If countries all over the world are to safeguard the strong competitive position of their ports in years to come, investment and operational decisions need to be taken today. And given the extremely dynamic nature of the maritime and port sector, the future will be very different than the present.

It is, however, impossible to predict the future accurately. Instead, we can try to eliminate some of the uncertainty by developing possible future scenarios in the maritime and port sector. Whichever market player gains that insight first will be able to translate it into a competitive advantage.

This book contains the revised papers of a colloquium, all of whom are experts in their field and/or important players from the world of business and policymaking. The book looks ahead at changes in the shipping environment with discussion of how these changes might play out. It is very much an economics based book and will appeal to anyone with a vested interest in shipping.

Specific topics discussed:

  • Maritime trade; future trade flows and effect on shipping and shipping capacity
  • Developments in ship building; for how much longer will ships be produced at their current rate, where will the changes occur?
  • Developments in ports; technology and economics and their effects
  • Changes in port authorities
  • Land based handling and transport
  • Developments in finance, investments, hedging operations, capital markets
Future Challenges for the Port and Shipping Sector will look at shipping from a very holistic point of view and will be especially interesting in these challenging times.
