This research focuses on estimating and understanding the costs and causes of transportation related supply chain disruptions. In-depth interviews with logistics managers were undertaken to investigate how companies perceive transportation related supply chain disruptions and what they are doing to respond and address them. Stated choice experiments were designed to estimate the cost of disruptions for containers in international maritime trade. The results of the discrete choice models indicate that disruption costs are several times larger than traditional values of freight travel time and reliability.
