Manuel Buitrago’s research includes the development of new models to assess capacity and demand for container seaports in the United Kingdom. These help to understand the role that UK’s port system plays in world logistics networks. In parallel, he is considering the traffic dynamics within the Hamburg–Le Havre range of seaports and analysing how they compete for traffic in the much-contested hinterlands. He is also interested in world-wide market dynamics and global flows of LNG and its role as a greener fuel for the shipping industry.
