Port-centric logistics has forced its way to the forefront of the industry conversation after new demands have fallen upon the sector in the shape of efficiency, sustainability and utilization of space.
Senior Consultant with Port Technology, Richard Joy, said: “Port-centric logistics is a subject that came up time and again at our 2019 events, usually with regard to new strategies ports and terminals can implement to get one-step ahead of the competition.
