Are you a retail and food logistics provider or customer, freight forwarder or transport operator, or a supporting organisation/association or specialist research institutions in this sector?
We interview Clon Ulrick on why ports matter to all of us and the challenges he sees for the sector. How can we make this critical infrastructure resilient to future shocks and stresses both expected and unexpected?
As part of the ongoing Resilience Shift round-table series, we explored the challenges and opportunities for the resilience of ports and logistics at an event in November.
In another of our Resilience Shift round-table events, we’ll be focusing on the critical infrastructure resilience of ports. It’s an opportunity for various stakeholders and supporting sectors to build a shared understanding of port sector resilience
The event was launching a new initiative by Lloyd’s Register and Lloyd’s Register Foundation called the ‘safety accelerator’ which will focus on a series of challenges around safety on boats and floating platforms. The accelerator will match new technologies/start up companies with large companies that require safety solutions to these challenges and help to ‘incubate’ […]
