Abstract

Ports are considered as important supply chain nodes, and they are often claimed to generate disturbances. The main purpose of this paper is to find out what kinds of disturbances occur in port processes in different supply chains and the importance of fluent port operations for the supply chain disturbance management. This study employs case study approach, utilizing both findings of relevant identified extant research and empirical data. The findings of the study confirm the role of port operations as a vital part of supply chain disturbance management.
