Despite macro-related fears, global trade continues to boom and this means ever-increasing pressure on ports and terminals.
As part of this rapid growth has seen carriers, operators and stakeholders explore the commercial viability of new shipping routes, such as the Northern Sea Route (NSR), which has itself raised questions over safety and the vessel tracking in areas as remote as the Arctic.
Much has been written about the rate at which ports are expanding and the technologies that will accompany them in the future. This edition continues that conversation and looks at issues and ideas around how to make the movement of vessels easier, safer and more environmentally friendly.
