Project Description/Abstract

After consultation with port officials, my Massport research project under the FLRG grant has been split into two specific projects. One project is “Impact of Panama Canal Expansion on U.S. Northeastern Ports”. The other project is “Market Analysis on Massport: A Case Study of Massport Boston-Caribbean Cruiseline”. Both research results were presented at Massport on May 10, 2013 and during the dinner reception for the new director of Port of Boston at Pawtucket Country Club on October 30, 2013. I plan to make one more presentation of the Panama Canal Expansion paper at 2014 World Business, Marketing and Management Development Conference (AWBMAMD) in Dubai on August 11-14, 2014. For the Massport Boston-Caribbean Cruiseline paper, I submitted the final paper to Massport on December 22, 2014. My FLRG grant has resulted in three presentations, two research papers and potential journal publication which benefit Massport, Bridgewater and the academic community.
