Ports & Harbors

Ports and Harbors is the official journal of IAPH printed and gets published on a bi-monthly basis in cooperation with our new media partners Mercator Media in UK. IAPH members are entitled to receive a copy at no cost, while non-IAPH members may request subscription for a nominal fee.


In January 2021, a completely revamped IAPH membership magazine, Ports&Harbors, was launched both in print and with a brand-new, online page-turner version for users using the popular ISSUU publication platform by the previous publisher together with the IAPH Policy and Strategy unit. Starting from the March/April 2024 issue, the magazine has been taken over by the new editor Martin Clark and Mercator Media.


A sample issue which was exceptionally made available in May/ June 2023 can be viewed here.


This flagship magazine of IAPH has numerous content enhancements, including insightful opinions with the popular “In conversation with” section with top protagonists inside and outside the port sector, an “Interview” article with a subject matter specialist, and a fun “Quick 10” section where a well-known port personality gets personal. There is also a new debate section dealing with a hot topic impacting ports with the chance for readers to vote online prior to publication. In addition, there are informative “In numbers” and “How to” infographic sections which allow readers key data and information at a glance, complemented with the “lookout” picture article. The magazine also has new cultural sections in the “Creative Side” and “Review” sections, which when added to perspective and feature port articles makes for a completely fresh new look and content for our members’ readership.


The online version has proven to be popular with members given the challenges of pandemic lockdowns with home-based working and print distribution. Both online and print versions exclusive to IAPH members only continue to be planned for 2023.
