Business Continuity Plans for Port Logistics (collaborative research)

Considering the current situation of Japan which faces a variety of risks from natural and man-made hazards, such as huge earthquakes, storms, border conflicts and terrorism, our research section attempts to develop a cutting-edge and sophisticated BCP (Business Continuity Plan) for port logistics, to cope with sudden
disruption of the supply chain of goods in a global, regional and local context. Our focus will be on the following research:
1) Risk governance of international transportation and trade.
2) Improvement of BCP for port logistics.
3) Comprehensive disaster prevention and security measures for sea ports.
