Description

The annual event addresses the industry's most pressing issues: the absence of deep water container transshipment terminals; inadequate berthing capacity; the lack of an integrated land distribution system - particularly for transit traffic; the lack of essential supporting infrastructure - such as rail systems; congested road networks, bureaucratic bottlenecks; as well as high maritime and freight charges.
