Kurzfassung auf Englisch: The shipping industry is known for providing transportation service at sea in terms of
deploying vessels and accessing ports, making the shipping service itself one of the
network-based services. From the perspective of traditional as well as neo-economics,
the shipping industry is assumed to pursue profit maximization under the constraints
of scarce resources, e.g. capital, assets, seafarers, or binding constraints derived from
schedules, etc. In addition, in case that we are looking at the liner shipping business
from the perspective of games, more and more players are getting involved in the
shipping industry and most of them are becoming rational considering
interdependencies among them. In other words, players do not only focus on their
own businesses.
Taking into account their interdependencies and inter-relations, game theory provides
a meaningful possibility to model and analyze the behaviors of the involved players in
the liner shipping industry. The players in the liner shipping industry could be some or
any of the following: linkage operators, e.g. liner shipping carriers, port operators,
freight forwarders, customs, hinterland haulage carriers, inland navigation carriers,
market regulators, etc. Generally speaking, liner shipping carriers and seaport/dry port
operators are main players who operate the links and nodes, respectively. This thesis
provides a well-groomed research on the liner shipping business, and some part of the
analysis applies game theoretical approaches for vertical and horizontal cooperation
among the links and nodes in the liner shipping industry.
