The continuing surge in commercial vessel sizes is putting pressure on port authorities to ensure that their ports have the capacity to meet the growing demands.

Ports must also ensure that they can offer safe access to their facilities, including safe and efficient operation at berth under all weather conditions.

In addition, environmental impacts of port expansions such as deepening of existing access channels can be substantial and must be assessed carefully.

This webinar will provide you with new insights into how other ports manage these challenges making the ports more efficient, safer and reducing their environmental footprint towards a more profitable and sustainable future.
