Transport and Shipping Research Group

The Transport and Shipping Research Group (TSRG) seeks to advance thinking on the interactions between transport modes and methods in complex operating environments and to disseminate key findings through publications in relevant leading business and management journals.

The Group conducts research in the areas of:

  • transport operations
  • shipping and transport economics
  • air transport operations
  • trade, transport and maritime law
  • supply chain management: humanitarian and emergency supply chains
  • sustainability in transport
  • modelling and simulation of supply chains
  • transport networks.

TSRG aims to direct its output into operational practices and to improve policy decision-making in these areas.

Collaborative research

Academics from the TSRG also participate in Cardiff University’s multidisciplinary Sustainable Places Research Institute.
