Chapters cover maritime shipping markets, territories of maritime shipping, institutional dimensions, and environmental and future challenges. With contributions from researchers in a range of disciplines, including geography, economics, law and spatial planning as well as practitioners, the book emphasises the wide-ranging interest in and impacts of maritime transport. Offering empirically rich studies of historical and contemporary geographies of maritime transport, this book also looks ahead to the importance of adaptation and of questioning the effects of the continued economization of maritime transport. Geography, transport economics, logistics and management scholars will appreciate the thorough case studies and in-depth analyses of the topic offered in the book. It will also benefit industry and government representatives looking for a broader understanding of the recent evolution of maritime transport in a globalizing world\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9587597479#Person\/monios_jason<\/a>> ; # Jason Monios<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9587597479#Person\/wilmsmeier_gordon<\/a>> ; # Gordon Wilmsmeier<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/9587597479<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9587597479#Series\/transport_mobilities_and_spatial_change_series<\/a>> ; # Transport, mobilities and spatial change series<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9587597479#CreativeWork\/<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Geographies of maritime transport<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1147902157<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9587597479#Organization\/edward_elgar_publishing<\/a>> ; # Edward Elgar Publishing,<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/public.eblib.com\/choice\/PublicFullRecord.aspx?p=6155245<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=2422326<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.elgaronline.com\/view\/edcoll\/9781788976633\/9781788976633.xml<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781788976640<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1147902157<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
