Effective logistics management has played a vital role in delivering products and services, and driving research into finding ever improving theoretical and technological solutions. While often thought of in terms of the business world, logistics and operations management strategies can also be effectively applied within the military, aeronautical, and maritime sectors.

The Handbook of Research on Military, Aeronautical, and Maritime Logistics and Operations compiles interdisciplinary research on diverse issues related to logistics from an inclusive range of methodological perspectives. This publication focuses on original contributions in the form of theoretical, experimental research, and case studies on logistics strategies and operations management with an emphasis on military, aeronautical, and maritime environments. Academics and professionals operating in business environments, government institutions, and military research will find this publication beneficial to their research and professional endeavors.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer Simulation
  • Game Theory
  • Logistics Management
  • Operations Management
  • Optimization Algorithms
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Transportation Planning

Reviews and Testimonials

Twenty-seven papers propose hybrid artificial intelligence methods for solving modern problems of logistics management and optimization. The contributors analyze the vertex separation problem, random weight generators, quay crane scheduling, military logistics choices, airport capacity, mixed flow impeller blades, and maximum passenger load for aerotaxis to southwestern Chihuahua. Other topics include multi-objective simulated annealing algorithms, Hanoi Towers game theory, intentional food contamination in the food supply chain, temperature modeling in a greenhouse, and the relationship between construction time and crane optimization.
