The cover interview of the September-October issue of your favourite port lifestyle magazine features Gene Seroka, executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, who spoke to us about the congestion issues the maritime supply chain currently faces and how IAPH and many stakeholders can work together to make the market more resilient. Other highlights in the latest edition of Ports & Harbors include an interview with Robin Li Yubin, deputy general manager of our new member China Merchants Port Holdings, a deep dive into the critical issue of cybersecurity with opinion pieces, a readers’ poll, and analysis coinciding with the launch of the IAPH Cybersecurity Guidelines. This edition also contains a project focus on South Africa as well as an analysis of Sub-Saharan trade opportunities. On the lighter side, we have IMO secretary-general Kitack Lim answering ten personal questions and a tale of an ancient Roman port. And we used the summer holidays to review a harrowing tale of Antarctic exploration. Finally, we are proud to introduce two new features. We welcome Paddy Rodgers as our first P&H columnist. With his column, the former Euronav tanker CEO and present director of the Greenwich National Maritime Museum will be providing us with his robust views on the maritime industry, starting with an interesting perspective on scale in shipping. The feature ‘In Court’ presents lessons from court proceedings and alternative arbitration, starting with an insolvency case.
