New Paper in American Journal of Transportation and Logistics

My colleague and I and a student recently published a new paper in the American Journal of Transportation and Logistics.  You can see it below.  The paper is based on a presentation made at the International Association of Maritime Economists’ 2017 annual meeting in Japan.

The paper is about Ocean Trading Intermediaries (OTI’s) and their distribution across the US. The data came from the Federal Maritime Commission’s lists of registered US and foreign OTIs, which includes Ocean Freight Forwarders and Non Vessel Owning Ocean Carriers.  WE discuss the history, legal framework, and current conditions facing OTIs and make special reference to the Chicago area, in which a cluster of these businesses has arisen.

We used statistical cluster analysis to show that despite the belief that ocean freight forwarding is becoming more technology driven and thus able to locate anywhere, the businesses still choose to form clusters in major ports.
