Ports - Developments, Opportunities and Supply Chain


As global trade increases, there are major developments at ports in the UK and overseas - providing opportunities for manufacturers, materials handling and dockside equipment, marine services and transportation & freight-forwarding software & IT.


Information is continuously updated on port authorities, terminal operators, major logistics and distribution organisations, infrastructure projects, port centric and multimodal logistics and other issues which may benefit the supply chain. 


Growth in the Energy sector and implications for Ports - there is also high growth in specific offshore sectors/areas, including wind farms and renewables. This is providing new opportunites for a wide range of manufacturers, subsea and marine services as key ports develop facilities, networks and capabilities to support new energy sites.
