Abstract—Nowadays, with the growth of international merchandise trade, the role of the maritime transportation becomes crucial. Selecting the most suitable ship, in order to transport the cargo from an origin port to a destination port, among multiples alternatives is a complex decision process due to the presence of multiple and conflicting criteria. This paper proposes a decision approach based on Decision Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) methodology to determine influential ship selection criteria in maritime transportation industry. Real-world data will be used to illustrate the application of the proposed approach.

Index Terms—maritime supply chain management, ship selection, DEMATEL, criteria weighting
