Transportation networks play a crucial role in human mobility, the exchange of goods and the spread of invasive species. With 90 per cent of world trade carried by sea, the global network of merchant ships provides one of the most important modes of transportation. Here, we use information about the itineraries of 16 363 cargo ships during the year 2007 to construct a network of links between ports. We show that the network has several features that set it apart from other transportation… Expand
The worldwide maritime network of container shipping: Spatial structure and regional dynamics
Port and maritime studies dealing with containerization have observed traffic concentration and dispersion throughout the world. Globalization, intermodal transportation, and technologicalExpand
The complex network of ship movements in Europe submitted in partial fulfillment for the degree of master of science
Inspections of marine ships play a pivotal role in maintaining a clean and safe worldwide environment. In this work, we will contribute to insight regarding the inspection regime by examining shipExpand
Estimating the global container shipping network using data and models
The need for developing a model capable of representing container flows at global level has been recognized for some time now. The nature of container shipping network is different to that of otherExpand
Spatial Pattern and Regional Relevance Analysis of the Maritime Silk Road Shipping Network
Under the strategy of “One Belt and One Road”, this paper explores the spatial pattern and the status quo of regional trade relevance of the Maritime Silk Road shipping network. Based on complexExpand
Empirical analysis of the container liner shipping network on the East-West corridor (1995–2011)
The shipping network plays an important role in the operation of container liner shipping. It provides a system on which transportation activities take place. This article aims to study theExpand
Complexity in human transportation networks: a comparative analysis of worldwide air transportation and global cargo-ship movements
TLDR
A comparative network-theoretic analysis of the two largest global transportation networks is presented and it is concluded that dynamic processes that evolve on both networks are expected to share universal dynamic characteristics. Expand
Urban gravity in the global container shipping network
While the spatial and functional relationships between ports and cities have been put in question in the last decades, the continued importance of urbanization and maritime transport in globalExpand
Analysis of the air cargo transport network using a complex network theory perspective
TLDR
This is the first work where a global cargo network comprising passenger airlines, full-cargo airlines, and integrators’ capacity was studied, and it was shown how different attack strategies result in hubs of hub-and-spoke systems or airports behaving as bridges between communities being attacked first. Expand
Analysis of the global maritime transportation system as a layered network
TLDR
A flow-based model is developed that directs the aggregate movement of goods between ports on the shortest and/or cheapest available route, and uses re-routing strategies if a route segment becomes impassable for container ships. Expand
Statistical Properties of Links of Network: A Survey on the Shipping Lines of Worldwide Marine Transport Network
TLDR
Analysis of the links’ properties of networks by taking the Worldwide Marine Transport Network (WMTN) as an example, it is observed that the topological quantities increase smoothly when marine companies are randomly merged, while the relative entropy decreases when the merging sequence is determined by the Jensen–Shannon distance.

The emergence of hub/feeder networks in the Singapore-Japan corridor through the 1970s and 1980s reflected not only the rapid growth of containerized cargo in regional Southeast and East Asia butExpand
The worldwide air transportation network: Anomalous centrality, community structure, and cities' global roles
TLDR
It is found that the worldwide air transportation network is a scale-free small-world network, and it is demonstrated that the most connected cities are not necessarily the most central, resulting in anomalous values of the centrality. Expand
Empirical analysis of the worldwide maritime transportation network
In this paper we present an empirical study of the worldwide maritime transportation network (WMN) in which the nodes are ports and links are container liners connecting the ports. Using theExpand

TLDR
A coupled human-environment framework is applied to describe the historical spread of Aedes albopictus, a competent mosquito vector of 22 arboviruses in the laboratory, to remap the global transportation network in terms of disease vector suitability and accessibility. Expand
Analysis of Network Effect in Port and Shipping System Characterized by Scale-Free Network
TLDR
The development, properties and some researches of scale-free networks were summarized and it was seen that some complex network characters in a certain domain come from the influence of network benefits in the production network. Expand
The role of the airline transportation network in the prediction and predictability of global epidemics
TLDR
A stochastic computational framework for the forecast of global epidemics that considers the complete worldwide air travel infrastructure complemented with census population data and defines a set of quantitative measures able to characterize the level of heterogeneity and predictability of the epidemic pattern.

Small-world properties of the Indian railway network.
TLDR
Rigorous analysis of the existing data shows that the Indian railway network displays small-world properties and several other quantities associated with this network are defined and estimated. Expand

Globalisation, deregulation, logistics integration and containerisation have reshaped the port and shipping industry. Port and maritime companies are challenged to redefine their functional role inExpand
Modeling the world-wide airport network
TLDR
A new model is proposed that explains the behavior of the world-wide airport network in terms of the geo-political constraints that affect the growth of the airport network and hypothesizes that in other infrastructures, critical locations might not coincide with highly-connected hubs. Expand
