  • Description:
    In the last decades, a number of factors have re-shaped the shipping industry, including the growth of international trade, the emergence of new markets, and the development of multimodal supply chains. This has led maritime transportation system, which includes ocean and coastal routes, and inland waterways, along with other modes of transportation such as, railways, roads, and air-freight to become a critical part of the global supply chains and freight transportation systems. Due to the complexity of such a system: a growing number of systems that are interconnected and working together to achieve a purpose; a system dynamics approach is used in the literature to simulate maritime transportation system and its integration within the supply chain, into the U.S. surface transportation system modes of truck and rail. In the initial phase of this research, an integrative literature review of applications of system dynamics in the maritime transportation system was conducted. The results of this early research provides an overview of system dynamics model applicability in the maritime transportation system and can prosper future research in the field, such as developing a systems dynamic framework model to aid with decision-making strategies that will lead to the improvement of the efficiency of the system.
