CALL FOR TENDERS: a strategic study for AIVP
Hermeline DELEPOUVE6 November 2018

The AIVP 2030 agenda prepared at the World Conference in Quebec will be proposed for ratification by the year end. It contains nearly a dozen major challenges for port cities in adapting to all the transformations currently occurring and meeting the expectations of our societies at the start of this 21st century. In order to support its members in these challenges as strongly as possible, AIVP would like to review its missions, services offered and organisation. The Board of Directors has therefore decided to carry out a strategic study during the first half of 2019;

12 November 2018

The issue of maritime alliances is the focus of the latest report by the ITF, which shows that the concentration of container ship owners is currently impacting on quality and service. There is real pressure on terminal and port operators, whose development is partly funded by the public sector. The ITF is calling for competition law to be applied in full to shipping, port projects to be assessed on common principles and standards, and finally a rethink of national and supra-regional port policies.
