Australian Maritime Logistics Research Network

Australia relies heavily on the vibrancy of its maritime industry i.e. shipping, port, and supporting sectors. Nearly 99% of Australia’s foreign trade in terms of volume go through her ports, according to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development.

Maritime logistics is therefore critical to Australia’s economy. It is envisaged that there is a need for a consolidated approach to create opportunities for maritime logistics research through improved network, shared resources and synchronised effort to optimise outcomes in Australia.

Therefore, the Australian Maritime Logistics Research Network (the “AMLR Network”) is established to connect academics with academics in the field of maritime logistics, as well as with industry professionals and organisations that have interest in maritime logistics research and related activities in order to achieve the synergy in producing the following key outcomes:

  • Applications for national and international research grants,
  • Development of a team with comprehensive knowledge and experience for advocacy and advice to Government dealing with maritime logistics policy issues,
  • High-impact joint research publications,
  • Joint HDR supervision, and
  • Consultancy.
