Global Ports Special Report

As the new year turned, hopes were that 2022 would be the year for post-pandemic and post-lockdown re-openings and recovery. Instead, it became the year of war, inflation, energy and commodity price crises, drought and floods. 

This special report will take a deep dive into how global ports are responding to this growing list of exceptional crises. We'll look at the groundwork they are laying for the green energy transition and how they prepare and plan resilience in the face of climate change.

On the front line, labour challenges will remain a key feature of 2023 as global unrest continues to bite. Meanwhile, diversity and inclusion have climbed up the boardroom agendas of ports. 

All this comes as global ports face increasing regulatory oversight. With carbon counting regulations and carbon taxes bedding in this year [2023], ports already have an eye towards the incoming Maritime Single Window coming into force in 2024. 

Co-operation, collaboration and partnerships will be needed now more than ever, if ports are to ride out the brooding economic storms.
