale of individual ports and the total number of ports called. Academics and industries are concerned about the competition among ports and competitiveness of individual port in this country. However, before any serious research can be done on this direction, the first thing we need to do is to analyze this market and verify it maturity. In this presentation, Dr Wang is to share some of his analytical results about how 42 shipping lines calling 22 Chinese ports.
