The global economy has experienced substantial changes in the past decades. They are not only unprecedented, but also far-reaching which effect on all walks of lives. Being the arteries of the global economy, transport, logistics and supply chains continue to evolve and adapt to the new phenomena, and have together become an integrated service professional. In this regard, being the nodal points, ports will play pivotal roles. Understanding such, Port Focal Logistics and Global Supply Chains investigates the trends and challenges that ports, logistics and supply chains have tackled in recent decades, and the appropriate way forward. A new concept, namely, port focal logistics is introduced which appreciates the efforts by previous studies in ports, logistics and supply chains, but simultaneously recognize the limitations, and the need for further improvements. Drawing experiences from both the developed and developing world, it provides first hand insight on the development strategies undertaken by ports, logistics and supply chain stakeholders around the world under diversified, often uncertain, circumstances, and thus provides scholars, policymakers, and industrial practitioners a comprehensive view on this rapidly changing sector.
