Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine operation, said: “Spending these increased budgets strategically is what could really help ports to increase efficiencies. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be happening. The report revealed that, although optimism is returning, 61% of contractors and consultants feel their clients are concerned by upfront purchase costs, rather than prioritising whole life value.”

Hepworth concluded that “as the market continues to strengthen, there’s an opportunity arising for those that can get ahead of demand and invest strategically now.  Those that don’t will suffer as new, modern terminals multiply and others quickly upgrade.”
