BIOGRAPHIE : Jean-Paul Rodrigue, docteur en géographie des transports de l’Université de Montréal (1994), est professeur à l’Université Hofstra depuis 1999. Ses thèmes de recherche couvrent le domaine des transports et de l’économie et leurs relations avec la logistique et la distribution mondiale des marchandises. Ses articles sur la régionalisation portuaire et le développement des chaînes d’approvisionnement port / arrière-pays figurent parmi les plus cités au monde dans le domaine. J.-P. Rodrigue a développé une source en ligne d’information sur les transports fortement utilisée et qui a pris la forme d’un manuel, The Geography of Transport Systems, qui en est à sa quatrième édition. Il est un membre senior de l’initiative PortEconomics.eu qui regroupe des leaders académiques mondiaux dans le domaine du transport maritime et exerce des fonctions de conseiller d’organisations et firmes internationales. Entre 2011 et 2016, il a siégé au comité pour l’avenir du secteur manufacturier au sein du Forum économique mondial. En 2013, le secrétaire des Transports l’a nommé membre du conseil consultatif de l’Académie de la Marine marchande des États-Unis.

BIOGRAPHY: Jean-Paul Rodrigue received a Ph.D. in Transport Geography from the Université de Montréal (1994) and has been a professor at Hofstra University since 1999. Dr. Rodrigue's research interests mainly cover the fields transportation and economics as they relate to logistics and global freight distribution. His papers about port regionalization and the development of port / hinterland supply chains are among the world’s most cited papers in the domain. Dr. Rodrigue developed a widely used online reference source about transportation which became a textbook, The Geography of Transport Systems, now in its fourth edition. He is a lead member of the PortEconomics.eu initiative regrouping the world’s leading maritime transport academics and performs advisory and consulting assignments for international organizations and corporations. Between 2011 and 2016, Dr. Rodrigue sat on the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on the Future of Manufacturing. In 2013, the US Secretary of Transportation appointed Dr. Rodrigue to sit on the Advisory Board of the US Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point.


 

PROJET DE RECHERCHE : LA LOGISTIQUE URBAINE NORD-AMERICAINE ET EUROPEENNE : CONVERGENCE OU DIVERGENCE ?

La logistique urbaine fait référence aux moyens par lesquels la distribution des marchandises s’opère dans les aires urbaines, ainsi qu’aux stratégies qui peuvent améliorer son efficacité tout en prenant en compte la congestion et les impacts environnementaux. Elle inclut la fourniture de services pour la gestion des mouvements de marchandises en milieu urbain et pour la fourniture de réponses innovatrices aux demandes des usagers, telles que celles du commerce électronique. La logistique urbaine émerge progressivement comme domaine d’étude académique. Elle est cependant sujette à une fragmentation de ses approches, compte tenu de la diversité des contextes politiques et spatiaux. Face à cette difficulté, l’objectif de cette recherche est de tenter d’identifier les principaux facteurs technologiques, opérationnels, spatiaux, infrastructurels et juridictionnels qui interviennent dans la logistique urbaine et d’analyser de quelle façon ces facteurs convergent ou divergent à travers un corpus de villes nord-américaines et européennes. Les modèles de convergence et de divergence aideront à comprendre ce qui demeure propre à chaque contexte urbain (sujet à des adaptations spécifiques) et ce qui est commun (sujet à des politiques comparatives). Sur ce point, le concept de ‘paysage du fret’ offre une perspective pour comprendre ces modèles de convergence et de divergence.

 

RESEARCH PROJECT: NORTH AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN CITY LOGISTICS: CONVERGENCE OR DIVERGENCE?
City logistics refers to means over which freight distribution can take place in urban areas as well as the strategies that can improve its overall efficiency while mitigating congestion and environmental externalities. It includes the provision of services contributing to efficiently managing the movements of goods in cities and providing innovative responses to customer demands, such as ecommerce. City logistics is gradually emerging as a formal academic field of inquiry. Among the various challenges this field of inquiry is facing, the fragmentation of its approaches because of the wide variety of political and spatial contexts in which it is taking place remains salient. Considering these challenges, the goal of the research is to try to identify the main technological, operational, spatial, infrastructural and jurisdictional factors in city logistics and analyze in which way these factors are converging or diverging across a sample of North American and European cities. The patterns of convergence and divergence would help understand what remains rather unique to each urban context (subject to urban specific adaptations) and what is common (subject to comparative policies). Over this issue, the concept of ‘freight landscape’ offers a perspective to better understand these patterns of convergence and divergence.
