Maritime transportation plays a vital role in the global economy. Growing freight volumes are driving the demand for larger infrastructure and increased operational efficiency. Vessels are getting bigger and ports need to invest in order to keep up with demand whilst meeting local environmental standards.
In the last decade, global shipping has experienced explosive growth. Increasing world trade, developing markets in Africa, Latin America and Asia and the relatively low cost of transportation have all contributed to this. Globalization has also led to increased competition among ports and a call for more efficient operations in the sectors.
