Abstract

Maritime supply chain is arguably the most imperative service sector for facilitating intercontinental trade globally. Within these complex supply chain systems, shipping organizations, port authorities, and import-export firms collaborate and cooperate with each other in the broader management context of maritime logistics. Meanwhile, increasing environmental concerns have forced global maritime organizations to implement sustainability in their operation. MGSCM is a recent focus within the sustainable supply chain body of literature with ample room for understanding its challenges and opportunities. With that in mind, the objective of this chapter is to review the literature on the development of GSCM and conceptualizing the notion of MGSCM concept in maritime context derived from GSCM, respectively. This chapter is unique because it addresses the complex dimension of sustainability in maritime supply chain and tries to define it in line with the existing GSCM context. The findings of this chapter show that GSCM can be extended into the maritime perspective to define MGSCM.
