Port Resilience

Research Center: 
MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics
Research Topic(s): 

MIT CTL is a funded partner in the “National Center for Secure & Resilient Maritime Commerce (CSR).” In response, CTL has initiated the MIT Port Resilience Project, which will focus on developing resilient and secure ports. CSR is a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Center of Excellence (The Center for Maritime, Island, and Port Security), which was launched in July 2008 with the Stevens Institute of Technology as the lead institution.

The MIT Port Resilience Project builds upon CTL’s deep and continuing research on supply chain resilience, supply chain risk management, and supply chain security (see Port Resilience – Reports and Publications for relevant CTL references). MIT’s role in the new Center of Excellence is developing the principles and actions for making ports resilient to disruptions.
