Article
Full-text available
COVID-19 has dramatically impacted the organization of value chains and the pattern of international trade. The manufacturing sector has had to act resiliently, and the maritime sector was no exception. Container shipping lines have adapted their routes, services and fleet deployment with direct effects on many port activities. Our analysis focuses...
Article
Full-text available
The numerous Artic port industrial complex projects are currently marked by a lack of both railroad and road infrastructures and require a heavy cargo shipping service. Yet, navigation in the Arctic implies facing harsh sailing conditions. To prevent risk arising from this singular region, the IMO Polar Code imposes mandatory tools as the Polar Shi...

Full-text available
An evaluation of the competitiveness of the Northern Sea Route (NSR) for container shipping services, considering ice thickness changes during the year, is presented in the present work. The variation in ice thickness has three implications. Firstly, it entails a probability of blockage in ice and reduces the number of days in which a round-trip li...
Article
The development of Arctic ports was critical for the USSR and is still crucial for the Russian economy on account of its high dependence on oil and gas resources. National production zones are mainly located far from international consumption areas. Recent years have seen numerous projects in the Arctic with foreign direct investments which in turn...
Article
Arctic shipping is controversial due to the trade-off between its positive economic impact and its negative environmental effects. As both effects are affected by the uncertainty related to sailing conditions encountered along the route, we develop a model that estimates how ice conditions change the probability of blockage along the route and play...
Article
Over the last decade, more than 500 maritime accidents have been reported in the Arctic, and the political will of the Russian government to develop the Northern Sea Route (NSR) for the exportation of raw materials may lead to a rise of such events. However, data on insurance claims in the Russian Arctic are rather sketchy and not updated which has...
Article
Navigation via the Northern Sea Route (NSR) requires specific vessels in comparison with the Suez Canal Route (SCR). We develop a profit decision model that defines the best option mixing the shipping lane (NSR or SCR) and the ice-class of the vessel (1A, 1AS, and Open Water (OW)) for oil producers operating in the Russian Arctic zone. The effects...
Article
The western part of the Russian Arctic between the Kola and Yamal peninsula is a huge deposit of oil and gas. The various project aiming to exploit the oil and gas fields and to update ports or build them from scratch and are the evidence of a Russian strategy based on economic development. Because of the remoteness of the hydrocarbons resources an...
Article
Arctic cruise shipping is an emerging tourism sector subject to fast growth. Eight countries surround the Arctic, which implies that the governance and policymaking occurs in a complex, and multi-jurisdictional regulatory context. We have an incomplete understanding of how such emerging sector is structured and evolve. Institutional analysis provid...
Book
This book considers both the present state of Arctic shipping and possible future trends with reference to the various sectors of maritime transportation: cruise tourism, container traffic and bulk shipping. Ports are analysed as tools that support the strategies of coastal states to foster the development of resource extraction, enhance the attrac...

Chapter
La Route Maritime Nord (RMN) est un sujet qui depuis quelques années avec la diminution de la couverture de glace et de son épaisseur et les découvertes de son potentiel énergétique fait couler beaucoup d’encres. Si la RMN a un véritable potentiel économique à plusieurs niveaux, elle n’est pas exempte de contraintes plus ou moins lourdes. Cependant...
Conference Paper
The Western Russian Arctic seabed, due to the huge quantity of oil and gas, is subject to numerous investment and drill like in the Yamal peninsula with the port of Sabetta. Extreme climate conditions and remoteness impact negatively the cost of transportation of raw materials and so the use of ice or polar class vessels due to the ice. In order t...
Article
Full-text available
This data article includes the datasets of the mean and the standard deviation of ice thickness in a set of sailing zones for a sailing route that goes through the Northern Sea Route (NSR) between Murmansk and Pusan. The route under consideration is between the longitudes 33° 45′ 0″ and 129° 3′ 60″ and the latitudes 69° 24′ 27″ and 35° 6′ 0″ that c...
Article
Full-text available
This paper aims at a systematic analysis of previous academic research on port marketing. First, we posit that port marketing is multidisciplinary by essence, and we analyze whether our assumption is reflected in the academic literature. Second, this paper aims at identifying the theoretical foundations of port marketing in the academic literature....

Ensuring safe navigation is paramount for the economic development of the Arctic. Aware of this strategic issue, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), supported by the Arctic coastal states, adopted the Polar Code with a set of navigation tools including the well-known Polar Operational Limit Assessment Risk Indexing System (POLARIS). Desi...
Article
The existing risk weighing on vessel, crew and ecosystem in the Arctic and more globally in Polar waters promoted the adoption of the Polar Code (PC) early 2017, a mandatory international legal framework intended for enhanced safety and environmental protection. While the substance of the PC has been extensively analyzed, few studies have focused o...
Conference Paper
Navigation via the Northern Sea Route (NSR) shortcut compared to the SCR (Suez Canal Route) requires the use of specific vessels in which resistance to ice-thickness, speed, daily fuel consumption and operational expenditures vary in regards to their ice class level. These parameters impact their productivity and profitability. We explore a decisio...
Article
This article proposes a decision model for a ship-owner who contemplates the benefits of sailing north via the Northern Sea Route (NSR) or south via the Suez Canal Route (SCR) when transporting oil products from Russia to Asia. The decision is based on potential cost and transit time savings that change on a monthly basis according to sailing condi...

Conference Paper
With the extent and thickness of ice along the Northern Sea Route (NSR) significantly decreasing, the number of Arctic transits has increased from 4 ships in 2010 to 53 in 2014. This number is expected to increase further due to the exploitation of Arctic gas and oil resources despite the fact that the NSR remains a risky area. The harsh climatic c...
