Abstract: Scientific risk management method is of great significance in reducing accident rate and loss. The 8·12 explosion of Tianjin Port has aroused great concern about the risk of hazardous chemicals logistics in port. In view of the risks existing in port hazardous chemicals logistics, the WSR model of risk management of port hazardous chemicals logistics is constructed through in-depth analysis on Wuli, Shili and Renli. Based on WSR model, 10 important ports are selected for the risk assessment. The risk assessment results show that the less risky ports in hazardous chemicals logistics are Shanghai Port, Ningbo-Zhoushan Port and Dalian Port, and the more risky ports are Tangshan Port and Tianjin Port. Finally, based on WSR Model, we propose a collaborative management framework of the interaction of Wuli-Shili-Renli, and put forward some suggestions for the sustainable development of port security.
