Besides the normal uncertainties, unusual events like the current global financial crisis, and even natural disasters and terrorist attacks, can cause significant disruption in operations and cause losses. Risk and uncertainties make revenue management more difficult than before as they have to consider new challenges of demand uncertainty, supply instability and information asymmetry. It has become necessary, and urgent, for enterprises and industries to undertake risk identification, measure and effectively to manage risks, and to reconfigure supply chain structures and revise operational decisions where necessary.

This special issue will put emphasis on the main problems of risk management in the changing new environments of revenue management, and also explore configurations and designs of logistics operations and supply chains coordination based on risk control in revenue management. It invites quality papers covering case studies, empirical studies and quantitative analysis so as to offer solutions to the emerging new challenges. Empirical and cases studies are particularly welcome.
