There is room for enhanced use of information and communication technology to provide decision and operational support at strategic, tactical, and operational levels within maritime logistics. This chapter explains some of the driving forces for this, together with a tested approach and method for this, given into a specific, practical case.
This chapter has drawn upon experiences gained from a set of research projects within maritime logistics at the Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute in which senior researcher Arent Arntzen played a key role. The projects were financially supported by both the Norwegian Research Council and the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association.
