Dong-Wook Song is Korean Chair and Professor of Maritime Economics and Logistics at the World Maritime University, Sweden. Prior to the current post, he worked at Edinburgh Napier and Heriot-Watt University in the UK, and Hong Kong University. He holds a BA(Hons) with First Class in Shipping Management from Korea Maritime University, an MSc in International Shipping and Logistics, and a PhD in Maritime Economics and Logistics from the University of Plymouth, UK. He also attended an Industrial Economics Course at the London School of Economics.

Professor Song has received such academic awards as ‘The Maritime Policy and Management Award for the Best Paper’ at the International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME) Annual Conferences in 1999 and 2001; ‘The Best Paper Award’ at the Asian Association of Shipping and Logistics in 2008; and ‘The Best Paper of the Year 2009’ at the “International Journal of Logistics Research and Application”. He is a Chartered Member of The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, and has held a number of visiting posts at universities in the UK, France, Belgium, Norway, Singapore, Malaysia, China, and Trinidad and Tobago.

He is currently an Editor-in-Chief of “WMU Journal of Maritime Affairs”, a former Associate Editor (2011-2018) of “Maritime Policy and Management”, and sits on editorial boards at highly regarded transport and logistics journals. He has worked as a consultant for a number of private and public organisations including the UN, OECD, ADB and World Bank. Professor Song served IAME, a premier academic association in the field of maritime transport and logistics, as an elected Council Member for twelve years (2004-2010; 2012-2018), being among the longest serving Council Members for the Association.

A recent article appeared in “Marine Policy” (2023) shows that his works in the field of port competition, co-operation and competitiveness make him to be among the top 10 most influential researchers over the last two decades (1999-2022). A recent bibliometric analysis published at “Maritime Policy and Management” (2021) indicates that his research outputs for the last twenty years are among the top in the maritime logistics field. One of his co-authored papers in 2006 is enlisted by Google Scholar (2017) as a classic paper in the entire field of transportation. In addition, an article in “Transport Reviews” (2013) shows that his works in port research are highly ranked – among the top listed over the last three decades (1980-2009). Another article in “Maritime Policy and Management” (2013) lists his two papers, published in 2003 and 2002, are among the top 30 most cited papers over the whole forty-year-history of the journal (1973-2013). His prolific-but-impact-bearing-refereed publications are a product from his keen interest in managerial and strategic aspects of global shipping, port and logistics. See Citation Index for more of his research works.
