Bio

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 of transportation and economics as they relate to logistics and global freight distribution. Specific topics over which he has published extensively cover maritime transport systems and logistics, global supply chains, gateways and transport corridors. He has authored 5 books, 25 book chapters, more than 40 peer reviewed papers, numerous reports, and delivered more than 150 conferences and seminar presentations, mostly at the international level. His co-authored paper (with Theo Notteboom) about port regionalization and the development of port / hinterland supply chains became one of the world’s most cited paper in maritime transport.

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 also on the international editorial board of the Journal of Transport Geography and the Cahiers Scientifiques du Transport. 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. Dr. Rodrigue is a member of the World Economic Forum’s Council on the Future of Manufacturing and a board member of the International Association of Maritime Economists. He is also the New York team leader for the MetroFreight project about city logistics. 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.
