Future Challenges for the Port and Shipping Sector discusses the issues that most influence the future of the maritime and port industries. The topics covered include: maritime trade, future trade flows, evolutions in international trade, shipping capacity and demand, developments in ship construction and their economic consequences. The book also covers future developments in ports (technology and economics), the future role of port authorities (the role of national and international public authorities, as well as cooperation between ports), the future development in ports (hinterland transportation, landslide handling, and financial developments), financial developments (alternative financing of investments, hedging operations, mergers and cooperation, and capital markets).
