Shipping Operations Management

Author: I.D. Visvikis
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319623658
Release Date: 2017-10-09
Genre: Law

This book focuses on the management of ship operations, an activity that requires integrative knowledge and technical expertise that spans various disciplines. As such, ship operations personnel are expected to be well-versed with aspects of management, economics, engineering, technology and law. Further, ship operations management requires the ability to identify and neutralize threats and to manage risks and make decisions that will optimize costs and contribute to performance improvements. Despite the fundamental nature of ship operations management, no book has ever attempted to reconcile and compile a comprehensive body of knowledge, while pursuing a coherent, structured and systematic approach. This edited volume addresses that fundamental gap in the extant literature, and brings together a wealth of knowledge from experts in their respective fields. Concretely, it explores issues of organization, technical management, crewing and behavioral issues, chartering and post fixture, risk management, finance, legal aspects of international conventions and regulations, attainment of safety, security and marine insurance, as well as ocean governance and sustainability. As such, the book offers a vital reference guide for maritime companies and organizations, while also serving as a teaching supplement in academic and professional maritime programmes.

Lloyd s MIU Handbook of Maritime Security

Author: Rupert Herbert-Burns
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 1420054813
Release Date: 2008-09-24
Genre: Law

Managing the ever-changing nature and cross-disciplinary challenges of the maritime sector demands a complete understanding of the special characteristics of the maritime space. The complexity of the operations of ships, ports, shipping companies, and naval and coast guard maritime security operations—as well as the economic significance and the inherent security vulnerabilities of global maritime trade—requires a thorough, holistic and adaptable understanding of commercial, law enforcement and naval maritime security phenomena. Written by a team of expert contributors, this book identifies and assesses the issues inherent in developing and implementing maritime security measures. It examines the new maritime security environment, including the different but complementary interests of the shipping industry and national regulatory agencies. The coverage includes analyses of the different threats to maritime security and how they are perceived by different actors in the maritime domain. The editors evaluate the international and national legal frameworks developed for specific sectors and the responses that different nations have given to these initiatives. Comprehensive in scope, the volume addresses security concerns that pertain to a wide spectrum of commercial shipping and maritime security situations, regulatory frameworks, sector-specific vulnerabilities, regional nuances, and port facilities.

Maritime Terrorism

Author: Michael D. Greenberg
Publisher: Rand Corporation
ISBN: 9780833040305
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Political Science

Policymakers have become increasingly concerned in recent years about the possibility of future maritime terrorist attacks. Though the historical occurrence of such attacks has been limited, recognition that maritime vessels and facilities may be particularly vulnerable to terrorism has galvanized concerns. In addition, some plausible maritime attacks could have very significant consequences, in the form of mass casualties, severe property damage, and attendant disruption of commerce. Understanding the nature of maritime terrorism risk requires an investigation of threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences associated with potential attacks, as grounded both by relevant historical data and by intelligence on the capabilities and intentions of known terrorist groups. These risks also provide the context for understanding government institutions that will respond to future attacks, and particularly so with regard to the U.S. civil justice system. In principle, civil liability operates to redistribute the harms associated with legally redressable claims, so that related costs are borne by the parties responsible for having caused them. In connection with maritime terrorism, civil liability creates the prospect that independent commercial defendants will be held responsible for damages caused by terrorist attacks. This book explores risks and U.S. civil liability rules as they may apply in the context of these types of attacks.

Genre: Computers

In a time when threats against the maritime community have never been greater, Maritime Security: Protection of Marinas, Ports, Small Watercraft, Yachts, and Ships provides a single, comprehensive source of necessary information for understanding and preventing or reducing threats to the maritime community. The book defines what comprises the maritime community, including marinas, ports, small watercraft, yachts, and ships. It focuses on the protection of these rather than the protection of cargo in the maritime supply chain, since with the protection of the infrastructural elements it follows that the cargo is secured. In identifying and discussing threats to security, the book includes natural threats such as storms as well as traditional criminal threats and piracy, with especially detailed examinations of terrorism and cybersecurity. It also introduces the US Coast Guard America’s Waterway Watch program, describing the components of the program, its implementation throughout the maritime community, and its successes. By dealing with the security of all areas within the maritime community, Maritime Security is highly valuable to all members of the community, from the local boater to professionals charged with the protection of major ports and seagoing vessels. It gives you the skills to understand, identify, analyze, and address natural and man-made threats to localized or broad sections in the maritime community.
