Content
Globalisation causes strong changes in world trade and rapid developments in logistic concepts. Ports all over the world are therefore challenged to increase capacity and access for ever growing ship sizes and to offer quicker, better and more innovative services. Furthermore national and international rules require a growing attention for health, safety, security and environment in port and transport activities. With these developments in mind, the Port Seminar discusses the planning and design of modern ports and construction and maintenance of port infrastructure.
