Strategic implications of network organisation and macroeconomic environment on maritime logistics STRATNET

Awarded: NOK 4.7 mill.

The project analyses effects of network organisation and macroeconomic environment on maritime logistics. We define three part projects. (1) Study changes in the macroeconomic environment, both short-term fluctuations and long term growth focusing the ris k for deflatory development, growth and political risks. We plan several land/regional studies. (2) Analyse the strategic implications of network organisation in international business in general and in maritime industries to identify driving forces behin d network organisation, location decisions and characteristics of operational networks. (3) Strategic positioning of maritime logistics by analysing driving forces with implications on logistics and transport using scenario techniques. We plan an industri al test case to verify the methodology and model. One PhD candidate shall work on the part projects (1). Researchers from SIØS and Marintek will participate in the project together with international researchers. We seek a close contact with the participa ting industry partners. Results will be disseminated both in international research journals and via seminars for the Norwegian maritime industry. 16.10.2006
