Logistics Governance and Policymaking
On a policy level, logistics governance relates to how governments manage their role in the transport sector. This means, inter alia, what role the public sector assumes in the provision of logistics services in general, and how related Competent Authorities and Agencies are organized in particular.
Since the 1990s, Professor Lauri Ojala has worked as an expert for several International Financial Institutions (e.g. The World Bank, Asian Development Bank, African Development Bank, and Nordic Investment Bank) in Trade and Transport Facilitation projects in e.g. the Baltic States, Albania, all former states of the Soviet Union, Southern Africa, Greece, Western Balkans, and in Ukraine.
He has also had numerous expert assignments on logistics, transport and maritime policy issues for Ministries of Transport and related Agencies in e.g. Finland, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Italy, Turkey and Mexico.
