The traditional port world is changing, demographical, technological, and sustainability drivers are affecting the daily business and shaping several important trends. As a port authority, port operator, policy developer or organization active in the port value chain it is important to know which changes will most likely occur and what the outcome will be for the maritime sector, says Deloitte.


According to its report ‘Global Port Trends 2030 – The future port landscape’, it is expected that trade routes, the competitive position of stakeholders, ecosystems, and the cargo distribution will be different as we know it today. Although the exact future of the global ports and shipping industry is still uncertain, it is important for the industry’s stakeholders to consider these trends and to prepare with appropriate policies and strategies.
