Estimating the Economic Consequences of a Port Shutdown: The Special Role of Resilience

Topics: Supply Chain, Transportation,

This paper evaluates the potential economic impact of seaport disruption, specifically looking at a 90-day disruption scenario at the twin ports at Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas. It then analyzes how resilience solutions could mitigate the economic costs that the ports would suffer, and finds a potential 70% cost reduction, after looking at both direct and indirect costs.
