The latest edition of Ports & Harbors, the IAPH membership magazine produced by IHS Markit, now part of S&P Global, is out. Our cover story features an exclusive interview with Carl Benztel of the US Federal Maritime Commission. In conversation with IAPH managing director Patrick Verhoeven and P&h editor Ines Nastali, the commissioner discusses standardising US trade data and making the market more resilient without adding more red tape. He also speaks about the Ocean Shipping Reform Act that is taking shape, which was recently signed off by the Senate and is now being discussed by the House of Representatives. Also featuring in this edition: with several market-based measures proposals on the table for the next MEPC meeting at the IMO, ABL’s Paul Martin looks at how emissions are categorised and the implications for ports. We speak with the chairman of the supervisory board at the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority on the current situation and about the aspirations of Ukrainian ports once the war is over. We also introduce the first instalment of the IAPH World Ports Tracker and present the IAPH 2022 Sustainability Awards finalists’ projects. We have features on the Suez Canal Economic Zone and UK ports, plus our ‘How to’ section focuses on applying for funding in ports with Gyorgyi Gurban from the Department of Partnerships and Projects at the IMO.
