Abstract

Shipping industry continues to support the development of world trade and globalization of logistics network. Maritime safety has a direct bearing on human life, property and health of the marine environment, therefore, safety has always been the focus of maritime transportation. Total-loss marine accidents present the most serious accident type, which is therefore crucial for decision-making and guidance on rational safety resource allocation to analyze and evaluate its influential factors. This paper selects the data on the total-loss marine accidents that occurred in the world from 1998 to 2018, involving 16 ship types and 13 main navigation sea regions. Based on an improved entropy weight-TOPSIS model, the results show that in the both models with respect to ship type and sea region, the main influential factors are foundering, stranding and fires/explosions. This paper aims to aid the relevant maritime safety authorities such as the International Maritime Organization and ship owners/operators to take effective risk control actions to avoid/reduce the occurrence of total-loss marine accidents in future.
