Research on the Coordination Mechanisms of Port Service Supply Chain Based on Element Analysis

Guest Editor Yuantao Teng (Jilin Normal University, Shiping City, China)

The port is an important part of the global logistic chain and the port service supply chain evolved from the development of port systems is the general trend of the world shipping industry. However, several reasons exist which result in disorders of port service logistics, giving overall low performance of port supply chain as well as a decline in competitiveness of our port. First, the paper defines the connotation of the supply chain of port services. Then the paper takes a factor analysis of the coordination elements through a questionnaire and expert interviews. On the basis of core elements, we build a framework for coordination mechanism of the port service supply chain, which can facilitate the coordination of the port service supply chain by the effective coordination of the dynamic mechanism, conduction mechanism and security mechanism.
