March – April edition of Ports & Harbors is out

For our March and April edition, we have a cover interview with Karin Orsel, who has been appointed as the first female president of the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA). Karin speaks together with IAPH managing director Patrick Verhoeven about shipping’s resilience in crises, the Fit for Fifty-Five initiative and the Emission Trading Scheme in Europe. We look at changing global trade patterns that are impacting Southeast Asia and what makes the terminal operator ICTSI tick with its executive vice-president. The edition also takes a view on the investments of Grimaldi Group.  The Harbour Life port-city guide on Antwerp-Bruges is reviewed and we have the chief executive of the British Ports Association, Richard Ballantyne, taking us through his busy working day.
