The chains and gears of shipping

The subjects of finance, and freeing of congested logistical gears figured prominently at the just completed American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) convention held this past week in Miami.

Noel Hacegaba, from the Port of Long Beach, was one of several participants on a discussion of “Partnering to Optimize the Supply Chain”.

“Port authorities need to be collaborating, and partner with other port authorities,” in the supply chains of the future, said Hacegaba, who added that ports need to have a focus well beyond the docks.
