Enhancing Security Through Efficiency Focus—Insights From a Multiple Stakeholder Pilot Implementation

Sternberg, Henrik LU ; Nyquist Magnusson, Camilla LU and Nilsson, Fredrik LU (2012) In Journal of Business Logistics 33(1). p.64-73
Abstract
Efficiency and security are often regarded as opposing factors in transport operations, with increased security causing decreased efficiency. The use of information technology holds the promise of enabling improved efficiency in freight transport operations and this article suggests and elaborates on the proposition that “An increased focus on efficiency will result in improved security for carrier operations.” The research for this article involved a literature review, the collection of empirical data through one in-depth case study, and elaboration on a proposition through a field pilot implementation. The selected focus was carrier operations in connection with port terminals carrying out RoRo operations on trailers. The article... (More)
