With port tour official TOC Americas 2017 activities begin

The much awaited debut of Lima as the venue for the seventeenth version of the container terminal and operations conference hast finally arrived. Monday October 16 will be the official kick-off of the event’s activities with a port tour of the two most important port operators: North Dock, operated by APM Terminals and South Dock, operated by DP World. 

Attendees will be able to visit both ports’ facilities and see the wide cargo variety and volume handled in one of the key ports in the west coast of South America, reason why Callao was chosen for this year’s venue. TOC Events director, Paul Holloway, commented exclusively for MundoMaritimo saying “we are very excited to be in Peru, becuase we’ve always wanted to be here and now is the right time. We have a fairly high expectation because local support has been outstanding. We’ve received support from port authority, all of the major temrinal operators and all of the relevant media associations. It really makes a difference.

”Precisely, the fishing and aquaculture viceminister and representative for the production ministry of the National Port Authority, Héctor Soldi Soldi, will be delivering the keynote speech along with Edgar patiño, APN president.

Why Latin port, shipping and supply chain security is getting more complex - and what it means for training

Developing holistic training that incorporates the growing breath of security disruptions including business continuity challenges, cyber issues and localized and international security protocols is crucial if ports, shipping and shippers are to withstand increasing regulatory scrutiny and maintain supply chain efficiency in unpredictable times, says BSI’s Philippa Williams in this guest editorial ahead of TOC Americas 2017 in Peru

Identifying the possibility for disruption in global, complex supply chains can be daunting in any sector. In shipping and ports, it can sometimes seem like an impossible task. Where to start amid the myriad political, economic, physical security and cyber breakdowns that can potentially affect port sector operations, customs operations and shipping contracts?

Into the shipping storm: facing new and coming realities in the Americas

Global shipping industry consolidation and alliances will prompt a major shake-up in Latin American service structures in 2018-19. Container terminals across the region now need to develop a more nuanced approach to value, pricing and utilisation, argues Michael Kaasner Kristiansen in this guest editorial ahead of TOC Americas 2017

Container shipping industry consolidation has continued in recent months with Cosco’s proposed USD 6.3 billion acquisition of OOCL. There seems only one major hurdle left for Maersk Line to acquire Hamburg Süd - regulatory approval from Brazil, where both lines command significant reefer market share. The recent deal for CMA to buy Brazil-flagged Mercosul Line from Maersk is intended to help with this. If we fast-forward to final integration of Japan’s Ocean Network Express (ONE), that brings the number down of container carriers with a global market share of 1% or more down to just 12.
