Challenges of Heavy Load Logistics in Global Maritime Supply Chains

Abstract : Global trade is steadily increasing and among the vast amount of traded goods are not only standardized cargo but also a selection of large and bulky heavy loads. Heavy loads often require special attention when it comes to identifying suitable shipping and loading means within logistic processes. In this paper the challenges of heavy load logistics are identified and discussed. Whereas the main goal of the paper is to highlight the challenges and problems in this domain, a possible solution approach within the Design for X framework is introduced briefly.
