Strategic Cargo Management by Air Transport: Safety Aspects
Purpose: The aim of the research is to indicate the essence of strategic air transport management in the direction of security. Approach/Methodology/Design: The analysis of the literature review, the "case study" method, expert interviews and statistical analysis of the obtained data were used in order to formulate generalized conclusions that will be used to build reliability and safety models, and then to develop the concept of an IT support system. Findings: The problem of managing the transport of strategic goods is poorly recognized. The outsourcing of transport services to military entities takes place regularly and is an effective strategy to support PAF in the field of specialists and means of transport, Studies have found that PAF has a large number of errors. Companies that provide transportation services to military entities should be also prepared for securing side quests. As a result of the research, the strategy implementation procedures transport of goods, including procedures for commissioning transport from a civil carrier were founded. The frequency of adverse events that affect safety. The implementation of transport processes were also identified. Practical Implications: The conducted research will allow in the next stage to develop a detailed model management of the transport of strategic goods in the context of its safety. They will also make it possible to estimate the level of risk in particular phases model and allow us to develop organizational solutions that eliminate or limit frequency of adverse events. Originality/Value: The variety of research methods used and a comprehensive overview of interature allows us to clearly confirm the originality of the study.
