Port Productivity: Finding Efficiencies in an Inefficient System

Start Date:11/15/2018

Start Time:9:00 AM CST / 10am et

Duration:75 minutes


The rush by container lines to economies of scale is proving something of a double-edged sword for levels of global port and berth productivity. The increasing scale of vessels and rising concentration of alliance volumes clearly creates considerable challenges for port operations, but it also forces key container shipping stakeholders focus more intently on meaningful projects to improve collaboration and leverage maturing technologies for improved operational efficiency. Port productivity data from the JOC and parent company IHS Markit reveal that more than a quarter of total global container moves now involve vessels capable of carrying more than 10,000 TEU. The average number of container moves per port call is now well more than 1,000 globally, and many ports must deal regularly with double-digit percentage increases in the average number of boxes exchanged during calls.


This webcast will leverage the world's largest active port productivity database to deliver unique insights into developments on global, regional, and national levels. It will include discussion and analysis of the most important productivity improvement projects underway globally, how challenges are being overcome, and the opportunities arising to add value through cutting waste and improving efficiency in port operations.
