Resilience Shift Round-table: Ports and logistics

As part of the Resilience Shift round-table series a meeting was held in London on 26 November 2018 to explore the challenges and opportunities for the resilience of ports and logistics.

Senior leaders representing Hapag-Lloyd, the Port of Tilbury, P&O Ferrymasters, Associated British Ports, the UK Major Ports Group, Peel Land and Property Group, Arup, Lloyd’s Register, the National Infrastructure Commission and the UK Chamber of Shipping, came together for the day-long meeting hosted by the Resilience Shift’s Technical Advisory Group. The discussion was predominantly focused on the UK, but participants could draw on international experience.

The round-table provided an opportunity for participants to consider the role of resilience thinking for sea ports and associated logistics operations. The event was designed to stimulate conversation among port operators and stakeholders associated with their supply chains and to cultivate a network of decision-makers within the sector.

The purpose of this report is to capture the discussion as a reference point for possible future activity – both in terms of how to engage people in a resilience focused activity (the approach) and in terms of identifying sector strengths (the insights) to consider areas for action.

Please note that this report represents issues raised by participants on the day, as captured by the Resilience Shift’s Technical Advisory Group, who facilitated the meeting. This does not necessarily represent the wider views of the organisations represented.
