IAPH observes the 60th anniversary!
IAPH observed its 60th anniversary on November 7, 2015. On this day back in 1955, IAPH was founded in Los Angeles, USA, with some 100 delegates from 38 ports and maritime organizations in 14 countries gathering to announce the birth of IAPH. Over the past six decades, IAPH has steadily developed into a global alliance of ports, representing today some 180 ports and some 140 port-related businesses in 90 countries. The member ports together handle well over 60% of the world’s sea-borne trade and nearly 70% of the world container traffic.
