The Benefits of the Circular Economy for Companies’ Circular Supply Chains in A French Port Area (Published)

The current situation of depletion and increasing scarcity of renewable and non-renewable natural resources calls for concrete and rapid action by governments, as the planet is currently living on credit. The circular economy can help tackle challenges such as waste gestion, pollution, biodiversity protection and climate change, by reusing production waste and by-products to reduce consumption of resources and safeguard the needs of future generations. The circular economy offers a number of environmental, economic and social benefits. This article presents the benefits of circular supply chains for companies in the Atlantic Port of La Rochelle. We used a qualitative methodology and carried out an in-depth study of 6 companies involved in the port’s circular economy project. The results show a number of benefits, including a reduction ordinary industrial waste, financial savings, a reduction in the consumption of virgin resources and a reduction in carbon impact on circular supply chain.

Benchmark and Competitive Analysis of Port Performances Model: Algeciras Bay, Rotterdam, New York-New Jersey and Tangier Med (Published)

In this research paper four sea ports namely, Tanger Med, Algeciras Bay, Rotterdam and New York-New Jersey has been taken into study to understand and evaluate their efficiency of operations and benchmark them. Port efficiency is the measure of amount of input and output and their ratio. Port efficiency is not solely dependent on port performance. The port performance strategies of the case ports were studied and efficiency variables were found through various literatures. To analyze input and output variables of the ports, efficiency software named Data Envelopment Analysis Program was used to find the most efficient ports. Then the variables for the most efficient ports were benchmarked and ranked. A hypothetical port efficiency model has also been suggested for better efficiency of the ports.
