Jade at TOC Asia
Our Director of Marketing, Logistics, Tony Davis and President of Global Sales, Kaustubh Dalvi, will be attending TOC Asia this month.
This is a great opportunity for Jade to take some time to continue building our knowledge of the core issues facing the industry and how we can address them using smart technology.
Every day the industry is faced with new challenges, SOLAS regulations, environmental considerations, increased fuel costs, labor and union issues, are just a few. However, for port operators, underpinning all these is the need to continue to attract new business. Shipping lines are already using larger ships to move greater quantities of cargo, and according to a report by Reuters, the average size of new container ships is set to continue growing over the next five years. The largest ship delivered so far has a capacity of 19,200 TEU, however carriers with capacity up to 21,100 have already been ordered and will be in service later this year.
Are you concerned about shipping lines passing by your port, or your port not having the infrastructure to accommodate these mega-ships? How will that effect your operation? What are the specific challenges facing you at your port? Do you have room to grow or do you need to utilize your existing assets in a more efficient way? These are just some of the questions we help port operators answer every day as we help to streamline their operations and give them the confidence to ensure they will be on that trade route in the future.
